How we review products (and an important disclaimer)

As science journalists, we understand firsthand the importance of delivering trustworthy and reliable information to our readers. This is why we take the process of reviewing products for our buying guides very seriously. Here are the steps we take to ensure that we provide you with the most accurate and comprehensive reviews.



The first step in the review process is to research the product thoroughly. We scour the internet for information about the product, including its features, specifications, and any known issues. We also look for customer reviews to get a sense of how the product performs in real-world situations.



Once we have gathered all the necessary information, we often test the product ourselves. This includes using the product as intended, and sometimes pushing it beyond its limits to see how it performs under stress. We take detailed notes on our experience using the product, including any issues we encounter and any standout features.



After we have thoroughly tested the product, we analyze our notes and compare them to the information we gathered during our research phase. We look for patterns that influence our experience and try to identify any strengths and weaknesses of the product.



If applicable, we compare the product to similar products in the market. We look at how it stacks up against the competition in terms of features, price, and overall value.



Finally, we write the review. We aim to provide a balanced and unbiased assessment of the product, highlighting its strengths and weaknesses. We try to provide as much detail as possible, while still keeping the review concise and easy to read.

Overall, we take the process of reviewing products for our buying guides very seriously. As consumers too, we understand the need for accurate and reliable information when making a smart purchase, and we strive to meet that expectation with every review we publish.
