HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One
If you can't print it with the HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One, chances are it's not worth printing. This feature-rich all-in-one is practically guaranteed to streamline your office workflow.
D-Link Xtreme N Storage Router DIR-685
The D-Link DIR 685 is the first wireless router that's also a photo-frame and a network storage device, and it has a drive bay hosting a 2.5-inch SATA hard drive. While the photo-frame feature doesn't really work out (mostly because the router's LCD is too small), other features of the router proved useful in our tests.
HP MediaSmart Server LX195
The HP LX195 is easily the best sub-$400 NAS server on the market. It currently rates as the fastest NAS server CNET has reviewed and comes with a very comprehensive and easy-to-use backup solution for home users. Powered by Windows Home Server, it will make a lot of PC users feel at ease, as it is simple to set up and successfully manage.
QNAP TS-239 Pro dual-bay NAS server
The QNAP TS239 Pro is among the top NAS performers. It offers RAID 1 and RAID 0 configurations and has a very easy-to-use interface. It also supports IP cameras, external hard drives, and printers, thanks to its USB ports.
Samsung SyncMaster XL2370
This thin, light, LED-based 23-inch monitor is simply one of the best monitors of the year. It has a superbright screen, great performance, and is sexy enough to be perfectly at home in any downtown modern apartment, add agency, or trendy nightclub.
The Dell G2410 is one of the lowest-priced and best-performing LED-based monitors. While not as pretty as the Samsung XL2370, its performance keeps it in the same league.
The main reason this 23-incher appears on the list is its 2,048x1,152-pixel resolution. A superhigh resolution is not only great for PC gaming, but - because it scales down - works wonderfully for console gaming and watching movies as well. The five USB ports, screen swivel and built-in Webcam seal the deal.
