You may know Western Digital primarily as a hard drive manufacturer but they have also had a fair amount of success with media streaming HDTV gadgets in the past but it’s a highly competitive category with companies like Google, Apple, and Roku fighting tooth and nail for supremacy. I’ve spent some time taking the WD Live TV media player for a spin and am pleased to see how well it stacks up against that competition. It doesn’t just hold its own, it offers some great features and performance at a very wallet friendly price. It certainly offers a lot of bang for your buck.


Review: Sharp 70” 1080p 240Hz 3D LED Smart TV

Growing up in a house predominantly inhabited by siblings and parents from Generation-Y, the love and appreciation for the television was instilled in me at a young age: starting with the early 80’s 11” General Electric tube television that was built-in to the red velvet wall of my father’s bar in my parents’ basement, right up to the 70” Sharp LED Smart TV that I had a chance to test and will review here. TVs are no longer the basic picture viewer that I grew up with—not even close; they’ve evolved into so much more. Whether we are talking about the functionality of the TV itself, the retail price point, or of course, the engineered design, TVs are maturing faster than the average household can keep up with, making it tough to discern between the good and the bad. So let’s take a look at one of the more popular brands in the smart TV game, Sharp, and discuss why its 70” 1080p 3D LED Smart TV option is worth considering as the next big investment for your living room.
