Samsung shows off sweet new Super PLS LCD

One of the most compelling reasons for me to upgrade to the iPhone 4 from my iPhone 3GS (other than the cracked screen on my 3GS) was that the iPhone 4 has a much better screen. The quality of the screen is one of the biggest reasons that media consuming smartphone users will use to upgrade to a new device. That is assuming that a geek needs any reason at all to upgrade other than a new device is available.

LG to introduce 23-inch 240Hz IPS LCD panel

LG today announced the launch of a 23-inch 240Hz LCD for monitors that refreshes at an insane 240 frames per second. Being a fan of 120Hz gaming myself, I find this highly interesting - wouldn't mind testing one out myself! (wink TT gods, wink).

 

news/1/7/17713_293.jpg

 

The full HD 23-inch 240Hz panel was developed by combing 120Hz tech with scanning backlight tech which enables a backlight to repeatedly turned on and off. The standard refresh rate of most LCD monitors is 60Hz, with 120Hz entering the market in the last 18 months (being pushed for NVIDIA 3D Vision mostly) a 240Hz refresh would significantly refuse motion blur - gamers alike, crying with joy.

TechOn gets engineers to tear down Sony Google TV

We really like our teardowns around here. If you take your shiny new gadgets and rip them apart so we can see if the are as pretty inside as you we will watch. We may make fun of you behind your back for killing a perfectly good gadget, but we will watch. Generally, a tear down involves a geek and your average set of tools. TechOn has torn down one of Sony's Google TV sets and had to get help from some engineers to do it.

After laying the Sony NSX-24GT1 on its screen, the tear down started with the simple removal of a few screws to open the case up. Things quickly became much more complicated as the engineers helping with the tar down got into the boards the set uses. There are gobs of cables inside there with three circuit boards with one being the TV board and one an Android board and the other a power supply.

Planar unveils new SA2311W NVIDIA 3D Vision certified LCD

Gamers tend to drive many trends in the consumer electronics world. For years, the only way you got anything 3D in the home was if you had a PC and were playing with a stereoscopic 3D driver. Some of the 3D games that NVIDIA had optimized drivers for looked good. Gamers will pay the money it costs for 3D gear in the home before your average TV watcher will and the gamer will wear the glasses that 3D requires while many people are holding at for 3D TVs that need no glasses.

If you are a gamer looking to step up to NVIDIA 3D vision gaming a new LCD is now available for you to pick up. Other than a compatible NVIDIA video card, all you need for 3D gaming action is a LCD with 120Hz refresh rate and the NVIDIA 3D Vision glasses. The Planar SA2311W LCD is a 23-inch wide 1920 x 1080 resolution LCD that has a 2ms refresh rate. That should give the screen plenty of speed to support gaming and fast action without any video issues.
