Are These The 475 Best Products Of The Year?

From drop testing to stain removal, the tests conducted by Consumer Reports for their annual buyer's guide have yielded an array of predictable brands and popular products. That shouldn't be a huge surprise in that quality and durability tend to drive consumer satisfaction, which is the bedrock of strong brands.

But before you start adding these items to your bridal registry or birthday wish list, keep in mind Consumer Reports notes,"The whopping bill [for these products] was $4.1 million: $1.6 million for products and $2.5 million for cars." 

So, do you agree with Consumer Reports these are the cream of the crop in electronics, applicances and automobiles? What don't you see on this list?
