JVC's OLED TV with 4K 120Hz looks great… if you can get it

Deep blacks and super smooth motion look set to be on tap with JVC’s just-announced new line of 4K OLED TVs.

Coming in 55-inch and 65-inch options, the new 9200 series TV’s are set to offer refresh rates up to 120Hz and feature HDMI 2.1 connectivity to rival the best 120Hz TVs available today.

Alongside an Auto Low Latency mode (ALLM) which automatically switches to the TVs’ lowest latency setting (a key feature of the best gaming TVs), there’s also support for Dolby Vision with the TVs running the latest version of Google’s Android TV operating system.

A new SuperResolution feature, meanwhile claims to refine and upscale sub-4K images, using JVC’s Micro Dimming algorithm to further enhance dynamic contrast ratio. 

Alongside those promising picture features, the 9200 also looks like having a solid audio support, with built-in support for Dolby Atmos and DTS Virtual, while the HDMI ports will feature eARC, which will please anyone looking to rig the TV up to the best soundbars.

There’s plenty to admire about the design as well, with the TVs boasting a frameless bezel look alongside a fancy swivel-base stand for fine tuning viewing angles. 

While no price tag is currently available for these new models, with those specs and JVC traditionally being a competitively priced brand, we’re expecting these new OLED TVs to be hovering around bargain territory considering the features.

Now for the bad news – the 9200 range’s availability looks set to be restricted to a select few European countries. The TVs are manufactured by Turkish display giant Vestel which licenses the JVC brand, but that license doesn’t appear to extend to even the totality of Europe, with the UK, France and Nordic countries being excluded. 

So that's frustrating for those of us in the US, UK, Australia and beyond… but still, its happy days for the likes of Germany, Spain and the Netherlands, with the 9200 range set to go on sale in those countries next month.

Analysis: New OLED’s look a smooth deal for European movie fans

JVC was synonymous with offering great tech at great prices back in the day, so it’s nice to see the resurrected brand being linked to what appears to be a well-specified line of new OLEDs.

We’ve still plenty of questions to ask, in terms of what generation of LG Display panels are being used, if the 9200 range can do 4K 120Hz over HDMI, and of course, their price. 

But with the initial information we have and what we know of JVC’s usual price points, these new TVs could be hard to beat – it’s just a pity that not many of us look likely to get a chance to grab one. Perhaps that'll change, but with the way the TV business works, it looks unlikely.

How to get the Microsoft experience on a Chromebook

Microsoft's dedication to Android translates to a great Chrome OS experience, too. Once upon a time, to get the best experience for Microsoft services, you needed to buy a Windows laptop . If you were on a budget laptop with lower specs, though, performance was slow, all tasks were tedious, and your productivity suffered. These days, though, the best Chromebooks offer excellent performance and less maintenance at lower price points.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones . By the way, the Playstation 4 controller as well as the Xbox One controller are also compatible with Android devices, if you'd prefer to use one of those. Note: You will only be able to use a Pro Controller if your phone is running Android 10 and if the game you're playing supports controllers. Additionally, the process for syncing the controller with your phone will be different from one phone to the next.

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
