http://amzn.to/sUSUfa : Check Priceset-up was a breeze, and i had no problem connecting it to my wifi. i really wanted an internet-ready tv, and don't plan on getting cable! the apps are great: mostly, i use vudu for movies, pandora for music, and hulu plus for tv shows - having weather/news apps is also nice. as promised, hulu plus came after an upgrade (to figure this out, i did some research, then contacted vizio customer service through their online chat support, they were very helpful - basically as long as your tv is connected to the internet you'll get it automatically). this is my first HDTV and i think the picture/sound quality are fantastic. the remote is ok but the buttons are sometimes inconsistent - i really wish we had the option to upgrade to the fancier vizio remote with the qwerty keyboard. overall, im very happy with it, especially at this price point - it feels like a smart tv (and i joke about relinquishing my phd to it)!
http://amzn.to/rWjB3RLike everyone else interested in making the big screen purchase, I spent hours every night reading reviews, shopping around, comparing specs and prices, and trying to decide whether I should go lcd or plasma. Ultimately, I ended up just going to the local BB and seeing which one looked and felt right to me. I purchased this beautiful 55in plasma and I couldn't be happier about it. I've had it for over two weeks now and I don't have a single complaint. The picture is great and the sound is just fine for my living space(apartment). The 2D-3D conversion is alright but you should not expect much from any television's conversion. The 3D Blu-Ray is a different story - The Ultimate Wave Tahiti is AMAZING (I had to watch it twice because I didn't follow a word because I was so blown away by the picture) and Resident Evil Afterlife was fun to watch (the 3D at least).
http://amzn.to/tMP3BJ : Read MoreLG LHB536 is a overall a good system for the price. Price will probably come down. So if you can wait to buy, keep an eye on the price. Sound is good and there are no wireless speakers but speakers are easy to hook up. The wireless connection is great for streaming video from Netflix. I love this feature. If you have cable set top box you connect the HDMI output from the box to an HDMI input on the LG system. Then you connect the HDMI out from the LG to an HDMI input on your TV. You DO NOT need a digital optical out cable if you connect using HDMI. The instructions that come with the system to set it up Stink but you can get good support by calling their support line.PROS: Price, sound, picture, wifi with streaming video if you subscribe to Netflix, Vudu, cinemax etc., I POD connect, Bluray DVD. Good telephone supportCons: The remote is not a learning remote, so it will not turn power on for your TV or cablebox. Manual is lacking details
http://amzn.to/uacFMxIf you spend much time driving in unfamiliar territory, especially if you rent cars in big cities, a good portable GPS makes an amazing difference. And the Garmin 255W is the best one I could find in the $250 - $350 range.First this thing just plain works. I haven't had any issues with mine. It was easy to set up and figure out right out of the box, and it's easy to use. It never has had trouble getting sufficient signal unlike earlier and cheaper models.I chose the 255W for several reasons: It uses some of the newest and best maps available. It has one of the more usable touch screens for entering destinations. It's fast to acquire satellites. And Garmin almost always comes out on top in reviews--especially in routing.
http://amzn.to/uPeiRW : Check PriceI am totally in love with this toaster oven! It is a heavy, quality appliance, with numerous handy, smart features. I just got it today, and I will update my review later if needed. I cooked some *perfect* cupcakes in it a little while ago, so I'm going on that experience.
http://amzn.to/uYyqjN : Check PriceI've worked with computers for over 35 years beginning as a Navy telecommunications technician in 1975. This machine is far and away the best computer I have ever owned. It is super fast and super light. It's also a Mac so it's rock solid. It is pricey but it's well worth it.
http://amzn.to/tGe89i : Read MoreI buy a ton of stuff on Amazon and almost never leave reviews, but I have to stop for a moment to say that I absolutely love this laptop. It's super fast for day-to-day work (starting programs, browsing the web, running a bunch of stuff at once). I cannot yet testify as to heavy-duty Photoshop, Logic, etc. type of work. The Lion gestures are very slick. I have had no problems whatsoever with Wifi consistency, Bluetooth connections to Apple trackpad and keyboard, connecting to external monitors either with HDMI or DVI adapters, powering portable external hard drives with only the USB port, using the usb ethernet adapter, etc.In short, I have been using it on a daily basis since it first hit the market, and I think Apple crushed it with this laptop. I love it.
http://amzn.to/u7qaEp : Read moreTaken during a nice sunny day (but not the kind of harsh very bright sunlight) about 3 pm. As you can see, colors are on the high saturation side with decent dynamic range on contrast. This camera is okay for the price and IMO gives good value for entry level full HD camcorder. It can fit in your cargo pants pocket or hoodie pocket for convenience.CONS: Before you buy this camera make sure your video editing program either works with or can concert 1080p in AVI format. I use Pinnacle Studio HD 14 and it works well with this camcorders files but only if I video in 720p. It can't work with the 1080p files and I have to use another programs to either render to 720p or convert to 1080p mp4.Don't buy this if you plan to use the still photos. They are very average quality (if not below) and needs optimal lighting conditions for acceptable still photos.

http://amzn.to/sOLNIB : Read More ReviewsFirstly, it's a great price for an unlocked phone that can be used with AT&T, TMobile, prepaid, and any other GSM (SIM card) service providers worldwide. I'm not going to repeat the technical specifications. It is very light, portable and has excellent battery life. You can talk for a really long time. Make sure to turn off WIFI when it's not being used. This phone is perfect for everyday use, or as a backup or a second phone. I love the FM radio.It also makes a decent gift.I would recommend it over any carrier branded phone. It is always cheaper in the long run to get an unsubsidized phone.
http://amzn.to/v0RhNJ : Read MoreWe have been waiting years for just the right tv. I bought this sony googletv to replace my 20" sony tube tv (yep you heard me right 20") that I bought 14 years ago and was still going strong. So I dont have much to compare with as far as picture quality or sound or internet. I was blown away by the picture (when I finally got it hooked up) and the sound is nothing short of amazing when hooked up through my receiver. I actually heard lines in movies I have never heard before. Only complaint you cant watch hulu or some online shows through the network website. Closed Caption does not work through tv must set up with your cable box instead. Love the picture in picture. Beautiful people arent as beautiful in HD.
