Olympus Olympus Stylus 1000

 

Olympus's Stylus 1000 ($350 as of February 15, 2007) is one of a handful of weather-resistant digital cameras built for times when things get a little damp. But while the Stylus 1000 is an all-weather model, it's not waterproof, so don't take it...

Water-resistant body ; Useful help system selects settings

LCD is difficult to see in bright light ; Antishake simply boosts the ISO setting

The durable Stylus 1000 is water-resistant and its help system is useful, but its antishake system is unimpressive.

Averatec 1000 Series Notebook: AV1050

 

The 1000 brings to mind the venerable but now discontinued Sony Vaio TR2A and TR3a which received our Editor's Choice award in November 2003. It's similar in size, also features an internal optical drive, bright and glossy display, Intel Centrino...

Good performer by B5 size subnotebook standards. Intel Centrino technology provides both strong performance and good battery runtimes. The Averatec 1000 looks great, really great! Good set of ports, excellent display, relatively roomy keyboard and...

Can't upgrade memory. Keyboard is a little dead, as is the trackpad

An excellent notebook for the price! It fares well against much more expensive competitors such as the Sony T250 and T350. While not ultra-thin it's a gorgeous looking B5 sized notebook in the TR3A tradition and is similar in size to the Fujitsu...

Olympus Olympus Stylus 1000

 

I bought this camera at a great price so I can't complain. It's a nice compact camera with 10MP. I'm not sure why it makes this strange noise though.

small, compact size. Metal casing

Slow to shot and also makes noise. Not sure what the noise is for
