• Vizio announces 30 HDTV models

    I’m going to save you the shenenigans and snark by just pasting what Vizio sent us. Essentially, they’ve got 32-inch plasmas for $689 and 50-inchers for $1,399 — 1080p, naturally — and a few new surround sound systems and LCDs. They have a new LCD line called Envy which is a little sexier than the standard line. We’ll hit the booth tomorrow to see what is really… Read More

  • Olevia's 120Hz HDTV makes me want to go to CES

    No bones about it. I’m not looking forward to CES. My schedule makes me want to vomit. I’m liable to snap at some PR rep from exhaustion or from them showing me the 100th iPod case that no one cares about. But if you show me something like a 1080p LCD then I may just perk up and take notice. Syntax-Brillian’s Olevia LCD line is getting a shake up at CES and will now be… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Acer 22-inch LCD monitor, $200 (shipped)

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Acer monitors? Best bang for the buck, in my humble opinion. Please note that I’m not saying Acer monitors are the best monitors ever invented in the history of personal computing. I’m saying that, for the price, they’re generally a very, very good value.

  • ITRI's flexible LCD screen bends like crazy

    The Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan rolled out a few interesting little screen technologies. The flexible LCD screen is only about 10mm thick and can be made up to 10.4-inches, but requires a backlight. Fortunately, they also have a flexible backlight that works with the LCDs.

  • Sharp sues Samsung over alleged LCD infringement

    I guess it’s kind of a normal thing right now for tech companies in the far east to sue each other regularly over technicalities in order to get a leg up competition-wise.

  • This is how you sell LCD TVs

    That little peanut is holding a big TV. Either she’s freakishly strong or the TV itself is unbelievably light. Any proud owner of a handful of LCD TVs and monitors would tell you that they’re often heavier than they look. These new Hitachi units look light and probably are light. They make up the UT series and will come in 32-inch (end of the year), 37-, and 42-inch (both… Read More

  • Circular LCDs on the way

    I’ve got a friend who’s obsessed with roundness. Spheres in 3D, and perfect circles in 2D. He’s all up in my grill about it being natures ideal shape, blah blah.

These aren’t really for computers, they’re for more bric a brac consumer products, but we… Read More
