Logitech Squeezebox Touch

The Logitech Squeezebox Touch is an excellent digital-music device that offers good sound quality and a great variety of source options, but it's not for casual users. Read the review.

Tenba Mini Photo/Laptop Messenger Bag

Tenba Mini Photo/Laptop Messenger Bag

Smaller and lighter than a typical messenger bag but still able to hold a pro dSLR body, a flash, a couple of small lenses, and a 13-inch laptop, the Tenba Mini Photo/Laptop Messenger Bag is one of the best-designed bags we've seen. Read the review.

Panasonic TC-PGT50 series

Superb picture quality and beautiful design place the Panasonic TC-PGT50 series in the top tier of plasma TVs, but it's more expensive than others with similar performance. Read the review.

Origin Eon 11-S (Core i7-3612QM)

Origin Eon 11-S review (Core i7-3612QM)

As one of the only 11-inch gaming laptops around, the Origin Eon 11-S (Core i7-3612QM) is aimed at a select niche, but if you need a supersmall gaming laptop, it fits the bill nicely. Read the review.

2012 Ford Fiesta

2012 Ford Fiesta

Sync and AppLink give the 2012 Ford Fiesta an impressive techie edge, while the body design and decent fuel economy lend to overall practicality, but the car does not punch above its class in comfort. Read the review.

13-inch MacBook Pro

13-inch MacBook Pro

While the 13-inch MacBook Pro remains a well-built laptop, it's fallen behind the MacBook Air and Retina Display MacBook Pro in design, lacks higher-end upgrades, and feels too expensive compared with the competition. Read the review.
