CNET's top-rated products of 2017We review tons of gadgets at CNET. These are the best of the best.
[MUSIC] These are the top rated products for 2017. We review a lot of gadgets here at Cnet and only a few can claim to be number one in their category. Here are the best of best. The best televisions of 2017 are the LG OLED TVs. Here's what Cnet resident TV guru, David Katzmaier had to say about the LG OLEDC7P. The LG C7 has the best image quality I've ever tested. That's high praise. The C7 is also compatible with both major HDR formats. Dolby vision and HDR10, which means you'll be able to see a more true to life picture. The LG B7 OLED has the same image quality as the C7 but differs cosmetically and has some different audio technology for a little less money than the C7. Unfortunately, we were not able to do a full review of the B7. All i ever mention is go to 2017 VIZIO M-SERIES and the 2017 TCLP SERIES Roku TV. How about a Media Stream with a feed that TV, the best one of 2017 is the ROKU STREAMING STICK +, It's tiny, but don't let that fool you. The Roku comes out 4K and HD Video at a price around $70. It might not have voice controls like the Fire TV, but the remote that comes with the Roku Streaming Stick Plus can control the volume and power on your television. And of course, since this is a Roku device, you have access to tons of apps including VUDU, Amazon, Netflix And pretty much everything except Apple. On to the best headphones, we've got a tie between the Bose QuietComfort 35 II and the Sony WH-1000XM2. Both sound great and offer excellent noise cancelling. The QuietComfort II has an Action button to call up Google assistant Or can act a noise cancellation toggle. The Sony model offers atmospheric pressure optimizing, that should help in airplanes. The Sony WH 1000XM2 gets 30 hours of use. Noise cancellation the QC352 gets around 20. For audio around the house check out the SONOS ONE which picked up editor's choice honors. It also packs Alexa so you can access Amazon's virtual assistant. In 2018 Google Assistant will also be available along with Apple Airplay 2. As Ty Pendlebury put it the Alexa-powered SONOS ONE is the first smart speaker that actually sounds good with music. Let's get to the best laptop and that is a Lenovo Yoga 920. It's a Yoga so it can flex in all kinds of ways. The 920 moved the web cam back to the top of the screen which is a much more flattering angle. The 920 also packed thunderbolt three into its USB C ports. What about phones, the best iPhone of 2017 is the iPhone X. Yep, the best iPhone is the most expensive one but you get what you pay for right? In our tests face ID worked fine, which is reassuring since touch ID was relatively reliable. The cameras are top notch while the top notch on the screen may cause you to shy away from it and last but not least, the top rated Android phone of 2017 is a tie In one corner, we have the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. In the other, we've got the OnePlus 5T. Both feature the new 18 by 9 aspect ratio that is all the rage these days. The OnePlus 5T is one of the best value phones you can get starting at around $500. The Galaxy Note 8 is on the premium side with a price tag of around $950. However, the Note 8 has a few tricks the 5T just doesn't. The Note is water resistant, offers expansion thanks to a micro SD card slot while it's charging, and, of course, the S pen. If money is no object, get the Note 8. But the 5T is a great choice for the price. There are a lot of things we did not get to cover in this video, like other smart home gadgets, appliances, and wearables Go check out our top-rated products of 2017 at cnet.com for more.
