The LG G Watch is $50 Off at Best Buy

Best Buy is cutting the price of the their LG G Watch by almost 50USD in the lead-up to LG's announcement of the G Watch R nearly to come.
The main difference between the current smartwatch and the G Watch R is that the latter is round, much like the Moto 360. Both the white and black versions of the G Watch have seen price drops at Best Buy, bringing their price down to $179.
These are new watches in their retail packaging, not refurbished or used units. You can also get free shipping, though you'll almost certainly have to pay sales for whatever state you to ship to.
The G Watch has only been on the market for a short period of time, and the price drop shows just how much the market is expected to prefer round smartwatches over square ones. Both devices should function in essentially the same way, yet the G Watch R is expected to look superior. To know more about the product please visit their site at this link.

Creative Unveils the Sound Blaster E5 USB DAC and Headphone Amplifier

Creative Technology Ltd today launched the Sound Blaster E5 - Flagship of the "Sound Blaster E-Series", and a new audio solution for USB DAC and headphone amplifier. Boasting audiophile-grade specifications and components, the Sound Blaster E5 is designed to deliver bit-perfect audio, allowing mobile users to experience audio as the artists intended.
The new flagship product is an extension of Sound Blaster's E-Series line of compact portable USB audio solutions. Launched in May 2014, the Sound Blaster E-Series includes the Sound Blaster E1 and Sound Blaster E3.
Retailing at an amazing price of USD199.99, the Sound Blaster E5 will be showcased and available for pre-order at COMEX 2014 from 28 - 31 August 2014 at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, Hall 601, Booth 6141 and 6801.
"We have always believed that everyone and anyone should have access to great audio quality and be able to share it, while supporting audio source from various devices - including iOS and Android devices, PC, and Mac. While the video experience of many users today have greatly advanced from HD to 4K resolution, the audio experience on the other hand is still sub-optimum - if 4K TV is four times clearer than Full HD, CD-quality audio, which many listen to today, is at least six times poorer than what 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution audio can offer.
This is why we have introduced a top-notch audio solution featuring only the best audio components to provide the "4K TV" experience of audio," says Low Long Chye, General Manager for Sound Blaster Audio at Creative. "Listen to your favorite tracks with a good pair of headphones through the Sound Blaster E5 and you will be able to pick out finer details and greater depth of music - as if you were listening to the artist or orchestra performing live." he added.
The Creative Sound Blaster E5, priced at USD199.99, will be available from October 2014 at the online store at sg.store.creative.com.

Dell Releases UltraSharp U3415W Curved Ultra-Wide Monitor

Dell released its UltraSharp U3415W, a 34-inch curved ultra-wide monitor, which the company claims will provide an ergonomic multi-display workspace with just two displays; to rival those with three full-HD ones.
The displays are equipped with blue-light reduction technology, to reduce eye-strain. The U3415W offers an aspect ratio of 21:9 (cinematic), with a native resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels, refresh rate of 60 Hz, and 8 ms response time (GTG).
Display inputs include HDMI 2.0 (sufficient bandwidth to run the panel at its native specs), mini-DisplayPort 1.2, and MHL. The monitor takes both analog inputs, and digital audio pass-through from its HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.2 connections, to drive its inbuilt 9W stereo speakers.
The UltraSharp U3415W from Dell will begin selling some time in November, 2014.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y50-70 (59424712) Laptop: Specs, Features and Overview

The Lenovo Y50 is one of the most interesting products in the 2014 portfolio of the Chinese hardware giant. The device is explicitly advertised as a gaming notebook, even though its design (15.6-inch, 4 kilograms, 24 millimeters height) and equipment (Intel Core i7-4710HQ, Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M, SSD) would allow it to be part of the high-performance multimedia segment. 
Lenovo IdeaPad Y50-70 we went through a configuration for the US market, equipped with a Full HD display as offered in many shops in Germany. Our conclusion: great package, but disappointing display with low brightness and contrast, not to mention the poor color accuracy and the limited viewing angles. Looking at the aggressive entry level price of only 899 Euros, ~$1181 (i5-4200M, 860M), we immediately find the explanation for that extremely bad panel. 
Starting from 1399 Euros, ~$1838 (1199 Euros, ~$1575, without operating system), the UHD display we are focusing on with a resolution of 3840x2160 pixels is used. The large price difference to the entry-level configuration is explained by the Intel i7-4710HQ quad-core CPU and a 512 GB SSD. In the following review we are dealing with the differences to the already tested version. Further information on the identically constructed chassis can be retrieved from the existing test of the Lenovo Y50-70 with FHD display.
