    My Denon x3400. So much improvement, even going just one notch up from my previous amp.

    Oops, wasn't released in 2018. Well, I bought it in 2018, so tough.

    The influx of cheap (or relatively much cheaper than before) 4k projectors. This has really reduced the barrier of entry and I got an Optoma UHD40 which looks stunning.

    Think rather than best tech , you should have asked best tech for the money , because I can't think of a single one that I didn't think was overpriced this year .

    Second Gen Ryzen.

    This has made intel step up its game and made budget PC builders have a good CPU to put in there system

    The Moto G6 Plus. It's the only decent budget phone I've been able to find from a well-known manufacturer that isn't moving towards the ridiculously high spec (like OnePlus) and therefore remains affordable.

    Re: QOTW: What was the best tech product of 2018?

    Even though I bought all brand new components for a new gaming rig, the best thing is the pair of Adam T5V studio monitors I got to go with it.

    The sound they produce is exceptional.

    Probably my Ryzen 5 2400G, although not the most powerful, it runs Civilization 6 at maximum settings at 1080p with no drop below 60fps. It manages quite a few Total War games at decent settings too plus other games. The AM4 board allows me to upgrade if need be in future too.
