CES 2014 Day 2 Wrap-Up: 4K is Here!

Ah yes, 2014 has dawned on us and we are in the beginning of a new year. A year of new ideas, new dreams, new years’ resolutions. However, for the Technology industry, it is time to show off the new gadgets and innovative technology that will be coming in the near future. There are so many things to see and do it’s nearly impossible to talk to everyone in one week. This year has definitely brought new products to the table and built upon previous products. The topic of today is the new 4K Televisions. The term 4K is used to describe the amount of pixels running horizontally across the display. In this case 4K is 4,000 pixels (3840×2160).

Last year LG had a huge display that included a wall of OLED Flexible Televisions. This year they have displayed the same wall, but with one change; 4K OLED 3D Televisions with bright and vibrant color visualizer and some 3D Ocean video to show the capabilities of the TVs. Now, that was a just the biggest display of 4K. The big name companies had 4K and even some had 8K televisions on display in a range of sizes.

Now, why is 4K better? It is better in the same way that HD is better than standard definition. The added pixels makes the picture must more vibrant, clear, smooth, and easier to look at. The 4K technology is better for passive 3D. What is passive 3D? Passive 3D splits the light from the display into two channels while harvesting the resolution in half to create the 3D image. However in HD the picture can become quite fuzzy and hard to watch. In 4K even after the resolution is split in half the picture is still nice and clear. The content that will be available in 4K is already being worked on and is being tested. Content like YouTube and Netflix will be streaming in 4K.

Speaking of streaming. Qualcomm had a great display of 4K content. First they had a 4K TV connected to a tablet that was streaming 4K content from the WiFi in Central Hall which had countless devices on it; the picture was still clear and smooth. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 802 a TV-specific quad-core chip enables mobile devices to stream 4K content to their 4K TV.

Also being teased at the show by Qualcomm was 4K TVs’ with 4G LTE capability to stream 4K content. Now, this is something that was done clearly to make a point of how fast 4G LTE is, but the issue is that it would consume so much bandwidth that it makes it impractical. Maybe this technology will be available in the next 2 years, but at the moment 4G LTE has not covered the country for the most part. Once it becomes as normal as 3G is now, that is likely when this product could be produced to the public.

While 4K and 8K are the future of TV, they are still going to cost you some money. Prices will come down eventually like they did with HD. However, these 4K and 8K TVs’ are much bigger in size can produce a much brighter and more vibrant picture than HD can. As for now, you will pay a premium price for premium product.

Should I buy a used iPad 3? Buyer Beware!

When purchasing a used iPad, you want to make sure you buy it from a reseller with a strict and thorough certification process. 365 Laptop Repair whose certification process includes a comprehensive 12 point inspection of each iPad by experienced technicians at their facility.

The anticipated release of the iPad 4 in November of 2012 brought crowds of people flocking to re-commerce sites and buyback programs to sell their iPad 3’s. After the release of the iPad 4, those that purchased one and still owned an iPad 3 realized that one iPad is enough for one person, and they too sold their former iPad to the re-commerce market.

800px-IPad_3_Store_Lines

The cheapest option being the Wi-Fi model 16 GB for $499. Therefore, at the time, you could spend roughly $500 for the most basic iPad 4 or you could buy the best iPad 3 (the Wifi + Cellular Model 64 GB listed at $829) for up to hundreds less. For referance you can get a used iPad 3 32 GB from our eBay store for $368.95.

Since then, we have seen a similar trend occur with the release of the iPad Air in November of 2013. If you were going to buy an iPad Air, you would likely want to sell your used iPad 4, and if you still owned an iPad 3, then you would surely want to sell it while the market interest remained strong. Then, just as one would have assumed, the arrival of the iPad Air, along with the millions of iPad 4’s being poured into the re-commerce market, brought the price of a used iPad 3 down to a cost so low in comparison to the iPad 4 that many people are now starting to consider purchasing a refurbished device.

One of the main points to realize when trying to determine whether you should buy a used iPad 3, is just how similar an iPad 3 truly is when you compare it to an iPad 4. In examining what each device has to offer, we see that while an iPad 4 has a 1.4 GHz dual-core Apple Swift processing unit, the iPad 3 has a 1 GHz dual core ARM Cortex A-9 processor. Both perform similarly, the main difference being the added .4 GHz in processing speed with the iPad 4.

600px-Apple_A5X_Chip

A difference in processing speed that small is hardly noticeable, and consumers can certainly save a few hundred dollars by sacrificing a bit of processing power. For GPU, both devices offer a Quad-core PowerVR. The SGX543MP4 model is found in the iPad 3, while the iPad 4 possesses the SGX554MP4 model; again, very similar in performance and functionality. Both devices have exactly the same RAM (1024 MB LPDDR2 RAM). They have the same display (2048×1536 pixels at 264 ppi (Retina Display), and the same camera (1080p HD still and video camera 5 MP, 30fps and 5× digital zoom). The iPad 3 and 4 use the very same battery too.

482px-IPad_3

Both devices are remarkably alike, and the price of $368.95 for a used iPad 3 16GB MD369LL/A WiFi+4G 3rd Gen WHITE AT&T is the most reasonable for people looking to save money. The iPad 3 has been discontinued since October 23, 2012 and the iPad Pro rumors have started circulating. Buy a used iPad 3 from laptop 365 while they’re still available.

All features including wifi, wireless connectivity, digitizer, batteries, cameras, and connection ports are checked and tested for full functionality. iPads are then restored to factory settings so they can be customized to your liking when purchased.
