The annual PC Pro Service and Reliability Awards were held in London last night, and we can now reveal the winners of the IT industry's most prestigious gongs.
With more than 16,000 people giving feedback on everything from their notebook to their web host, the PC Pro Awards give an unmatched insight into the level of customer service UK technology buyers receive.
In all 12 categories of the Reliability and Service awards, we delve into our readers' experiences to reveal the winners, so that you have 16,000 people to call on when you're next buying a piece of hardware or software.
We also take all the best products and technologies of 2006 and round them up in our Editorial awards. After some intense and heated voting from our 20-plus panel of judges, five are lucky enough to walk away with gongs.
