Looking for a new camera, sturdy trash bags or the best dating service? Overwhelmed by choices? Consider ConsumerSearch.com, a website of more than 300 product reviews that consolidate and analyze comments from experts, such as Consumer Reports and Cnet.com, plus user comments posted on the Internet.
"We do the research you would do if you had the time,” says ConsumerSearch managing editor Christine Frietchen. Although the website receives some money from retailers, she adds, the reviews are independent.
The most popular items people want information on are mattresses, vacuum cleaners, TVs, coffeemakers and, depending on the season, lawnmowers or snowblowers. About 10 new reports are added to the site each month.
