It’s time, I think, to get rid of my cable TV service. It’s over-priced and under-used in my house. These days, I can find most of the shows I like on Hulu or iTunes, anyway. Most, but not all. And there are times when I want […] Read more »

 ViewSonic’s VPD400 HD MovieBook is a competent, capable portable media player. It’s an attractive device that plays back good-looking video and supports plenty of file formats. But it lacks some features — like a touch screen — that could make it stand out in today’s already […] Read more »

It’s been more than a year since I looked at ZeeVee’s Internet video manager application, and a lot has changed since then. The app formerly known as ZViewer is now called Zinc, and though it’s still in beta, it’s significantly more polished than it was last […] Read more »

You don’t have to buy a new television to get a new HDTV, according to KWorld. Its new External ATSC/QAM TVBox HDMI Edition (SA295-Q DE) can turn your existing LCD monitor into a fully functional high-definition television, with no computer required. The $109 device suffers from […] Read more »

Popcorn Hour calls its C-200 set-top box a “networked media tank,” and the description couldn’t be more apt. The C-200 is big and powerful, but somewhat lacking in the finesse department. Still, this set-top box is one of the best devices I’ve tested for viewing your […] Read more »

The Motorola Droid has been widely touted as Verizon’s iPhone killer, and this Android-based smartphone has drawn hordes of fans in the month or so since its release. Many of those admirers love to talk about how the Droid is so much better than the iPhone. […] Read more »

When I first saw the teensy-tiny WD TV Mini, I thought I was in love. This small multimedia player — slightly bigger than a man’s wallet — was the set-top box for me, I thought. I pictured it sitting, almost unnoticed, next to my TV, playing […] Read more »

Monsoon Multimedia’s HAVA products have long been a lesser-known competitor to the Slingbox line of place-shifting devices. I’ve always been impressed with the HAVAs I tested, which were functionally better then most Slingboxes, though a little less refined. The same is not true of the newly released […] Read more »

How much you’ll like 3M’s M120Pro Pico Projector largely depends on your expectations. If you’re looking for a full-scale, high-powered home entertainment projector, you’re going to be sorely disappointed.

If you’re a casual football fan like me — meaning you follow one team, you don’t have a fantasy league, and you don’t have any, ahem, money riding on the games — then the NFL’s RedZone football channel and Verizon FiOS’s NFL RedZone widget will likely […] Read more »

Hard drives and network-attached storage devices aren’t supposed to be stylish, right? If so, nobody told Iomega, whose Home Media Network Hard Drive is one of the sleekest external drives I’ve ever seen. Of course, looks don’t matter if the drive doesn’t perform as advertised, but […] Read more »

My day-to-day digital camera is a simple, point-and-shoot model. That’s why I was a bit intimidated by Sony’s DSC-HX1 advanced megazoom camera at first. But it didn’t take long for the HX1 to wow me. This camera combines ease of use with high-end features, like HD […] Read more »

It’s been a year and a half since Blu-ray toppled HD DVD to win the high-def DVD format war. While Blu-ray won that battle, it hasn’t exactly set the marketplace — or the tech industry — on fire. Consumers have been relatively slow to upgrade to […] Read more »

I really like Dexim’s AV Dock Station, a handy little gadget that lets you connect your iPod or iPhone to your TV. In fact, if not for one pretty major flaw, I’d be ready to buy one of these myself. The DRA107 AV Dock Station is […] Read more »

It’s early August, so you know what that means: It’s time to start working on my holiday wish list. Right? Well, maybe it’s a little early for holiday shopping, but that’s not stopping me. Here are a few products I’ve got my eye on this year. […] Read more »

The iPhone got plenty of press earlier this summer when Apple finally added video recording features to the phone. Many of Nokia’s smartphones, though, have had video recording (and even video calling) features for years. And in Nokia’s Ovi Store, you’ll find plenty of apps that take advantage […] Read more »

If there’s one thing I hate, it’s clutter. That’s why I love the idea of wireless HD products, which allow you to transmit high-definition content without a mess of unsightly wires. And, now I’ve found a wireless HD kit that actually comes at an affordable price: […] Read more »

I was never expecting that Vuzix’s iWear AV310 Widescreen glasses would replace my big-screen TV. But I did think that this “wearable display,” which the company claims can create the experience of viewing a 52-inch screen from nine feet away, could be fun. Sadly, I was […] Read more »
