Parasound Halo JC3 Phono Preamp & Atlantic Technology AT-1

We spent some time auditioning Parasound/Atlantic Technology's high-end stereo channel setup at the Venetian during CES 2010. We didn’t go there just for the sake of John Curl's newest Halo-series JC3 Phono Preamp, with its heavy, triple-shielded 2-U chassis, but to check out Atlantic Technology's AT-1 high performance speakers with their potentially revolutionary H-PAS bass technology.

Mobinnova Beam smartbook hands-on

NVIDIA's Tegra 2 isn't just to be found in HD-capable mediaplayers; it's also going to spearhead the company's push into the smartbook segment.  The Mobinnova Beam was perhaps the most eye-catching smartbook around back when the platform was announced in June 2009, and we stopped by NVIDIA's stand to try out the latest version.  Check out our hands-on video after the cut.

After exclusively telling us yesterday that a Full HD 3D unibody consumer projector is "coming next" in their line-up, JVC asked if we wanted to try out the 3D experience they currently have on offer at CES 2010.  Screenings are being shown in a specially-constructed dark theater room which seats around 40-50 people, and the hardware on offer included a JVC D-ILA HD990, a single JVC DLA-RS4000 4K as well as a pair of RS4000 4k for the 3D footage.  Check out our impressions after the cut.

Panasonic 152-inch 4K2K Plasma HDTV

Consider knocking down a non-load-bearing wall (though maybe remortgage your house first): Panasonic have brought an "ultra-large" 152-inch plasma HDTV to CES 2010.  The display isn't just special because of its whopping 4K x 2K resolution but because it'll also show Full HD 3D as long as you're wearing the proper glasses.  We stopped by Panasonic's booth to check the monster out.

LG GT540 Android phone hands-on

LG's second Android smartphone, the LG GT540, crept out at CES 2010 with less bang, more whimper, which is a shame since we've been waiting on the touchscreen handset since its existence first leaked back in November 2009.  With scant details buried in a Korean-language press release, we stopped by the LG booth to find out more.

LG CF3D 3D projector arrives May for $10k

LG's 2010 LCD range wasn't the only place 3D cropped up from the company.  SlashGear stopped by to take a look at their new 3D projector, the LG CF3D, which can produce a 3D image from a single projector rather than requiring separate left and right images.  What's really interesting is the price: unlike previous systems, LG's have a consumer focus and will be priced at around $10,000.

HP Z400 Workstation Review

HP Z400 Workstation Review

Earlier this year we covered the launch of HP's latest Intel Nehalem-based workstations, and soon enough HP had a Z400 test unit for us to try out. The entry-point to the new range, the Z400 misses out on some of the more innovative design features of its bigger siblings, but arguably the most important thing - the Xeon processor - is there front and center.

AOC 2230Fh 22-inch LCD Display Review

AOC are well known for their reasonably priced monitors, and with the 2230Fh they threw eye-catching design into the ring too.  A 22-inch widescreen LCD display, running at 1680 x 1050, the 2230Fh pairs a low $299 MRSP with a surprising array of connectivity.  Is it a true bargain though, or just a load of marketing boasts?  Read on for the full SlashGear review.
