Top-rated reviews of the week (pictures)

This week, our editors were busy running around at WWDC and E3, but that didn't stop them from reviewing some awesome products. They got their hands on the new 13-inch MacBook Air, an AV receiver that has a turntable input, and a new tower defense game for iOS that'll get you hooked.

Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, June 2013)

Apple keeps the latest MacBook Air updates on the inside, but greatly improved battery life and a lower starting price make up for the lack of flashy design changes. Read the review.

Onkyo TX-NR626

Onkyo TX-NR626

The Onkyo TX-NR626 is a value-packed AV receiver with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even a turntable input, but it's just short of being our top pick. Read the review.

SanDisk Extreme II

SanDisk Extreme II

The SanDisk Extreme II is a speedy replacement for any hard drive, and it won't dig a big hole in your wallet. Read the review.

Kingdom Rush Frontiers for iPhone or iPad

Fast and exciting gameplay makes Kingdom Rush Frontiers a must-have pick for tower defense fans with iOS devices. Read the review.

Sony Vaio Duo 13

Sony Vaio Duo 13

The Sony Vaio Duo 13 is ambitious, but less universally useful than other Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrids. There may not be a real case to be made for a slider-style PC. Read the review.

2013 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon

2013 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon

The wagon format of this powerful 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon gives it an undeniable cool factor, while the handling is surprisingly excellent. But the outdated cabin tech is incentive to wait for an updated 2014 model. Read the review.

HMDX Jam Plus

HMDX Jam Plus

With an appealing design, affordable price, and the option to use a second Jam Plus to create a left/right stereo pair, the HMDX Jam Plus is a worthy budget Bluetooth speaker. Read the review.

Sprint Vital

Sprint Vital

While the Sprint Vital is ZTE's best handset to date, the HTC One outshines it by miles for the same price. Read the review.

Samsung Series 7 Ultra

Samsung Series 7 Ultra

The shiny Samsung Series 7 Ultra has long battery life and a nice design, but its now older processor gives us pause. Read the review.
