LG has upped the ante for the high-end LED television market, releasing a 55in LED backlit television. The LG LH95 boasts a contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1, which is far greater than models from competing brands.

The LG LH95 reaches its incredible contrast ratio through the use of LED backlighting. It uses a sheet of LEDs at the rear of the screen's LCD panel, rather than the edge-lighting of most models from Samsung and Sony. A matrix of 3360 LEDs is divided into 200 segments with individual controls, allowing specific sections of the screen to be dimmed or brightened depending on the source material. Local dimming allows the screen to display bright white and dark black areas simultaneously, boosting visible contrast.

The LH95 also features LG's 200Hz technology to smooth out motion — backlight scanning and intelligent frame insertion allows 50Hz content to be displayed smoothly. A wireless 1080p transmission system like the ones used by the Sony Bravia KDL40ZX1 and the Panasonic TH-P54Z1A allows the screen to be wall-mounted easily. Devices like game consoles and Blu-ray players can be connected discreetly to the wireless receiver. Because of this, the LG LH95 is less than an inch thick across the entire chassis.

The LG LH95 LED television is available for $6499.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
