[ATTACH=RIGHT]18413[/ATTACH]Are all [URL="http://www.hdmi.org/learningcenter/faq.aspx"]HDMI[/URL] cables created equal? Without lab equipment it is difficult to tell the difference between HDMI [or any cables] at short lengths [under 6 feet]. But signals traveling greater distances do degrade and that is a fact. The longer the wire, the greater the resistance and weaker the signal or current on the receiving end. Here is a round-up comparison of a handful of HDMI cables, designed to provide a 1080p picture at the end of a 50 foot run. This is not a very complex and technical review, just a simple test to show what can be …

Hey, i want to convert my hd mkv file so it is compatible on my ps3, and i was wondering if there are any free software that can do this as well as make a custom 'dvd menu' of some sort, to which i can add a background and music. The file is quite large, about 2.7gb, and weirdly, some software i have tried dont accept the file! For example one software claimed i haid an '&' in the file name, or some unusable character, so i changed the name to 's' and it still didn't work! Can anyone suggest …

VIZIO has long been the bargain shopper’s HDTV brand of choice. Peppered across shelves in Wal-Mart, Costco, and Target electronics department, the displays—albeit not the most advanced in terms of picture quality—have always been reliably, affordable, and completely viable options for people wanting to achieve the new American dream of owning a HDTV and Dolby Surround setup to come home to after another laborious 9-to-5. For a company that started with three employees and $600,000, VIZIO has gone on to become one of the leading LCD television manufacturers, just a fraction of a percent behind Samsung in 2010 sales. Their …

If you’re looking for a competitively priced portable Blu-ray alternative, look no further than Plextor’s recently shipped PX-B12OU. Available currently only in Europe for €92 including VAT, the 4x BD-ROM drive is an insanely affordable, fully USB operated external option for users still searching for their Blu-ray glass slipper. Not only can it play [I]The Dark Knight[/I] in stunning 1080p quality on your next flight, it also doubles as an 8x DVD+RW and a 24x CD+RW drive for all your basic computing needs.

Corporate marketers are paid to think five years ahead of the curve. Like hockey great Wayne Gretzky, who once said that he didn't skate to to where the puck is, but "where it would be", today's marketers have to know where the consumer marketplace is going, not where it is right now. Forrester Research is trying to help. I've talked with and interviewed Forrester analysist many times over the years. I believe that, of all the technology market resarch and industry analysis firms, Forrester is at the top of the list. So when the company delivers a major report on …

Hardware development is starting to throw up new technologies to us as the arrival of Windows Vista draws closer. The next ‘shake-up’ is in the area of integrated graphics. High definition media content is the spur, and current solutions simply don’t handle it. Only a small number of high end, expensive display cards claim to be capable of the technology. Nvidia has been developing an integrated chipset which has high definition clearly in its sights. The C51PV chipset was first demonstrated earlier this year, and will provide a graphics core similar to the 6200TC display cards. The difference is that …
