Tom's Hardware Reader's Choice Awards and Sweepstakes

As 2013 draws to a close, we're looking back on all of the best gear we've seen over the last 12 months. Our list of favorites covers everything from monitors and motherboards to storage and graphics. You're probably used to seeing our 'Tom's Hardware Smart Buy' or 'Tom's Hardware Approved' badges at the end of round ups and reviews, but we want you to pick the top components for 2013.

Last week we launched the Tom's Hardware Reader's Choice Awards. These awards give our loyal and much valued readers the opportunity to voice their opinions on 2013's best hardware and win some wicked prizes in the process. We originally planned to accept votes from December 8 until December 16. However, over the last week, there's been a lot of questions about the voting process (including who is eligible to vote), so we figured why not extend the voting period to give everyone a chance to submit their ballot.

Today, we're extending the voting period through to Sunday, December 22. That gives you an extra six days to submit your vote! To be clear, those casting votes from the USA will be entered into a sweepstakes with a list of prizes that includes ThinkPads, a Canon EOS Rebel SL1 camera, an HP Chromebook, a Nexus 7 (all from Newegg), as well as a Thermaltake peripherals, SanDisk DDSs, ASRock motherboards, Cooler Master cases and PSUs and much, much more. If you're outside of the USA, unfortunately, for legal reasons, we can't include you in the sweepstakes, but your vote in the Readers' Choice Awards will still be counted so be sure to take part!

Check out all the products in the running for the Tom's Hardware 2013 Readers' Choice Awards. You can head on over here for the entry form to submit your vote. You have until 12/22/2013 9 pm PST to do so. Good luck, and thanks for voting!!

    Thanks Jane. Is there a way Tom's to implement "you already voted" for these, or is that already built in?

    I can never remember if I gave my input previously when these are reposted, but I don't want to sign up twice and have both answers discarded. :(

    You're not tricking me into voting twice and invalidating my entry!

    If Jennifer's mom makes $68/hour but also makes $20431 a month, how many hours a day did she work? - this is how I entertain myself with spammer...

    Not many products on that list I'd buy. When I saw there was only three products I'd even vote for, and you asked for too much personal info (what do you need my phone# for? etc?), so I said forget it ;) No cpus, no 780ti (how can a 290x that is hot, loud, throttling all day currently etc get in? and it's $600 now not $550+out of stock everywhere). Why is 780ti excluded? No APU or CPU? Someone needs to do a better job with the listed parts. IF you're only listing stuff tomshardware has given awards to, then I'm merely voting for what you think, not a readers choice awards. AMD's 290x certainly wouldn't be on my list, and I wouldn't have 10 motherboards without a single cpu on the list. I'm not saying you need to remove things, but you definitely need to ADD some stuff to many categories.
