Editor's Notes

November 13, 2018:

The OLED offerings in this category are easily among the best TVs on the market right now, though Samsung's QLED model rivals them in color performance if not black depth. Samsung's Frame model also gained a spot due to its unique design and features.

After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
