TVGeek Product Research Process

At TVGeek, we strive to offer up-to-date, accurate product information and unprejudiced reviews, based on authentic consumer experiences. We’ve aggregated myriads of customer experiences collected from plenty of online sources to generate reviews of TVs and related media consumption devices. We receive feedback for the reviews each day. Below is an in-depth analysis of our research process, method of data collection and performance rating generation.

Our Data Set

Sources

We make use the below-listed sources to come up with our product ratings:

Forums/Discussion Boards

Nearly 40% of our data is derived from the consumer experiences as well as reviews posted in the online forums. We carry out a detailed search for every product review by analyzing the legitimate threads within various online communities. Then we collect and verify every single post to test its validity and relevance to the research.

Retail Product Pages

Approximately 40% of our data is fetched from validated customer reviews posted online. We also consider major online retailers, including the likes of Flipkart and Amazon. We also consider the brick-and-mortar brands selling TVs and those having a strong online presence. We analyze each review twice to make sure no fake reviews are accepted, and the author has not received any compensation.

Product Review Websites

Almost 30 percent of data we use is obtained from third-party product review websites, based on a brand and model. There exist oodles of fake online review sites, more so in the realm of TV and related products. These site owners receive monetary compensation for highlighting some brands and their devices. To offer the readers accurate information, we evade such sites and focus exclusively on authentic review sites. We rely on the sites that offer unaffiliated, objective information. We also check the individual postings on the top review sites to make sure that the authors have not received any compensation, or they are not associated with any brand.

Publicly Available Information

We do not at all generate performance and customer ratings from marketing claims from product manufacturers and product descriptions. However, these brands offer detailed product specifications along with brand information, and we use those in model and brand profiles. These details include:

  • Country of manufacture
  • Material composition
  • Available sizes
  • Care instructions
  • Product availability, offline and online
  • Shipping and delivery policies
  • Warranty information
  • Return policies
  • Company history

Accuracy

Data accuracy is a big priority for us, and we do a lot of things in our capacity to make sure the information used in the site is updated, accurate, and those reflect consumer experiences. For this reason, we use established parameters for rating the products. We do the below-listed things:

  • We assign every reviewable product-specific baseline for consumer experiences, along with unique sources as per feedback availability. For example, we check for 60 validated customer experiences taken from 4 unique sources. Moreover, no individual source is used to develop over 50% of the reviews gathered by us. If we cannot collect adequate consumer feedback, we usually withhold ratings for a product or a brand until enough data is obtained. This information is displayed in the top section on every review page. We list a number of verified experiences with unique sources, as well as cases of lack of enough data to publish ratings.
  • We analyze every consumer review to make sure it adheres to our standard. Some reviews lack adequate details to ascertain if the author owns a product. To get a place in our database, the reviewer must show that he/she has used the device for 2 weeks minimum. The review must not be older than 6 years. Reviews matching these 2 aspects get placed in our data set, and others are discarded.
  • We validate consumer experience ratings through a full testing team for the sake of accuracy.
