Samsung 55in OLED TV
CES is dominated by TVs: if nothing else, every booth has one, and the big names in the business have dozens, racked high. This year, OLED technology made a big return to the show, with sets from Samsung and LG, both 55-inchers – a long way from the tiny, 15in screens we saw a few years back. LG's telly has a negligible 4mm bezel, but it was Samsung's offering that most impressed us, thanks to the buckets of tech built in: IPTV, voice and motion control, 3D. Can't deny, though, both produce gorgeous pictures.

Sony Crystal LED TV
Samsung and LG may have picked OLED tech for their next-gen, post-LCD tellies, but Sony's latest thinking takes a more inorganic line. Enter the "Crystal LED Display", a 1080p set packed with more than six million "ultrafine" LEDs, three each of red, green and blue hue to create each of the panel's 2m-odd pixels. Visitors' eyeballs confirmed the picture it produces is stunning, but the big challenge for Sony is matching the price of its rivals' OLED offerings.

Is this a trick question...?
High end audio company Behringer?
Oh come on! Behringer is not high end. They make low cost, let's say "equivalents" of other people's designs. Good value for money, but not high end.
Anyone but Sony.
FTR, the Sony boycott isn't over yet.
To sum up
So the best from CES - the world's biggest gadget show - was a bunch of computers and tellies. With a (admittedly veeeeery cool) RC helicopter and toy guitar to mix it up a bit.
That Behringer iAxe makes me SO mad.
There's a perfectly good bit of technology already available that allows people to learn the guitar and it's called a guitar. You can buy for £99 with an amplifier from that well known auction site! It has touch and feel and the required tactile feedback from the strings. Play the iAxe and all you're learning to do is play the iAxe not a guitar. I'm off to placate my Les Paul and my Strat now ... they're moaning in pain!
