Posted on 27 July 2016

Are you looking for a 4K UHD TV on a budget? Hitachi 49HGT69U will go easy on your pocket while not giving you much to complain about. Hitachi TV is not flawless but it is a great option for many reasons. One of those features is the user interface which they have kept pretty simple. There is a main menu which features a number of tabs.

What It Offers
The Hitachi TV set is supported with SmarTVue platform which comes with YouTube, Flickr and some other social media apps. Both YouTube and Netflix can be accessed directly from the remote control. It also supports 4K Netflix streaming so yes good news if you are a Netflix fan.

Resolution
For its price the picture quality is good with HD content. Additionally it offers a rich color palette and shadow detail. On the downside, the model doesn’t support HDR content which means you won’t be able to enjoy the bright peak highlights or deeper colors available in a 4K Blu-ray player. That being said, overall, the picture quality is decent and can be compared to other TVs in the same range, which is a definite plus point.

Sound Quality
Sound quality is good because the TV makes a fulsome enough noise, because it features the DTS TruSurround DSP processing which is good when it comes to adding weight to the midrange. This adds up to clarity of voices. So, even if there is noise in the other room, you would be able to enjoy your favorite TV series without any trouble.

Although not the best 4K TV available in the market, considering the price it is not a bad deal. Overall this Hitachi TV is worth your money. Hence, if you are on a tight budget but want a big screen TV that delivers high quality pictures and decent enough sound, you should not hesitate and get the Hitachi 49HGT69U.

Posted on 25 July 2016

Acer introduced the Aspire S13 in competition with Macbook. Acer claims their laptop is half the price of what the competition is offering.

Here is a look at some other features to see if they are actually offering anything new.

Design
The model is currently available in 2 colors. Acer Aspire S13 is both slim and light, weighing only 1.3kg for the non-touch model. Because of its light weight, it’s easy to carry around. The downside of its slim and light design is it can bend and creak when put under pressure.

Resolution
The laptop has a 13.3-inch display along with an IPS screen and a Full HD resolution. Not too bad if you feel like watching your favorite TV show. The 1920×1080 resolution is pretty decent if you compare it to Acer’s other laptops and its competitor’s laptops in the market.

Storage

Battery Life
The Aspire S13 offers battery life of up to 13 hours for the touch model. For its non-touch model, it has a battery life of 11 hours. It’s not impressive but if you want a portable laptop, it’s a good choice because of its light weight.

So, as you can see, the Acer Aspire S13 offers you great value for your money, especially if you are looking for a compact laptop.
