    Creative iRoar Go

    Creative iRoar Go

    This wireless Bluetooth speaker delivers satisfying sound and can go pretty much anywhere, thanks to its small size, weatherproof design, and built-in rechargeable battery. Creative’s "SuperWide" technology, CR experts report, makes music sound larger and individual instruments more distinct from one another.

        Asus ZenPad S 8.0 Z580C-B1 (32GB)

        With an 8-inch screen, this is the smallest of the Asus tablets.

            This 12-cup food processor scored second best in CR testing after the Breville Sous Chef BFP800XL/A, but it costs about half as much.

It has two operating speeds and comes with a mini-bowl attachment, dough blade, and separate slicing and shredding blades.
