hcchighreccomendSony's latest mid-range TV isn't a member of the Mini LED glitterati. Will that put off John Archer?

Many TV brands have adopted Mini LED technology this year, but Sony is having none of it. Its 4K LCD models for 2021, including the upper mid-range 65X90J under examination here, persist with the 'standard' LED lighting that LCD displays have been using for years. Happily, though, this certainly does not prevent the 65X90J from being seriously desirable.

hccbestbuybadgev3Be you an avid gamer or film fan, this 48in OLED TV has what it takes to impress, says Steve May

Back when HCC was fresh of face, Star Wars was a trilogy and the Marvel Cinematic Universe had peaked at Howard the Duck, the very thought of a 48in TV would have blown my mind. A 36in set was typically as large as you could get back then, and even that would have required a van full of mates just to get it out of the box. An ultra-thin 48-incher would have been the screen of dreams, home cinema nirvana.

hcchighreccomendThanks to its monster 15in driver, Velodyne Acoustics' new sealed subwoofer gives Mark Craven a taste of the low life

Long-term AV fans will remember Velodyne. Once the go-to for superior, face-melting subwoofers, the American company picked up awards left, right and centre for its range of bassmakers, particularly the flagship DD+ series, which peaked with a terrifying 18in model.

hcc_recommendedLG's new 8K LCD TV turns to Mini LED lighting and the result is typically – but not quite always – breathtaking, says John Archer

Mini LED is perhaps the TV technology story of the year. The implementation of LEDs far smaller than those of conventional backlights has helped put TCL on the TV map and taken Samsung's 2021 Neo QLED TVs to new heights. And now it's back to (hopefully) revolutionise LG's LCD fortunes with the 75QNED99, a 75in 8K model with a price tag far more tempting than the company's 8K OLEDs.
