Consumer report tests are supposedly non biased . They can't test every item but you can trust their reviews on the items tested.

Don't trust all product reviews on Amazon or any retail sites. Some companies pay people to write positive reviews.

This site may help you figure out if the reviews are trusted. (not sure how accurate it is. Give it a test)

You can also access Consumer Reports online for free with a library card.
"I received this product free or discounted in exchange for my 'honest' and 'unbiased' review."

Yeah, we can trust those.

Sweet. A bunch of products which are obsolete, sold out, not available in my region, are only tested for a few hours and thousands of similar categorized manufacturer name/brand products never tested. I trust them with my life. We already have free consumer reports. It's called product reviews. Amazon and every other online retailer offer that free service. Or visit a product specific member forum.

Clicking "I bought this" should give them rep and thumb up the deal.

Nice. Can I access from home or have to go to the library?

My wife used to subscribe to Consumer Reports

I found that I did not like Consumer Reports since they usually do not review the product I'm looking for, only a select few are reviewed.

Also, a few items I bought that they recommended turned out as junk.

Beware of Consumer Report reviews.

Google search "consumer reports library login" and you'll find a few libraries that post their login information.

Depends upon what your library subscribes to. Some allow home access.

They're good for performance, not so much for longevity testing. For example, first they gushed over Tesla, now they suddenly don't recommend them. I also noticed they test cleaning power of detergents but completely ignore how harsh certain ones are on fabric.
