  • Still too expensive? Pioneer's BDP-120 Blu-ray player is less than $300

    Complaints that Blu-ray is too expensive—we say it often—may soon be harder to justify, now that Pioneer will release the $250 BDP-120 in April. It’s just a Blu-ray player—no fancy Netflix streaming here—but if all you’re looking for is an inexpensive player (and have no interest in the PS3) you could do worse. Read More

  • Toshiba 2009 CES Press Event

    Poor Toshiba. While every other major CE player is introducing 4th and 5th gen Blu-ray players, Toshiba is still ignoring the winning format. The company does, however, have some nice flat screens coming out in 2009 with widgets powered by Intel and Yahoo that’s going to work nicely with Windows Media Center.

    Monster Cable: hate ’em or love ’em, they are a driving force in the CE world. Their 2009 lineup, at least according to its wares spread out in front, doesn’t look to innovate. A few headphones we’ve already seen and reviewed, a couple of new power centers, and HP branded HDMI cables that are sure to carry a high MSRP.

    Unless you’re down to hobble your own crazy homebrew set-up, tinkering with wireless audio systems is a damned expensive hobby.

  • CES 2009: Brief hands-on with HP's Dv2

    This thing just popped up on the radar yesterday, and I really liked the look of it. I saw it at the HP booth at Unveiled, and thought I’d take a quick video. They do a really good job of keeping the lighting nice and dim in the ballroom, so it should be blurry and orangey. Couple extra pictures, too. Read More
