Our goal is to help you find the best product to buy. That means straight to the point recommendations, based on in-depth and data driven reviews.
We buy our own products, test them and then recommend which one is the best to buy. We put all the products we review under the same test bench, so they can be easily comparable.
All our ratings are automatically calculated based on our test measurements. The formula used for the rating calculation can be found when clicking the next to the result. We spend a lot of time comparing the products side-by-side to validate our results. All our test methodology is also on our website so you can confirm the results yourself.
We keep the products that we review until they are discontinued, so we can continually go back and compare them together, to make sure our reviews are still accurate.
How do we make money and how can you support us?
We don't have ads on our website, because we want to stay unbiased (for example, some other review websites have ads from Samsung). Instead, we only make money in two ways:
- From contributions directly from you here, which gives you access to extra features.
- If you buy something that we recommend via our Amazon.com links (like this one). That way, we are aligned with the same goals as you: to find the best product for your needs. Learn more about these links.
Where do the products that we review come from?
Unlike most websites, we do not get our review units directly from the manufacturers. Instead, we buy them on Amazon.com and keep them until they are discontinued, and then resell them used locally. It means our units aren't handpicked by the manufacturers, but actually represent what you would buy yourself.
Why haven't we reviewed _______ yet?
We have a limited throughput, so we need to prioritize which model we test. We prioritize our reviews by the popularity of a model. You can suggest and vote on what we review next here:
