p. For over 10 years, Reviewed.com has put thousands of products to the test, all for the sake of the informed purchase. While that old dusty platitude “a fool and his money are soon parted” may seem rather hackneyed, we all work to turn that fool into an educated buyer. Not that we, dear reader, presume to call you a fool. Quite the contrary, for you had the good sense to consult us before accidentally burning $1700 on an boat-anchor or paperweight. Here’s what we’ve been up to.

Pentax K-30 DSLR Camera

PENTAX_K-30_REVIEW_VANITY-small.jpg
When you’re 500 feet up a 5.10 face, you’ll want a weather-proof witness to do your situation some serious justice. With the image quality similar to the Canon T3i and Nikon D5100, the Pentax K-30 has the weather-proofing to ensure you’ll get photographic evidence of whatever happens in the dust or rain. Just don’t be so extreme that this turns into “K-30: The Widowmaker.” Because no profile pic is worth that much.

Toshiba 50L2200U TV

Today’s exciting technology has made it commonplace for televisions to have internet and 3D capabilities, in addition to a massive screen. But for the traditionalists who wouldn’t be caught dead in 3D glasses and don’t need no interwebs on their idiot-boxes, it’s possible to hang fifty inches of excellent picture quality on your wall for just $700. And even if you like 3D, this Toshiba will make you question if that extra dimension is really worth twice as much.

Great Noise-Cancelling Headphones for Air Travel

If you’re heading across the country or the pond for an August vacation, chances are you’ll be listening to an iPod or watching whatever critically panned film the airline plays for your viewing pleasure. If you value your hearing, sanity, and happiness, you won’t use whatever made-to-break earbuds the airline provides. We have a few noise-cancelling headphone recommendations to combat the discomforts of flying.

Jenn-Air JDRP430W Oven

The hottest item on this list (sorry), this Jenn-Air oven offers high-performance, dual-fuel cooking, but weighs in at over 400 pounds. This setup features the precision of gas burners with the consistency of an electric oven, giving the best-of-both worlds. With a new take on a classic look, the only way to make this beauty could look more ostentatious would be to paint it gold. This Cadillac of ovens costs over $4,000—or just $10 per pound, if that makes you feel better.

Tremendous TVs

In this breakdown of  enormous luxury TVs, we’ve aggregated some of the most expensive and large televisions for your drooling pleasure, even calculating the price per square foot. If you’ve always wanted to say “I don’t always watch TV, but when I do, I prefer something huge,” this roundup is for you. Ranging all the way up to a monster set with a 12.5-foot diagonal measurement, let’s just hope these machines never become self aware.
