Last year, when I was first exposed to NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology, I turned to one of our contacts at the company and said, “The moment someone comes out with a nice 4K version, I’ll hand over my credit card”. At the time, I had been riding along on a 30” HP display with a resolution of 2560x1600, and quite frankly, was itching to upgrade. After all, smartphones and tablets were already available with high-resolution screens that put the pixel densities of typical PC displays to shame. And after years of upgrading every other part of my personal workstation (multiple... Read more...
In the interest of full disclosure, I’m going to start this piece off with a bit of a confession: Last year, when I was first exposed to NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology, I turned to one of our contacts at the company and said, “The moment someone comes out with a nice 4K version, I’ll hand over my credit card”. At the time, I had been riding along on a 30” HP display with a resolution of 2560x1600 for a few years, and quite frankly, was itching to upgrade.

Before we dive in and show you the brand-new ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q G-Sync enabled monitor, we have a confession to make: We are ecstatic that there is finally some innovation happening in the monitor market. For years, 30” panels with native resolutions of 2560x1600 and paltry 60Hz refresh rates remained the pinnacle of desktop displays, while the rest of the market filled up with cheap, less-than-stellar 1080p panels. As much as we all loved our 30” panels around here, it got a little boring staring at the same screen for years on end, especially when all of the hardware around it... Read more...

All the talk in the display sector seems to revolve around 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) these days, but that's not the only thing going on in the industry. If you focus your attention over at Sharp, you'll see the company is pretty excited about its new "Free-Form Display," a new type of technology that allows for the creation of varied display designs. Using IGZO technology combined with proprietary circuit design methods, Sharp is able to build displays that take on funky shapes and curves rather than stick with a traditional rectangular or square design. Here's a look at Sharp's prototype:... Read more...
The 4K revolution is on, and not just in the HDTV department. ASUS got things going with its 31.5" PQ321 Ultra HD monitor, and now EIZO is stepping up to the plate with an equally impressive panel. While it's not boasting a 4K resolution, it does claim to be the world's first 240Hz gaming monitor. If you're unfamiliar, 240Hz panels generally mask ghosting and flickering, particularly with fast-moving titles and high-action scenes. If you're an avid first-person shooter gamer, having a 240Hz display is a real boon. The 23.5" panel sports a Full HD (1920x1080) resolution, 400 nits of brightness,... Read more...
Don't look now, but Asus and NVIDIA just tied another knot. The two have quite the storied history of working together, and today, they've announced that Asus will be adopting NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology. It'll be primary used in Asus' next-gen monitor lineup, and if you aren't familiar with G-SYNC, take a listen. It's intended to synchronize the monitor's refresh rate to the GPU's render rate, enabling images to be displayed the moment that they are rendered. The end result? Smoother gameplay, sharper images, and the elimination of onscreen tearing, stuttering, and latency.  Here's the pitch:... Read more...
What do you get when you combine an Ultrabook and a mobile workstation? HP's newest laptop, that's what. The new ZBook 14 is an interesting mix -- a clash of cultures, if you will. The three new ZBook's (there's a 15" and 17" model available as well) feature Haswell CPUs, graphics chips from AMD and NVIDIA, and rugged shells. Plus, the ZBook 15 will include an option for a super-high-resolution QHD+ 3,200 x 1,800 display, which is about as dense as they get these days. The HP ZBook 15 and 17 feature a Thunderbolt port, as well as an optional DreamColor Display panel that provides accurate and consistent... Read more...
Intel's Wireless Display technology, also known as WiDi, hasn't exactly taken off the way Bluetooth has, but it's still a blossoming protocol that has the chance to eliminate wire usage in the display market. More and more laptops are shipping with WiDi support from the factory, and now, LG Display has developed the world's first WiDi-enabled LCD panel for desktop monitors. The new 23.8" LCD panel allows users to stream wirelessly from their laptop and desktop content to their TVs and monitors in a more seamless manner. The company managed to build a key chipset right into the LCD module, essentially... Read more...
There's a reason the mantra "History Repeats Itself" continues to live on. For as much as things change, a lot of things end up staying the same, and all bets are off when it comes to pure nostalgia. LG is looking to tap a certain segment of consumers who may have aged a bit, started a family of their own, and now has the disposable income to both satisfy the desires of owning modern technology, while satisfying the yearnings of "the good ole' days." The company's newest HDTV is quite the looker, complete with a retro-inspired case that is part Jetsons, and part high-tech. The 32LN630R looks much... Read more...
Canon Announced the Canon EOS 70D, promising that the DSLR will offer “instant and precise” focusing in both still images and video thanks to the Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus feature and phase-detection AF. Canon also says the camera can shoot video near the quality of a camcorder, in 1080p HD at 30 FPS. The EOS 70D features a 20.2 megapixel APS-C Canon CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5+ Image Processor and an ISO range of 100-12800, with the ability to snap sharp images even in low light. It can handle SD/SDHC/SDXC and Ultra High Speed cards. There’s also a stereo microphone with manual... Read more...
Look, desktops may be on the decline, but if you're still using one, you're going to want this monitor. Asus has just opened up pre-orders for its PQ231Q monitor -- the world's first consumer 4K LCD. It's a 31.5" screen with four times the resolution of a typical 1080p panel. Starting now, US consumers will be able to pre-order the world's first consumer 4K monitor through Newegg, Amazon, or TigerDirect at an introductory MSRP of $3,499. It has a 31.5-inch LED-backlit 4K Ultra HD display (140 pixels-per-inch) with a 16:9 aspect ratio, and supports 10-bit RGB 'deep color' for vibrant images with... Read more...
4K is quite the in-thing these days. Where 3D failed, 4K resolution is apt to thrive. Why? No glasses, of course. And people tend to really, really love pixels -- just look at how well the Retina display has gone over in the iPhone and MacBook Pro. Now, Asus is pushing the envelope by revealing a monster of a monitor. It's a 31.5" 4K Ultra HD monitor, designed for only the most spacious of desks and perceptive of eyes. It offers up 4x the resolution of a standard 1080p desk monitor, which should make photo designers drool. The PQ321 has a native 3840 x 2160 resolution, 140 pixels-per-inch, a 16:9... Read more...
After all of these years, Vizio's still cranking out low-cost HDTVs. But these days, quality seems to be higher on the priority list. The company's new M-Series is a cut above some of the older models, rivaling flagship sets from LG, Sharp, Sony and Toshiba. This week, pricing and availability details were launched for that range, which includes the Razor LED Smart TV models. These guys have an exceptional design, with practically no bezel to speak of and impressive specifications to boot. The signature M-Series design is available in a full range of screen size classes including 32" (M321i), 40"... Read more...
