There is always a caveat, and a certain feature that entices you to spend an extra $100 or more. Well, ASUS is hoping to keep those feelings to a minimum with its full-featured... Read more...
On the desktop, a 4K resolution isn't just hard on our graphics cards; it can be hard on our eyeballs as well. When the first 4K monitors hit the market, most of them used similar form-factors as 1440p models, despite needing to cram way more pixels into that space. Speaking from experience, 4K on a 28" monitor can be... Read more...
This year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas officially kicks off tomorrow but with so many products in the pipeline, some companies are jumping the gun with a spattering of early announcements. Count Dell among them. Just ahead of the annual convention, the OEM today unveiled a new XPS 13 2-in-1 laptop that for... Read more...
Curved screen displays are more than just a passing fad, at least that is the case if you ask Samsung. As such, the South Korean electronics giant will unveil its new CH711 Quantum Dot series of monitors with curved displays at the Consumer Electronics Shows in Las Vegas next week, the company announced. Both models... Read more...
AOC has a new monitor that would impress even Goose and Maverick from Top Gun fame, a pair of Naval aviators with an insatiable need for speed. It's the Agon AG251FZ, a 25-inch Twisted Nematic (TN) display with a blazing fast 240Hz rate, 1920x1080 resolution, 1ms response time, and Adaptive Sync (AMD FreeSync) support... Read more...
Part of the deal with the new MacBook Pro is that buyers have to go all-in with USB-C, a pricey proposition that can entail buying new peripherals and/or adapters. To help things along, Apple has issued a temporary price reduction on its USB-C adapters, along with USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 peripherals. On top of that... Read more...
ASUS has a new gaming monitor, the VG245H, and unlike most other monitors out there, this one isn't solely aimed at PC gamers. In truth, you could say that about any monitor with an HDMI port, though in this case, ASUS is clearly marketing the VG245H as an option for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners first and PC...

There's a lot of buzz about Apple's upcoming media event in which it's expected the company will introduce the next generation of its iPhone line, presumably the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and perhaps another Apple Watch as well. Ah, but handsets and wearables aren't the only devices on tap. Apple is said to... Read more...
If refresh rate matters a lot to you in gaming, then you might want to pay attention to the brand-new S2417DG from Dell: a monitor spec'd at 165Hz. Well, as long as you're willing to cough up for a graphics card that can reliably deliver 165 FPS in your games! As its model name suggests, the S2417DG is a 24-inch monitor, so for many, that Read more...
When it comes to giving presentations in the modern era, whiteboards are out and large touchscreen displays are in. That's the basis for Dell's new 70-inch Interactive Conference Room Monitor (C7017T), the company's first interactive touchscreen panel in the 70-inch category with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080 at 60Hz)...

A couple of weeks ago, Blizzard rolled out a patch to the PC version of its mega-hit Overwatch that removed support for ultrawide resolutions (which would include multi-monitors). That move spurred a huge discussion on whether or not ultrawide resolutions give too much of an advantage over those using regular displays... Read more...
For many users, one monitor just isn’t enough. Sometimes, two displays won’t cut it either. If your latest project has you searching for multiple, high-end monitors, you’re likely going to be looking at professional workhorses like NEC’s MultiSync EA305WMi. The venerable display maker designed this 30-inch monitor... Read more...
If you head over to Apple's website, the Cupertino outfit will happily sell you a 27-inch Thunderbolt display for $999, at least until its inventory runs out. Word on the web is that it's nearly out of stock and Apple doesn't plan to replenish them. Instead, Apple will launch a new version of its Thunderbolt monitor... Read more...
The ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q has a lot going for it. ASUS filled the spec sheet with desirable technologies, including the use of an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel. It's also the first monitor to boast both a 165Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-Sync support. But for all that it has going for it, there have been numerous user... Read more...
If you're a PC gamer or into enthusiast computing, how would you describe your ideal monitor? For many, it might go something like a 32 - 34-inch IPS panel with a high refresh rate of 100Hz plus, 4K resolution, along with NVIDIA G-SYNC or AMD FreeSync technology. And with displays this big, adding a slight curve might be high on your wish... Read more...
One of the first times we laid eyes on a curved monitor in the flesh was back at CES 2015 where Dell was showing off this 34-inch bad boy to the masses. Since then curved monitors have been cropping up all over the place, and even a few curved all-in-ones have made a showing here in Q4. Acer recently stepped up with... Read more...
Thanks to the emergence of NVIDIA’s G-SYNC, AMD’s FreeSync, i.e Adaptive Sync, 4K and various other display technologies, we’ve had the pleasure of evaluating a number of new monitors recently. One of our favorites from this past year was the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q. Although it featured a resolution of “only” 2560x1440, and employed a TN panel,... Read more...
When we took a look at the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q G-SYNC monitor last year, we praised it for its sleek design, thin bezels, support of NVIDIA’s adaptive refresh rate technology, and high-quality TN panel—relatively speaking. TN (Twisted Nematic) panels generally have fast response times and can be more affordable, but at the expense of color... Read more...
It seems like we went for years without any real kind of innovation in the monitor market. For the longest time, if you wanted a high-end display, you shopped IPS panels topping out at 30 inches with a 2560x1600 resolution. And these days? You have monitors like the new ASUS MG278Q, a 27-inch WQHD display with a 144Hz... Read more...
Ever since the 4K consumer resolution first hit the scene, one of the biggest hurdles in adoption has been price. Well, as with most things tech, things have dramatically improved over time, and I think it's safe to say that we've reached a point where a lack of adoption right now has little to do with price. AOC's... Read more...
Soon after NVIDIA unveiled its G-SYNC technology, AMD announced that it would pursue an open standard, dubbed FreeSync, leveraging technologies already available in the DisplayPort specification to offer adaptive refresh rates to users of some discrete Radeon GPUs and AMD APUs. AMD’s goal with FreeSync was to introduce a technology that offered... Read more...
Acer first unveiled its 27-inch XG270HU last month at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and at the time, it was pitching the display as a fairly standard monitor with thin size bezels as found on the XB270HU, another 27-inch monitor with support for NVIDIA's G-Sync technology. Well, the XG270HU doesn't... Read more...
