LG's new Laser Display gives you 100in of full HD glory

The LG Laser Display is a short throw DLP display that projects 100in of full HD video from just 56cm

LG has today announced the launch of its Laser Display, a short throw DLP display that projects 100in of full HD video onto a specially designed screen.

Unveiled globally in January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Laser Display is technically classified as a display rather than a TV. It is targeted at consumers looking to create a "home cinema experience".

The device consists of a laser DLP device that projects a 100in image to a screen that sits just 56cm from the box. In Australia, the product will be bundled with LG's HR938T, a 1TB twin-tuner recorder and 3D Blu-ray player.

LG Australia's general marketing manager, Lambro Skropidis, said there is a "huge demand" for extra-large displays.

"We are pleased to bring to market another innovation that will broaden our product offering and give our customers an extra-large screen viewing experience; an experience we know there is huge demand for.

"This is a great choice for people who want to create a special home cinema experience at a more accessible price."

Unlike a traditional home theatre projector, which uses mercury-based lamps, the LG Laser Display uses 36 laser diodes. The company says these diodes have a lifespan of 25,000 hours before needing to be replaced, which is equivalent to five hours a day of use for 13 years.

The Laser Display produces just 22db of sound when in operation and the 100in screen claims to have an anti-contrast and anti-glare finish. However, it does not have 3D capabilities.

The LG Laser Display includes a DLP box, a 100in screen, and a twin-tuner recorder & 3D Blu-ray player.

The LG Laser Display will be available in Australia from mid-July and will be sold exclusively through Harvey Norman. The device will retail for $8999 and includes free installation.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
