Guest Post: Hisense Canada Has Some Tips for Gifting Electronics

Posted in Commentary with tags on December 1, 2020 by itnerd

Year in and out, home electronics are among the most popular gifts given during the holiday season.

That is especially true in the digital information age. From personal speakers to smart watches to video game systems to new televisions, chances are there is some form of electronics device on most wish lists.

It also helps that electronics are relatively easy to shop for…. If you know what you want to buy. To help ease the process — for both yourself and the intended recipient of the gift — Hisense Canada is offering some advice.

As they say, it is the thought that counts. So here are some things to think about when checking off your list:

  • Beat the Rush — Shop early, especially in this COVID-economy. Shopping early gives you a better chance of finding exactly what you want, will increase the odds that the inventory exists and will make it more likely that it is in your possession before your gift-giving deadline.
  • Gift the Receipt — Do more than just hold on to the receipt; it’s a wise idea to include it as part of the gift. With most electronics, the recipient will need it to register and validate their warranty. And you absolutely want them to register and validate the warranty.
  • Research the Retailer — Doubling down on the bit about the warranty, you want to make sure there actually is one for them to register and validate. Even if you are on the website of a trusted retailer, some of them offer a “Marketplace” where third-party vendors can peddle their wares. And quite often, a deal seen here that is too good to be true, is exactly that. They may be selling a model that is discontinued, refurbished or from another country. And in each of these cases, the manufacturer’s warranty is no longer valid. When you find the item you want to buy, note the product number and cross reference that on the manufacturer’s website.
  • Get the Right Fit — OK, so it’s not like buying a T-Shirt and knowing what will physically fit. But you want a device to fit into the recipient’s lifestyle. For example, if you are looking to get someone a TV to fit into their smart home system, it would be helpful to know what kind of system they are operating. For example, a television equipped with AndroidTV streaming is best suited with Google Home; or you know their current TV stand will fit the footprint of the TV you’re looking at – unless you’re going to gift that, too!
  • Know Your Audience — Or, at least, the person you are giving it to. If they are a die-hard video gamer, make sure the TV has the speed to keep up with their action. If they aren’t overly tech savvy, keep it simple — will that smart watch help their lives, or frustrate them to no end? If they have a small apartment, or are a student in a communal living space, make sure the gift will physically fit in their living space.

Guest Post: Hisense Has Suggestions On How To Shop Safely on Black Friday

Posted in Commentary with tags on November 4, 2020 by itnerd

Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days in North America, but this year is going to look a bit different.

The world is still in the grip of a pandemic, meaning people are more likely to be glued to their computer screens than they will be stampeding through a big box store to get the hottest deal. There is also a good chance people will be starting before Black Friday arrives, both to ensure what they want is delivered in time and to increase the odds that it is in stock. 

But while staying home and shopping online will keep people safe from COVID-19, it does open shoppers to more risks if they don’t know the ins and outs of adding items to a digital cart instead of a push one. 

Among the hot items in any Black Friday sale is home electronics; to help people safely navigate the online shopping experience on the day after American Thanksgiving, Hisense Canada offers the following advice: 

  • Keep it Familiar — There is an uncountable number of websites out there in cyberspace wanting to sell you things. Many are legit. May more are not. A known retail brand is responsible with your personal information. A scammer would not be. Look for misspellings and be wary of domains that aren’t .com or .ca. 
  • Be Secure — Check the URL and ensure the address begins with “HTTPS” with an icon of a padlock, probably to the left of the URL. The “S” at the end and the lock indicate it is a secure site that will protect your data – like your credit card number. If it is just an “HTTP” site, keep on scrolling. And while we are on security, make sure your antivirus protection is up to date, and do you shopping from home on you own secure wifi network. Never use your credit card when on a public wifi provider.
  • Double Check the Seller — You may be on the website of an internationally renowned retail brand, but that doesn’t mean the item you are looking to buy is being sold by them. Several of the big retailers have a marketplace where third-party vendors can sell items among the inventory of the host store’s. Be wary and double check that you are buying something from the store you think are buying it from — most manufacturer websites will let you know where their products can be purchased. Most grey market material is not subject to warranty coverage. 
  • Ask Questions — Online marketplaces, such as Amazon, give shoppers the opportunity to engage one-on-one with brands, manufacturers and other consumers. Do your research ahead of time and make sure you take advantage of the “Ask a Question” feature to ensure you are armed with all the information you need to make the most informed purchase to meet your needs — before shopping day. 
  • Cross Reference with the Retailer — One of the challenges with these third-party vendors is that they often sell older models, US stock or something that is refurbished. And in each case, it is unlikely the manufacturer’s warranty is still valid. This is certainly a case where a deal that looks too good to be true likely is. To protect yourself against this, open the manufacturer’s website in a separate browser window and punch in the product number. This will tell you immediately if you are looking at a current Canadian model, and if it is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. 
  • Read Online Reviews — As you are buying online, you can’t actually see what the picture is like as you could in a bricks-and-mortar store, and there are no sales staff around to answer your questions. Pay close attention to what others say about picture quality and the spectrum of colours. Complaints about a lack of customer support can be an indication that the consumer purchased an older or refurbished model from a third party, rather than an actual customer service issue. 
  • Be Prepared — In the week leading up to Black Friday, have look through digital or paper flyers to get an idea of what you may want to buy, and do your research ahead of time. Then when the deals open, you will be ready to jump in before inventories are depleted.

Guest Post: Hisense Has Suggestions To Help Make The Most Of A Halloween Unlike Any Other

Posted in Commentary with tags on October 9, 2020 by itnerd

With no social bubbles permitted and physical distancing measures in place to fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are expecting to have a Halloween unlike any other.

Trick-or-Treaters not expected to be out and about scavenging for candy from their neighbours, and Halloween parties – whether for kids or adults — will be frowned upon (if not, technically, illegal in some parts of the country where people can be fined for hosting or attending large events). 

But that doesn’t mean Halloween has to be a write off. You can still enjoy it in a physically distanced manner — grab the candy bowl, settle into the couch and enjoy the theme of the season with a horror movie marathon. 

“Halloween is a great time to go back to the classics, and this year even more so with the clamp down on parties and Trick-or-Treating,” says Ashley Saunders, Social Media Specialist for Hisense Canada and a self-described horror movie enthusiast. “But if you are having a horror movie marathon, you have to do it right — dark room, big screen, the right colour contrast and a sound system you can feel in your chest, but is reduced to a whisper when the tension is building.” 

To get the best out of your TV when screening horror flicks, your checklist should include:

  • Ultimate Resolution — Don’t settle for less than 4K Quantum Dot technology. 
  • Broad Colours — Distinguish the dark from the really dark, and get the most vibrant reds — nothing takes you out of scary moment faster than fake-looking blood.
  • Contrast — Without the right contrast, you could end up watching a black screen, or get pixelated blotches in the dark areas that make it hard to see what is happening. Horror movies are mostly shot darker than other genres, so HDR technology is so important.
  • Killer Sound — Pun intended. Much of the tension and thrills in a horror flick comes from the soundtrack. Sound effects, music, screams – all are equally important for your marathon. 

Once you have the TV, it is time to assemble your viewing list. The easy choices are classics and pop culture favourites like The Exorcist, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street or Halloween. But Ashley suggests inserting some of these favourites into the rotation: 

  1. The Shining (1980) – Here’s Johnny! Ok, you’ve probably seen this one, but we love it anyway.
  2. Lifechanger (2019) – A murderous shapeshifter sets out on a blood-soaked mission to make things right with the woman he loves. Body horror meets awesome practical effects in this Canadian film. 
  3. Alien (1979) – Sci-Fi can be terrifying to anyone. Do we really know what’s out there? And also, Sigourney Weaver is badass (and so is Jonesy).
  4. You’re Next (2013) – A family dinner party gone horribly wrong. Want to see a protagonist finally fight back? This is a must-watch from Australia.
  5. The Lodgers (2017) – Irish “ghost” story that leaves you feeling uneasy from beginning to end. 
  6. Poltergeist (1982) – A malevolent ghost attacks a couples’ young daughter, sending her to a terrifying alternative dimension.
  7. Host (2020) – Very fitting as it was filmed during pandemic lockdown – friends decide to host a digital séance – what could go wrong? 
  8. Thir13en Ghosts (2001) – Fascinating variety of horrifying spirits that teaches you that what you can’t see can definitely still kill you.
  9. The Mortuary Collection (2019) – An eccentric mortician recounts several of the strangest stories he’s encountered in his long career, but things take a turn in this anthology.
  10. Peninsula – A sequel to the Train to Busan (2020). A Korean zombie flick about folks escaping the initial outbreak and after a time jump in a post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland. A group takes a mission in the middle of an overrun city – what could go wrong?

Guest Post: Hisense Has Some Must-Haves For Your Student’s School-Year Living Space

Posted in Commentary with tags on September 2, 2020 by itnerd

We may be in unprecedented times, and this fall and the return to school won’t be like any other, but there will still be students heading off to university or college — and for many of the first-year students they’re heading out on their own for the first time.

When sending your child out into the world, it’s a good idea to make sure they are properly equipped for the journey. Specifically, they have been used to living at home and sharing all of the amenities that make a house a home. When they are headed to their student living arrangements — whether on campus or off — it’s a good idea to ensure that a few must-have items are around to make their school year that much better.

The folks at Hisense Canada offer the following advice for must-haves in the dorm or student house:

  • Television — A good-size TV can be a difference maker. Tether it to a laptop to get bigger and better picture for virtual lectures. Today’s smart TVs will give your kid all of the streaming options they need to stay entertained between classes. A Hisense H4G (available at Walmart.ca and Costco instore and online) is equipped with Roku, is full HD and has all the inputs your child needs to hook up their gaming system or computer. And at 43 inches, it’s a good size screen for a dorm room.
  • Good Headphones — Whether it is sitting in on a virtual lecture or winding down and listening to their favourite songs, a good set of headphones are a must. Blue tooth headphones can connect to their smartphone, laptop and even their Hisense TV. It will also allow them to focus on what they are doing, and not annoy any roommates with their ambient noise.
  • Mini Fridge — Students in residence cannot live on cafeteria food alone. Even if sharing a house with a roommate who likes to cook, a personal fridge will give your child a place to keep their own food or drink and stash their leftovers. It’s convenient, will cut down on potential arguments with roommates who like to raid the main fridge and it can also serve as a tabletop surface for storing items.
  • Cleaning Supplies — It’s not all fun and games. Mom and dad won’t be around to clean up anymore, so it’s a good idea to equip your student with some basic cleaning supplies so that they can keep their space neat and tidy. Include a disinfecting cleaner, dust mop and pre-moistened cloths they can use to keep their high-touch surfaces clean.
  • Personal Touches — A dorm room can be pretty sterile. Send along some family pictures, some art from the home or even a potted house plant or two to give the student housing space a little more character and atmosphere from home.
  • Dehumidifier — Chances are , whether in a dorm or an apartment, students have little control over the climate in the room. They can maybe fiddle with the temperature, but they are at the mercy of the building’s HVAC system when it comes to the humidity. A dehumidifier will help regulate the moisture in the air — and can be invaluable in a small space bathroom.

Guest Post: Hisense Tells You How To Check That Gamer Off Your List

Posted in Commentary with tags on November 19, 2019 by itnerd

It’s the time of year to make that list and check it twice.

Of course checking it is the easy part. The real challenge is making the list in the first place. Even if you know what you want to get people, there is always the risk they won’t like it, it’s the wrong size or not the right kind of item. That is particularly true if you have a video gamer in your life, and you would like to get them the right set up so they can fully enjoy their hobby.

“While it is the thought that counts, you are best to do a bit of research to make sure you are getting the right item,” says Travis Thompson, a product training expert with Hisense Canada. “Not just any TV will do for today’s video game consoles. You need a high resolution, stark contrasts and a quick-moving screen to keep up with action without any lag time.”

When shopping for a TV for the gamer on your list, Travis recommends looking for the following:

  • Resolution — 4K is pretty much a given on any new TV nowadays, but all of the modern game consoles are now in 4K resolution. To get the most out of the gaming system, it is best to have a TV that matches what the console supports.
  • HDR — The short form of high-dynamic range, it means the TV has a massive range of colours, which appear brighter and in greater contrast. It is great for dark scenes in games.
  • Low Input Lag — Video games move fast, and if your refresh or motion rate is low the images on the screen will blur. Look for a refresh rate of 120Hz for crisp, clear action the screen at all times.
  • MEMC — A chip (Motion Estimation / Motion Compensation) that is used to interpolate extra images on your TV, which is a fancy way of saying it works with the refresh or motion rate to smooth out the picture.
  • Local Dimming — By automatically dimming the backlight on black parts of the image on the screen, local dimming gives deeper and darker blacks and better contrast and colour accuracy.

“Some TVs are ideally for watching movies, others for sports and some for video games,” says Travis. “The Hisense H8 family of 4K ULED TVs is perfectly suited for that escape into the alternate reality of video games.”

Guest Post: Hisense-Breaking SmartTV Myths for Black Friday

Posted in Commentary with tags on November 5, 2019 by itnerd

While technically an American phenomena, Black Friday — and the requisite shopping deals that come with it — has invariably filtered north.

It may not coincide with a Canadian holiday, but retailers in this country have jumped into the habit of slashing prices and offering deep discounts on the last Friday of November, giving Canadian shoppers the chance to start checking items off their Christmas list without breaking the bank and having to deal with the hassles of border crossings. But whether shopping in Canada or the United States, it is recommended consumers do a little research lest they get lured into a deal that is too good to be true, and turns out to be exactly like that.

“Home electronics are one of the more sought after products on Black Friday, but not all are created the same,” says Meaghan Wilkinson, Director of Marketing for Hisense Canada. “Most consumers are doing their research before they commit to buying a TV or other device, but even in that process you have to be cautious as not everything on the Internet is true.”

To help you out when looking at that next big screen TV on Black Friday — whether to wrap and give as a gift or for your own personal use — Meaghan wants to break the following myths:

  • MYTH: You shouldn’t connect your smart TV to the Internet.

FACTS: For optimal use of a Smart TV, connection to the Internet is critical.  Not only to access all your favourite movies, apps and TV shows , but you will miss bug fixes and software updates that are sent to your TV only when there is an active Internet connection. This isn’t unique to TVs. Your cellphone, video game system, computer, tablet and pretty much any other “connected” device will get updates from time to time. The idea that manufacturers are using these updates to sabotage their own products is pure hogwash.

  • MYTH: Any TV will do for any use.

FACTS: Everybody has different TV habits. Some are movie buffs, while others love their weekly sitcoms. Sports fans are tuning in to see their favourite teams and video gamers are potentially spending hours in front of their set. The reality in today’s TV marketplace is there is a TV with features that are best suited to each. Movie and sitcom fans would do well with a Smart TV that gives them quick and easy access to their favourite streaming services. Movie fans should look for nothing less than 4K ULED or Quantum Dot technology for resolution better than they would get in a theatre. A TV that will communicate with your home theatre system is also a plus for optimum sound. High resolution does the sports fan good as well. They should also look for a TV with higher hertz (Hz) — the higher the number, the less drag there is in the action. For video games, go for high hertz and low latency.

  • MYTH: Major manufacturers support all their products being sold on retailers websites.

FACTS: Most online retailers have marketplace “partners” that piggyback on the retailer’s online portal to sell from their own stock. Be wary when shopping here. You may be buying an older model, a foreign model or something that is refurbished. And in each of those cases, it is unlikely the manufacturer’s warranty is still valid. This is certainly a case where a deal that looks too good to be true just may be.

Hisense Announces Quantum Dot TVs

Posted in Commentary with tags on October 30, 2019 by itnerd

With colours as vibrant as you would see in nature, the darkest blacks and brightest whites, Quantum Dot technology is providing an unparalleled TV viewing experience.

Quantum Dots are semiconductor nanocrystals that produce pure red, green and blue lights, supporting a TV display that is brighter, with sharper contrasts and more than a billion colours. Whether watching a movie, sports or your favourite sitcom or playing video games, doing so on a Quantum Dot TV will take you to new levels.

A Quantum Dot display is as much as 100 times brighter than a classic cathode ray tube or even liquid crystals. Quantum Dot LEDs have reached in excess of 9,000 candelas per square metre; by way of comparison, an LCD computer monitor is about 500 candelas per square metre.

The result is a bright, crisp picture that can keep up with the action on the screen.

Hisense currently offers Quantum Dot technology in two of its TV families

  • Q8 Series — The Q8 — available in 55-inch and 65-inch screens — is a 4K ULED set equipped with Android TV. Local dimming makes it easy to watch from almost any angle, and the colour, contrast and brightness is supported by Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range. It also has Motion Rate technology to minimize lag during fast-moving sequences — perfect for taking in a high-speed chase or action on the ice. The result is a brilliant picture with oceans that sparkle bluer, fiery reds burning hotter and grass that is always greener. The Android TV has Google Assistant built in, allowing seamless networking with your Google Home and voice-activated commands, It also means access to more than 500,000 movies and TV shows through streaming services like Netflix, Google Play, YouTube and Amazon Prime. The Q8 is now available at Costco.ca, Best Buy.ca, Amazon.ca and other retailers across Canada.
  • Q9 Series — The superior picture quality and speed of the Q9 makes it an ideal TV for gamers. Similar to the Q8, it boasts more than a billion colours to maximize colour accuracy. It has 132 local dimming zones , Motion Rate technology and 1,000 nits peak brightness, so the picture looks great in a light or dark room. Connect to Google Home or Alexa and stream content in excess of a half-million shows and movies — using voice-activated controls. The Q9 is available at Visions Electronics and in Quebec at Brault & Martineau.

Motion Rate technology minimizes blurring during fast-moving sequences and it has up to 700 nits peak brightness, ensuring it looks great even in a bright room. It is powered by Android TV with Google Assistant, meaning you can connect it to your smart home through Alexa or Google Home and stream more than a half-million movies and TV shows.
  • Q Series — The Q series — available in 55-inch and 65-inch screens — are 4K ULED Quantum Dot sets equipped with Android TV. Local dimming makes it easy to watch from almost any angle, and the colour, contrast and brightness is supported by Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range.
