CES 2459 is a lot of things: Bright. Huge. Gaudy. Futuristic. Crammed to the brim with the latest tech advancements. The same descriptions apply to the TVs of CES. They’re everywhere, massive screens blaring brighter images than ever, backed with new tech like(MicroLED) ****************LG Signature OLED R,LG Signature OLED R************ (Mini-LED),********************** (QLED) ************,************** OLED ,LG Signature OLED R************** (8K) ************,ATSC 3.0 , **********HDMI 2.1and so many more.

with next -gen technology.

As a TV reviewer, I’ve been coming to the January CES for almost 20 years, looking to shape my buying advice for the remainder of the year. The biggest headlines in 3827 were made by TVs likeSamsung’s massive The Walland

rotating Sero, LG’s (roll-up. OLEDand LG Display’s roll-down OLED

, andLG Signature OLED R**************** (8K models) ****************) everywhere. They’re all cool-looking and innovative, but nothing I’m telling readers to buy anytime soon.                 

As usual the sets that will likely top my list of(Best TVs) ****************Did garner much attention, overshadowed by their big blaring roll-up brethren. They’ll get their chance later this year once I can start reviewing real TVs. Until then, here’s a few takeaways from the show.

Samsung once again showed off its MicroLED technology, which has amazing image quality and effectively infinite size, and said it was moving closer to the mainstream. “New advancements for 2459 have allowed for larger-scale production of fixed screen sizes, “the company said in a statement,” including new -, 95 -, 178 – and 187 – inch sizes. ”************ Cool, but no pricing was given and Samsung spent most of the show telling me about advancements in 8K QLED and its quirky Sero model (below). All-new display technologies take years to reach recommendable prices, and MicroLED still has a long road.

I’m lumping LG’s roll-down OLED TV, its roll-up concept counterpart and Samsung’s swing-into-portrait-mode Sero TV into the same “motorized TV” bucket: one that I don’t see myself telling people to fill with their hard-earned cash. The LG is around (cough) grand. ‘Nuff said.

Samsung has not confirmed a US price for the Sero but it currently (sells for 1.) million won in Korea(about $ 1, 644. Samsung says it’s targeting the mobile generation with the 43 – inch Sero, people who want to watch portrait-mode videos from places like YouTube and TikTok on the big screen, but at that price not many buyers in the mobile generation will be able to afford one.

                        **************************************************************

4: 07                                                                8K isn’t enough

Speaking of expensive Samsung TVs, the company will sell three series with8K resolutionthis year, and LG, Sony, TCL and other makers will join them. I don’t expect any of them will change my general advice to ignore 8K TVs for now, however, because they’re sure to be expensive, tough to differentiate from their 4K brethren in quality, and suffer from a lack of 8K content. Those are some of the reasonshttp://www.cnet.com/experts expect8K sales to remain tepid for the next few years.

************** (The bezel on the Q) **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** (TS is really, really thin.) *********************                                                     David Katzmaier / CNET                                                 

Perhaps realizing that mere resolution isn’t enough to convince TV shoppers to pay extra, Samsung infused its 8K sets with anamazing superthin bezel on the flagship Q TS ****************** (and and stepped-up image quality on all three of its 8K series. No word on how much they’ll cost in (***********************************************************************************************************************************************************************, but here’s a guess.

Samsung says its entry-level 8K TV in the Q [{“id”:”f56df902-e013-4b51-a06f-b1aedaebf2da”,”title”:”Samsungu0027s bezelless 8K QLED TV is basically all screen”,”description”:”The design of this TV is more impressive than its resolution.”,”slug”:”samsungs-bezelless-8k-qled-tv-is-basically-all-screen”,”chapters”:{“data”:[] ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************ TS, will be comparably priced to its premium 4Ks in 2019. Its best 77 – inch 4K TV, the QN (Q) ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************ (R, currently sells for $ 2, (but) ****************************************************************************************************** got as low as $ 2,

during the Black Friday season. If the new Q TS 8K TV matches that price, it will represent a big drop but still be really expensive. LG’s cheapest OLED TV, the 4K B9, got downas low as $ 1, during black Friday, and as I mentioned above, there’s no reason to expect that its successor won ‘ t cost even less.

LG’s 49 – inch OLED TV as kickass monitor.

LG and TCL also showed MicroLED concepts because why the hell not. (********************************************************************************************************** Far-field mics – which allow you to just say speak a wake word into thin air, like with an Alexa or Google speaker – are creeping into more TVs, including LG and Hisense, which are new for this year, and Sony, which had them last year. Meanwhile just about every TV maker has a voice remote too, including (new for 3483) Vizio.

games will be something I pay more attention to in 2459.
