LG has today announced the launch of its Laser Display, a short throw DLP display that projects 100in of full HD video onto a specially designed screen.

Unveiled globally in January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Laser Display is technically classified as a display rather than a TV. It is targeted at consumers looking to create a "home cinema experience".

The device consists of a laser DLP device that projects a 100in image to a screen that sits just 56cm from the box. In Australia, the product will be bundled with LG's HR938T, a 1TB twin-tuner recorder and 3D Blu-ray player.

LG Australia's general marketing manager, Lambro Skropidis, said there is a "huge demand" for extra-large displays.

"We are pleased to bring to market another innovation that will broaden our product offering and give our customers an extra-large screen viewing experience; an experience we know there is huge demand for.

"This is a great choice for people who want to create a special home cinema experience at a more accessible price."

Unlike a traditional home theatre projector, which uses mercury-based lamps, the LG Laser Display uses 36 laser diodes. The company says these diodes have a lifespan of 25,000 hours before needing to be replaced, which is equivalent to five hours a day of use for 13 years.

The Laser Display produces just 22db of sound when in operation and the 100in screen claims to have an anti-contrast and anti-glare finish. However, it does not have 3D capabilities.

The LG Laser Display includes a DLP box, a 100in screen, and a twin-tuner recorder & 3D Blu-ray player.The LG Laser Display includes a DLP box, a 100in screen, and a twin-tuner recorder & 3D Blu-ray player.

The LG Laser Display will be available in Australia from mid-July and will be sold exclusively through Harvey Norman. The device will retail for $8999 and includes free installation.

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.
