Canon Vixia HF S100

Editors' rating: 4

The good: Excellent video quality and performance; nicely designed interface; fast battery charging.

The bad: No eye-level viewfinder; expensive; lens cover rattles when closed.

The bottom line: An excellent flash-based prosumer HD camcorder, you may nevertheless pass on the Canon Vixia HF S100 because it lacks an eye-level viewfinder. It's probably a better buy than the identical--but more expensive, because it has 32GB built-in memory--Vixia HF S10.

LG Xenon - black (AT&T)

LG Xenon - black (AT&T)

Editors' rating: 4

The good: The LG Xenon has an attractive touch-screen display, a great QWERTY keyboard, customizable standby screens, plenty of shortcuts, and lots of features like 3G speeds, quad-band support, a 2.0-megapixel camera, GPS, and more.

The bad: The LG Xenon suffers from the lack of POP or IMAP e-mail support, the touch screen suffers from a slight learning curve, the Web browser feels a little clunky, and you're limited to only six widgets to customize the home screen.

The bottom line: Despite a few problems, the LG Xenon is one of the better messaging phones we've seen, plus it has a cool touch-screen interface and plenty of features.

Blue Microphones Mikey

Blue Microphones Mikey

Editors' rating: 3.5

The good: The Mikey iPod microphone captures unrivaled stereo sound for the price and uses an attractive, hinged design.

The bad: The Mikey doesn't offer line-input, direct monitoring, or passthrough USB, and the gain switch is difficult to manipulate.

The bottom line: For capturing pristine, realistic stereo audio to your iPod, the Blue Microphones Mikey offers the best bang for the buck.

Dell Adamo

Dell Adamo

Editors' rating: 3.5

The good: Sleek, thin design breaks new ground for Dell; good performance for a low-power laptop.

The bad: Very expensive; lacks an SD card slot; feels a bit heavier than it looks.

The bottom line: Dell's upscale Adamo is a 13-inch laptop for those who value design and finish as much as performance, but its luxury price will limit the potential audience.

HP Pavilion Dv2

HP Pavilion Dv2

Editors' rating: 3.5

The good: First laptop to use new AMD Athlon Neo CPU; best-looking budget 12-inch laptop we've seen; 4GB of RAM.

The bad: Netbook-style performance at mainstream-laptop prices; no internal optical drive; unimpressive battery life.

The bottom line: HP's slick-looking 12-inch Pavilion dv2 carves out a niche between entry-level Netbooks and expensive ultraportables.

2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe AWD

2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe AWD

Editors' rating: 3.5

The good: The 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe AWD delivers power in a strong and predictable manner. The all-wheel-drive system allows for a little fun before stepping in. Hard drive-based navigation is lightning fast and offers space for music storage.

The bad: Slow shifting automatic transmission steals some of the fun. Also, scrubbing through long lists of digital media can be grueling.

The bottom line: Equally appealing to geeks and gearheads, G37 Coupe combines an athletic presence, a high level of performance, and a complete cabin tech package into a vehicle that's attractive from almost every angle.

The good: Easy to set up and use; excellent Web-based interface; compact and sleek design.

The bad: Lacks advanced NAS features; hard drive is not user serviceable; can't read NTFS external hard drive.

Samsung Propel Pro (AT&T)

Samsung Propel Pro (AT&T)

Editors' rating: 3.5

The good: The Samsung Propel Pro offers a full QWERTY keyboard with a number of e-mail solutions. The Windows Mobile smartphone also has 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Call quality was good, and we were impressed with the picture quality of the camera.

The bad: The smartphone is bulky compared with other messaging phones, and the keyboard is slightly cramped. Samsung uses a proprietary jack for headphones and AC adapters.

The bottom line: The Samsung Propel Pro is a capable Windows Mobile device, but its bulky design makes it less appealing than AT&T's other messaging smartphones.

Samsung TwoStep SCH-r470 - orange (U.S. Cellular)

Samsung TwoStep SCH-r470 - orange (U.S. Cellular)

Editors' rating: 3.5

The good: The Samsung TwoStep offers a functional midrange feature set, intuitive music controls, and a 3.5mm headset jack. Photo quality is excellent, and music quality is satisfactory.

The bad: The Samsung TwoStep toggle is rather cramped and call quality wasn't the best. You can't save music tracks as ringtones.

The bottom line: Even though its call quality could be improved, we'd still recommend the Samsung TwoStep as a good beginner music phone for U.S. Cellular.
