"Digital SLRs are hot. The Canon EOS Rebel T2i is the best of the lot, particularly at its price point. Best part: HD video shot with this camera will simply blow you away. Consumers like convergence devices and the newest Rebel delivers in spades: large, 3-inch wide screen, improved ergonomics, 14-bit DIGIC 4 image processor for superior pictures and full 1080p HD recording. Very popular."
"Need a compact digital camera? There is simply nothing that compares to this compact Canon PowerShot S90 camera on the market today. It's perfect for taking those "self-portraits" that are sweeping the Facebook market today. The pictures produced by this camera put my digital SLR from 2008, the Olympus EVOLT E-420, to shame. Highly recommended."
"What can I say? Every day, I watch this HDTV set completely mesmerized. What image quality! The Samsung B8500 delivers a simply stunning, super-sharp image with spectacular color. And its full-LED backlighting technology is better than many of the latest, edge-lit generations from both Samsung and Sony. From the moment you hear its start-up chime, you know youÂ’re in for a special treat."
"This Miele Polaris canister vacuum cleaner receives nothing but raves from owners. Everyone loves its incredibly light weight, which makes it extremely maneuverable. They may be expensive, but Mieles will easily last 10 years. My first Miele lasted 11, and I wouldn't even have replaced if I didn't lust after this light Polaris so much. :)"
"The best gas grill on the market today is the Weber Genesis E-310, and if you need an extra outside burner, the E-320 for $50 more. Weber gas grills are as famous as their charcoal siblings, and for good reason. The Weber Genesis series are easy to clean, convenient and consistently produce delicious BBQ food. Besides black, the Genesis is also available in copper, dark green and stainless."
"Heard about the latest LED lighting trend? Painting your room with colored LED lighting is going to revolutionize the home decor business. If you want to familiarize yourself with this trend, get the Philips LivingColors LED lamp and think creative."
"I have two of these. They will change your life, mark my words. What do you use it for? It's perfect for reading magazines, online shopping, social networking and surfing. The iPad will quickly replace about 30-40% of the time you spend on your laptop because it's lighter and easy to take to bed...or to the bathroom for that matter. ;)"
"The aficionados love this lower-cost Blu-ray player from Oppo. Its sibling, the BDP-83 has received stellar reviews. This model is also a universal player that handles SACD and DVD-Audio discs for those who still own those formats. Besides being versatile the BDP-83 is fast, a big advantage over slower players that dot the HDTV landscape."
"CNET rates the Canon PIXMA MX870 tops among multi-function printers, only dinging it for producing small specks on photos. Don't know about you, but MFPs are more often used for scanning, faxing and printing travel itineraries. And that's when the Canon shines. It's also very easy to set-up as a network printer, either via Ethernet or wireless."
"If you have been looking for an inexpensive laptop but have been resisting buying a low-performance netbook, look no further. This new Toshiba has it all: a dual-core AMD chip with low heat and improved battery performance, bigger 11.6-inch screen, plus Windows Home Premium. All the latest trends are here too: chiclet keyboard, wider, touch trackpad, and beautiful, textured finish. A winner."
"Can't believe it took me this long to replace my Logitech Harmony 1000 remote with the Harmony One. I'm impressed with its speed, superb button layout and nice color LCD screen. Since I was already set-up online with the 1000, setting up the Harmony One was a breeze. It may seem expensive as remotes go, but once you see how easy it is to add your devices online, youÂ’ll understand the value."
"When I went looking for the best label printer, a Brother Macworld booth rep recommended the Brother QL-570, which uses print cartridges so you can switch labels quickly, plus has easy-to-use Mac and Windows software to design custom labels for that professional look. ItÂ’s also very fast and quiet. The Brother QL-570 is a winner."
"This is a must-have for any digital camera owner (but not DSLRs). You can dramatically sharpen your images by placing it on the handy Joby Gorillapod and attach it to just about anything. Highly recommended. Has become indispensable for my global trendwatching. :)"
"This new beauty from Garmin has just started shipping and is the finest Garmin GPS ever. It excels in hi-res graphics (480 x 800), responsive touch-screen, photo-real junction view with 3D landscapes, fast screen redraws, high-volume Bluetooth, all provided in an iPhone-thin package."
