If 40 inches is too small, and 50 is too big, you’ll want Hisense’s 45-inch TV

Television and electronics manufacturer Hisense has announced a 45-inch television, and if you’re looking at that number and thinking it’s pretty unusual, you’re absolutely right. It’s the first 45-inch screen to come out, and it’s the result of Hisense talking to TV buyers and finding many found a 40-inch screen too small, and a 50-inch screen too big. A TV screen isn’t like a piece of clothing you can have tailored for your body shape. The only way to get exactly the right size for your home, is for companies to provide more choices, hence Hisense’s decision to introduce the 45-inch model.

It’s not like a massive vacuum between 40-inch and 50-inch screen existed. Hisense itself sells 43-inch screens and 48-inch screens, but there is definitely less choice than if you’re in the market for a 50-inch or larger television. The model in question is the 45N5750, and it has plenty of the must-have TV features around at the moment, including 4K UHD resolution and HDR10 support, plus compatibility with Hybrid Log Gamma (or HLG), the new live-broadcast high-dynamic range system.

Onboard Wi-Fi and an Ethernet connection make it possible to view live-streaming services, and the Hisense TV has Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, and BBC iPlayer installed, along with a web browser. It also uses Anyview Cast and Stream for content sent from a PC or smartphone, which helps if you don’t have a Chromecast or similar device plugged in. A quad-core processor keeps everything running, and should provide enough power to ensure it does so smoothly.

The 45-inch TV has been announced for the U.K. at the moment, and can be purchased through retailers such as Richer Sounds, where it’s priced at 540 British pounds, or about $700. We’ve contacted Hisense to see if there are plans to release the 45N5750 in the U.S., and will update when we hear back. Hisense is a small player in the U.S. at the moment, with a selection of models available from stores including Walmart and Best Buy. However, the brand is gaining international attention through a series of massive sponsorship campaigns, from the 2018 FIFA World Cup to the Red Bull Formula One team.

This 85-inch Samsung 8K TV has an incredible $3,000 price cut this week
The Samsung QN900C Neo QLED 8K TV in a living room.

One of the best upgrades you can make to a home theater system is grabbing yourself a large and high-end TV, and for that, you may want to consider this massive 85-inch Samsung QN900C. Not only is it one of the best TVs on the market, but it even runs at an 8K resolution, so even if you have it up close, you won't notice the pixel density. Of course, it is an expensive piece of kit, and it usually goes for an eye-watering $8,000, although you can get it from Samsung directly for $5,000, which is a whopping $3,000 discount and probably one of your few chances to grab such a high-end TV for a lower price.

Why you should buy the 85-inch Samsung Neo QLED 8K QN900C
Like some of the other best QLED TVs, the Samsung QN900C is packed with a lot of excellent features, starting with the Neural Quantum Processor 8K, which can upscale your content up to 8K resolution. That's absolutely needed given that there essentially isn't any 8K content available on the market right now, so having an upscaler like this means it's compatible with your current and even older content, although the results will vary depending on the source material. It also comes with Neo Quantum HDR 8K, which is just Samsung's own high-end proprietary HDR, but at least it also supports HDR10+, so you can access pretty much all HDR content.

Our favorite headphones, Sony WH-1000XM5, are $70 off today

With how loud and crowded the world has gotten, having a solid pair of headphones to keep all the noise out can be really helpful. When it comes to active noise cancellation (ANC), our pick for the best headphones on the market is the Sony WH-1000XM5, which easily competes with the likes of the AirPods Max. That said, the XM5s can get really expensive, which is why we're happy to see this deal on Amazon that brings the price down to $329 from its original $400 price, saving you a solid $71, which may not seem like much, but it's a great amount for one of the best headphones you can grab.

Why you should buy the Sony WH-1000XM5
There is a lot to love about the Sony WH-1000XM5, and the excellent audio fidelity is one of them. Ironically enough, it has smaller drivers than the previous generation, and yet it still manages to upgrade the audio quality with a balanced overall sound and a surprisingly great bass response that makes it thumpy but doesn't muddy the sound. Realistically, you can pretty much listen to any genre of music you want on the XM5s, although it does slightly favor those who prefer a more neutral sound rather than something a bit more bass-heavy.

Staring deep into the anti-glare abyss of the Samsung S95D
Samsung S95D Anti-Glare

From the moment the Samsung S95D OLED made its first appearance at CES 2024, I’ve called its anti-glare, anti-reflection technology a game-changer for OLED TVs. But the moment those words left my mouth, concern that this technology might somehow degrade the picture quality started up.

Since then, I’ve seen the S95D in a couple of other settings, but I’ve always said I would reserve my final opinion until I properly review the TV. And I'm prepared to be proven wrong.
