Samsung T27A950 Monitor / TV Hands-on [Video]

Also simply known as the TA950, this Samsung full HD and 3D capable monitor can and will act as your do-it-all monitor and small-room TV, for real. We got the chance to take a look at this lovely piece of equipment at Pepcom this past week during their 2011 Holiday Spectacular - a lovely event with delicious amounts of similar opportunities from all ends of the tech spectrum. What we've got here is a 27-inch BLU LED ultra clear panel with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels - let me stop you right there and let you know that this is big, it's bright, it's fantastic, and you're going to get your eyes ripped out of their sockets by the clarity. Let's just put that out there and see what happens.

Samsung Central Station working with Series 7 Slate Hands-on [Video]

There is a tablet out there right now, ladies and gentlemen, that has many faces, the most recent of which was the Windows 8 developer version of the new Microsoft platform. We've seen this tablet back at IFA 2011, then we saw it again when we got the opportunity to check out the Windows 8 version of it just this week at Microsoft BUILD developers conference. Now what we're getting to see at the Pepcom Holiday Spectacular 2011 in NYC is this slate, once again using Windows 7, working flawlessly with the Samsung Central Station, a wireless display hub made to allow you the ability to mirror any device on its lovely large 27-inch screen

LG whips out new DM50D personal 3D TV with passive 3D glasses

LG whips out new DM50D personal 3D TV with passive 3D glasses

LG has unveiled a new 3D TV and monitor that is sized to fit into just about any room and on your desk. The monitor is called the DM50D and it has many of the same features of the higher end Cinema 3D TVs from LG. The screen promises to be flicker free and have a bright picture. Perhaps most importantly it uses what appear to be passive 3D glasses rather than the expensive active style. The official press release on the display is one of the worst in recent memory and offers virtually no detail on the screen.

The latest accessory from XFX is a big monitor stand that will hold three screens and is perfect for the gamer wanting to get AMD Eyefinity gaming action loaded up.

Our Gigantic Aire LED Black Monitor Contest WINNER!

Our Gigantic Aire LED Black Monitor Contest WINNER!

I have a story to tell you about this monitor. It involves the end of the world, what that ended up being, and how we forged the wilderness for you to have this monitor, oh you winner. It all happened about a week ago when the tides were coming in, our hair was feeling crunchy, and it was time to wake up from a 30 minute binge sleep (the longest any of us are allowed to keep our eyes closed, of course.) We woke up, and there it was, a big hole in the wall where the monitor should be - avast! Said we, pirates on the loose! Therefor we had to take action. This is not a choose your own adventure but it DOES have one happy ending - continue on, crime stoppers!

Samsung TA950 and TA750 asymmetrical 3D TV eyes-on

Samsung's gorgeous asymmetrical SyncMaster TA950 - and its slightly less striking TA750 sibling - is no stranger to these pages, but with retail availability now locked in we caught up with the 3D monitor/TV hybrids in person. They're no less attractive despite the months between now and their January debut, the TA950 floating neatly on a curving stand while the TA750 juts forward on its more traditional circular foot.
