What are our sources of information?
Users’ opinion: Our first and major source is people. When we come up with a topic to write on, we always check what people say on forums and in their reviews, what is important to look at, and what their impressions are if they already use a product. By reading hundreds of reviews, we define the most popular and important features to look for in a specific case.
Trusted websites: We never hesitate to check expert opinions as well because no one has all the answers. We get some useful information and general advice from such websites as REI Co-op and Consumer Reports.
Our own expertise: We involve people with experience in writing on and working with optics. This work also includes constant self-education to step up our results.
How we create the articles
Our aim is to gather, review, and rate the best products for a particular purpose. So first, we study the topic and outline the most important features based on user and expert opinions.
After that, we explore the market and select the best-rated products with the above features. To form the compilation and rate the selected devices properly, our writers closely look at each and every aspect of the products and dive into customer reviews again to find out the potential benefits and drawbacks of each. We also include a handy buying guide in each article to specify and describe each feature in more detail.
What is our interest?
Let us be clear: Yes, we receive some commission after each product we recommend is sold. However, this doesn’t mean that the companies that sell these products can influence our decision-making in any way. The thing is, we receive the commission for any product available on such large marketplaces as Optics Planet or Amazon, so we are free to pick the devices we really consider to be the best.
