Earlier this week, Samsung announced their new 2019 lineup of 4K and 8K televisions using a display technology they call QLED. The term QLED looks suspiciously like OLED, but do the two technologies actually have much in common? After fielding a few questions about this on our website and social media, we want to clear up any confusion between them and expound on what to expect in terms of picture quality from each. We will start at the beginning with a basic LED LCD display. Virtually everyone has encountered one of these displays at some point in their life as they make up the majority of the market. These use a white LED backlight to shine through tiny red, green, and blue filters to create... 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 that it plans to bring to the convention will be geared towards gamers. One will be a 27-inch panel and the other will loom larger at 31.5 inches. Both will feature an 1,800R curvature and an ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle so that content will be easily viewed no matter where you might be in a room. Of course, the the most immersive spot will be smack dab in front of the curved... Read more...

Philips is getting ready to release what it claims is the world's first quantum dot desktop monitor, the 276E6ADS. It's a 27-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution, which is nothing to write home about, though what's interesting about the monitor is that it supposedly delivers 99 percent coverage of the Adobe RGB color space. There's an excellent primer on Wired about quantum dot technology, which was a point of focus at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this year. Quantum dots are semiconductor nanocrystals engineered to emit light. They have narrow light emission properties that enable a wider color gamut for improved color fidelity and better backlight...

Though the holiday sales are tempting, you may want to hold off on purchasing a new 4K Ultra HD TV for a month or so. For one, the Super Bowl is fast approaching (go Patriots!), and there are always sales on large screen TVs leading up to the big game. And secondly, there are some interesting technologies that will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next month, including "quantum dot" technology. What is quantum dot technology? It allows you to travel back in time as you possess different people in an attempt to put them on the right path. Actually, scratch that -- we may have gotten confused with Quantum Leap (remember that show?). Quantum dot is a technology that... Read more...
