Sony's PSZ-HC1T 1TB USB 3.1 (Gen 1) 2.5-inch hard drive isn't a svelte wonder or particularly cheap, but it's perfectly sized and outfitted to stand up to the rigors of the workplace and frequent transport.
There are plenty of great smart TVs. Our guide cuts through the alphabet soup to tell everything you need to know to buy the one that's right for you.
Sony's XBR65A9 65-inch 4K UHD OLED TV offers great color, excellent blacks, and wonderful HDR. It also offers the best sound in a flat-panel TV, bar none. The only problem is that there's a significantly cheaper, but highly worthy competitor in the LG's E8 series.
The compact, relatively inexpensive Akitio NT2 U31C lets you easily combine hard drives for a fast and capacious storage box. But no means are provided for mounting 2.5-inch devices, so it's best for 3.5-inch hard drives.
The Samsung 860 QVO QLC (quad-level cell/4-bit) SATA 6Gbps SSD sets a new low in terms of price per gigabyte, at least in its 2TB and 4TB flavors. It's also a very good performer until you run out of secondary cache.
Kudos to Marley for using recycled materials in the No Bounds XL waterproof Bluetooth speaker. But its sounds mediocre at low volumes, and only average when you crank it.
The best dash cams can record what's ahead (and sometimes what's behind), and mark it with GPS (or what's the point?). This is what you need on the mean streets of modern life.
The Viofo A129 dual-channel, front and rear dash cam duo captures great video, day and night. Integrated GPS and excellent ease of use seal the deal.
Acronis True Image 2019 has all the features and speed you need. But its system footprint is bigger than most, and it might be a bit much for the average user.
The HighPoint 7101A PCIe NVMe RAID is capable of outstanding sustained throughput, but not for the average Windows PC user. Still, it's a peek at the future of high-performance consumer storage.
Sony's XBR X900F can handle just about any kind of material with aplomb, including HDR. But its color palette is subdued and light bleed on black backgrounds is noticeable with the Xtended Dynamic Range function engaged.
The Intel SSD 905P is one of the fastest NVMe drives we've tested, and one of the most expensive. But that's because it's rated to be very durable. If you write a lot of data, that's a selling point worth considering.
It doesn't come with the One Connect breakout box you get with the Q9FN, but it offers nearly the same performance as higher-end model for $700 less.
Nextbase nailed everything with the 612GW dash cam except low-light video. The touchscreen is unique, the styling handsome, and there's even phone connectivity.
