Top-rated reviews of the week (pictures)

A home cinema projector with "class-leading" light output, one of the "best small tablets around," the "fastest portable hard drive to date," a "superlative" wireless Bluetooth speaker, and a phone that "blows all other budget handsets out of the water." Yes. CNET's editors liked these things. Welcome to the top-rated reviews of the week.

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030UB is better then ever, with excellent picture quality for the money and class-leading light output, making it shine in both dark and moderately lit rooms. Read the review.

Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+

Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+

The Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ is by far the fastest portable drive to date and, for power users, totally worth the investment. Read the review.

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III

Though it remains somewhat pricey, the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is a superlative portable wireless loudspeaker, improving on its already impressive predecessor. Read the review.

Xiaomi Redmi

Xiaomi Redmi

The Xiaomi Redmi offers exceptional value for its low price, and blows all other budget handsets out of the water. If you're looking for a cheap Android smartphone without having to compromise performance, look no further. Read the review.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4

The premium specs and high-end feel of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 make it one of the best small tablets around. Read the review.

Pad & Quill Sleeve for MacBook

Pad & Quill Sleeve for MacBook

Thickly padded, and handmade from premium materials, the Pad & Quill Sleeve for MacBook will fit your 13-inch Air or Pro and fills an important need if you don't want to use a dedicated, padded laptop bag. Read the review.

VSCO Cam for iOS

VSCO Cam for iOS

VSCO Cam for iOS is a great download for taking and editing photos, though the new curated feed, while nice to look at, is lacking useful features. Read the review.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet

2014 Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet is an extraordinarily comfortable car, and offers cutting-edge driver-assistance features, but cabin electronics are in need of some refinement. Read the review.

Samsung Shape M7

Samsung Shape M7

The Samsung Shape M7 is a versatile streaming speaker that sounds better than the Sonos Play:3 but lacks a rich ecosystem of products and supported services. Read the review.

Microsoft OneDrive for iOS

Microsoft OneDrive for iOS

Microsoft OneDrive for iOS is a solid cloud storage option that's a must for Office users, but it doesn't offer many extra features that distinguish it from its competitors. Read the review.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro

Not quite a workstation replacement, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro is an expensive behemoth of a tablet with a vast amount of features that will benefit only the most serious of tablet users. Read the review.

HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2

HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2

A rare larger-screen hybrid, the HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2 aims to be both a portable laptop and a video-friendly slate. The price is right, but the design feels awkward, and the wonky touch pad makes it hard to use as a full-time laptop. Read the review.

Yamaha YSP-1400

Yamaha YSP-1400

The Yamaha YSP-1400 brings the company's Digital Sound Projector technology to a budget price point, but a couple of caveats keep it from being a standout sound bar. Read the review.
