G-Form Extreme Sleeve 13-inch laptop case

Here's our weekly roundup of the new products CNET reviewers liked best.

G-Form Extreme Sleeve 13-inch laptop case

Editors' rating: 4 out of 5

The good: The compact design of the G-Form Extreme Sleeve provides serious extra protection for your 13-inch laptop without taking up too much extra room.

The bad: While padded with high-tech materials, this is still a soft case, and may not be too effective against sharp objects or corner drops.

The bottom line: Trusting the life of your laptop to a rubberized sleeve is a serious commitment, but the high-tech materials behind the Extreme Sleeve will at least make your MacBook checked-luggage-friendly.

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550

Editors' rating: 4 out of 5

The good: The standard air suspension in the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550 delivers a very comfortable ride, and the Harman Kardon audio system reproduces music with excellent fidelity. Adaptive cruise control, blind-spot detection, and lane departure systems all work very well.

The bad: The engine creates uneven acceleration in certain power bands.

The bottom line: Mercedes-Benz bolsters its reputation for luxury with the 2012 CLS550. A powerful and efficient engine propels this sleek ride, and there are a number of advanced driver-assistance features.

Sonos Play:3

Sonos Play:3

Editors' rating: 4 out of 5

The good: You can control the Sonos Play:3 single-speaker streaming-audio system from any iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or Android smartphone using a free app. It offers good sound, its compact, elegant design cuts down on cord clutter, and it can stream Internet-based radio and audio services, plus your own digital music collection, from any Mac, PC, or NAS drive. Also, it's simple to set up, particularly if you already own a Sonos system, and linked Sonos players (purchased separately) can cover up to 31 additional rooms.

The bad: The Play:3 has almost no stereo separation and doesn't offer the detail and clarity of the step-up Play:5. Also, while it can wirelessly interact with other Sonos products, you'll need a hard-wired connection or the $49 wireless Sonos Bridge accessory if it's your only Sonos component.

The bottom line: While it doesn't sound quite as good as the larger Play:5, the Sonos Play:3 delivers a superior streaming-audio experience that you can control from any iOS device or Android smartphone.

Acer Revo 100 RL100-U1002

Acer Revo 100 RL100-U1002 desktop PC

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The Acer Revo 100 RL100-U1002 boasts a living-room-ready design, a unique touch-pad input device, and capable media features, including a Blu-ray drive, for a fair price.

The bad: This Nettop is not meant for gaming or general productivity due to a low-power CPU, and we'd feel better about its value if it had a 1TB hard drive.

The bottom line: Not everyone wants a living-room computer, but the Acer Revo 100 is one of the better low-cost HTPCs we've seen thanks to a wisely chosen feature set, its attractive design, and a mostly well-conceived input device.

Canon ImageClass MF3010

Canon ImageClass MF3010 multifunction printer

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The Canon ImageClass MF3010 is a competent imaging device with quick output, simple controls, and a wallet-friendly price tag for budget-minded students and small offices.

The bad: The printer lacks common features like wireless networking and an auto-document feeder.

The bottom line: Though it's lacking Wi-Fi and an auto-document feeder, the Canon ImageClass MF3010 laser printer's strong performance and versatile features has appeal for students and home offices on a budget.

HTC Wildfire S (T-Mobile)

HTC Wildfire S (T-Mobile)

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The HTC Wildfire S offers a decent set of features for a wallet-friendly price. The Android Gingerbread device has good build quality and call quality.

The bad: The smartphone's compact size won't suit everyone. The smaller display makes it a bit hard on the eyes when viewing Web sites and video, and the camera's picture quality could be better.

The bottom line: Its small size won't please everyone, but the HTC Wildfire S is a decent, entry-level Android smartphone for a very affordable price.

Olympus XZ-1

Olympus XZ-1

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The Olympus XZ-1 is nicely designed with a solid user interface and very good performance for its cohort.

The bad: The XZ-1's image quality is good, but even shooting raw it's not quite up to the level of its better competitors.

The bottom line: Enjoyable to shoot and relatively fast, the Olympus XZ-1 only stumbles when it comes to photo quality, which is very good, but not uniformly excellent as one would expect from this class of camera.

Promise Pegasus R6 (12TB)

Promise Pegasus R6 external hard drive (12TB)

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The Thunderbolt-enabled Promise Pegasus R6 offers superb throughput speed and a large amount of storage, and supports multiple RAID configurations. You can also daisy-chain the drive with up to five other Thunderbolt devices without decreasing the throughput.

The bad: The Promise Pegasus R6 only works with Thunderbolt-equipped Macs for now, it's expensive and relatively noisy, and it doesn't include the necessary Thunderbolt cable or any other peripheral connections.

The bottom line: If you have a Thunderbolt-enabled computer, the Promise Pegasus R6's storage capacity, its features, and especially its performance are worth the hefty investment for those who demand fast external storage.

Samsung Nexus S (AT&T)

Samsung Nexus S (AT&T)

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The Samsung Nexus S offers a brilliant display, decent call quality, and enough features to keep you busy. The Gingerbread OS offers usability improvements, and the stock Android is a welcome change for AT&T.

The bad: The Samsung Nexus S feels rather fragile, and it lacks a memory card slot and LED notifications. AT&T added no new features, and data speeds were slow.

The bottom line: The Samsung Nexus S brings Gingerbread OS a much-needed stock Android to AT&T. But eight months after its original debut, the handset feels underpowered and behind the smartphone curve.

Samsung W200 Rugged Camcorder

Samsung W200 Rugged Camcorder

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The Samsung HMX-W200 produces very good video, has solid sharing and editing software, and has a couple of handy features including a pause button.

The bad: Some of the W200's shooting options and durability features aren't very useful.

The bottom line: The Samsung HMX-W200 might be a little less impressive than its specs, but it's still a very good rugged minicamcorder for the money.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
