Our Top 100 Products Award Program was conceived to call special attention to the most significant products introduced each year. We receive more than 1,500 product releases annually and publish nearly 600 of them. We have to choose each month which products have greater interest to the majority of our readers.
In evaluating products for the Top 100 Awards, we look for advances in technology, new product lines, significant improvements to existing products, or a product that increases competition in its field. Also, the highlighted products had to be featured in the magazine between November 2003 and October 2004. Because we narrow down the awards to 100 products, we may not be able to recognize other deserving products in the field.
