LG will ship its first 8K UHD OLED and LCD TVs in 2019, and nearly all will get a boost in processing power. Two-fold in some instances.
The Shure SE535 deliver luxurious performance at a starting price of $449. Adding the optional RMCE-BT2 module delivers Bluetooth 5 and aptX HD support for 24-bit audio, but adds another $149 to your bill of sale.
The weatherized Soundcast VG5 pumps out the bass that's so often lacking in outdoor speakers. But it's truly for outdoor or large spaces, not the average indoor space.
HighPoint's RocketStor 6661A Thunderbolt 3 PCIe/NVMe enclosure is a relatively affordable way to add super-fast storage to your system or laptop. Assuming, of course, you have a T3 port.
Akitio's Node Lite Thunderbolt 3 PCIe enclosure houses all the RGB goodness of the Intel 905P NVMe SSD. It's fast and features an x16 PCIe slot and a DisplayPort output.
The Adata XPG SX8200 Pro NVMe SSD surprises with better-than-typical performance for its price point.
Sony's PSZ-RA4T is a rugged, attractive, and versatile RAID box with support for both Thunderbolt 2 and USB. It's equally at home in a mixed Mac/PC environment, the field, or the trunk of your car.
Sony's PSZ-HC1T 1TB USB 3.1 (Gen 1) 2.5-inch hard drive isn't a svelte wonder or particularly cheap, but it's perfectly sized and outfitted to stand up to the rigors of the workplace and frequent transport.
Sony's XBR65A9 65-inch 4K UHD OLED TV offers great color, excellent blacks, and wonderful HDR. It also offers the best sound in a flat-panel TV, bar none. The only problem is that there's a significantly cheaper, but highly worthy competitor in the LG's E8 series.
The compact, relatively inexpensive Akitio NT2 U31C lets you easily combine hard drives for a fast and capacious storage box. But no means are provided for mounting 2.5-inch devices, so it's best for 3.5-inch hard drives.
The Samsung 860 QVO QLC (quad-level cell/4-bit) SATA 6Gbps SSD sets a new low in terms of price per gigabyte, at least in its 2TB and 4TB flavors. It's also a very good performer until you run out of secondary cache.
Kudos to Marley for using recycled materials in the No Bounds XL waterproof Bluetooth speaker. But its sounds mediocre at low volumes, and only average when you crank it.
The Viofo A129 dual-channel, front and rear dash cam duo captures great video, day and night. Integrated GPS and excellent ease of use seal the deal.
Acronis True Image 2019 has all the features and speed you need. But its system footprint is bigger than most, and it might be a bit much for the average user.
