    5 best lenses for shooting video with a Canon camera (with video examples)

    UPDATE: We’ve added some lens options for the Canon RF mount and refreshed some content to include the latest top picks and choices for video shooters.

    Thinking about taking the dive into video with your Canon camera? Here’s 5 lenses worth a look. Whether you shoot wedding films or music videos, short films, wildlife, events, commercials, real estate or corporate there’s something here for every project and budget.

    I’ve been shooting video for about eighteen years. First using an old school Canon Vixia camcorder; then in 2010 everything changed when I bought the EOS Rebel T2i and entered the world of DSLR video. I never looked back, eventually moving to a EOS 60D and then to the brilliant auto-focus equipped 70D, and to the full-frame mirrorless Canon EOS R5. Most recently I’ve been shooting Stark Insider videos and short film projects on the Panasonic Lumix GH6 with EF adapter and RED Dragon cameras.

    TL;DR:

    If you want to buy ONE and only one lens get the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 and call it a day.

    Note though you’ll need a stabilizer like a gimbal or tripod as this Sigma doesn’t have image stabilization. Otherwise, it’s an absolutely exceptional lens. Pair it with the Sigma 50-100mm and you’ve got a lot of coverage for your next video or film project.

    Lenses can be confusing. There are many choices. Lots of types (telephoto, prime, macro, fisheye). And a seemingly endless array of manufacturers (Canon, Tamron, Sigma, Zeiss, etc.). One thing I’ve learned: a lens made primarily for taking photos may not necessarily be the best for video.

    We found these lenses to consistently be some of the best performing when shooting video. If you own a newer Canon mirrorless like the EOS RP, R3, R5/R5C, R6, R7, R8 or R10 (Canon has been on a mirrorless bender of late!) rest assured you can use any of the RF lenses natively, of course, and the EF ones using an inexpensive EF to RF adapter. Basically, you get the best of both worlds and have a lot of choice.

    Top 5: Best lenses for shooting video with a Canon DSLR or mirrorless camera

    • Canon EF 24–105mm f/4L is II USM
    • Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II (The Nifty Fifty)
    • Rokinon Cine 85mm t/1.5 with De-Clicked Aperture
    • Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art
    • Canon 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

    And for mirrorless RF shooters here’s an excellent native option:

    • Canon RF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM

    Image Stabilization

    A quick tip:

    If you’re getting into DSLR video for the first time I highly recommend you look for a lens with image stabilization. On Canon lenses that feature is usually denoted with “IS” in the model name. Without lens stabilization you’ll get what’s called “micro-jiggles” when shooting handheld. You can use a tripod or some form of rig to correct that issue, but if you’re like me, you’re doing run-n-gun and shooting documentary style… which leads me to this point…

    “Best” ?

    Declaring these particular lenses as “best” for DSLR or mirrorless video is a bit of a misnomer. Let me admit that right up front. There is no best really. It depends on how you’re planning to use the camera.

    First establish up front what style of video you’ll be filming.

    A narrative feature will have a script and storyboard. Scenes will be carefully constructed, blocked, lit. In this situation, prime lenses (those with fixed focal lengths) are usually the best as they offer the sharpest quality image. On the other hand if you’re shooting a documentary you may not necessarily know where your subject is going to move, so a stabilized telephoto on your shoulder may work best.

    For Stark Insider, we shoot food & wine, backstage theater, experimental short films and sit-down interview videos. Again, mostly run-n-gun. I don’t have time to set-up scenes. We are often, if not always, time constrained. That means a flexible lens that works well in a variety of situations (also, I usually don’t have the luxury of being able to change lenses on the go, so I usually need a do-it-all).

    Invest in Quality Glass When You Can

    Some of the best lenses on the market, such as the “L” series from Canon, can cost thousands of dollars. Are they worth it?

    Yes and no.

    Keep in mind a good lens can last a lifetime. Invest in quality once (“buy once, cry once”), and you’ll be able to enjoy it for decades to come, moving it from one Canon body (or EF mount camera) to the next EF camera or even RF with an adapter. That doesn’t mean that you need to spend a fortune mind you. All of the lenses I use listed below are under $1,000 – and, yet, the results can be perfectly acceptable, even at times amazing. Again, it comes down to goals. If you’re planning to project 4K at a movie theater, well then you’re probably already renting Cine Primes or something like that. On the other hand if you’re like me you’re primarily delivering at 1080p or 4K for the web (YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram and other social media), and don’t necessarily need a $25,000 lens to get decent results and viewers watching.

    In the End the Storytelling Matters Most

    I admit it. I get caught up too in the hoopla. Panasonic Gh5! Sony a7 4K mirrorless cameras! Canon EOS R5! Wow! Wow! Wow!

    Search YouTube and you’ll find endless comparos for cameras and lenses. Cats. Flowers. Buildings. How great it is to test new gear, or, better still, watch someone else test new gear? Gonzo!

    I love all that stuff… but my advice is not to get too fixated with all the infatuating minutia. Get out there and shoot! Practice. Learn from your mistakes. Refine your style. Instead of searching for the latest comparison watch some tutorials on composition, editing, and using the camera to create a visual narrative. I’m not quite there yet, really. I cringe at my early work, and I cringe often at my recent work — so many mistakes. Just keep in mind a lens, a camera… or any piece of gear for that matter, will only get you so far. A great idea with plenty of creative spark could turn out beautifully when shot on just, say, an iPad or iPhone. After all, compelling storytelling is about grabbing our attention, stoking our imagination, and then engaging a variety of human emotion. No lens alone, no matter how sharp, can do that. That’s our job, as visual storytellers.

    Okay, then, onto the gear. I’ve listed these in the order that I’d recommend to someone building out a collection of lenses from scratch. If you had all these in your bag I dare say I think you’d be well equipped for just about anything (Zombie apocalypse excluded).

    5 Best Lenses for Shooting Video with a Canon Camera

    A great all-rounder. New to video, and want to buy just one lens to get started? This Canon lens is the one. With Canon’s “Dual Pixel” AF you can touch the LCD of your Canon and the camera will automatically focus and track a subject, even as it moves — just like a camcorder. It works brilliantly. Canon regularly updates this lens and this is the latest version with USM (Ultrasonic Motor) for super quiet focusing. That’s great, because with this lens you don’t have to worry about the camera’s microphone picking up unwanted sounds. I’ve been shooting most recent Stark Insider videos using this one, and it’s never let me down. Keep in mind this lens is best for scenes with good lighting or outdoors.

    Most of this video Wrong’s What I Do Best was shot using the 24-105mm (for a couple of the shots of San Francisco I used the Sigma mentioned below and also an 18-135mm for some wide shots).

    VIDEO EXAMPLE: Canon 24-105mm STM Lens

    Wrong’s What I Do Best – San Francisco Art Institute from Stark Insider on Vimeo.

    Canon makes three 50mm lenses. I like the cheapest Nifty-Fifty the best. At only $110 this is an amazing deal. For that you get quality glass that belies its price that works wonders in low light thanks to its speed (f/1.8). IS is absent so you’ll need a (very) steady hand or (preferred) a rig. Still, I’ve managed to capture filmic like footage handheld with this beauty. Thanks to its glorious bokeh (the unfocused area of the frame) you might just be blown away by the results. The craziest lens deal of all time!

    If you have the first two lenses I mention above you’re off to a good start. Want to get fancier without breaking the bank? Try this Rokinon.

    This Rokinon is a “Cine” lens which in this case means the aperture has been “de-clicked” — instead of adjusting the f-stop using the camera controls, you’ll adjust it by rotating the ring on the lens. Obviously don’t buy this lens first, it takes practice. Everything is manual. So it’s not ideal for run-n-gun. I still carry it with me when I have a few extra minutes, especially at night. I can dial in a cinematic scene and the results are often spectacular.

    Keep in mind many Canon cameras feature a APS-C sensor, meaning they are not full frame (like the Canon EOS R5). The crop-factor is about 1.6x. Meaning this lens will in fact result in a shot that is more like ~ 130mm. I like this one for filming people from a distance. Again, that filmic look!

    Sigma set the camera world ablaze with this lens. All you could hear anyone talk about in recent years, especially those into video, was that Sigma lens… and its incredible sharpness and overall performance (rivaling that of glass costing two- to three-times as much). Many even suggest that because this lens is so good that it is in essence three primes in one: 18, 24, and 35mm. In fact that’s exactly how I treat it. With the above mentioned three lenses I’m covered for image stabilized zoom from 18-105mm, have a sharp 50mm, and cinema 85mm for artistic stuff. This Sigma give me wider angles and superb low-light performance (f/1.8). An instant classic.

    Again, no image stabilization. Keep that in mind.

    Still, I shot this artsy (okay, quirky) short A GIFT FROM ME TO YOU video on the Sigma 18-35mm handheld, using modest warp stabilizer here and there in Adobe Premiere Pro.

    VIDEO EXAMPLE: A Gift From Me To You

    Sigma 18-35mm Art Lens

    For wide shots, Vlogging, and wildlife here’s a solid, low cost Canon option. I have not tested it. But I’m adding it to the list because it’s (a) only $300; (b) features STM meaning it will focus without noise and pairs well with Canon camera bodies; and (c) should provide for nice wide angle shots. It has IS so it will be suitable for handheld work. It’s not a fast lens (f4.5-5.6) so I’d avoid low light shoots.

    5 Lenses to Rule the World

    … and scene!

    With these 5 lenses in your bag or studio, you’re pretty much set for anything. The 24-105mm with USM is a perfect all-rounder, ready for just about any occasion, easy to use and almost silent. If I want to get some filmic looks I’ll swap it out for the Canon 50mm or (if I have extra time) the Rokinon 85mm. In low light I’ll switch to the amazing Sigma 18-35mm and zoom… using my feet! Finally for wide angles I’d use the new Canon 10-18mm STM – I could see this coming in handy, say, for sweeping shots of Napa, San Francisco and in and around Silicon Valley where Stark Insider is based.

    What about L Glass?

    Aside from the RF and EF 24-105mm I didn’t recommend other Canon’s premium EF L glass. If you have the budget I’d consider swapping out my #1 lens with a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L (available in EF and RF mounts). It’s a staple of the professional trade. With a pro price to match: $2,399. Is it worth it? If you’re just getting started with video I’d say probably not — there’s too much to learn first, and besides you can get great results from the lenses I mention above. If you’re a pro, then you likely already own this lens (or rent it). It’s a classic. Phenomenal performance. Again, remember, “best lens” is a very subjective topic.

    Parting Thought: The Beauty of the EF and RF Mount

    Five of these lenses I’m recommending above use Canon’s EF mount, with the bonus choice being RF. I love these mounts. Among videographers and filmmakers the EF mount has become an industry standard (much like PL for high end work) — and now the RF mount is making quick inroads. That means if you decide to take the leap and invest in a cinema camera body, such as a lovely Blackmagic Cinema Camera or superb Canon EOS Cinema series (C100/300/500) or a RED Komodo-X you’ll be able to use all your existing Canon glass. That’s a great way to protect your investments. Better still, there’s readily available RF to EF adapters so you can continue to leverage your older glass on newer Canon camera bodies.

    Clinton Stark’s 5 best lenses for shooting video with a Canon DSLR or mirrorless camera

    • Canon EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II USM

    • Canon 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

    Bonus option for RF mount:

    And finally, above all else: have fun shooting video with your Canon DSLR or mirrorless camera. It can be challenging at times, but in my experience the learning and effort pays dividends and is a rewarding process!

    Canon EOS 70D camera review – controls, how does it work?

    Canon EOS 70D Camera Appearance and Controls

    If you look at the camera you will see the standard SLR camera layout:

    the lens is in the center, on the right side is an enlarged part, which hides a capacious battery and functional mode control buttons on the top of the case. Additional elements are located on the back of the camera as well as an LCD display and a video finder.
    The camera itself consists of two main parts:

    • separate lens
    • case containing the controls and information display

    The body of the camera is made of plastic, the surfaces that touch the fingers contain an artificial coating – something between plastic and rubber. Therefore, the camera is comfortable to hold and it absolutely does not fall out of the hands, in any weather, in heat and cold. In addition, the right side of the body curves comfortably to fit the fingers of the right hand. Therefore, it is very convenient to hold the camera with one hand. Although if you are a fragile girl, then it is probably not very convenient for you to hold the camera in this way.
    The camera is quite massive, but it is a pleasant heaviness, which indirectly indicates the seriousness of the camera.
    By the way, the weight of the case with the battery is about 750 grams. Here you need to add about the same amount if you click the lens.

    In general, the wind cannot simply blow the camera away. 🙂

    The lens is attached through a metal connector to the housing. For ease of fastening, there are 2 types of dots on the metal fastening ring itself – white and red.

    Your task is simply to align the dot that is on the corresponding lens and turn it until it clicks into place.

    • Red dot – mark for attaching lenses EF
    • White dot – mark for attaching EF-S lenses

    What does the abbreviation EF, EF-S mean – I will explain in my separate article about camera lenses.

    Let’s see what’s on the front of the camera.

    Not far from the lens itself, we see a button that fixes the lens. In order to remove the lens, you need to press the button and turn it.

    Button to force the flash on if you have “Creative Mode” enabled for photography.

    On the other side of the camera, just below the lens ring, is the Depth Preview button. What is it for?

    If you have set the aperture and depth of field (this is true if you are working in manual camera mode, automatic mode is disabled) you can check how your future frame will look, taking into account the selected parameters.
    For example, when you want to blur the background behind the subject, you change aperture and shutter speed. Then, after the settings before shooting, if you see in the video finders that the object is in focus, and behind it is a blurry background (bokeh), then after pressing this button you will see that you have a clear background. So somewhere you are wrong. Need to fix. In this case, you do not need to click the frame every time and then see how it turned out.

    The camera connectors are located on the side face.
    Metal eyelet for attaching a belt and a set of connectors, which is divided into 2 functional groups:

    Group 1:
    External microphone input
    Remote control input
    Group 2:
    HDMI output for viewing photos and videos through the camera
    AV – output (for devices supporting audio-video) or digital connector for connection.

    They are protected by rubber covers that can be folded back to gain access. The covers cannot be lost, as they are attached with rubber holders and are attached to the case itself.

    On the other side of the housing there is another slot, closed with a plug. This is where the SD card is located.

    There is no longer a rubber cap, but a plastic door that snaps into place after inserting a memory card.
    Standard size SD card, micro-SD is not used here – this is not a smartphone.
    An added bonus of this placement is that if you put the camera on a tripod, you can access the card without removing the camera. The compartment is located on the side, and not at the bottom, as in other camera models.

    There is a light indicator on the front of the housing, not far from the lens. It is used for red-eye reduction and also flashes during the countdown if you have set the interval timer to shoot. Those. The camera will take a picture at the set time interval.

    Right in front of the protruding battery compartment where the right hand is held is the remote control control sensor.

    On the right is the inscription – EOS 70D – and the Canon brand itself is in the area of ​​\u200b\u200bthe opening flash.

    An interesting solution to where the shutter button is located. It seems to be on the upper end of the case and on the front. This was achieved due to a small bevel of the edge. At the same time, the index finger immediately lies in the right place and there is no need to look for a button if you took the camera in one hand even for the first time.
    This is all the functionality that is placed on the front of the case.

    And now the fun begins! Let’s see what’s on the top.

    The left side of the camera is given to the mode dial.
    The wheel is combined with the chamber switch. Two main offices are in the same place. Therefore, you practically do not need to move your finger much to control them. With the exception of the innovation that Canon has added is a mode switch lock. In order to scroll through the mode, you need to press the latch, which is located in the middle of the circle.

    Side edges on the wheel prevent slipping of the finger during shifting.
    Camera turn-on rocker has 2 positions – off – OFF, on – ON.

    Let’s take a look at what’s on the mode ring. This is a practical standard set, as on all Canon cameras. All interesting modes are hidden in the menu of the main sections and are controlled through the camera display.

    Let’s look at them.
    Green on the symbols indicates automatic mode.

    A+ green – automatic shooting mode. The camera itself selects the desired shutter speed and aperture. All you have to do is turn on the auto-focus and the image stabilizer in the lens, and you get a big automatic soapbox – catch the sight and shoot. 🙂
    Crossed-out flash icon means the same auto mode, but with the flash off. If you constantly take pictures on the machine, then the constantly jumping out flash starts to unnerve. This mode will come in handy. At the same time, you must have steady hands so as not to spoil the photo in low light conditions.
    But from my own experience, I had no problems with this.

    CA is a creative shooting mode. It’s almost automatic, but you can manually control the shooting options of your choice.

    SCN Special scene selection:

    • Portrait
    • Landscape
    • Macro
    • Sport
    • Night portrait
    • Handheld at night

    HDR backlight – In this mode, if you shoot objects against bright light, the camera will take 3 shots with different lighting modes.

    On my own, I really liked the sports and macro modes.
    Sport mode allows you to take a series of shots with good sharpness even for a beginner.
    I chose the mode – follow the object and shoot. And that’s it!

    Here are some examples of the Canon EOS 70D:

    These beginner modes will completely cover your initial, basic needs if you have just started to master photography.
    Some time will pass and after 5-10 thousand frames you yourself will want to go to the creative zone of manual settings.

    These modes are:
    P – Programmed AE
    Tv – Shutter-Priority AE
    Av – Aperture-Priority AE
    M – manual exposure
    B – bulb exposure
    C – user mode, allows you to program your settings.

    Such words – exposure, aperture, shutter speed – the topic of a separate article, which I will talk about in my articles. Now let’s take a look at the controls further.

    Next comes the automatic flash, which automatically opens if the camera does not have enough light.
    There is also a hot shoe in the flash area for attaching an optional flash.
    In the middle of the metal connector are the flash sync pins.
    The right side of the body is given to the function buttons for shooting mode settings and the auxiliary display.

    AF – Autofocus mode works in creative modes. Allows you to select:

    – One-Shot AF
    – Intelligent AF
    – Tracking AF (useful for sports photos if you want to catch an athlete)

    DRIVE – Selectable operating mode
    – single frame shooting – 1 frame per 1 button release
    – high speed shooting – about 7 frames per second.
    – low-speed shooting – about 3 frames per second
    for these modes you just need to keep the camera shutter pressed all the time. The camera will start shooting by itself at the desired speed.
    – similar modes, but only silent – no clicks are heard. It is convenient to shoot in museums or on special. Activities without attracting attention.
    – shooting delays. Allows you to remove from 10 sec. Or 2 sec. Delay yourself or someone.
    – work with a delay through the self-timer. I also plan to show and tell how to work with an external timer. A very handy thing for effects – Time-Lapse – frame-by-frame shooting.
    ISO sensitivity selection.
    Metering button (not used in automatic modes) – allows you to adjust the methods for estimating the amount of light that enters the frame when shooting and select the desired mode. The camera itself determines by which point or group of points or by the average value of points to analyze the brightness of the frame.
    and focus mode selection button – you can select focus schemes (single point, area selection, 19-point focus). It turns out that these are sights on which you set where the camera will focus in the frame.

    The control dial allows you to scroll and select the desired options. But to be honest, with the advent of the multi-touch display, its significance as the main control element has been lost.

    Stop at the large information display. It displays all current shooting settings.

    Here is a brief explanation of the parameters

    With this, let’s finish our review of the top of the EOS 70D’s controls and move on to the back of the camera body. Here we are waiting for pleasant surprises that Canon has taken care of.

    The first button Menu – after pressing it, the camera settings are displayed on the LCD screen.

    The menu itself is divided into several main parts:

    • camera settings
    • photo view settings and video finders
    • additional settings

    Camera settings (shown in red) allow you to control shooting modes and set utility functions that help you take pictures.
    See list of settings screens.

    By the way, depending on the selected shooting mode (remember about the mode wheel at the top of the camera), the menu displays exactly those blocks that are responsible for the mode. It is very convenient and does not confuse control.

    The photo display settings menu (highlighted in blue) controls how the footage is displayed. Additionally, you can connect auxiliary tools that immediately allow you to evaluate a photo, for example: highlighting overexposed areas, brightness histogram, autofocus indicators.

    And a block of additional settings. Highlighted in yellow. They answer all sorts of little things, such as file numbering, video output format, battery information, camera firmware version.

    Additional 2 pages given for Custom Functions – engl. the owner of the camera can put his desired function on the desired button.

    A quick call to your settings is made from the last page of “My Menu” (green color) By the way, the “My Menu” section is shown only for manual settings. You don’t need it for automatic mode.

    The next button on the left side is INFO button

    If you turn on the LCD monitor and press this button, you can view additional information on shooting modes depending on the selected settings.
    Pressing the button sequentially switches viewing modes in a circle.
    An interesting trick is to turn on the electronic level in the LCD using this button.
    The camera helps you and tells you if you have twisted the position by a degree. In this case, the level changes color to red, and if the level is horizontal, it changes color to green. The only minus is that the level tracks left and right tilts, but does not track movement if you “filled up” the camera back and forth. This feature is available in more expensive cameras, such as the 7D.

    In the eyepiece of the camera’s viewfinder, the level is displayed according to the same logic, but schematically. The colors don’t change. Depending on the angle of inclination, additional lines are shown that signal a skew. Smooth horizontal line — the camera is aligned.

    Schematic representation of the levels can be seen in 2 places – the eyepiece of the viewfinder and the LCD display

    We continue our acquaintance – the eyepiece of the viewfinder allows you to control 98% of the scene, unlike 100% of the viewing area of ​​the 7D camera. But it doesn’t matter in my opinion. There is a rubber soft edging around the perimeter of the glass, so if you shake hard, you won’t gouge out your eyes.

    A useful bonus for those who wear glasses is the diopter adjustment. Thus, you do not need to wear glasses to look into the distance through the viewfinder. To do this, there is a wheel that changes the sharpness by scrolling up or down, because “+” or “-“. Correction works from -3 to 1 (diopter)

    By the way, the viewfinder conveniently displays all the necessary information.

    Under the photo are all the settings, in the center of the photo you can see a semi-transparent grid and marks-sights, which are used for focusing. If point-to-point sharpening is successful, the desired elements will glow green. If the camera cannot adjust the sharpness, the squares are highlighted in red. Thus, the sight hints that something needs to be changed in order to get a good picture.

    It is very strange why there is no sensor to turn off the display when the face approaches the viewfinder eyepiece. All ordinary smartphones do a similar thing. And here, there is no such thing. Maybe again a marketing ploy and this option will be added in the next model?

    Approaching the mouth-watering highlight of the camera interface – a multi-touch TFT screen, with rotation along the axis.

    TFT Multi-Touch – 3:2 (3.0″) vari-angle Clear View II display with 3:2 aspect ratio. This is about 1 million dots for displaying a photo.
    If earlier in other cameras you had to press or memorize a bunch of buttons, now all you need is just to poke your finger at the right place. And viewing photos is a pleasure. You do not need to press the plus sign several times to enlarge the photo in more detail – just expand the scale with two fingers or scroll through the photo in the same way as you do on smartphones. I wonder why this screen was not delivered to a more expensive model – Canon EOS 7D. Maybe it’s a Canon marketing ploy?
    Moreover, the display rotates in all directions. You can shoot with him from the bottom, from the top, from the side. As you prefer.

    In my opinion, this display makes it much easier to control the camera. And the functions of shooting by touching your finger on the display are very convenient. Also, in the frame preview mode through the display, you can now tell the camera exactly where to focus, on which object to focus attention – simply by clicking on the desired place on the display. This is especially convenient if you choose automatic mode – Focus on the selected point.

    Moving on to the second part of the chamber.

    At the top is a useful button for those who want to take video or photos through the display. The START/STOP button is combined. It switches modes – display on the display or viewfinder if you click on it. And if you move the lever, you can change what exactly you want to record – video or photo.
    Moreover, if you started shooting video, and you press this button, photos will also be recorded. This button is useful if you want to work in automatic mode.

    The Q button (quick) has been added to this camera. At the touch of a button, you can control the basic settings – auto-focus, burst or single photo, flash settings, photo quality. In general, all the necessary minimum for the work of a novice photographer.

    Photo review button – located below the Q button. Pressing this button allows you to display the captured frames on the display and scroll through them. It is more convenient to do this by flipping through the frames with your finger. Do not forget – we have a multi-touch display.

    If you don’t like the photo – delete it – – click the trash can button.

    Selection wheel is also combined. In the middle of it is a selection button, and if you turn it and press it, you can specify the options you need.

    TV Samsung 75″ Q90R 4K Smart QLED TV 2019 review, description, reviews, specifications

    Back in February, Samsung announced all TV models that will be on sale during 2019. In a more detailed acquaintance with the characteristics, the Samsung 75″ Q90R 4K Smart QLED TV attracted special attention. Compared to previous models, a significant increase in performance is immediately evident. In addition, the manufacturer has eliminated a number of critical defects that previously bothered users.

    Design

    The TV received a simple design, no decorative elements, only a combination of gray and black. There are also no frames, the screen received only an elegant design with a narrow profile. In general, the presented model in design practically does not differ from its predecessor Q9FN.
    The center stand deserves special attention. It is quite compact and consists of two parts – the base and a small L-shaped rack. The base is metal, painted grey. There are special rubber pads on the bottom that provide excellent grip on any surface. The stand acts as a connecting element between the TV and the base. In general, the design is reliable, the TV takes a strictly vertical position.
    The manufacturer also provided a wall mount. However, you need to take into account that the mass of the TV is 42.5 kg. Therefore, it is necessary to use reliable fixing elements. By the way, with the stand, the weight increases to 52.5 kg.

    Patch

    The Q90R has only one port for the One Invisible Connection cord required to connect the external One Connect box. It is he who provides power supply, data transfer. The cable length is 5 m, but the thickness is only 3.4 mm. However, under the transparent shell is a fiber optic cable for data transmission and a copper cable for power. The manufacturer warns in the manual that the cable should be laid without sharp bends.
    The One Connect module stands out with its rectangular shape, without protruding elements. Quite large and heavy, weighing almost 3 kg. The case is plastic, gray and black shades are also prevalent. Air vents are provided on the side and bottom panel.
    Various connectors and ports located on the rear and side walls:

    • 4 HDMI;
    • 3 USB;
    • LAN;
    • Antenna cable entry/exit;
    • Digital audio;
    • WiFi;
    • Bluetooth;

    Remote and other control methods

    The Samsung 75″ Q90R 4K Smart QLED TV comes with a compact remote. Power is provided by two small batteries. The number of buttons is minimal – two rocker keys to adjust the sound and start the desired channel. There is no backlight, but there is a microphone hole in the front. By pressing the microphone key, the sound will be muted, thereby the TV is waiting for a voice command. An internet connection is required for voice control to function.

    Remote control via Bluetooth. Accordingly, when you turn on the TV, you need to pair the devices. This happens automatically, but if it didn’t happen, then you need to point the remote at the TV and hold down two keys.
    It is also possible to connect a keyboard, mouse and joystick. The mouse only functions in the browser window. During testing, the TV was connected to various models of mice and keyboards. All of them worked stably and without failures.

    Picture

    The Q9FN’s predecessor was heavily criticized for its poor viewing angle. Especially, this fact became even more obvious when compared with OLED TV. Samsung took into account all the comments and found a way to solve the problem.

    Ultra Viewing Angle

    Viewing angle problem solved with Ultra Viewing Angle technology. This novelty provides additional layers on the panel. Their task is to reduce the loss of light and guarantee optimal distribution. The result turned out to be perfect, a good picture is observed from any angle. All shades remain saturated, and black is pure. Accordingly, OLEDs have lost their advantage.
    Q90R supports Blu-ray 4K by automatically launching HDR Movie functionality. The output picture is perfect, all colors and shades are expressive and clear.

    Brightness

    The volume of backlight dimming zones remained at the same level as last year’s models – 480 zones. The maximum possible brightness is 2000 nits. Constantly functioning automatic brightness adjustment, which is sensitive to the general lighting in the room. However, it is worth noting that even in a room with good lighting, Q90R with maximum brightness provides a decent picture.

    Scaling

    8K TV models received the new AI scaling functionality a little earlier, so many users could get acquainted with it. The engine works real miracles, it reduces noise, increases sharpness. Even normal quality videos are played back with exceptional clarity. The picture is rich and natural.

    Game Mode

    Samsung has been focusing more on gaming lately. The novelty received two new additional features designed for gamers:

    • Real Game Enhancer – Activates the dynamic black equalizer. Due to this, color reproduction is significantly improved, contrast is increased.
    • Dynamic Black Equalizer – makes the picture in dark areas more clear and easy to see.

    Sound

    The Samsung 75″ Q90R 4K Smart QLED TV features a 4.2 channel speaker system with 60W output. However, many experts were more interested in the AI ​​Sound functionality. Its essence is that there is a complete optimization of the sound at the level of the metadata of the running file.
    Now the TV is adjusting the sound online. For this, several microphones are provided. The TV sound received from them is constantly analyzed and, if necessary, immediately makes changes. As a result, the sound is more voluminous and spacious. Movies are fun to watch.

    Smart TV

    The Smart Things interface provides full control over Smart Home compatible devices. Accordingly, household appliances, lamps, etc. can be assembled into a single whole. Connect and control is the main motto of the platform.
    The menu provides instant access to the connected equipment and additional information about the current status.
    Smart language assistants are provided. However, even their constant development does not allow full control of external smart home devices. To do this, you will need to use Amazon Echo or another similar solution.
    The Q90R also has an Ambient option. TV instantly adjusts to the current situation and displays interesting information to the viewers at the moment when the TV is not used for its main purpose.

    Multimedia content and TV tuner

    In addition to the satellite tuner, the presented model received a tuner for watching analog, digital and cable broadcasting. The reception level is the highest, even on a home antenna all channels are and are shown in high quality.
    Another interesting feature is that you can record a certain channel while watching a completely different one. There is also the possibility of recording channels with the possibility of time shift.
    The TV has received a variety of codecs that allow you to play AAC, MP3, MP4, OGG, WMA, etc. audio files. With video files, the situation is even better, even files with H.265 at 10 bits and UHD resolutions at 60 fps with HDR are played. However, there are also unexpected exceptions. Although in general, TV copes with all modern formats.

    In conclusion

    The predecessor of the Q9FN was already excellent, and only the viewing angles slightly spoiled the overall impression. The Samsung 75″ Q90R 4K Smart QLED TV is devoid of even this drawback, which allows it to compete with OLED models as much as possible. Accordingly, we have an excellent QLED TV, which provides excellent black tones, as well as a high-quality picture at a high viewing angle.
    During testing, the TV showed itself only on the positive side. It reproduces almost all current formats, Smart TV stands out for its wide functionality, the ability to record TV programs. All in all, Samsung has released a truly high-end TV that will surely take the lead in the best TVs of 2019.

    Dyson HP04 vs. HP02 vs. HP01: Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Review

    What’s the Best Dyson Pure Hot + Cool air purifier?

    Finding the best air purifier comes down to personal preference. Your needs and desires will differ from someone else’s when looking to purchase an air purifier.

    Dyson Pure Hot + Cool air purifier

    That being said, Dyson makes excellent, top-performing air purifiers that meet the needs of many users. Whether you’re looking for something compact for personal use, or something powerful enough to purify a large living space…Dyson has a selection of good options.

    Pros

    • Triple Functionality. The Dyson Pure Hot Cool HP01, HP02, and HP04 all offer heating, cooling, and air purifying in one unit. The Intelligent Thermostat means once the specified temperature is reached, the heating or cooling turns off automatically while air purifying continues.
    • Ideal for allergy and asthma sufferers. Dyson’s sealed filtration system captures up to 99.97% of all allergens, odors, and harmful air particles. This ensures that the air in the room is almost perfectly clean, a welcome detail that both asthma and allergy sufferers can appreciate.
    • Bladeless technology. Dyson’s signature bladeless technology helps keep children and pets safe, even when the Pure Hot + Cool system is running. Each model is also easy to clean, only needing a quick wipe down every now and then. Forget about having to wipe down each blade, and any particles in the air will be removed once the unit is back in use.
    • Different options available. Each model has it’s own price point, with features and technology increasing the cost per newer model. For those who just want the triple functionality, the HP01 would meet most needs. For technology lovers, the additional features in the HP02 and HP04 are worth the extra cost.

    Cons

    • Cost can be a concern. Even with all the functionality and on board technology, the cost is still steep for an air purifier. The fact that it’s also a heater and fan helps lessen the blow. Still, these systems are definitely on the higher end of the pricing, with the HP01 being the most affordable.
    • Maintenance costs. Replacing the Dyson HEPA and carbon (in the HP04 model) filters can be pricey. One way to save is to find third party retailers with off-brand options rather than using the Dyson branded filters. Also, the better the initial air quality of the room, the longer the filters should last between replacements.

    Dyson Pure Hot + Cool HP04

    Best Overall Dyson HP Purifier

    Dyson HP04

    The Dyson HP04 is the most advanced purifier in the HP series. It offers heating, cooling, advanced filters, and maximum air flow for faster, more efficient purification performance. Check Price

    The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool HP04 is our best overall pick because of the high air flow, larger size, and technological capabilities. Of the three, the HP04 maxes out at the highest air flow of ~ 310 liters / sec.

    Real time monitoring ensures peak air quality at all times, and the various methods of control make mode changes easier than ever. It’s heavier and taller than the other models, yet still compact enough to fit atop a desk or on the floor. 

    Dyson HP04 air purifier

    When it comes to comparing the HP01 vs. HP02 vs. HP04, the HP04 is the only one that uses a dual filter design. It also has the greatest oscillation range at 350° (the HP02 has a range of 180°, while the HP01 only has 70° range). 

    Yes, it’s the most expensive of the three models. But it offers the most advanced features, capabilities, 2 filter design, and higher air flow rate.

    APP NOTE – One important note on the app. In the US and some other countries you cannot control the heating function with the app. This is due to a Federal law regarding remote control for space heaters.

    Dyson Pure Hot + Cool HP02

    Best Value Dyson HP Purifier

    Dyson HP02

    The HP02 is an excellent value if you’re looking for a Dyson purifier with heating and cooling, but don’t want to foot the bill for the HP04. It has a slightly slower air flow rate than the HP04, but is still capable of purifying air in medium to large sized rooms. Check Price

    The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool HP02 is our best value pick thanks to its lightweight design, single HEPA filter, and Quiet Mark accreditation.

    This models also has the app-based real-time air quality controls.

    The HP02 doesn’t have the super high air flow at ~ 310 liters / sec that the HP04 does, but it can still purify, heat, and cool a large room. It also offers the same technology options that the HP04 does at a lower price tag, making it a better value in our eyes.

    Dyson Link app – works with the HP Series heaters and the TP Series fans

    If you prefer a higher air flow or a dual filter system, you’ll want to go with the HP04.

    NOTE: According to Dyson purifiers with a lower airflow rate can still purify large spaces. The airflow rate refers to the speed of airflow. Slower purifiers will simply take longer to purify than models with a faster airflow rate.

    The HP02 is more expensive than the HP01, but it packs more technology features, making the higher cost worth it if technology is important to you.

    Dyson Pure Hot + Cool HP01

    The Original Dyson HP Purifier

    Dyson HP01

    The HP01 is the most basic design in the HP series, has the same filters and airflow rate as the HP02, and lacks air quality detection technology. It is also frequently as expensive or more expensive than the more advanced HP02. Check Price

    If you look at the HP01 and HP02 models, they are hard to tell apart. They both have most of the same specs:

    • Lightweight
    • Same dimensions
    • Same air flow

    But the HP01 lacks the technology features of both the HP02 and HP04. It has a digital display that will tell you the current temperature, but does not have the capability to adjust purification settings based on current indoor air quality.

    Digital Controls on the HP01

    If real-time air quality readings and automatic adjustments are important to you, the HP02 or HP04 would probably be a better choice. If you don’t need those features, the HP01 could be the model for you.

    But keep in mind that the price difference between the HP01 and the HP02 is pretty negligible. It also seems like the HP01 just isn’t as widely available at retailers. As a result, we tend to prefer the Dyson HP02 over the HP01.

    Dyson Pure Hot & Cool Purification Tests

    We use a standard purification test that all air purifiers go through for Modern Castle reviews, and the Dyson HP series is of no exception.

    How we test?

    This is how our tests are performed:

    • Close off doors, windows, and air vents in a medium-sized room
    • Start with the initial measurement of air quality once the room is sealed
    • Turn the air purifier on high and let it run for 1 hour
    • Measure the air quality again and compare it to the initial test

    Electronic testing meter we use to measure particulates and air quality

    The Numbers

    There are two indexes that we use to make the final determination, shown in the chart below.

    • PM2.5 = Particulate matter 2.5 micrometers and smaller
    • PM10 = Particulates matter 10 micrometers and smaller
    • AQI = air quality index, a standard government index based on different air quality factors

    The air quality index (a number of different independent factors go into these numbers) and the particulate matter index (how many pollutants are in the air).

    While we haven’t gotten our hands on all of the models in the Dyson HP series, we can look at other Dyson results from similar sized air purifiers to get an idea on performance.

    For example, check out the DP04, a desktop air purifier with similar dimensions and airflow.

    Dyson DP04

    You can find our full Dyson DP04 tests and review here.

    Starting Baseline

    • PM 2.5: 4.9
    • PM 10: 8.5
    • Particles: 359
    • AQI: 20

    After 1 Hour

    • PM 2. 5: 0.3
    • PM 10: 0.3
    • Particles: 29
    • AQI: 0

    Dyson Pure Cool DP04 air purifier

    Based on the size, air flow, and filter type, we would expect the results of the DP04 to be similar to the results for all of the Dyson HP air purifiers. The main differences between the HP series models are:

    • Technology: The HP04 and HP02 have improved technology systems that allow for the purifier to intelligently gauge current air quality and adjust as needed.
    • Filter Type: The Dyson HP04 uses a HEPA + Carbon filter, while the HP02 and HP01 rely on a slightly less advanced 360 Glass HEPA filter.
    • Amp Size: The amp on the DP04 is a circle, while the amp on the HP Series is more of an elongated oval.

    That being said, none of these differences are significant enough that we would expect drastic changes in overall performance between the models.

    Dyson Performance: Across the Board

    All of the Dyson air purifiers that we review live up to the name. Air quality always improves in our tests by 97% or better.

    Don’t take our word for it. Check out the numbers below, which are quantitative tests performed on two other models of Dyson air purifier — the TP04 and the TP02.

    Dyson TP04

    Starting Baseline

    • PM 2.5: 7.4
    • PM 10: 12.1

    Dyson Pure Series Types

    Dyson has an established line of air purifying series, each with unique features from other series. Currently, there are four different types:

    • HP = Heating Purifier
    • TP = Tower Purifier
    • DP = Desk Purifier
    • BP = Body Purifier

    The HP series is notably one of the most expensive series produced by Dyson, but considering features, it really brings a lot to the table.

    Top Features

    In a way, it serves as a one-stop-shop, mimicking the features and specs of many of the other Dyson air purifiers.

    • Size: They are compact enough to be considered body purifiers and desk purifiers.
    • Power: They are powerful enough to match the airflow of some tower purifiers.
    • Smart: They have real-time air quality detection.

    In addition to these features, the HP Series is the only Dyson Series that offers heating AND cooling. As a result, it can be easier to justify the higher price for a Dyson air purifier, since it can be used year-round.

    To learn more about the other Dyson air purifying model series, check out our past reviews where we break down all the specs, features, and technology options.

    Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Comparison

    Here, we breakdown all the specs of the three models to make it easy to compare each of the HP series air purifiers.

    Should you buy a Dyson Pure Hot Cool?

    Dyson has some of the best high-end air purifiers on the market. The HP series couples excellent purification and air flow with heating and cooling (via the fan). It’s a good year round option for many.

    You should consider buying a Dyson 3-in-1 air purifier if you want:

    • Apps and smart technology – While the HP01 doesn’t have wifi and app capabilities, the HP02 and HP04 do. Stay connected with the ability to track air quality and change modes even while not at home. The built in voice control uses a compatible voice service to control the unit hands free, while auto mode adjusts air flow to maintain air quality at all times.
    • Different modes – Each model offers different modes for more versatility. Use the air purifier in personal mode to keep the air flowing directly at you, or on diffusing mode to purify, and heat or cool the air in the room. Sleep mode will turn the unit to the quietest setting and dim the display, making sure sleep continues uninterrupted. In the HP02 and HP04 models, there is even more mode functionality, including auto and custom modes.
    • Year-round use – The HP series offers heating and cooling for comfortable year round use. Set it to air purify all year, with heat in the winter to warm up and fan in the summer to cool down the room. Furthermore, you can reverse airflow direction for the purification without the breeze.
    • Desktop size – Use any of these models on the desktop, at your bedside, or on the floor. The versatility and lightweight design means it can travel from room to room with minimal effort, ensuring top air quality and preferred temperature wherever you go.

    Summary

    The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool air purifiers are mid-sized purifiers that heat, cool, and purify the air. Their airflow isn’t quite as high compared to other Dyson air purifiers (namely the DP04 and TP04), however, it’s sufficient for most homes. The trade-off being that you get a little lower air flow, but gain the ability to heat the air. The ability to both heat and cool makes these great year round purifiers. For most consumers the choice comes down to the HP04 or HP02. Get the HP02 if you’re on a budget and get the HP04 if you just want the best. Given its age, lack of wifi, cost, and difficulty in finding it, the HP01 isn’t a great option, in our view.

    Dyson Pure Hot + Cool HP02 Air Purifier.

    Multifunctional air purifier
    The world is changing rapidly and many gadgets that a few years ago seemed like a technological miracle no longer suit users. We need more multifunctional and stylish devices. As an example, the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool air purifier, which combines everything you need.

    Smart purification, heating and cooling
    Air purification is always needed, regardless of the season. In summer, you want to get an influx of cool air to endure the heat. And in winter, on the contrary, you want to warm up faster after a walk in the cold. You can, of course, arrange a warehouse for equipment at home, or use one device that can cope with three tasks.

    Incredible design
    Familiar fans and heaters can hardly be called beautiful, and the problem lies in the ordinary. Dyson Pure Hot + Cool got an incredible design. The fan blades are hidden inside the device, which makes it aesthetically pleasing and, most importantly, safe for children and pets. The heating elements are located so that the body of the device does not burn the owner if accidentally touched.

    Thorough air purification
    Truly breathable substances and dust particles cannot be seen in the air, but they often surround a person. That’s what air purifiers were made for. Some of these devices trap contaminants, but not ways to keep them. The Dyson purifier really purifies the air and has even been certified as asthma & allergy friendly (ASP:18-01/101), which means it is suitable for asthmatics and allergy sufferers who need clean air.

    360˚ air purifier
    Fully sealed filter system equipped with multiple layers including activated carbon layer and HEPA glass filter. Working in tandem, they securely retain volatiles and dust particles to prevent them from flowing back into the air of the room.

    HEPA Glass Filter
    HEPA filters are already considered one of the most efficient air purifiers, but Dyson’s R&D department has worked hard to make them even more efficient. To create their filter, the engineers used nine meters of borosilicate microfibers, which were folded more than 200 times. Such filters remove 99.97% allergens and pollutants down to 0.3 microns.

    Comfortable control
    Decrease heating, or vice versa increase cold air flow. Dyson appliances always adapt to their owners. The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool has several options for working intensity. You can control the settings using the buttons on the case or using a convenient remote control without getting up from the sofa or bed.

    Whether you go for the top-of-the-line Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 with its power to rival the iPad Pro or stick to a cheaper option with the Galaxy Tab A8 it entirely depends on how you plan on using your new device. 

    We go through all the potential use cases below alongside our roundup of the best Samsung tablet deals available today. That way, you can be confident in the knowledge that you’ll come away with the most suitable tablet for your needs.

    If you find you’d like to view a few more affordable options then our guide to today’s tablet deals has a few more options, or there’s our iPad deals page for all the best prices for Apple devices.  

    We’ve also gathered together some excellent laptop deals if you decide you need a more fully-fledged machine for computing needs.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S range

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S8

    Samsung’s latest tablet is here

    Weight: 505g | Dimensions: 165.3 x 253.8 x 6.3mm | Screen size: 11-inch | Resolution: 2560 x 1600 | CPU: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 | RAM: 6GB | Storage: 128GB-256GB | Battery: 8,000mAh | Rear camera: 13MP, 6MP wide | Front camera: 12MP

    Premium design

    High-quality and responsive screen

    Free S Pen stylus included

    Minimal upgrade over Tab S7

    The brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 sports an 11-inch, 2560 x 1600 resolution screen that also offers a high refresh rate of up to 120Hz to deliver a smooth image during demanding tasks such as gaming. It also comes with a 13MP main camera and 6MP wide option on the back, as well as a 12MP ultra-wide front-facing camera best-suited to video calls. 8GB of RAM is included as standard, while storage options include a 128GB or 258GB version, with the option to expand that up to 1TB with a microSD card.

    There are more deals recently, so you can save a good chunk of money off the manufacturer’s most powerful tablet. Even more so if you trade in an old device at the same time. You’re able to order one at a number of retailers right now with many still running the promotion that gets you a free year of Disney Plus membership with your purchase.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra

    A large screen at a high price

    Weight: 726g | Dimensions: 208.6 x 326.4 x 5.5mm | Screen size: 14.6-inch | Resolution: 2960 x 1848 | CPU: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 | RAM: 8-16GB | Storage: 128GB-512GB | Battery: 11,200mAh | Rear camera: 13MP, 6MP wide | Front camera: 12MP, 12MP wide

    Huge screen

    High-quality display

    Excellent with included S Pen stylus

    Niche and expensive

    Compared to the standard tablet in this new range, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra boasts a much larger 14. 6-inch screen. Storage options are available all the way up to 512GB, while there’s also an option to increase the RAM to 12GB or 16GB – should you want the performance boost.

    Altogether, though, this is a very large, weighty and expensive bit of kit. For the everyday user, this is likely going to be overkill. The focus is definitely on creatives and professionals who need a bigger second screen – and it has the price to match those demands.

    (Image credit: Samsung)

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus

    Best for the big screen treatment

    Weight: 575g | Dimensions: 285 x 185 x 5.7mm | Screen size: 12.4-inch | Resolution: 2,800 x 1,753 | CPU: Snapdragon 865 Plus | RAM: 6GB | Storage: 128GB-512GB | Battery: 10,090mAh | Rear camera: 13MP, 5MP wide | Front camera: 8MP

    Larger, better display

    Powerful battery life

    New Snapdragon 865+ processor

    Same processor, RAM and storage as standard model

    With a 10,090mAh battery and a larger display, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus is more designed to replace a laptop in many portable capacities. You’re getting a powerful machine here, but at a $200 premium over the standard S7 model below. Considering the processor, storage and memory remains the same between both models this really is one for those who value screen real estate and battery life over all else. 

    That display panel is really something to celebrate though. With a stunning 2,800 x 1,753 resolution sitting on an OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ built in, it’s a delight to watch and with Dolby Atmos audio, even better to hear. 

    Released in August 2020, Samsung tablet deals have hit this latest release a few times over the course of the last year. That means you’ll find it with a $50 – $80 discount if you’re shopping at the right time.

    (Image credit: Samsung)

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S7

    Last generation release for non-professional users

    Weight: 498g | Dimensions: 253.8 x 165.3 x 6.3 mm | Screen size: 11-inch | Resolution: 1600 x 2560 | CPU: Snapdragon 865 Plus | RAM: 6GB-8GB | Storage: 128GB-512GB | Battery: 8000 mAh | Rear camera: 13MP, 5MP wide | Front camera: 8MP

    New Snapdragon 865+ processor

    Battery improved over S6

    Considerably cheaper than S7+

    Thicker design

    If you’re looking to pick up the latest model, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will likely be your first port of call. While the S7+ does offer a larger screen and better battery, you’re certainly paying for it with MSRP starting at $849.99. 

    Meanwhile, the standard model comes in at just $649.99 – it’s still an expensive tablet, but you’re saving $200 here and still getting the same Snapdragon 865+ processor, memory and storage options, and camera specs. You are dropping your screen resolution but that 1600 x 2560 at 120Hz with HDR10+ is certainly nothing to be sniffed at, even if it’s running on an LED panel. 

    The costs cut here are in the battery and screen, and if you’re not going to be powering through media-intensive work all day every day, it might be worth considering the cheaper option here.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite

    A cheaper alternative for lighter use

    Weight: 467g | Dimensions: 244.5 x 154.3 x 7 mm | Screen size: 10.4-inch | Resolution: 2000×1200 | CPU: Exynos 9611 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | Battery: 7,040mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 5MP

    Cheaper price point

    Strong battery life

    A little underpowered

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite actually comes in heavier than the fully fledged model. That’s not surprising, though, as the corners cut to achieve such a low price point are plain to see. While those looking for a powerful device to rival the iPad Pro should probably scroll back up to the S6 and S7 models, if you’re just looking for a simple tablet to browse the web, stream video, and catch up on some emails the Tab S6 Lite does so in style. 

    You’re still picking up a spacious 10.4-inch display, a strong battery life and grabbing S-Pen functionality (with a free pointer to go with it no less) which puts this model above the budget Tab A versions further down the page. What’s more you’re still picking that up for a great price, but don’t expect this device to replace your main work machine.

    Plus, Samsung’s tablet deals tend to hit this cheaper model particularly well, meaning you can save some serious cash when the sales do appear.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab A range

    (Image credit: Samsung)

    Samsung Galaxy Tab A8

    Solid performance at an affordable price

    Weight: 476g | Dimensions: 7mm x 169mm x 247 mm | OS: Android 11 | Screen size: 10. 5-inches | Resolution: 1920 x 1200 | CPU: Octa-core processor | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32-64GB | microSD slot: Yes, up to 1TB | Battery: 7,040mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 5MP

    Full HD wide display

    Long battery life

    Dolby Atmos support

    Affordable, but not the cheapest

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is an affordable tablet that still delivers solid performance thanks to the 3GB RAM and Octo-core processor. The latest device in Samsung’s range of budget tablets is light and portable, too. Meanwhile, the wide 10.5-inch display and Dolby Atmos surround sound support make it an ideal tablet for watching movies and TV shows. There’s an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera on the Tab A8, as well, while it boasts an impressive 13-hour battery life.

    It has a recommended price of $219/£219 for the standard WiFi version, but it can often be found for under $200/£200 at a number of retailers. That makes it around $50/£50 more expensive compared to similar-sized cheap tablets from Amazon and Lenovo, but the design and performance improvements are well worth the extra investment in our eyes.

    Samsung Galaxy tab deals are here to help you ring in the New Year! If you’re looking for high quality tablets, you needn’t stop with iPads. Check out Samsung’s impressive lineup of Galaxy Tab Android tablets. The Galaxy tablets are excellent entertainment devices and productivity tools, especially for Android smartphone users. If you’re hunting for best tablet deals that share apps with your Android phone, then you want a Galaxy Tab. The Tab line covers a nice range of prices to fit any budget, too, but to save you even more, we’ve rounded up the best cheap Samsung Galaxy Tab deals you can find online right now along with a run-down of the current models on the market today.

    • Galaxy Tab A7 Lite —
    • Galaxy Tab S6 Lite —
    • Galaxy Tab S8+ —
    • Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (128GB version) —
    • Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (256GB version) —

    Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite — $150, was $200

    Why Buy

    • Great value for the price
    • Light but sturdy
    • Handles the basics like a champ
    • One MicroSD card away from solid storage

    We start out with the A7 light, and for good reason: It’s a usable, cheaper-than-cheap cheap tablet that’s been made even cheaper. And the word ‘cheap’ here doesn’t even mean it is made bad, despite being under a pound it’s made of a sturdy metal that can take a small tap or two. While you shouldn’t come into a budget range laptop expecting some phenomenal extra features, is that even what you really wanted? When you can do your emails, surf the web, look at videos, and pop onto a voice call (i.e. the basics) do you really need the extra bells and whistles? If you’re that no frills and no luxuries kind of consumer, this is the deal for you to make sure you have all of your bases covered and with 4GB of RAM, you should legitimately be fine with it. The only disappointment for even basic browse-and-surf users is that it only starts out with 64GB storage, but you’re one good MircoSD card away from fixing that if you ever feel the need.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite — $270, was $350

    Why Buy

    • Comes with an S Pen stylus
    • Dolby Atmos sound
    • Cool connectivity features
    • Facial recognition security

    The S6 Lite is another tablet on the cheaper end, but it actually bring some fun tech to the mix without increasing your overall out-of-pocket expenses too much. For one, it is one of the cheapest ways to get ahold of the precise S Pen stylus, which is great for taking notes, doodling, or just avoiding that awkward feeling of fat fingering everything. You’ll also like the facial recognition for security that just keeps getting better and better each year. We’re also, by this point, starting to see Samsung’s take on interconnectivity. The S6 Lite can easily transfer what’s going on from it to your other Samsung devices, like your phone or TV, and keep the action going elsewhere. Plus, even at this price point, you’re able to see 64GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, so who can really complain? Finally, when talk about Dolby Atmos soundbars we always have to mention the great quality that surround sound with Dolby Atmos can provide. Well, if you act now, you can get a (much smaller) slice of that Dolby goodness with your new S6 Lite for an incredibly cheap price.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ — $820, was $900

    Adam Loud/Digital Trends

    Why Buy

    • A powerful machine in its own right
    • Lightning fast Wi-Fi 6E connectivity
    • Samsung DeX organization
    • Even more connectivity

    The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a fantastic machine that I fear will get overshadowed by the S8 Ultra below. But with it’s own Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, QHD resolution, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage the S8+ is already a powerful machine that doesn’t deserve to get overshadowed so much by other creations. It’s got the crazy powerful Wi-Fi 6E that, if your modem can handle it, can make download times more bearable than ever before. Then, when it comes time to start using the S8+, you’ll really want to take advantage of the Samsung DeX organizational powers that our reviewer rightfully likened to “Windowsifying” Android. You’ll get to arrange apps in different customizable boxes around your screen so you can multitask as you like it. Finally, there are more of those great Samsung interconnectivity features to be found, allowing you to share documents quickly!

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (128GB version) — $1,000, was $1,100

    Why Buy

    • The “king” of tablets
    • Large 14.6-inch screen
    • Brilliant resolution
    • Still comes with the S Pen

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is the obvious comparison to the 8+ above and what we like to call the “king” of tablets. Just like the S8+, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 8GB of RAM, and (for this version) 128GB of storage. The screen is also larger at 14.6-inches, with a 2960 x 1848 resolution. You’ll see similar small boosts in the S8 Ultra’s battery, which is somewhat more powerful, and the new 12MP ultrawide front cam to match that power. With all of this immense size, you may also be pleasantly surprised to see that it still comes with an S Pen when you might feel than getting to the size that a mouse could do better.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (256GB version) — $1,080, was $1,200

    Why Buy

    • Same as above, but with 12GB of RAM and double the storage.

    Hey, we’ve seen this picture before! It’s the exact same as the above, but with some slight modifications to the specs. Analyzing numbers can get boring, so let’s put it into perspective. The 12GB of RAM in this version of the S8 Ultra is the bare minimum to run Elden Ring. Yes, you heard it right, this tablet could theoretically run Elden Ring! Next we have the 256GB of storage, 128GB more than the other version. The new hit game, High on Life, from the creator of Rick and Morty requires 50GB. That means you could store it five times on this version of the device, compared to the mere two of the one above. Not that you’d want to do that or anything!

    Top Reviewed Tablets

    This section presents affordable multimedia solutions for everyday users. If you are interested in a device for a child, we recommend that you pay attention to our selection of tablets for children, which contains more relevant gadgets. We note right away that, as practice shows, budget inventions are risky for a child to buy. Do not forget about the software part, which is implemented extremely poorly in such devices. As a result, most of these gadgets after a while begin to slow down a lot, and the quality of the screen implementation in them leaves much to be desired. We have selected models with decent displays and parameters.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite

    Given the cost, we can say that this is one of the most productive budget smartphones. The representative of last year’s line received an 8.7-inch screen based on a TN matrix. At the same time, the gadget has a resolution of 1340 by 800 pixels. A pretty good solution for a child, given the strength and stylish design of the aluminum body. In addition, the device has a compact size and low weight – less than 380 grams. This model is suitable for surfing the net, simple heavy games and watching videos. The case houses a budget Helio P22T chip, paired with 4 gigabytes of RAM. The advantages include a capacious 5100 mAh battery, which is enough for 10-12 hours in intensive use.

    Pros:

    • good battery;
    • good performance;
    • rugged housing;
    • loyal value.

    Cons:

    • simple screen.

    Alcatel 3T 8

    Alcatel 3T with an 8-inch display and a large 4800 mAh battery adds to the list of good budget tablets. Unlike many alternative solutions of past generations, modern communications are implemented here, including Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, as well as Wi-Fi with support for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies. Among other things, support for fourth-generation networks is available. The amount of RAM is 2 gigabytes, the permanent memory in this configuration is 32 gigabytes. This is enough for simple solutions. The low power chip of the MediaTek MT8766B series with a frequency of up to 2 GHz is in charge for the performance. A relatively new device works on a fairly up-to-date Android 10.0 operating system.

    Pros:

    • up-to-date communications;
    • good display;
    • memory size;
    • MultiTouch support.

    Cons:

    • weak processor.

    Lenovo Tab M8 TB-8505F

    An excellent solution among all the variety of inexpensive but good tablets is the Lenovo Tab M8 model with a solid screen and a solid build. The manufacturer positions this gadget as a convenient tablet for the whole family with the ability to create a separate entry for each user. An HD screen with a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels with a good level of visibility and a rich picture is responsible for the quality of the picture. The case houses a 4-core MediaTek Helio processor paired with 2 gigabytes of RAM. It would be foolish to say that this is a productive tablet, but it justifies its cost. In addition, the model has a compact size, looks stylish.

    Pros:

    • appearance;
    • good display;
    • good sound;
    • quality assembly.

    Cons:

    • low power.

    Prestigio MultiPad Node A8

    This year, many users liked the 8-inch model of a good tablet of the Prestigio MultiPad Node A8 series with a GPS module. The sound quality definitely exceeds the parameters of the segment. Another advantage is a high-quality IPS-screen with FullHD-resolution. It is worth saying that this device supports 3G / 4G (LTE). At the same time, the manufacturer took care of a good level of computing power, despite the compact size. The proprietary processor and graphics core are enough for comfortable video viewing, although a 4-core chip with 1.3 GHz is hardly enough for games. Inside is a capacious memory card of 32 GB and RAM in the amount of 1 gigabyte. The battery capacity is 5000 mAh, but due to the bright screen, this is only enough for 5-7 hours of continuous operation.

    Pros:

    • 3 gigabytes of RAM;
    • good processor;
    • IPS panel;
    • compact dimensions;
    • excellent stereo speakers.

    Cons:

    • low power.

    Lenovo Tab M10 Plus

    The best budget tablet in 2023, in our opinion, is the 10-inch Lenovo Tab M10 Plus with MediaTek Helio P22T processor. Yes, this is far from the most powerful chip, but the excellent FHD display (1920 × 1200 pixels), which is built on an IPS matrix. The picture is definitely suitable for watching Netflix or YouTube services. In addition, the manufacturer has taken care of the availability of excellent Dolby Atmos sound. It will not be superfluous to note the simplicity of settings and the children’s mode, which provides for blocking access to the gadget. There is definitely enough memory for the content and settings of several users at once.

    Pros:

    • display quality;
    • simple settings;
    • certified parts;
    • memory size.

    Cons:

    • not found.

    The best 10-inch tablets

    It’s no secret that 10-inch models are the most popular. This is not surprising, because 7- and 8-inch devices do not look too remarkable against the background of modern flagship smartphones (phablets), in addition, smartphones with flexible screens have appeared. As for large tablets, their cost is most often unjustified. If you are interested in a practical premium solution, let me introduce you to interesting models with 10-inch screens.

    Apple iPad 2021

    In our ranking of tablets, there was a model from last year’s iPad with Face ID support. It should be noted right away that this model lacks GPS, but unlike its predecessor, the flagship A13 processor is used, the performance of which is beyond doubt. In addition, the novelty has found an enlarged screen up to 10.2 inches. The front camera has been upgraded to 8MP along with the Air 2’s 1.2MP. The list of upgrades doesn’t end there. The display supports a resolution of 2160 by 1620 pixels with DCI-P3 color space display. The screen supports True Tone mode (responsible for automatic white balance correction). It is worth adding that the internal memory of this flagship tablet can range from 64 to 256 gigabytes, which is enough to install many games.

    Pros:

    • 11 hours of battery life;
    • Bluetooth 5.0 support;
    • enlarged display;

    The Lenovo Tab P11 TB-J706L gaming solution deserves special attention in our top tablets. This model is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730G processor, which many experts call a simplified premium chip. In addition, 6 gigabytes of RAM are implemented in conjunction with the processor. This is enough not only for studying, but also for working with heavy graphics software and games. At the same time, customers can enjoy a great picture when watching their favorite content thanks to the use of a large 11.5-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels. This display is based on OLED technology. It will not be superfluous to note the support for the Android 10 series OS. The main camera has large sensors of 13 and 5 megapixels. The presence of a dual front camera of 8 megapixels is also pleasing.

    Pros:

    • not bad cameras;
    • have 4G/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 5.0;
    • decent processor;
    • OLED screen;
    • includes a stylus.

    Cons:

    • the IdeaPad Duet 3 line is more powerful.

    Realme Pad

    This is another top 10-inch tablet that attracts with a good price / quality ratio. The device has a thin body (only 6.9 millimeters) and a fresh version of the Android 11 series OS. It should be noted a good display, the resolution of which reaches 2000 by 1200 pixels. Inside is an advanced Helio G80 series chip, complemented by 4 gigabytes of RAM. The autonomy of the tablet deserves special attention, which is argued by a large 7100 mAh battery. Despite the affordable price tag, this Chinese gadget pleases with excellent sound with Dolby Atmos support, a good 8 megapixel camera and 18 W fast charging.

    Pros:

    • good equipment;
    • screen clarity;
    • memory size;
    • good sound;
    • battery life.

    Cons:

    • not found.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S6

    A definitely good 10-inch tablet was released two years earlier by Samsung. At the same time, the line of the Galaxy Tab S6 series, combining stylish design and powerful technical characteristics, has not lost its relevance to this day. The device received a high-quality case with small frames. The choice of buyers is available in several color variations, each of which looks elegant. An AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels is responsible for the chic picture quality. The display can recognize more than 4 thousand degrees of pressure, which indicates an excellent response. The flagship Snapdragon 855 processor is responsible for performance. A special DeX multi-window mode is provided. The main camera allows you to record 4K video. The module consists of two lenses, including 13 and 5 megapixels. The front camera received an 8-megapixel sensor.

    Pros:

    • excellent screen;
    • multi-window mode;
    • main chamber;
    • battery life;
    • powerful processor.

    Cons:

    • not found.

    Apple iPad Air

    The best 10.9-inch tablet of 2023 is last season’s Apple iPad Air. This line is already based on the Apple M1 processor, which compares favorably with the A14 Bionic. Of the features of the gadget, I would like to note the presence of the Apple Pencil (second generation), the presence of color temperature adaptation, the USB C interface and the fingerprint sensor located on the power button. It will not be superfluous to note the support of Wi-Fi 6 and a powerful camera with video support in 4K format. This is really a chic flagship that will not lose its relevance for a long time. The flagship has an advanced Magic Keyboard, attractive color temperature adaptation, which makes it very comfortable to read. Moreover, the tablet has a high peak brightness.

    Pros:

    • powerful processor;
    • 4K video recording;
    • front camera;
    • advanced keyboard;
    • includes a stylus.

    Cons:

    • high price.

      The best hybrid tablets they are really capable of replacing PCs and laptops in terms of content viewing, work and study. Such models will pull any mobile games without problems. The only negative is the huge price, which is argued by an extensive list of tasks assigned to such equipment.

      Microsoft Surface Go 2 Pentium

      Probably the most budget-friendly solution among hybrid tablets is the powerful Microsoft Surface Go 2 Pentium, running on the Windows 10 series in conjunction with Intel Pentium Gold or Core M3 computer processors. On the front is a chic 10.5-inch display. The resolution of the screen used is 1920 by 1080 pixels with an aspect ratio of 3:2. The amount of RAM and internal memory can vary from 4/64 GB to 8/128 GB, respectively. The battery life of this gadget can reach 10 hours.

      • operating system.

      Cons:

      • not powerful processors.

      Microsoft Surface Go 3

      Considering premium tablets, I would also like to mention Microsoft’s Surface Go 3 series. This series runs on Windows 11. At the same time, the new generation differs from the Surface Go 2 line with a more powerful processor. This device uses an Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y chip. Inside is a large battery with a capacity of up to 8000 mAh. It may seem at first glance that this is a big indicator, but do not forget that a powerful hardware base is implemented inside, and not some kind of mobile chip. The case is made of metal, but the tablet weighs about 500 grams.

      Pros:

      • fold-out stand;
      • latest OS;
      • infrared camera;
      • high power.

      Cons:

      • price at the start.

      Microsoft Surface Pro X

      Of course, many people believe that the company’s Windows-based tablets failed miserably, but this is not entirely true. The fact is that such devices have their own target audience, and we cannot help revealing the features and benefits. Yes, this is not the best gadget for users who are looking for a gaming device for entertainment, but for work it has no analogues. In addition, the device is distinguished by a high level of ease of use and a chic screen for viewing multimedia content. The Surface Pro X is yet another experiment, but a lucky one. The manufacturer managed to please fans with a thin, light branded tablet with an excellent screen, the brightness of which is 450 nits. For mobile versions, this is a very high figure. The SSD capacity is 512 GB, which is an indicator of a PC. The amount of RAM is from 8 to 16 gigabytes. There are two cameras with support for recording in 4K format.

      Pros:

      • memory size;
      • display quality;
      • high power;
      • data logging speed;
      • smart design.

      Cons:

      • high cost.

      Microsoft Surface Pro 8

      Another premium hybrid tablet with all the features to its credit. This is almost a laptop equipped with an Intel Core i3-1115G4 or Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, depending on the configuration. Windows 11 Home is preinstalled. We also note 8 gigabytes of RAM and support for two modern USB C 4.0 ports. Good autonomy is achieved through a 6200 mAh battery with 65 W fast charging. This is a very good indicator for tablets. The main camera boasts support for 4K video. A chic display deserves special attention, the refresh rate of which reaches 120 Hz.

      Pros:

      • baud rate;
      • several processors to choose from;
      • excellent autonomy;
      • 65W fast charger;

      Cons:

      • overpriced.

      Microsoft Surface Pro 7

      The best flagship tablet for 2023 is the Microsoft Surface Pro 7. This device is more like a small laptop than a mobile gadget. This is confirmed by performance, support for an SSD (solid state drive) and the Windows 10 operating system. The resolution of the 12.3-inch display is 2736 by 1824 pixels. The advantages of portable technology include the presence of a stylus, Wi-Fi 6 generation, as well as support for face authentication. For users who want to be sure of the safety of their data and require maximum conditions for comfortable operation of electronics, this device will be the ideal solution.

      Pros:

      • stylish design;
      • data protection;
      • good power;
      • chic screen.

      Cons:

      • high price.

      Best Budget Tablets

      Buying a cheap tablet is not an easy task, because you need to understand the differences in OS, processors, screens and other characteristics. So, for example, an inexpensive device with a modest chip and a budget screen matrix is ​​quite suitable for studying, but for drawing you need a model with a stylus, which will cost much more.

      Prestigio SmartKids Up

      The list of good tablets for studying is opened by the Prestigio SmartKids Up, designed specifically for kids: you can listen to fairy tales, use educational games, watch cartoons. The resolution of the 10.1-inch screen is 1280 by 800 pixels, which indicates good clarity. Responsible for the operating system is Android 10 based on the Go edition proprietary shell. The capacity of the used battery is 6000 mAh, which is quite enough for several days of battery life. Of course, there is the possibility of connecting to the Internet using the Wi-Fi module, fast data transfer is pleasing due to the support of the USB Type-C standard. The company’s engineers took care of the presence of a built-in stand, but it is not very convenient, judging by customer reviews. Responsible for performance is the Rockchip 3226 chip.

      Pros:

      • Wi-Fi module;
      • USB Type-C support;
      • compact dimensions;
      • is a good display.

      Cons:

      • stand quality.

      Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite

      If you are looking for a good tablet with a stylus for drawing, playing or studying, you should pay attention to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. This gadget replenishes our rating due to its excellent value for money. The simplified version runs on the proprietary Exynos 9 processor.611, which includes cores with a frequency of 1.7 to 2.3 GHz. The device is based on the operating system Android 10.0. Among the shortcomings, one can note the TFT-matrix of the screen, which is clearly inferior to IPS and, especially, OLED displays, but this explains the democratic price tag of the gadget. The panel size is 10.4 inches at a resolution of 2000 by 1200 pixels. The brightness is not the best, but the picture is very clear. The amount of RAM is 4 GB, and Flash-memory 64 GB.

      Pros:

      • screen resolution;
      • powerful processor;
      • excellent stylus;
      • area of ​​use.

      Cons:

      • TFT matrix.

      Alcatel TKEE Max

      The list of children’s tablets is replenished by the Alcatel TKEE Max line, which has a 10-inch screen and a fairly good MediaTek MT8167B processor with 4 cores of 1.28 GHz. Even with 2 gigabytes of RAM, there is enough power for simple children’s applications and games. The inexpensive device received a fairly bright IPS display with a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. The design includes front and main cameras of 2 megapixels. The battery capacity at the same time reaches 4080 mAh, which is the reason for the rather good autonomy of the tablet. The gadget weighs around 450 grams.

      Pros:

      • good brand;
      • two chambers;
      • appearance;
      • screen brightness.

      Cons:

      • modest parameters.

      HUAWEI MatePad T 10

      Among the variety of budget tablets, the HUAWEI MatePad T 10 model has been popular for a very long time. The success of this line is primarily due to the use of the proprietary Huawei Kirin 710A processor. This chip is built on a 12nm process technology based on 4 Cortex-A73 cores (frequency 2 GHz) and 4 Cortex-A53 cores (1.7 GHz). This performance is enough for modern games, not to mention educational applications. At the same time, young gamers can enjoy a high-quality picture thanks to the presence of 9.7-inch panel on an IPS-matrix with a screen resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. Bluetooth 5.0 and a Wi-Fi module are used as communications. The operating system is Android 10 with the Chinese shell EMUI. The main camera is 5 megapixels as a bonus. The 2MP selfie camera leaves much to be desired.

      Pros:

      • weight up to 500 grams;
      • large screen;
      • energy efficient chip;
      • good power;
      • display brightness.

      Cons:

      • front camera.

      Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+

      The best affordable stylus tablet of 2023 is Samsung’s premium Galaxy Tab S7 Plus powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865+ processor. The power of this chip will be enough for any games and applications in the near future. At the same time, the engineers of the Korean company took care of the presence of a 12.4-inch screen, which is based on Super AMOLED technology. The resolution of this display is 2800 by 1752 pixels. Of course, maintaining such an expensive panel requires a lot of energy. Of the interesting features, one can single out a special Samsung DeX mode, which involves using the tablet as a desktop PC. Actually, power allows.

      Pros:

      • large screen;
      • smooth picture;
      • brightness and color level;
      • powerful flagship processor;
      • area of ​​use.

      Cons:

      • high price.

      How to choose a good tablet?

      It should be said right away that we will consider the standards for buying classic tablets without Microsoft, which have become an exception to the rule, and this is due not only to the OS, but also to the technical component. Such models are rather designed for users who value comfort in work. If you don’t know how to choose a tablet for entertainment, you should pay attention to the following points:

      1. Display – screen size can vary from 7 to 13 inches. Optimal in the region of 8-10 with a resolution from HD to UltraHD. 4K format for tablets is not practiced yet, but soon we will see such flagships. As for the matrix, IPS and Amoled are definitely better than NT and TFT. The latter options differ in insignificant viewing angle and color reproduction.
      2. Processor – budget models have from 2 to 4 cores with a frequency of up to 2 GHz, paired with 2 GB of RAM. This performance is enough to perform simple tasks, view content. Premium tablets can be equipped with top mobile processors, up to the “dragon” 855 series, although there is already an 865, but there are no models equipped with this chip on sale yet. For Apple, the maximum is A12.
      3. Memory – the amount of RAM can vary from 2 to 6 gigabytes (no longer needed), and ROM, up to 256 GB. Hybrid solutions may have an SSD, but that’s closer to a PC than a tablet.
      4. Battery – This parameter is measured in milliamps per hour. But, battery life depends not only on battery capacity, but also on screen size and performance. Optimally up to 9-12 hours during operation. This one is measured
      5. Cameras – in fact, even flagship models are rarely able to cope with good photos and videos, although there are tablets that support 4K. But even expensive devices are inferior to smartphones in this regard, and this must be understood.

      What to consider when choosing a tablet for a child?

      From our rating, many readers have already made a conclusion regarding the best tablet manufacturers. Of course, this is Samsung and Lenovo, if you are interested in a model with a stylus. If you do not need it, but you are interested in the ideal solution, then you should pay attention to Apple products. In the budget segment, things are not so clear. Therefore, if you do not know how to choose a tablet for a child, then consider a number of parameters:

      1. Battery capacity – for entertainment you need good autonomy, as they are more assiduous on the Internet, as practice shows. Please note that if you have a good screen, the battery life of 5-6 thousand mAh can be 3-6 hours.
      2. Memory capacity – 8-16 gigabytes is enough for educational games and applications. For a large number of personal files, taking photos, you need from 32 gigabytes with the possibility of increasing the memory using a memory card.
      3. Display – here it is necessary to take into account the matrix (TFT is worse than IPS and OLED), resolution, dimensions, brightness and contrast levels. For drawing and good games, it is better to focus on more expensive technologies.

      Rating of manufacturers of tablets

      Previously, many mistakenly believed that tablets would soon cease to be in demand due to the allegedly rapid development of smartphones, but so far there is no intermediate link between PCs and phones. Moreover, portable technology is becoming more powerful and functional. There are already hybrid tablets, and we believe it is necessary to pay due attention to brands that are making a serious contribution to the development of this segment of electronics. To do this, we have prepared a conditional rating of the best tablet manufacturers:

      1. The best manufacturers of inexpensive tablets . Lenovo and Huawei are clear leaders in this category. The first brand offers a lot of models with a diagonal of up to 7 to 10 inches with 3 GB of RAM and a mobile chip at the level of medium-powerful smartphones. Lenovo equips its products with certified components, which guarantees a long service life. All models please with ease of setup, but many lines are equipped with outdated processors, which negatively affects power. In turn, Huawei uses its proprietary (actual) processors, which perfectly expand the capabilities of technology (there are for study, for games, etc. ).
      2. Top brands of premium tablets . In this category, the undisputed leader is Apple, whose products are distinguished by a high level of reliability, safety and value. Only in recent years, the South Korean company Samsung has been trying to compete with the company, which has managed to achieve serious success in the field of screen production.
      3. Top hybrid tablet companies. Unlike many other brands, Microsoft tablets are as close to laptops as possible. The brand creates devices for IT workers and creative people, so their devices already have computer processors with a very high level of performance and autonomy. The downside is that this manufacturer does not support the distribution of free software.

      What is the best tablet to buy in 2023?

      Thus, all tablets today can be conditionally divided into several categories: for games, for entertainment (watching multimedia, surfing the net) and work (hybrid solutions with a diagonal of more than 10 inches).

    The cost to buy the latest electronic gadgets can add up quickly, but Best Buy financing can make these products more accessible to shoppers who can’t pay for them upfront. Best Buy offers two co-branded Citibank credit cards and a leasing program, which could be good options if you frequently make purchases at this retailer.

    However, unless you frequently make large purchases at this retailer, you’re likely to find better financing options elsewhere. We’ll dig into what you need to know in this Best Buy financing review.

    Best Buy financing options

    Best Buy offers three in-house financing options for its customers: the My Best Buy® Credit Card, My Best Buy® Visa® Card and a leasing program. Both credit cards are issued by Citibank.

    • My Best Buy® Credit Card
    • My Best Buy® Visa® Card
    • Best Buy’s Progressive Leasing program

    *Interest rates accurate as of April 2023

    My Best Buy® Credit Card

    The My Best Buy® Credit Card can only be used at Best Buy, so it may not be a good option if you’d like to make purchases elsewhere. This credit card comes with an annual percentage rate (APR) of 30.99% variable, and this rate will fluctuate with the market. For example, in the last 30 days, purchase APRs have ranged from 28.99% to 30.99%.

    Qualified borrowers may receive promotional 0% APR financing on purchases over $299. If you pay off your purchase in full within 12 months, you won’t pay any interest. If the entire balance is not paid by the end of the promotional period, however, you’ll be responsible for all the deferred interest accrued since the purchase.

    Card users can also earn 10% cash back rewards when they use their My Best Buy® Credit Card for the first time, and 5% rewards on purchases after that. Since this card doesn’t have an annual fee, it could be a good option for making a single large purchase on the day you open the card — as long as you plan to pay off the balance before the promotional period is up.

    To get the My Best Buy® Credit Card, you’ll have to create a Best Buy account, submit an application and go through a hard credit inquiry.

    My Best Buy® Visa® Card

    Unlike the My Best Buy® Credit Card, the My Best Buy® Visa® Card can be used anywhere that Visa is accepted, including Best Buy.

    This card has an APR of 30.99% variable, and like the store card, you’ll be responsible for paying deferred interest if you can’t repay your balance within the promotional period. In addition to purchases, you can use this card for balance transfers or cash advances.

    The My Best Buy Visa comes with a variety of opportunities to earn rewards:

    • 5% back on Best Buy purchases
    • 3% back on gas purchases
    • 2% back on dining purchases
    • 2% back on grocery purchases
    • 1% back on other purchases

    To get a My Best Buy Visa card, you’ll have to fill out an application and submit to a credit inquiry, which could temporarily lower your credit score by a few points.

    Best Buy’s Progressive Leasing program

    If you can’t get approved for a credit card, you can apply for Best Buy’s Progressive Leasing agreement, though it is a very expensive way to borrow money. While Best Buy doesn’t disclose the exact APR that comes with this program, the estimated payment plans indicate very high, predatory APRs.

    For instance, if you want to purchase a $500 item from Best Buy, you live in Florida and get paid every other week, the cost to lease is a whopping $634 on top of the $500 price tag. This means that by the end of the 12 months, you’ll have paid a total of $1,134, which roughly translates to 187% APR.

    This 12-month lease-to-own program only runs a soft credit pull with the three major credit bureaus — Equifax, Experian and TransUnion — so your credit score won’t be impacted when you apply.

    Considering how high the APR can be, Best Buy’s lease-to-own program may not be a good option, unless you plan to pay it off right away. Progressive Leasing is not available in Minnesota, New Jersey, Vermont, Wisconsin, Wyoming or Puerto Rico.

    Who is Best Buy financing best for?

    Best Buy financing may be best for consumers who shop at this electronics retailer often and can take advantage of the 5% cash back perk. If you regularly spend a significant amount of money at Best Buy, the co-branded credit cards could be worth considering.

    However, none of the retailer’s in-house financing options are terribly competitive. Both credit cards have high APRs and deferred interest, which could stick you with a hefty interest payment if you can’t repay the balance in time. The Progressive Leasing program may be a good fit for shoppers with bad credit. However, since the APR can be so high, it may be better to consider alternative financing options that are more affordable.

    Unless you’re a die-hard Best Buy shopper, there are better financing options out there to cover your next big purchase.

    3 alternative financing options for your Best Buy purchase

    If you need to pay for your next smartphone or a home theater system, Best Buy financing may not be the best option. Here are three choices to consider:

    1. Personal loan
    2. Zero-interest credit card
    3. Buy now, pay later

    Personal loan

    A personal loan comes with fixed interest rates and predictable monthly payments. The funds are disbursed in a lump sum, so you’ll need to know how much you want to borrow when you apply.

    Many lenders allow you to prequalify for a personal loan, meaning you can check the rates, terms and minimum monthly payments you may be eligible for without any impact to your credit score. Rates may be as low as 5.99% if you have excellent credit, and you can repay the loan over a term of 60 months or longer.

    If you’re looking to purchase an item from Best Buy using a loan, you may want to consider lenders that offer small personal loans since they offer loan amounts that are more in line with the amount you’re likely to spend.

    Zero-interest credit card

    If you have good credit, you may qualify for a 0% APR intro credit card offer from a company other than Best Buy.

    These promotional offers allow you to carry a balance for a predetermined period of time (often six to 21 months) without paying interest. As long as you repay the balance in full before the introductory period ends, you won’t have to pay any interest. Once the promotional period is over, you’ll pay interest on any remaining balance.

    While a 0% APR card could save you a lot of money, be sure to check for other fees that may come with a credit card, such as annual and late fees.

    Buy now, pay later

    Buy now, pay later (BNPL) is a popular way for shoppers to pay for large purchases that they can’t afford outright. Most commonly, payments are split into four installments over six weeks, with a payment due every two weeks until the full amount is repaid. This type of BNPL financing often comes with no interest or fees.

    With Affirm, for example, customers can either break up their Best Buy purchase into four payments with 0% APR — known as Affirm Pay in 4 — or get an Affirm loan with an APR up to 36%. With the Affirm loan option, you may be subject to a credit inquiry.

    The Best Buy Financing Options

    The company is known for offering customers a range of different ways to pay for products. This allows customers to choose the option that they are most comfortable with and meets their budgets. Let’s take a closer look at the main financing options that the company offers. 

    Buy Now Pay Later

    This option is available through the company’s progressing leasing option and credit card options. The company offers its own special credit cards that offer zero interest rates for purchases over $99. To take advantage of this deal, customers have to pay the full amount for their products within six months.

    The company also offers customers a Progressive Leasing option. This allows customers to lease products and pay for them in installments. Customers only own the products once all the installments have been paid.  

    Flexible Financing

    The company offers flexible financing options through its visa card and credit card. When signing up for the company’s credit card, customers can determine the amount of interest they will pay. The interest rate is set according to the finance period and the value of the products.

    New customers are provided with a promotional financial term to make the credit card more attractive. If you can pay off the full purchase balance before the end of this term, you will not be charged interest. After the end of this term, you will be charged a set Annual Percentage Rate on the balance each month. 

    Plan Durations

    There are several different plan durations to choose from, depending on the value of the item you want to buy. If the value of the item is over $299, you can enjoy interest-free payment plans for 12 months. For appliance and Geek Squad purchases of over $599, you can receive an 18-month interest-free plan.  

    For exercise equipment and Geek Squad purchases of over $799, you can receive a 124-month interest-free plan. For home theater and Geek Squad purchases of over $999, you can receive a 24-month interest-free plan. 

    Make sure you pay in time!

    However, it is essential to make sure that you pay for the product in full within the stated period. If you fail to do this, you will be charged back interest from the date you purchased the product. If you are not approved for a credit card, you can join the Progressive Leasing plan. The duration of this option is up to twelve months. However, you will gain rewards if you pay in full within ninety days of purchase. 

    The Progressive Leasing Process

    This financing option is available through Citibank, and it is necessary to complete an application. The option is only available through one of the company’s stores and cannot be secured through the website. You need to ask for an application form and fill it out while you are in the store.

    It is important to try and get a decision from the underwriters when choosing this financing option. If it is not possible to get a decision instantly, you will need to check on your status. Fortunately, you can do this online by visiting the company’s website. 

    You have to be 18 years old…

    You need to be at least eighteen years old to apply for this financing option. Once your application form has been reviewed, it may be approved or rejected instantly. However, in other cases, you may have to wait between seven and ten days for Citibank to make a decision.

    Approval for this financing option is based on your income and employment status. This means that people who have a low credit score but regular employment can take advantage of it. However, the items that are eligible for purchase through this financing option may be limited. 

    Make your first purchase in-store…

    Once your application has been approved, you will be able to start shopping in stores and on the company’s website. It is best to make your first purchase in one of the company’s stores. A store employee will be able to guide you through the process of selecting your product and signing the lease. 

    Pros And Cons Of The Leasing Program

    Pros

    • Suitable for people who can’t get a credit card.
    • No credit check for approval.
    • 12-month lease-to-own agreement.

    Cons

    • Interest rates can vary.
    • Not all store and online products are included.
    • Interest rates can be high.

    Does Best Buy Have Payment Plans? – Your Credit Score 

    You usually need to have a credit score of between 700 and 749 to receive the company’s Visa card. However, you can receive a Best Buy Credit Card if you have a credit score of between 660 and 699.  

    If the idea of applying for a credit card gives you pause for thought, it is best to weigh up your options. It is important to make sure you are getting the best deal possible before completing the application process.

     Let’s take a look at the financing option to see if it is worth your while. 

    Pros

    • 1% back in rewards for each purchase.
    • 3% back in rewards on gas purchases.
    • Deferred interest financing.
    • Can be used for online purchases.

    Cons

    • The card can only be used to purchase company products.
    • Penalties for missing the financing deadline.
    • Can be difficult to keep track of spending.
    • Requires an application.

    Other Financing Options

    If you want to enjoy high-value products but don’t have the funds, there are three other options to choose from. These options are best suited to people who don’t want to be tied to the company with a contract. So, let’s take a look at these options to see whether or not they offer a good deal. 

    Personal loan

    This is an unsecured loan, which means that you don’t have to have collateral to apply for it. It is possible to secure a lower APR with a personal loan than you can enjoy with a credit card. The main catch is that you need to have a good credit score to enjoy a low-interest rate. 

    Depending on your credit score, you could secure a better deal than the company’s credit card provides. This is also a better option if you need a longer amount of time to pay off the loan. While the longest term offered by Best Buy is 24 months. Personal loans can last for several years if necessary.

    Do it without affecting your credit score…

    It is possible to prequalify with a personal loan lender without the process affecting your credit score. This allows you to view your estimated APR and compare it with the company’s financing options. Taking the time to look into this option could end up saving money in the long run.  

    Zero-interest credit card

    A number of banks offer rewards credit cards with 0% APR as a promotional offer. The offer period for this type of credit can run up to twenty months and can help make purchasing products easy. You simply need to make sure you repay your balance before the end of the promotional period.

    However, you will have to pay a high-interest rate if you are unable to repay the balance in time. This can be a bit of a gamble for people who have trouble managing their finances. It is also important to note that you need to have a high credit score to qualify for most rewards cards. 

    Paycheck advance

    This type of financing is ideal for people who have a steady job but a low credit rating. If you need to make a large purchase before your next paycheck arrives, it is worth talking to the HR Department. They could be willing to give you an advance on your next paycheck, so you can start shopping straight away.

    However, it is best to wait until you have been at the company for at least six months before asking for an advance. You also need to calculate the amount you need carefully. Make sure you will have enough left over to pay for your monthly bills and other essentials.

      How to choose a laptop for study in 2023 for students and pupils

      Technologies

      And don’t overpay for extra features

      Stas Zveryanov

      writes from an 11-inch laptop

      Author profile

      It is important for students and schoolchildren to choose a reliable and inexpensive laptop.

      There are no clear criteria for “training” models. Such devices are usually inexpensive and not very powerful – enough for basic tasks: working with texts, tables and presentations.

      In the article I will tell you what to look for in inexpensive laptops and what features you can skip. A study laptop will also come in handy for business tasks: work in Word, collect simple presentations, and keep a calendar.

      Checklist: how to choose a laptop for study

      In order for a laptop to last a long time and not break before a session, it is important to carefully choose.

      This is a short version of the guide – download it as a separate file or print it to refer to when you go to the store.

      Download the checklist

      What parameters are important for a study laptop

      Sometimes you don’t need to buy a laptop for study – a smartphone or tablet with a connected keyboard is enough. But they are not suitable for serious and permanent work, and you can write code or process photos only on PCs and laptops.

      Here’s what to look for before buying.

      Iron. The performance of any computer and laptop is most affected by the video card and processor. A video card is needed to create 3D graphics, video editing and pictures in games. The newer and more advanced the graphics card, the better graphics in games and faster video processing.

      The best laptops for work and more: 7 good options

      The processor is responsible for the speed and stability of the work in general: with its help, applications are launched and run, as well as the operating system itself. A powerful processor will make it easier to work with large tables and volumes of data, as well as games and 3D modeling programs.

      There is also RAM – it determines how many programs and tabs in the browser can be open at the same time. In addition to it, the storage also affects performance. From the hard disk, or HDD, the system and programs will start slower. Solid state drives, or SSDs, will allow you to open programs faster and turn on the device in a few seconds.

      Ergonomics. A touchscreen, ultra-light body and tactile keyboard are optional in a student notebook. Just make sure that it fits in a backpack, the screen is a comfortable size, and the touchpad responds correctly to pressing.

      Autonomy. Most laptops with active use hold a charge for four to five hours. Over time, the battery wears out, and you will need to charge your laptop more often.

      Operating system. Most likely, Windows will be installed on the laptop. It is flexibly configured, many devices are produced with it, and you can install it on any laptop.

      Alternative laptop with DOS. This is a computer without an operating system, which is sold at a lower price. After purchase, you can install any version of Windows or even Linux to your taste on it, you only need a USB flash drive with installation files.

      Price. For studying at school and in most university specialties, a laptop priced up to 55,000 R is enough. Everything that is more expensive is either excessively powerful or has design frills that you can save on. You can also pick up a laptop for less money: there are models cheaper than 25,000 R, but using them may not be very comfortable.

      “The eyes don’t get tired”: how I chose a laptop for a student up to 50,000 R

      Connectors, interfaces, important little things. A laptop is an all-in-one device, so there are many details to consider when buying:

      1. Standard USB-A is useful for flash drives and simple peripherals like mice, keyboards and printers.
      2. USB-C comes in various types, but is commonly used for charging, connecting advanced monitors, and fast external drives.
      3. 3.5 mm jack – headphone and microphone output.
      4. HDMI port for connecting an external monitor. The alternative is rarely found – mini DisplayPort, it is better, but not so convenient.
      5. VGA – Many schools still have projectors with an obsolete blue pin connector. But good laptops with it are not released in 2023, so it’s better to just buy an adapter.
      6. Wi-Fi module is built into all modern laptops, but there are different standards. The optimal one is called 802.11ac, aka Wi-Fi 5. If 802.11n or another with one letter at the end is specified, then the Internet will be slow, these are old standards. Sometimes you come across 802.11ax or Wi-Fi 6 – fast and modern, but not particularly helpful in studies.
      7. LAN RJ-45 – connector for wired internet. The thing is useful, but for educational tasks it is no longer very necessary.
      8. Bluetooth module – found in almost every laptop, allows you to connect wireless headphones and mice. There are different standards, it is better to take models of version 5.0 or newer, there is no particular difference.
      9. An integrated camera is a standard feature on a modern laptop, but image quality varies greatly depending on the model and price of the device. For distance learning and video calls, 1280 × 720 or 720p is enough. It’s not worth chasing a clearer 1080p.

      Please note that all USB ports are different: the usual ones differ only in the data transfer speed, and USB-C also has additional functions such as the ability to charge or output images to an external monitor. Before buying, look for reviews or reviews on a specific model – they often write in detail about this.

      USB 3.0 and 3.2 Gen 1 blue connector. Through it, files from a flash drive and back will be transferred 10 times faster than through a regular USB 2.0. Through even more advanced ports like 3.2 Gen 2, USB 4 or Thunderbolt 3, it’s even 2-4 times faster, but for a school it’s not worth overpaying for instant transfer of huge files. In practice, the speed also depends on the flash drive itself or an external hard drive.

      What kind of screen a laptop should have for study

      We look at the screen all the time, so it is important that it be a comfortable size and quality so as not to irritate and not reduce productivity. You need to choose it immediately according to several parameters.

      Diagonal . The screen size determines whether the laptop will fit in a backpack and whether it will be convenient to work on it without connecting an external monitor.

      The optimal diagonal for a study laptop is 13-15.6 inches. Models with a smaller diagonal are more convenient to carry around, but deploying two windows without discomfort will no longer work. Models with a larger diagonal will suit gamers or those who need to work with tables, but carrying them around all the time will not be easy.

      How to choose a laptop for gaming, internet or work

      Here are the tasks that different diagonals are suitable for:

      1. Less than 13 inches. On such a laptop it is convenient to write small texts, work with graphics and use a browser. Such a diagonal is not suitable for processing photos and games.
      2. 13″ – 15.6″ one size fits all. Laptops with such screens fit into standard backpacks and allow you to work with tables and graphics. On the keyboard of such laptops, there are sometimes separate number blocks, or numpads – they are useful if you need to type a lot of numbers at school.
      3. 16″ are the same 15.6″ models but with thinner bezels.
      4. 17.3″ screens suitable for stationary work. They weigh a lot, but the screen is enough for both games and work with tables. You can not connect a monitor to such laptops, and there is almost always a number pad on the keyboard.

      The screen size also affects the price – it is almost impossible to find a good laptop with a 17-inch screen within 55,000 R. But you can try.

      Matrix. The most important parameter when choosing a screen. It determines how high quality the image will be, how well it will be visible in the sun, and how the screen will transmit colors.

      There are four options for different budgets:

      1. TN. Cheap matrices with a faded picture. They are suitable for games due to their short response time, but it will be inconvenient to work and study with them. The point is the low brightness and contrast of the picture. Also, TN-matrices are the worst at transmitting colors.
      2. IPS. The best choice is that such screens have everything in order with colors, and you can look at the monitor from a large angle if you want to work from bed. They cost more than analogues with TN and VA matrices, but it makes sense to overpay for a good screen.
      3. VA. A matrix with a contrasting and saturated picture, suffering from color reproduction comparable to TN. They cost a little less than IPS.
      4. OLED. The most expensive and high-quality matrix. It is distinguished by especially natural black color, OLED screens give the best picture in darkened rooms. This matrix is ​​brighter, sharper and more energy efficient than others, but it also costs more — laptops with it are rarely cheaper than 70,000 rubles. This one costs 85,000 R. Source: dns-shop.ru

        Update rate and response time. If you are going to use a laptop not only for studying, but also for games, pay attention to the screen refresh rate and response time. They determine how smoothly objects move on the screen.

        For studying, it is important that the screen refresh rate is no lower than 60 hertz, and the response time is no more than 16 milliseconds. For documents, presentations, and spreadsheets, no more performance is required.

        Permission. Screen resolution must be at least Full HD, i.e. 1920 × 1080 pixels so that the image is not grainy or annoying. There are models with a resolution of QHD 2560 × 1440 and even 4K, but they only make sense for professional photographers. For texts, communication and the browser, you should not overpay for high definition.

        Needed and unnecessary features. High-end laptop manufacturers are improving the screen experience with various advanced technologies. But in a budget laptop for study, they are not particularly needed, and it is most often not worth overpaying for them.

        The best laptops for work from new Chinese brands under Rs. If 400 nits or more is declared, the colors will be more saturated, the screen will not “blind” in bright sunlight.

      5. HDR is a technology to enhance the brightness and contrast of images in movies, TV shows and games. For study or work, it is useless – if you do not work with graphic content.
      6. Screen finish – glossy, matte and anti-reflective. Glossy screens catch the glare from light bulbs, but produce richer colors. Matte ones glare less, but not as clear. A glossy screen with an anti-reflective layer is best, but this option is found only in expensive models.
      7. Flicker-free – Reduces high-frequency backlight flicker to reduce eye fatigue. A very useful option in any gadget.
      8. The touch screen is a nice addition that you quickly get used to. But there is no need to pay extra for it.

      What processor should a laptop have for study

      How does the processor work. It is responsible for the speed of the computer: how quickly the system starts up, opens files and programs, performs calculations in Excel, and how many simultaneous windows and tabs in the browser the computer can support without slowing down.

      Processors consist of computational cores that operate at a certain clock frequency. The more cores and the higher their frequency, the more powerful the chip – and the more it consumes energy and heats up more. Therefore, a powerful laptop will always be thicker, heavier and louder with fans, and a thin and quiet model will not match it in speed, but will win in terms of battery life. When buying, it is important to determine priorities in advance.

      How to choose an external battery for your smartphone, tablet and laptop

      How to choose a processor. Stores sell devices with dozens of different processors. One model can have many versions with chips of different brands, different capacities, and even different years of manufacture.

      Processor names consist of combinations of letters and numbers:

      1. Brand name – Intel or AMD. There are only two of them on Windows, and there is no clear leader among them.
      2. Series name – Core, Atom, Pentium, Ryzen. Most budget lines are not very good, so you should focus on Intel Core and AMD Ryzen when choosing.
      3. Processor series – Core i5, Ryzen 7. AMD and Intel have the same logic: the number 3 marks the entry-level chips, 5 – the average, and 7 and 9 – the top ones.
      4. Generation – i7 13xxxx, Ryzen 7xxxx. The higher the first number in the model index, the newer the chip. In 2023, Intel chips of the 12th and 13th generation are relevant, while AMD has 5, 6 and 7.
      5. Model – i7 xx750x, Ryzen 3 x400x. The larger the number, the more powerful the chip, but you should pay attention to this part of the name last.
      6. Suffix – the letter at the end indicates the purpose of the chip, this parameter should be looked at first. Among common chips, models with the letter H or P are more powerful, while those with the letters U, Y, C, and G are weaker, but consume less battery power.

      The easiest way to compare processors is by generation: the higher the number, the newer and better the processor. If you delve into the characteristics, you can draw wrong conclusions, because there are a lot of nuances. In any unclear situation, you can check with test aggregators like this one. It is enough to copy the names from the description in the store and look at the charts for various parameters.

      The best processors. Below is a list of the best laptop processors for school and work in 2023. These are not the most powerful chips, but they are more than enough for performance in the browser, instant messengers and office programs. Here are some popular choices:

      • Intel Core i3 1115G4;
      • Intel Core i5 1135G7;
      • Intel Core i3 1215U;
      • Intel Core i5 1235U;
      • AMD Ryzen 3500U;

      What video card should a laptop have for studying

      How does a video card work. A video card or graphics processor is a separate microchip in a computer that is responsible for rendering graphics. Without it, the computer will not be able to display a picture on the screen and display the operating system, and the most powerful models allow you to develop and run modern games with realistic graphics, create special effects for Hollywood films.

      Video cards can be built-in or discrete.

      Integrated is located inside the main processor and is inseparable from it. The newer and more expensive the processor, the more powerful the integrated graphics card. Not very fast, but saves battery power.

      Most processors released after 2020 have built-in powerful graphics cards. They will not replace a gaming PC, but they will be able to run “light” games like Dota 2, World of Tanks or old single hits like Doom (2016) and GTA V.

      20 addictive games for low-end computers and laptops

      All of the above processors can do without an additional discrete graphics card. Such laptops are quite suitable for calls, texts, watching movies, photo retouching, light video editing and rare running of undemanding games.

      The discrete graphics card is a separate chip that works in tandem with the processor. This option is usually much more powerful than integrated graphics, but consumes more power and gets very hot. Laptops with a powerful discrete graphics card are more expensive, larger, heavier, and drain faster, but they are more suitable for gaming and creative tasks.

      Three companies make individual graphics cards: Nvidia, AMD, and Intel. Chips from Nvidia have proven themselves best – they work the most stable. They also have many additional features such as the NVENC codec, which facilitates video editing and live streaming during video calls.

      Nvidia RTX video cards now improve video quality using neural networks

      Below we have collected several successful video cards that are found in inexpensive laptops – they will allow you to do amateur video editing and sometimes play. If a model is not in the list, then it is either outdated or not sufficiently different from the built-in options in terms of performance, so you should not overpay for it.

      What kind of memory a laptop should have for studying

      There are two types of memory in a laptop: operational and permanent. The first one is responsible for supporting parallel processes and the speed of working with large files, while the OS, all programs and files are stored in the permanent one.

      RAM . The minimum allowable amount of memory for comfortable work in 2023 is 8 GB. The most budget models are found with a margin of 4-8 GB, but in 2023 this is not enough for Windows and applications. The more gigabytes, the more programs at the same time the device can keep in memory without slowdowns.

      There are different types of memory: DDR4, LPDDR4, DDR5 and others. They differ in speed, but for an entry-level laptop you should not worry about it: this is critical only for professional creative applications and games.

      But it is better to pay attention to the layout of the memory. Some laptops have RAM chips soldered directly onto the motherboard, so it will not be possible to replace it in the future. It is better to buy an inexpensive laptop with removable RAM – then in the future it will be possible to expand the stock from 8 to 16 GB to increase performance.

      Permanent memory, or mass storage. The operating system, all programs and files are installed on it. The first thing that is important to know about a drive when choosing a laptop is its type.

      There are three types:

      1. HDD is a slow mechanical hard disk. It can break or fail from shaking, makes a noticeable noise and works quite slowly. Windows boots from the HDD in a few minutes, and large applications install and start with a noticeable delay.
      2. SSDs are modern solid state drives. The slowest SSD is 5 times faster than a regular HDD, and advanced models are more than 50 times faster. With an SSD, Windows fully boots up in less than a minute, and programs launch instantly.
      3. eMMC is an option for the cheapest laptops. A small and slow solid-state memory chip soldered to a laptop circuit board. Works faster than HDD, but inferior to SSD in all respects.

      So, when choosing a laptop, we immediately dismiss options without an SSD – this is not a luxury for a long time, and a small savings is not worth wasting time waiting for empty downloads and getting angry at the brakes. But you can ignore the speed of a particular SSD: the difference between them is almost imperceptible for “educational” tasks, when you do not need to copy and archive thousands of photos or giant video files.

      Unlike RAM, any SSD can be replaced. But these drives come in two types, which differ in speed and connection method:

      1. SATA – the slowest type of SSD, identical in size and shape to HDDs. They are easy to replace on your own, besides, large-volume models are relatively inexpensive.
      2. M.2 or NVMe is a slot on the motherboard where a small chip board is inserted. Such an SSD is much faster and takes up less space in the case. But the slot can sometimes be in a hard-to-reach place inside the case, and NVMe drives themselves are one and a half to two times more expensive than SATA models with equal volume.

      The best SSDs: 5 successful models for PC, laptop and game consoles PC, tablet or game console.

      Notebooks for study can be divided into four price categories:

      1. Up to 20,000 R. A primitive typewriter for those who need to save as much as possible. It’s not worth taking such cheap models for a long time: they save on everything, so the computer will most likely work slowly, discharge quickly and creak. In this case, an Android tablet for the same price will be both faster and more autonomous.
      2. 20 000-35 000 R. In this price category – the best entry-level models. On them, you can easily use a browser with a bunch of tabs, fill in large tables and try your hand at easy editing.
      3. Rs. From such models, you can expect a decent design, a good battery and enough power to run online games. Look for examples of such devices in our technical selection of laptops for work.
      4. More expensive than 55 000 R. Powerful devices of high and premium level. Here you can already come across gaming models, and stylish metal business laptops with cool screens, and even current MacBooks in minimal trim levels.

      Sales in online stores or buying used models on Avito will help you save money. For example, this is almost the only way to buy a MacBook on a limited budget – in this article we did not even consider Apple computers, as these are premium devices. We have a whole selection of current Macbook models in the secondary market.

      Be careful: older laptops may be significantly weaker than similar models from 2021-2023. Therefore, the difference in price may be less than the gap in performance and component quality.

      This is especially true for the quality of screens, the amount of RAM and the type of drives: now even inexpensive laptops are almost always equipped with a fast SSD drive and a normal display, but until 2020 this was considered more of a luxury.

      • Conclusion

      While desktop remains the best choice for PC gamers, sometimes we need something more portable. A gaming laptop is the perfect option to take with you and play powerful games at the same time.

      When buying a gaming laptop, you need to pay attention not only to the characteristics, but to all components, including the keyboard and display. In this article, we’ll explain all the decisions you’ll have to make when buying a gaming laptop so you can choose the best one for your needs and budget.

      Most games are graphics card dependent. Therefore, choosing a graphics card is the most important decision when buying a gaming laptop. Most models currently ship with NVIDIA GeForce GTX or RTX graphics cards.

      NVIDIA’s latest mobile graphics cards are the RTX 30 series, from RTX 3050 to RTX 3080 Ti. AMD has the Radeon 6000M series, which includes the RX 6300M ​​for budget laptops, the RX 6700M and RX 6800M for mid-range laptops, and the top-end RX 6850M XT for flagship models. In January, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000 and AMD Radeon 7000 series were announced, probably laptops with these video cards will appear on the shelves in the spring and summer.

      For entry-level games, you can choose the GeForce RTX 3050. It will give you the opportunity to play top AAA games at medium settings or eSports games like CS:GO, Overwatch, Fortnite, Apex Legends at ultra settings. Its performance is not enough for ray tracing, but you can use DLSS technology and get a power boost. The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti 4 GB differs from it in the number of cores – it has a quarter more of them, which gives it a performance increase of 10%.

      High settings require RTX 3060 or higher to play. It is 50-60% faster than the RTX 3050 Ti and will allow you to play most games at high settings, of course in Full HD resolution. The next is the RTX 3070 – it is 25-30% more powerful, you can confidently play all games at ultra settings in Full HD and medium-high settings at a resolution of 2560×1440 (2K). There is an older model – RTX 3070 Ti, it gives out about 10% more FPS, consolidating the success. The AMD Radeon RX 6700M graphics card is about 10% weaker than the RTX 3070.

      RTX 3080 and 3080 Ti graphics cards (5-10% more powerful) are available for playing in 2K and 4K resolutions . With them, you can play on ultra settings in 2K resolution and on medium-high settings in 3840×2160 (4K). New items – RTX 4080 and 4090 will allow, when they appear on the shelves, to play 4K already at ultra settings.

      Since games are more affected by the graphics card than the processor, in most games you will be enough with Intel Core i5 / AMD Ryzen 5. If your budget allows, then you can take a laptop with Intel Core i7 / AMD Ryzen 7 – in games, they will not add anything to you, but they will cope with computational tasks faster, for example, in engineering programs. At the moment, the current processor series are Intel 12th generation and AMD 6000.

      Intel Core i5-12500H and AMD Ryzen 5 6600H – mainly shipped with laptops with RTX 3050 to RTX 3060 graphics cards. video cards from RTX 3050 to RTX 3070 Ti. The model from Intel performs about 15% better in games and 20-25% better in work tasks.

      The flagship Intel Core i9-12900H and AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processors are bundled with the same flagship RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards. And here the model from Intel is 10% better.

      New games require more and more RAM. 8 GB of memory will not be enough for all games, so you should choose a laptop with 16 GB of RAM, this amount is enough for gaming. Picking up a laptop with 32GB or more of RAM is a must if you’re into graphics/video processing or want to have headroom for future games that might be more demanding.

      If your budget is currently limited and you feel that you will have to buy a laptop with 8 GB of RAM, then do not worry, you can increase the amount of RAM yourself by purchasing the desired memory module and installing it next to the existing one. This procedure does not take much time and comes down to selecting the right memory module and removing the back cover of the laptop to connect the RAM, which is devoted to many articles on the Internet.

      Recently, gaming laptops have stopped installing hard drives and now you can see that almost all models have only SSD drives installed. They operate at speeds much faster than a conventional hard disk drive (HDD). The minimum amount is 512 GB, ideally have 1024 GB and above. The larger the volume, the more games and programs you can install on it, so it all depends on your budget. If you wish, you can upgrade your laptop in the future – add 1 more SSD drive or change the current one.

      The display is also important when choosing a laptop, because it is on it that your eyes will be looking all the time. Most gaming laptops range in size from 15.6 to 17.3 inches. Screen resolution varies from 1920×1080 (FHD) to 2560×1440 (QHD) and 3840×2160 (4K). The higher the screen resolution, the more powerful the video card in it should be. As a rule, the laptop manufacturer has already taken care of this moment and created a configuration for the video card and display to match.

      Most gamers want Full HD or 2K resolution . Taking a laptop in 4K resolution is only complete with a powerful RTX 4080 / RTX 4090 graphics card, in general, 4K resolution capabilities are poorly realized due to the small size of the display. You will hardly notice the difference between 2K and 4K.

      Most laptops used to have a 60Hz refresh rate. But now, many come with a frequency of at 120 Hz and higher (144/240/360 Hz) and we recommend these. The image in this case will be smoother.

      There are two types of display matrices: TN and IPS , the latter type has better viewing angles and a more pleasant image, it is placed in most gaming laptops. If you stumble upon a laptop with a TN matrix, we advise you to bypass it.

      The display finish is also different: available matt or glossy . The glossy finish has better color rendering and richer colors, but reflects and glare are more noticeable when working on it and is more suitable for designers.

    Pairing is caring.

    Family Setup lets you pair watches for your children and older family members to your iPhone. Everyone gets their own phone number, and you can manage each watch using the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

    A great call

    for kids.

    With Family Setup, kids get to experience many of the capabilities of Apple Watch. They can stay in touch with the people you approve, by calling and texting. And have fun streaming music, downloading apps, and paying for stuff with Apple Cash Family. You can also schedule Schooltime to limit Apple Watch features when they need to focus. Even the Activity rings have been rethought to better reflect how they exercise — tracking Move minutes instead of active calories. And with location sharing, you’ll get alerts when kids get home or aren’t where they’re expected to be.

    A smart call for

    older adults.

    Apple Watch can open up a whole new world for older family members. They get the same connectivity benefits of Apple Watch, like calling, texting, and location sharing to stay close to the family. And if they need it, they can make the text larger or bolded.

    Safety features.

    Apple Watch comes with important safety features like fall detection which can detect if your loved ones have taken a hard fall. If it senses they’re immobile, Emergency SOS will connect them with emergency services — even if they haven’t signed up for a cellular plan. They can also get help in an emergency — all over the world by simply pressing and holding the side button.

    Health features.

    Apple Watch can alert family members if it detects unusually high or low heart rates, as well as measure their current heart rate. And all the Activity goals, including Stand hours and Exercise minutes, can be customized to a level that works for older family members.

    Does the Apple Watch support 3 eSIM?

    Apple’s third series features a sleek design and a full range of modern technologies. The built-in communication module is just one of the features, but it deserves special attention. With the help of such an addition to the base platform, the subscriber has the opportunity to turn a smart watch into a full-fledged communication device that can replace a smartphone in some aspects.

    The main distinguishing feature of eSIM is that it does not require a physical medium to connect. The built-in module is able to be automatically encoded according to the requirements of the operator, and for connection it is not necessary to insert a SIM card into the device itself. The eSIM technology in the Apple Watch 3 kept the stylish shape of the watch, but expanded the user experience.

    How do I connect and set up an eSIM on my Apple Watch Series 3?

    To activate an eSIM on your Apple Watch 3, follow a few simple steps:

    1. Open the Apple Watch app on your paired smartphone;
    2. In the menu, find the item “My watch” and “Cellular data”;
    3. Click Set up Cellular Data to add a new plan;
    4. Scan the QR code received from the operator.

    If you’ve followed all the instructions, the Apple Watch Series 3 eSIM plan will automatically appear in the list of available ones. Now you can set up the connection and set the tariff that will be used by default.

    In total, the watch supports up to five tariff plans, so you decide how you will use the purchased services. It may seem that such a number of tariff plans is useless, but in fact, the ability to choose between different data packages will help you stay connected in any situation. For example, the network of one operator has limitations and does not work in some areas of cities.

    Surface Studio 2 review | Creative Bloq

    TODAY’S BEST DEALS

    This is a hands on review of the Surface Studio 2 to give you the chance to see what the new all-in-one desktop is all about as soon as possible. We’ll be expanding and upgrading this review shortly with more information and a score.

    The all-new Surface Studio 2 has finally arrived, and early impressions are good, to say the least. The team at Microsoft have pulled out all the stops for the shiny new version of their all-in-one desktop PC, focusing in particular on digital media artists. 

    A robust digital drafting table with all the capabilities of a regular desktop PC, this machine will undoubtedly be desirable to artists and designers. But it’s by no means cheap, so before you go breaking into your piggy bank, let’s go under the hood in a little more detail. 

    • Microsoft Surface Studio 2 (1TB 32GB RAM) at Microsoft UK IE for £4,699

    Surface Studio 2: Price and availability

    The Surface Studio 2 is now readily available all over the globe, with prices starting in at $3,499 in the US and £3,549 in the UK. This will get you a 7th-generation, Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of DDR4 memory and a 1TB NVMe SSD. So, like we said, it’s not cheap, but is still significantly cheaper than an entry-level iMac Pro, which will set you back $4,999/£4,899. Having said that, the two aren’t really comparable, being that the iMac can’t be used as a graphics tablet.  

    Surface Studio 2: Display and drawing experience

    With the incredibly pin-sharp 28-inch 4500x 300 resolution PixelSense touch screen responding to every deft stroke, chunky daub or precise click, the Studio 2 opens up a new world of creative opportunity. The thin display of the Surface Studio 2, along with lack of parallax and lag, puts you closer to the pixels than ever before, making for a much more authentic experience. 

    The Surface Pen experience has also seen an improvement, with pixels and the stylus tip really converging into one, without parallax or lag, even when using sweeping quick strokes. If there was a disconnect in this department, it would be very hard to look past, so it’s great that this element of the creative process lives up to the other design features. However, an increase in pressure sensitivity and a way of charging the Surface Pen up on the side of screen would be welcome additions.

    The super-thin display of the Surface Studio 2 puts you closer to the pixels than ever before. Image credit: Techradar

    Couple the stylus experience with the still magical ‘gravity hinge’ on the Studio 2, which allows you to effortlessly lower the screen to a 20-degree angle, but still supports you as you lean across a drawing, and you’ve got a unique digital creative experience. 

    Though huge in size, the screen moves very easily around a table, just like moving paper on a desk, and yet doesn’t feel like it could slip or be pushed away accidentally when in use. Whatever angle you choose to work at, the screen has enough resistance to comfortably work on – again without fear of untimely slips or lowering. Knowing you can lean across the screen when it’s fully lowered without fear of rogue touches or breaking the display makes for a very involving and natural experience.

    Surface Studio 2: Features

    The ability to switch instantly between colour profiles from sRGB to vivid and DCI-P3 modes is a massive help. Knowing that what you see on screen in sRGB is what will be printed provides a lot of confidence when setting palettes out correctly. Knowing that DCI-P3 is there too means if you ever want to develop more into film-making and editing for a YouTube channel, for example, then you’re covered on that front, too.

    The bump in power on the new Surface Studio 2 means you can be confident it can handle whatever you throw at it too. And in terms of design, aesthetically, it is still one of the most beautiful machines on the market. 

    Despite all the positives, there are areas for improvement that hopefully we’ll see with the next iteration of the Studio. Other stylus companies have pushed the sensitivity levels of their pens to over 8,000 levels, which is around double that of the Surface Pen. For most users this wouldn’t be too noticeable, but if your job day-in-day out is drawing, these subtle delicate levels do become apparent. 

    Also, the lack of recharging of the stylus is a bit of a let-down, and will bother some more than others. The AAAA batteries are cheap and easily found online, but if you draw a lot, you’ll find they don’t last as long as you’d like, and so the option to magnetically charge the pen on the side of the screen, like other companies offer, would be great. The Surface Pen is lovely to use and accurate, but hopefully a new version is on the horizon with the next iteration.

    Another issue is the lack of options to upgrade the hardware, which may be a concern if you are truly at the bleeding edge of graphics, 4K rendering or just into that kind of tinkering. It would also be great to have the option of using the display as a separate monitor – just in case the computer element of the machine breaks in some unrepairable way. Having such a beautiful screen become redundant in years to come because of hardware issues would be a huge shame, so this could be addressed too. 

    Surface Studio 2: Early verdict

    For freelance digital artists working from home, the last thing you want is multiple machines replicating what, in essence, should be a natural drawing experience akin to painting on a canvas or doodling on paper. The Surface Studio 2 allows artists and designers to streamline their creative process into one machine that can happily produce complex graphics and paintings just as comfortably as it can office admin and Netflix marathons in 4K resolution.  

    As an all-in-one drafting table, creative centre and home PC, the Surface Studio 2 ticks all the boxes for both studio or home-based artists and designers. For digital creatives, it is one workstation that’s going to be hard to beat.

    Two-minute review

    Spec sheet

    Here is the Mac Studio configuration sent to TechRadar for review:

    CPU: Apple M1 Ultra (20-core)
    Graphics: Integrated 64-core GPU
    RAM: 128GB Unified SDRAM
    Storage: 2TB PCIe SSD
    Ports: 6x Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C), 2x USB-A, HDMI, 10Gb Ethernet, 3.5mm headphone jack, SDXC card slot
    Connectivity: Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5
    Weight: 7.9 pounds (3.6kg)
    Size: 3.7 x 7.7 x 7.7-inches (9.5 x 19.7 x 19.7 cm)

    When Apple revealed the Mac Studio at its March Event, most folks were taken by surprise. There had been rumors about a new MacBook Air, and possibly a new M2 chip, but no one expected an entirely new Mac.

    But that’s exactly what we got. After years of feeling like Apple lost interest in its Mac devices, preferring to lavish attention on its iPhones and iPads, the company seems to have fallen back in love with computers. Apple Macs are now some of the most exciting devices the company is currently producing, and the new Apple Studio Display is a welcome part of the family. 

    A huge part of this is the M1 chip. In 2020, Apple ditched Intel and released a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac mini all powered by its own M1 hardware. It was a huge success, offering excellent performance and power efficiency, and in late 2021, Apple expanded on the silicon with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, which offered drastically more performance, and launched alongside the MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) and MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021).

    The Mac Studio, being a desktop PC aimed at professional creatives, comes with a choice of the M1 Max or the brand-new M1 Ultra – which is essentially two M1 Max chips connected via a low-latency interface. This doubles the amount of unified memory, as well as the number of CPU and GPU cores, and in some cases offers almost twice the performance of the M1 Max. 

    The M1 Ultra-equipped Mac Studio, then, is for people who need a PC to hande heavy-duty workloads, such as rendering complex 3D scenes and animations or quickly compiling and testing code across numerous virtualized devices (to check how a game works on various generations of smartphones, for example). While not quite the most powerful Mac Apple has ever made, it’s certainly encroaching on the Mac Pro’s space.

    • Apple Mac Studio (Silver) at Best Buy for $1,999.99

    All this power comes at a price, and the M1 Max version starts at $1,999 / £1,999 / AU$3,099. That doesn’t seem outrageously expensive, but if you want one with an M1 Ultra – and we imagine most people considering a Mac Studio will be after that version – then you’ll need to shell out at least $3,999 / £3,999 / AU$6,099.

    The Mac Studio isn’t for mainstream users, but if you’re a professional looking for a powerful PC, then it certainly has its charms.

    Chief among those is the design. The Mac Studio is an impressively compact machine, around the size of one and a half Mac minis stacked on top of each other. This makes it easy to place on a desk or behind a monitor, making it look good in home offices and studios. It’s also easily portable if you want to take it between locations. The combination of compact design and powerful performance goes a long way to justifying the high price tag, and the fact that Apple has made such a powerful and small PC really is impressive.  

    (Image credit: Future)

    As we like to see with PCs for creative professionals, Apple has included a good selection of ports, including an all-important SD Card reader in the front.

    In our tests, the Mac Studio performs beautifully, handling 8K video editing extremely well and utilizing advanced AI-powered photo editing tools in Adobe Photoshop. Even more impressive, it does all this quietly – a testament to the power efficiency of Apple’s M1 chips, as well as the thermal design of the Mac Studio.

    If you’re a creative professional looking for a powerful and compact PC to work on, the Mac Studio is going to be a very tempting investment. Apple should be commended for what it’s achieved with this, but for mainstream users, you’re probably better off looking elsewhere.

    Price and availability

    The Mac Studio starts at a hefty $1,999 / £1,999 / AU$3,099 for the model with the M1 Max, certainly making it a pricey prospect.

    Meanwhile, the Mac Studio with the new M1 Ultra chip, 64GB of unified memory and 1TB SSD will cost a huge $3,999 / £3,999 / AU$6,099. This could put a lot of people off.

    If you want to go all-out, the maximum spec with the M1 Ultra, 128GB memory and 8TB SSD will cost you an eye-watering $7,999 / £7,999 / AU$12,099. That’s still cheaper than the most expensive Mac Pro, however.

    Apple’s ageing Mac Pro workstation starts at $5,999 / £5,499 / AU$9,999, with configuration options that can add tens of thousands of dollars or pounds to the price. Compared to this, the Mac Studio looks a lot better value for people looking for a professional-grade creative workstation, especially considering the performance benefits the M1 Ultra brings.

    The price of the Mac Studio also shows that this isn’t a device aimed at mainstream users. Instead, this is strictly for PC professionals, especially in the creative industries. For other people, the latest Mac mini (M1, 2020) is a much better proposition, and starts at $699 / £699 / AU$1,099.

    However, if you need the power of the M1 Ultra chip, the Mac Studio is currently the only device that comes with it, and it’s available to pre-order right now, with deliveries starting March 18. However, we’re already seeing huge demand for the device, leading to longer wait times for delivery.

    (Image credit: Future)

    If you’re a fan of the Mac mini, then you’ll like the design of the Mac Studio; it looks like a beefed-up version of its little brother. It’s built from a single aluminum extrusion, and has a square footprint of 7.7 inches and a height of 3.7 inches, making this an impressively compact computer considering the power on offer.

    Compared to other workstation desktop PCs, the size of the Mac Studio is remarkable, and is even smaller than the Corsair One i300, one of our favorite compact PCs. This is due to the M1 Max or M1 Ultra chips that power the Mac Studio. Apple’s M1 SoC (system on a chip) includes the processor (CPU), graphics (GPU) and unified memory, among other things, in a single package that takes up less space than the separate components powering a traditional PC would.

    We’ll go into what the M1 Ultra brings performance-wise in a bit, but the bottom line is that you’re just not going to get another PC of this performance level in such a compact chassis. For people who have a small amount of space to work on, or who like minimalist setups, the Mac Studio is going to really appeal.

    (Image credit: Future)

    While both the M1 Max and M1 Ultra Mac Studios have the same dimensions of 3.7 x 7.7 x 7.7-inches (9.5 x 19.7 x 19.7 cm), the M1 Ultra model is noticeably heavier, weighing 7.9 pounds (3.6kg) compared to the M1 Max model’s weight of 5.9 pounds (2.7kg). This is because the M1 Ultra needs a large copper thermal module, while the M1 Max, which runs cooler, uses a lighter aluminum heatsink. But even the heavier Mac Studio is perfectly easy to carry around and install wherever you like, especially compared to traditional desktop PCs.

    All that power in such a small space does have heat implications, and to keep things cool, double-sided blowers channel airflow through the Mac Studio. Combine that with the power-efficient design of the M1 Max and M1 Ultra chips and you have a small PC that can handle intensive tasks without overheating. It’s certainly an impressive feat.

    The Mac Studio also comes with a good range of connectivity options. There’s four Thunderbolt 4 ports, a 10Gb Ethernet port, two USB-A ports, an HDMI port and audio jack on the back, plus Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.

    (Image credit: Future)

    An SD card slot on the front, along with two USB-C ports, round out the offering and should give most people plenty of scope for connecting their peripherals and devices; it’s good to see Apple continue to offer plenty of connectivity with its professional-grade hardware. If you have the M1 Ultra model, you can plug in four Pro Display XDR monitors and a 4K TV as well.

    The front-facing ports make plugging stuff into them nice and easy if the Mac Studio is stashed away somewhere, but the power button is on the back, which can be a bit fiddly.

    The power supply is also built into the Mac Studio, so there’s no ugly external power brick, which some compact PCs use to try to keep overall size down as much as possible.

    If you watched Apple’s March Event, where it announced the Mac Studio alongside the Studio Display monitor, you’ll have likely heard the term ‘modular’ bandied about. Before you get too excited — Is the Mac Studio upgradable? Can multiple Mac Studios be daisy-chained together like Mac minis can into some uber-powerful super computer? — we have some bad news. By ‘modular’, Apple just meant that the Mac Studio doesn’t come with a display, or a keyboard or mouse. Yeah.

    While buying a computer without a monitor is commonplace, some people will be peeved that the $3,999 / £3,999 / AU$6,099 doesn’t come with a keyboard and mouse. Apple will say this allows you to use the Mac Studio with the keyboard and mouse you already have and rely on, but if you don’t currently have those peripherals, you’ll need to factor in the price of extra peripherals. There’s no HDMI cable, either, so if you don’t have any of those to hand, you’re going to have a very expensive – though undeniably stylish – paperweight until you do.

    Performance

    Benchmarks

    Here’s how the Apple Mac Studio performed in our suite of benchmark tests:

    Cinebench CPU: Single-Core: 1,519; Multi-core: 30,054
    Geekbench 5 Single-Core: 1,776; Multi-Core: 32,637
    Handbreak (1080p, Fast): 54.53fps
    Blender monster: 5,697
    Blender junkshop: 270
    Blender classroom: 265

    When Apple announced the Mac Studio, it threw out some big claims, including that it’s 50% faster than the MacBook Pro 13-inch with M1 chip, and offers 3.4 faster graphics than the most powerful iMac.

    It’s also apparently 80% faster than a Mac Pro with a 28-core Intel Xeon processor, and can support up to 18 streams of 8K ProRes video.

    These boasts refer to the capabilities of the Mac Studio with the new M1 Ultra chip, which is the model we have for review, and likely to be the model most serious creatives are tempted by.

    Before we get into the details of how the Mac Studio lives up to Apple’s claims, or if it falls short, we should give a shout out to the M1 Ultra, which really is remarkable. The M1 Ultra is essentially two M1 Max chips connected together using a super-fast and low latency connection known as UltraFusion.

    When the M1 Max launched alongside the new MacBook Pro 14-inch and MacBook Pro 16-inch late last year as the most powerful chip Apple had ever designed, it actually featured the UltraFusion connection – which no one spotted.

    This clever bit of forward thinking has allowed Apple to produce the M1 Ultra without altering the M1 Max. This means greater yields, as Apple doesn’t have to make new chips from scratch, which should avoid the sort of stock shortages we’ve seen with other chips recently.

    With the Mac Studio aimed at creative professionals, and using the M1 Ultra comprised of two M1 Max chips, which have already shown how good they are for creative workloads in the new MacBooks, it’s perhaps little surprise to learn that the Mac Studio is a formidable machine when it comes to video editing, coding and 3D modeling, in particular.

    When it comes to video, the Mac Studio puts in performance that easily rivals, and sometimes surpasses, desktop PCs with discrete professional graphics cards. This is impressive enough before you even factor in the compact size of the Mac Studio. It has the graphical grunt to handle 18 streams of 8K footage on the fly (which we tried for ourselves in Premiere Pro, allowing us to view, edit and add effects without having to wait for anything to render. The smoothness of the footage, even with numerous 8K elements on screen at once, is incredibly impressive – at one point the Mac Studio was putting through 8 billion pixels per second, and it coped admirably.

    While 8K video editing, especially using multiple 8K sources, is probably more intensive than what a lot of people are going to need, it’s good to see just how far we can push the Mac Studio. This performance headroom also means this should be an excellent performer for years to come, and that future-proofness goes some way to justifying the price, and minimizes the issue of the Mac Studio not being upgradable.

    Being able to edit such high-resolution footage on the fly, rather than having to wait for effects to load, or to render scenes before you preview, then re-render if you make any changes, also makes a big difference to your workflow. You will likely find yourself working much faster, and if you can complete projects earlier and take on more work, then the Mac Studio suddenly becomes a much more attractive investment.

    Being able to work on and edit complex 3D scenes and models is also a game-changer, and the M1 Ultra-powered Mac Studio again handles things with aplomb. With our review model coming with 128GB of unified RAM, it means the M1 Ultra’s GPU can take advantage of this large amount of super-fast memory. With this, we saw the Mac Studio load up an incredibly detailed 3D scene that took up more memory than most discrete professional PC GPUs come with. For 3D animators and designers who really want to let their imaginations run wild without bumping up against hardware limits, the possibilities the Mac Studio – and certainly the M1 Ultra – are incredibly exciting.

    Again, the ability to edit your scenes, move light sources or adjust cameras and textures and see your changes instantly is such an incredibly useful boost to your productivity that you may wonder how you ever coped without it.

    The processing power of the M1 Ultra also deserves praise here. From quickly compiling and testing code, while also running multiple emulated instances to test your apps on a variety of devices, to using advanced AI and machine learning in Photoshop, the Mac Studio does an excellent job. In the latter’s case, this is thanks to the Neural Engine, which in the M1 Ultra features 32-cores. Apple claims that this allows it to run 22 trillion operations a second to help accelerate machine learning tasks. It’s also twice the amount of cores that come with the M1 Max.

    Again, it’s best to see this in action. We used a variety of tools in Photoshop that rely in machine learning, and the results were very impressive. Quickly swapping out the sky for a more impressive cloud-filled look takes a matter of seconds. Doing these manually would take much longer, and it’s here that the extra power of the M1 Ultra  is a real benefit.

    This doesn’t mean the Mac Studio with M1 Max is not worth buying, however. While we don’t have one of those Mac Studio configurations, we’ve seen what the M1 Max can achieve in the latest MacBook Pro, and it’s still a fantastic chip, and still overkill for many. If you don’t need this kind of power for advanced professional uses, something more affordable, like the Mac mini, is a better choice. But, if you do need this power, the fact that Apple has made a PC the size of the Mac Studio so capable is very impressive indeed. It also remained incredibly quiet while we used it, even during intensive workloads.

    Buy it if…

    You’re a creative professional
    The Mac Studio is great in intensive workloads in creative apps like Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve.

    You want a compact PC
    While the Mac Studio is larger than the Mac mini, it’s not that much larger. It’s seriously impressive how compact this thing is.

    You don’t want to upgrade for a long time
    The performance of the Mac Studio means you’re unlikely to need anything more powerful for a long, long time.

    Don’t buy it if…

    You don’t need the power
    This may make sense, but the Mac Studio really isn’t a mainstream device. Unless you’re a creative professional, you won’t need this Mac.

    You like to upgrade
    As with other Apple devices, the Mac Studio can’t be opened and tinkered with. Instead, go for a tower PC, or even a new Mac Pro, when one gets announced.

    You’re on a budget
    The Mac Studio is a pricey investment – and it doesn’t even come with a mouse or keyboard.

    System requirements for 4K video editing software

    Processor RAM Video card Disk space
    Adobe Premiere Pro Intel Core i7 32GB 4GB 20 GB (SSD)
    Adobe Premiere Elements Intel Core i7 16GB DX 9-10 support 16 GB (SSD or HDD)
    Adobe After Effects 4×3 GHz 16GB DX 9 support 5 GB (SSD)
    Sony Vegas Pro 8×2 GHz 16GB 1 GB or more, OpenGL support 1 GB (SSD)
    Avidemux 4×3 GHz 8GB 512MB 1GB
    Video MOUNTING 4×3 GHz 8GB 512MB 8 GB (SSD)
    Movavi Video Editor 4×2. 8 GHz 8GB OpenGL 2.1 support 2GB

    Corel VideoStudio Pro 4×2.8 GHz 8GB 256MB 3GB
    Avid Media Composer Intel Core i7, Intel Xeon 32GB NVIDIA Quadro SSD+HDD from 100 GB

    Not all system requirements are taken from the developers’ websites. For some small programs like Avidemux, the hardware requirements for working with 4K video are not indicated. Adobe video editing software has been tested with top-end dedicated graphics cards: NVIDIA Quadro, NVIDIA GeForce Titan, NVIDIA GeForce GTX, AMD Radeon FirePro, AMD Radeon Vega PRO, AMD Radeon PRO. Small studios cannot afford such expensive tests, especially when it comes to free software.

    Cooling down

    When rendering, your computer will be stressed to the limit for some time. Very complex tasks can load it for several hours and even all night. The processor or video card (depending on what you are using for rendering) will heat up. Enough strong airflow must be created in the case so that the temperature does not rise during high continuous loads. For example, gaming PCs are not as prone to heat damage as games cannot load them at 100% for a long time.

    All processors and video cards have built-in burnout protection: when the temperature becomes critical, the PC will simply turn off. This unpleasant moment can spoil your finished project or violate the deadline for its delivery. Therefore, the correct cooling system is a very important point and should not be taken lightly.

    Best Video Editing Software: Free and Paid

    Apps & Services

    Author profile

    With the advent of YouTube and Tiktok, the need for video editing software has become massive.

    There are many programs for working with video, but they differ radically from each other in terms of accessibility for beginners. To choose the right one, I recommend deciding in advance how complex projects you want to do.

    If editing is needed solely for cuts between frames and classic transitions, you should pay attention to simple solutions – Movavi Video Editor for PC, iMovie for Apple devices or Videoleap for smartphones and tablets. Some mobile applications are completely free – we wrote about them separately.

    If you need more serious solutions, you will have to look at professional software. I have been editing videos for over five years, during which time I have worked with Disgusting Men, XYZ Media, DTF, Onliner and other publications. In this article, I will review several popular editing programs and point out what you should pay attention to when choosing them.

    • Movavi Video Editor
    • Adobe Premiere Pro
    • DaVinci Resolve
    • Vegas Pro
    • Final Cut Pro
    • Other things to look out for

    Movavi Video Editor

    Best for: beginners who don’t plan on editing professionally.

    How much: 1790 R for a one-time purchase or 1390 R for an annual subscription. There is a free version, but not all features are available.

    Benefits. In Movavi Video Editor, you can cut frames, work with multiple video and audio tracks, use pre-made transitions and effects, and add text. This is enough to make, for example, a video for a personal blog.

    Movavi positions its program as a solution for bloggers: on the official YouTube channel, developers tell how to make an interesting intro or effect for a video. Many of the preset effects in the program are specially designed to simplify the work of content makers: for example, you can crop footage for Instagram with one click or turn on the Picture-in-Picture mode, where the video with the blogger’s face will automatically be transferred to the corner of the screen.

    How much does it cost to make a short film

    Another advantage of Movavi Video Editor is accessibility. The program interface is very simple: the workspace consists only of a timeline, a preview window, and a panel with effects. No additional windows with markers, metadata and other elements that can confuse a beginner.

    If the interface seems too complicated, the first time the program displays contextual hints to help you get comfortable with the functions.

    This is what these tips look like

    Flaws. There is almost no flexibility in work. For example, in Movavi Video Editor, you can add popular transitions to videos, but you won’t be able to customize them in more detail: as a rule, you can only change the duration of the transition.

    Creating your own effects and transitions is out of the question. Even freely positioning frames in the desired place on the timeline will not work: the frame automatically “sticks” to another frame.

    There are many popular transitions in the program: for example, simulated VHS noise

    It is not possible to make, say, a transition with imitation of VHS noise in Movavi Video Editor on your own – there are no necessary tools. This is the difference between it and more advanced programs: for example, in Premiere Pro there is no ready-made transition through VHS interference, but it can be done using the effects available in the program by default.

    In addition, Movavi cannot work with animation keys, create a freeform mask, and so on. It lacks many fundamental features, without which the user will not be able to create intended effects and do something unique with his video.

    You won’t look at some of the transitions offered by the program without tears.

    Another problem with inexpensive editing programs is the need to buy new effects and transitions. The initial functionality of Movavi Video Editor is very poor: in order to make the video interesting, you will have to buy sets in the software manufacturer’s store. In the case of Movavi, they cost from 500 to 1000 R for a theme pack.

    Adobe Premiere Pro

    Suitable for: for those who plan to master editing at an advanced level.

    How much: 1622 R per month by subscription.

    Benefits. Adobe Premiere Pro is one of the most popular editing software today. For beginners, its interface may seem overwhelming, but this is the industry standard. Having mastered the Premiere, you can transfer to almost any alternative program without much effort.

    At first, this pile of windows looks complicated, but soon you realize: there is absolutely nothing superfluous here.

    Compared to cheap and free counterparts, Premiere Pro has much more advanced tools. For example, in it you can create masks for each frame, work with animation keys, perform color correction and use adjustment layers: the effects that are applied to them are automatically applied to all layers below.

    The main advantage of Premiere Pro is its popularity: you can always find a solution to a problem or a way to implement an unusual idea on the forums or on YouTube.

    In addition, over the years of the program’s existence, many custom transitions and effects have appeared on the Internet that can be bought or downloaded for free.

    If desired, the Premiere interface can be changed beyond recognition: drag windows to your liking, resize them, or remove them from the workspace altogether

    Another important feature of the program is the relationship with other products of the Adobe package: Photoshop, After Effects or Audition.

    Let’s say the user needs to make some kind of effect or infographic in After Effects. Then the created project needs to be rendered, and the finished video needs to be transferred to the timeline of the editing program. If something goes wrong or new ideas come up, you will have to re-enter After Effects, make changes and re-render.

    The Dynamic Link feature simplifies this process: with the help of it, you can transfer not the finished video, but the After Effects project file to the timeline, which will be updated with each change made in the program. In large projects, this can save a lot of time and nerves.

    Disadvantages. The program has been on the market for many years, but it can still produce spontaneous editing and rendering errors, and on powerful computers too. The situation is partially corrected by the project autosave function, but it’s still unpleasant to stumble upon errors, especially when you need to hand over a project.

    And you won’t be able to fully buy the program. Premiere Pro, like other Adobe products, is distributed by subscription. The company offers many different pricing plans: let’s say Premiere Pro costs R1622 per month separately. And the whole Creative Cloud package with all the programs of the Adobe family is just over 4000 R per month.

    DaVinci Resolve

    Best for: users who need flagship color grading tools and who don’t want to get out of one program when working on video.

    How much: 400 $ (400 R), there is a free version with restrictions.

    Benefits. The DaVinci Resolve is new to the editing software industry, but already competes with the market leaders thanks in large part to several unparalleled features.

    First, unlike Premiere Pro, DaVinci can be bought once and forever. In addition, there is a free version – it differs in the number of effects and a number of restrictions related to video output: for example, it does not have HDR rendering, as well as some popular effects like Lens Flare and Film Grain.

    DaVinci Resolve is not just a program, but a group of tools with a classic timeline “table”, a program for audio processing, working with effects and color correction. A project can be created from scratch without resorting to third-party solutions like Adobe, where you have to turn on Audition to work with sound, and creating complex graphics will not do without After Effects.

    DaVinci Resolve interface

    DaVinci Resolve color correction is considered the most advanced in the industry. This is not surprising: the program was originally intended only for color correction and only then acquired functions for full-fledged editing.

    To work with color, DaVinci has a whole tab with an impressive number of options: for example, it allows you to correct individual tones in a video, apply masks for local processing of a small section of a video. It is also extremely convenient to work with HDR in DaVinci.

    Other editing programs either do not have such functions, or they are implemented much worse. For example, to apply a mask to process some object in the frame in Premiere Pro, you will have to create a separate adjustment layer and add color correction effects to it. This greatly overloads the timeline and takes more time than in DaVinci, where you can easily add many convenient masks to each frame.

    DaVinci Resolve differs from other editing software in that it organizes the timeline differently. Competitors work with layers: objects on the timeline are located vertically relative to each other, and taller ones take precedence over those below.

    How I made money on Tiktok 117 165 R

    For example, for high-quality color processing in a frame, you must first carry out color correction and only then grading – to give the picture some specific texture, to make it “cinematic”. In this case, the color correction layer should be under the grading layer, because the latter is applied not only to the original frame, but also to the color correction layer.

    DaVinci Resolve, instead of traditional layers, uses a node system – it allows you to achieve the same results, but visually organized differently. Each effect is a separate cell. The network between all cells allows you to more clearly trace the logic of using each effect in the project.

    Usually the node system is used in programs for creating textures and models. Therefore, if after editing you decide to go, for example, to the CG industry, then the skills gained in DaVinci Resolve will greatly simplify your life.

    “Nodes” in this photo are located in the upper right tab. Source

    Disadvantages. DaVinci Resolve is much more difficult to learn than other editing programs. It has a more complex interface, and some features are not obvious to beginners.

    For example, in Premiere Pro, you can animate one of the frame properties directly on the timeline: change transparency, position, or scale. In DaVinci, all properties are shown on the timeline at the same time and take up more space. This is useful for professionals, as they can fine-tune the animation bezier and see how different animation keys relate to each other. But for beginners, such an interface will surely seem too overloaded.

    This intricate multi-colored lines at the bottom of the photo – and there are animated features of the video

    In Russian-speaking countries, the program is not yet as popular as the same Premiere Pro, so it will be more difficult to search the Internet for answers to your questions.

    Another disadvantage of the program is its resource requirements. DaVinci Resolve is significantly more power hungry than Premiere Pro or Vegas. Moreover, if the program notices that it is running out of memory, it may give an appropriate error and close, while other programs will try to continue working.

    In addition, for all its versatility, DaVinci Resolve is not suitable for solving absolutely any problem. For example, the section for creating Fusion graphics is an order of magnitude more primitive than After Effects: it is weak in creating shape animation, and the node structure visually complicates even simple processes.

    The simplest shape animation with flying primitive objects in After Effects looks very slender on the timeline. In DaVinci, a similar project looks heavy, and it will take a little longer to make a similar composition in it

    But this is still a matter of habit: Fusion has its own fans who will defend its convenience and node functionality. Therefore, when choosing the right tool for creating effects and graphics, be guided by your preferences, but keep in mind that there are much more After Effects tutorials on the Internet.

    Vegas Pro

    Best for: for those who want to learn non-linear editing but don’t want to pay for the app on a monthly basis.

    How much: 33 900 R for a one-time purchase or a monthly subscription for 2950 R. There is a trial period of 30 days.

    Benefits. About a decade ago, Vegas Pro was considered Premiere Pro’s main competitor. Today, they rarely talk about it: the program is not updated very quickly and does not keep up with current trends. Its main advantage over Premiere Pro is the one-time purchase for $400.

    However, Vegas has some nice features. When you purchase the program, you get a set of Primatte Studio plug-ins from Boris FX. It allows you to work with keying in more detail – selecting a separate object in a frame for further processing. This is a fairly powerful set of tools that does a better job than what competitors offer by default. In the case of Premiere Pro, you will have to buy it separately for $200 (200 R).

    Vegas Pro also has a couple of unique effects. The most interesting one is increasing the resolution of video material with the help of AI. Potentially this is a very useful tool, but in practice it does not work very well. If for a working project you need to “pull up” the resolution of the material, in any case, you will have to use more advanced tools: Topaz Video Enhance AI or services like Neural.love.

    Where to get free photos, sounds and videos for a website or blog

    Disadvantages. Visually, Vegas Pro resembles an older version of Premiere. The program has a set of effects familiar to editing programs, but not all functions work as well as those of competitors: for example, color correction is too primitive here.

    In addition, for 10 years the program has had a consistently bad system of animation keys, creating masks, as well as changing the basic properties of the video: scale, position, transparency. It is inconvenient to work with all this: for example, to change the position or scale, you have to manually move the virtual camera. In Premiere Pro, this is easily done using special sliders.

    Instead of moving the image, you have to move the camera – which is rather counter-intuitive

    However, all the described shortcomings of Vegas Pro do not make it a bad solution for editing. It can make complex videos, and many talented YouTubers continue to use Vegas Pro to this day, such as the video essayist…and Action. Some people are just used to Vegas, while others find the archaic interface pleasant and convenient. So do not write it off, especially since the program has a 30-day trial version – this is a good opportunity to evaluate Vegas Pro yourself.

    Final Cut Pro

    Suitable for: users with Apple devices.

    How much: 29 990 RUB

    Benefits. It will be easy for beginners to understand the basics of editing in it because of the simple interface. Of all professional programs, Final Cut Pro has the friendliest appearance: most of the screen is occupied by the preview window and timeline.

    Final Cut Pro is as functional as the competition. She has a set of all the usual effects. The main differences are pleasant little things: for example, it is very convenient to select video fragments and drag them to the timeline. And video stabilization does not need to be applied to each clip as a separate effect – it is the default.

    Final Cut Pro interface. Source: youtube.com

    The main advantage of the program is excellent optimization for supported devices. Even relatively old Apple machines can handle resolutions above 1080p, not to mention recent laptops and computers with M1 chips. Keep this in mind if you want to take a laptop for editing: there are no portable devices on Windows that are similar in performance.

    Disadvantages. Final Cut Pro only works on Apple devices.

    Other video editing software to look out for

    The industry is very competitive: you can find more than a hundred different editing applications in the Microsoft Store alone. Most of them, however, are not much different from each other, but there are several interesting programs, although they are not as popular as those that I described above.

    iMovie is the little brother of Final Cut Pro, another video editing software for Apple devices. It is installed by default on any of the company’s devices: from iPhone and iPad to MacBook and iMac. iMovie even has integration with Final Cut Pro – you can easily transfer files and projects from one program to another via iCloud or AirDrop.

    How to make money on YouTube

    Of course, there are much fewer functions in it – in this sense, iMovie is closer to Movavi or PowerDirector, but the application is absolutely free. So, if you have an Apple device, you can just learn the basics of video editing in it.

    iMovie is convenient to use both on laptops and on touch screens: the program is perfectly adapted for different devices. Source: tehnografi.com

    Avid Media Composer is one of the first ever digital editing software. Highly regarded among film and TV professionals, most major Hollywood films are edited in Avid. It has a very advanced toolkit for working with multiple cameras and synchronous control from multiple devices.

    At the same time, the program has a high entry threshold, and there are almost no detailed training videos. Therefore, I would recommend studying it only if you are going to work in the film industry. The cost is $23 (R23) per month.

    To the uninformed, the interface of Avid Media Composer looks rather intimidating.

    Which robot vacuum is the best: The best robot vacuums of 2023, tested by editors

    The best robot vacuum cleaners to get in 2023

    Robot vacuums are impressive devices that will clean your floors well without complaining (much). As prices have dropped, these busy little bots have become less of a luxury and more of a necessity. They can reach places most standup vacs never see (under beds and sofas) and, thanks to better batteries and robot brains, rarely get tired of cleaning.

    I have tested close to 50 robot vacuums at this point. The key criteria I look for in a robot vac are good battery life, a big bin (or an auto-empty option), a large rubber roller brush (less prone to getting tangled up than bristles), the ability to map your home, and an easy-to-use app. Many other features on top of these will make your life even easier (check out my list at the end of this guide), but these are the essentials.

    As for price: everyone and their uncle is now making robot vacs, so the market is completely oversaturated. This means you should only be paying the list price if you really want the newest model — and you want it right now. Otherwise, don’t buy a robot vacuum unless it’s on sale. You can expect to get a decent basic floor sweeper for under $200, a mapping auto-emptying model for around $400, and a top-of-the-line bot for $600. For those who want to do the least work, you’re looking at over $1,000 for one that sweeps, mops, and cleans itself.

    The good news is that robots these days have a ton of options, and whether you have a 3,000-square-foot home and three shaggy dogs or a small, stylish apartment you share with a goldfish, there’s a robot vacuum to suit your needs.

    The Roomba j7 is an AI-powered robot vacuum that detects and avoids common robot traps, such as cords, cables, and pet waste. It works with a stylish clean base that will clean the dirt out of its bin so you don’t have to. Read our review.

    $399 at Amazon$399 at Best Buy $399 at iRobot

    Dustbin capacity: 419ml / Auto-empty dock option: yes / Mapping: yes / AI obstacle avoidance: yes / Keep-out zones: yes, virtual / Brush style: dual, rubber / Works with: Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Siri Shortcuts

    iRobot’s Roomba j7 is the best of the best, offering excellent cleaning power, an impressive app, plenty of extra features, easy repairability, and a stylish design for around $600. If you have pets, children, or just lots of foot traffic and find it hard to keep up with your floors, this will do the dirty work for you.

    While the j7 is pricey, it’s the first Roomba with AI obstacle avoidance. This means it uses both a camera and some processor-powered smarts to see and avoid potential obstacles, such as power cables, shoes, socks, and pet waste. The real benefit here is that you don’t have to tidy up before you run your vacuum (although cluttered floors won’t get as clean). It also means that it rarely gets stuck during a job, so you won’t come home to a beached bot and a half-clean house.

    The Roomba j7 is a superb vacuum that looks good (for a vacuum) and works well. You can get the robot on its own or with iRobot’s Clean Base auto-empty dock — that model (pictured) is called the j7 Plus.

    Stepping it up a notch, and for about $200 more, you can take away the chore of emptying its decent size bin by investing in the j7 Plus, the j7 robot vac with an auto-empty dock. This is one of the most reliable, nicest-looking auto-empty docks I’ve tested. The design is compact with some welcome aesthetic touches, such as ribbed matte black plastic casing and a leather pull tab to access the bin area, so it doesn’t look too alien in your home. It also includes a cubby to store extra bags, though I wish you could fit more than one in there. (If you already have the j7, you can buy the dock separately for about $250.)

    The Roomba j7 is a mapping robot that can learn your home’s floor plan and identify the furniture and appliances in it. This lets you ask the robot (using the app or a voice assistant) to clean specific areas, such as in front of the fridge or behind the couch.

    While most mapping robots allow you to create virtual keep-out zones — areas the robot shouldn’t venture into — this Roomba uses its AI smarts to suggest trouble spots, making creating keep-out zones a one-tap job.  

    The j7 uses two rubber roller brushes and a large side brush.

    I like that you can link the robot to other smart devices in your house. You can set it to clean when you lock your front door or close your garage, for example. Using the geofencing feature in the iRobot app, I had the j7 start running when I leave the house and stop when I arrive home. This worked reliably, with the robot generally docking as I walked into the house. The only times it failed were when someone else was already in the house and they shut the robot off manually.

    The downside is that Roombas are noisy. The j7 is one of the loudest vacuums I’ve tested (hence the propensity to be silenced by a household member). But I like how easy they are to repair, a crucial factor for an expensive gadget you’d like to use for many years. My in-laws still have a Roomba they bought in 2007, and it works great. While parts are costly, they are readily available, including mechanical bits like wheels and the entire cleaning module. This is not the case for many of the other bots I tested. Roborock, for example, doesn’t sell spare parts beyond bags, bins, and brushes on its accessories site; you have to ship the robot to the company for any repairs.

    If you are looking for the best clean for your buck and want to avoid the possibility that the robot won’t finish its run because of stray clutter, the Roomba j7 is the one to go with. Its cleaning prowess is largely unmatched thanks to the decades of experience iRobot has in this space, and it’s one of the easiest robot vacuums to use. The app is simple and uncluttered, with new features added frequently.

    If you are looking for a robot that vacuums and mops, the Roborock S7 or S8 will suit you better than iRobot’s j7 Combo — a j7 with a mopping pad. It doesn’t do enough with its mopping feature to justify the extra price. However, if you have a lot of high-pile rugs, the j7 tackles these better than either the Roborock S7 or S8. In that case, I’d recommend getting the j7 and a separate mopping bot for your non-carpeted floors. iRobot’s Braava Jet m6 is a good option that can be programmed to mop after the Roomba vacuum is done. It’s often sold in a bundle.

    The best bang for your buck, the Roomba i3 Evo cleans just as well as the j7 but won’t avoid clutter and doesn’t have app-enabled clean zones or keep-out zones. If you can live without those, you’ll be very happy with this bot. You can also pair it with an auto-empty station for $200 more.

    $299 at Best Buy$299 at Amazon

    Dustbin capacity: 419ml / Brush style: dual rubber / Auto-empty dock option: yes / Mapping: yes / AI obstacle avoidance: no / Keep-out zones: physical only / Works with: Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Siri Shortcuts

    While the Roomba j7 is the best bot if you want all the bells and whistles, the Roomba i3 Evo is the best pick for a more affordable robot vacuum. There’s no AI obstacle avoidance or app-enabled clean or keep-out zones, but it does have smart mapping (so you can control exactly which rooms it cleans and when) and a physical spot-cleaning button for doing small areas on the fly. It’s almost as powerful as the j7 and just as repairable, so it should last you longer than a cheaper vacuum from another company.

    The mapping feature allows you to set a schedule for cleaning certain rooms or send it off at any time to clean just the kitchen or living room. This makes it less intrusive since it doesn’t try to clean the whole house on every run — so I didn’t find it dead in a corner as often after an annoyed family member shut it off. 

    For several hundred dollars less than the j7, the i3 has similar software features, the same suction level, and a slightly smaller battery. You can get it with an auto-empty dock for a list price of $550 (i.e., probably lower). However, it tends to bump into things more often than the j7, resulting in a few toppled chairs during testing. So it isn’t the right bot for you if you have delicate items like vases on pedestals.

    The Roomba i3 Evo Plus adds the auto-empty bin to the i3 and is the best value Roomba that can empty its own bin.

    The physical design is also very similar under the hood, with two multi-surface rubber roller brushes to get more dirt up. These rubber brushes don’t get tangled by long hair the way bristle brushes can. Because there’s no option to add keep-out zones in the app, you’ll need to buy iRobot’s virtual walls if there are places you don’t want the robot to go. These are little towers that emit a 10-foot barrier or a four-foot circle. They cost $99 for two, so if you need more than a couple of keep-out zones, it’s worth going for the j7 instead.

    The i3 has an attractive woven plastic gray top — a nice change from most of the shiny black plastic you find in this category (a magnet for dust, fingerprints, and scratches). It still gets stuck on common robot traps such as phone charging cables, cat toys, and in my house, the skinny feet of a lounger chair. You do need to tidy up a bit before you set it free, but it does better with large cables and rug tassels than many other robots. (iRobot has anti-tangle tech that makes the bot reverse course if it starts to get tangled.) This works pretty well for bigger items but, sadly, not phone charging cords.

    It’s also worth noting that the Roomba i4 is the same robot vacuum as the i3 Evo, so pick up whichever one is offering the best price.

    Eufy G20

    $180$28036% off

    Available as a vacuum G20 or vacuum / mop G20 Hybrid, Eufy’s G20 robot vacuum is a sleek and silent bot that does very well in small spaces, while the mop version is a good option for hardwood floors.

    $180 at Amazon$180 at Eufy

    Dustbin capacity: 450ml or 600ml / Auto-empty dock option: no / Mapping: no (does plan its path) / AI obstacle avoidance: no / Keep-out zones: no / Brush style: single bristle / rubber hybrid / Works with: Amazon Alexa, Google Home

    This small, practically silent robot is an ideal inexpensive option for a cozy apartment or to use as a second bot for an upstairs space or home office. Currently selling for $180, it lacks smart mapping features, has no smart obstacle avoidance, doesn’t have an auto-empty dock option, and only runs for 90 minutes. But it is the smallest and quietest vacuum I tested. 

    Despite being a budget bot, it doesn’t do the classic bump-and-roll navigation of most budget bots. Instead, it uses gyroscopic navigation to divide the space into individual areas and clean each one methodically. Watching it go to work as it moves up and down in neat rectangular boxes is quite soothing. 

    The Eufy G20 Hybrid has a bristle / rubber brush, a side brush (not pictured), and a mop pad. The G20 model doesn’t have a mop.

    Slimness is a trademark of Eufy bots, as is a stylish, sleek design. If the competition is a bulky SUV, Eufy is the Porsche of the robot vacuum world. At 2.85 inches high, the G20 is the smallest robot vacuum I tested. Combined with a whisper-quiet operation (66 decibels on the lowest suction level on hardwood floors), this makes it a good option if you’re looking for something to get under low furniture or run quietly while working in your home office.  

    It also holds a decent amount of debris. The standard model has a large 600ml dustbin, which can handle five or six runs’ worth of debris in a small space before emptying it. If you’ve got hardwood floors, the G20 Hybrid model swaps the 600ml debris bin for a 450ml bin and has a 130ml mopping reservoir. This will not do much to mop your floors, but it does help with fine dust and debris on hard floors. 

    Compared to the Roomba i3, the Eufy has fewer features, lacks mapping and room-specific cleaning, and doesn’t have the option of an auto-empty dock. But it makes up for that somewhat with a bigger bin and / or the option of a mopping attachment. It’s also cheaper, and it’s smaller and shorter, so it will fit under lower furniture better.

    While not a feature I consider essential for operation, the G20 has a remote control option in the Eufy Home app, which means it can also double as a fun cat toy.

    $430$65034% off

    This multitasking robot mops and vacuums — and does both very well. It can even lift its mop to vacuum your rugs without getting them wet. It works with an auto-empty charging base (sold separately) and has Alexa, Google, and Siri voice control.

    $430 at Amazon$430 at Walmart$430 at Roborock

    Dustbin capacity: 470ml / Auto-empty dock option: yes / Mapping: yes / AI obstacle avoidance: no / Keep-out zones: yes, virtual / Brush style: single rubber / Works with: Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Siri Shortcuts

    The Roborock S7 was the first hybrid vacuum / mop that actually did a good job. Many more have come out since its launch in 2021, but it’s still the best. Now, at what appears to be a permanent sale price of under $430, it’s a serious bargain.

    The S7’s killer combo is a mop that vibrates 3,000 times a second to simulate some good old-fashioned scrubbing, which is paired with an extra-large water tank so the mop can actually get wet enough to be effective.

    The S7 also has an ingenious “VibraRise’’ feature that lifts the mop a few millimeters when it senses carpet, meaning you don’t get a damp rag dragged over your living room rug. Another bonus is that I didn’t have to swap out the mopping pad when I wanted it to vacuum only — something you have to do with most hybrid models. But the VibraRise feature can only clear low-pile rugs, so I set a no-mopping zone around my plush floor coverings.

    The Roborock S7 has a rubber brush, a side sweeper, and a detachable mopping unit.

    The S7 is the best bot that can actually mop at a reasonable price. It does require a bit more hands-on effort, though, since you have to refill the reservoir (it doesn’t warn you when it’s empty) and wash the mopping pads (you can throw them in the washing machine).

    I also like that you can use the S7 as two separate robots — a vacuum and a mop. It has a mop-only mode that moves in a tighter “Z” pattern and goes over the floors twice. I liked to send it out to vacuum everywhere first, then recharge and go out again to mop, which resulted in sparklingly clean floors. It did take about five hours total, though.

    The Roborock S7 Plus combines the S7 robot vac with an auto-empty dock, but it’s an expensive upgrade.

    The Roborock S7 uses lidar sensors to map your home in minutes. It also gives you the option of room-specific cleaning commands (with the app or voice control via Alexa, Google, or Siri) and allows you to set keep-out zones. This is essential as it doesn’t have AI obstacle avoidance, so it does get stuck in regular robot traps such as clusters of cables. It also struggles with tight furniture footprints since it’s quite wide.

    If you really want AI obstacle avoidance and the deeper clean that comes with dual roller brushes, the Roborock S8 is arriving in April for $749.99. But for almost half the price on sale, the S7 is the better option right now.

    Best self-cleaning robot vacuum / mop

    Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra

    $1400

    This robot is expensive but worth it if you want cleaning your floors to be almost completely hands-free for up to two months at a time. It works with Alexa, Google Home, and Siri Shortcuts for smart home control and doubles as a home security camera.

    $1400 at Amazon

    Dustbin capacity: 400ml / Auto-empty dock option: yes / Mapping: yes / AI obstacle avoidance: yes / Keep-out zones: yes, virtual / Brush style: single rubber / Works with: Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Siri Shortcuts

    If you want a robot that vacuums, mops, empties its own dust bin and dirty water tank, refills its own clean water tank, and even cleans itself, the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is the best of a small but growing category of self-cleaning robots.

    The S7 MaxV Ultra has the same sonic VibraRise mopping action as the S7, so it mops very well. But it also has AI-powered obstacle recognition, so it won’t get caught in clutter and can avoid rolling in dog poop. There’s the option of using the onboard camera as a security camera, with two-way talk built in (livestream only — there’s no recording). 

    The downside is that the charging / cleaning base is huge and unattractive. And while it is well-designed — it’s easy to fill the fresh water and empty the dirty water tank — it does get a bit smelly. You also need to clean the mopping station periodically, and there is no hot air drying. Instead, it lifts the mop up to let it air dry.

    The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is a new breed of bot that can do more for you, for a lot more money.

    The mop cleaning and drying process is efficient, and in theory, you don’t need to remove the pad after every run. But I recommend throwing it in the washing machine when emptying the dirty water tank.

    One downside of this type of hybrid vacuum is that it needs to go back to its base every 20 minutes to refill and wash its mop. This process is quite loud and takes two or three minutes to complete as the little brush in the base runs back and forth across the mop and scrubs it. This extends the time it will take to completely clean your home (although you can tweak the timing in the app). But you do get much cleaner floors as a result.

    I’ve tested several models in this category now, and the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is my favorite. The Ecovacs Deebot X1 Omni (which has a built-in voice assistant) is also good, but the Roborock can vacuum carpets and mop simultaneously. In contrast, you have to choose your cleaning preference with the Ecovacs model each time you send it out.

    Roborock’s latest version — the S8 Pro Ultra (due out in late April) — has a redesigned dock with a cleaner look, the option of white as well as black, and a mop drying feature. Also, the S8 is the first Roborock with two roller brushes, not just one, which gets a better clean on carpets. However, its list price is $1,600. If you can find the MaxV Ultra on a good sale, you’ll be very happy.

    Shark AI Ultra XL

    $

    470

    $470$60022% off

    A brash, loud auto-emptying robot vacuum that’s long on features and short on style but comes at a real bargain. The Shark AI’s slimline bin / dock doesn’t use bags, which is a bonus. But don’t be fooled by the AI in the name — it can only avoid objects if they’re over four inches tall.

    $470 at Amazon

    Dustbin capacity: unknown / Auto-empty dock option: yes / Mapping: yes / AI obstacle avoidance: yes, but only large objects / Keep-out zones: yes, virtual / Brush style: single hybrid bristle / Works with: Amazon Alexa, Google Home

    Shark’s flagship robovac is the company’s first that uses lidar mapping. This brings the level of this bot way up, making it much more reliable than some of Shark’s previous models. It’s also designed exclusively as a self-emptying bot, and for the money, it’s a great deal. It’s loud and ugly, and its AI isn’t nearly as good, but it has most of the features of the Roomba j7 Plus for somewhere around half the price (depending on the day).

    A mapping robot, the Shark has room-specific cleaning and app-enabled keep-out zones. It also has a handy Zones feature that lets you select areas of your house — say, half the living room and the hallway — to clean on a schedule. This is useful for regular quick cleans in high-traffic areas, and it doesn’t need to be set up every time you run it, as with some clean zone options. The Roomba i3 Evo Plus doesn’t have clean zones or keep-out zones, so if those features are important to you and the j7 Plus is a step too far, the Shark is a good option.

    The Shark AI Ultra XL has a hybrid bristle brush Shark calls “self-cleaning” and two side brushes.

    The major downside is that this robot is loud. It rattles terribly as it rolls around and is super distracting — you want to be far away when this is doing its job. The design is also flashy and ugly: lots of chrome and shiny black plastic and a really obnoxious Shark logo. But the base is relatively compact, and it’s the only self-emptying robot I tested that doesn’t use bags. You empty it over the trash bin, so cost-wise, you don’t have to spend $20 every few months for extra bags (which is how much iRobot charges for a three-pack of bags).

    Shark just introduced a mopping version of this bot, the Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1. This adds “sonic” mopping (i.e., it scrubs a bit) for $100 more. As with Roomba’s mopping version, this is of limited value as an actual mop but will get up some of that fine dust the robot’s suction misses. You can also buy this model separately for around $400. While I love auto-empty bases, sometimes you don’t have space for them, especially if you like your robot to live under your bed (this is a useful thing, not a kinky thing).

    Battle of the bots. We tested a lot of robot vacuums. Here are some of the features we think will make you happy.

    What to look for in a robot vacuum cleaner

    Beyond the basic specs I’ve already mentioned, there are four key features to consider when buying a robot vacuum. You don’t need all of these, and each will mean spending more than the most basic budget bots in this roundup. But each one will bring you a little closer to the Rosie the Robot dream.

    • Mapping with virtual no-go zones. A robot that can map your house allows for precision cleaning and avoidance (crucial if you have delicate objects or areas in your home). Using variations on a technology called simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), the bot will map your home to make sure it doesn’t miss spots and allow you to tell it where you want it to go (in the app or with a voice assistant). Mapping can also add “virtual” no-go zones — digital walls to prevent your bot from going where you don’t want it to. These are also useful for keeping it out of areas where it gets stuck. Every bot I’ve tested struggles around the legs of my swivel armchair, so I create a no-go zone there.
    • AI obstacle avoidance. This adds some souped-up smarts to your robot, helping it “intelligently” avoid clutter (and a potential poop apocalypse if it encounters pet waste). These models use cameras (worth noting) to see objects in their path and decide how to approach them. Robot vacuums with AI avoidance are much less likely to get stuck when cleaning, meaning you’re more likely to come home to a clean floor. It also means you don’t have to tidy up before the robot runs, as it can navigate around shoes, socks, and other common clutter.
    • Auto-empty dock. This turns the charging base for your robot into a motorized emptying station that sucks out the dirt from its bin. (Warning: this process is very loud!) This saves you from having to pull out the bin after every few runs and empty it yourself. Instead, you’ll have to replace the bag when it gets full — about once a month on average. If you don’t get a robot with an auto-empty dock, look for one with a large capacity bin — 600 to 800ml — to avoid having to do the dirty work too often.
    • Self-cleaning dock. Most robot vacuums have the option of mopping now, too, and some of these smart stations can drain and fill the bot’s water tank and clean and dry the mopping pad. You will need to refill the water tanks and empty the dirty water about once a week as well as clean out the dock’s sink occasionally (which gets grubby quickly). These models are all better at mopping than standard mop / vacuum hybrids.

    AI obstacle avoidance can help robots avoid sticky situations.

    Outside of these features, you’ll be faced with lots of specs around suction power, but largely all of these rolling sweepers are suitably sucky, picking up everything from dog hair and kitty litter to Cheerios and dust bunnies. Most have multiple suction levels and will adjust to suck harder when they sense carpet.

    However, none could really, truly get carpets clean. They get the surface debris, but if you have a carpeted house or lots of rugs, I’d recommend investing in a stick vac for weekly deep cleans. These are also handy for stairs, something no robot vacuum can tackle (yet).

    The key to a clean floor with a robot vac is consistency. Run it daily if you can; it won’t keep up as well if it only runs once a week. If you want hands-free cleaning everywhere, you’ll want to budget for one per floor or be prepared to move it around. You can also buy extra charging bases, and some models can map multiple floors.

    Every Wi-Fi-connected robot vacuum worth its salt today works with Alexa or Google smart speakers for voice control. However, some are limited to stop / start and pause, whereas others can be told to go clean specific areas. Here’s how to set up a bot with Alexa voice control or Google Home voice control. A couple of manufacturers now also work with Siri Shortcuts, so you can use Apple’s Siri voice assistant to command your bot. If you want this, look for robots from iRobot or higher-end models from Roborock and Ecovacs. Robot vacuums are supposed to be part of Matter in the future, but who knows when that will happen.

              If you don’t have time to regularly sweep or vacuum, robot vacuums are an easy way to ensure your home stays clean without needing to do all the work. Since they use various types of technology like lasers or cameras to navigate and maneuver around a room, they can generally avoid furniture and get beneath couches and tables relatively easily. Some of the best automatic vacuums can self-empty their dirt compartments, reducing the work you need to do. Although they aren’t as good at cleaning carpet as more traditional upright vacuums, many come with smart pathing technology to clean more efficiently. Many also come with companion apps or remote controls to set up scheduled cleaning times or place boundaries to keep it out of certain areas.

              We’ve tested over 50 robot vacuums, and below are our recommendations for the best robot vacuum cleaners you can buy. These picks are selected based on their performance, feature set, design, and price. For more recommendations, look at our list of the best vacuums, the best vacuums for high-pile carpet, and the best vacuums for pet hair.

                The Roborock S7 MaxV is the best robot vacuum we’ve tested. This high-end robot vacuum has a dual-sensor navigation system, which combines a LIDAR mapping sensor that maps out your home with a pair of 3D scanning cameras at the front of the vacuum that allows it to spot and identify common obstacles like power cords, furniture legs, or even pet waste in real-time. You also look through those cameras while away from home, effectively turning into a roving security camera, and speak to anyone nearby through the onboard speakers. The vacuum’s cameras also allow it to identify the type of room it’s in based on the furniture within and automatically suggest different cleaning modes for different room types, like bedrooms, kitchens, or bathrooms.

                In terms of cleaning performance, it does a great job of clearing away debris on bare floors and does an okay job cleaning carpets. Its ultrasonic mopping system differs from most other passive mopping systems, as its pad vibrates to actively scrub away dried-on stains. The vacuum is fully compatible with Roborock’s Empty Wash Fill dock, which further helps reduce hands-on maintenance by automatically emptying its dustbin, refilling its water tank, and washing its mopping pads. However, this is a pretty expensive additional accessory and pushes the already expensive MaxV into a sky-high price bracket.

                Check out the Ecovacs DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI if you’re shopping at an upper mid-range price. Like the Roborock S7 MaxV, it uses front-facing cameras to spot and identify hazards in real time and LIDAR to map out its coverage area. However, while it has a mopping feature, it’s a rudimentary passive system, so unlike the Roborock vacuum’s Ultrasonic mopping system, it doesn’t scrub the ground. As such, it must make a few extra passes to clear away dirt and mud. Otherwise, it still has a pretty advanced set of automation features. You can use its companion app to set up virtual no-go zones, direct it to a specific area within your home, or schedule cleaning sessions for individual rooms. Debris pickup performance on bare floors and carpets is impressive overall, and it’s compatible with a self-emptying station to minimize hands-on maintenance. However, like the Roborock, this self-emptying dock is also quite pricey.

                If a better stain-clearing capability is important, it’s hard to go wrong with the basic Roborock S7. It features the same ultrasonic mopping system as the flagship S7 MaxV to scrub dried-on stains. That said, unlike the S7 MaxV or Ecovacs, it only has a LIDAR sensor, with no cameras to spot low-lying hazards in real-time.

                The Roborock Q5 is a good choice if you’re shopping at a lower price. While you’re missing out on the real-time hazard identification system found on the Roborock S7 MaxV and Ecovacs DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI, this relatively affordable vacuum offers good value for money. It has a LIDAR mapping system that maps out rooms quickly compared to most optical sensor-based systems, especially in dimly lit rooms. Its companion app is very easy to use and lets you set up virtual boundary lines that it won’t cross or direct it to clean a specific room in your home. It delivers exceptional performance on bare surfaces like hardwood or tile floors and is remarkably effective when dealing with pet hair, though it struggles a little on carpet. Unlike the Ecovacs or Roborock S7 MaxV, it lacks a mopping system for stains. The Q5+ variant comes bundled with a self-emptying station, so you won’t have to empty its dustbin manually, though this configuration is considerably more expensive than the base variant.

                Unfortunately, despite having a high-efficiency E11 filter, it does a terrible job of sealing in fine particles, which are blown free from gaps in its body and LIDAR sensor. If you have allergies, the Wyze Robot Vacuum is a better option. It also features LIDAR navigation and does a much better job of sealing in allergens like pet dander. However, it has a shorter battery life and a slightly less feature-packed companion app. Unlike the basic Q5, the Wyze isn’t compatible with a self-emptying base station.

                For those looking to spend as little as possible, the Neato D8 is the best robot vacuum cleaner at a budget price we’ve tested. It has a much shorter max battery life of 70 minutes than the Roborock Q5, so it’ll probably need to return to its base station to recharge when cleaning larger areas. It isn’t compatible with a self-emptying base station, which would help reduce hands-on maintenance requirements. That said, it still offers quick and precise LIDAR mapping at a much more affordable price than the Roborock. It allows you to set up virtual boundary lines for areas you don’t want the vacuum to enter, but be aware that you need a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network for you to connect to the vacuum. Unfortunately, its squared-off front end is liable to get caught on furniture.

                Performance on flat, even surfaces is superb, and it does an alright job of handling debris on carpeted surfaces, though it’ll probably need to make an extra pass to collect everything. It’s also capable of automatically adjusting its suction power depending on the surface it’s on, which is a rare but welcome feature at this price point.

                If you suffer from allergies but still want a robot vacuum to handle your light-duty cleaning needs, the iRobot Roomba S9 is among the robot vacuums we’ve tested. Compared to the Roborock S7 MaxV, it lacks a mopping attachment and has a much simpler optical sensor-based system with no LIDAR mapping and no real-time hazard identification and avoidance capability. That said, this vSLAM system still builds a pretty detailed map of its coverage area, and you can use its companion app to send it to labeled areas or set up boundary lines the vacuum won’t cross. It has an onboard HEPA filter, which is highly effective in trapping particles like pet dander. The S9+ variant has a self-emptying dock that can suck debris from its internal dustbin into an external dirtbag without manual intervention, so you don’t have to worry about creating a cloud of dust and debris when emptying it.

                If you don’t mind giving up the onboard HEPA filter, the yeedi vac station offers self-emptying capability at a much lower purchase price. The yeedi also has a passive mopping system, though it isn’t especially effective in clearing stains.

              • eufy RoboVac X8:
                The eufy RoboVac X8 is an advanced robot vacuum with relatively advanced automation capabilities, but it lacks the hazard avoidance feature found on the Ecovacs DEEBOT OZMO T8 AIVI.

              • eufy RoboVac 25C:
                The eufy RoboVac 25C is a good option if you’re looking for a budget-friendly vacuum that you can control with a physical remote control. Unfortunately, its random-pathing navigation system makes it less efficient in cleaning rooms than the smart-pathing Neato D8, and the vacuum falls short in debris-pickup performance.

              • iRobot Roomba j7+:
                The iRobot Roomba j7+ is another good alternative to the iRobot Roomba S9 if you want a model that offers real-time hazard avoidance and comes with a self-emptying base station at a slightly cheaper price point. However, it falls short of the S9 at debris pickup performance.

              1st place – Okami U100 Plus

              Okami U100 Plus ranks first. This is because the robot performs both dry and wet cleaning on the top five. The Japanese NIDEC engine provides power up to 5000 Pa (with an average of 2500 Pa for similar models): with such suction power, the vacuum cleaner will accurately collect all the dust and debris. Models like U100 Plus , prove that robotic vacuum cleaners do not just move around the apartment, but really clean up.

              Wet cleaning is also on the level. The robot moves along a Y-shaped trajectory: it moves back and forth and at the same time turns to the sides. So he wipes one place several times.

              Thanks to the laser rangefinder, the vacuum cleaner analyzes the room in seconds and sends the finished map to the app. It exhibits restricted areas or virtual walls. The vacuum cleaner can memorize several cards at once, which is useful if, for example, you live in your own two-story house.

              Using the application, it is also convenient to zone cleaning: select some rooms that the device needs to clean, or forbid it to enter others. You can set the schedule for the device: at the right time, it will turn on and clean the house on its own. The application will also remind you of the planned replacement of consumables.

              If you want a robot vacuum cleaner with a self-cleaning station, then we advise you to look at the model Okami U110 Home Station .

              2nd place – Roborock S7

              Many have heard about it – this is a really solid model from the brand Roborock . Suction power of 2500 Pa is average, now there are devices at the same price, but with higher performance. However, this suction power is enough to clean floors and short pile carpets.

              We also note the volume of the dust container: 470 ml is enough for several cleanings. The battery of this model is capacious, 5200 mAh provides 3 hours of battery life. The turbo brush in this vacuum cleaner is silicone, and it has a floating mechanism, that is, it constantly adheres to the floor surface. So it turns out to collect more garbage.

              Now about wet cleaning: manufacturers have introduced a new Sonic Sea technology into the Roborock S7 . Vibrations are applied to microfiber, their frequency reaches 3000 times per minute. Thanks to this vibration, the robot rubs the floor more thoroughly. When hit on the carpet, it will lift the structure with microfiber, so that you can carry out dry and wet cleaning at the same time.

              This model also has a laser rangefinder, so it generates accurate indoor maps and saves them in the app. There you can also put up a virtual wall, draw a forbidden line, make a schedule, adjust the power or water supply to the microfiber.

              Roborock S7 can be purchased with a self-cleaning station, but it is quite expensive, so decide for yourself if you need it.

              3rd place – Dreame L10 Pro

              In third place in the ranking is a model from the company Dreame , sub-brand Xiaomi . The suction power of 4000 Pa in a fairly budget model is impressive. The device can collect dust and mop floors at the same time.

              In addition to lidar, the robot is equipped with a 3D sensor for detecting objects. Useful if you often throw things or your children like to play on the floor. How it works: while cleaning, the vacuum cleaner notices an object lying on the floor, recognizes it and marks it on the map. The device copes with almost all household items.

              The battery capacity of this model is 5200 mAh, but the battery life is less than Roborock S7 – 2.5 hours. This is due to the suction power: the higher it is, the less time the vacuum cleaner will clean without recharging. But the device can continue cleaning after recharging from the place where it stopped.

              You can control the robot through the official app Xiaomi Home . It can make a cleaning plan for each room, set up a route plan, select power mode

              The robot has a standard wet cleaning, it just wipes the floor. Even at the maximum water supply, the device moderately wets the microfiber, so it is unlikely to damage wooden floors.

              4th place – Panda EVO

              We continue our rating with a model from the brand Panda . It is super budget and is suitable for owners of small apartments. SLAM sensors and a gyroscope are responsible for navigation: the robot will quickly build a map, but it will not be able to save it. This means that with each new cycle, it will re-create a map of the room.

              The dust container is gigantic: as much as 800 ml. It can be emptied once every two weeks. But the tank for wet cleaning is small, 180 ml. By the way, the robot will mop the floors in the same way as most other models, that is, just wipe it. Suction force – 2150 Pa. Slightly below average, but enough to pick up dust and debris from smooth floors.

              On a single charge, the robot works for 2 hours – this time is enough for small spaces. The device can carry out both dry and wet cleaning at the same time. For the turbo brush, a brush with a safe blade is included, which significantly speeds up the process of cleaning it.

              The robot does not support virtual walls, but the manufacturers took care of the magnetic tape. You can put tape in the doorway to keep the vacuum cleaner from leaving the room, or protect the wires with it.

              5th place – Abir X8

              This model impresses with suction power and advanced wet cleaning. When washing floors, the robot moves in a Y-shaped path, like Okami U100 Plus . Suction power can be increased up to 5000 Pa, the nominal value is 2500 Pa.

              Lidar-based navigation allows the robot to quickly scan a room and get to work right away. First, he goes around the perimeter, and then cleans the whole room entirely.

              The capacity of the dust container is impressive: 600 ml, and the wet cleaning tank is not that small, 360 ml. But the battery capacity is small, especially for such suction power. 3200 mAh is enough for 1.5-2 hours of cleaning with rated power.

              Weback , an application for managing the device, is a bit damp, not everyone can figure out the functions, and connecting to it can be problematic. If you are not afraid of such difficulties, great.

              6th place – Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2

              Another budget model in our ranking, but it deserves to be here for several reasons. Firstly, not all robot vacuum cleaners have a suction power of 2700 Pa (we made sure of this when we talked about Roborock S7 ). Another plus: the vacuum cleaner automatically increases the suction power when it is placed on the carpet.

              The robot moves using infrared and vSLAM sensors. Since the vacuum cleaner does not have a lidar, its height is only 8. 1 cm. It will be easier for him to drive under low furniture and other hard-to-reach places. Sometimes it makes mistakes and does not recognize objects. If he crashes into something, he will change the route. But he has a route and he does not move randomly, which is already good.

              3200 mAh battery provides up to 110 minutes of battery life. For large houses, the device is hardly suitable. The dust collector is big, on 550 ml. Wet cleaning tank is standard.

              Wet cleaning itself is basic, we can’t say anything interesting about it. You can control the robot through the application Xiaomi Home .

              7th place – Genio Deluxe 500 Pro

              We download our rating with a robot vacuum cleaner from the brand Genio . It navigates in space using a gyroscope and 36 motion sensors. Suction power 2200 Pa. This robot is even lower than the model from Xiaomi . With a height of 7.6 cm, it will crawl through everywhere.

              Suction force – 2200 Pa. Not bad for a budget model. Containers for dust and water are capacious, often you do not have to empty them. It’s nice that the device has two side brushes: it will be better to collect debris.

              In turbo mode, the robot cleans for 1.5 hours, and in the minimum mode – up to 4 hours.

              In the mobile application, you can schedule the operation of the device, view a map of the premises, put up a virtual wall. Connecting to the application can be difficult, but they are solvable.

              Wet cleaning is standard, nothing much to say about it.

              Instead of total

              It was important for us to mention in the rating not only expensive models, but also more budget options. It is clear that vacuum cleaners priced from 30 thousand are better than vacuum cleaners up to 20 thousand, but we believe that good options can be found among inexpensive devices.

              A robot vacuum cleaner is useful if there is no time for daily cleaning or, for example, there are shedding pets in the family. But you should not expect that it will completely relieve you of worries – even powerful and expensive devices do good maintenance cleaning, but a full-fledged washing vacuum cleaner cannot be replaced. Nevertheless, in everyday life such a gadget can be very useful. And so that the choice of such a device is not difficult, you should pay attention to the 10 most relevant robot vacuum cleaners in 2022.

              Robot vacuum cleaner DEXP LF200

              This is the simplest model that will sweep dust off the floor and remove wool. On one cycle, the battery will last almost two hours, then return to the docking station and charge for more than six hours. In practice, such a vacuum cleaner can clean one room at a time, but one charge is not enough for a full-fledged apartment. You can set the vacuum cleaner to start on a schedule. Judging by the reviews, it does not collect hair from the carpet. Garbage tank 0.3 liters, will have to be cleaned after each cleaning.

              Scarlett SC – VC80R21

              Budget robot for daily cleaning. It automatically selects the trajectory of movement, moves slowly, orients itself in space with the help of an infrared beam – this means that the vacuum cleaner sees obstacles and will not crash into them. Sometimes the sensors are wrong and the vacuum cleaner stops near the carpet. There are height difference sensors, the vacuum cleaner can be used even in a room with stairs.

              The vacuum cleaner works autonomously for an hour and a half. On charging you need to put it manually, using a regular network adapter. Charges in about two and a half hours.

              Vitek VT-1806

              • Price: from 10 890 ₽

              Vitek VT-1806 robot vacuum cleaner

              This vacuum cleaner can also be called a budget model, but it has a larger dust collector, 0.45 liters. You can control the robot from the remote control – there are modes of regular automatic cleaning, cleaning in a spiral or along walls. The charge will last for two hours, then the vacuum cleaner will go to the docking station on its own.

              Wet cleaning is implemented with a removable unit – relatively speaking, a wet nozzle is simply attached to the vacuum cleaner, which lasts for several minutes. To perceive it as a full-fledged mopping, of course, is not worth it.

              This is a mid-range robot – it still has a fairly low price compared to top-end devices, but you can still try advanced and convenient features. For example, wet cleaning in the robot is implemented not just by attaching a wet nozzle, but by a full-fledged reservoir with control. You can even choose how intensively the water will be spent. This is convenient if the vacuum cleaner needs to work on delicate surfaces – parquet or linoleum that is unstable from moisture.

              Power can also be customized, there are four modes. The weakest is suitable for quiet daily cleaning, and the strongest for deep cleaning, but the robot will work loudly. You can control the vacuum cleaner by voice or an application from your smartphone.

    Nikon 35mm f/1.4G Review

    This is an in-depth review of the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G prime lens that was announced in September of 2010. The Nikon 35mm f/1.4G is a professional-grade lens for enthusiasts and professionals that need the highest quality optics of a fixed wide-angle lens with a large aperture of f/1.4 for low-light situations and shallow depth of field to isolate subjects from the background, making it an ideal candidate for many types of photography, including portrait, wedding, landscape and astrophotography.

    The lens incorporates the latest optical technology destined for both FX and DX sensors (equivalent of approx 52. 5mm on DX), yielding amazing clarity and contrast in most challenging lighting conditions. The Nikon 35mm f/1.4G follows the release of the excellent Nikon 24mm f/1.4G lens, having similar lens characteristics. Although the lens exterior and construction seem to be almost identical, the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G has a simpler optical design when compared to the Nikon 24mm f/1.4G (more on this below).

    The focal length of 35mm is a good compromise between ultra-wide angle lenses and standard lenses – it is not too wide or too long. As for the lens interior and optics, Nikon integrated the latest technology into this lens, including AF-S silent-wave focus motor and Rear Focus (to eliminate front barrel rotation and lens length changes) and enhanced the optical formula of the lens by incorporating Nano crystal coating and Super Integrated Coating (SIC) to reduce ghosting and flares. The lens is of high quality build, similar to other AF-S Nikon primes and is sealed against dust and tough weather conditions. Thanks to the 9-blade diaphragm, the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G renders background highlights in a round, circular shape and the maximum aperture of f/1.4 makes this lens a great portrait lens for both images and video, especially in low-light conditions.

    In this review, I will provide a thorough analysis of the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G lens, along with image samples and comparisons against Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm F/2.0 ZF.2 and other Nikon lenses like Nikon 35mm f/2.8 AIS and the newer Nikon 35mm f/1.8G.

    Lens Handling

    Just like other Nikon professional prime lenses, the new Nikon 35mm f/1.4 lens has a very high quality build. The outer barrel is made of plastic, but feels just like the expensive Nikon metal lenses, most likely due to the lens weight. It is designed to withstand tough weather and is well-protected on the outside against dust and moisture. I shot the lens in very dusty conditions in Utah with high winds and in one case ended up with plenty of dust and sand all over the lens during a hike through a sandy area of Arches National Park. It continued to function well without any problems. I wiped off the dust/sand with a regular brush and then thoroughly cleaned it with a wet piece of cloth after the hike, after which I used it for two more days without any mechanical or other failures.

    I also exposed it under light rain for a short period of time and it performed flawlessly throughout the photo shoot. So if you shoot in extreme conditions a lot, you can certainly count on the Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 – it will surely survive. The only thing you have to be a little careful about, is changing the lens in very dusty/windy conditions. Since the lens is equipped with the Rear Focus feature, the front of the lens never moves or extends (which is good, especially for using filters), but then the rear element moves in and out during focusing. If you really need to change the lens in such conditions, I would get used to rotating the focus ring to infinity and then changing the lens. See the short review video below for more information.

    The Nikon 35mm f/1.4G has a total of 10 optical elements with 1 aspherical element and weighs a total of 600 grams, which is almost what the Nikon 24mm f/1.4G weighs. In fact, side by side, both lenses look almost identical, as seen in the below photo:

    The lens is much bigger and heavier compared to other Nikon 35mm lenses such as Nikon 35mm f/2D and Nikon 35mm f/1.4 AIS, making it the biggest and heaviest 35mm prime produced by Nikon to date. The Nikon 35mm f/1.4 feels very solid in hands and the focus ring is conveniently located in the front of the barrel, making it easy to manually focus with a thumb and index fingers while shooting images or video. The lens comes with the “HB-59” lens hood, which is a little bulkier than the “HB-51” that comes with the 24mm f/1.4G. It snaps on the front of the lens and sits tight without wobbling like some other Nikon lens hoods.

    Here is the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G compared to other 35mm lenses, including the Zeiss Distagon 35mm ZF. 2 (from left to right – Nikon 35mm f/1.4G, Zeiss 35mm f/2, Nikon 35mm f/1.4 AIS, Nikon 35mm f/2D):

    As you can see, it is the biggest of the bunch – the Nikon 35mm f/2D is tiny in comparison.

    My biggest complaint about the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G is its non-standard 67mm filter thread. I don’t know why Nikon decided to push for 67mm instead of 77mm, but looking at the lens construction, I do not think that it was technically impossible to have a larger filter thread on this lens. The barrel size seems to be about the same as on the 24mm f/1.4G (which does have a 77mm filter thread), so all they had to do was increase the front of the lens to support 77mm filters. Since this is an expensive, pro-level lens, it should come with a standard 77mm filter thread.

    Autofocus Performance and Accuracy

    When it comes to autofocus performance, the Nikon 35mm f/1. 4G behaves very similarly to the 24mm f/1.4G and other recently announced Nikon primes. The lens snaps into focus fairly well even in low-light situations, but the speed clearly lags behind the AF-D counterparts (see the AF performance comparison in the video). If you compare AF performance to the Nikon 14-24mm or Nikon 24-70mm lenses, you will see the difference right away – the latter autofocus faster. When the lens focuses, it virtually produces no noise, due to the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology in the lens. You will only hear a short lens snap when it gets to infinity and minimum distance marks.

    As for AF accuracy, I tested the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G with Lens Align Pro to make sure that it does not front focus or back focus on both D700 and D3s I was using during the tests. So far I have been pretty lucky when it comes to autofocus accuracy with lenses, but the 35mm had a very minor front focus issue, as can be seen from the below crop:

    NIKON D3S + 35mm f/1.4 @ 35mm, ISO 200, 1/320, f/1. 4

    Once I dialed +2 in AF Fine Tune, the focus issue was taken care of and I had no problems with focusing on both camera bodies:

    NIKON D3S + 35mm f/1.4 @ 35mm, ISO 200, 1/320, f/1.4

    I tested the lens in both daylight and low-light situations and autofocus was quite accurate, even at maximum aperture of f/1.4. Focus tracking works very well, with the lens getting accurate focus almost every time in AF-C (continuous) mode. Here is a shot taken in low light, at 1/40th of a second @ f/2.8 ISO 1600 on Nikon D3s:

    NIKON D3S + 35mm f/1.4 @ 35mm, ISO 1600, 1/40, f/2.8

    Click here to see the full JPEG version of the shot (80% Quality @ 3.6 MB).

    As with any other lens, be careful when shooting at very large apertures in low light situations. If you cannot consistently get accurate focus, make sure that the lens sample you have does not have a front/back focus problem as shown above.

    Nikon 35mm f/1.4G AF-S Nikkor portrait lens. Top class

    Premium f/1.4 wide-angle lens. The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G is not a classic portrait lens, but it can still be used for group or full-length portraits. It will also be good for shooting landscapes, architecture and interiors. But it does have some special qualities that make it on our list of portrait lenses: excellent bokeh, plasticity and softness of the picture.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 640, F1.4, 1/125s, 35.0mm equiv.

    On one of Nikon’s foreign sites, I read the phrase that best describes the 35mm f/1.4G: “Bright and Brilliant in Any Light” – gorgeous and brilliant in any light. And indeed it is. But first things first.

    Construction and design

    Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G is made in the same design as all the company’s top lenses Nikon . Belonging to the upper class gives out a beautiful gold ring. The black magnesium alloy and plastic body and rubber seal (skirt) on the bayonet provide moisture protection between the camera and the lens and ensure reliable operation in harsh environments.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 500, F1.4, 1/320s, 35.0mm equiv.

    The rubber-coated manual focus ring is comfortable to use. There is also a focus switch with the designations A / M and M on the body. There are no other controls – minimalism in everything.

    The construction of the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G is monolithic, all of its external elements remain stationary during operation, nothing extends. The optical scheme of the lens consists of 10 elements in 7 groups. The design uses a single aspherical lens coated with Nano Crystal, as indicated by the golden letter “N”, which is located on the body. The diaphragm consists of 9rounded petals, which should have a positive effect on the softness of the bokeh.

    An ultrasonic drive is responsible for focusing, which should ensure its speed and accuracy. The minimum focusing distance is 0.3m, which makes it easier to shoot in tight spaces.

    A AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G weighs about 600g, which is very similar to lenses from other manufacturers. It will not work here to reduce the weight: high optical quality requires a large amount of glass.

    Lens in action

    When the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4 is in the hands, it feels too heavy. But this feeling disappears a few minutes after the start of shooting. With a large professional camera, you get a great balance. However, the lens turned out to be not very convenient for my hand: part of the hand constantly rested against the lower edge of the camera, which caused some discomfort. Apparently, for my hand, it turned out to be quite short, but these are already personal features.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 320, F1.4, 1/200s, 35.0mm equiv.

    The AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G is equipped with an ultrasonic motor for fast and precise focusing. The autofocus drive really works silently, as the manufacturer claims. As for speed, you will never even think about it. The speed of autofocus is at a height, the run time from MDF to infinity is less than a second. Shooting action scenes with tracking autofocus is no problem.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 100, F1.4, 1/80s, 35.0mm equiv.

    When shooting a portrait, it is enough to get the focus area on the face of the model, and then the lens will do everything by itself. In the event of a focus error, you can always correct it manually using the A/M function, which maintains constant manual focus control.

    The percentage of empty runs back and forth is reduced to almost zero. Misses due to the fault of automation occur quite rarely, as a rule, in cases where the focus point falls on the border between the subject and the background.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 500, F1.4, 1/160s, 35.0mm equiv.

    The minimum focusing distance is 30 cm. Combined with the 35 mm focal length, it does not allow you to shoot at a large scale, but it is sufficient for most genres where shooting very small objects is not required.

    Bokeh

    When it comes to bokeh, the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G can surprise you with a soft image, which is much appreciated among lenses of this focal length, as wide-angle lenses have traditionally had a harsh pattern.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 400, F2.2, 1/80s, 35.0mm equiv.

    The lines in the bokeh area do not double. Single highlights have a moderately even filling, without pronounced “onion rings”, however, some inhomogeneities inside them are still noticeable. The border on the edge of the highlight is not pronounced, and this ensures the softness of the blur. The effect of scales does not occur even on very provocative subjects. The strengths of the lens, I would say, retain the shape of the highlights when apertured: at f / 2.8 they are as round as at f / 1.4. Let’s say thank you for this 9-petal rounded diaphragm.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 400, F2.5, 1/60s, 35.0mm equiv.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 400, F1.4, 1/125s, 35.0mm eq c.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 500, F1.4, 1/160s, 35. 0mm eq c.

    As befits an expensive prime lens, it separates shots very gently, so the picture does not look drawn in a graphics editor. The depth of the plot can be traced throughout the frame, you want to look at the image for a long time in order to read it completely.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 320, F2.5, 1/80s, 35.0mm equiv.

    Bokeh is not the only advantage of this model. When shooting, the sharpness is really mesmerizing. Already at f/1.4 the lens is sharp in the center of the frame. Its resolution is enough for a 36-megapixel Nikon D810 matrix. At the same time, there is a natural decrease in sharpness from the center to the periphery. So, the edges of the frame have detail acceptable for large-format printing, while the corners look noticeably weaker, while they contain traces of both spherical and chromatic aberrations. And yet, f / 1.4 is absolutely a working aperture here, especially when it comes to portraiture.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 100, F1.4, 1/25s, 35.0mm equiv.

    Aperturing enhances edge and corner detail. The edge of the frame compares favorably already at f / 2, the situation with aberrations also improves. But still, to achieve landscape sharpness, it is desirable to resort to a stronger aperture. Smooth sharpness across the frame is f/8.

    If you are interested in portraiture, then you can get enough detail for this genre in the entire range of apertures, except for extremely small values ​​of the f/16 order – diffraction begins to affect. This is important to remember when shooting in the studio.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 500, F2, 1/400s, 35.0mm equiv.

    As for vignetting, it is certainly present, but even with an open aperture it does not spoil the impression of the picture. The camera itself copes with vignetting, and in JPEG you will not see it. As for files RAW , it is easy to get rid of vignetting in any converter without noticeable harm to image quality.

    Chromatic aberrations

    Chromatic aberrations on this lens are pronounced. With an open aperture, they are easy to detect in the blur zone, where they appear throughout the frame, but in the sharp zone, on the contrary, they are practically absent. After f / 2, their level decreases significantly. Unfortunately, it will also not be possible to completely get rid of them in bokeh, but they are part of the optical pattern. And in general, such a blur looks harmonious.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 400, F1.4, 1/1250s, 35.0mm equiv.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 320, F1.4, 1/160s, 35.0mm eq c.

    Conclusions

    The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G is not quite a standard lens for portrait photography. To make a large portrait, you will have to approach the model almost back to back – a relatively large viewing angle affects. This is not very comfortable and provokes perspective distortions.

    AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G is best for indoor or full length portraits. Thanks to soft bokeh and high sharpness at wide aperture, it can shoot in any conditions and get a beautiful, “expensive” picture. It is worth mentioning about dust and moisture protection. Although I work primarily in the studio, the urge to get out and shoot can come at any moment. Let’s not forget that this lens is also very good for reporting, landscape and travel!

    After working with the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1. 4G , the only drawback I found was the presence of chromatic aberration. They are noticeable both in the bokeh zone and in the sharpness zone at an open aperture. Aperture significantly reduces their level. This model has no other serious disadvantages.

    NIKON D810 / Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Settings: ISO 500, F2.5, 1/80s, 35.0mm equiv.

    I would recommend this lens to people who travel frequently and want to capture the highlights of their journey. It is also ideal for those who shoot group portraits and portraits in the interior, as such shooting is indispensable without a relatively wide angle. And the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G with its high image quality will prove to be the magic wand here, which will make any scene more beautiful due to the depth, volume and plasticity of high-aperture optics.

    Pros:

    – high sharpness from an open aperture in the center;
    – smooth and beautiful bokeh;
    – dust and moisture protection;
    – fast autofocus;
    – relatively low level of chromatic aberrations in the sharpness zone.

    Cons:

    – on the open aperture there are chromatic aberrations in the bokeh;
    – at an open aperture, a decrease in sharpness around the periphery is noticeable.

    The lens can be purchased on our website at a discount with a gold card. And if you don’t have a Pixel24 Gold Card yet, now is the time to get one. Go to the product card, find out even more information from the manufacturer and buy this wide-angle lens with its undeniably high quality indicators.

    Camera Lenses

    Camera lenses are available in different types and styles for amateurs through professional photographers. When considering a new lens, think through the purpose of getting it first. Consider the types of features that you would most prefer in a new camera lens.

    What are the types of camera lenses?

    Camera lenses fall into one of two categories. Prime lenses are set to one specific focal length, and they are normally faster than zoom lenses along with having faster maximum apertures. They also tend to weigh less. Many photographers choose to upgrade to fast prime lenses because of their ability to let a lot of light in. There are many different types of zoom lenses including:

    • Standard: These general-purpose full frame lenses usually offer wide-angle possibilities along with moderate telephoto options. A typical standard offers a range from 16 to 85 millimeters with an F-stop range from 3.5 to 5.6 or a range from 17 to 55 millimeters with an F-stop of 2.8.
    • Telephoto: These lenses allow you to get closer to your subject. A typical one offers a range from 55 to 200 millimeters with an F-stop range from 4.5 to 5.6 or a range from 75 to 300 millimeters with an F-stop range from 4 to 56.
    • Superzoom: These lenses combine the benefits of a telephoto lens and a standard lens. A typical superzoom lens offers a range from 55 to 200 millimeters with an F-stop range from 4.5 to 5.6 or a range from 75 to 300 millimeters with an F-stop range from 4. 5 to 6.
    • Macro: These fixed-focal- length lenses are designed to let you get close to small objects. A typical macro lens is 60 millimeters with an F-stop of 2.8.

    Do lenses offer auto-focus?

    Many lenses offer auto-focus with different manufacturers using unique systems. It is essential to choose the one that is right for your camera body. Choices include:

    • Screwdrive: These lenses rely on the cameras body to do the focusing.
    • Micromotor: These lenses use a DC motor and a gear train to focus the image.
    • Linear Stepper: These lenses have a brushless motor, making them a quiet option.
    • Ultrasonic-type: These silent lenses can be overridden with full-time manual focus. Some companies refer to these lenses as hypersonic, silent wave, or silent drive.

    How do you choose a new lens?

    The process of choosing a new lens is quite simple:

    • Select lens mounting system: Look in the manual to find the lens mounting system as different systems use various methods to mount lenses.

    7 Things to Know Before Buying and Installing 12V LED Strip Lights

    Flexible LED strip lights are used all over the world in various industrial, commercial and residential projects. LED strip lighting is popular among many Architects and Lighting Designers due to the improvements in efficiency, color options and brightness. The biggest draw is how easy they are to install. Their flexibility, low-profile and helpful accessories make them the most popular LED strip for the at home DIY types. With these LED strips, a homeowner can design like a professional with the right supplies and just an hour or two.

    There are many options for LED strip lights with no simple ‘one size fits all’ standard to go by. This LED Strip Resource Guide will educate newcomers and experts alike on finding the best LED strip lights for the job and how to use them while overcoming common installation hold-ups.

    This Guide will educate newcomers and experts alike on finding the best LED strip lights for the job and how to use them while overcoming common installation hold-ups.

    LED Light Strips: What Makes them so Special?

    LED strip lights, also known as LED tape lights or LED ribbon lights, are known for their low-profile size and flexibility. Efficient LEDs sit on a 10mm wide circuit board, offered in 3ft to 16. 4 ft lengths. Flexible LED strip lights have many features that make them easy to use in a variety of situations:

    Cut-to-size – Cutting LED strips is very simple thanks to the cut lines along the strips. At each cut point there is a black line with copper solder pads that sit on each side. The copper solder pads make it so each strip piece is addressable even after being cut. This makes it possible to connect LED strips together or connect the strip in a different area of your home.

    Flexible LED strip with Adhesive – The LED strips have a 3M adhesive backing for simple mounting options. The low profile, flexible strip has a peel-off backing which exposes the 3M adhesive, making for a simple peel-and-stick install.

    Waterproof or Non-Waterproof – LED strip lights are not limited to indoor projects. The waterproof LED strip lights are IP65 rated with a silicone resin material that protects the strip components from dust and moisture. The waterproof LED lights are a little more expensive but are a must for any project that is outdoors or close to water.

    12 volt LED lights – The LED strip lights need 12VDC power input to run. This will require an AC/DC transformer for in home use, but makes wiring the strips through the house a lot safer. Batteries also output DC power, so it is easy to make a battery powered LED light with these flex strips.


    7 Things to Know Before Installing LED Strip Lights

    LED flex strips are great for all kinds of projects, but sometimes it is hard to know where to start. Follow this 7 step guide if you are stuck not knowing where to begin. The guide shows the various LED Strip options and and what to plan for in order to make your do-it-at-home LED strip lighting a complete success!

    LED Strip Density = Brightness

    The density of an LED light strip means how many LEDs are in a set area. For LED flex strips, density is measured in  ‘LEDs per Meter’. The Standard Density strip has 30 LEDs/M whereas the High-Density has 60 LEDs/M. A higher density strip equates to a higher quality, brighter light. The table below shows the differences between the standard and high density strips. Take note of the Lumen outputs as well as the differences in cut lengths and the max run length for each.

    Density # of LEDs Lumens Wattage
    (per Reel)
    Cuttable Max. Run
    Stand. (SD) 30/Meter 540/Meter 27 Watts Every 4″ 32.8 Ft.
    High (HD) 60/Meter 1080/M 40 Watts Every 2″ 16.4 Ft.

    A Lumen is the measurement of brightness as perceived by the human eye. Thanks to incandescent lighting, most of us use watts to measure the brightness of a light. With LEDs, Lumens are the new standard to describe light output. Lumen output is one of the most important parts of choosing LED strip lights as it will determine the type of light you will receive.

    Make sure to note how Lumens are tracked when comparing LED strips brightness . In the above table, strips are labeled as Lumens per Meter. In order to find total Lumen output just find how many Meters you will be running.

    Lumen output is one of the most important parts of choosing LED strip lights as it will determine the type of light you will receive.

    Different projects require certain amount of brightness to achieve their purpose. My advice would be to always go for the brighter option and add a dimmer. Below is a helpful guide on Lumen requirements:

    • Accent or Mood Lighting – 100-300 Lumens/ft.
    • Under Cabinet Lighting – 175-360 Lumens/ft.
    • Task lighting w/ higher distance from source – 300-450 Lumens/ft.
    • Bedroom, Cove Lighting – 180-500 Lumens/ft.

    Color: RGB Multicolor, UV, Colors, White CCT Range

    LED strip color depends on personal preference. RGB LED strips are a good option for those that like some variety and color effects. RGB strip lights are color changing strips that are great for accent lighting all around the home. They use red, green and blue diodes so that they can be mixed to create many different colors. If you are using RGB strips just make sure you use a 3 channel controller from the dimming section of this guide.

    There is an Ultra Violet (UV) version of the strips available. This is a great option for UV applications or for making your own black light!

    The strips are also available in single colors of: Red, Green, Blue, Yellow and White (3000-6500K CCT).

    CCT stands for Correlated Color Temperature which is the color temperature of light, measured in degrees Kelvin (K). The temperature rating of an LED strip directly affects what the light looks like. Look at the photos below for reference. Warm White is what we call 3000K which gives off an orange or yellowish appearance. As we increase degrees Kelvin the color changes from yellow to off white to natural white and then to bluish white which is known as Cool White.

    So which color do I choose? Look at the below room with Warm White, Neutral White and Cool White Strips. Notice how color temperature of a strip light affects the look of the entire room? This totally depends on personal preference and the overall style and feel you want the room to give off.

    Warm White creates an inviting, cozy area. It is generally used in rooms where everyone gathers to visit or relax (living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, etc.).

    Neutral or Natural White creates a natural, daylight effect. This is the best selling strip as it mimics natural light and is comfortably used anywhere in the home. This is our most popular strip for under cabinet LED lighting.

    Cool White complements contemporary and modern styles, casting a bright, fresh glow. Cool white is great for task lighting as it is a brighter, more focused light. The bright, cool colors are used the most in bathrooms, kitchens and work spaces.

    Length of Strip

    It is best to outline your whole project to see how many feet of strip you will be using total. This gives you an idea of what to buy and the cost to do so. The LED strip lights are available in 3ft. increments all the way up to a full reel (16.4 ft.). It is important to find out if you want to purchase reel lengths and cut them down to size, or if it would be beneficial to have smaller lengths already cut for you.

    At this stage, draw out your project. Plan where the strip lights are needed, how they will be connected, and if they will all come back to the same power supply or have separate power supplies. This step helps greatly as you progress through the next few steps.

    LED Strip Wattage and Powering

    What type of power do the LED strips need? The LED strips always need 12 volt DC input.

    That is the easy part, the next step is finding the wattage. With the below chart, this should not be too terrible if you have already chosen your strip density and your total length.

    Detailed Wattage Table for 12V LED Strips
    Length (Ft.) Length (Meters) 30 LEDs/M
    Wattage
    60 LEDs/M
    Wattage
    1 0.3048 2.4 4.8
    2 0.6096 4.8 9.6
    3 0.9144 7.2 14.4
    6 1.8288 12.15 20.8
    9 2.7432 17.1 27.2
    12 3.6576 22.05 33.6
    16.4 (full reel) 5 27 40

    If you are running more than one power supply just note the length of strip that will be running off each to find the power supply size you will need.

    LED Power Supply Options:

    • Plug-in Adapter – Plug straight into your wall to power your LED strip lights.
    • Hardwire Power Supplies – Directly wire in between your line voltage wiring and your LED Strips.
    • Dimmable Power Supply – Want to dim from a common residential dimmer like a Lutron or Leviton? This is the power option for you!
    • Batteries – Find a 12V battery pack or use an 8 cell battery holder.

    Wiring and Connecting LED Strips

    This is where the sketch from before will come in handy to start considering where you will be running all the strips. Was the plan to run all the strips together in a long run? If your total length needed is over the maximum run length of the strip (32.8 ft. for SD and 16.4 ft. for HD) then you will need to run parallel wires from your power source to the separate strips.

    As our sketch shows, sometimes you will want to power strips coming from different directions into one common power supply. In this instance you will already be running parallel wires.

    Wiring LED strips when you are dealing with multiple reels of strips can be tough but we have a powering and wiring guide that you can follow to map out your LED strip light setup.

    Wiring Accessories: LED Strip connectors and splitters

    Connecting LED strips will be necessary for any strip project. We have some helpful accessories and guides to complete any LED strip connection.

    Soldering wire and your own connections? Make sure to follow our soldering guide and our recommended wire for the strips is found here.

    How to Connect LED Strips without soldering? Our EZ Click Strip Connectors work great for connecting strips end to end, running gaps in between LED strips or running around tight corners. Our full LED strip connector guide shows how to use these to make connections that will come in handy for any strip project.

    How to connect multiple LED strips to one power source? LED strip splitters make it possible to plug multiple strips into one power supply with ease! Strip splitters are available with 2, 3 or 4 output channels.

    Dimming LED Strip Lights

    LED strip lights are typically dimmed with in-line pulse width modulation dimmers. These dimmers go on the 12 volt side of the system and wire in between the strips like shown.

    PWM dimmers are popular as they can work with any transformer or battery source, they do not need a power supply that is listed as dimmable. PWM dimming offers smooth control from the dimmest to brightest settings. They are affordable and easy to set up, making them the top option for dimming LED strip lights.

    These simple dimmers are available in both WiFi and Remote Control options. The WiFi compatible dimmers work straight from a smartphone app and can be voice controlled with Google Home or Amazon Echo (Alexa) devices.

    Some homeowners already have a central dimming system for their areas. In these cases, the owner wants to control the lights with the AC dimmers they already have in place. If you want to use an AC dimmer like this then you will need a dimmable power supply as described here.

    RGB Controllers (WiFi / Remote / Bluetooth) – If you have a color changing RGB LED strip then you NEED a 3-channel RGB controller. These controllers control the Red, Green and Blue channels to mix colors and create the color changing effects of the strip. Without this unit, your RGB LED strips will not operate correctly so always remember to purchase one if you are using the Multicolor LED strips.

    Mounting LED Strips

    The adhesive on the LED strip lights is very helpful in mounting but sometimes there is more to be desired. As with most adhesives, it does not bond well with some surfaces and may need to be reinforced over time. In these situations, use one of the following:

    • Extra Adhesive Tape – 3M tape that you put on the surface before the strip to double the bond.
    • LED Strip Mounting clips – Mounting brackets for strips

    Mounting track is another great option for those that want a professional finish. These aluminum extrusions house your light strips and have everything you need to mount. The LED strips adhere to the bottom of the track with a UV protected lens that slides over the top to diffuse the light.

    Follow this guide to mount your LED strips properly!

    As you know, the size of the LEDs on the strip and the density of their installation directly affect such performance indicators of the strip as its brightness and, more importantly, the power consumption per unit length. In this regard, the 12W LED strip is great for organizing local lighting, but if you want the whole room to be flooded with light, you should choose something with higher characteristics.

    In other words, the scope of such devices is somewhat limited. Most often they are used for decorating interiors and architecture, as well as creating additional lighting. The last point implies the so-called atmospheric lighting, which is not suitable for work or any other active activity, but will allow you to create a pleasant semi-dark environment for relaxation.

    In interior decoration, you can use those models that have not been provided with any additional protection against the negative effects of external factors. Frankly, even open-type devices are suitable here, provided, of course, that the air in the room is not too humid. Otherwise, the main structure will need a waterproof shell. And in order to safely place the device outside the building, it must have one of the highest protection classes.

    It should be noted that tapes with a power of 12 watts are characterized by an average brightness of the glow compared to other models, as well as an average level of power consumption. In a sense, they are an intermediate and compromise option between low-power devices, which feature energy efficiency and dim light, as well as high-power devices, bright and costly.

    If you want to know the total power consumption of an LED strip, multiply 12 watts – its power per meter – by its total length in meters.

    ERA LED strips for 12 and 24 volts: what is the difference?

    ERA has more than 50 positions of LED strips for 12 and 24 volts. All of them help to organize high-quality and beautiful illumination of the space, and, if necessary, a system of full-fledged main lighting of the room. In this material, we will explain the difference between ERA LED strips with a voltage of 12 and 24 volts.

    In ERA LED strips for 12 volts , three LEDs are connected in series in one chain. In such a tape flows twice as much electric current as in 24 volt LED strips – at a lower voltage and the same power. So that the 12 volt LED strip board does not heat up, should limit the length of the section to 5 meters.

    In ERA LED strips for 24 volts are connected in series in one chain six LED diodes. Two times less electric current flows in these tapes. LEDs heat up less, which means they last longer. In practice, 24-volt LED strips can be connected in series in circuits up to 10 meters long. However, the recommendation, according to the instructions, remains the same – the backlight length is up to 5 meters.

    12 VOLT ERA LED STRIP: BENEFITS

    In the lighting market the most popular are 12 volt LED strips – they can be found in almost every shopping center or electrical store. 12 volts is the available voltage, most batteries supply it. Special power supplies that lower the voltage also most often give a result of 12 volts.

    In this regard, the scope of 12-volt LED strips is very wide. – lighting of vehicles, advertising structures and signs, play areas, workplaces, household lighting.

    Another advantage of 12 volt LED strips is convenient cutting ratio . Any LED strip can only be cut in places between sections of LED elements. In 12-volt strips, the sections consist of only 3 LEDs (instead of 6, as in 24-volt ones). Accordingly, the length of each section will be less – from 2. 5 to 5 cm, depending on the model. This means that you will be able to highlight a specific area of ​​​​space as accurately as possible, the error can be only a few centimeters.

    Among the advantages of ERA tapes for 12 volts – is the safety of . The voltage in them is 2 times lower than in 24-volt ones. Even if you accidentally touch the wires or contacts of such tapes with wet hands, you will hardly feel such a low voltage. NB: all exposed live parts of the backlight must be insulated in any case!

    24 VOLT ERA LED STRIP: WHAT IS GOOD?

    24-volt ERA LED strips consume half the current, which makes it possible for to organize the backlight with thin wires . A copper cable with a cross section of 1.5 mm² can be safely replaced with a cable with a cross section of only 0.75 mm².

    Less current reduces losses – create longer illumination! Lighting uniformity is also improved – ERA 24 volt LED strips retain brightness along their entire length.

    ERA 9 brand 24V LED strips0270 allow more efficient use of controllers and dimmers. The standard controller is designed to work with both 12 and 24 volts. Due to the lower current in the 24 volt tapes, the controller can control 2 times more powerful backlight.

    Choose 12 volt LED strips if:

    • Create indoor home lighting.
    • You do not need to illuminate the entire space, but only highlight its details.
    • Architectural accuracy of backlighting without unnecessary “tails” or underlit areas is important to you.
    • There is no 220V socket near the illuminated area and you will power the LED strip from the battery.
    • You need a 200% security guarantee!

    Choose ERA 24 volt LED strips if:

    • You want to use the LED strip as your main lighting, not just a backlight.
