Wide Load: Philips Cinema 21:9

March 26, 2009

While browsing the booths at CEDIA 2007 a friend and I were blown away at the number of 2.35:1 front projection set-ups on display; it was actually harder to find a 16:9 demo than a “scope” screen. I told my friend, this is all well and good but if we ever see a scope flat-panel then we’ll know this is moving beyond the front projection/hobbyist market.

Mini Review: Samsung LNT4065F 40″ 1080p LCD

June 7, 2008

The video really pushed the boundaries of what I would have assumed possible just a few short years ago, I honestly was beginning to wonder if detail like this was possible from consumer based displays, it clearly (no pun intended) is.

Proton to Re-enter the North American Display Market

September 13, 2006

Back in my retail days throughout the early to mid nineties, we carried several premium CRT display lines that may or may not ring any bells, as all three moved onto core interests or got out of the display market altogether. We carried everything from the awesome little NAD CRT monitors, to Sharp’s Optima (not […]

1080p From Westinghouse

August 2, 2006

Last weekend while at a client’s house I noticed his son playing some fight night 3 but it wasn’t the game that caught my attention. Normally I wouldn’t have given this much thought and would have walked on by but the LCD he has using looked really nice, so of course being the inquisitive fellow […]

Plasma TV sales up 87%, Plasma detractor’s carry on undaunted

June 8, 2006

You know for a technology that’s been described as “on its last leg” “on the way out” and “soon to be overtaken by LCD”, plasma displays sure are selling like hotcakes. Even with all of the ridiculously exaggerated ‘burn-in’ horror stories and laughable “gas leak” rumors, spread by plasma conspiracy theorists, manufacturers managed to ship […]

The following is Steven’s original email followed by my recommendations. “My “media room” is 10.6’x 20.5’, and the seating will be 10′ or more from the […]

720p bargains

May 23, 2006

It’s almost impossible to escape the 1080p buzz lately. Whether it’s from manufacturers, the media, or those lucky enough to already own one, it seems almost everyone knows the ultimate in HD is 1080p. From Sony’s VPL-VW100 and Qualia 004 front projectors to Samsung’s “HL” 1080p series and even onto Toshiba’s recently announced

Samsung’s SlimFit 30” HDTV

June 27, 2005

Back in November of last year I wrote about a new line of HD CRT televisions from Samsung, which in my opinion really fill a long overlooked niche in the home theater market. Sure LCD’s and Plasma’s look fantastic hung on walls or sitting on top of shallow stands, but not every application calls for […]

Mainstream 52″ LCD’s close, 100″ LCD panels on the horizon

May 25, 2005

LCD televisions have had one major shortcoming thus-far, size. But if Sang-Wan Lee (President and CEO of Samsung Electronics LCD division) get his wish, the venerable 42” plasma may soon be replaced by a 46” LCD. Gazing his eye even farther into the future Mr. Lee sees 100” LCD panels entering the commercial market within […]

Samsung HL-R6768W, 67” DLP

May 18, 2005

As “big screens” go you’d be hard pressed to get much bigger than the Samsung HL-R6768W, without taking out a second mortgage. Proudly sitting atop the Samsung throne as
