Apple has been peddling the current external Thunderbolt display for a good long time now and many find the aging product to be lacking compared to other offerings on the market today. Word is that stock of the current external display is getting very low in most locations and there is no sign that stock will be replenished. Often when product stock gets low, it's a very good indication that Apple has a replacement planned.

Acer H277HU USB-C Monitor Review: Your MacBook’s best friend

Acer H277HU USB-C Monitor Review: Your MacBook’s best friend

USB-C is our salvation from cable madness, at least that's what they tell us, but as early adopters of Apple's MacBook or other cutting-edge hardware have realized, reality hasn't caught up to the promise. The theory, and indeed the core technology, is sound, but it's illustrative of the dearth of peripherals that the Acer H277HU display is causing as much interest as it is. Yes, you can plug it into your old-school PC, but this is really all about USB-C.

Samsung has a 5.5-inch 4K display for VR in the works

We're still just coming to grips with the long awaited commercialization of virtual reality technology and Samsung, unsurprisingly, is already trying to push the boundaries of technology and wallets. Although it will insist it's still in the prototyping stage, Samsung showed off at the Display Week conference in San Francisco a display designed for virtual reality and boasting of a 3840x2160 4K resolution. The screen's size is 5.5 inches, which is pretty much smartphone size. Almost ironically, Samsung might have found a use for the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium's 4K screen as well.

Samsung’s Mirror Displays get installed in Korean salon

Samsung’s Mirror Displays get installed in Korean salon

We've seen a lot of different styles and methods people have used to create mirrors, most of them in the bathroom, that also functioned as some sort of display. Almost all of them have one thing in common however. Or two, actually. They are all DIY projects, and almost none of them are commercially available. Samsung, however, might have just taken out the excitement behind those projects. It has recently unveiled what it bills as the first public and commercial installation of its Mirror Display solution that combines both mirror and monitor into one.

Acer VR headset made real: StarVR’s rebirth continues

This morning the folks at Starbreeze and Acer announced that they'd joined forces to bring their own virtual reality headset to the world. This headset goes by the name StarVR, and there is a chance that you've heard of it before. Starbreeze Studios revealed this headset in an early iteration at E3 2015 (this June), and now with Acer onboard, they'll have a joint venture ready to design, manufacture, promote, market, and sell the StarVR head-mounted-display (VR headset) "to the professional and location-based entertainment market."

Sony Xperia X Premium tipped to be first HDR display phone

Sony Xperia X Premium tipped to be first HDR display phone

Sony may have just redefined its Xperia brand to encompass more than just smartphones, but that doesn't mean its limiting its number of Xperia models. In fact, sources are claiming that the OEM is about to unleash a fourth "Xperia X" model. After the base Xperia X, the beefier Xperia X Performance, and the more budget-friendly Xperia XA comes the Xperia X Premium. If that name reminds you of the Xperia Z5 Premium, then you'd be correct. It takes after its "predecessor" not by having a 4K screen but by having the first HDR screen on a smartphone.

DisplayMate crowns 9.7-inch iPad Pro the best LCD display

DisplayMate crowns 9.7-inch iPad Pro the best LCD display

It is really no surprise that the newest and smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro would outperfrom the iPad Air 2 in the display department, since it does outrank it everywhere else except in price. It is, however, perhaps unexpected that this iPad Pro would also trump all other LCD displays, including the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro (except in one case). That is definitely the finding that DisplayMate reached with the iPad Pro, claiming unambiguously that it was by far the best performing LCD screen they have ever tested.
