The Panasonic AS530 series LCD ain't no plasma, but it offers attractive design and decent image quality for a budget price.
The Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 comes close to being a great mainstream slim gaming laptop, but it's undone by an unimpressive display.
You could do a lot worse than the Gateway NV55S05u for a solid RAM-hard drive combination and an all-around decent processor in a 15-inch laptop, provided you can live with poor battery life.
Toshiba's L7200U LED TV comes loaded with features, but mediocre picture quality makes its high price tough to stomach.
Albeit one of the least expensive Internet-capable LED TVs available, the Toshiba SL417U lags behind most of its competitors in terms of performance.
A large-screen laptop with very good performance, the Gateway NV7802u is an attractive choice for home or office.
Albeit slightly less impressive than other LED-based LCDs with local dimming, the Toshiba SV670U also costs less and still gives great blacks.
It may not inspire, but for less than $600, the Gateway NV5807u is a great value as an all-around 15-inch laptop.
