TCL’s 4K under $5K -- a bargain 65-inch Ultra HD TV

TCL E5691 65-inch Ultra HD TV available from mid-September

Ultra HD TVs are starting to become more and more prevalent at the top of Australia’s top electronics manufacturers’ product listings. They carry commensurate price tags, though, with the smallest and cheapest being Sony’s $5,999 55-inch X Series BRAVIA.

TCL’s 65-inch E5691 is only $4,999. The new Chinese-made TV has a resolution or 3840x2160 pixels, equalling the resolution of similar panels from Sony, Samsung and LG.

Since there is very little Ultra HD content available to consumers, and no delivery method like Blu-ray or DVD to easily store that content, the TCL E5691 can up-scale lower quality video to its native resolution. Up-scaling doesn’t increase the overall detail visible in video, but can make it more appropriate for viewing on a higher-resolution screen.

The TV also has built-in Wi-Fi, with direct access to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, SBS on Demand and SMH.tv, and a ‘Nscreen’ wireless screen sharing feature, supporting compatible Android smartphones and tablets. It’ll be available in mid-September.

TCL also used the opportunity to launch two new series of 1080p LED TVs — the E5510 and F3500 — with largely identical specifications to the E5691 apart from screen resolution and size.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
