    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...
  • Sometimes….a TV can be too big.

    While techies, videophiles, and sports nuts will always go for the biggest, most crisp, and brightest TV, the first stipulation, the size can cause problems.  Basically I'm saying that sometimes, a TV can be too big.  *Gasps!*.  Don't believe me?  Just ask Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones whom set out with a grand vision.  The vision was to have the largest flat screen TV in the world smack dead center in his stadium.  What Jerry wants, Jerry gets.  There's only one problem: the TV is s...
  • 2 is always better than 1 [GScreen Dual-Screen Laptop]

    For most valuable or lusted after objects, two is always better than one. If one of any particular object gives you great joy, than two can only double it right? While it doesn't always work like that, I'm pretty sure the effect the GScreen Dual-Screen laptop has on you will be at least 50% more favorable than a competing single screened model. Such a design requires extra special attention be payed to the construction of the housing around the screens as even a slight bump could render th...
  • Matte display option now available on 15″ MacBook Pro

    When Apple made the decision to move to all glossy displays, many peoples' opinions ranged from upset to downright enraged. Some vowed never to buy another Apple product again. Others proclaimed they would hold out or even go as far as to get a third party to install a matte screen. Apple didn't completely give up on glossy displays however as the high end 17" MacBook Pro has had a $50 matte display option since the unibody's were launched late last year. However a quick stop by Apple's we...
  • Philips continues their fetish with light - Light Frame

    While many display/monitor manufacturers focus on the more common features of said product such as resolution, brightness levers, contrast ratio, etc., Phillips seems to have a certain fascination with their in house added feature - ambilight.  While this feature doesn't really do anything to improve the image of your TV, it is marketed as a feature that helps you emerse yourself just a tad more than if you were watching the same thing on a plane flat screen.  The extra colors are supposed...

Such unpleasant and life altering occasions will soon be a thing of the past thanks to Kent Display's new "Electronic Skin". W...

    If you are the type that is in love with super slim TV's and have a thing for contrast ratios with 7 digits, a 100%+ color gamut, and Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolutions, the new same TV's we saw at CES 2008 appear to now be "production ready", meaning we could finally start to see some honest to goodness OLED displays that are actually large enough to use as TV's! How much will these svelt 8.9 milimeter TV's set you back? I'm sure when we learn the price, the sound of your wallet puking will be...
  • Hitatchi brining LCD back to relevance by way of more pixels [Eye Strain]
    by Mike
    Posted June 1st, 2009 at 8:29 am
    While eye candy lovers drool over such technologies as FED and SED (which are sadly pretty much dead) and OLED still requires a heft toll be taken on your wallet, LCD's still enjoy supreme reign in the mobile display world. Hitatchi realizes that 480 x 360 just doesn't pack the "WOW" factor that it did even just 1-2 years ago. Hitatchi however still sees a market for higher quality, higher resolution LCD screens for mobile devices. Just how much better will Hitatchi's mini-LCD's be? (m...
  • Pantel outdoor HDTVs evade mother nature, launch an all out assault on your wallet.
    by Mike
    Posted May 12th, 2009 at 2:47 pm
    When you hear the words "weather proof HDTV" you instantly think of a group of guys drooling at the thought of being able to tailgate/sit outside wherever their little sports loving hearts desire and watch their most beloved game regardless of the current weather conditions. If you just so happened to be in the market for such a device, you might want to give Pantel a look as they have some very capable units. Usually outdoor grade electronics that can withstand the punishment that mother n...
  • Canon bringing SED TV technology back into focus?
    by Mike
    Posted May 7th, 2009 at 4:13 am
    If you can recall a year or two ago, (I know, reach deep into the depths that is your mind....I'm just kidding you 'ol bear trap you), SED technology was a TV technology with a bright future ahead looking to become the dominating standard, if not at least a worthy competitor to OLED, and the now defunct FED standards with it's extremely nice image quality.  Then drama, greed, and confusion took place as various partners dropped support and funding.  The most recent casualty being FED as So...
  • Apple + LG = Exclusive 5 year display deal?
    by Mike
    Posted January 12th, 2009 at 1:51 pm
    Apple is reported to have signed a  deal with LG in order to secure a steady supply of displays through the next 5 years.  Does this mean new cinema displays with LG technology built inside? Will Apple get exclusive first/only rights to certain LG displays? Not sure.  Apple has pre-payed for components before.  In 2005, Apple payed a totla of $1.25 billion to Hynix, Intel, Micron, Samsung, and Toshiba in order to pad supplies of NAND memory chips.  Doing this has allowed Apple to hav...
  • Samsung unveils LED/3D displays

    Posted January 8th, 2009 at 1:29 pm
    Today at CES, Samsung announced 2 new LCD monitors, the P2370L and 2233RZ.  The P2370L uses a white LED backlight instead of the more common and less efficient flourecent type.  Better color results as well as a super high contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1 are the benefits of the LED.  The monitors run at 1080p and support connections of DVI-A and DVI-D.  Expect this monitor to ship by the end of first quarter and set you back a cool $399. The 2233RZ takes a different approach to giving yo...
