Some first impressions of the company's new compact, least expensive interchangeable-lens camera.
The Boston Acoustics iDS3 is a bit low on features but high on performance and sound quality.
With only a handful of 11-inch laptops still available, serious travelers are flocking to ultrathin 13-inch models instead. But the low price and good battery life of the Sony Vaio E keep it from being counted out.
A lot of people will like the Sony Alpha NEX-C3 for its excellent photo quality and a now more usable design, but it can get unexpectedly heavy with the zoom E-mount lenses and it's still a bit more expensive than many point-and-shoot upgraders will like.
The Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones' impressive combination of design, sound quality, and features put it near the top of the class for portable headphones in its price range.
The Kingston SSDNow KC100 Upgrade Bundle Kit makes a great buy for first-time SSD upgrader.
The Silicon Power Armor A80 makes an excellent portable drive for travelers and home offices alike.
While the Olympus PEN E-P3 shoots out in front of its class for performance and holds its own on features and design, it's a bit expensive and you'll need to tweak its JPEG settings to get the most out of its images.
For companies that buy 3Com equipment, this 802.11b card's proprietary features could be worth the price. Others should look elsewhere.
As long as you don't want much in the way of manual features, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 is a very nice camera that can handle a variety of shooting situations.
