Our scoring system was flawed:
The solution that we have arrived at has multiple parts:
With this change, we're now able to add a new feature that has been requested by a lot of you for a long time: custom ratings. You can try it out here.
You can pick and choose from any of our scored test results, and assign your own weight to the things that you care about. This will produce a table that you can sort based on your own rating. For now, that tool is pretty simple, but we will add more options in the future.
This opens up a lot of possibilities. However, the biggest drawback of this change is the increase in complexity. A lot of you are already overwhelmed by all the info present on our website, which causes analysis paralysis. This won’t help at first, but this change creates a solid foundation for what's coming in the future. In the next few months, we will make a lot of improvements to make your buying decision even easier than it was before.
Also, this places more importance on the accuracy of our measurements. Therefore, in the coming months, we'll continue to improve our testing and retest previously reviewed products. We’ve recently updated a few tests like peak brightness or local dimming, and a few other ones are already planned.
As always, let us know what you think. We wouldn’t be here without your help. We are far from our goal of a perfect review website, so any suggestion can help.
We're also hiring. If you like where we're going, check the job postings here.
