With the rainy sea­son upon us, we know that most of you would pre­fer stay­ing at home. For­tu­nately, there are lots of de­vices out there that could make your “stay­ca­tion” beyond or­di­nary. Let us start with tele­vi­sions. There was a time that 4K UHD TVS were too ex­pen­sive. How­ever, as these TVS are be­com­ing the new de facto stan­dard, more af­ford­able mod­els are also be­com­ing avail­able in the mar­ket. In a TV launch that we at­tended last June, we no­ticed that the price of the host’s flag­ship Full HD TV is not far from that of their en­try-level 4K UHD TV. Aus­pi­ciously, the price per inch of a 4K UHD TV panel has gone down be­low the PHP 1,000 mark. That said, we de­cided to fea­ture one of the least ex­pen­sive 4K UHD TV mod­els from LG in this is­sue to en­tice more con­sumers to switch from Full HD to 4K UHD. How­ever, if you are not yet ready to in­vest in a 4K UHD TV, you may sim­ply trans­form your HDTV into a smart TV by just hook­ing it up to an Ap­ple TV, Google Chrome­cast, or an An­droid TV box such as the Egreat A5. How­ever, if you are the am­bi­tious kind, you should also take a look at the Acer V9800, a 4K UHD DLP pro­jec­tor which we be­lieve is wor­thy of a spot in your pri­vate home the­ater, just in case you are plan­ning to build one. Of course, as the vis­ual ex­pe­ri­ence would never be com­plete with­out au­dio, we also pre­pared in this is­sue a shootout of dif­fer­ent soundbars, rang­ing from one of the most pre­mium to the most bud­get-friendly in the mar­ket, from brands Fo­cal, JBL, Sam­sung, and Sem­brandt. Stay­ca­tions could also be en­joyed through gam­ing. Hence, whether you are look­ing for a pow­er­ful lap­top or plan­ning to build an In­tel X299based rig as your new gam­ing plat­form, we have back-to-back shootouts to back you up. We have 50 more fea­tured prod­ucts in this is­sue, so we’re pretty sure that we’ve got you cov­ered.
