Are you a gadget lover? Love having the latest technology around your home and in your possession but sometimes unsure what is perfect for you? Founded in September 2011 and moved to join the ever-growing list of New York Times Companies owned in October 2016.
The Wirecutter lists all the best gadgets in one place. Technology, not your forte? More of a homebody, then the Sweethome is the one-stop place for all your household needs.
Just because sites like Wirecutter and Sweethome proclaim to be the best of the best, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the particular product they are shouting at the top of their lungs is the best one for you as like that saying “one man’s junk is another person’s treasure”. Each person like snowflakes is different and unique.
Sites like these are one person’s opinion and it is up to you ideally to make the final decision for what you think is best. That’s why there are billions of review sites out there in the wide world of the web.
Here are some other reputable review sites out there, that can help you in your journey of finding the best items for you and your household.
This is one of the best go-to websites for technology lovers all around the world. This is your one-stop-shop for electronics reviews. The website presents an easy to use and striking interface and keeps users up-to-date with the latest articles and reviews of all electronics. Thinking of moving to Apple from Samsung or the other way going from a Mac to a PC? CNET has all the answers for you to help you make your decision.
CNET also ups the ante and takes it one step further than being known as just another review site in an ocean of websites. It also includes articles that are considered to be informative and great starting points into the world of choosing the electronics that are perfect for your household.
Consumer Reports have been around since 1936 when it took over from Consumer Research which was founded ten years earlier in 1926. Despite its age, Consumer Reports have proved to still be a lot of people’s go-to for any information on what product to purchase. It holds that reputation of longevity and trust.
Despite being an independent non-profit organization as it does have a free basic service out there to customers using their site, they do offer a subscription of $30 per year. This annual subscription allows you to have full access to their website and an in-depth record of their reviews.
As Consumer Reports does hold that trust with customers and anyone that has used their site, most people don’t mind paying the $30 as be honest would you rather buy a product worth the money and pay the extra $30 of joining Consumer Reports or end up buying a product that cost through the roof and ended up breaking the second go and now you are out of pocket and worse off than you were before and to think if you had paid that $30 you might not have ended up in this situation.
Like Consumer Reports, Good Housekeeping goes back even further with the first issue published in May 1885 and is a staple in many American households. Having to keep up with technology and the way of life, Good Housekeeping also branched onto the internet. The Good Housekeeping Institute goal is to make sure they test a wide range of household goods and items, to ensure that they are not only keeping up with the top of the range items but providing to their customers the best options for their households.
Unlike other review sites, Good Housekeeping chooses to talk about the items is not only an informative way but an entertaining way to keep their reviewers’ interest as to Good Housekeeping they wish to connect with their readers on a personal level.
Not quite the level and power as CNET, but Digital Trends comes pretty close to provide to their readership reviews and timely articles of the latest technology that has been released. The thing that stands out for Digital trends is that they try to capture the latest smart technology like Wi-Fi Enabled Barbeques or 360-degree drones.
Just think when your pizza is delivered by a drone, the company would have used a site like Digital Trends to do their research. Digital Trends aims to assist you like an advice column to purchasing your next big piece of technology.
