LG Display Art Slim

LG Display announces the ‘Art Slim’ UHD LCD panel, is 75% thinner and 25% lighter

We all want super slim products in our lives. From our ultra thin smartphones and tablets to our super thin TVs. It seems like just yesterday that huge boxes were sitting on equally large entertainment centers. Now we are mounting our flat screens to our walls, and in some cases, our ceilings. The thickness of the modern-day TV is getting even thinner with the announcement of a new LG Display UHD LCD panel, the Art Slim.

LG Screen Pixels

At What Point are More Pixels Too Many Pixels?

Everybody loves more pixels or at least the manufacturers want us to.  The war for larger more clear display in smartphones is on and has been for a long time.  Manufacturers keep upping the game with larger displays and larger resolutions.  For the larger screen devices, increased the resolution is a good thing as it ensures that our displays are sharp making everything easier to read. Look at the latest smartphone from LG, the LG G3.  It’s one of the first smartphones to feature a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution or what they are calling quad HD.   Sounds awesome doesn’t it, but at what point do the extra pixels become irrelevant and only degrade our overall experience?   Let’s look at the pros of a larger resolution display. The obvious pro to a larger resolution display is the clarity or sharpness of everything displayed on it.  Text should be cleaner ...
