How we choose ZDNet Australia Editors' Choice products
Every product we review is eligible for an Editors' Choice award. An Editors' Choice award signifies a product that is the best of breed in its category, the standard by which all other similar products will be judged. It's not enough, however, that a product just be better than the competition.
An Editors' Choice product must also change the competitive landscape of its market, whether through innovative features, exceptional value for the price, remarkable ease of use, or a demonstrable boost to users' productivity.
In all categories, we judge a product on the quality and appropriateness of its feature set and whether it offers a good value for its price tag. We evaluate every product for number and severity of bugs as well as the overall ease of setup, configuration, and use. Where appropriate, we also judge whether hardware products are designed to provide correct ergonomics. Certain categories of products are subject to more specific criteria. An Editors' Choice product must demonstrate excellence in most or all of the categories that apply.
