B&W's P9 Signature headphones celebrate the company's 50th anniversary.

Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature Headphones review: Exquisite design, gorgeous sound

B&W knows how to celebrate. The British audio company is marking its 50th anniversary with a set of to-die-for cans.

netatmo presence on wood siding

Netatmo Presence review: This outdoor home security camera/floodlight justifies its high price tag

It costs almost twice as much as some of its closest competitors, but you’ll only pay once because there are no subscription fees.

LIFX 800

LIFX White 800 review: A distant second to Philips Hue

LIFX’s color-tunable bulb excels, but its white bulb simply doesn’t hit the same highs.

Sengled Element Touch

Sengled Element Touch review: A quirky, but inexpensive ZigBee bulb

The “touch” in its name refers to a button on the bulb that can cycle through four levels of brightness.

TP-Link LB120

TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi LED Bulb LB120 review: This would be a great bulb if it wasn’t so dim

Wi-Fi connectivity means you don’t need a hub, but this globe just doesn’t get bright enough.

Philips Hue White Ambiance Starter Kit

Philips Hue White Ambiance A19 Starter Kit review: This is the bulb to beat

The Hue produces amazing light across the white spectrum.

Cree Connected

Cree’s smart bulbs work with a variety of smart-home hubs, but that means Cree has a lot less control over the user experience.

C by GE 4-pack

C by GE smart LED bulb review: Not the right choice for enthusiasts

The C-Life is an inexpensive choice, but its value is undercut by the price of the C-Sleep.

Philips Scene Switch

Philips SceneSwitch review: It’s not a smart bulb, but it is clever

This new white-only LED bulb changes color with a flip of the switch instead of an app on your phone.

TP Link LB130 color

TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi LED Bulb LB130 review: An inexpensive color option

It’s cheaper than the only competing color Wi-Fi bulb, but it’s not better.

LampChamp

This gadget turns most any lamp into a readily accessible USB charger.

Roost Smart Smoke Alarm RSA-400 review: It’s all about that battery

This 4-in-1 smoke detector comes with a smart back-up battery, but that’s as high as it raises the bar.

D-Link DCS-5030L HD Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Camera review: This camera covers a lot of ground

This is a fantastic home security camera for monitoring large spaces and tracking kids or pets.

Netatmo Home Health Coach

Netatmo Healthy Home Coach review: This indoor climate monitor reports the obvious

This gizmo monitors indoor air quality, temperature, humidity, and noise, but it won't tell you much you don't already know.
