LG’s 200HZ LH50 LCD television announced

Backlight scanning and frame insertion technology refreshes the image 200 times a second

LG Electronics has announced the launch of its LH50 LCD television, which uses a 200Hz refresh rate for high quality motion handling.

The LG LH50 uses a Super-IPS (in-line plane switching) panel and has a native Full HD 1080p resolution. LG has dubbed its motion smoothing technology TruMotion 200Hz. Operating differently to the 200Hz frame interpolation of the Sony BRAVIA KDL40Z4500, LG’s system uses a combination of frame insertion and backlight scanning to create new inserted frames, as well as black frames with the backlight disabled. The insertion of these frames allegedly reduces motion blur and improves sharpness and contrast levels.

The LG LH50 TVs are available in sizes from 32in to 55in, with the most expensive LG 55LH50YD 55in model having an RRP of $4799. The cheapest is the 32in 32LH50YD at $1799, but this is only a 100Hz model. The smallest 200Hz LH50 television is the LG 37LH50YD, priced at $2199. All models apart from the LG 55LH50YD are available now, with the range-topping screen in stores by the end of June.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
