"Borderless" TV Range
 
LG SL9000 Borderless TVLG has unveiled a new range of borderless TVs which they claim to be the first in the world. Whilst many will think the sets will be able to display images right to the edge of the screen, they are wrong, they don't do this. 'Borderless' is more about freedom, according to LG, because the range apparently gives owners the freedom to, say, transfer images over Bluetooth.
 
“You will live better because of the infinite freedoms that the LG borderless TV will give you,” LG said.
 
The sets have no physical border as such, although an injection compression moulding process followed by film laminating technology results in glass running right to each model's very edge. They will still not display right to the edge. The two models - SL8000 and SL9000, are both part of the range but have some major differences.
 
For example, the SL9000 feaures a 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio with a 100Hz refresh rate, whilst the SL8000 features a mere 150,000:1 contrast ratio, but a 200Hz refresh rate. Both are capable of displaying 1080p content though, as well as 24p real cinema image reproduction. The SL9000 is 29mm thick, whilst the SL8000 is 45mm, both featuring intergrated speakers that are "almost" invisible, according to LG.
 
LG have not yet released any information of pricing or availability, but I don't expect they will be cheap. It seems a bit strange that they market it as borderless, yet it still has some form of border. What do you think? Discuss in our Forums.

Everyone says the keyboard is to expensive but i spent more on my G15 that this, I admit I'd never pay the RRP for it but if you hunt around you find it for a pretty good deal, Its a lovely keyboard. It's a lot quieter than my G15 to lol, that was so loud to type on. It's worht the $$$, Even as just a upgrade from the G15 and there is always the young up coming geeks that would buy your G15 :lol:
I never have a issue when typing and getting the G keys mixed up only when pressing the Esc key some times :lol:.

There was a new update for the G19 released not to long ago and fixed the LCD bugs and issues I had with it, You can even put a webcam on the LCD now, Could be kinda creepy to lol.

My Pro's
•Full color LCD
•Keys can be any color you want.
•The programs and capabilities on the LCD and improved since the G15 finally.
•Its just the right amount of G keays. not to many like the early G keyboards but not to few like the late G15
•Media control, At first the scrolling volume wheel to me was a con but It took a whole of a day to grow on me and see why it is like that.
•The toggle switch for the illumination is only on off instead of 1/2 light then full then off like the G15, Again at first I thought of it as a con but after I thought about it my G15's lights were always on full or off never half lol so its a Pro.
•It works good as a keyboard to :P

My Cons
•The cable isn't long enough (So i use it in a USB HUB)
•The LED back lights are a bit dull some times more so with cretin colors.
•Would like to see more programs compatible with it, Not just games.
•The "performance monitor" could be a little more detailed.
•The back lit G19 branding is kinda unnecessary.
•The extra light that comes out the USB ports is a bit cheap, Would be cool if they were illuminated like as if they were meant to do that.

Great review mate :)

I'm still rockin the original V1 G15, must have had it for about 5 years and it's still going strong, and I've really put it through its paces while gaming lol. £120ish seems a bit excessive especially for a non-mechanical keyboard, having said that the screen is brilliant if you do a lot of hardcore gaming, the TS plugin always tells you who's talking which has helped me out when I've been playing in tournaments in the past :) and the build quality is second to none.

I'll prob treat myself to the Logitech G510 in next few months as it's more in my price range.

Enjoy your new board mate :)

The screen comes into its own with AIDA 64, at a glance GPU temps and voltage, CPU voltage and temps, uptime etc. Useful for benching/gaming to check the GPU isn't going over any temperature threshold.
