The big-screen Sony R520/R550 series offers the best value you'll see from the company this year.
This year's models deliver minor tweaks over last year's.
The Panasonic AS530 series LCD ain't no plasma, but it offers attractive design and decent image quality for a budget price.
While the open-back design isn't good for noisy environments, the Grado SR80e headphones sound exceptionally good for $100 and are also comfortable to wear.
The Vizio M1d-A2R series offers a potent combination of excellent design, decent picture quality, and a pocket-friendly price.
This aluminum-topped portable speaker can be mounted on a wall and delivers decent sound for its $50 price tag -- though it's lacking in bass.
If you can stand its speakers, Sony's XBR-X900B will reward you with the best combination of audio and video quality you've ever seen (or heard).
As long as you don't need fast autofocus or great burst shooting, the Sony Alpha ILCE-7R is great, compact alternative to entry-level full-frame cameras from Nikon and Canon.
The Sony KDL-W800B series is a classy television with excellent color and shadow detail, but in pure bang-for-buck terms, its black level can be bettered for much less.
Excellent picture quality, well thought-out features and distinctive design make the Vizio M-Series seem like a much more expensive TV than it really is.
