Pure Imagination Perfect Drink
REVIEW

Pure Imagination Perfect Drink

Perfect Drink is a fun novelty splurge for your home bar, but it isn't a mixology must-have by any stretch.

Oco HD Wi-Fi Camera
REVIEW

Oco HD Wi-Fi Camera

The Oco HD Wi-Fi Camera is an OK midpriced security camera that manages to differentiate itself from the identical form factor of the ArcSoft Simplicam by way of its adaptable video stream and lower cloud subscription fees.

Anova Precision Cooker (Red)
REVIEW

Anova Precision Cooker ( Red)

We loved the original Anova, and this one cooks just as well for less cash. Underwhelming smarts aside, it's a great sous vide starting point.

Osram Lightify LED Starter Kit
REVIEW

Osram Lightify LED Starter Kit

These aren't the cheapest smart bulbs you can buy, but Osram's Lightify LED Starter Kit is more affordable than Philips or Belkin's, and arguably more feature-rich, too. As a legitimate competitor, it deserves consideration.

Scout Home Security System
REVIEW

Scout Home Security System

Scout gives you choices, but its four-product line-up is actually pretty limited in comparison to Samsung's security- and home-automation-minded SmartThings.

Poly-Control Danalock
REVIEW

Poly-Control Danalock

The Danalock's many inconsistencies make it less convenient than using an actual key, and therefore, very tough to recommend.

Advanced Lumonics Orbnext
REVIEW

Advanced Lumonics Orbnext

At $129, Orbnext isn't an easy to splurge to justify, but makers, automation geeks and IFTTT aficionados might enjoy the niche appeal.

Philips Hue Lux
REVIEW

Philips Hue Lux

These bulbs make the appealing world of Philips Hue lighting more accessible than ever before. At $30 each, they're definitely worth considering.

Philips Hue Tap
REVIEW

Philips Hue Tap

We wish it cost a little less, but if you've already got Philips Hue LEDs in your home, then adding the Tap to your setup makes a lot of sense.

REVIEW

Philips SlimStyle LED bulb ( 10.5 watt, Soft White)

For such a flat bulb, the SlimStyle is surprisingly well-rounded, making for a decent value at its price point.
