About Us

Have you ever wanted to buy computer accessories or electronic accessories and been stumped about which product is best? Or, worse, bought a product only to learn later that you didn’t buy the right one for your needs? I have, and that is why I started AccessoriesReview.

The AccessoriesReview mission is simple: to create the world’s best consumer product reviews.

We believe the world’s best accessories reviews are the ones that help you select the right products for your specific needs, budget, and interests.

Our secret sauce is side-by-side comparative reviews.

Here’s how it works:

  1. We select the top products in each category.
  1. We buy the products we review ourselves, at retail just like you, to help assure complete objectivity and independence in our ratings. We will not accept free evaluation units from manufacturers.
  1. Our Review Editors put the products through detailed side-by-side tests, both in the lab and in the field, and carefully assess performance, ease of use, and reliability.
  1. We rank the products, explain why, and give awards to the best.

AccessoriesReview is reader-supported. When you click on links to buy products we may earn money to support our work.

Your support helps us test more products and stay ad-free.

Our review process starts with selection: we look at hundreds of products to determine the top contenders in each category. We then buy the top contenders for detailed hands-on testing.

To provide a fair basis for scoring, we develop a set of objective lab tests for each category that will help us quantify important differences between competing products.

In addition, we put products through real-world field tests where we use and abuse them to see how they hold up to the competition. Our Review Editors come from a science and engineering background, from top schools such as MIT, UC Berkeley, Princeton, and Oxford. Our team brings a thoughtful approach to each review, and the rigor of scientific and engineering standards to product testing and rating.

In the end, our mission is to help you find the best product for your situation, keeping in mind that each person’s needs are unique. To achieve that goal we publish the scores of each product relative to its competition, both overall and across important attributes for each category. That means you can find the one that best meets your individual needs.

Our reviews should provide the information you need to select the right accessories for your budget and needs, enabling you to buy with confidence.

Our review process takes a lot more work than the typical gear reviews you find online. But we strongly believe that the best gear reviews are those that objectively compare and contrast. When we read reviews, it’s not enough just to know if the reviewer liked or disliked the product. We want to know how it stacks up against all the other top products out there, and why one product may be better than another. It’s the rigorous style of comparing and contrasting through objective tests pioneered by Consumer Reports magazine that we aim to bring to the tech community.
