What if the information about a product is incorrect?
Please contact us if you notice any mistakes, duplicates, or omissions on the site. We will do our best to address these situations immediately.
What do the star ratings mean?
When completing a review, reviewers are given the option to provide a star rating from 1 to 5 for a variety of aspects regarding each product. 1 is the lowest score possible and 5 is the highest. This is an easy way for users to get a sense of the quality of each product and compare in a simple way.
Are manufacturers involved with the content on the site?
We invite manufacturers to add their products and ensure the specifications provided are correct, engage with our community in an authentic way, and invite their customers to provide reviews on the site. That is the extent of their involvement with the content on the site. All reviews are completely independent and cannot be modified or affected by manufacturers.
