-At $200, one would hope that Pandigital SuperNova Tablet wouldn't feel like a $200 tablet, but something more expensive. In other words, if you're getting a tablet for $200, you're probably hoping that at the very least, it doesn't feel cheap. The good news is that it doesn't feel like it cost $200. The bad news is that it actually feels a little bit cheaper. The 8-inch Supernova has a very classic like feel when held, but at the same time is light and smooth with no jagged edges or sharp corners. It also includes more features than we were expecting with a micro SD card slot, headphone jack, mini USB, micro HDMI, and a power button and volume racker on the top. There is both a front facing and rear camera. The tablet runs Android 2.3, so it also has 4-Android navigation buttons, home settings back and search on the front, and on the back, in the top right corner is a single speaker. Navigation feels fairly snappy, but we did notice some lag when opening certain things like the gallery app. The screen has a low resolution and narrow viewing angles making text look less sharp than what we are accustomed to. The biggest problem with the OS, however, is the lack of an Android market. Instead, you get the rock bottom poor men's version called GetJar, which doesn't have nearly as many apps available. Even at $200, the Pandigital SuperNova isn't worth the asking price. It works as a very basic tablet and if that's all you're looking for rest assured, you'll get that. However, there are better ways to spend your tablet craving dollar with tablets that are much better values even at higher prices. I'm Eric Franklin, and this has been the first look at the Pandigital SuperNova.
While it offers an appealing mix of features and a refreshingly simple design, the LG 50PC3D 50-inch plasma doesn't perform well enough to earn our strong recommendation.
The Sony VAIO VGN-FS570 offers an adequate array of features but doesn't deliver enough performance to justify its premium price.
The Apple iPhone 3G S offers enough improvements over the previous model to make it a compelling upgrade. If you can get it at the cheapest subsidized prices, and you can be patient with AT&T, it's worth the time and money to get Apple's newest cell phone.
The Pandigital 8-inch PanTouch Photo Frame comes with touch sensors and holds 3200 photos.
The Asus Nova P22 makes a decent attempt at competing against the Mac Mini. If you want a small PC with 802.11n networking, this system is your best option. Otherwise, Asus can't compete with Apple or other Windows vendors on price, features, or performan
Though we love its bright display, the Sony VAIO VGN-FS680/W doesn't offer enough performance, battery life, or built-in features to justify its high price.
While it packs an impressive punch in terms of sound performance and feature set, the G-17 is more expensive than an iPad and doesn't seem worth its $550 price tag.
The BenQ E2400HD is a 24-inch monitor that sacrifices features for price, but doesn't have enough going for it to best its competition.
The Soundmatters FoxL Personal Audiophile Loudspeaker is well-constructed and offers a super compact design without sacrificing sound quality. Sure, it's pricey, but it's worth it.
The 2006 Mercury Milan is about as average as they come, with features sometimes matching but never outstripping the competition. While pleasant enough to behold, the Milan really doesn't offer much to desire.
