Our Ranking Criteria

In short, we do the research for you. You probably don't have time to read through reviews of top 40 products. We go through reviews for you, and try to paint a decent picture of your best options. We rank the products based on 4 weighted criteria:
  • customer reviews [30%] - how customers rated this product? Literally, the higher, the better.
  • popularity [30%] - how many people seem to buy this product compared to other options.
  • brand trustworthiness [15%] - the more other high-rated products by this brand, the more trustworthy we consider the vendor
  • value for money [25%] - adjust the above for price. If there is a better option for lower price, product is ranked higher.

What about the price?

Price only accounts for 25% of the score because price is a tricky thing. It boils down to your individual preference - do you want to go higher-end or budget?

Ideally, we try to recommend better-featured items that have a lower price and high customer score, but in most cases you can't espace the fact that extra features/quality cost extra money.

Please take a look at the price chart for dot matrix printers to see the best picks in each budget.
