Best Products: 81-90

Kodak Easyshare Gallery
81. Kodak EasyShare Gallery
Photo Printing Service ($0.15 for each 4-by-6 print) Though its prices are among the highest of the online printers, Kodak made the best prints in our tests. Review

82. EvDO
Wireless Broadband ($45 to $80 per month) What's better than Wi-Fi? Wi-Fi speed without the need to be near an access point. Evolution-Data Optimized service, from Verizon Wireless or Sprint, still has some performance issues, but it's a sign of things to come. Review

83. LaCie d2 Hard Drive Serial ATA
External Hard Drive ($400) In our tests, this 400GB drive with an External SATA-150 interface and a 7200-rpm mechanism outperformed every USB 2.0 or FireWire 400 drive we evaluated. Review | Latest Prices

84. HP Md5880n
DLP TV ($4000) A 58-inch Digital Light Projection set, the well-designed Md5880n was the highest-scoring television in our tests. Review | Latest Prices

85. Qnext 2
P-to-P Communications (free) Not just for instant messaging, this Java-based suite supports IM, videoconferencing, VoIP, file sharing, music and photo sharing, and remote PC access (it won't wash your car or make you dinner, though). Review

86. Salling Clicker 3
Presentation Remote ($24) Use this inexpensive utility to turn a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone into a remote control for changing presentation slides or switching songs on a media player. Web Site

87. Epson Perfection V700
Photo Scanner ($550) The flatbed V700 has a maximum optical resolution of 6400 dpi, a significant advance over the 4800-dpi competition. Review | Latest Prices

88. Mindjet MindManager Pro 6
Data-Organizing Software ($349) For people who swear by "mind mapping"--using software to organize and manage information through flow charting--this app is the best we've seen. Web Site | Latest Prices

89. Microsoft Xbox 360
Game Console ($400 and up) With a pair of 3.2-GHz CPUs, half a gig of RAM, and built-in wireless, the Xbox 360 can run games in high def. Review | Latest Prices

iRiver Clix

90. iRiver Clix
Digital Audio/Video Player ($199) The iRiver Clix, a 2GB successor to the 1GB U10, is smaller and cuter than the video-enabled iPod despite packing a similar-size (2.2-inch, 320-by-240-pixel) display. You can transcode files from the television shows you've recorded, for free. The Clix has FM radio and Flash games, and it holds about 28 hours of audio files or 4.5 hours of video files.
