A generic monitor not specifically designed for photography isn’t going to deliver the colour quality we seek. Processing images on the BenQ SW271 gives the user a stunningly vivid colour range.
Hisense Series 8 ULED 2017: Full, in-depth review
Hisense takes the fight to the home entertainment heavyweights
- Reasonably priced
- Built-in 4K Netflix
- Edge-lit with underwhelming blacks
- Disappointing video processing
While Hisense punches above its weight in the budget television category, this new top-shelf television struggles to hold its own.
Price$ 4,999.00 (AUD)
After making a splash as a challenger brand, Hisense is taking the fight to the home entertainment heavyweights with its flagship Series 8 and 9 ULED televisions.
For a long time Australia's high-end television market was dominated by a handful of premium brands which were head and shoulders above the rest in terms of picture quality. That changed with the arrival of budget television makers like Hisense, proving that shopping on a mid-range budget no longer means living with mediocre picture quality.
Last year's Hisense Series 7 ULED television met with rave reviews, with its $1999 55-inch model putting far more expensive rivals to shame. This year Hisense has its sights set on the top-shelf television category, with a price tag to match, but unfortunately it fails to live up to expectations.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
