CES - Samsung, LG to show new LCD panels at CES

Samsung will unveil a double-sided LCD panel for cell phones at the CES show in Las Vegas this week.

At this week's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Samsung Electronics Co. will unveil a double-sided LCD (liquid crystal display) panel that can show different images on each side.

The 2.22-inch display is the first that can show different images on either side of the display, Samsung said. The company, which is one of the world's largest manufacturers of LCD panels, said other double-sided displays can only show a reverse image of the same video data on the other side.

The panel is designed for use in clamshell cell phones where the main display faces inwards and typically a sub-display faces outwards. The entire display is 3.85 millimeters thick which is a millimeter thinner than modules used in current phones so it could help manufacturers produce slimmer cell phones.

Samsung will also use CES to unveil a 70-inch, full high definition LCD for use in televisions.

Rival manufacturer LG.Philips LCD Co. will use the massive consumer electronics expo to highlight two power-saving LCD panels for use in televisions, it said.

One is a 42-inch panel that uses 30 percent less power than a conventional model. The second is a 26-inch panel that uses 35 percent less power but manages to produce a brighter picture thanks to the use of an additional white subpixel.

The company will also demonstrate a number of prototypes including a 15-inch monitor panel that has a controllable viewing angle, a 32-inch high-definition TV panel with power consumption of just 65 watts, and a 42-inch high-definition TV panel with a better motion picture response time.

CES runs from Monday until Thursday.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
