Dell has been shipping 30-inch LCDs for years now and I have been using one of the original 30-inch units and wouldn't give it up for anything. The new LCD is an improvement on the original LCD with a lot of nice new features and a big price tag. This may be the best LCD for gamers looking to play with high resolutions.
The screen has a 16:10 aspect ratio and uses IPS technology. The resolution for the LCD is 2560 x 1600 and it has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio. The dynamic contrast ratio for the screen is 100,000:1 and the screen can display 1.07 billion colors, which is way more than my original 30-inch LCD can handle. The screen has a 7ms response time so ghosting should not be an issue.

I think that we would be hard pressed to actually consider anything with the Christie name on it to be a value offering. Christie makes some of the best projectors anywhere, but they also tend to be some of the most expensive projectors around. You have probably seen a Christie projector in action at your local theater.
Christie has unveiled a new E-series of projectors that it considers the value line. The new series includes the DHD670-E and the DWU670-E. The projectors share the same basic features, but do differ in one key area. The common features include 1-chip DLP tech with up to 6,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 5000:1 contrast ratio. The dual mercury lamp configuration makes the projectors bright enough for large or medium size conference rooms and other locations

Zowie and BenQ plan to bring new LCDs to market that have the same sort of performance we got from those big CRT screens. The new screen will use the latest LED backlighting tech.
Some interesting stats down under have emerged in relation to how fast homes are adopting new technologies; in this case, digital television.
