Preview: Samsung Electronics Brings The Freestyle to Singapore

Tuesday, January 11th, 2022

Following the announcement of The Freestyle at CES 2022 less than a week ago, Samsung Electronics shipped a unit of The Freestyle to Singapore for a sneak preview for Singapore media.

The Freestyle is a 100-inch smart TV in disguise and includes a projector, speaker and ambient light rolled into one.

The Freestyle is a 100-inch smart TV in disguise and includes a projector, speaker and ambient light rolled into one.

Samsung describes The Freestyle a portable projector, smart speaker and lighting device all rolled into one.

To me, it’s essentially a 100-inch smart-TV rolled into a lightweight (830g) and portable “canister” that you can carry around to a BBQ or a hotel staycation.

Driven by Samsung’s Tizen OS and controlled by a remote control, it doesn’t have an in-built battery so you’ll either need access to a wall outlet, or a USB-PD battery bank that can put out 20V and 50W.

So without having to lug a 100-inch TV around, you can just fish out The Freestyle, plug it (USB-C port) into a power source – in front of a flat surface (which can be a wall or the ceiling) – and you’re in business … you have effectively a 100-inch smart TV in front of you to stream content from the Web.

There is an in-built 360-degree speaker included.

tech4xmas Review: PRISM+ Q65 Quantum Edition Pro Android TV

Tuesday, December 7th, 2021

tech4xmas 2021: The Q Series Quantum Edition (QE) Pro series are the flagship Android TVs by Singapore brand PRISM+. I tried the Q65-QE Pro and found that it indeed offered excellent value-for-money. Quality that’s almost as good as the flagship of established brands – but at a fraction of the price.

The PRISM+ Q65-QE Pro standing pretty in front of my Samsung 55-inch TV. The image quality isn’t far behind but the price is like half. Super value-for-money.

Appearance-wise, the Q65-QE Pro looks really smart with almost no bezel on three edges – left, right and top sides.

Along the bottom of the TV is a 1-cm bezel as well as the brand logo and LED status light on a thin extension below the centre of that bezel.

Excluding the stand, the panel measures 1447 x 827 x 85 mm with a weight of 19.9kg

Including the stand which is very stable, the TV measures 1447 x 904 x 290 mm, with a weight of 20.15kg.

The TV can also be mounted on the wall with a mounting measuring 400 x 200mm.

Picture quality-wise, Dolby Vision’s HDR technology provides good natural colours, with better tone definition, contrast management and greater detail.

The IPS panel accords a wide viewing angle (178 degrees), while the Quantum Color backlit technology of the series further enhances overall brightness and contrast, as well as greater colour volume and accuracy than similarly priced TVs.

Compared to its predecessors (Q-series), the Q65-QE definitely offers a wider colour gamut and higher dynamic range.

In fact, I find the image quality quite almost as good as my own Samsung 55” TV, which is priced roughly twice the Q65-QE Pro.

Audio wise, I find the 2 x 10W output adequate – I don’t think an external soundbar is necessary, except perhaps to boost the bass.
