The winners from the 16 categories were revealed online this week, and include Phillips for Best Monitor, and Logitech for Best Mouse. 

For many people, working from the office is likely to be the exception not the norm for many months to come. But working from home isn’t without its problems. How do you know which of the myriad of monitors, printers, keyboards and conferencing headphones really will deliver on their promise to make your working life easier?, say the publishers.

Monica Horridge, editor of Expert Reviews, said: “For many, lockdown has meant going from well-considered office spaces, with fully functioning IT departments and expensive equipment, to hunkering over a tiny laptop screen on the coffee table. When it comes to buying the right equipment to improve your working space, it’s hard to know where to start. That’s where we come in. We’ve tested hundreds of devices for your home setup, finding the very best products to make your life easier and more productive.”
