Top 100 Best Products of 2005

September 30, 2005 - 19:06 Tech

PC World Magazine, released (quite early I would say) the 100 Best Products of 2005. We're talking about IT of course. Actually the top is divided in 10 sections: PCs and Peripherals, Monitors and TVs, Office Software, Digital Photography, Security, Printing and Publishing, Storage and Backup, Mobile Tools, Web and Consumer Electronics.

Is interesting to notice that giants as Yahoo didn't make it in the top 100. It's true the most talked new Yahoo product (or upgraded) is supposed to come this autumn, and I'm talking about the new Yahoo!Mail here, and this is one of the reasons I say it's really early to call it the 2005 top. Also Microsoft has only one presence in the top with its Windows Media Player 10 on the 47th place. Dell is leading, in terms of number of presences, with 6 products among the top 100, followed by Apple with 5 products.

Here is the top 10:

  1. Mozilla Firefox - Web Browser
  2. Google Gmail - Web Mail
  3. Apple Mac OS X Version 10.4 (Tiger) - Operating System
  4. Belkin Wireless Pre-N Router and Notebook Network Card - Wireless Networking
  5. Dell Ultrasharp 2405FPW - 24-Inch Wide-Screen LCD
  6. Alienware Aurora 5500 - Performance PC
  7. Seagate USB 2.0 Pocket Drive - Portable Hard Drive
  8. Skype - VoIP Service
  9. Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT - Digital SLR Camera
  10. PalmOne Treo 650 - PDA Phone

and some extras:

33. The New York Times on the Web - Web Site
