Top reviews this week: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300, Wammy Desire 2 and more!

The week has seen a mix of product reviews ranging from cameras and smartphones to graphic cards and projectors. Take a look at our review round-up for this week.

Nikon Coolpix L28 (5/10)
The 20 megapixel Nikon Coolpix has an attractive price tag of Rs 5,950 attached to it but the performance is inefficient. Instead you may want to have a look at the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W710 or Canon PowerShot A2500, which are priced almost the same.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 770 AMP Edition (7/10)
ZOTAC’s GTX 770 offers all the features of last year’s flagship with added performance for a smaller hit on your wallet. This value for money product has a custom cooler design that is a lot quieter and dispenses hot air directly outside the chassis.

Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra (6/10)
Apart from the good looks and build quality, there’s nothing else about the One Touch that really stands out. The display produces good colours, but the sensitivity of the screen should have been better. Besides several minor issues and niggles, the lack of a standard headphone jack is also a deal breaker.

WickedLeak Wammy Desire 2 (7/10)
The Wammy Desire 2 is a big upgrade to the older sibling, the Wammy Desire, with a faster processor and a better IPS display panel. Though WickedLeak has refreshed the design, the Wammy Desire came across more tough and rugged.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 (6.5/10)
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300 is the most affordable super-zoom digital camera with 50x optical zoom. But that doesn’t mean it offers best value for money. A lot of features are missing such as hot-shoe for external flash, RAW support, fully articulating LCD monitor, eye sensor for EVF and GPS.

Epson EH-TW550 3D Projector (7.5/10)
The Epson EH-TW550 may not have the brilliant colour and black-level performance of expensive DLP projectors but it's just as good, if not better, than that of 42" flat-panel TVs costing that sort of money. The projector may not be full HD, but it's still a great means to have a large screen gaming and cinema experience without breaking the bank.

Creative HS660i2 Earphone (8/10)
The Creative HS660i2 is a mid-end IEM sporting brilliant tonal balance that allows it to sound well with almost any genre of music.  It's comfortable and keeps ambient noise at bay well enough to be used in noisy Mumbai traffic. Apart from some serious built-quality and compatibility issues, it is one of the rare IEMs that delivers great quantity and quality of bass, without compromising on mids and high-frequency detail.

Seagate Central 4TB (6/10)
The Seagate Central is an easy and simple solution to organise and access all your digital files on one single location on the network. It allows creating private user accounts and access their data from anywhere on the Internet too. It is a useful device to those looking for a small, super-simple, multi-user backup and media sharing storage.
