Black Friday sales drop Sony’s new 65-inch 4K Smart TV to its lowest price

November 18th, 2018

Need some pretty 4K in your living room?

Update: Looking for some more options in the 4K Smart TV category? Sony's 55-inch 4K X800E model from last year is down to $798 on Amazon. That's $100 off. You could also get the Sony X750F 65-inch 4K screen for $1,098, which is also $100 off its regular street price. Don't go into December without a 4K TV this year!

The Sony XBR65X850F 65-inch 4K Smart TV is down to $998 on Amazon from a street price around $1,398, which is what the TV has been selling at for the last six months or so. The $998 price is the lowest we have seen for it.

You could also upgrade to the 75-inch version of Sony's X850F series for $1,798. That's another huge chunk off the price because this TV was selling for around $2,300 before this drop.

The Sony X850 series has always been the sort of top end TV that still ends up in an affordable price range. Last year's 850E series went on sale during Black Friday and sold well. This year's X850F has not quite lived up to the hype because the IPS panel and edge lighting led to poor black levels and poor HDR support as a result. If HDR isn't a concern for you, though, the picture works wonderfully for TV shows, video games, and more. Plus, the Android TV smart platform gives you access to 4K HDR content from all your favorite streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and others. It's designed to work with the Google Play Store, Chromecast, and Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.

Sony's 65-inch TV has a lot of excellent features including 4K X-Reality Pro and an X1 processor to improve non-HDR content. The beautiful display has 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping and a 120Hz native refresh rate with Motionflow XR tech. The ports include four HDMI ports, two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0, and one composite.

The deal prices on Sony's 2018 4K TVs are just a couple of the dozens currently available as part of Amazon's "Seven Days of Black Friday" promo. Check out all the rest of the deals and don't miss out!

These are the best cases for the Razer Phone 2

November 18th, 2018

Gamers rejoice! Razer has followed up its intriguing-yet-flawed first attempt at a mobile phone with the refined Razer Phone 2. It features better features including water resistance, wireless charging, and that stylin’ RGB Chroma logo on the back and is still an absolute beast for gaming. You’re going to want to keep it protected with a case, and you’ll for sure want to get something like the TopAce Clear Case or perhaps something from Razer itself, like the Razer Phone 2 Light Case.

Tough and thin

Razer Phone 2 Carbon Fiber Case

First up from Razer itself is this rugged case made of durable carbon fiber material and features a nice window to accommodate the Chroma logo on the back. It’s the priciest case on our list, but it sure looks nice paired with the Razer Phone 2!

Are Microsoft’s Surface Headphones worth the price?

November 18th, 2018

Best answer: Surface Headphones are pricey, but worth it since you’re getting more than just a pair of headphones. Plus, they compare well against the other popular choices.

Microsoft: Surface Headphones ($350)

Headphones with added smarts and features.

The thing with the Surface Headphones is that you’re not just buying another pair of headphones. You’re buying smart headphones with Microsoft’s assistant Cortana built right in, along with some other nifty features like touch controls on the sides and even a feature that can amplify external noise, as well as blocking it out entirely.

You’re also promised 15 hours battery life with noise cancellation and Cortana turned on, which is enough for a full day’s use or pretty much any long haul flight you might find yourself on.

As you can imagine, these features inevitably drive the price up when compared to a regular set of headphones.

A good first impression

The Surface Headphones have left a positive first impression, which y…
