Beats Studio 2013

Beats Studio 2013

And the Beats go on. They may not be a bargain at $300, but the new Beats Studio headphones are lighter and better-built and sound significantly better than the original Beats Studio model. Read the review.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

If you're not interested in using a stylus, this high-end tablet isn't a deal. But if you are, the improved S Pen goes a long way to making the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 worth the extra cost. Read the review.

Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Router

The Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Router is expensive, but earns its keep with incredibly fast speeds and useful features. Plus, don't you want a router that hunts the night? Endlessly...mercilessly...silently? No? Read the review.

Canon EOS 70D

Canon EOS 70D

The eagerly awaited replacement for the 60D, the Canon EOS 70D won't be getting the blue ribbon for image quality, but it's fun to shoot with, fast and fluid, and an overall excellent camera. Read the review.

2014 Jaguar F-Type

2014 Jaguar F-Type

We fell in love with the gorgeous curves and excellent performance of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type but middling tech and a far-from-middling price have us eyeballing its German competitors. Yes, this Jag made a Porsche look like the practical choice. Read the review.
