LG announces 3D high definition LCD displays

LG’s display announcement adds a new dimension to their monitor lineup.

South Korea-based LG Display is adding some depth to its monitor lineup with a 23-inch Full HD 3D display.

Details about the new product are fairly scarce, but LG does claim that its Full HD (1920-by-1080 pixel resolution) 3D display offers image quality that's almost twice as crisp as existing 3D monitors, thanks to LG's proprietary "high performance 3D exclusive controller" and "copper bus line", and the display will be able to handle both 2D and 3D images.

No target release date was announced, but the Korea Communications Commission announced plans to start a Full HD 3D broadcast trial service in the second half of 2010, so we'll probably see this display in the next year.

Also, this display will probably require the viewers to wear shutter glasses to see the 3D image, so we can anticipate looking like extras from a low-budget science fiction movie while we're watching our brand new 3D TV.

Expect this to be the first in a wave of 3D display-related announcements that will likely peak at 2010's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). 3D display news has been trickling out for the past year (take a look at Sony's 360 3D display prototype as well as some earlier 3D consumer gear) but it wasn't until Acer's 3D laptop release in October (the Aspire 5738DG-6165) that we started seeing consumer-oriented 3D products hitting the market.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
