The 44 Gadgets That Defined 2019

CNET names the year's top tech products

A ton of new tech came flying at us again in 2019. But weeding out the minor upgrades and the products that aren't ready for prime time from the stuff that's actually worth your hard-earned money is what CNET's all about. Our team kicked the tires on a lot of new products, and a bunch of those ended up in our roundups of the most interesting things. But only the most significant ones got a full review from our writers, editors and tech experts. And of those, only the cream of the crop earned our editors' choice. 

For 2019, we named 44 products as editors' choice winners. These are the ones we recommend as the best products for the most users. In all the most important categories in tech, we've worked hard to give you clear buying advice by designating a best product to buy. In some categories, we picked a best budget product and a best high-end product. In a handful of categories, we picked more than one product, because there were a couple of outstanding choices. And if there was no product we felt comfortable recommending in a category, then we didn't make a pick.

So let's break down these 2019 editors' choice selections by the five big categories in consumer tech, including a nod to our top picks in each one. And, for those of you who are more visual, you can also flip through all of the picks in a CNET photo gallery.
