Philips' upcoming Fidelio NC1 may be a bit pricey at $300, but it's an excellent on-ear noise-canceling headphone.
The Danalock's many inconsistencies make it less convenient than using an actual key, and therefore, very tough to recommend.
Cree's bigger, brighter LED is a very solid value, but it's not without legitimate competition.
The Asus Transformer Book T100 revives the Netbook value proposition (and Netbook usability issues) in a budget-price 10-inch laptop that doubles as a tablet. You won’t love it, but for sheer bang for the buck, it’s hard to beat.
Cree's new $25 three-way LED bulb can simulate 30W, 60W, and 100W incandescents.
As home automation systems go, the Nexia Bridge offers a great mix of simplicity and functionality, but the monthly fee is a tough sell, especially for casual users.
