Samsung SyncMaster 245B

The DNS-323 is a two-drive network storage enclosure (it doesn't come with any hard drives, users can install their own) that's relatively easy to set up and use. It doesn't have an extensive feature-set, but it's well-suited to the average home netw...

Sonos Digital Music System Bundle 130

Pioneer DVR-212

On the whole, Pioneer's 12th generation DVD burner is one of the best devices in its class. Capable of writing single-layer DVDs at a rate of 18x, and double-layer DVDs at a rate of 10x, it's a very quick burner, and our lengthy test period showed it...

Pioneer BDR-202BK

For early adopters, Pioneer's BDR-202BK Blu-ray writer is a good choice. It's priced at just under $900, and it can perform all the functions of a typical DVD burner, as well as read and write to Blu-ray discs. In fact, it's an especially good tool f...

Grundig IR 6114

Grundig's IR 6114 is somewhat of a throwback to the radio-cassette players of old. However, instead of blaring tunes from a crinkly tape, the Grundig can stream MP3 files, and instead of tuning in to dodgy AM/FM signals, it can stream Internet radio ...

The Fujitsu Q2010 (3G) isn't the quickest notebook on the market, but it's among the lightest. It ships with a built-in HSDPA (3G) module, which can achieve download speeds up to 1.8Mbps in areas where the 3G signal strength is strong.
