Get out those wallets. Dell’s visually enticing 30-inch UltraSharp 4K OLED Monitor UP3017Q is now on sale. According to Dell, the monitor provides “incredibly realistic imagery that’s unlike any other panel”. Dell’s first 4K UltraSharp offers a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The 30 panel comprises some 8 million pixels, a color depth of 1.07 billion colors, and quick image transition response time of 0.1 milliseconds (black to white). Dell notes that, “Every color onscreen is intensely rich and vibrant against true black, and enhanced by individually lit pixels on an expansive 30-inch... Read more...
Once you have experienced an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio monitor, it can be hard going back to using a more traditional 16:9 aspect ratio display. That added horizontal real-estate comes in handy for multitasking. It can also be great for gaming, allowing for a wider field of view without investing in dual monitors. Now imagine what it would be like using a 32:9 aspect ratio display! It does not exist yet, but soon will thanks to Samsung. Samsung has been teasing a 49-inch display with a 32:9 aspect ratio since the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year. In just a few months from now, it... Read more...
A cumulative update for Windows 10 is currently making the rounds and that is potentially bad news for gamers with multi-monitor setups. Microsoft lists a couple of known issues that are tied to the update, one of which can cause abnormal behavior when running 3D rendering apps (mostly games) on systems with more than one monitor. Such users might see delays or clipped content on their multi-monitor setups.There are a couple of workarounds that Microsoft suggests, neither of which is all that satisfactory. The first is to run the game or app in Windows mode rather than fire it up in full screen... Read more...
An increasing number of smart devices are headed to market as the Internet of Things (IoT) takes hold. That includes everyday appliances—perhaps one day your toaster will pull images from the web to bake scorch them into your morning toast—along with more traditional electronics devices, such as monitors and displays. Working towards the latter, NEC has teamed up with Raspberry Pi on a new generation of large format displays with smart functionality. NEC in Europe said it will be sharing an open platform modular approach with Raspberry Pi, one that will enable a seamless integration of the latter's... Read more...
We've had good experiences with Dell's large size UltraSharp monitors over the years, which combine big screens with accurate color reproduction and bright visuals. Now Dell has two more more models to consider, both of which promise the same level of quality we've grown accustomed to. One is the 34-inch curved panel (U3417W) and the other is a 30-inch flat display (UP3017)These are two monitors aimed to two different audiences. Starting with the smaller of the two, the 30-inch UP3017 with PremierColor brings color-critical performance to the table for graphics artists and other professionals who... Read more...
It seems hard to believe now, but for a long time the monitor market was stuck in a rut without any kind of real innovation taking place. That started to change with 4K Ultra HD gained steam, and monitor makers have been using the opportunity to release new models with fancy new features. Just this week alone we've seen Samsung launch a trio of promising Quantum Dot displays and now LG offering up three new models of its own, including one with Google Cast built into it. That's the 34UM79M, a 34-inch UltraWide flat panel display with a 21:9 aspect ratio. That gives you a bunch of vertical space... Read more...
IFA 2016 does not start until September 1st, but the announcements are already rolling in. Samsung will be releasing the CFG70 and CF791-- the world’s first curved quantum dot gaming monitors. The CFG70 will be available in 24-inch and 27-inch models while the CF791 will come in at a an expansive 34-inches. Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics remarked, “By enhancing our pioneering curved gaming monitors with quantum dot technology, our CFG70 and CF791 displays further surround players and make them feel as if they are part of the game. We are excited... Read more...
Acer's blitzing the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas with several new products, and included among them are a bunch of additions to its monitor lineup. Featuring high quality in-plane switching (IPS) panels, each of the new monitors bring something unique to the table, starting with the incredibly thin profile of the R1 Series. Every monitor maker out there is building increasingly thin displays, but the R1 Series by Acer happens to be the world's slimmest with an enclosure that measures a scant 7mm. The monitors in the R1 Series also boast a ZeroFrame design to make the most of their... Read more...
There's innovation in the monitor market again. For several years, a top of the line monitor consisted of a 30-inch panel with a 2560x1600 resolution. That's not too shabby, but more recently, monitor makers have begun offering even better displays higher resolutions and fancy new features. Count ASUS among them. ASUS today announced two new 27-inch monitors, the PG279Q and PG27AQ. At 27 inches, both are physically smaller than the 30-inch monitors that claimed flagship status for so long, but a closer look at each one reveals a few standout features that might make you want to upgrade, depending...

Philips is getting ready to release what it claims is the world's first quantum dot desktop monitor, the 276E6ADS. It's a 27-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution, which is nothing to write home about, though what's interesting about the monitor is that it supposedly delivers 99 percent coverage of the Adobe RGB color space. There's an excellent primer on Wired about quantum dot technology, which was a point of focus at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this year. Quantum dots are semiconductor nanocrystals engineered to emit light. They have narrow light... Read more...
Lenovo on Tuesday announced a new generation of ThinkVision T Series monitors that feature the latest green certificates and a more refined design than what you might be used. Part of that entails new thinner profiles and an ergonomic stand that supports lift, tilt, and pivot adjustments, along with the ability to swivel into portrait mode, an oft-overlooked feature even among professional panels. While on the topic of physical design, the refreshed monitors sport an equal bezel width on all sides, as Lenovo wanted to ensure a seamless flow for those who choose to configure a multi-monitor setup...

Back in September at a press event held in Montreal, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced what he called “one of the most important works NVIDIA has done for computer graphics.” The technology was called G-SYNC. G-SYNC is an end-to-end graphics and display architecture that starts with a Kepler-based GPU and ends with a G-SYNC module within a monitor. The G-SYNC module is piece of hardware that replaces the scaler inside a display/gaming monitor that essentially does away with the fixed vertical refresh rates of current displays. To put it simply, what G-SYNC... Read more...
The welcome onslaught of 4K is coming, and Dell is getting into the game with a line of Ultra HD monitors for consumers, power users, and business pros alike. There are three models for the time being, one each at 32-, 28-, and 24-inches. “We are excited to announce Ultra High Definition monitors in sizes and price points that will be compelling to customers seeking higher resolution,” said Bert Park, Dell vice president and general manager, Displays and Client Peripherals, in a press release.

In addition to the major system and graphics card announcements ASUS made at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the company was showing off a number of other interesting products as well. We just spent some time with representatives from ASUS at a suite in the Trump Hotel and got to check out some new monitors, motherboards, notebooks, mobile devices, and networking products first hand. One of the most interesting products on display was a new wide-screen monitor dubbed the MX299Q. This 29” display sports a 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio and a high-quality IPS panel with...
