LG LW6500 LED TV (preview)
LG's newest 3D TV from CES 2011 uses passive 3D glasses that don't need power
- Passive 3D means much cheaper 3D glasses and no flicker
- You've still got to wear glasses, picture resolution is reduced in 3D mode
LG's LW6500 LED TV is one of the more innovative TVs to be announced at CES 2011. It uses passive 3D -- just like a cinema screen -- which means glasses are a lot cheaper and crosstalk should be reduced. It also has all the Web features you'd expect from a high-end TV in 2011, like an application download service and movie streaming.
The LG LW6500 partially addresses one of the current major bugbears with 3D TV — the need to wear clunky, battery-powered 3D glasses. You still need to wear glasses with the LG LW6500, but they're the simple polarised type that you get when watching 3D movies at the cinema. This means glasses will be cheaper and lighter, but we're unsure of how it will affect picture quality.
If you're picking out a new television and want to work out what's best for you, read through our LCD vs LED vs plasma TV buying guide.
Have a look at what we thought were the best TVs of 2010.
Unlike active shutter glasses, which have a disposable or rechargeable internal battery, polarised or passive 3D glasses are just made from plastic. This means they can cost only a dollar or two — a huge advantage compared to active shutter models which generally cost around $100. The method used to produce a polarised 3D image on the screen of the LG LW6500 does halve the screen's display resolution, though, so you won't be getting the full 1080p when watching a 3D Blu-ray movie. LG's specs do note a '3D Light Boost' feature that we presume is intended to combat the brightness-sapping 3D glasses.
The 200Hz screen of the LG LW6500 uses edge-mounted LED lighting with local dimming for a big contrast boost. Content junkies are well served with DLNA support, DivX HD playback via USB and built-in Wi-Fi. LG's downloadable applications also make a welcome reappearance.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
