By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Jan 12, 2016 3:39 am

CES 2016 - I don't know how this got past my uber news reporting skills, but ASUS unveiled the world's first single-capable portable monitor at CES 2016.

The new MB169C+ is based off of the USB 3.0-based MB168B+ but adds USB Type-C into the mix on its 15.6-inch display. It still weighs in at just 800g, but adds 0.5mm of thinkness to the mix, with it measuring in at 8.5mm thick. The USB Type-C model also shifts to an IPS panel, versus the TN panel of its predecessor.

 

The new ASUS MB169C+ will work from any PC or device running USB Type-C, including the Nokia N1 tablet, the new Apple MacBook, Google's latest Chromebook Pixel and any PC toting USB Type-C connectivity. The Verge expects the ASUS MB169C+ to be priced at between $200 and $300.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Jan 11, 2016 1:56 am

CES 2016 - As most of you know, I'm a huge UltraWide enthusiast, so when I saw that ASUS were teasing their upcoming ROG Swift PG348Q, I added it to my list of must haves.

 

 

Our friends over at PC Perspective had some time with it, with the ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q featuring a beautiful, aggressive design. Specs wise, we have a 34-inch 3440x1440 IPS-based display, 100Hz refresh rate, and NVIDIA's G-Sync technology.

 

We're looking at around $1300 for the ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q, making it double the price of the Oculus Rift that everyone's complaining about - priced at $599.

LG amazes with its new HDR-enabled 4K Signature OLED TVs

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Jan 10, 2016 5:52 am

CES 2016 - We have already had our socks blown off by the current 4K OLED TVs from LG, but the new Signature 4K OLED TVs are really something else. Why? HDR. That's why.

 

 

The new HDR-enabled Signature 4K OLED TVs are impossibly thin and completely beautiful. With black levels you could stare at for hours, and insanely deep colors, LG has it in the bag when it comes to enthusiast TVs. Their new Signature 4K OLED TV has a beautiful glass body, and is just 2.5mm thick - this includes a speaker system that is built into the stand, too.

 

LG will be rolling out their new Signature 4K OLED TVs in March, but were silent when it came to pricing. I did ask if we'll see FreeSync or G-Sync TVs from LG in the future, but they didn't have too much to say... yet.

Dell's new 4K OLED costs $4999, runs off of a single USB Type-C cable

By: Jeff Williams | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Jan 7, 2016 2:41 am

CES 2016 - Dell just dropped a massive announcement on us at CES this year. Coming March 31st 2016 they'll have a 30-inch 4K OLED screen, the UP3017Q that supports 100% of the Adobe RGB color gamut and 97.3% of the DCI-P3 color gamut that's very useful for creative professionals

 

dell-announces-30-inch-4k-oled-monitor-97-8-dci-p3-color-gamut_14

 

This new wonder-monitor comes with only one USB 3.1 Type-C used for the display, data and for power up to 100W of power. One cable to rule them all that clears out cable-clutter. Not as immediately as cool is a presence detector that senses when you're in front of the monitor, and turns it off when you aren't, to help reduce burn-in.

 

This is being targeted at the professional segment, so it's $4999 price-tag is a little more palpable when you're doing color critical work with equipment that probably costs more than the monitor anyway.

ViewSonic's new 27-inch 2560x1440 monitor hits 165Hz with G-Sync

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Jan 6, 2016 6:31 pm

ViewSonic's new XG2073-GS features a 27-inch 2560x1440 "SuperClear IPS-type" panel, with a refresh rate of 165Hz. Not only that, but it also supports NVIDIA's G-Sync technology, but the price is going to put most off: $1217. Considering the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q is only $799 in comparison, ASUS wins the game without swinging a punch.

The new 77- and 65-inch G6 series, alongside the 65-inch and 55-inch E6 series flagship models are super-thin, with a depth of only a tenth of an inch behind the screen. They are beautiful with translucent glass backs, bezels that are next to nonexistent, and forward-facing soundbar speakers.

 

LG's new 2016 4K OLED TVs feature something LG is calling "HDR Pro", with the new TVs being the first that LG are shipping that support all HDR formats - including HDR10 and DolbyVision. They all include the updated webOS 3.0 Smart TV platform, with LG even teasing HDR YouTube videos here in Las Vegas.

 

We are meeting with LG later today where we should get some eyes-on time with these amazing new TVs, even a new 8K TV that LG is showing off.
