This page is here to clear up any confusion about how we create the content of this website and what our relationships are with the manufacturers in the industry.  We believe in transparency, and we want to use this page to be as clear as possible with all aspects of our website.

Affiliate Links

In some cases on our reviews you may find “affiliate links.” Essentially what that means is that if you click the link and make a purchase, we will receive a commission. These commissions help us maintain our testing and review operations. This comes at no cost to you whatsoever. It simply means that the origin of the sale is tracked back to our website. We may also provide a coupon for a product that is used to track the source of a sale, for which we are then compensated.

We may also link to general e-commerce sites where we receive an affiliate commission, though we have no direct relationship with the company that manufactures the product (e.g./ we link to the particular product via Amazon.com and receive a commission, though this is purely a relationship with Amazon, and not a relationship with that company).

Our Philosophy

We created this website with a key goal: to help consumers find the right products for their needs. It’s easy to get confused when trying to decide on a product. Liking a certain product is a personal choice that depends on many different factors — there is no one “best” product for everyone. There is a lot of marketing hype in the industry that can lead a lot of people away from making a good choice.

With that in mind, we want to provide information that simplifies the process for you. We break down the key parts of each product, and whom the product might be good for. Opinions on the site are our own and should be treated as opinions, not final verdicts.

Generally, we try to avoid making statements like, “this is the best product,” though you will see ratings for products, sometimes broken down by category. These are subjective scores and rankings, which reflect our own opinions and personal biases. That is because finding the “best” product depends on many different factors and personal preferences. We suggest you use the information on the site as a starting point for your own product selection journey.
