HP CES 2015 Displays and Workstations...


So here we are...it's that time of year again. The world of Consumer Electronics is in Las Vegas this week. What's the big news...well there's always something new. I think for many they are hoping for something they've never seen before...others are just looking for a new refresh because they are ready to buy the latest and greatest. Whatever you are after I think you'll find that HP has something innovative to offer with each big announcement.

This year HP has launched a variety of new products with many new Displays, including Virtual Reality, some super cool thin & light Mobiles and Virtual Workstations.

First off they have brought out some new 4K and 5K monitors. This is certainly welcome since other leading companies and some not so well known companies have brought out 4K displays over a year ago. So why is this really much of an announcement. Well I think sometimes it's best to be first in the market and other times it's better to wait. Why would it be better to wait. Well in this case higher resolution screens have been here for some time but how good are they. Do they have all the latest updated connections and so on. Early adopters get the latest tech no doubt...but sometimes tech is moving so fast that I feel companies just want to say they have a 4K monitor to have one. Maybe they just rushed it out. So I'm feeling like 2015 is the year 4K actually gets adopted. I think the quality is here...and better the price after waiting a couple of years for prices to come down for some-there really isn't much reason to wait. If you have a 4K camera or even a smart phone that shoots 4K you can start shooting and getting into 4K now. So what I'm saying is...many of you have the ability to shoot 4K. When you had no way to watch it(stream it), or shoot it, or cost effective way to view it...well then why would you be interested in a 4K or 5K and beyond monitor. Let's just say it...if you went to the local big box store and they had a 1080p monitor and a 4K monitor sitting right next to each other and the price was like a couple hundred dollars more for a 4K screen...which one are you going to buy. Ok maybe it's not quite that close but from last year to this year...it could be. So if your in the market for a new display you might just be buying a 4K screen because frankly it's not that far outta reach-prices are not terribly high anymore for UHD and beyond screens...compared to what we have been offered in the past. This year they will actually be a much better value than years past. So if I was buying new today...I don't think I'd hesitate to go 4K..!

So that being said. Take a close look at all the new innovations that HP has to offer. Having a name like HP behind a product is surely a plus. Not related but I just had to deal with an all in one HP printer. Well after a lot of issues with the driver not installing properly...I decided to give HP a call. The tech also ran into the same issue-but he went into the port configuration and within about 10 minutes manually got my printer connected on our network. I've used this method before and it's always worked for me.  I just didn't know that a 990c printer was the same driver for an 8600. So what I can tell you is from my experience...not all monitors, computers, or whatever electronic out of the box will work the same even if they are the exact same spec-meaning...if you run into a simple challenge like a driver failing...is the company going to help get you online. I've had a number of experiences with HP running basically all HP in my Edit Suite. They have always been there ready and willing to get me back online as fast as possible. It never pays to get a great deal(or steal of a deal)then there's an issue...and the company leaves you with zero follow up help and your wishing you payed just a little bit more and got something that just works...and when you have an issue it's just taken care of even at 1:30am. That's service whether it's a $200 printer or a $20k Workstation I've received quality support...That Rocks..! :)

Ok now for some specs to get you up to speed on the latest from HP at CES..!
