Our first look at the products Sony announced at CES reveals additional details and impresses us anew.
NAS boxes can use old-school protocols and their own apps to back up your PCs from far and near, as well as sync with cloud services to keep your mobile data safe.
This large-screen 4K UHD smart TV has a super-responsive interface, and the picture is surprisingly rich given the absence of quantum dots.
For a NAS box with a boatload of software features and top-notch performance, the WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra is amazingly affordable.
Zyxel's NAS520 is an affordable NAS box with good streaming and backup features, but it's a bit less refined than mainstream users would want.
TerraMaster's FS-220 is relatively new to the NAS category, but it's a great performer with a promising interface.
With a boatload of pro features and excellent performance, this is a box better suited for the small office than the home, but it streams as smoothly as any of its rivals.
QNAP's TS-251A NAS has the ability to output video directly to an external 1080 display and is a great media streamer. The advertised on-the-fly 4K transcoding, on the other hand, proved to be weak.
Synology's DS216play NAS is a middling performer, but there's no better NAS box available for media streaming and 4K transcoding.
Seagate's Personal Cloud 3TB NAS is only a single-bay NAS, but $140 for 3TB of storage and advanced software features is a steal.
Cobra's CDR895D Drive HD is a dual-channel dash cam with near 360-degree coverage and a surprisingly affordable price.
Thinkware's F770 is unique for shifting its video viewing and settings largely to your smartphone. For the price, it offers the full list of features and is easy to use.
Garmin's DriveAssist 50LMT is really a high-end navigation accessory with dash-cam features, and it offers many nice perks—plus a puzzling limitation.
The Viofo A119 is an incredible bargain: just $100 for a simple dash cam including GPS, with high-quality daytime and nighttime video and other handy features. It asks only that you bring your own storage card.
With Philips incorporating Dolby Vision support into its 2017 TVs and 4K UHD Blu-ray players, the HDR tech scores another big win.
