My current workstation set up has a 13-inch MacBook Pro perched on a stand adjacent to a curved 24-inch display I pic ned up on sale as it was the display stock at a local store. But when LG offered me the chance to review its 38-inch 38WK95C-W monitor I jumped at the opportunity- once I checked that I had enough space on my desk for it. Here's what I thought.

HD TVs have come a long way since the days of the first flatscreens, but here's a little secret for you: this year's new, fancy, top line TVs aren't really going to improve much on last year's new, fancy top line TVs. If you're in the market for a new display, you're better off looking for older, discounted models.
The LG G7 ThinQ was first teased and then finally revealed in early May this year and it continues LG's yearly update of their mid-to-high range G series Android smartphones. Oh, and yeah, it has a notch. Now we know when Australians can get their hands on it, how much it will cost and what's hiding beneath that notch-carrying, 6.1-inch, Super Bright Display. Besides the troubling caps-no-caps name (ThinQ, really?), it's looking the goods.
We've got everything you need to know about the LG G7 right here.
Mobile World Congress is the big show when it comes to all things mobile. Whether that's laptops, smartphones, tablets or retro gadgets, this is where everyone that isn't Apple unveils their latest and greatest products. This year has been no exception, with Nokia, Huawei, and others all showing off the mobile hardware we'll be coveting for the next year.
Here are the five new products that have us intrigued and grabbed our attention.
In sunny Australia, household rooftop solar can be a great way to generate some of your own power, and potentially save money off your electrical bill. Thanks to recent technology improvements and price reductions, home battery storage makes it possible to store the sun’s energy and use it again at night. But as more and more players enter the market, which option is right for you?
Back in 2010 Sony Australia's Paul Colley forecasted that a large percentage of Australian viewers would have 3D televisions by 2014. In the same year, industry pundits such as Simon Murray predicted that sales of 3D TVs were set to increase in the years to come.
But others were heralding the death of 3D TVs and this year the remaining major manufacturers, LG and Sony, have said they will no longer produce 3D-capable televisions. So despite all the repeated push and positive predictions, what went wrong with 3D TV?
CES is kicking off with its traditional showing of really fancy TVs. Combining all the good top-end stuff we're already used to like Dolby Vision HDR with new 'nano cell' tech that reportedly improves colour quality and viewing angles, LG's three newest Super UHD panels are the most advanced the company has produced -- and promise the best ever picture quality from a LCD.
Today's 4K TVs come in a wide range of prices; from less than $500 to over ten grand. But how much difference does this make to the picture quality? In a bid to find out, we pitted Aldi's ultra-cheap 65-inch 4K TV against one of the most expensive 4K models on the market. We also asked "normal" people if they could tell the difference. Here are the results.
If you want the ultimate in desktop screen space, you have two options: Get a bigger monitor, or get a 4K monitor. Both options offer you more space to spread out and work, and more pixels to cram your windows into, but two are the focus of many monitor-buyers today: Ultrawide and 4K. Let's see how they stack up, practically.
At first glance, the LG X Power looks like pretty much every other budget Android phone on the market. However, a glance at the specifications reveals its secret power -- a massive 4100mah battery that reportedly lasts nearly twice as long as high-end phones from the likes of Samsung and Apple. Here are the specs and where to get it.
The iPhone 7 officially launched in Australia today, with prices starting at $1079 (or $1229 for the black versions). If you're a die-hard Apple fan, you'll doubtlessly think it's the best iPhone ever -- despite having no headphone jack and a dearth of exciting new software. For everyone else, you might want to consider one of these flagship Android phones instead.
LG, Samsung and HTC have released their new flagship smartphones for the first half of 2016. They're all pretty great -- but which one is best? That largely depends on what you look for in a smartphone. We compare the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, HTC 10 and LG G5 to help indecisive Android fans make the right decision.
The LG G5 is the latest flagship smartphone to hit the market -- and for once, it offers something intriguingly different. Boasting a modular design with a host of snap-on peripherals (sold separately), the G5 is quite unlike any phone from rival manufacturers. It's coming to Australia in early May. Here are the pricing details, release date and specs.
It's been a long wait, but LG's latest addition to the Nexus fold has finally arrived. The Nexus 5X is a 5.2-inch Android smartphone that retains the lean operating system and zippy performance of Google's other first-party devices. For Android fanatics who crave speed and instant software updates, it's a logical -- and affordable -- phone upgrade.
