Logitech Keyboard Case for iPad 2

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

Logitech Keyboard Case for iPad 2

Editors' rating: 4 out of 5

The good: Lightweight design, a well-constructed, compact keyboard, and its function as a travel case make the Logitech Keyboard Case for iPad 2 easy to pack.

The bad: The keys are inevitably more cramped than on a full-size keyboard, and the case offers no protection for the iPad 2's back and can't be easily put on and taken off when commuting.

The bottom line: The Logitech Keyboard Case for the iPad 2 does exactly what it promises, offering a highly portable Bluetooth keyboard for use with an iPad; however, it's a better keyboard than it is a case.

Samsung UN55D8000

Samsung UN55D8000

Editors' rating: 4 out of 5

The good: The Samsung UND8000 series has a unique, visually stunning design that minimizes the frame around the screen for a nearly all-picture look. It produces deep black levels with accurate color, along with excellent video processing and improved 3D picture quality. The Smart Hub Internet portal boasts more apps and streaming services than the competition, along with a functional Web browser, and is easier to use thanks to the included dual-sided Bluetooth keyboard with a screen and QWERTY keyboard. Samsung includes two pairs of 3D glasses.

The bad:The UND8000 series is extremely expensive and exhibits poor screen uniformity with excessive brightness variation and banding. Details in shadows were obscured somewhat, and the glossy screen reflects a lot of ambient light. Smart Hub lacks Amazon Instant, its search is next to useless, and its interface can be cluttered and confusing.

The bottom line: The Samsung UND8000 TV delivers best-in-class looks and features, but its picture quality--thanks to uneven screen uniformity--is ultimately not as good as that of many less expensive models.

Blu Speed - black (unlocked)

Blu Speed - black (unlocked)

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The Blu Speed has a decent QWERTY keyboard and features that include a dual SIM card slot for two different numbers, a front-facing VGA camera for video calls, Skype Mobile, the Opera Mini browser, Wi-Fi, FM radio, and even an e-book reader.

The bad: The Blu Speed has a rather cheap flimsy construction, the optical mouse takes some getting used to, and call quality was a little muddy at times.

The bottom line: Despite its bland and cheap appearance, the Speed has an impressive array of features that belie its affordable price.

MoGo Talk XD Bluetooth Headset and Protective Case for iPhone 4 (Black)

MoGo Talk XD Bluetooth Headset and Protective Case for iPhone 4 (Black)

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The MoGo Talk XD is a solid protective iPhone case with a built-in Bluetooth headset. The headset has a comfortable fit and comes with a variety of earbud tips.

The bad: The MoGo Talk XD lacks a few advanced Bluetooth headset features like A2DP and multipoint. You have to use the phone to adjust the volume. Call quality was also not as good as we hoped.

The bottom line: The idea behind the MoGo Talk XD is clever, but we don't think the features fully justify its retail price.

Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator Headphones (Black)

Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator Headphones (Black)

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The stylish Roc Nation Aviator headphones reach beyond Skullcandy's tween demographic and bring a sophisticated look and detailed sound design to the mobile market.

The bad: The Aviators are light on bass and may not satisfy those expecting thumping sound.

The bottom line: The style-savvy Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator headphones earn our recommendation for balancing a unique thematic design with exceptional clarity in spite of a slightly passive low-end response.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 (Black)

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 (Black)

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 has a compact, lightweight design and good features and photo quality for the money.

The bad: The DSC-H70's 16-megapixel photo resolution doesn't improve photo quality from its 14-megapixel predecessor, and its shooting performance is slow.

The bottom line: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H70 is a very good basic compact megazoom, if not the best value.

Sprint MiFi 4082 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot

Sprint MiFi 4082 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The Sprint MiFi 4082 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot is good looking, compact, easy to use, and features wireless N. The device comes with an affordable unlimited 4G data plan, includes GPS and network storage functionality, and has decent battery life.

The bad: The Sprint MiFi 4082 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot sporadically doesn't work well with certain Wi-Fi mobile devices and can support only five wireless clients at the most. The device runs hot at times and its 4G connection is comparatively slow.

The bottom line: For mobile users who travel within good Sprint 4G coverage areas--especially those traveling with laptops-- the Sprint MiFi 4082 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot makes a good companion.

T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot ZTE MF61

T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot ZTE MF61

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: The T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot ZTE MF61 mobile router is good-looking and compact, and offers a fast cellular Internet connection and long battery life. The device can send and receive text messages and comes with multiple and relatively affordable data plans that include T-Mobile's Wi-Fi hot-spot service.

The bad: The T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot operates at significantly reduced Internet speeds when the data allowance is reached, doesn't feature Wireless-N, and takes a long time to apply changes. It supports a maximum of five wireless clients.

The bottom line: For mobile users who want a fast and flexible mobile Internet access solution and who have moderate data usage needs, the T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot ZTE MF61 will make a good investment.

Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X

Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X

Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5

The good: An excellent package of Blu-ray, Nvidia graphics, a fast processor, and great speakers help the M645-S4118X rise above the pack.

The bad: The thick plastic chassis and a bad battery life could ruin the equation for some.

The bottom line: The Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X has a killer combination of Blu-ray, high-end graphics, and a fast processor at a price slightly north of $1,000, but poor battery life is the Achilles' heel on what would otherwise be an ideal 14-inch laptop.
