New LCDs. Need 'em? BenQ's got 'em. The company has just announced two new members of the EW series of Vertical Alignment (VA) LED monitors, with the lineup boosted by two with the addition of the EW2430 and the EW2430V. Both monitors have a 3,000:1 native contrast ratio, an 8-bit color panel and BenQ's own Seneye Human Vision Technology. The flagship member is the 24" 2430V, which has two HDMI ports, a VGA port and a DVI-D port. There's also four USB ports on each monitor, with a component jack on the V model. BenQ hasn't released pricing yet, but they should ship shortly. Internationally-renowned provider of digital monitors –BenQ, proudly announced the release of their EW Series of Vertical...

3D wasn't quite as big of a deal at this year's CES as compared to last year, but it was still very much in play. There were lots of new takes on 3D, and lots of sets that relied on passive glasses versus the more common active glasses. Lenovo was one of the those companies pushing a new 3D product, believe it or not. Rather than issuing a 3D HDTV, Lenovo had a new 3D monitor that ships with 3D glasses and support for NVIDIA's 3D Vision. The new L2363d 23" 3D monitor touts a 1920 x 1080 screen resolution and dual webcams, which allow users to take 3D photos or engage in stereoscopic 3D web conferencing. In other news, the IdeaCentre K330 PC was also launched, with this 3D gaming tower having... Read more...
Is the future e-paper? LCD? Plasma? AMOLED? It's probably a mixture of all of them, plus a few display technologies that don't even have a name yet. But in the mobile realm, display technology is of particular importance. With the explosion of smartphone growth, people are paying more attention to the size, screen resolution and quality of their mobile displays. Samsung Mobile Display is intent on making sure the future is filled with amazing mobile screens, and they're planning to showcase a slew of new, crazy, wild technologies at CES 2011 next week. Among the stars at the show will be a 4.5" WVGA flexible AMOLED, which offers the world's highest flexible display resolution. SMD is presenting... Read more...
A few years ago, LCD TVs were the "in" thing. Much like tablets are today, in fact. HDTVs were coming out of every pore in the consumer electronics universe, with most companies fighting to see who could produce one thinner and lighter than the next. That race has slowed dramatically since, with most companies shifting focus to 3D and other advanced features. But LG is still in the thin-and-light race, and the new E90 monitor is one of the slimmest ever. This is LG's slimmest LED monitor yet, with just 7.2mm of depth. It has a fast 2ms response time, great for fast-action content or gaming, and the slim design utilizes some interesting design cues. LG has placed the power supply and socket connecting...

Touch 'em all! It used to be a baseball saying when talking about a home run, but now it's just as meaningful in the LCD and PC market. ViewSonic just can't resist the urge any longer, today introducing their latest updates by bringing out a multi-touch monitor and a touch-panel all-in-one PC. The VX2258wm display comes first, with a 22" Full HD touch screen, a 1920x1080 resolutio, a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and an Energy Star 5.0 rating. There's also VGA and DVI outputs as well as integrated speakers, and if the stand isn't good enough, it supports wall mounting as well. The ViewSonic VPC220T looks nearly identical, but inside of its shell is a full-fledged PC. It's a 22" AIO PC with... Read more...
LCD monitors began as poor replacements for CRTs when it came to playing games, due in large part to sluggish response times resulting in ghosting, streaking, and other abnormalities. Today's LCD monitors do a much better job, but evidently there's still plenty of room for improvement. Enter Mitsubishi, which is reportedly designing an intelligent 23-inch LCD monitor with three different display modes depending on the type of game you're playing. The RDT232WM-Z panel employs a double-speed interpolation function, which is a fancy way of saying it's able to interpolate images from 60fps to 120fps for a smoother image. When playing shooter and music games, however, this technique is disabled to... Read more...
Need more proof that the 3D revolution has officially begun? You got it. Planar just announced a 23-inch 3D Vision Ready monitor for mass consumption, the SA2311W. Keep in mind that Planar doesn't often put a lot of focus on the general consumer side, though the company felt compelled enough by the current 3D landscape to try and cash in on the frenzy. "The Planar SA2311W is a sleek, attractive desktop LCD monitor designed for 3D viewing, but this affordable widescreen display is ideal for 2D use as well," Planar says. "Whether you’re playing the latest 3D game or modeling complex biomolecules, the blazing fast 120Hz frame rate and 2 ms response time deliver crisp, clear images and blur—free... Read more...
If you just so happen to be in the market for a new monitor, ViewSonic just so happens to have a new pair to choose from. The company's new VG36-LED Series of monitors are just being introduced this week, with two new ones in the line to start with. There's the 24" (23.6" vis.) VG2436wm-LED  and 22" (21.5" vis.) VG2236wm-LED, and outside of the physical size, most of the specifications are identical. Both units have slimmed bezels, a native 1920x1080 resolution, DVI and VGA ports a 20,000,000:1 MEGA contrast ratio and built-in stereo speakers. The company is also talking about eco-friendliness here, with each one having EPEAT Gold certifications and an energy savings of up to 50%. These... Read more...
NEC has been on a roll in the desktop monitor sector as of late. We recently reviewed the company's new MultiSync PA271W display and gave it high marks for its excellent color reproduction and boatload of useful features, and now NEC is bringing to market two more MultiSync displays, the EA192M and E201W. Both of these sport LED backlighting, a trait NEC says it wants to concentrate on in order to "help protect the environment." And other than the screen size and resolution (EA192M measures 19-inches and features a 1280x1024 native res with a 5:4 aspect ratio, while the E201W boasts a 20-inch panel with a 1600x900 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio), these two displays are essentially the same....

NEC just sent us word that its MultiSync PA Series 23-inch monitor with an IPS panel is headed for North American shores in November. This is the smallest version of the company's MultiSync PA Series, the largest being the PA271W we recently reviewed. The PA231W, which was unveiled in Europe last month, is a professional grade display featuring 71.6 percent coverage of the NTSC color space, 75.4 percent coverage of AdobeRGB, and 96.6 percent coverage of sRGB, NEC claims. Perhaps more importantly for photo pros, however, is the inclusion of 3D lookup tables for fine tuning calibration. Other features include a 1920x1080 resolution, 270 cd/m² brightness, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, AmbiBright... Read more...
For all but the most budget conscious buyers, piecing together a home brewed rig often entails forking over a premium for certain components, depending on what you're trying to accomplish. If you're a gamer, you probably bought a high-end graphics card (or at least that's what you should have done). Do you spend more time ripping videos than fragging your friends? Then chances are you allocated a bigger percentage of your budget to your CPU than on other parts. But for professional designers, graphic gurus, and anyone else who relies on pinpoint color accuracy, it's the monitor that matters most. That sub-$200 TN panel you spotted in the clearance bin at Walmart just isn't going to have the moxie... Read more...

It may not be the most beautiful of the bunch, but Eizo's new monitor can do something that your sleek, slick LCD probably can't: accept touch inputs. Eizo is best known for creating higher-end, professional monitors that are used for very specific applications, and this new FlexScan T1751 is no different. The unit offers multitouch capabilities through Windows 7 for an intuitive way to use applications with two fingers on the screen by tapping, scrolling, dragging, pinching, etc. The screen is only the second multitouch monitor from Eizo, and the smaller size of this one makes it way more flexible. It's primarily designed for use in schools and businesses, or in places where a 5:4 aspect ratio... Read more...
It's like skiing on the mountain and playing a video game at the same time. Zeal Optics, maker of sports lenswear has partnered with display maker Recon Instruments to come up with the Transcend GPS ski goggles and the units became available for sale this week. Zeal goes so far as to call them the world's first GPS-equipped goggles. The goggles do more than simply tell you stuff like what runs you've skied, or where the heck you are after telemarking in the back country all day while pounding schnapps. They include a dashboard that logs speed, altitude and temperature, vertical odometer, distance and the time, plus stopwatch and chronos modes, because for GPS lovers, there's no such thing as...

With this fast response rate, the new SyncMaster P2770FH has virtually no problems with motion blur or ghosting effects, making it ideal for gamers, video enthusiasts, and graphic designers. The P2770FH also features a 70,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and enriched color gamut. The 27-inch LCD monitor is accented by Samsung’s Touch of Color red finish and a simple stand.

New Samsung P2770FH Monitor Boasts Industry-Leading 1 ms Response Time New 27-inch Monitor Offers Gamers, Video Enthusiasts and Graphic Designers Stunning Image Quality and Unprecedented Response Time...

It appears an epiphany went and hit BenQ upside its head, and that is if it wants to "lead and become a true and professional gaming monitor provider," BenQ has to "understand the mindset and needs of gamers." Those are BenQ's words, not ours, though we fully agree -- the way it works in business, it typically helps to understand the consumers you're trying to sell product to. BenQ has a bigger point there than just a Business 101 message. They've gone and released their newest display, the 23.6-inch LED Gaming Monitor XL2410T, which was co-developed by ZOWIE, a professional Gaming gear manufacturer. Featuring a 120Hz refresh rate and quick 2ms GTG (OverDrive) response time, BenQ promises lag... Read more...
When you think of LaCie, you probably first think of the high-fashion storage devices that they are most commonly known for. But Photokina, which is a show based around photography, isn't exactly the best place to launch a hard drive. So, what's new from LaCie then? An LCD monitor, one that's designed for professional video/still employees who need the absolute best monitor to edit on. The new 24" 324i is a pro LCD with a 10-bit P-IPS panel and an anti-glare screen, both of which are designed to show true colors and help creative professionals fight less with printing companies due to colors not matching up. It has a 102% NTSC and 98% AdobeRGB color gamut rating, backlight stabilization, plenty... Read more...
If you've been watching television lately, you've probably heard some buzz about "Quattron." It's a new technology from Sharp that they seem really quite proud of, and now they're finally delivering it on a new range of HDTVs. The general concept is that Quattron adds a fourth sub-pixel of color (yellow) to go along with red, green and blue; in theory, this makes colors more vivid. Now, consumers can expect all AQUOS LCD HDTVs for years to come to be based around this tech. At this year's IFA show in Berlin, Sharp is introducing more than 30 LCD HDTVs with the key feature being Quattron. There's the 3D model range (LE925E) as well as the LE924E, LE824E and LE814E and AQUOS NET+1. The 3D models... Read more...
If something walks like a duck and talks like a duck, then it's probably a duck. But what if it also barks like a dog - what would you call it then? Figure that one out and you'll know what to call Samsung's new 90 and 30 series LED-backlit LCD displays, which you can use as a PC monitor or an HDTV. "People are looking to do more in smaller areas and multi-function monitors are a great way to maximize the functionality of a single device," said Young Bae, director of display marketing Samsung Enterprise Business Division. "Samsung continues to expand our multi-function offerings and these two new lines – the 30 and 90 series – provide a new range of options and value for our customers."... 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, introduced a number of large-screen 3D televisions, but none were small and cheap enough to be impulse buys. We can't say that either of these two sets are cheap enough either, but they're certainly small enough for bedrooms. The new VIERA GT25 line includes just two models for now: the 42" TC-P42G25 and the 50" TC-P50GT25. Both have 1080p resolutions, and... Read more...

It offers three programmable G-keys as well as a noise-canceling microphone. The Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 has 13 programmable controls. It also features full-speed wireless connection (1000 reports per second) so you can be free of cords without suffering from lags.

The keyboard also has Logitech's GamePanel LCD for access to real-time game stats and PC performance data. Choose Your Weapons Wisely:... Read more...
Sure, we'd all love to own multiple 30-inch displays configured in a swank Eyefinity setup, but then we're knocked down to reality when we do the math and figure out just how much something like that would cost. On the bright side, reality isn't so bad. There are plenty of options in the 23-inch and 24-inch monitor category to choose from, including NEC's new MultiSync E231W, an LED-backlit display the company says won't offend Mother Nature. "NEC is committed to continuing its strong leadership role within the industry by contributing to a greener environment with an eco-friendly display in the quickly-growing 23-inch category," said Lynn Gu, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. "The Multisync... Read more...
