There's going to be a lot of nifty products shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next month, and you can bank on HotHardware being there to cover the better bits.

It’s hard to say that a nearly $1,000 display is affordable, but Acer’s newly-launched 32-inch B326HK is one of the less-expensive monitors in the 4K market. With a resolution of 3840x2160 (four times the available pixels of a 1920x1080 display) and IPS technology for wide-angle viewing, the display is bound to get... Read more...
So, have you been shopping a 4K monitor for yourself and haven't liked what you've seen so far? We don't blame you -- though there are a select few models worthy of early adoption, for the most part, the 4K monitor movement still has some growing pains to overcome. One of the more promising entries we've seen in some... Read more...
Dell has made a handful of interesting announcements at its Dell World 2014 conference, currently taking place in Austin, Texas.

LG didn't just come out with another run-of-the-mill 4K monitor. Instead, the South Korean electronics maker dropped the gauntlet by introducing its 31-inch 31MU97 with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel and Digital Cinema 4K resolution, which trumps all those Ultra HD monitors out there by more than half-a-million...

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,... 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”....

We think NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology holds a lot of promise for gamers, though availability is a bit scarce at the moment, with just a few panels supporting the feature. Go ahead and add AOC's G24060PG 24-inch gaming monitor to the mix. AOC's newest display implements G-SYNC technology, which works with supported... Read more...
Two of the hottest technologies in the display category right now are 4K Ultra HD and NVIDIA G-SYNC. What happens when you combine the two? You end up with Acer's XB270H, a 28-inch 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) display with a 60Hz refresh rate, blazing fast 1ms response time, and G-SYNC to keep things honest. The XB280HK is... Read more...
Many companies haven't even introduced 4K displays with their own logo on them yet, and we're already looking ahead to what's next. That's typical for the tech space, but 5K displays seem closer than most would have guessed. The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has just announced the DisplayPort 1.3... Read more...
Look, that 4K monitor you just spent a king's ransom on isn't obsolete, but it's no longer cutting edge. How can that be? You can thank Dell for deciding that 8,294,400 pixels (3840x2160) just isn't enough, so it's going to release a 5K panel with a 5120x2880 resolution. That works out to 14,745,600 pixels, nearly...

We've seen display makers focus on lower cost 4K Ultra HD monitors in recent months, and while we applaud the effort, what about the graphics professional who is willing to spend more on a panel with better color accuracy? It looks like Samsung is ready to answer the call. In addition to a handful of mobile devices... Read more...
It's not easy to make a splash in tech news when you're going up against a major processor microarchitecture release like Haswell-E, though Dell managed to do just that by unveiling its uniquely redesigned Alienware Area 51 desktop yesterday. Interestingly, that wasn't the only thing Dell had up its sleeve. Mentioned... Read more...
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.

Today we're evaluating NEC's new MultiSync EA244UHD, a 24-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor. As part of NEC's EA series, this monitor is intended for high-end desktop users as opposed to professional graphics users, though there are features of the EA244UHD that may tempt potential customers who fall into the latter category. Things that separate this... Read more...
While you were busy blinking, a new development was fast tracking its way onto the monitor scene. We're talking about the transition to 4K, otherwise known as Ultra High Definition (UHD). No matter what you want to call it, the technology shift treats your eyeballs to four times as many pixels as the current standard, which is Full HD 1080p.... Read more...

AOC’s new 24-inch monitor looks nice enough at first blush, with a relatively thin silver bezel and what is no doubt a crisp, bright image, but underneath is where the good stuff is located. The company built a pair of 7W Onkyo speakers into the base. AOC is billing this display (the i2473Pwm) as “ideal... Read more...
Samsung is joining the push to empower desktop PC users with 4K ultra high definition (UHD) displays by announcing its new UD590 monitor. Like other 4K panels, the UD590 offers four times the resolution and pixels of a Full HD 1080p display at 3840x2160 versus 1920x1080. This allows for significantly more on-screen... Read more...
