Awards We Give

CNET provides expert editorial advice for choosing what products to buy, where to buy them, and how to get the most from them. CNET's editorial endorsements are an important part of how we help people select the right products.

CNET Editors' Choice

The CNET product reviews team recognizes tech and consumer electronics of the highest quality, design, and performance with its CNET Editors' Choice award. It's the seal of approval people look for when shopping for gadgets.

Products bearing the CNET Editors' Choice graphic have been rigorously tested and carefully evaluated by our expert editors. The award is the hallmark of good product performance and value, and it signifies a product that is the best of breed in its category.

An Editors' Choice product must change the competitive landscape, whether through innovative features, exceptional value for the price, remarkable ease of use, or a demonstrable boost to users' productivity.

Products reviewed on CNET and available to the general public are eligible for an Editors' Choice award. See a full list of products that have won a CNET Editors' Choice award.

Industry Events

CNET kicks off the year covering the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) like no other. Our videos, blogs, and podcasts produced live from the ground at CES are second to none, and our readers know it.

At the Mobile World Congress show each spring, we award the top mobile products as determined by CNET editors.
