LG 55EC9300
September 16, 2014
Last year, I reviewed the LG 55EA9800, a 55-inch curved OLEDHDTV. To my utter shock, it managed to produce perfectly dark black, a holy grail of HDTV testing and the only way a screen can have the "infinite contrast ratio" (technically inaccurate, but we'll talk about that later) some manufacturers have claimed in the past. I've been waiting for another OLED HDTV to test to see if this was some mysterious fluke or if the technology really can consistently perform that way. LG has now released the 55EC9300, a redesigned, WebOS-based follow-up model. Well, OLED is now two for two, and the 55EC9300 offers one of the best pictures I've ever tested in the lab. That image quality will cost you $6,999.99, though, so while OLED is now confirmed to be the future of HDTVs, it still isn't feasible for most consumers today.

Toshiba Satellite Click 2 Pro P35W-B3226
September 15, 2014
There are plenty of systems in the market today that combine tablet and laptop, ranging from inexpensive devices to premium systems that pair a decent Windows tablet with an ultrabook-class laptop. The Toshiba Satellite Click 2 Pro P35W-B3226 ($1,184.99 as tested) is an example of the latter, with premium construction, high-end components, and a respectable feature set. Unfortunately, making a great hybrid system requires more than simply sticking together a tablet and keyboard; that joining of two halves is the very fault line that leaves the otherwise impressive Click 2 Pro feeling less impressive than systems with lower performance and fewer features. Design This detachable-hybrid tablet is similar in some respects to the Pentium-equipped Toshiba Satellite Click 2 L35W-B3204, with an accompanying docking keyboard, a similar tapered-edge design, and brushed aluminum on the back of the tablet and the keyboard's palm rest. The biggest differences between the Click 2 Pro and its budget-friendly sibling are the introduction of a push-to-click docking hinge and a slimmer, lighter design. We never reviewed its predecessor, the AMD-equipped Toshiba Satellite Click W35Dt-AST2N01, but the Click 2 Pro is way beyond it in terms of either price or capabilities.

Casio Slim XJ-A147
September 11, 2014
The Casio Slim XJ-A147 ($1,109.99) is one of the latest projectors to sport the company's hybrid LED/laser light source. It boasts some solidfeatures, such as a generous 2x zoom and Wi-Fi, with an included adapter. Like other models in the company's Slim line, the XJ-A147 is a lightweight model with a lamp that should keep shining when other projectors with more mortal light engines have run through two or three bulbs. True to its name, the Slim is just that, measuring 1.7 by 11.7 by 8.2 inches (HWD) and weighing 5.1 pounds. It comes with a soft carrying case, complete with a pocket for cables. The projector sports a futuristic look, with rounded edges and lens set far to oneside. There are no manual lens sliders or wheels; you can change focus or zoom, either with the remote or from touch controls on the projector itself.
