Tips Mall was inspired by our experience trying to buy quality products. Wading through a myriad of reviews on the web can be daunting and time consuming. We list only high quality top-rated products that have received at least 4 stars or greater by owner reviews. We also scan professional sites, and give our own “top pick” label to those products we feel are exceptional and/or have received exceptional reviews from both owner and professional reviews, and have useful features. For certain products we have done a hands-on review and evaluation.
We believe that listing fewer but uniformly high-quality products serves you better. Like us, you want to buy a product with confidence, but don’t want to spend days doing the research. We offer good comparisons of features as well, so you can quickly scan the models available for the features you want. In addition, we provide targeted articles and buying guides to help you to understand the technical jargon and terms of the items you are interested in purchasing. Many of the technical terms have hotlinks which when clicked on, will bring up a pop-up help screen for that topic. For comparison pages, glossary of terms are provided at the bottom of the page. Tips Mall has provided service to the consumer since 2004.
We believe that consumer user ratings are an unusually good indication of quality, especially if there are a large number of reviews for a particular product. The owner reviews differ from professional reviews in that the owners of these products have a longer time to evaluate the products than the professional reviewers, and can attest to durability, new features, and problems that may occur.
