The advantage to working at a place like PopSci is that, between our editors and contributors, I'm surrounded by tech experts I can turn to whenever I'm in the market for a gadget and ask simply, "So which one should I buy?" This year, we decided to package all of that expertise into the Tech Buyer's Guide which we're giving away for free starting today.
In each of 17 categories of products, from TVs to camcorders to gaming, we've picked a favorite item, the one we recommend over all the others. And for those on a tight budget, or with money to burn, we've also included a bargain and a splurge pick as well.
Even if you don't feel like trusting our taste, you'll benefit from the core buying advice for each category we've distilled into the Stats that Matter, the Features to Look For, and What You Can Skip.

I hate to be negative on a free guide, but :
- Vid/Graphic loaded -- makes it slow, hard to navigate and touchy ( I have DSL and a 2.5 Ghz processor)
- Descriptions were short and relatively vague -- If they expanded to detail, I couldn't find it.
- relatively few devices in each category, and I'm not sure that I agree with the picks
Saw only one item and gave up. This is too media heavy and not user friendly. A list with pictures and text is more than enough. If I wanted to watch videos, I would turn on the TV. Text and pictures, keep it simple and it would be informative. I am disappointed in PopSci.
I agree. You have fallen prey to one of the classic blunders. The first, of course, is never get involved in a land war in Asia. The second, and only slightly less well known, is never overuse flash animation. Ha ha ha ha ha....
the information given was interesting and enough to get a casual idea of the product.
ya, way too much flash. perhaps re-releasing just a full html text page with the pictures and links will get more positive approval.

Olen samaa mieltä. Olet pudonnut saalis yksi klassinen virheitä. Ensimmäinen tietysti on koskaan osallistunut maa sodassa Aasiassa. Toinen, ja vain hieman vähemmän tunnettuja, ei ole koskaan liikaa flash-animaatio. Ha ha ha ha ha ....
