Asus PA246Q display
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 4:26P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’re witnessing an oversaturation of the wide-use monitor market. The price range has shrunk so much that something simply has to be pushed out on the cheaper end, while something new has to appear to refresh the more expensive one. ASUS’ PA246Q doesn’t seem connected to this story in any way at first. It’s clearly labelled Pro and has a red line on it, so that it matches a DSLR objective, which is all that pros look for, right? The frame around the display contains metric and imperial unit scales, while the stand is optimised for measuring swivel angle in degrees. A separate button, clearly labelled with a removable sticker, calls several different templates, such as the centimetre net or A4 paper format. These are displayed over the image coming from your PC, supposedly significantly speeding up some processes in the graphics editing department. How these are better than the graphics tools on your PC, and why anyone would change the DPI settings of the PC to match those of the monitor, just so as to approximately place the image onto a rarely used paper format in professional publications, remains a mystery to us…

Matrox DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP Multi-Monitor Adapter

Matrox DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP Multi-Monitor Adapters Now Compatible with New Thunderbolt-Enabled MacBook Pro

Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced that the Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition and TripleHead2Go DP Edition are now compatible with the latest Apple® MacBook® Pro notebooks featuring the new Thunderbolt™ port. Developed by Intel® and brought to market with technical collaboration from Apple, the high speed I/O port sets a new standard for high performance peripherals. DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP are already the preferred multi-display solutions of many Mac® users. With a simple Matrox firmware update, these solutions can also be used to achieve unprecedented dual- and triple-monitor performance including OpenGL® support on the new Thunderbolt-enabled MacBook Pro. The new software release will also add the 2x1400x1050 multi-projector resolution to the already comprehensive supported resolution list.


"DualHead2Go DP and TripleHead2Go DP deliver workstation-class, multi-display performance for the most demanding media creators and CAD designers," said Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics, Inc. "We're happy to provide continuous support to our Mac users by enabling Thunderbolt compatibility on our Graphics eXpansion Modules."

The Matrox DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXMs) work in conjunction with your system's existing GPU to provide high-quality, uncompressed graphics and video across maximum resolutions of dual 1920x1200 and triple 1360x768 under Mac. With the additional desktop display area, MacBook Pro users can run different applications on each monitor or view one application across multiple displays, eliminating the tedious and time-consuming tasks of re-sizing, re-arranging, and re-organizing multiple windows. Notebook users can further enhance their productive workflow by using their laptop's LCD as a third—or fourth—monitor to achieve an unprecedented level of computing efficiency. GXMs are also compatible with Microsoft® Windows® operating systems.

The new software is available on the Matrox driver download web pages, while the Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition (Part #: D2G-DP-MIF) and TripleHead2Go DP Edition (Part #: T2G-DP-MIF) are available for purchase from authorized Matrox resellers worldwide or, in North America and Europe, directly from Matrox.

ASUS PA246Q ProArt 24” IPS Professional Monitor
     Fri, May 13 2011 | 12:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many discerning users, the current crop of inexpensive 24" monitors sporting TN technology don't even come close to offering the quality they are looking for. Unfortunately, stepping up to an IPS-totting panel meant shelling out well over $600 but ASUS is now offering another route. Their ProArt 24" monitor seems to offer the impossible: an IPS panel, factory calibrated settings and good response times for under $500. Is this too good to be true?

Samsung UN55C9000 55 inch 3D LED TV Review
     Mon, May 02 2011 | 4:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Flip through any magazine and you’ll see that sex sells and an ultra thin 55? 3D LED TV is just downright sexy in any room! Mouths drop in awe when friends come over and see what I have in the living room. Picture quality is just as important to how a TV looks and the UN55C9000 has one of the best displays Samsung has ever made. The colors stand out and the LED backlight highlights dark scenes extremely well. Not to be outdone by any 3D TV on the market, the UN55C9000 comes fully equipped with 3D playback as well as wireless LAN for media streaming and Internet browsing.

ASUS N53’s (N53SV-A1) exterior
     Sat, Apr 23 2011 | 4:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There are a few rough edges. The display of the N53 is quite poor for a laptop of this price, and the squishy keyboard is a nasty oversight in a laptop with an otherwise luxurious finish. However, these problems are tolerable considering this laptop’s performance. The ASUS N53 is a hardware powerhouse; indeed, it’s a testament to the fact that computer processors – quick though they may be – still have significant room for improvement in the future, and those improvements will positively impact the quality of the computer you receive for your money."

Asus G73SW
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:23P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Asus G73SW is a 17.3-inch desktop replacement laptop with a gamer appeal with a quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a dedicated Nvidia graphics processor. Other features include a 1080p HD display, a 1TB hard drive and very speedy performance.”

ASUS ML248H 24” Monitor
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:44P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has a wide range of monitors which run the gamut from ultra high end professional products to more reasonably priced units. While the ML248H lies closer to the bottom of their product stack in terms of overall price, it definitely doesn't skimp on features and is supposed to offer some reasonable image quality as well. But can this sub-$225 24" monitor overcome the limitations of its TN panel?

brite-View Air SyncHD Wireless HDMI Bridge Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 3:30P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If wirelessly transmitting a Blu-ray stream (which tops out around 50mbps) is questionable, transmitting uncompressed 1080p/60 video seems downright impossible. Yet, that is exactly what brite-View claims to do with their Air SyncHD transmission kit. In a nutshell, the brite-View Air SyncHD transmission kit promises to wirelessly bridge an HDMI source device and HDMI receiving device, freeing you to place the devices anywhere within the system’s wireless range. Further, the system manages to send 1080p/60 video, audio and infrared (IR) with less than one millisecond latency up to 66 feet. It sounds great on paper, but can it deliver?

Asus PA246Q ProArt 24-Inch LCD Monitor Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we heard Asus was coming out with a P-IPS display, we were a bit taken aback at the thought of Asus getting into the high end monitor game. But as the old cliche goes, there's a first time for everything, and the PA246Q ProArt 24-inch LCD monitor is Asus' first foray into the professional display market. Every other monitor Asus has come out with has been of the TN variety, some of them very good, but there's a clear divide between what you get with an IPS panel and a TN display. The former boasts better viewing angles, much improved color accuracy, and in recent times have even proved up to the task of gaming...

     Mon, Apr 18 2011 | 4:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Dell V715w, an MFP (multifunction printer), has the features, output quality, and paper capacity suitable for a home or micro office, and is also up to doing double duty as a home printer. It includes fax, ADF, auto-duplexer, LCD screen for previewing photos, and slots for memory cards and USB key.”

LG Flatron E2050 20-inch LED Widescreen LCD Monitor Review
     Wed, Mar 30 2011 | 12:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having a great LCD makes your computer experience even better, no one wants to be using an old washed out LCD. LG is a name you may not think of when talking about LCD monitors, but after reading this review you just might. LG’s flagship LED model series, the E50 is just .69 inches thick, and boasts mega ratio contrast technology, resulting in an extremely clear and natural picture quality built into the ultra slim and stylish design. The series is comprised of 3 different models, today we will be taking a look at the E2050 20-inch model. Geeks.com was nice enough to send us the E2050 20-inc h LED Widescreen LCD Monitor to review. Geeks.com is a great place to find LCD Computer Monitors."

Samsung DualView TL205
     Sat, Mar 26 2011 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Samsung DualView TL205 is a unique digital camera with two LCD displays: one on the front and one on the back. It has a resolution of 12-megapixels and is definitely both budget-friendly and geared toward the point-and-shoot photographer."

Acer Veriton Z290G-UD525W
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 12:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Acer Veriton Z290G-UD525W is a one-trick pony: It's one of the cheapest touchscreen-equipped all-in-one desktop PCs on the market, but is best suited for data-entry or management applications like cash register and concierge desk managers. It's too slow to keep mainline clerical workers productive if they multitask or run any sort of multimedia software.”

Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 4:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Part desktop display and part HDTV, the Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD is an attractive 24-inch hybrid monitor that won't break the bank. Geared towards users with space constraints, it delivers good HD imagery and sharp text, but it has tinting and uniformity issues.”
