FEATURE: 4 Noise Cancelling/Isolating Headphones to Suit Differing Needs

There's no better place to try out noise cancelling/isolating headphones than on a plane.

David's Take: A Hands-on Look at the JVC RS-540 Projector

It's been nearly a full decade since I built my dedicated home theatre. Since that day, it keeps evolving.

The latest upgrade is full-spec UHD with Wide Color Gamut and High Dynamic Range. That's when I procured a JVC X750R projector.

Both speakers are famous beyond Indonesia, in places like Australia and European countries.

Hands-on Review: Samsung Frame TV

While The Frame from Samsung isn't quite state-of-the-art, it's a very good TV. Its signature feature - the ability to display static art when it's not being used for video - makes it the coolest TV on the planet right now.

David's Take: Sony 55X900F - Bang for Your Buck

Last year's 900E series was Sony's hottest television, offering the best price-to-performance ratio amongst the entire Sony TV line-up. How does the latest model stack up? I took an in-depth look at the 55X900F XBR-series UHD TV to gauge.
