AOC 27-inch Quad HD Ultra Slim Frameless IPS Monitor

When it comes to computer monitors, there are many different kinds of models from which one is able to choose from. However, some monitors will obviously cost more than the others — for the simple fact that they come with better hardware specifications. AOC is one such company that has long been a leader in monitor display technology, and they recently announced the brand new 27-inch Quad HD Ultra Slim Frameless IPS Monitor, also known by its model number Q2781PQ.

The AOC Q2781PQ will arrive with an extremely slim form factor while featuring an asymmetric stand. It delivers QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) alongside a 50,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and a new 4-sided “frameless” AH-IPS panel. In other words, this is as modern a design as you can possibly get, where the futuristic AH-IPS panel will pave the way for wide viewing angles of 178°. This allows one to enjoy brilliant colors and Clear Vision, which is the image performance engine which can upscale Standard Definition (SD) sources to High Definition (HD) so that one can enjoy sharper, more vivid viewing.

Not only that, this display will also boast of Full sRGB color in order to deliver the best color uniformity regardless of the perspective. The presence of Flicker-FREE technology will enable this frameless monitor to meet the needs of style conscious home users as well as professionals. With an asking price of $499 attached to the AOC Q2781PQ, it is certainly one of the higher end monitors to look out for if you would like to start the year with a bang. Alternatively, there will also be the AOC Q2781PS that will carry similar features with that of the Q2781PQ, except that this one has more bling attached to it — it has a Rose Gold base and edge accompanied by a luxury back panel that is adorned with crystals from Swarovski. Needless to say, such luxury will set you back by another Benjamin.

This Etekcity Bluetooth Receiver Audio Adapter makes old equipment feel like new

bluetooth-receiver-audio-adapter

Technology is growing at an ever-increasing rate. While this is awesome and means that there will be a lot of advances in medicine, clean energy, and farming, it also means that it’s hard to keep up with all the toys, gizmos and gadgets. Crazy as it may seem, not everyone wants to throw away all of their electronics every year and buy the newest thing on the market.

If you fall under that category and are still enjoying your old speakers that don’t connect via Bluetooth, but sometimes wish that they did, the Etekcity Bluetooth Receiver will make what is old feel like almost brand new. This gives you up to 10 hours of 4.0 Bluetooth streaming on a full charge with a range of 33 feet. You’ll be able to use this for your home theater system, car stereo, or just your normal speakers for your TV or computer.

This easily adapts through A/V, RCA, and a 3.5mm jack. It was made to be portable so it can make any speaker system you come across Bluetooth compatible. The charge time to get it to full is around 2 hours, but thankfully you can use it while it’s plugged in. Obviously though, that will increase the charging time. You’ll be looking at paying out around $19 for this little device, but that is vastly better than paying for a brand new speaker system for all of your various devices.
