These are the 18 most popular reader picks for April

This month, we saw many HardwareZone readers upgrade their gadgets and accessories, investing in boosting storage capacity with memory cards and SSDs and elevating their audio experience with noise-cancelling earbuds.

Meanwhile, with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom pre-orders started in April, others took the opportunity to switch up (see what we did there?) their Nintendo Switch accessories. And of course, with Hari Raya Puasa celebrations, some readers focused on buying items for the home, from candles to tupperware.

Keep scrolling for 18 items you loved this month. Many of these items are still on sale, so be sure to grab these deals before they disappear.
