The Top 10 Technology Reviews of 2010

This year's most popular product reviews

We reveal the 10 most popular technology product reviews of 2010, and what makes them interesting.

2010 has been a great year in technology. We started at CES looking at multiple variables on the slate or tablet PC, as well as e-book readers and netbooks with multiple screens, and we end the year anticipating the Apple iPad 2 and a plethora of new tablets. It's hard to believe that we hadn't even heard of the Apple iPad a year ago.

There are 5,500 reviews available on PC Advisor, and we publish at least 100 each month. Over the past 12 months 15 million people have visited PC Advisor, vewing 35 million pages. We took a look at which  reviews they looked at most, to see which products were of the most interest to technology fans in 2010. The results make interesting reading.

So here our the Top 10 Most Popular Technology Reviews of 2010
