World's first 3D LED-backlit TV coming courtesy Of LG

LG Electronics confirmed the existence of its 3D LED TV set, following a leak last month.

LG announced this Thursday that its upcoming LX9500 will be the worlds first HDTV set to combine a fully-LED-backlit LCD with 3D support.

Word regarding the LX9500 first surfaced last month, when a leaked document revealed LG's roadmap for the coming year. LG opted not to comment on the legitimacy of last month's leak, however the new 3D LED TV has now been confirmed.

The LX9500 will be available in two models, one coming in at 47 inches, and the other a larger model measuring 55 inches. Both of these thin 1080p LED sets come packed with a whole host of features, including USB 2.0, HDMI, integrated Skype software, and of course 3D support.

The sets, which do require you to wear USB-powered glasses, should arrive in Korea within the coming months, beating rival Samsung to market. It'll launch in Europe and the US this May. No pricing details were provided for global markets, but when the LX9500 launches in Korea it is expected to cost around 4.7million South Korean Won, which is roughly $4,000.

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.
