About Us

It’s simple, we help people.

Have you ever wanted to buy a product 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 Best Wiki.

The Best Wiki mission is simple, we help people: to create the world’s best product reviews.

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

Here’s how it works:

  1. We select the top products in each category.
  2. We buy the part of 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.
  3. 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.
  4. We rank the products, explain why, and give awards to the best.
  5. After our testing and reviews are finished, we will donate these products to charity

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

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.

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.

You’ll find that our Best Overall award goes to those products we believe are the very best overall, and you’ll learn why we selected them by reading our detailed reviews.

Our Best Pick award goes to those products that stand out for specific applications, and our review will explain the details of why and what for.

Our Best Value award goes to quality products that offer the most bang-for-the-buck.

Our reviews should provide the information you need to select the right gear 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 product 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.
