Lenovo's IdeaPad Y560D is an interesting system that initially caught our eye thanks to its 3D-capable display. 3D films and TVs have been declared hot ticket capabilities by the film industry and TV manufacturers, but this is the first 3D-capable notebook we've had in house. The Y560D isn't the only 3D laptop on the market, but it's priced... Read more...

Toshiba announced its premier Cinema Series line of HDTVs, featuring the VX700 Series and the WX800 3D Series LED HDTVs. The WX800 delivers a three-dimensional experience when using a pair of optional Toshiba 3D glasses, Toshiba's BDX3000 3D Blu-ray Disc player, and a 3D capable HDMI cable. The WX800 boasts of a depth of less than 1.2 inches.... Read more...
Over the last few years, and particularly since Avatar hit the big screen seven months ago, display manufacturers and the film industry have been yammering to anyone that would listen that 3D technology is The Next Big Thing. Investors and analysts have cautiously warned against embracing the concept that 3D would reinvigorate theaters and... Read more...
Wow, what a difference a few years makes. It wasn't too long ago that Polaroid was cranking out camera after camera meant to show images just moments after they were shot. A downfall and ownership change later, and now the namesake is latching onto a bandwagon rather than starting one of their own. 3D is obviously all the rage these days,... Read more...
3D has conquered the cinema, it's on the way to conquering 3D gaming on the PC, and after that, it's planning on taking over your living room. But what if you have no real interest in watching 3D content? If you're a gamer, there's still a chance to hook you, and that's Panasonic's plans with their newest 3D HDTVs. The company, at CES 2010,... Read more...
3D is here to stay, for a while anyway. And that means that 3D content will slowly but surely arrive to catch up with the 3D hardware that's already out there. Programming is sure to scare for some time, as not many programs are even equipped with the cameras to shoot in 3D, and not all content will be shot in 3D. With HD, everything could... Read more...
It's pretty much official at this point: 3D is here to stay, at least for a while. With Sony being one of the major backers of the technology we wondered how long (if ever) the others guys would wait before hopping on the bandwagon. Today, Samsung let out a slew of news surrounding 3D, and we can't imagine that the... Read more...
It's one thing to support 3D in the home, but it's another to devote time, resources and shelf space to in-home 3D products. It's clear at this point that Samsung is fully behind the technology, and they're ramping up impressively as the holiday shopping season draws near. Aside from picking up some exclusive 3D Blu-ray content, the company... Read more...
3D, like it or not, is big business. Not just big business, but huge business. The past 6 months have shown at the box office that people are willing to pay for 3D, particularly with blockbuster films that really take advantage of the effect. NVIDIA knows this quite well, and they have already seen that people are eager to bring 3D to their... Read more...
With Sony leading the 3D push in the home, you shouldn't be surprised that Sony already has a couple of 3D HDTV models headed to market. But when a market leader like Sony makes a move, it only takes a small amount of time for the "other guys" to catch up and do likewise. That's exactly what has happened here, with Toshiba adding some much... Read more...
It had to occur sooner or later, and at the rate that the 3D bandwagon is exploding, it was a safe bet to assume "sooner." In Japan today, Panasonic revealed what they are calling the "world's first 3D consumer camcorder." As you've seen based on the amount of 3D movies available in cinemas, this obviously is not the...

Wireless HD and wireless HDTV has had quite a difficult time gaining ground in the mainstream. We suspect there are two main reasons: one, it's expensive, and two, it's not that difficult to just run an HDMI cable. There's also the fact that even a completely wireless HDTV will still require a power cable, so regardless of how fancy your wireless... Read more...
There is a big push for various 3D technologies in the current market. Whether you're a fan or foe, the industry is pushing forward with 3D at a torrid pace. Recently, we had a chance to test 3D Vision Surround from NVIDIA and came away impressed by the experience. It was only a matter of time before we got our hands on more hardware featuring...

Each time a new CPU or GPU is introduced, iBuyPower is right there to issue new systems with the new hardware. It's a tough pill to swallow for those who just purchased the best that the last generation had to offer, but for those who love keeping pace with the rapid pace of technology, there's hardly a better pre-fab...

Oh, brother. Okay, we won't jump to conclusions and be immediately skeptical, but there's just something strange about how quickly the industry is latching onto 3D without any real proof that it'll work in more than just the cinema. Of course, when power house companies like Sony and NVIDIA get behind something, it leaves little choice for... Read more...
Half the fun in putting together your ultimate home theater setup is piecing together parts you hand selected after auditioning each one (you don't just buy audio components based on paper specs and price, do you?). It's similar to rolling your own rig, but if you're just not into that sort of thing, or don't have the... Read more...
Have we mentioned before that Sony is firmly on the 3D bandwagon? There's no question that Sony is pushing 3D harder than almost any other single company in the industry right now, and with huge investments in 3D HDTVs, 3D gaming (with the PS3) and 3D glasses, who could blame them? But one thing that has eluded the 3D industry in large part... Read more...
It's hard to say which company really sparked the 3D revolution, but it's safe to say that Sony will go down as one of the pioneers. They have been pushing the technology from the beginning, and they've been willing to spend serious bucks in order to make sure that 3D is available on their televisions, game consoles and even Blu-ray players....

Everyone's playing the 3D card these days. And when we say everyone, we really mean everyone. It's kind of crazy to think about how quickly 3D has re-risen to prominence, and now even PC makers are joining in. At first, there was 3D gaming on the desktop. 3D LCDs weren't too hard to find, and NVIDIA's 3D Vision kit helped gamers get the extra... Read more...
Yep, it's really happening. 3D content is finally arriving on television sets, which is arguably the last major puzzle piece that in-home 3D had to solve. 3D glasses are here, as are 3D HDTVs. And there's at least some demand for having 3D support around in the home. But if there's no 3D programming to enjoy, what's the use in having the 3D... Read more...
