If thought your video of Uncle Andy barreling down the slopes and skiing face first into a pine tree was hilarious in 2D, do you think it would be even funnier in 3D? Acer's HR274H is supposed to be able to answer that question. It's a 27-inch 3D monitor "featuring new advances in 3D technology," one of which is an innovative chip solution that helps the display convert any 2D content to 3D, Acer says.
Maybe you've heard of Mimo Monitors, maybe you haven't. Either way, the company that's taking credit for "ushering USB touchscreen monitors into the U.S. market" has now conjured up the "Magic Touch," a USB-driven capacitive touchscreen mini-monitor the company claims is an industry first. The Mimo Magic Touch sports a 10-inch display and a single USB 2.0 port, or two USB 2.0 ports if you spring for the deluxe model.
There are precious few things we'd turn down if they're offered for free, like the flu, jail time, and handerpants. Cooler Master is offering none of those things, but the company is giving away LGA2011 brackets to owners of its Hyper 212 Evo and Hyper 212 Plus air coolers so you can upgrade to Sandy Bridge-E without factoring in the cost of a new cooling solution.
Case fans are in the running for the least appreciated PC component. They're not often glamorous or sexy, but without fans, your big and burly desktop system is little more than a vertical oven for your hot running PC parts. Even if fans don't get the attention they perhaps deserve, there's still some innovation going on by those who build them, like BitFenix, which just announced its new Spectre Pro Performance Fan Series.
Knigston today announced a new entry to its USB flash drive line, the DateTraveler HyperX 3.0. As you can easily guess from its name, this is a thumb drive built to take advantage of your system's SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports for fast data transfers, and towards that end, Kingston says its the company's fastest flash drive ever.
The newest edition to AOC's AireLED Series is a 23-inch monitor with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel and a price tag that won't necessarily scare off budget conscious shoppers. AOC's new Aire Pro i2353Ph hits retail at $199, and with 23 inches of screen real estate, this is one of the least expensive IPS monitors in the market with a large enough panel to not feel like you're sacrificing size for quality.
HP went and quietly updated its Wi-Fi Mobile Mouse with a more modern design, added a Facebook button, and has now let the new rodent out of its cage. The new X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse sports the same wireless setup as before and syncs up with your computer's built-in wireless receiver, so there are no wires or USB dongles to mess with.
One of the biggest arguments against 3D technology is the cost, especially as more and more 3D content becomes available, which used to be one of the other major concerns. You know no longer have to ask, 'What the heck would I use a 3D monitor for?,' and with the launch of Hewlett-Packard's new 23-inch 3D monitor (2311GT), you don't have to sweat the price tag, either.
It’s right around the first of the month. You know what that means: rent is due. But let’s say that you spilled Mountain Dew Code Red all over your keyboard in a frenzied Battlefield 3 match last night – and now it doesn’t work. Top-tier gaming keyboards aren’t cheap. How are you supposed to satisfy your desire for virtual blood and keep the lights on in your apartment? CompuExpert has your back. Yesterday, the company began offering the budget Raptor LK1 gaming keyboard on US shores for the low, low price of $35.
