So the all-singing, all-dancing gadget marathon that is CES 2013 is drawing to a close - find out about some of the most headline-grabbing tech right here.
Stuff Magazine and CNET have weighed in with their own picks of CES 2013 - and a lot of them are products that have already been all over TechTalk.
Stuff sent a crack squad of tech addicts to Sin City to find the best gear, and among their chosen haul is the Nvidia Project Shield handheld games console, curved OLEDs from Samsung and LG, the Jongo wireless speaker and a bath-proof phone from Sony. The Project Shield quad core portable games console has been getting lots of attention at CES. The handheld Andriod gaming machine will revolutionise your daily commute with its Tegra 4 processor and touchscreen, with the Shield able to connect to the cloud to play Android games.
Stuff said: "Nvidia has managed to cram a Tegra 4 processor and a 5in 720p touchscreen into a single handheld controller to create a powerful yet portable Android gaming machine."
We've already written about the OLED and the Jongo, but just to recap for those who weren't listening at the back - the OLED's curved screen offers more viewing angles and a more realistic, grand experience, while the Jongo offers WiFi multiroom music with ease.
Over at CNET, the Lenovo table PC, Razer's new Edge gaming tablet and the Samsung 85-inch UHD S9 were among the gadgets bestowed with maximum respect. The Razer Edge is a Win8 tablet geared for gaming, meaning you can have a bash on your favourite fully fledged PC games while you're travelling into work on the train.
It's no surprise to see Lenovo's 27-inch touchscreen tabletop PC on CNET's list of the best of 2013. The Windows 8 IdeaCentre Horizon has been garnering serious column inches since it was unveiled on Sunday and we were among those lucky enough to get a private viewing at Lenovo's CES HQ (see our video here). It looks like a giant tablet and lies flat on the tabletop. It's designed for families and friends to play games and browse the web together but it can also be stood up to work as an all-in-one PC.
Another winner that was expected is the Samsung UHD S9 TV. Ultra HD, or 4K, has been the buzzword of CES 2013, and this 85inch set really showcases the technology, while a new floating frame shows Samsung is as innovative in design as it is in tech.
There were literally thousands of great gadgets making their debuton the Strip, check out a few of our other favourites by visiting our TechTalk picture galleries.
