LG just unveiled its latest flagship 4K CineBeam projector that takes its ultra short throw (UST) lineup to the next level. The LG CineBeam HU915QE packs impressive specs like 3,700 lumens, and you can put it as close as 2.2-inches from the wall and still get a 90-inch screen.
People who want to stick a TV on their porch have two options. Either shell out $2,000+ for a weather-resistant set, or stick an outdoor cover over a regular TV and cross your fingers.

Your aging videotapes are beyond obsolete at this point. Manufacturers haven’t even made VCRs since 2016. You can still buy tape players online, but they’re getting harder to find and more expensive as supplies dwindle. So, now is the time to convert the content on your tapes to a digital format.

It seems that Star Trek is finally returning to its roots with Strange New Worlds, a show that focuses on Captain Christopher Pike—you know, the guy from the beeping chair. While Strange New Worlds is only available on Paramount+, you can now stream the first episode for free on YouTube.
I reviewed a $2,800 ultra-short throw (UST) laser projector two years ago and proclaimed it so good I’d buy one. Of course, I had to send that review unit back, which left me with the hard decision: do I spend the money? I did. And after two years, I can comfortably say it was worth it.
Home theaters are ballooning in popularity, and projector owners are now obsessed with ALR or “ambient light rejection” screens.
