Samsung has done very well historically with DisplayMate ratings, with the Galaxy S8 receiving its highest ever rating at the time it launched. Earlier this year, the Galaxy S9 was crowned the best smartphone display in the world. DisplayMate's test report for the Galaxy Note 9 shows that the smartphone's display performance has reached record-setting "Outstanding" levels and set many new Display Performance Records. One of those records was for Absolute Color Accuracy scoring a "very impressive" 0.5 JNCD making it "Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect." DisplayMate wrote in the test results that the Note 9 display was "almost certainly considerably better than your existing Smartphone,... Read more...
During CES 2018, one of the coolest things on display at the Samsung booth was called "The Wall". The Wall is a modular TV screen that buyers can size to their own specifications by adding more screens. Samsung produces the displays used in that modular screen using micro LED technology. Samsung's micro LED Technology is like OLED technology in that micro LEDs need no backlight. The promise is darker blacks and brighter whites along with superior image compared to normal LED TVs. Samsung is now ready for the micro LED display to enter production, which means that commercial availability for The Wall is coming soon. Samsung envisions commercial and home entertainment applications for The Wall,... Read more...
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 the attention of everyone from artists to gamers.The B326HK isn’t a flashy display, but it’s designed to be easy to adjust, whether you want to raise, lower, or tilt it. The monitor also comes with a full complement of ports, including HDMI with MHL (for mobile devices), DisplayPort, DVI, Mini DP, and USB 3.0. Other specs are solid, but unsurprising: the B326HK has a 6ms response time... Read more...
Need a way to spend a small fortune on a new HDTV? LG has you covered. The company has just started shipping its 105-inch 21:9 curved Ultra HD TV, which might just require a room of its own to properly enjoy. In sum, the screen boasts over 11 million pixels with a 5120x2160 resolution, as well as a 7.2-channel sound system (150-watt) built-in below. The screen was initially launched at CES, and now it's taking pre-orders in its home market of South Korea. If you're not looking to import, you'll need to wait until Q4 to hear more. Unfortunately, exact pricing details are being kept under wraps, but you can count on it costing tens of thousands of dollars. Here's a bit straight from LG: “The... Read more...
Bigger is in, certainly when glancing at the smartphone universe. Phablets have proven to be more than a fad, and even "normal" smartphones are above the 4" mark. Now, Apple is about to join that bandwagon. According to suppliers in Taiwan cited in a new Reuters report, the next iteration of the iPhone (likely the iPhone 6) will boast a 4.7" display, and could hit shelves as early as August. That'd be a change in ship date from the past few iPhone models, which hit closer to the holiday shopping rush. But, here's why: Apple may then introduce yet another iPhone model, with a screen hovering around 5.5" or 5.6", this September. If true, this would mark the first time in Apple's history that it...

One has to wonder: is it possible to have access to too many pixels? Probably not, particularly if you're Toshiba. The company has just outed one of the planet's first 4K laptops, and if pixel density is your top priority, this one's going to be tough to resist. The Satellite P55t has a full-fledged 4K display, and the first to earn Technicolor's Color Certification. It's meant mostly for creative pros, but enthusiasts will find plenty to love as well. It's equipped with a 15.6" IPS screen, a 3840 x 2160 resolution, and 282PPI (pixels per inch) to gawk at. Toshiba clims that it's Technicolor Certified during production, and with the "preinstalled Chroma Tune for Toshiba software, users can personalize... Read more...
While Yahoo's logo didn't draw too much (any?) applause, the company's refined mobile apps have been nearly universally praised. Now, it's branching out into yet another sector: the second screen. Yahoo Screen is a new iOS app, which Yahoo says is designed to bring a "simple, intuitive experience that turns your finger into a remote control. Just swipe through channels of content from Yahoo and our great partners then lean back and watch…no matter where you are." You'll be able to browse through trending clips, search for shows, or jump right in and start watching. Swiping left and right skips between episodes and swiping up and down flips through channels. Yahoo has also landed a deal... Read more...
Dynaflo introduced a new liquid screen protector known as LIQUID-ARMOR. According to the company, you can protect the glass screen of all of your favorite electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and cameras. LIQUID-ARMOR is designed to be twice as strong as traditional screen protection film. According to Dynaflo, the LIQUID-ARMOR won't interfere with the sensitivity of a touch screen or its clarity. LIQUID-ARMOR is designed to help repel dust and is also weather-resistant. An application of LIQUID-ARMOR is said to last for up to six months. The spray is available for about $25 from many retailers, including Target.com and Walmart.com. DYNAFLO RELEASES LIQUID-ARMOR,... Read more...
Most of the time, companies have extol their new devices, and explain why Product A is superior to Product B. But sometimes, you do things like this. Sharp has just introduced the "largest TV on the planet." And really, need we say more? Actually, we do. There are without question TV sets out there larger than this one, but you won't find any as close to these in terms of pricing and consumer-friendliness. The new AQUOS LED TV (model LC-90LE745U) is a 90" beast of a screen, that stands nearly 4' tall and spans 6' 8" wide. The panel is 1080p (shame it's not 4K!), and it weighs a whopping 141 pounds. The 90" class AQUOS features Sharp's proprietary SmartCentral, offering direct access to the most... Read more...
Gorilla Glass is great, sure, but it's not flawless, and it's still possible to damage and crack. But what if electronics could repair themselves? It sounds like a pipe dream, and indeed it is, but it may not be as far-fetched as you think. Toray Advanced Film Co. will reportedly begin to sell a self-curing coat film, which is said to be able to "self-repair small scratches in earnest." So far, the company has supplied the film to a number of smaller applications, and evidently things have turned out so well that commercial production is in the pipeline. It seems that touch panels are first in line, and considering how many scuffs we've seen on our own phones around here, it makes sense to aim... Read more...
A TechCruncher recently got a sneak peak at a new Kindle under development in Amazon’s labs, and although most of the device was apparently hidden under cardboard, the premier feature was exposed: a glowing screen. In late 2010, it seems, Amazon snapped up lighting technology company Oy Modilis and its many patents (and talent) and is working on integrating lighting to the Kindle’s screen. The lighting element will be inserted as a layer in the screen and use energy-efficient LEDs; the whole effect promises to be easier on the eyes than LCD screens used on tablets. New Kindle design concept (Image credit: TechCrunch) There’s no video of any sort--yet--but Techcrunch’s... Read more...
If you aren't playing the streaming game, you just aren't getting with the program. That's the message being handed down these days, and HP's making sure they aren't missing any bandwagon action. The new Wireless TV Connect was revealed today, enabling laptops to beam content to displays with "no delays and no hassles." In the box, you'll get a PC adapter, TV adapter, USB cable, HDMI cable, power adapter and warranty card. That'll allow you to stream HD 1080p content straight from the computer with no lip sync issues -- it'll even handle Blu-ray footage and 3D content. HP claims that the entire thing can be setup in 5 minutes. Any notebook or desktop with an available HDMI and USB port can be... Read more...
It's got to be hard being a company like Lenovo. Pumping out notebooks, laptops, desktops, and even monitors. Lots to keep track of, and lots of people to impress. Sounds like a modern-day celebrity, but in fact it's a technology company. In a bid to toss a bone in the direction of Lenovo's lucrative business partners, the company has just revealed a new monitor series that's tuned for small biz. It's the "LS" series, and it's designed to complement the company's ThinkCentre Edge desktop line. The 21.5-inch LS2221 wide and 23.6-inch LS2421p wide monitors are the ones being revealed, and not coincidentally, the company also used this opportunity to reveal the Edge 71 desktop -- one that'd go perfectly...

There's no question that pixel density is one of the hot new things. Ever since Apple introduced the Retina Display on the iPhone 4, companies have been pushing the pixel envelope, so to speak. In general, the more pixels you fit onto a space, the higher the pixel density. Too high, and fonts are hard to read, but images and multi-media appear exceptionally crisp. Too low, and things just appear "pixelated." LG Display is one company that's working hard to take their displays to a new level in terms of pixel density. This coming week, the outfit will showcase a full line-up of Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS) products at SID (Society for Information Display)’s Display... Read more...
World records are fun, aren't they? Particularly when you're talking about the world record for something as awe-inspiring as the planet's largest high-definition video board. Those that have watched a Cowboys game recently know just how giant the HD video display is that hangs within the confines of the new Cowboys Stadium, but it'll be NASCAR fans gawking at the largest. Dale Earnhardt Jr. took the world’s largest high definition video board for a spin this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, by taking virtual laps around the 1.5-mile track using an iRacing simulator. Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway, invited Earnhardt Jr., an avid video gamer, to... Read more...
Over the years, we've seen some pretty unusual notebook designs. There have been large ones, small ones and ones with tilting/swiveling screens. A few have even shipped with two LCDs, and Lenovo even created one with a slide-out LCD. But by and large, the general notebook design has remained constant over the years. Is it time for a major overhaul? Possibly, and Samsung Electronics may be the company leading the charge. At FPD China 2011, Samsung introduced and showcased a 14" see-though LCD panel. That's right: it's an LCD panel that you can see through. It's obviously a prototype for now; Samsung's not ready to ship these in commercial products. But still, the idea is terrific, and if Samsung... Read more...
It's something you look at every day, it's your monitor. Are you happy with it? Could it stand to be upgraded? In the world of new CPUs, GPUs and RAM, the LCD often gets overlooked. Dell has just introduced a new pair of screens, both of which boast high-end features with low-end price tags. The U2211H and U2311H both utilize in-plane switching technology (IPS) to deliver consistent colors across wide viewing angles, a technology that's far superior to the TN panels used in lots of lower-end panels. Dell is making these panels available Asia Pacific/Japan and in the U.S. from today at prices starting from $279 for the U2211H and $299 for the U2311H; Europe will see them starting on May 19th....

Larger may not always be superior, but in the case of LCD monitors, bigger is almost always the best choice if you have the space to spare. Dell, HP and Apple have all caused quite a lot of drool to be spilled thanks to their high-end, high resolution LCD panels, and now NEC is deciding not to sit on the sidelines any longer. NEC Display has today introduced their very first 27" LCD product, the MultiSync PA271W. It's being added to the MultiSync PA Series of screens, and unlike many monitors, NECs are always designed with the creative pro in mind. Color accuracy is of the utmost importance on these, so you shouldn't worry about that if you tend to edit loads of photos and video.The screen features... Read more...
Few people will argue that Apple's iPad has put a serious kink in the plans of ereader companies, and devices such as Amazon's Kindle now have to re-think how they'll market themselves. The iPad can easily last ten hours, and it supports illustrations and far richer text than any current e-ink display; now, ereaders are at a big disadvantage. But electronic ink still has a big advantage--it requires far less power than LCDs, so if battery life is of the utmost concern, there's still no beating it. But most people would probably give e-ink another look if it could manage color, and if it could refresh faster. A Dutch company by the name of Liquavista is working hard on developing just that. The... Read more...
Secondary displays aren't a new sector; for just over a year now, select companies have been offering smaller, USB-connected displays that help give desktop and notebook owners a little bit of extra screen space, and given that these are mobile, you can tote them easily and use them on multiple computers. MEDL Technology is really amping things up, though. Most others have been sized between 5" and 9", but this company's new USB monitor checks in at a whopping 13". Of course, 'The Panel' is just a prototype today, but it's getting a lot of attention around the tech world. At IDG's DEMO conference in Palm Springs, California, 'The Panel' made its debut. It's considered a lightweight and durable... Read more...
Dell has been quite busy beefing up their notebook line, but one area that has seen little to no attention over the past few months is the LCD. Dell is a huge seller of LCD monitors, but because they aren't as flashy as new notebooks, new tablet PCs or new desktops, we suppose that they haven't been marketing the new releases as hard.That said, the company has pushed out a new panel this weekend that's perfect for the average power user. The G2410H is a stylish 24" LCD with a height adjustable stand, a 1080p resolution, 250cd/m2 brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and DVI/VGA inputs. It's a simplistic affair (no HDMI or component, and no built-in speakers), but it's straddling the line between... Read more...
Samsung is the largest and one of the more popular consumer electronics companies in the world. Besides its hugely successful HDTV lineup, the company also makes some equally exciting LCD monitors. Samsung's offering of flat panel displays have proven to be stylish, dependable, and competitively priced. Generally, we've come to find that Samsung PC monitors deliver a healthy balance of performance and affordability though not on the bleeding-edge of technology but more targeted to the mainstream. In addition to its own line of monitors, Samsung even manufactures a multitude of the actual LCD panels found inside the the products of its competitors. Today we're taking a look at one of Samsung's... Read more...
