User reviews of Consumer Reports

    Average Consumer

    The average consumer needs a consumer advocate like Consumer Reports; otherwise we are flying blind when it comes to making purchases, large and small. Consumer Reports takes the ‘guess’ out guesswork. They do rigorous testing, research, and thousands of surveys for you. All one has to do is read over the literature to make an informed and objective decision; with great confidence. The is no worse feeling than being taken advantage of and being duped by corporate malfeasance. This is no longer the case for me as an avid CR reader. I buy all of my friends and family subscriptions to the magazine and to the online services as holiday gifts. It is the greatest gift of all, I am told, and is used all year around. CR now covers the entire gamut of every conceivable purchasing decision: from food to health care plans, to stores and services to automobiles. Knowledge is indeed power and CR, rightly, empowers the consumer. They cut through all of the clutter and go directly to aiding one in making the right decision every time; to me this is priceless! CR subscribers becomes discerning consumers and come to recognize the brands which deliver the highest quality and at the best prices. They are also the first to tell you when things change in the wrong direction. They have changed my life and I will never be able to say enough nice things about them.

    Consumer Reports

    I have used CR since I was in college in the 1960’s. I take the magazine as well as on line and I love both. The magazine is great to read because it has articles I probably would not have searched for on line. I read from cover to cover. Both are indispensable for doing a much better job of purchasing just about everything cars, used cars, yard equipment, even many smaller items like toilet paper. It is a big time saver. I hate buying something that after I get it home it doesn’t work. Some places make it a hassle to return except Costco who makes returning easy and pleasant. The subscription pays for its self in money and time. CR is the best publication and service and lessons how to shop and look for or to watch out for. Your organization gets my very top Recommendations !!! Thank you for years of help.

    KitchenAid French door Refrigerator

    I purchased all KitchenAid appliances for my new kitchen in 2017. About a year later, I started having condensation in the back so much so that I could not close the middle slide out tray. I had the extended warranty by Via and they have been out to repair over five times. They fix the condensation but then the ice maker doesn’t work. Via keeps coming out and replacing the control panel but it never fixes the problem. Now the refrigerator doesn’t even cool or maintain temps. When I call KitchenAid, they don’t even pick up the phone. It is frustrating but one thing for sure, I will NEVER buy KitchenAid products ever again.

    Right Unbiased/Non-Sponsored Information

    Looking for a dishwasher and the information found on CR is incredible. It (the info) provides you with the peace-of-mind that you are making the correct buying decision. No more guess work, no more “trusting” the sales person or even word of mouth. The data doesn’t lie! The best part is we actually went with a cheaper better performing model so we saved money and being that the dishwasher is energy and water efficient it will continue saving us money every month on our utilities. Impressed! Not sure I will make a buying decision without consulting the data contains herein at CR!

    Great mattress

    We have had our Tuft and Needle mattresses , twin XL, for a little over a year. My wife and I both love them. We are using them on Silvana adjustable bases. I particularly liked the idea that we were able try the mattress out in the T & N store in Seattle before we bought something. The mattresses were purchased in the showroom and delivered by FedEx. Delivery was quick. The mattresses are firm but the top layer is soft enough to cushion my hips while on my side( large overweight man) sleeping. I do find that elevating the foot section of the bed puts more weight on my thighs and less on my hips. We highly recommend Tuft & Needle mattresses.
