In-Hand Tests

Nothing beats first-hand experience with products, which is why we test as many products as possible in-hand before featuring them on our site.

Market Research

We scour the web for thousands of reviews of products to build a wider picture of its overall performance. 

10-Hour Rule

To ensure we spend enough time with a product to get a clear picture of its qualities, we spend a minimum of 10 hours with it and ensure the entire team gets to test it for more opinions.
