Our staff regularly reviews technology products, including accessories, software, services and, of course, Windows computers, and tablets. Each year, we thoroughly test hundreds of products and provide our readers with in-depth reviews written by our team of experts.

In an effort to highlight products we like, we've established the Windows Central Best and Recommended awards. Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming to read long, detailed reviews in pursuit of your perfect device. For that reason, we've done most of the hard work for you. We live and breathe Microsoft and Xbox, so we know good stuff when we see it.

When you see the seal associated with being a Windows Central Best winner, you can trust that our staff has identified this product as the absolute best of the best in a product category. When you see the seal associated with being a Windows Central Recommended winner, you can feel confident that the product has been tested and is recommended by our knowledgeable staff.

We don't take these awards lightly either. We know that you rely on us to help you make an informed decision when it comes to tech — and Windows in particular — and we absolutely use these products as you would, so we can separate the best from the rest, and only those that are truly worthy receive our awards.
