Meet the coveted gongs that we lavish for excellence
The winner of this award may not have the highest overall score in the test, and it may not be the cheapest, but it will always represent especially good performance at its price.
BEST IN TEST
The overall winner in each group test. Scoring highly in all criteria, it will be an excellent all-rounder. Where two or more items achieve equally high scores, it will be the one that has that extra something – a touch of style, a special feature – that takes the prize.
