As of the end of 2007, these are the gadgets CNET readers desire most.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Welcome to CNET's Top 5 for each time we meet we count down another hot CNET list, I'm Tom Merritt. You know the year's wrapping up and we have one more chance to look at the old most wanted list before we head off into a new year. Remember back in January when netcrap toolbar was number one, no kidding, it seems like forever ago. For the last time this year then let's count down CNET's readers most wanted gadgets. At number 5 the Sony KDL-46XBR4. It's a TV. You may have guessed that from the catchy name. David Katzmaier says it outperformed any other LCD we tested and you liked it too. Coming in at number 4 the Nintendo Wii. The Holidays get closer, the supply get slimmer and your desire grows, as does the size and price of the Wii Bundles. You know, some psych doctoral student could write a thesis on this, probably already have. Up to number 3 the Canon PowerShot SD850 IS. Well, it's not like we didn't plug this thing enough on our Holiday helpdesk marathon, but it really is a great camera and it's been in or near the top 5 for months. Sliding in at number 2 the PlayStation 3, its 66th week in the top 20. It's like the freaking granddaddy of the most wanted list. The price drop certainly didn't hurt interests. Before we get to our most wanted gadget of all, let's look at the gadgets that have been on the most wanted list the most weeks this year. Alright, forget longevity, who's at the top of the heap right now, as we close the books on 2007, going out on top. The number 1 most wanted gadget at CNET is the LG Voyager. Some call it the iPhone for Verizon users, but it's apparently more wantable, touch screen, high-speed data access, top-notch web browser, integrated GPS, and that all total look aspect of a good cell phone, call quality. Congrats LG Voyager, you cute little multi-media phone you and may your successes carry you in to the next you. We'll that's it for this edition of CNET Top 5.
