review process

Our review process is like no other, and you can rest assured any product that makes it through the review stage and is recommended on our site is worth your hard earned cash. Extensive research and testing of the products can take anywhere between a couple of weeks to a few months because we want to make sure the decisions we make with our team are an honest representation of the product. We achieve this with the help of our experts and using the interviews and information gathered by our team from reliable and prolific sources.

We first browse the internet to get a brief idea as to what people are pleased with. If in any way possible, our team of in-house reviewers puts the product through its paces, testing things such as durability, ease of use, and overall functionality and performance depending on the category and level of product placement. Affordability is also considered and weighed heavily. After the weaker candidates are thrown out, we consult consumers who have used the remaining products to see what they have to say.

If we are unable to personally review the product ourselves, consulting actual customers who have had the chance to use them and form their own opinion is crucial. We’ll contact experts if available, and often request more information from the manufacturers themselves. Most notable brands are relatively straightforward with providing information on any complaints they have received regarding the use of their product, and we take this into consideration as well. This is where we stand out from many other review sites you’ll find browsing through the internet. After thoroughly researching and considering and the feedback we’ve gathered, we then whittle it down to the best of the best in an easy-to read guide.

But our chosen products aren’t high-end or overpriced; we seek out the products that do the best job for what they are worth, finding a balance between price and quality. No item needs hundreds of useless features and add-ons, the sole purpose of which is to increase the price of the item and profit for manufacturers. The items we rank highest fit their purpose for a good price, and conveniently the most loved gadgets are often the ones that are on sale.

Nowadays, a large portion of electrical appliances and gadgets are of high quality, therefore we prioritize balancing cost with useful features, in order to find the best the market has to offer. We believe that whilst opinions on style and aesthetic may vary, there is no doubt that quality is valued above all. This view on technology allows us to make accurate and meaningful evaluations, but we still acknowledge that all people have different needs, which is why we can suggest different sizes and styles of products or even some with specific features for that particular consumer.

We’ve been refining our review process for years now and firmly believe that it’s the most comprehensive, fair, and accurate system out there. Which are confident in our suggestions. If you think we missed something or have an awesome product you’d like us to check out, let us know.
