NO FOOTAGE JVC's Everio camcorders ditch those archaic videotapes in favor of recording to a hard disk. The 30 gigs onboard the flagship model will hold 10.5 hours of DVD-quality material - captured in eye-catching color, thanks to the three CCD image sensors (cheaper cams have just one).

FULLY ARMED That sweet flat-panel TV you just bought demands to be mounted on a wall. Problem: The spot you've set aside for it has you seeing mostly glare. Don't give up and get a floor stand - get K2's X-Arm mount.

Keep It Real It's kind of a bizarre resolution for a plasma TV - 1,024 x 1,080 pixels - but Hitachi just might know what it's doing here. Those 1 million pixels are driven by a technology called ALiS (Alternate Lighting of Surfaces) to get the most detail out of 1080i signals (the most common HD format) and bestow a smoother, more filmlike picture.

TERABYTE POWER Unless you're Sony BMG, you'll never run out of room for your music in the AudioReQuest S4.2500. Its massive 1.5-terabyte hard disk can hold 2,500 CDs worth of music - and that's uncompressed. If you go the MP3 route, there's enough room for 360,000 songs! Even the most dedicated Deadhead could fit his collection on that.

Thanks to their portability, personal navigation devices (PNDs) are finding their way into the hands of more and more drivers of multiple vehicles. PNDs not only assist in getting you from point A to point B - as well as locate every ATM and Starbucks in between - they also offer features such as MP3 compatibility and real-time traffic info.

SPIN ZONE Handy and fun! That's the Cableyoyo Pop, a stick-on spool that you can attach to most MP3 players. If you can bear making your iPod a bit thicker, the Pop adheres to its backside and serves as a place to roll up your headphones, which stay in place thanks to a tiny clip.

STEALTH SUB It's not enough for a subwoofer to boom you anymore - today's bass boxes gotta blend in, too. The triangular design of the Atlantic Technology 10 CSB sub will ensure it keeps a low profile in the corner of your home theater - that is, until a movie soundtrack or drum solo calls upon its 10-inch driver and 180-watt amplifier to rock the house.

NO WIRES The Philips Streamium music system takes all the complexity - and cables - out of multiroom audio through the wireless magic of Wi-Fi (802.11g). As soon as you turn on the WACS700 main base (left) and its satellite, they automatically find each other - no pairing, seeking, or inputting required.

BACK IN BLACK The Optoma HD7100 front projector takes contrast to a new level with Texas Instruments' DarkChip3 DLP technology, providing an impressive 5,000:1 rated contrast ratio. So no matter how dark things get onscreen, the picture stays sharp and detailed.

NUMBERS GAME The hot spec on HDTVs this year is 1080p resolution, and the Sharp Aquos LC-37D90U 37-inch LCD joins the crowd with a 1,920 x 1,080-pixel screen and a 1080p input. That means it will not only show every last detail of a 1080i HD signal, but that the display is pretty much future-proof - until they start broadcasting holograms.
