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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

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!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
