CNET’s Editors’ Choice Awards: Best Products and Services for 2023

For more than two decades, CNET’s editors have rummaged, prodded, tested, retested, intentionally dropped, and even stayed up all night evaluating new products and services that promise to change the way we live and work.

CNET Editors' Choice Award badge

Our new Editors’ Choice badge.


In 2022, our team of experts found 81 products and services in seven categories that we believe are worth celebrating and, more importantly, worth honoring with a CNET Editors’ Choice Award.

From the smartphones, laptops and tablets that we use every day to stay connected to the routers, monitors and other practical devices that keep our digital ecosystems running, we continue to rely on technology to make sure we communicate and collaborate as easily and effectively as we can.

We’ve also dug deep to find the best TVs, Bluetooth speakers, kitchen appliances, robot vacuums, software and online services, including VPNs to keep your data and language apps private while many of you are traveling again. .

The result of all this work has resulted in our picks for the CNET Editors’ Choice Awards, which this year we’re honoring with a new badge that we’ll use to identify highlights in our reviews, best lists, product comparisons, and other stories about our site.

Our mission, as always, is to help you navigate our ever-changing world, whether you’re looking for top-of-the-line gear or more affordable options. And we back up those choices with extensive tips, explanations, and how-to guides. Keep in mind that these products and services were rated in 2022 to help you decide what gear to add to your life in 2023.

On another note: In terms of innovation, 2022 was a modest year overall, with an emphasis on evolving products to make them better rather than blowing up new categories.

Even so, we were happy to find four products that we felt pushed the envelope and were worthy of another CNET accolade: our Innovation Award, which recognizes technology that brings new and noteworthy ideas to market. Check out our list below.

We’re happy to continue CNET’s tradition of rewarding products that offer the best combination of performance, design and value. We’d love to hear about your favourites, too. Find CNET on your favorite social media channel and tell us what you think.
