It's big. Really big. At 110 inches (279.4 cm), Japan Victor Corporation's (JVC) HD-110MH80 takes the crown as the world's largest high definition TV set. Everything about it is big: it is 3 feet deep, weighs 728 pounds, and will cost about $53,000 (USD). The HD-110MH80 offers 1920x1080 resolution, 1080p images, and 5000:1 contrast ratio. This behemoth goes on sale in July, but deliveries will start in October. Although impressive, it would be a major pain to move one of these things to another room, let alone to another home. However, it is probably safe to assume that whoever can afford this... Read more...
Hello Everyone.  Marco here to let you all know that we've just posted a new article in which we evaluate the features, image quality, and overall performance of Autumnwave's OnAir USB HDTV Creator. Unlike most other analog / digital TV tuners for the PC, this device is able to receive digital HD signals over a cable connection and not just over the air with a clunky antenna.

When you work with computer hardware virtually everyday for years on end, it's easy to become desensitized as to how much technology really has changed.  Take my history here at Hothardware.com as an example.  It was October of 2000 when I submitted my first article and since that day, my artilce tally has reach triple digit status.  Back then, Intel was getting ready for a November release of their  Pentium 4 , ATI rolled out their first Radeon , and NVIDIA was pushing the GeForce 2 .  Microsoft's Windows ME and...

Looking for the best HDTVs out there this holiday season?  Wired has your 411 from 32 inches to the mondo 62" DLP sets from Toshiba. "Everything-in-a-box systems don't usually inspire superlatives, but Sony's unprecedented TV-home theater combo is a real showstopper. When closed, the TAV-L1 plays audio through a superstylish flat-panel speaker. When you're ready for video, press a button and the motorized speaker elegantly drops down to reveal a 32-inch flat-panel screen." Only 32 inches?  Naahh...  I'd say go with a 52" set.  What's another 20" between... Read more...
Those of you who are thinking about adding an DTV tuner to your rigs will be interested in this review at HTPC News.  They evaluate the VBox Cat's Eye DTA-150 HDTV tuner and ended up linking it very much.  It's kind of a simple looking card, but it got the job done. "DTV is absolutely amazing the first time you lay eyes on it. In fact, it is shocking how much better it will look over standard definition broadcasts. Of course nothing in life is a cakewalk. Poor signal reception, driver problems and hardware compatibility... Read more...
If you're on the hunt for a high-end(but quiet) video card, make sure not to look past ASUS's 7800GT Top Silent card. We've had a chance to inspect ASUS's unique silent cooler design before, and it is quite impressive. Does the cooling performance carry over to a more powerful card like a 7800GT though? "Today we are going to introduce to you a graphics card from ASUS based on Nvidia GeForce 7800 GT and equipped with their own patented passive cooling system aka SilentCool. Let's try to find out if they managed to create a truly high-end and silent graphics solution."... Read more...
When LCD screens were first introduced they were plagued by many problems, but they also had some advantages over CRT monitors. LCD's were lighter, thinner, and used less power.  And so they caught on and the technology incrementally improved. Early generations were limited to lower resolutions, tight viewing angles, really slow response times, and they carried a hefty price tag. The screen size was also limited because of the early production technology. The main market for them at that point was laptop screens, as the LCD technology offered exactly what was needed in that space. Later on... Read more...
Asus stepped up to us with one of the first third party Radeon X800 XL boards to hit the market after ATi's recent launch. We gave it our standard run-down in typical HH fashion with benchmarks galore.   Have a look-see...... Read more...
  Over the years, Asus has built a solid reputation for manufacturing high-quality products, that consistently match or surpass competing products in terms of both performance, features and quality. It is with that kind of backdrop that we present today's review of the Asus Extreme AX800XL.  Based on the ATI Radeon X800 XL VPU, Asus has a solid footing to begin with. The X800 XL is based on the X800 XT VPU, so it comes with the same number of pixel pipelines as its predecessor (16), but it's built on a more advanced .11 micron manufacturing process and comes clocked at lower speeds. ...

Xbox 360 Sneak Peak @ HardOCP: "We all know that the Xbox 360 will be a gaming console, but did you know its abilities are going to reach far beyond playing games? The Xbox 360 has changed the Xbox from a gaming console into a lifestyle device." ASUS Extreme AX800XL-2DTV @ Viperlair: "Performance in our tests was pretty good. In all the game tests, except Doom 3, the x800XL did very nicely providing playable frame rates in basically all situations. Doom 3 is playable at 1024*768 with 4X AA and 16X ansiotropic filtering, but going higher isn't too recommended." Point of View... Read more...

Hey gang! I think a lot of us are winding down from a sports laden week, getting some much needed rest. There were some long baseball games that kept some of us up into the wee hours several times. I know I got the best night sleep of the week last night and it was really needed. To top that off, today my wife and I are going to play at the NC State Fair and relax even more. This will be my first time doing a Southern style fair, being a native NY'er. I look forward to trying some of the local food favorites like boiled peanuts, deep-fried candy bars and Barbecue. Down here, Barbecue is a food,... Read more...
