Acer announces new Ultra High-Resolution monitors for the US market

Today, Acer announced the release of three new ultra high-resolution monitors aimed at enhancing the quality of your computing experience. Of the three new monitors released, two of them are being dubbed as highly ergonomic, while the third is a Windows 8-compatible touchscreen. All three models feature IPS panel displays that offer 178 degrees of uninhibited viewing as well as 100,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio.

Up first is the 27-inch Acer T272HUL that boasts an impressive 2560x1440 pixel resolution, which is officially being given the term "extreme definition." This monitor is able to display 1.07 billion colors across its 10-point touchscreen. Featuring a silver asymmetrical stand and a clear plastic edge that extends always down to the desktop surface, this sleek, ultramodern monitor is the perfect choice for Windows 8 users looking for that ultra high definition experience.

 

Up next, we have the two more normal looking monitors, the B276HUL and the B296CL. The smaller 27-inch model features a 2560x1440 pixel resolution, while the much larger 29-inch screen features a smaller resolution of 2560x1080 pixels. Both models are capable of displaying 16.7 million colors and feature a base that allows the screen to rotate into portrait orientation. Both monitors feature DVI-D, Display Port, and two HDMI ports. Additionally, a four port USB 3.0 hub is present.

 

Both of the latter models retail for $599, while the 27-inch touchscreen will set you back about $1000. No information has been released yet on availability, but I think I may be in line for three of the 29 inch models when they hit store shelves.

LG unveils three new UltraWide 21:9 IPS LED monitors

Today, LG Electronics announced three new additions to its IPS 21:9 UltraWide line of PC monitors. LG says that "the new monitors enable users to work on multiple files simultaneously as well as maximize their movie and gaming experience." The three new models--29EA73, 29EB73 and 29MA73--all feature LG's 29-inch IPS 21:9 display but differ in feature sets.

The 29MS73 model features a built-in TV tuner as well as the new Extra View picture and teacher feature that gives users the ability to access TV schedules, smartphone games, and other content in the extra window while watching TV at the same time. The 29EB73 model features an ergonomic adjustable stand that makes it easy to reposition the monitor to a comfortable height to reduce neck strain, stress, and to create a more productive work environment. It appears that the 29EA73 is a normal PC monitor with not many extra features.

 

All of the new UltraWide monitors feature a new enhanced four-screen split feature which automatically divides this display into four segments to allow quick and easy multitasking from the desktop. The segments are repositionable with just a few mouse clicks and there is a built-in Dual Link-up feature that allows users to simultaneously access and view information stored from to external devices such as smartphones or other PCs.

Sub-$5000 4K-capable TVs are making their way Down Under

Not even two days ago, TCL announced their new 50-inch 4K-capable TV for the US market, costing only $999. Australian's are usually the last market that most companies cater for, but TCL have decided to go Down Under early.

 

TweakTown image news/3/2/32052_07_sub_5000_4k_capable_tvs_are_now_available_down_under.jpg

 

The company have announced the TCL E5691, which is a 65-inch edge-lit LED 4K/UHD TV, for $4999. Expensive, but considering high-end 65-inch 1080p HDTVs are around that price in Australia, you can't complain too much. TCL will be cramming in SMS on Demand, SMH.TV, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other apps into the TV. As for inputs, we have three HDMI inputs, 3D-support, and a USB port that supports Time Shift PVR settings.

 

The TCL T5691 provides a 4096x2160 resolution, and will upscale HD content to 4K, meaning that your Blu-ray movies will look a little nicer than they usually do. TCL will be releasing other sizes, which has my interest more. We start with the 40-inch for $899, a 46-inch model for $1199, a 50-inch version for $1399 and a non-3D version that comes in 32-inch for $549.

LG unveil two new 21:9 'ultra-widescreen' displays

It looks like LG has some faith in the 21:9 "ultra-widescreen" display market, as the South Korean company have just unveiled two new displays. Both displays are 29-inch ultra-widescreen, with the model numbers of 29EA73-P, and 29EB73-P.

TweakTown image news/3/1/31997_02_lg_unveil_two_new_21_9_ultra_widescreen_displays.jpg

 

Both 29-inch screens feature a native 2560x1080 resolution, dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, two HDMI ports (one of which is MHL-capable). Both displays feature USB 3.0, 7W speakers and audio out. The difference between the displays is in design, and dimensions. Full details below:

 

29EA73-P

  • Size: 699.7 x 387.0 x 197.2mm, 5.9kg (Including a stand)
  • Maximum resolution: 2560 x 1080 dot
  • Display colors: About 16.7 million colors
  • Input terminal: DVI-D(Dual-Link), HDMI x 2(MHL x 1), Display Port, USB hub (Up x 1/DownUSB3.0 x 2, USB2.0 x 1), Audio input

TCL announce their new 50-inch 4K-capable TV, costs just $999

TCL have just come out swinging with their new 50-inch 4K-capable TV, which will be released in the United States for a price of just $999. Seriously, these companies need to start making these cheap 4K displays available in Australia.

 

TweakTown image news/3/1/31994_07_tcl_announce_their_new_50_inch_4k_capable_tv_costs_just_999.jpg

 

TCL's Ultra HD TV features the GPU-crushing 3840x2160 resolution and boasts SRS TruSurroundHD on-board. We have 50,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate. In order to get to the $999 price, TCL have decided to just ship it as a display, without any smart TV features built in.

 

But, most people have a PC, media player or gaming console they'll be hooking up to it, so they won't be missing their Hulu or Netflix. It's just a pity that no one serves 4K media yet. I'd love me some Breaking Bad, Mad Men or Homeland in 4K.

AOC's E1659FWU is a 16-inch USB 3.0-powered portable monitor

We checked out DisplayLink's technology at Computex Taipei 2013, and fell in love with it so much we awarded it with our Best of Computex 2013 for Technology.

 

TweakTown image news/3/1/31930_01_aoc_s_e1659fwu_is_a_16_inch_usb_3_0_powered_portable_monitor.jpg

 

Well, the company have teamed up with AOC and made the AOC E1659FWU, which is a portable 16-inch monitor that is completely powered over USB 3.0. The AOC E1659FWU includes its own monitor carry case for total ease of use, which allows it to fit into most notebook bags. It is compatible with both PC and Mac, and has a 15.6-inch viewing window with a resolution of 1366x768 at 60Hz.

 

The peak power consumption of AOC's new E1659FWU is just 7W. AOC even throw in the carry case for free, which is great considering it is available for pre-order right now through Amazon for just $139.

Dell unveils their new UltraSharp 32, a 32-inch 4K display that will arrive later this year

I'm still looking forward to unboxing my first 4K, or Ultra HD, display, but until then I can only dream. But, during SIGGRAPH this week, Dell unveiled their new UltraSharp 32.

 

TweakTown image news/3/1/31901_01_dell_unveils_their_new_ultrasharp_32_a_32_inch_4k_display_that_will_arrive_later_this_year.jpg

 

Dell's UltraSharp 32 is a 32-inch 4K-capable display that features an IGZO-based 3840x2160 display. Beautiful. Dell has opted for an aluminum stand, which replaces their usual plastic-based stand in previous models. The usual height adjustment is at play, and the UltraSharp 32 is jam-packed full of display inputs.

 

TweakTown image news/3/1/31901_02_dell_unveils_their_new_ultrasharp_32_a_32_inch_4k_display_that_will_arrive_later_this_year.jpg

 

We have miniDisplayPort ports, HDMI, a built-in USB hub and an SD card reader. Dell haven't told us how much we can expect it to suck from our bank accounts just yet, but we should all prepare for Q4 of this year, just in time for the holidays.

Samsung to launch their 55-inch curved OLED TV in the US this week, close your eyes and hand over $15,000

If you've got a spare $15,000 laying around, and let's face it, who hasn't these days* then you should consider buying Samsung's 55-inch curved OLED TV that is set to launch in the US this week.

 

TweakTown image news/3/1/31877_02_samsung_to_launch_their_55_inch_curved_oled_tv_in_the_us_this_week_close_your_eyes_and_hand_over_15_000.jpg

 

The South Korean electronics giant are set to send the 55-inch curved OLED HDTV to "select dealers" in the United States this week. One of which will be New York-based Value Electronics, who says their shipment is already on its way. Prepare your credit cards, folks, because $15,000 for a single TV is quite insane.

 

*ultimate form of sarcasm.

LG shows off super thin display, could it make its way to the Optimus G2?

LG has been one of the leading innovators of flat-panel display technology since their inception and now the company has just put everyone else to shame by unveiling the world's slimmest full HD panel for handsets.

 

TweakTown image news/3/1/31659_1_lg_shows_off_super_thin_display_could_it_make_its_way_to_the_optimus_g2.jpg

 

The display panel measures that just a mere 2.2 mm thick with an unbelievably small 2.3 mm bezel and overall size of 5.2 inches diagonal. This display has conveniently surfaced just in time for LG's upcoming Optimus G2, which looks to be sporting a micro thin bezel in all of the leaked images we have seen.

 

The display features a full HD 1920x1080 pixel resolution, and LG says that the display is poised to provide excellent visibility under strong sunlight conditions. The new display is designed around LG's Advanced One-Glass-Solution technology.

ASUS' PQ321Q 31.5-inch 4K monitor goes up for pre-order

Something I loved at Computex this year was ASUS' 31.5-inch 4K monitor, the PQ321Q. We even thought it was so good that we gave it our 'Best of Computex 2013' award for best gadget. It is priced at $3,499 but features the pixel-crushing 3840x2160 resolution, blowing most displays out of the water for screen real estate.

 

TweakTown image news/3/1/31524_03_asus_pq321q_31_5_inch_4k_monitor_goes_up_for_pre_order.jpg

 

ASUS' PQ321Q features a 140PPI pixel density, and uses Sharp's IGZO technology, or Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide. IGZO have some great benefits, such as higher image quality compared to normal LCD's, all while using less power. IGZO also has each transistor in the display be made smaller, which allows for higher pixel density, and thinner screens.

 

The ASUS PQ321Q is 35mm thick at its deepest point, not counting the stand, which ASUS say is the thinnest wallmountable 4K display on the market. We have a 176-degree viewing angle, 10-bit color depth, 350 cd/m2 brightness rating, 8ms GTG response time and built-in speakers. DisplayPort and HDMI are on the PQ321Q for connectivity.
