Solo™ by 3DR at Best Buy


The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. My Dad had a remote control helicopter when I was younger. It was a lot of fun to watch him fly it! I never tried myself, I most likely would have crashed it. These days technology has advanced in leaps and bounds and I know he would love to try the new Solo™ by 3DR. This thing is seriously cool! It's your own personal drone, capable of capturing live HD video and amazing photos with GoPro cameras. The Solo hit Best Buy stores on June 8 and retail for $999. That might seem a bit pricey, but can you imagine the breath taking imagery you could capture? This is the first ever drone to be powered by integrated Linux computers, one in the drone itself and the other in the controller. They are connected with a dedicated Wi-Fi signal. Speaking of controllers, this isn't the bulky, clunky old RC style. They have been redesigned with gamers and … [Read more...]

The LG G4 Debuts at Best Buy


The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. My husband has an iPhone, but I've always preferred Androids. I'm especially a fan of LG phones. I currently have an LG Volt and while it isn't the newest model and has a crack down the screen, it has always done everything I've need it to do. It's dependable and fast. I'm sure I would squeal like a kid in a candy shop to have the new LG G4, but until my old phone finally quits on me, an upgrade isn't in the cards. The LG G4 has all the features I've come to know and love with my Volt, but they are improved upon and enhanced. The changes have been made focusing on three specifics: the camera, the display, and the design. Obviously we want our smartphones to take phenomenal photos - even on the fly - and the display needs to be amazing whether we're reading emails, playing a game, or streaming Netflix. The design is also important, the phone … [Read more...]

You've probably heard the term SUHD floating around lately or 4K television, but do you know what it is? It's the latest advancement in television design and it's pretty awesome. The Samsung 4K SUHD TV is powered by a revolutionary panel featuring Nano-crystal technology. Sounds fancy, right? It is. Everything you see is brighter, crisper, and more detailed.

With 4 times the resolution of full HD, the SUHD presents more lifelike pictures with a wider range of colors. Those colors are deepened and more contrasted with improved black levels, and further enhanced with the Peak Illuminator Pro. With 8.3 million pixels, this type of viewable content is unrivaled.
