01/08/2014, When we hear about 4K televisions or monitors, chances are the notion that these devices are incredibly expensive come to mind. For the most part they are true, simply because the technology is still relatively new, as opposed to Full HD displays which are pretty affordable for the most part. We’ve seen companies such as Vizio announce affordable 4K televisions starting as low as $999.99, and the good news for […]
01/05/2014, [CES 2014] When Lenovo showed us the ThinkVision 28 4K2K, it was a surprising move because up until now manufacturers have been pretty timid when it comes to large Android all-in-one computers, but that’s the twist: the ThinkVision 28 Smart 4K is NOT pitched as an Android “all in one”, but rather as a very nice computer monitor (3840×2160) that is also capable of running Android apps. It is assumed […]
09/02/2013, As the title indicates the Lenovo LT2934Z is a “panoramic” monitor that has an unusual aspect ratio of 21:9 which is way beyond 16:9 as you can see on the photo (33% more viewing area than an equivalent 16:9 screen, in fact). This monitor is based on an IPS LCD panel, so the viewing angle is very wide with a 178 degrees in both horizontal and vertical axis. Lenovo says […]
08/16/2013, As important as it is to purchase a computer that is able to keep up the the sort of tasks you expect to carry out on the machine, it’s nearly equally important to also purchase a monitor that can make you cry with joy each and every time you use it. If you haven’t teared up looking at your monitor, you’re about to as Acer has just announced a number […]
07/11/2013, Samsung has two new large monitors on the market with this update of its Series 7 monitors. The Series 7 SC770 ($599.99) is a touch monitor which has been designed to offer a quick path to all the Windows 8 “touch goodness” that your current computer setup may not be able to perform. To provide the touch data connectivity back to the computer, the SC770 connects via USB in addition […]
02/12/2013, Dell has announced an important refresh of its monitor line-up, and I think that the Dell UltraSharp U3014 30-inch Monitor with PremierColor and the Dell UltraSharp U2913WM 29-inch Ultra-wide Monitor were the most interesting of all. First, the UltraSharp U3014 is great for its large-size and 2560×1600 resolution which is great for general work. Many people think that this type of display is for graphic designers, but I’ve been using […]
01/08/2013, [CES 2013] At Ubergizmo, we have been writing for a while about our hope to see more products running Android besides smartphones and tablets, and it looks like 2013 will bring its share of new smart Android devices. Following the launch of the previous model, the VSD220, an Android-powered 22” display, ViewSonic is coming to CES with a new 24” dual point touch display that runs Android JellyBean 4.1.
01/06/2013, CES 2013] The HP Pavilion line has always been about “bang for the buck”, so introducing IPS displays in that line-up makes sense. Most of the models (22xi, 23xi, 25xi and 27xi) feature a 1080p resolution, but the smallest 20xi does not (it tops at 1600×900), and it’s probably OK for a mid-range 20″ monitor. All of them offer a variety of input options, namely VGA, HDMI, DVI-D. The IPS […]
01/06/2013, [CES 2013] At CES 2013 HP is launching a new 27″ LCD IPS monitor under the Envy brand. The HP Envy 27″ display has been designed to look good on a desk, and one of the primary objectives of the designers was to make the bezels very thin. It’s hard to see on the photos, but if you’re not familiar with the IPS display technology, it is a type of […]
01/06/2013, [CES 2013] The thing with computers is that you need a screen, and when it comes to business, companies want something that is cost-effective, predictable and easy to maintain. That’s what HP is aiming for with this HP ProDisplay line of monitors that feature four models: P191 (18.5″), P201m (20″) and P221 (21.5″). Seriously, call me a naive consumer, but I don’t really understand why there is a need for […]
01/03/2012, [CES 2012] The HP L2311c Notebook Docking Monitor uses an interesting docking concept, and works with virtually any PC with a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port. At its core, the HP L2311c is a 23” LCD display (CCFL lighting), but upon connecting it to a laptop via a single USB port, the HP L2311c extends the capabilities of the connected notebook with Ethernet connectivity, USB 3.0+2.0 ports and a 720p HD […]
10/26/2011, If you have need for a secondary display for your laptop, maybe one screen for your word processor and the other for your browser while you do your research, Toshiba has just launched a USB-powered secondary monitor for laptops.
10/17/2011, If you’re in the market for a brand new 3D monitor, ViewSonic might have just what you’re looking for in the form of the V3D231 LED monitor. The 23” monitor will sport a native display resolution of 1920×1080 Full HD, with a 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio along with a mere 2ms video response time, which looks like it should be up for the task of gaming, photo editing and watching […]
10/05/2011, For those unfamiliar, there are certain Philips television sets that are able to project colored light onto the wall behind them. It is called the “Ambilight” and is synchronized with the content on screen to create a more immersive effect while watching your shows. However if you don’t see the need to buy a brand new television set just for Ambilight, but would like to have it anyway, here’s how […]
