…and that’s about it. One will note these are both very specific and very narrow catagories, mostly due to both my personal interests, chosen vocation, and life as a renter (so home improvement wasn’t much of a thing). But if I were to search for say, car reviews, home improvement stuff, book reviews, etc - I wouldn’t really be able to know for sure if the site I was on really was an authority or not on any of these subjects. And I wager I am not alone in that regard.
So, over to you! What site(s) out there do you consider to be an authority on product reviews, and for what categories?
Amazon 1 and 2 star reviews are the only reliable thing on the internet. I find most complaints on good items are people who either didn’t read the product description or have very specific use cases.
If it’s not a good item, those reviews will tell you right away.
Yeah if I’m searching for a product I’ll usually check Wirecutter first, then I’ll try including reddit on Google searches… sometimes I’ll search YouTube to see someone actually using it. I’ll check Amazon reviews… sometimes a person will write a really long review (good or bad) and that’s often helpful.
