Hisense Pulse Pro Android TV Review [video] by SomeCoolTech

"This was my favorite thing (that I could afford) at CES 2014. Its an Android TV box that preforms very well. Its UI is lightning fast and the remote is the most usable remote I've found so far. I will be buying one as soon as it comes out. When it becomes available I'll put a link to it here in the description below.

This has the same version of Android TV that comes in Hisense's high end 4K TV with Android TV but you can get it in an inexpensive box."

Gavin Umstead's curator insight, March 28, 5:21 AM
So my boyfriend has a Roku TV and had expressed to me that he thought the Smart TV and it's technology were much better suited for our existing binging habits than existing television sets by pushing emphasis into streaming providers. The article explains the Roku TV's foremost manufacturer TCL has decided to expand both in advertising their relatively new technology with a lineup of 4K sets, and increasing knowledge of the brand itself. The brand has had the biggest gains in industry sales and intends to follow this trend by tacking on it's name to the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. They also have reached new demographics by partnering with Ellen and giving away their TVs to her audiences. I found their push into the new market of ultra-HD interesting as they're planning on an unveiling of a 65-in curved screen, which apparently has some benefits to the viewing experience. In all the article seems, formal, if not robotic, yet has given me the desire to get my own.
