The display technology with self-luminous, organic pixels only had a very brief appearance at Hisense. After the debut TV O8B, which came on the market in 2019, OLEDs have already come to an end. This is quite astonishing, as virtually all TV manufacturers in the high-end segment are relying on OLEDs (Sony, LG, Panasonic, Philips). The reason for this decision is said to lie in the successful development of the proprietary DualCell "ULED XD" panels.

Between a 4K display and the backlight an additional LC layer in 2K resolution is applied, which increases the dimming zones to 2 million. Depending on the size of the display, the number of dimming zones should be able to be increased to up to 24 million. With DualCell technology, Hisense is able to display a bright, high-contrast and colorful image at lower prices than OLEDs.

We found that the presentation of the ULED XD models at CES 2020 was quite impressive. We would almost suspect that many visitors would have preferred dual cell technology over OLED. In combination with the Quantum Dot materials (ULED stands for Quantum Dot at Hisense), there was an impressive image presentation, subjectively speaking. Enclosed we have put together a short video to illustrate the visual impression and functionality of ULED XD technology: "We are currently focusing on making ULED XD successful due to its strong PQ (Picture Quality) performance and its added value over OLED," a Hisense representative told TechRadar in a statement.

When Windows 10 was launched in July 2015, Microsoft's plan looked like this: By the end of July 2016, limited to one year, users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 should be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free. The whole free promotion was then carried out with a lot of noise and a countdown to the second. Microsoft also lists the question about the free upgrade offer in the official Windows 10 FAQs. The official answer: "The free upgrade to Windows 10 via the "Get Windows 10" (GWX) app ended on July 29, 2016."

Microsoft is right about this, but still misleads users. What users are interested in is whether they can still get from Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10 for free. Microsoft evades in its answer and only writes that the free upgrade via GWX tool no longer works. But until today, you can legally upgrade to Windows 10 for free in other ways. There is no need for hacks or secret tips, Windows 10 simply accepts the activation keys of its predecessors.
