  • 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.

  • Dell SP2309W

    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.
