HTC One X

HTC One X

The futuristically styled $199.99 HTC One X offers Android fans on AT&T plenty to like, such as a massive, bright 4.7-inch screen, blazing 4G LTE data speeds, a powerful camera, and zippy performance running Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4. Read the review.

Panasonic TC-P50UT50

The Panasonic TC-P50UT50 plasma TV nearly matches the world-beating picture quality of the ST50 series, at an even lower price. Read the review.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

While it's not a no-brainer upgrade over the Mark II, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is worth the price premium if better performance and configurability matter to you. Read the review.

Jawbone Big Jambox

Jawbone Big Jambox

The Jawbone Big Jambox doesn't quite measure up to the Bose SoundLink Wireless Mobile, and it carries a premium price tag, but it's an impressively designed product that offers strong performance and speakerphone capabilities. Read the review.

Haier SBEV40-Slim

Haier SBEV40-Slim

The ulstraslim Haier SBEV40-Slim sounds surprisingly good for its size and features two HDMI inputs, making it one of the best budget sound bar options. Read the review.

2013 Lexus GS 350

2013 Lexus GS 350

The 2013 Lexus GS 350 makes for a convincing high-tech cruiser. With the F Sport package, it has some real performance chops, although it falls short of a BMW M or Mercedes-Benz AMG. Read the review.

Toshiba Qosmio F755

Toshiba Qosmio F755

The glasses-free 15-inch 3D display on the Toshiba Qosmio F755 falls just short of being really impressive. The software support and stability are better than for previous models, but low-end hardware needlessly hobbles this laptop. Read the review.

2012 Mercedes-Benz ML550 4Matic

2012 Mercedes-Benz ML550 4Matic

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML550 4Matic isn't perfect, but it does offer a good blend of tech, performance, and luxury. However, its diesel-powered sibling is probably the better bargain. Read the review.

Samsung HMX-W300

Samsung HMX-W300
