I am a big fan of projectors for several uses. I like to watch movies with a really big image size and I like to play games on a giant screen. I have some fond gaming memories of playing Need for Speed Most Wanted with a 70-inch projected image on the wall.
If you like projectors, but your room is small, NEC has a couple new short throw options for you. The projectors are the NP510WS and the NP610S. Both offer the same short throw design and similar specs. They feature virtual remote control directly from a computer, closed captioning, vertical keystone, Auto Power ON, and 7-watt speakers.
Both projectors have an ECO mode that extends lamp life to 5000 hours while reducing noise and power consumption. Connectivity options include VGA, DVI, and an RJ45 connector is built-in. Both are set to ship in January with the 510 going for $949 and the 610 selling for $999.
I am a big fan of projectors for many uses. I like to watch my favorite movies on a big screen and I like to play video games on a big screen too. And by big I don't mean 50-inches; I want 100-inches or more. NEC has announced a couple new projectors aimed at businesses and educations that would be used at home too, if your room is big enough.
The projectors are the NP2200 and the NP1200. They share many of the same features including a 1024 x 768 resolution, 600:1 contrast ratio, optional lenses, closed captioning, and 5-watt speakers. The things can throw an image up to 500-inches. That's what I am talking about.
The two differ in brightness with the NP2200 boasting 4200 ANSI lumens and the NP1200 offering 3700 lumens. Both also have an ECO Mode that uses only 0.4W at idle. The NP2200 sells for $2399 and the NP1200 sells for $1999. Those prices are presumably with no lens.
I bought myself one of Dell's 30-inch LCDs with the WQXGA 2560 x 1600 resolution years ago. The screen is fantastic for working and when it comes time for gaming the high resolution of the screen is awesome. 30-inch LCDs have long been the only items supporting the high resolution.
Projectiondesign has announced a new projector called the F35 that boasts a resolution of 2560 x 1600. The projector is the first to use the new Texas Instruments WQXGA DLP chip. The F35 has a brightness of 6500 ANSI lumens.
The contrast ratio is 8000:1 and the screen can throw an image up to 20 meters. Man would I like to play Modern Warfare 2 on a 50-foot screen, that would rock. Pricing is unknown and the projector will debut in the second half of 2010.
My hobbies aren't exactly green. I like fast computers and fast cars, both of which don't scrimp on consuming power in the form of electricity or gas. If you prefer to be green in your computer use, NEC has a new display for you.
The display is LED backlit and is called the MultiSync EA222WMe. The display has the same brightness as other displays while consuming 20% less power. The screen uses 52% less power than previous generation NEC displays and produces 61% less heat.
The display is ENERGY STAR 5.0, TCO 5.0 and EPEAT Gold compliant. The screen resolution is 1680 x 1050 and the LCD has a 30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The screen brightness is 250 cd/m2 and the display has a 4-way ergonomic stand.

I would really like a second monitor on my desktop, but I can't fit a full-size screen on my desk thanks to the massive size of the 30-inch LCD I normally use. I can fit a smaller 7-inch LCD on the desktop though along the lines of the MIMO iMo Pivot Touch.

A new 21.5-inch monitor from Dell has just been unveiled which in basic terms carries the same specs as the existing SX2210 model. However, the new SX2210T adds support for multitouch input whereby you can use your finger or a stylus. Dell state that it has a +/- 2.5mm accuracy across nearly all of the screen area.
The monitor offers a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 2ms response time, while integrating a 2 megapixel webcam and microphone for video conferencing. Users can choose from HDMI, DVI, or VGA video inputs, while the touch signal is communicated via USB.
You can find the SX2210T listed on Dell currently for $469. It should also be noted that the Multi-Touch functionality is only supported with Windows 7 Premium or higher at this stage.
