Samsung to launch thin Blu-ray Disc player at CES

Samsung will unveil a Blu-ray Disc player that's 39 millimeters thick at this week's CES in Las Vegas, it said Monday.

It's not just televisions that are slimming down for this week's International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Samsung, which has already said it plans to unveil a 7-millimeter thick TV at the show, will also be taking the wraps off a new Blu-ray Disc player that's 39mm thick.

Few details of the player, including perhaps most importantly the price and launch dates, were immediately available. They are expected to come on Wednesday when Samsung is scheduled to hold a news conference at CES.

But photos issued by the consumer electronics maker on Monday showed the Blu-ray Disc player to have a gently curved top and the piano black finish that is currently so popular with consumer electronics products.

It will be shown along with new home theater systems and big-screen TVs that can be hung on the wall. Samsung, like other TV makers, is developing thinner flat-panel TVs and at CES will also show new wall mounts that enable the panels to be placed closer to the wall for an overall lower profile.

CES begins in Las Vegas on Thursday.

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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
