In Pictures: CES 2014 Fails

The gadgets and goings-on we'd rather forget

IZON glasses-free 3D TV — Not there yet We saw a few tech demos of glasses-free 3D TV technology at CES, and both Ultra-D from Stream Networks and Vizio’s Dolby 3D implementation were impressive.

Unfortunately, IZON’s version looked all kinds of wrong. The edges of objects were weirdly visible, almost jagged. The LED edge-lit LCD had washed-out colors.

And while Vizio’s and Stream Networks’ versions were strictly 4K, the IZON sets are 1080p. Here’s hoping the company can iron out some of the kinks before the projected third-quarter release, because what we saw on the show floor actually made us miss those clunky 3D glasses. —Susie Ochs

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
