At just $70 with 4K HDR video, more apps than any competitors and a new remote that can control your TV, the Plus is the best streamer for most people. That's why we awarded it a five-star rating and an enthusiastic CNET Editors' Choice.
"Cheap" no longer needs to mean "nasty." Not only is the Vizio SB3621 one of the best sound bars we've seen in 2017, but -- at $150 in the US -- it's also the cheapest. That's why astounding value racked up a five-star rating and an Editors' Choice.
In addition to being the best-sounding Alexa-compatible speaker we've heard yet, the Sonos One will be adding support for Google Assistant and Apple AirPlay 2 in 2018. That makes it as close to a universal smart speaker as we've seen yet, and earns it an Editors' Choice.
It's not cheap, and it lacks the "smarts" of Alexa or Google Assistant that's now de rigeur for home speakers. But the easily portable Bose SoundLink Revolve+ is arguably the best-sounding wireless speaker of its size.
With its expansive 6.3-inch screen, smart S Pen stylus that's packed with productivity tools and dual-rear cameras, the 8 fully redeems the Note name. It's the best overall Android phone of the year if price is no object.
Though it features the same sleek design and water resistance, the Galaxy S8 Plus improves on the already stellar Galaxy S8 -- tacking on a larger 6.2-inch screen and a bigger battery that lasts ultra long.
The old-school iPhone 8 Plus has the same speed and nearly the same cameras as X, at a slightly lower price. Its battery is also a bit better, and the standard home button appeals to traditionalists who aren't quite ready for Face ID.

As Samsung's marquee phone of the year, the Galaxy S8 doesn't disappoint. Along with a beautiful design, it serves up water resistance, a long-lasting battery that can wireless charge and expandable memory.
The Plus, meanwhile, features the same sleek design and water resistance, but tacks on a larger 6.2-inch screen and a bigger battery that lasts ultra long.
Not only is the Pixel 2 water-resistant, but it has the best camera on any Android phone. Plus, its Google Lens software feature lets you look up more info about the world around you. And the pure Android operating system means you always have the latest OS and security updates.
The Motorola Moto G5 Plus has a near stock version of Android Nougat, a good camera, a metal build, and a fingerprint sensor with trackpad-like shortcuts -- all for about $230 in the US. That's why it's our Editors' Choice budget phone.
The Phantom 4 Pro is loaded with all of DJI's latest tech like sensors all around its body to avoid collisions, whether you're actively piloting it or it's flying on its own. Add in a new camera with a large 1-inch image sensor for capturing more detail even in low light and you've got one amazing quad for the money.
This modern-looking French door fridge is an exceptional performer with a thoughtful, refined design. An auto-filling water pitcher inside the door is a terrific addition to an already strong set of features.

Lenovo already had an excellent two-in-one with the Yoga 910, but by addressing its few weaknesses and adding new eighth-gen Intel Core i-series processors, the Yoga 920 instantly became the best hybrid we tested in 2017.
Dell's XPS 13 for 2017 is still the world's smallest 13.3-inch laptop, it's just that now it has eighth-gen Intel processors paired with Dell technologies for a big performance boost and longer battery life (more than 12 hours in our tests).
A Chromebook nearly without compromises, and at a very reasonable price, the Samsung Chromebook Pro sports a stylus pen, 360-degree hybrid hinge and support for many of the apps in the Google Play Store.
It might look the same as the Hero5 Black, but inside is GoPro's custom-designed processor, the GP1, that's responsible for a whole lot of improvements to photo and video quality and remarkably good electronic image stabilization. It's an easy pick as the Editors' Choice action camera for 2017.
The SNES Classic is the perfect sampling of the SNES' impressive library and a testament to how well its games have aged. The $80 package also includes two controllers, so consider yourself lucky if you're able to score one.
We never formally reviewed Movies Anywhere. But the free service -- which cross pollinates most movies purchased on iTunes, Vudu, Amazon and Google Play so they're available, well, anywhere -- has opened up plenty of new options when streaming.
