When Apple discontinued their Thunderbolt Display, many were wondering if this meant that the company could be planning a newer model. Instead, it seems that Apple decided to turn to third-party manufacturers like LG who created an Apple-exclusive series of UltraFine monitors for the company’s Mac lineup.
Monitors come in varying refresh rates and they’re usually set to a particular refresh rate by default, but did you know that you can actually increase or decrease your monitor’s refresh rate?
Apple’s Pro Display XDR costs a small fortune, but then again, it is targeted more towards professionals who might be able to appreciate such features, as opposed to regular consumers looking for a new monitor. However, if you want to complete your Apple setup, there might be some good news on that front.
When we think of smart TVs, we think of TVs that come with features like the ability to support apps, streaming services, and more. However, it seems that Sony is really trying to redefine what we know as a smart TV because ahead of CES 2021, the company has announced a new lineup of Bravia TVs that will be powered by Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR.
When it comes to console gaming, a lot of times console gamers tend to favor TVs. This is because you can get a bigger TV for a cheaper price compared to a monitor with similar specs, plus the way consoles are designed, they’re typically played in the living room where the TV is kept anyway.
Monitors come in various shapes and sizes, and these days we’re starting to see ultrawide monitors become more popular. If you’re looking for a similar setup, then you might be interested to learn that Dell has since announced their latest monitor that they’re adding to their lineup – a 40-inch ultrawide curved display.
If there’s one thing to look forward to at every CES, it would be display technology. This is because without fail, every year companies like Samsung, LG, Sony, and others show off new and exciting display technology that could change the way we use our devices, and give us new experiences.
We’re sure that many of you have come across automatic sliding doors that have advertisements plastered on them. This isn’t exactly new, but it seems that LG might be interested in leveraging their display technology by teaming up with Assa Abloy (who owns Yale) by creating automatic doors with OLED display panels.
When it comes to monitor mounting solutions, everyone has a preference. There are those who are perfectly fine with the stand that their monitors come with, but for others, they might prefer an arm so that it leaves more space on their desks, and depending on how many monitors you’re using, you might have multiple arms or mounts.
One of the advantages of game streaming is the ability for gamers to play games on almost any device that can connect to the internet, and not have to worry about things like hardware compatibility, whether or not their device has enough power to run those games, and so on, and this is an opportunity that Microsoft is looking to take advantage of.
According to the official specs listed by Apple, Apple’s new M1 powered Mac mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro will only support anywhere between 1-2 external displays. This is versus the Intel-powered variants that can support more, but is the limit of 1-2 displays true? It turns out not really.
There are people who choose to use a TV as a monitor for their PCs, but there are reasons why monitors are still preferred over TVs, such as size, refresh rate, response time, and so on. However, why can’t you have the best of both worlds? That’s something that Samsung seems to think is possible with its new Samsung M7 display.
A popular setup used by MacBook owners is to dock their laptops on a stand and attach one or two monitors to it. However, with the new M1 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, users can still attach external displays to the laptops, but unfortunately the number of displays have been reduced to just one.
A good majority of our computer monitors are using LCD panels, although there are some that rely on LEDs and some that use mini LEDs. If you’re looking for a mini LED monitor, then Dell might have you covered as the company has since announced the Dell UltraSharp 32 HDR PremierColor Monitor.
When it comes to monitors, the majority of displays out there come with a standard base refresh rate of 60Hz. There are some that are designed for gamers that offer up faster refresh rates like 144Hz, but in case that’s still not enough for your needs, you might want to check out Alienware’s latest monitor offering.
When it comes to monitors, it typically does not discriminate between operating systems. As long as you have the right cable and connector, you should be good to go whether you’re using a Windows PC or a Mac computer. However, sometimes there might be some monitors better optimized for certain platforms, like LG’s UltraFine 5K display for Macs.
You must have heard about the new folding smartphones by Motorola and Samsung (RAZR and Galaxy Z Flip, respectively).Even though you consider those to be the next big innovations – TCL’s leaked photos of its prototype smartphone (originally shared by CNET) adds more competition to the table.It looks like the upcoming TCL smartphone might end up offering an expandable display (meaning, you can slide-out the extension of a screen) as […]
The size of our smartphone displays have come a very long way since back in the day. However, we imagine that there probably still several instances where we wished we had a bigger screen. Now according to a report out of Korea, it seems that both Samsung and LG could be working on a solution.
With regular consumer-grade displays, the refresh rates aren’t particularly high because to be honest, not everyone sees the need for it. However, if you’re working professionally or if you’re a gamer, then having higher refresh rates can actually be useful and could also give you a slight advantage.
In the TV market, Samsung and LG are two of the more prominent makers of OLED televisions, but it looks like we can add yet another manufacture to the list in the form of Vizio. At CES 2020, the company announced that they will be adding OLED TVs to their lineup, where the 2020 lineup includes a variety of TVs ranging from low-end to higher-end OLEDs.
