Sony Cyber-shot DSC-M1

Sony DSC-M1 cameraImagine that your digital camera developed cell phone envy and tried to transform itself into a hip, nightclubbing swivel-phone from Virgin Mobile. Next imagine that it fell in love with a Wall Street banker and decided to put on a sophisticated, charcoal-black finish reminiscent of a chunk of hematite.… Read the rest

LG VX6100

LG VX6100 phoneSometimes, simplicity wins the day. While other phones seek the prize for the slimmest profile, the lightest weight, the biggest LCD, or the loudest ring tone, LG’s VX6100 succeeds by offering a straightforward set of useful features in a sleek, if unremarkable, package.… Read the rest

Fogware Internet Radio Recorder

We’ve been looking for a way to beef up our music collections without dipping into the ramen noodle fund ever since the iron fist of the law came smashing down on the paradise of free file-trading that was Napster. That’s why we were excited to try Fogware’s Internet Radio Recorder, a Windows program that, for the price of a couple of CDs, lets us save internet radio streams to our heart’s content.… Read the rest

Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go Pro

Verbatim Store Sure, it may not look like much. But the Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go Pro has a lot going for it — not the least of which is its 6.8MB-per-second write speed, the fastest of any thumbdrive we’ve tested. When you’re rushing to get the last few files onto your virtual briefcase so that you can head home for the weekend, write speeds like this make a big difference.… Read the rest

Maxtor OneTouch II

Maxtor OneTouch IIBackups are boring. Backups are tedious. That’s why no one backs up — and why, one day, you’ll inevitably lose everything you own to a hard-drive crash. Maxtor’s OneTouch II can save you from that miserable fate by making backups as simple as poking a little blue button.… Read the rest

FujiFilm FinePix E550

fujifilm e550If nothing matters but the megapixels, take a look at the Fujifilm FinePix E550, one of the few cameras of its size (or price) to top 6 megapixels. It delivers stunningly detailed, well-exposed shots with good color. Leather, fur, the nubbly texture of stucco — no matter what your fetish, the textures will look good in pictures from this camera.… Read the rest

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W1

Sony DSC-W1 cameraFlexibility and ease of use are not mutually exclusive, though most camera makers don’t know that. You shouldn’t have to choose between pocket point-and-shoot cameras and larger, bulkier, and complicated models that let you make manual adjustments to ensure the perfect shot.… Read the rest

Canon EOS 20D

Canon EOS 20DFilm-camera snobs, cower in fear. The Canon EOS 20D is a shot across the bow of your beloved 35mm camera. More than that: It’s the first digital camera we’ve tested that has the mettle to go head-to-head with high-end film cameras and come out on top.… Read the rest

Fisher FVD-C1 Pocket CameraCorder

The Fisher FVD-C1 Pocket CameraCorder’s unusual shape tips you off that something went terribly wrong in the design studio at Sanyo (Fisher’s parent company). The concept is good: Pair a decent 3.2-megapixel still camera with the ability to take MPEG-4 compressed videos, add sound recording and a friendly female voice to tell you what’s going on.… Read the rest

Panasonic SV-AV100 D-snap

Panasonic SV-AV100 D-snapA little thicker than a box of Altoids, the D-snap packs video recording and still-photo capabilities into a package small enough to fit in a pants pocket or behind a potted plant. Despite its size, the D-snap takes remarkably good videos — comparable to, or even slightly better than, the full-size DVD camcorders here — and its LCD is actually no smaller than that of most full-size camcorders.… Read the rest
