Zagg Slim Book for iPad Air 2
January 26, 2015
There are a variety of productivity apps in Apple's App Store, including Pages and Google Docs, both of which are free. That means if you've got an iPad, you can get some basic work done without the need for a heavier laptop. Even Lenovo's insanely lightweight LaViecan't compete with the iPad Air 2's portability and weight. The $129.99 Zagg Slim Book for iPad Air 2 is the sleek version of the bulkierZagg Rugged Folio, and as such, it unleashes your iPad Air 2's productivity capabilities. The keyboards are almost identical, and they both feature detachable sections that add versatility. These features easily earn the Zagg Slim Book for iPad Air 2 our Editors' Choice accolade. Design and Features Measuring 9.6 by 7 by 0.60 inches (HWD), the Slim Book by Zagg is a svelte keyboard case for your iPad Air 2. It weighs 1.1 pounds-not unnoticeable, but not bad, and the majority of which comes from the keyboard section. The Slim Book has portability and sleek aesthetics in mind, rather than rugged protection, so it's smaller and lighter than the Rugged Foliowe tested for the iPad Air, which has a steel plate in itskeyboard section.

Casio Slim XJ-A247
January 22, 2015
The Casio Slim XJ-A247 ($1,209.99) is a lightweight data projector that includes some nifty features, such as a generous 2X zoom and standard Wi-Fi, with the adapter included. It uses Casio's hybrid LED-laser light engine, which has a light source that should last the lifetime of the projector. The XJ-A247 has solid data-image quality, and is a good choice if you don't include much video in your presentations. Design This WXGA (1,280-by-800) DLP projector is rated at 2,500 lumens. Its hybrid light engine produces red with LEDs, blue with lasers, and green by shining the blue laser light on a phosphor. Various optics direct the red, green, and blue light to the DLP chip, and out the front lens. The LED lamp is designed to last up to 20,000 hours, far longer than typical projector bulbs-and unlike most projector lamps, it's mercury-free.

Casio Slim XJ-A242
January 22, 2015
The Casio Slim XJ-A242 ($1,049.99) is one of the latest projectors to feature the company's hybrid LED/laser light engine. One advantage of this technology is that the light source should last the lifetime of the device, while most projectors have bulbs that need replacement every few years.The XJ-A242 brings solid image quality for data presentations, whether in a classroom or boardroom. Design The XJ-A242 is a lightweight WXGA (1,280-by-800) DLP projector, rated at 2,500 lumens. Instead of producing red, green, and blue using a standard lamp and a color wheel, the hybrid light source produces the color red with LEDs, blue with lasers, and green by shining the blue laser light on a phosphor. Various optics direct the red, green, and blue lights to the DLP chip, and out the front lens. The LED lamp is designed to last up to 20,000 hours, far longer than typical projector bulbs. The projector (including the bulb) is backed by a generous 3-year warranty.

OCO WiFi Cloud Camera
January 22, 2015
Adding round-the-clock video surveillance to your home used to be a costly proposition, but not any longer. Today's Wi-Fi-connected camerasprovide a relatively inexpensive way to monitor your home or business using your smartphone, and with productssuch as the Nest Dropcam Proand iON The Homeoffering cloud storage, it's easier than ever to roll back the clock to watch archived video. The OCO WiFi Cloud Camera($149) is the latest entrant in the growing Wi-Fi cloud camera market, and like the Dropcam and iON offerings it has motion and noise detection abilities. This puck-shaped camera delivers sharp, colorful video, installs in minutes, and offers multiple ways to view live video. That said, it tends to switch over to night vision mode before it actually gets dark, and there's no way to capture video without a cloud subscription.

D-Link Wireless AC Day/Night Camera With Color Night Vision (DCS-2136L)
January 22, 2015
Nearly all of today's wireless home connectedwebcamsuse multiple infrared LEDs to capture night vision video, but most of them only deliver it in black-and-white. Enter the D-Link Wireless AC Day/Night Camera With Color Night Vision (DCS-2136L), a 720p home security camera that uses a single white LED to capture full-color night vision video. At $324.99, this indoor Wi-Fi camera doesn't come cheap, but you get a lot for your money, including the latest wireless technology, onboard storage capabilities, and motion detection recording. However, it doesn't offer cloud-based video storage and its night vision color could use a little more pop. Design and Features The DCS-2136L looks like other D-Link Wi-Fi cameras we've reviewed, including the Day/Night Network Cloud Camera 1150 DCS-933Land the HD Wireless N Day/Night Outdoor Cloud Camera DCS-2330L. It measures 3.7 by 2.3 by 1.7 inches (HWD), and is supported by a round stand with a 2.5-inch mounting arm. The camera attaches to the arm with a ball-joint mechanism that lets you swivel and rotate the camera for optimal coverage.
