Over 80 outstanding goods and services with enduring appeal are honored each year by our awards.
Over the past 20 years, CNET journalists have tested, retested, dropped, and even stayed up all night to evaluate new products and services that claim to revolutionize our lives and the way we conduct business.
Our panel of experts selected 82 goods and services in seven categories for 2022 that, in our view, are deserving of acclaim and, more importantly, a CNET Editors’ Choice Award.
We continue to rely on technology to ensure that we are communicating and collaborating as quickly and effectively as possible, from the smartphones, laptops, and tablets we use every day to stay in touch to the routers, monitors, and other nuts and bolts equipment that makes our digital ecosystems work.
Because many of you are traveling again, we also did extensive research to find the top televisions, Bluetooth speakers, kitchen appliances, robot vacuums, software, and internet services, including VPNs to safeguard your data privacy and language apps.
Our selections for the CNET Editors’ Choice Awards are the culmination of all that labor, and we’re celebrating them this year with a new badge that we’ll use to recognize those standouts in our reviews, top lists, product comparisons, and other stories throughout our site.
Our goal is to assist you in making sense of our ever-changing world, whether you’re searching for cutting-edge equipment or more inexpensive alternatives. Additionally, we offer thorough how-to manuals, reasons, and recommendations to assist with these choices. Remembering how much these goods and services were worth in 2022 can help you choose the equipment to add to your life in 2023.
In 2022, improving current products over developing whole new markets was the main goal of innovation.
However, we were thrilled to identify four products that, in our opinion, went above and above and merited a special CNET award: our Innovation Award, which honors goods that employ technology to provide novel, innovative ideas to consumers.
It gives us great pleasure to continue CNET’s tradition of recognizing products that strike the perfect balance of value, performance, and design. Please share your personal favorites with us as well. Discover CNET on your preferred social media platform and let us know what you think.
