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. Indeed, paying less for a display no longer means major compromises on quality or features, as it once did. These days, panels for under £150 are not …

Going strictly hands-off: Managing your data centre from afar

If your core servers – and hence your core applications – live in a data centre, then by definition they're not on your premises. In many cases they may be hundreds of miles away – in fact, in a previous life, my employer's most distant data centre was six time zones away in the US Midwest. This means that you don't have the …

We need to talk about SPEAKERS: Sorry, 'audiophiles', only IT will break the sound barrier

Feature Today’s loudspeakers are nowhere near as good as they could be, due in no small measure to the presence of "traditional" audiophile products. In the future, loudspeakers will increasingly communicate via digital wireless links and will contain digital processing. Indeed, the link between IT and loudspeakers is destined to grow …

Hands on with LG's 21:9 monitors

IFA 2012 With so many telly boxes out there, it seems likely an on-board tuner on the TV itself will become a thing of the past in the not too distant. Perhaps LG’s EA93 21:9 aspect monitor, announced at IFA, offers a clue to the shape of things to come. LG EA93 21:9 monitor A 29in monitor touting a 2560 x 1080-pixel resolution it …

Wacom Cintiq 24HD interactive pen display

Wacom Cintiq 24HD interactive pen display

Review So the Wacom Cintiq 24HD shows up at my door and it's huge. Seriously, this marriage of 24in display and graphics tablet tech needs two people to lift it out of the packaging and there are step-by-step instructions on just how to do it. This is definitely a professional piece of kit and, costing around £2000, I reckon unless you …

LG DM2350D 3D monitor and TV combo

LG DM2350D 23in passive 3D monitor and TV combo

Review The DM2350D is the first 3D combination monitor/TV released by LG.

LG DM2350D 3D monitor and TV …

Toshiba 14in USB LCD Mobile Monitor

Toshiba 14in USB LCD Mobile Monitor

Review It sounds like a great idea: a 14in LCD monitor that connects using USB. Perfect for tablets, netbooks and mobile phones, right? Well no, because it doesn’t work with them. That’s not to say Toshiba’s Monitor is entirely without merit. It’s a neat looking device, similar in size to a slim laptop and weighing the same as a …

Apple Thunderbolt Display 27in monitor

Review After Apple’s hoo-ha about the Thunderbolt port on its newest Macs and MacBook Pros, it’s great to finally have something to plug into it. But I began testing this monitor with tainted expectations: less ‘OK show me what you can do’ and more ‘oh lordy, yet another locked-in connectivity standard’. It ended with tainted love. …

LG debuts eye-tracking no-specs 3D screen

The kit comes from LG, and its called the D2000. It's a 20in panel and uses a parallax barrier to separate out left- and right-eye …

Samsung P2370HD TV-monitor

Review Combo TV-monitors are not a new idea, but all too often what you get is a standard PC monitor with a TV tuner bolted on. Yet with the P2370HD, Samsung has created a fully functional 23in widescreen TV, that’s designed to work just as well as a PC monitor. Samsung P2370HD Dual purpose: Samsung's P2370HD The monitor is …

Samsung SyncMaster 2263DX 22in monitor

But for most, screen size and price are the deciding factors. However, the Samsung 2263DX has something else that may pique some people's interest. This 22in monitor comes with a little …
