'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

I've shopped through countless multi-functional power strips over the past few weeks, but none are as good as this 6-in-1 option from Baseus. It supports 65W output via USB-C, a USB-A port, an additional 3-prong plug, and a second extendable USB-C cable. Better yet, the power plug has an angled design to lay flush against walls.

  • Current price: $119
  • Original price: $139

Much like the popular Elgato Stream Deck, this alternative from Cololight serves as a control hub for your computer and various smart home gadgets, with a satisfying rotary knob and several mappable keys to customize with.

  • Current price: $15
  • Original price: $30

Spigen is one of my go-to phone accessory brands, and it's designed a clever way to give phones the ability to connect with Apple's MagSafe-certified products. With the Ring Plate attached, any device, including Android, instantly becomes MagSafe-ready. You can buy one for 50% off right now.

Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days sales event happened on October 10 and 11.

How did we choose these Amazon Prime Day deals?

ZDNET only writes about deals we want to buy -- devices and products we desire, need, or would recommend. Our experts also use established price comparison tools and trackers to determine whether the deal is actually on sale and how frequently it drops. 

We also looked over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the deals we're recommending. Our recommendations may be based on our own testing -- in addition to extensive research and comparison shopping. The goal is to deliver the most accurate advice to help you shop smarter.
