Don't-Miss Home Theater Stories

Mohu ReLeaf

Mohu ReLeaf review: As easy on the environment as it is on your wallet

Made from recycled materials (post-consumer paper waste and recycled cable boxes), this antenna performs great and is priced right.

RCA ANT1750f

RCA ANT1750F indoor amplified antenna review: Big price tag, less-than-stellar performance

Despite its omni-directional nature, this antenna couldn’t pull in as many stations as it competitors.

Winegard FlatWave

Winegard FlatWave Amped indoor digital TV antenna review: Three model numbers, same antenna

This is a good antenna, just be careful not to pay too much.

Sharp Aquos N7000 review: A 55-inch 4K UHD TV with good audio and HDR-10 (well, sort of)

Though it still uses WLED backlighting, there's a lot to like about this TV. Unlike many other cheaper models, it offers the ability to render HDR-10 content, if not to full effect.

rokustreamingstick

Roku Streaming Stick review: The best cheap way to make a dumb TV smart

The Roku Streaming Stick offers a solid app selection, good-enough performance, and some neat tricks for $50.

Vizio P65-C1 display review: Dolby Vision HDR and an Android remote control

The Vizio P-series displays are the first we've seen to offer Dolby Vision HDR. The picture is great, but there's no TV tuner.

JBL Boost TV

JBL Boost TV review: There are great small speakers. This isn't one of them

We like the idea of a sound bar for smaller rooms and smaller TVs, but the Boost TV’s performance leaves much to be desired.

TCL Roku TV review (model 50UP130): A good picture, and a fantastic user interface

While picture quality is merely good by rapidly improving LCD TV standards, TCL's P-series Roku TVs are a breeze to set up and use.

raumfeld soundbar

Raumfeld WiFi Soundbar review: This speaker and subwoofer duo delivers a powerful 1-2 punch

The combo delivers very solid performances with both movies and music, and it can be incorporated into a multi-room audio system.

pronto peel irhub2

Pronto Peel universal remote control review: Cheap and relatively powerful, but you get what you pay for

As long as your hardware has an IR receiver, and doesn’t rely on Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or some other technology, the Pronto can probably control it.

powerdvd 165

Cyberlink PowerDVD 16 review: Enough new features to justify upgrading (from PowerDVD 14, at least)

The biggest new feature is support for streaming to set-top boxes such as AppleTV, Roku, and Chromecast.

Ray Super Remote

Ray Super Remote review: Almost super, definitely pricey

This universal remote wants to be your living-room’s everything, but it doesn’t quite swing it.

Monster Power Black Platinum

Monster Power Black Platinum 800 review: Surge protection with a side of networking

Monster’s line of surge protectors include everything you need to connect a network device using your home’s electrical wiring.

Vizio M65-C1 4K Ultra HD TV review: Great basics, a good picture, and some minor peccadilloes

When it comes to the basics, and we mean the basic functionality that will cover most users, this 4K Ultra HD TV has great chops. The only area it's lacking in is direct playback from USB media and support for peripherals such as mice and keyboards.

Yamaha YSP-1600 stock

Yamaha YSP-1600 MusicCast sound bar review: Much better with soundtracks than music

This will be a big step up from just about any TV’s speakers, but it can be too bright for music.
