I try to give a fair rating to all the products I review. However, if you think a review is unfair or some information is not correct, don’t hesitate to contact me.


The scale for all product ratings goes from 1 to 10. Here’s what the points mean:

10 out of 10: master piece, a truly awesome product that is significantly better than its competitors in the same price range

8 – 9 out of 10: highly recommended, great product with only minor/negligible flaws

6 – 7 out of 10: recommended, a good product with a few drawbacks

3 – 5 out of 10: average, a mediocre product, generally not recommended

1 – 2 out of 10: unacceptable, keep away from this product


The value rating indicates how good the price/performance ratio of a product is.

10 out of 10: this is a steal! you won’t find another product with the same performance at this price point

8 – 9 out of 10: very good value, definitely worth it

6 – 7 out of 10: the price/performance ratio is just about right

3 – 5 out of 10: rather expensive, slightly overpriced

1 – 2 out of 10: waste of money

A value rating of 6 and above is generally regarded as positive and means the product is well worth the money. The value rating is always based on the acquisition price at the time of the review, i.e. what I paid for my sample.
