We want to help you! Our ambition is to bring you the most thorough and comprehensive reviews out there. We test and retest our products so that we can give you true and honest feedback. Our reviews are completely unbiased and unaffected by product price or extra features: if it’s good, it’s good! We are here to help you purchase a product that is the best value for your money.
What We Can Do For You
You’ve been thinking about making a purchase and you want to be sure it’s the quality you want at a price you can afford. Maybe you even need it…yesterday! It’s impossible to read about, test, touch and review every top item out there. Who has that kind of time? Well, we do! That’s where our review team comes in. We spend hours scouring through what’s good and what’s not and bringing you our unbiased results.
How We Know What’s Best
We go above and beyond. It’s easy to compare side-by-side specs and metrics, like comparing apples to apples. But what if there’s a brand or style out there that you don’t know about? What if your time is limited and you’re worried you’ll miss the best thing? Is the site you’re looking at reliable? Again, we’re here to help.
We research websites, speak to experts and even use our own real-world experiences to narrow down the best products. From there we initiate thorough testing to find the best of the best. It is not unusual for us to spend dozens of hours or even days putting products through rigorous testing. We don’t want you to settle with “good enough”, we want you to know you’re getting the best product out there.
We speak to experts and technicians in the field and even directly to customer service at the company whose product we’re reviewing. We take them through our list of questions on functionality, durability, return percentages and we even ask if there are any common problems or complaints. We want you to have all the information.
Our Testing Techniques
Coming up with a definitive Best Of list isn’t always the easiest job out there. It can be a long and tedious process. Not only do we compare apples to apples, but sometimes it’s apples to oranges to peaches to plums. When a product type has many possible variations or additional features, we really have to put on our thinking (and testing!) caps.
Each product is put through real-world testing. We test, record our results, test again, compare results, and this process continues until we are confident we’ve discovered the top products on the market. From here we add in the advice and opinions of both experts and real-life customers and take note of online feedback. We want you to love our results and we work hard to achieve that goal.
Lastly, for the sake of a clear and honest review, we let you know why we might not have chosen a product or why it didn’t make our top cut. We want to be sure you know the ins and outs of our testing and understand how we decide upon our Best Of list.
