Panasonic has released information on its new Premiere Home Theatre Plasma series. The 65in and 50in Panasonic TH-65VX100W and TH-50VX100W are Full HD plasma TVs with a native 1080p resolution.

A 60,000:1 contrast ratio means that deep blacks and bright, clear whites are able to be displayed simultaneously, while an industry-leading 7160 steps of colour gradation allows colours to be displayed accurately and without loss of detail. In addition to targeting home theatre enthusiasts, Panasonic believes the screens are suitable for broadcast and production studios.

A series of picture adjustment options allows professional-grade colour management for 16 categories including colour, contrast, white balance and gamma. These settings can be saved independently for each input, allowing installers or production professionals to tailor the screen for different situations.

Panasonic’s newest generation of Dynamic Black Layer technology allows deep, solid blacks with a new coating to reduce pre-discharge light emissions from plasma cells. The VX100W series televisions feature an optical filter with a colour range covering 120 per cent of the HDTV colour standard, and an 18-bit digital signal processor converts video for optimum display on the panel.

The Panasonic TH-50VX100W plasma TV retails for $7138, while the TH-65VX100W plasma TV is priced at $13,749. Both models are available now.

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.)

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.
