Plasma was thinner than CRT
     Fri, Nov 17 2017 | 9:02A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since displays have moved on from the great, big, hulking boxes of plastic and glass they used to be in the CRT days, there is one trend that has been fairly constant: an increased drive to become ever thinner. Plasma was thinner than CRT by a very dramatic margin. CCFL-backlit LCDs made plasma displays look obese before they were, in their turn, superseded by slimmer LED-backlit LCDs. Then OLED came along and showed how thin a display could really be. But with its aptly-named Moda Slim 245C7QJSB, Philips aims to demonstrate that LCD can still impress in the supermodel stakes.

Logitech MX Ergo Wireless Trackball Review
     Sat, Nov 11 2017 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Trackballs were all the rage a couple of decades back, when mice weren’t nearly as accurate, maintenance-free, or ergonomic as today’s offerings. Logitech was a leader in the space back then, and had a handful of popular trackball designs in its line-up, including – my favorite -- the Trackman Marble. But over time, their popularity waned and mice got infinitely better. Although trackballs never really went away completely, Logitech made some noise recently with the introduction of the MX Ergo. The new Logitech MX Ergo is a modern trackball with increased accuracy, a comfortable design, and lag-free wireless operation complete with a long lasting, rechargeable battery...

It’s pretty sizeable at 31.5in, but unlike many larger screens it’s still packed with features to please the serious gamer.

Matrox Graphics to Feature IP KVM & Quad 4K Enterprise Encoder
     Thu, Aug 31 2017 | 4:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Matrox Graphics will be on hand at IBC 2017 (Amsterdam, Sept. 15–19, stand 7.B29), demonstrating its latest in KVM and encoding products to address extension and AV-over-IP requirements for broadcast applications.

www.pcstats.com

Both recently announced, the Extio 3 IP KVM extender, and the Maevex 6150 quad 4K enterprise encoder appliance will be on display, with Matrox Graphics product experts available to answer questions on the full lineup of multi-display, video wall, KVM, and networked encoding products.

Matrox Extio 3 – Quad-Output 4K IP KVM Extender

Extio 3 sets a new industry standard by securely extending a single 4Kp60 4:4:4 video signal—or four 1080p60 4:4:4 signals—along with keyboard, mouse, stereo audio and USB 2.0 over standard Gigabit Ethernet at unprecedentedly low bitrates.

Extio 3 IP KVM extenders deliver exceptional remote desktop performance and, when combined with standard GigE network switches, create a cost-effective over-IP extension and switching solution, allowing users to securely and instantly switch to any system on the KVM network. Designed to optimize collaboration, Extio 3 provides a secondary H.264 proxy video stream, compatible with H.264 software and hardware decoders, enabling users to view a selected desktop on mobile devices, record it to network-attached storage or display it on a video wall.

Matrox Maevex 6150 - Quad 4K Enterprise Encoder Appliance

The Maevex 6150 quad 4K enterprise encoder appliance is the first in the world to deliver quad 4K input capture and encode, supporting multiple streams (local or to the cloud) and recordings—simultaneously. Integrating seamlessly with standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks, Maevex 6150 delivers zero-latency pass-through for real-time management of audio/video content on up to four 4K displays.

Built on the open-standard H.264 codec, Maevex 6150 offers compatibility with all computers, devices, and networks, including the full range of Maevex Series products as well as third-party technologies. Supporting RTSP, RTMP and HLS streaming protocols, the Maevex 6150 quad encoder appliance can deliver an unlimited number of streams through a wide variety of third-party technologies such as streaming media servers, content delivery networks (CDNs), and others.

Alienware 13 R3 (Amazing OLED screen with QHD resolution)
     Thu, Aug 03 2017 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thankfully the review sample we were sent by Alienware is the Big Kahuna with the OLED screen and a mighty QHD resolution of 2,560×1,440 which is a heck of a lot of pixels packed into a 13.3-inch screen. The screen brightness is 400 nits and it has touch control. Rounding up the specification we have GTX 1060 graphics and an increase to 16GB RAM so it is fair to say the appeal of this particular Alienware 13 R3 stands or falls on the OLED screen (Spoiler alert – it looks amazing).

Philips BDM4350UC 43in 4K IPS Monitor Review
     Sun, Jul 30 2017 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Size matters, and don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. It’s particularly important with 4K screens. Whilst the pixel count gives you bragging rights in itself, viewing 4K on anything smaller than a 27in screen beggars the point a little, as it will be hard to make out the detail compared to the next resolution down. In fact, the larger the better. So how about a 43in 4K screen instead? This is what Philips has on offer with the BDM4350UC.

Absolute smoothness of in-game action is ensured by the built-in G-Sync module, and its ultra-thin screen bezels make it as immersive as they are downright pretty to look at.

Review: Nixeus NX-EDG27 27-inch, 2560×1440 IPS
     Thu, Jul 13 2017 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Several years ago, Nixeus made a huge splash into the gaming monitor market with their Nixeus NX-VUE24, a relatively inexpensive 24-inch, 1080p monitor that was one of the first monitors to feature a 30Hz-144Hz FreeSync range. The monitor did use a TN panel, so color accuracy and viewing angles weren’t as good as its VA or IPS panel competitors, but..."
