    Getting the most of HD content on your computer means having a HD monitor -- hard concept to grasp, I know. However, with all of those extra pixels often comes a fairly high pricetag. Not to mention, powering all of those pixels, especially those demanding top performance from their computer hardware know that the whole shebang can be quite costly. For now, going multi-monitor means spending excess sums of cash on grossly overpriced cables just to connect a monitor(s) to your computer. Thei...
  • 3D glasses to tag team that nifty 3D TV you just bought priced out of relevance for most — $75+

    Isn't it funny how HD's dominance as "the" TV tech to have was rather short lived? In some senses I guess it isn't that short. Looking at the bigger picture however again suggests otherwise. Overly philosophical theories aside, 3D TV is going to explode in the next few years. HD was cool and all, making the best of what a 2D picture could look like, but 3D is an entirely different animal. A fine, sexy, killing machine of an animal I would wager to say. One of the obvious tools the 3D a...

    I don't personally own an HP TouchSmart PC. I've used one though and came away overall impressed. It's a nifty idea though not one I'd want to make use of daily. Some things I just prefer to do with an old fashioned mouse and keyboard, joystick sometimes makes grand appearance. The real problem with the TouchSmart is that it only senses up to two fingers. The reason behind such woes stem from the sheer size of the display which forced HP to rely on older optical sensor based technology for ...

    Remember that massive HD TV that just mere months ago was winning praise from tech enthusiasts and sports buffs alike for it's bigger than life size? The glory of being number one is often short lived. And as we've learned from Tiger Wood's recent unfolding, any long stay at the top often ends unfavorably and scandalous. But let's get back to tech shall we? That massive HD monitor at Cowboy central had already conquered all other HD displays in the world so why not try for another award -...
  • 2880 x 900 curved display by Ostendo beckons your visual cortex

    Anyone thinking their multi-monitor setup is "the king" needs to get familiar with the 2880 x 900 43" monster from Ostendo. As you can see above, (careful, close your mouths...) the screen is very large, curved, and all around a technological beautiful thing to look at. I mean I wouldn't mind staring at it's clean glass surface for hours on end. To put the sheer width of the 32:10 screen in perspective: 180% wider than 16:9 240% wider than 4:3 Those thinking that Ostendo is playing on t...
  • Philips and the “LED Pro” TV

    Being a tech guru isn't for the faint of heart. Many will call us lazy, good for nothing, society sapping individuals because all we care about is personal gratification. To some extent, they're true. But we lovers of the gadget are so much deeper than that. I mean, we're not dumb by any stretch. A perfect example is captured in all of the cryptic phrases and labels manufacturers conjur up. Things such as 1080p, WUXGA, HDMI, etc. mean absolutely nothing to the normal human. But as technol...
  • 6-port mini display port ATI 5870 has us seeing sextuplets!

    Even we bloggers aren't always gifted with the latest and greatest. Sometimes we have to buy it ourselves and wait just like everyone else before we can get our hands on the gadgets we so desperately crave. Gaming is a great way to relax the mind, unwind, and scrub off some stress. A big, beautiful display does wonders for us nerds and gamers a like. But looks aren't everything. To a gamer, the more pixels they have means the more they can see. Until display port came along, hardware for c...
  • Is Samsung’s “Needle Thin” LCD too small?
    by Mike
    Posted October 26th, 2009 at 7:07 am
    At what point does thiness cross the line from novelty/cool to being "too" thin/small. While I know that one day, TV's will be a mere film sprayed onto any surface we want, current technology isn't quite there yet. The next best thing of course being super slim variations. I also understand that you have to start somewhere. But the the needle tv isn't anywhere near my "gotta have it" list with a disappointing 5,000:1 contrast ratio. At least the 120 Hz refresh is promising. Again, I know that ...
  • Power saving facial recognition on Hitachi TV’s tracks your eyesight, turns of TV when you’re not watching.

    ** Facial recognition technology starts at 45 seconds in... Buying an energy efficient TV and turning off the TV whenever you leave the room, no matter how short the time are just two things we can do to save electricity. A new application of facial recognition technology by Hitachi will soon give us another choice with a futuristic flare. The technology was shown off at CEATEC. As you can gather, the facial recognition tracks where your eyes are focused. Focusing on the TV keeps it on. O...
  • Going above and beyond: Acer releases S243HL LCD featuring 8,000,000:1 contrast ratio
    by Mike
    Posted October 23rd, 2009 at 8:26 am
    Think your paltry 50,000:1 desktop monitor is hot stuff? Sit down. It ain't got nothin' on Acer's latest beast -- the 24-inch S243HL. The marketing pizazz behind this monster is of course that insanely high contrast ratio. Reaching such a number comes by way of a white LED being employed instead of the traditional LED's that get stuffed in current displays. Physical size is also impressive measuring in at a "where did it go" 0.57 inches. Honorable mentions include 1080p (1,920 x 1,080...

    Think you have the biggest, baddest TV in town? Sit down because you don't have anything against Toshiba's latest beast waiting in the wings. The REGZA 55X1 LED TV has a host of specs that will make any videophile and sports junkie drool. So what about these specs? 240 Hz LED backlight Cell processor (same as PS3) 5,000,000 : 1 dynamic contrast ratio 1250cd/m² 7-speaker sound bar Opera-based HD web browser external 3TB hard drive for time-shifting up to 26 hours of TV from 8 differ...

    Take any mind blowing, wallet raping, eye melting gaming rig or big screen you can think of and throw it out of your mind. AMD's up and coming new hotness, graphics cards packin' the DirectX11 moniker have some truly impressive muscle under the hood. How much muscle? Well, lets start with the fact that the new cards will support Display Port technology allowing you to daisy chain monitor after monitor via USB. Even better is that the new DX11 AMD cards also support running said daisy chain...
