ConsumerReports.org features ratings and recommendations of thousands of products and services. In addition to the ratings and reviews in the monthly print version, the online subscription offers more frequent updates, video clips, consumer user reviews, and a shop online feature.
It is an easy way to get good unbiased expert, independent reviews of electronic products and services. I used it recently for car and laptop reviews
You should be able to access most parts of the website through your local Library access. Yet another great use of my Memorial Hall Library card : http://www.mhl.org/resources/databases.htm#25
As a library user I have access to reviews, ratings, expert buying advice, product comparisons, consumer user reviews and product video clips. It also features reliability data, product specs, recommendations. I cannot post to the forums or access the “subscriber only” forums using the library account. Its a very easy way to zoom down to the product you would like to use.
