Wangling my way into the 4K gaming club with a water-cooled whopper

Feature The other week a Viewsonic VX2475Smhl-4K monitor, boasting a 3840x2160 resolution running at 60Hz – though only 24-inches of it – shows up at my door. I’m happy as a clam until it dawns on me that this isn’t a job my faithful little NUC, the Gigabyte Brix Pro, is up to. I was going to need a rig and a half, probably costing more …

Eyes on the prize: Ten 23-24-inch monitors for under £150

Product roundup Computer displays have never been better value for money, from the all-singing, all-dancing models with every bell and whistle you can think of, to the less extravagant monitors.

Ten affordable mid-sized Full HD monitors

Product Round-up Monitors don’t age very well; growing, as they do, dimmer and yellower as time passes. Premium panel technologies are now also considerably cheaper than they once were, so if you haven’t updated your display in a while, the chances are it’s now more than a little bit rubbish. I’ve taken a look at ten of the best affordable …

ViewSonic Pro 9000 laser hybrid LED projector review

Following the extinction of gloriously bulky CRT video projectors, big screen aficionados have had a clear choice between LCD and DLP. Both technologies are capable of great results, yet have distinct weaknesses: single chip DLP projectors often suffer from rainbow fringing, created by the use of a spinning colour wheel, while …

ViewSonic VSD220 22in Android mega tablet

Depending on how you might want to look at it, the ViewSonic VSD220 is either an expensive 22in monitor or an inexpensive tethered Android tablet. But then you'd be missing the point: it's actually both and neither. It's an unusual mashup for which ViewSonic deserves credit simply by giving it a go. ViewSonic VSD220 Android …

Viewsonic buries fondleslabs for punters, flogs biz tabs instead

A new plot at the consumer tablet graveyard has been dug for Viewsonic after it confirmed it is laying its fondleslabs to rest.

Viewsonic Viewpad 10e tablet

Review ‘Budget tablet’ is a phrase that tends to crop up in reviews that only ever reach one conclusion: the product is pretty awful. But the new Viewsonic Viewpad 10e may be the exception that proves the rule, because this £200 Argos-exclusive ain’t half bad.

Viewsonic risks Apple backlash with Android Phone 4S

MWC 2012 Reg Hardware Mobile Week Viewsonic focused on those with multiple mobile accounts this week, making an appearance at Mobiel World Congress (MWC) 2012 to reveal a collection of dual-Sim smartphones. One model bears a very similar moniker to Apple's popular handset, the 4S, so it's very possible that the Cupertino lawyers …

ViewSonic ViewPad 10e 10in Android tablet

ViewSonic intros tablet sized to strike at iPad

ViewSonic is taking aim right at the iPad - and would-be HP TouchPad owners - with a tablet sporting a 9.7in, 4:3 ratio IPS LCD screen. And, yes, like those fondleslabs this one, the ViewPad 10e, has a 1024 x 768 resolution - the best, we think, for folk who regularly switch from portrait to landscape and back again. …

Ten... budget Android tablets

Product Round-up Tablets, eh? A nice idea but a shame about the price. From the iPad to the Xoom, the PlayBook to the TouchPad prices starting at or near £400 are a little on the steep side for many folk. Well, the TouchPad maybe an exception these days but only very recently. You’ll pay a premium to buy into fondleslabs from Apple, HP or RIM, …

ViewSonic tempts with buy-to-try tablet deal

ViewSonic is to let punters try out its 7in Android tablet for free. Well, sort of. There's a catch: you have to buy a ViewPad 7 first, and you only have 30 days to make up your mind. You can't apply for a refund for the first 20 days after purchase. ViewSonic has form, having tried this sort of offer before. Viewsonic …
