Samsung's 2019 QLED and UHD range has finally landed in Australia.

“We believe in offering Australians choice by providing a range of solutions so they can pick the one best suited to their lifestyle,” said Jeremy Senior, Head of Consumer Electronics at Samsung Australia.

“Whether that’s choosing between 8K and 4K, selecting their favourite voice assistant, or exploring what content to settle into after a long day.”

Fronted by the company's first 8K QLED TV, the Q900, Samsung's 2019 AV lineup ranges from the affordable RU8000 and RU7100 to the more premium Q80 and Q90.

8K aside, the sell here isn't too different from previous years. Samsung are still opting for QLED over OLED, and they're still relying on other non-picture quality related benefits to make up the difference.

Like last year's crop, this year's Samsung QLED range runs on their Tizen smart TV interface (which now features Google and Amazon Alexa integration) and boast familiar perks like the One Connect Remote, One Connect Box, One Clear Cable and Ambient Mode. 

The other X-factor here is Samsung's new AI-powered Quantum processor. Courtesy of the new CPU, Samsung say their TVs now ship with a series of features that help optimise the TV viewing experience in real time. To that end, there's a new Intelligent Mode that adjusts the screen brightness, sound and volume levels of the TV to best suit both the kind of the content being played as well the ambient lighting in the room.

There's also a set of anti-glare and wide viewing Angle enhancement tech in the mix, which is featured on the Q80 and above, and a dedicated game mode that supports variable refresh rate via AMD's FreeSync.

As previously mentioned, Samsung's 2019 RU8000 and above TVs will work with Bixby, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Apple Airplay 2 (when it arrives in the second half of 2019 alongside the Apple TV+ app).

There have also been improvements made to Bixby, allowing users to easily access the content they want from YouTube and Netflix via voice.

A full breakdown of the sizing and pricing for Samsung's 2019 TV lineup can be seen below:

Samsung’s 2019 TV range will be available through a variety of retail outlets nationally from April 1.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
