How Rates Products

Here’s some insight as to how we grade products reviewed on this site.

  • Products are assigned a numeric grade, with 5 being the highest possible grade.
  • A 5 rating represents the product we deem to be the best, in its respective product type. While a 5 rated product may have room to improve, we’ll often still rate the best product a 5 if we view it as:
    • Being better by its competitors by a wide margin.
    • Setting the standard that products in its group should aim to achieve.
  • Products we view as lacking features, benefits, etc below 5 rated products will lose points based off these flaws.

While we do our best to grade products solely on their features and benefit to the consumer, some portions of the reviews and ratings on our site may be a matter of opinion.
