Company Summary

People waste hours researching products online before buying—15 hours for TVs alone. Reviews take forever to read, search is full of spam and magazines use tech jargon. Our crowdsourced product ranking asks what matters to you, crunches owner ratings and shows you the best. We solve a problem every shopper has. A third of public beta users are spending 14 minutes on the web version, higher than FB's daily average, and 10% click on buy links.
