This Week in Reviews [March 12-16]
This week we reviewed three different sets of custom earbuds, the rugged Samsung Rugby Smart, an iDevice that allows you to make FaceTime calls hands-free, five wireless routers, the new $199 Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet, and four laptops — the ASUS EeePC 1025C Flare netbook, the last of a dying breed; the ultra-sleek HP Envy 14 Spectre, which boasts a glass lid and palm rest; the Acer Aspire TimelineX, which packs a ton of power but costs less than $750; and the Acer Aspire Ultra M3, the first Ultrabook to boast discrete graphics. Read on to find out what we thought of each.
Altec Lansing A1 Custom Single Driver Earphone
