HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a set of hardware and software standards designed to support the transmission of audio and video. Unlike older standards, which required separate cables for audio and video, HDMI can handle both though a single connection.

It's now the de fact standard for connecting external devices to TVs, linking external displays to computers (although that often requires an adaptor) and even adding smart TV functions to regular TVs through devices like the Google Chromecast, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV Stick. Let's take a walk down HDMI Lane to see what makes it tick and how to make informed buying decisions.


The OLED TVs on display in JB Hi-Fi and other electronic stores are usually turned to maximum brightness. While this is great for grabbing your attention, it's not an accurate representation of picture quality in the real world.

So what can you do about it? Here are some tricks of the trade for picking an OLED TV that will actually look great in your lounge room.

It's not your fault, but it is very likely that you're using the wrong HDMI cord to plug that 4K Apple TV or PS4 Pro into your new TV. While you might have assumed that all HDMI cords are equal they are, unfortunately, not.


Last year, Samsung introduced an innovative new product to the TV buying public dubbed 'The Frame'. These Yves Behar-designed models attempt to make TV panels feel less like technology and more like art. Boasting a minimalist construction and ultra-thin bezels, each unit resembles a jumbo picture frame.

Originally only available in 55-inch and 65-inch iterations, you can now snap up a 43-inch model which is better suited for the bedroom (and kinder to your wallet). Here are the details.


Sony have gone live with their 12 Days of Christmas promotion, offering massive discounts on TVs, cameras, headphones and more. It's the last day of the promotion and a lot of the previous items are back on sale. Check out the deals here.


The new high dynamic range 165-centimetre OLED televisions from Panasonic and Sony will stop you in your tracks. They're stunning. Pin-sharp definition, beautiful colour balance (to my eye the Sony has a fractional edge) and detail just a tad short of real life.

But it's the contrast that blows everything else away. With no backlighting, OLEDs – organic, light-emitting diodes – make blacks utterly black and present excellent detail in dark scenes. OLEDs are also super thin, adding almost nothing to the thickness of the surface they're applied to.


With exquisite picture quality and a striking design, Sony has put forward a worthy contender for the OLED television crown. OLED televisions offer the best home entertainment picture that money can buy, thanks to the fact that – unlike LED-backlit LCD screens – OLED doesn't rely on a backlight. This lets OLED produce perfect blacks and amazing contrast, underpinning phenomenal overall picture quality.


They say size matters - and when it comes to TVs, that adage definitely holds true. If 65 inches just isn't cutting it anymore, Kogan has an offer that's well worth checking out.

For a limited time, you can get its gargantuan 75-inch 4K LED TV for just $1999. That's like, 25 bucks an inch! Here are the details.


If you're in the market for a new TV, now is the time to buy. For one month only, eBay is slashing the price of TVs from multiple retailers and manufacturers by as much as 70 per cent. This includes 4K Ultra HD models from the likes of Sony, LG, Samsung and Panasonic. Here are the best deals so far - with prices to suit every budget.


It's that time of year when all the major television makers show off their latest technologies in the war for Aussie lounge rooms. In one corner, Samsung continues to back the LED-backlit LCD camp (let's just call it LED). In the other corner, LG's Ultra HD OLED. Adam Turner recently tried out the 2017 flagship models from both manufacturers. Here is his verdict.
