Useful Websites for Consumer Shopping Research

Here are some websites that might be helpful for your  Consumer Shopping Research Project:


Consumer Reports is an expert, independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to work for a fair, just, and safe marketplace for all consumers and to empower consumers to protect themselves. The organization was founded in 1936 when advertising first flooded the mass media. Since then Consumer Reports has filled that vacuum with a broad range of consumer information. To maintain its independence and impartiality, Consumer Reports accepts no outside advertising and no free samples and employs several hundred mystery shoppers and technical experts to buy and test the products it evaluates.

For each product category, ConsumerSearch provides the following information:

  • Best Reviewed: Our selection of the top-rated products, based on expert and user reviews
  • Full Report: Our complete analysis of who the experts are and what they say, as well as our review of important product trends and developments
  • Our Sources: Our ranking and description of the top reviews, complete with links

 For technology reviews!

Buyers of computing and consumer electronic products turn to as the trusted online brand for labs-based product reviews, tech news, buying guides, market-leading opinion, proprietary downloads, special features, and much more. Our visitors use this information to make informed purchasing decisions, and to advise others on purchasing a wide range of products from laptops and tablets to printers, smart-phones and digital cameras.

CNET is my first stop for tech-related products.
