2014 Infiniti Q50S Hybrid

This week, CNET editors reviewed a little bit of everything and found some great stuff -- there's something here to please just about everyone, with the possible exception of the perpetually displeased. I mean, we've got a fitness tracker, a DVR, a couple of games, and a hybrid car that earned our Editors' Choice Award. Read on, true believers!

Despite a few minor quibbles, the 2014 Infiniti Q50S Hybrid steps up the tech for good fuel economy, handling, driver-assistance features, and cabin infotainment in a premium sport sedan.

Acer Iconia W4-820-2466

The 8-inch Acer Iconia W4 has a few advantages that help it stand out from a crowd of similar devices, including great battery life and enough ports to support basic productivity. It's also much better -- and less expensive -- than last year's W3 model, so it earns bonus points for that.

Sony's HT-XT1 sound stand is packed with features, looks sleek, and sounds great, making it a no-brainer upgrade over your TV's built-in speakers.

Withings Pulse O2

A new wristband and new firmware improve the Withings Pulse and make it a true fitness band, but it's not a big leap forward over last year.

Trials Frontier

With tons of tracks, unlockable bikes, and several quests, Trials Frontier is a great download for 2D racing fans, but beware the freemium limitations.

Channel Master DVR+

Even if it is a little rough around the edges, the Channel Master DVR+ delivers on the cord-cutter promise of an over-the-air DVR+ without subscription fees.

Olympus OM-D E-M10

Though it doesn't deliver the best photo quality, the sum of the Olympus OM-D E-M10's design, performance and features add up to a nice upgrade from a point-and-shoot.
