Just Mobile Lazy Couch

A portable laptop stand boiled down to its most basic, the $18 Just Mobile Lazy Couch has a design flair missing from other laptop risers. Read the review.

Acer Timeline U M5-481TG 6814

Acer Timeline U M5-481TG 6814

Yes, it's heavier than the average ultrabook, but if you're looking for an excellent value in a full-featured thin laptop, the $780 Acer Timeline U M5-481TG 6814 is hard to beat. Read the review.

2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550 Convertible

2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550 Convertible

The $100K (yikes!) 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550 Convertible is an excellent luxury convertible that doesn't rely heavily on tech gimmickry; however, its new Comand Online system falls short of the bar set by Audi and BMW. Read the review.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

The business-oriented $1,500 Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon has a few quirks, but is otherwise a very impressive business-oriented ultrabook with strong crossover potential. Read the review.

Plextor M5 Pro solid-state drive

Plextor M5 Pro solid-state drive

Fast and compatible with all systems, the Plextor M5 Pro solid-state drive would be a great solid-state drive for anyone who can afford it. Read the review.

Cowon Auto Capsule AC1

Cowon Auto Capsule AC1

The Cowon Auto Capsule AC1 dashboard camera is so simple that it requires almost no interaction from the driver, but its $200 MSRP is a bit high for its feature set. Read the review.

Tech21 Impact Snap for Galaxy S3

The $40 Tech21 Impact Snap for Galaxy S3 case is a cheap and effective way to safeguard your Galaxy S3 from daily abuse. Read the review.

Dell XPS 15

Dell XPS 15

You can get similar components to our $1,300 Core i7 Dell XPS 15 configuration for less, but the rock-solid design makes this feel like a premium machine. Read the review.

Panasonic RP-HX40

Panasonic RP-HX40

Despite some shortcomings in the design and comfort department, the $13 Panasonic RP-HX40s deliver impressive sound for the money and are a good value at around $20 online. Read the review.

Samsung UN32EH4000

Samsung UN32EH4000

The Samsung UN32EH4000 is one of the best TVs available at the size and price (around $300), with above-average picture quality and a svelte design. Read the review.

Cobra iRadar

Cobra iRadar

The Cobra iRadar justifies its entry-level price ($130) as a good radar/laser detector. And when paired with a smartphone running the iRadar app, it becomes a much more flexible and useful speed management tool. Read the review.
