Our favorite Australian, Ty Pendlebury, joins us on this last 404 episode before the main event of technology begins–otherwise known as CES.
Ty gives his opinion on what will be the hottest tech from the show this year, and it looks like OLED will be big. Already some manufacturers like LG have announced massive 55-inch OLED screens, skipping a few sizes in between. While recent HDTV technology like 120Hz has been questionable when it comes to image quality, the near-perfect black levels of OLED screens just might have you interested in buying a new HDTV again. Ty warns that the prices aren’t anywhere close to what we’ve been accustomed to lately.
AVN also won’t be going on at the same time as CES this year, so that’s a disappointment. We also take a few voice mails, but we want to let you know that we love to hear your feedback when we get to Vegas. So please call us and leave us a message at (866) 404-CNET. In the meantime, we’re packing our bags and getting ready for a slew of hopefully unforgettable shows.
