The Room Two (iOS)

This week, reviewers from CNET UK took on the Sony PlayStation Vita Slim. You'd never guess from the way they talk about it, but they gave it four stars and you can click through to find out why. Meanwhile, the American judge -- sorry, CNET's US-based reviewers -- gave enthusiastic Editors' Choice Awards to the five-door 2014 Mazda3 and The Room Two, a puzzle game for iOS. Those numbers are the highlights of a nicely competitive week. Check out the high scorers!

The Room Two

Polished graphics and sound design along with excellent puzzle-solving gameplay make The Room Two well worth the price. Read the review.

Sony PlayStation Vita Slim

Sony PlayStation Vita Slim

In the face of stiff competition from smartphone and tablet gaming, we were hoping for something more audacious from Sony's Vita revamp. The Sony PlayStation Vita Slim is still a powerful, portable games machine, however -- just watch out for those pricey, proprietary memory cards. Owners of the original shouldn't worry about upgrading, but if there are Vita-specific titles you've been hankering to play for a while now, this is a good time to get involved. Read the review.

Dell XPS 13

Dell XPS 135

Early versions of the Dell XPS 135 had promise, but lacked must-have features. Over time, the system has gained a high-res display, then a touch screen, making the new 2014 version an ultrabook that has nearly everything you'd want. Read the review.

Dell Venue 11 Pro

Dell Venue 11 Pro

Betting on a full 1080p display partly justifies the Dell Venue 11 Pro being higher-priced than other Atom-powered tablets. But the keyboard dock add-on, which should turn this into a functional laptop alternative, is too expensive and occasionally frustrating to use. Read the review.

JLab Epic

The JLab Epic earbuds may look a little cheap, but they offer a comfortable, secure fit, and sound richer than their design would indicate. Read the review.
