Anchored by the largest tech product review catalog in the world, lightning-fast autosuggestions powered by natural language processing (NLP), artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) get you the results you want.
IMMERSIVE VIDEO: Quickly learn about a product with CNET’s premium video reviews, which accompany nearly all of our reviews (in case you already forgot, there are *thousands* of these).

Along with our signature Good, Bad, Bottom Line, our rating system gives you clear recommendations. CNET saves you time and money by helping you find the right product quickly.
FAST-TRACK PURCHASE: Once you’ve read the review and compared the product to others, you’re just a tap away from purchasing — and at the best price.

This has been an excellent extension to have just discovered. I love CNET I subscribe to the various email publications. The interesting thing is that the Chrome Store wouldn't allow me to add it on as an extention. I had to circumvent the system and get it through a tech site. Another example of their trying to control your options. I find it invaluable it has offers for many catagories and is available for most stores. It's a better app when compared with others that coupons are not valid.

I love CNET, and I like the app. However, there is a problem with the video player where the sound sometimes goes in and out and in and out (like you are hitting mute over and over again). I haven't pinpointed exactly when it happens versus when it works as intended, but it also starts a video up again even when you have paused the video. It happens so much that I RARELY watch the videos and just read the reviews/articles.

Hi Scott, thank you for your feedback and for letting us know this is happening. Could you email us at with more information on the videos you noticed this happens on?

When asked for my interests, Apple was not a choice I made (nor anything to do with stimulus checks/politics, I get that elsewhere, thank you). When my results popped up, it was stimulus checks and Apple. Also, I would do the videos, because I just like to read, and it would mysteriously start up again half way through the article. I'll stick with their website, though even there I'm forced to turn off videos. Too bad, I used to enjoy CNET so much more.
