LG Cinema 3D TVs available in Australia from April

LG Cinema 3D TVs use passive 3D glasses

LG has announced that its range of Cinema 3D plasma and LED televisions will be on sale in Australia from April onwards, with two models already available for purchase. LG’s Cinema 3D TVs will also include a variety of Smart TV Internet features.

LG’s PZ570 series plasma TVs are already in stores — the LG 60PZ570 is a 60in plasma available for $2599, and the 50in LG 50PZ570 only costs $1699. Pricing has also been announced for the range-topping PZ950 series — the 60in LG 60PZ950 is $2899 while the 50in LG 50PZ950 is $1999. Three different series in LG’s LW LED-backlit LCD TV range of Cinema 3D TVs will be available from the end of April, with the LG LW6500 joined by a cheaper LW4500 and high-end Infinia LW9500, although pricing is not yet available for these televisions.

LG’s Cinema 3D TVs use passive 3D — the glasses used in Cinema 3D TVs are cross-polarised like those used in movie theatres, and do not require any battery power to operate — unlike active-shutter 3D glasses which are commonly used in [artnid:344082|3D TVs]] from Sony, Samsung and Panasonic. The use of passive 3D removes the ‘flickering’ effect that occurs when active-shutter 3D glasses are used in a room lit by fluorescent light bulbs. Passive 3D glasses also have the advantage of being much cheaper, with two pairs of glasses available for a recommended retail price of $19. Four sets of glasses will be included with high-end LG TVs.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
