Mitsubishi unfurls a 92-inch 3D TV

The yet-unnamed model uses DLP rear-projection technology from Texas Instruments,

Mitsubishi expects its 92-inch 3D TV to be the largest consumer television on the market when it launches mid-year -- even if very few consumers can afford it.

The yet-unnamed model uses DLP rear-projection technology from Texas Instruments, rather than LCD, LED or plasma. It also includes Mitsubishi's Unisen sound system, which projects 5.1 Surround Sound from beam-steered speakers in front of the set.

The biggest obstacle to releasing these humongous TVs is getting enough light onto the screen, Mitsubishi's marketing vice president Frank DeMartin said. The demo unit on display at Mitsubishi's CES booth was set back in a dimly lit alcove, but DeMartin assured me that the television would look fine in well lit rooms.

Other features include four HDMI outputs, USB media playback, a universal remote control and 120 Hz sub-frame rate and the company's StreamTV Internet platform. Unlike smaller televisions that use a matte screen, Mitsubishi has gone glossy in the 92-inch set, which DeMartin said boosts contrast at an added cost

Mitsubishi won't say exactly what the 92-inch TV's price will be, but consider for reference that the company's 82-inch 3D TV costs roughly US$4,000. Expect the price of the 92-inch model to be somewhat higher.

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.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.
