TV Picks For The Big Game

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

There’s probably no annual event more focused on the TV than the game that decides the champion of the NFL. We can’t use its name, but you know the game we’re talking about. New England and Seattle will be battling it out next Sunday and it’s going to be…Super.

If your TV’s not up to snuff, there’s no better time to buy one than right now. Whether you’re springing for a big screen for your den or a secondary TV for the kitchen or bathroom, we’ve got what you need. In this list of TV suggestions, we’ve highlighted models from a variety of brands, at all price points, with every feature you can imagine. With one of the largest TV inventories anywhere, all of the TVs listed below are in stock and ready to be taken home. Order by January 23rd and receive free nationwide shipping in time for the Big Game.

 

The Second String- Samsung 24″ Black 720P LED Smart HDTV 

This guy is a perfect secondary TV, so folks grabbing a bite to eat or heading to the bathroom won’t miss out on any of the action. It’s small enough to fit on a shelf but large enough to get a decent view of the game. And built-in Smart functions mean it can access the web, so you can get updated game stats, replay the best commercials or talk trash to your buddies on Facebook.

The Affordable 40- Toshiba 40″ Black 1080p LED HDTV

If you ask us, 40″ is the absolute minimum size for a den where more than a couple people will be watching. Years ago, even a 40-incher was costly. Today, you can pick up this 40″ Full HD LED TV from Toshiba for just under $300. Perfect TV for that first apartment or basement rec room. (more…)

4K TVs at CES: Abt Checks Out Sony’s UHDTV Sets

Sony’s Bravia 4K TVs at CES 2013. Stunning picture quality and sound to match.

CES 2013— 4K TVs are out in force at CES 2013. The tech that everyone in the audio/visual world has been buzzing about, and we spotlighted recently, is moving beyond the introductory stage. CES 2013 saw manufacturers release details for multiple models utilizing the ultra high resolution format, which uses 4 times the pixels as a standard 1080p HDTV. Leading the charge is Sony, whose 84″ 4K 3D Bravia TV is a wonder to behold. However, the company realizes that, at $25k, it’s still well out of reach for the majority of interested consumers. In response, they’ve announced 55 and 65-inch models that will feature the same stunning picture at prices that Sony describes as “attainable.”

We had a look at the new 4K Bravias, and came away very impressed. The picture quality is just as amazing as the flagship 84″ Bravia TV, at a size (and hopefully price) that will be more appealing to the average consumer. One of the biggest surprises, though, was the excellent sound quality coming from the integrated speakers. Flat Panel TVs are notorious for producing sub-par sound because of the size and power restraints of the speaker drivers in such a thin enclosure. Sony developed a speaker tech that utilizes magnetic fluid to suspend voice coils, decreasing energy consumption and distortion and creating a speaker with unrivaled clarity for its size.

According to Sony, the two smaller sets will be available for purchase in late Spring, though exact pricing has not yet been announced. We’re definitely looking forward to getting them into our showroom, so you can get them into your family room. Stay tuned to our Blog for more info from CES 2013, and check out the video from Sony explaining the new 4K Tvs after the break. (more…)
