You've probably all seen George Takei trying to sell you the new Sharp Aquos with added yellow pixels, instead of the usual RGB array that all other TVs use.  ExtremeTech had a chance to see this $3000 52" LED TV in action as well as to check out a few of the extras the TV has, like the ability to stream certain online content through Aquos Net.  Viewing movies and TV in both SD and HD showed that this is a well crafted TV with a decent brightness and good picture quality.  When it came time to d

Picking up a two or three pack of monitors is not the cheapest upgrade to a system but for those who desire to experience EyeFinity or nVIDIA Surround it is certainly an attractive upgrade.  You can drop the price significantly if you abandon the idea of a 3D monitor and can go even further if you are willing to pick up a debranded monitor like the HP De-branded 25-inch HD Widescreen LCD which Think Computers recently reviewed.  That debranding knocks the price of this 1920×1080 LCD down to $220 if you shop around, which keeps the price of a three pack well below $1000.  As you

Usually when we discuss DisplayPort adaptors on PC Perspective it is to talk about active DisplayPort to DVI adaptors used to bring a half dozen screens to a Crossfire setup.  There is another use for this connection type however, as evidenced by the Accell UltraAV DisplayPort to DVI Multi-Monitor Adapter that ThinkComputers just reviewed

[H]ard|OCP was subjected to some terrible hardships recently as they were forced to play games on three screens in order to test the differences between EyeFinity and nVIDIA Surround.  If you can bear to see what happened to them during the testing of this feature with SLI and Crossfire setups then you can click through.  Thankfully there are not too many screenshots as the fps they manged are envy inducing enough, pages of triple screens showing Metro 2033 and others

3D displays are really trying to take a chunk of the market, with several display manufacturers, nVIDIA and many small players all rushing products into market.  The initial investment can be quite steep whichever route you take to be able to display your entertainment in 3D which is why we are seeing several all in one solutions of various types.  Merlin has recently released what seems to be a 3D picture frame, a 7" LCD with an 800x480 pixel display capable of displaying video and stills in 3D, as well as having a few other features familiar to MP3 players, like a calendar. &n
