NEC launches full-HD plasma TV

The company has introduced three new models to its plasma HDTV range, including a full-HD model which displays at a 1920x1080 resolution.

NEC Thursday launched its first full-HD plasma TV, the 50-inch PXT-50FHDP1.

The PXT operates at a 1920x1080 progressive scan resolution with a 100hz refresh rate, and boasts a 30,000:1 contrast ratio.

The RRP of this model is $3,499, and other sizes will be released in the coming months.

Also on Thursday, NEC launched two new models from its HD plasma range. The 42-inch PXT42XD3 and the 50-inch widescreen PXT50XD3.

While also featuring a 30,000:1 contrast ratio, these models only operate at 1024x768 and 1365x768 respectively.

But they are also a lot cheaper, with the PXT4 model retailing at $1,599, and the PXT5 model at $2,199.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
