You guys ever heard of this website? They're a similar resource, perhaps even a competitor to, Consumer Reports. However, unlike CR, consumersearch.com is still free at this time.

I've known about this site before, but recently, it appears to have undergone a complete face-lift, and the results look good! Also, rather than simply culling information from other sources as they have done in the past, I think the site is starting to step up and conduct their own lab tests as well.

In particular, I was looking in the Health & Beauty section.... Yes, a guy... checking out the Health & Beauty section. Haha, ok, let's move on. Big Grin But you know, I did find some good information about men's electric razors, men's multivitamins, and even toothpaste! Based on what I've read, I think I'm going to try some of their recommendations in the near future.

And to help us frugals out, they will often times make budget recommendations as well as normal recommendations.

Anyway, it's just one of those websites that I think is so good, it bears mentioning.

    Oh good - Colgate Total is the brand that you can always get free at the drug stores! Smile Rated best overall at that site.

    OMGosh the camera I have been anguishing over purchasing is right at the top of their page.

    I'll take this as a good sign. Off to blog my anguish.

    Thanks BA for the site. It looks like it is quite useful. You don't mind if I post about it on my non-sa blog do you? Big Grin

    BA - thanks for noticing the ConsumerSearch.com redesign which launched in November. I'm glad you find our site useful and appreciate you writing about it. Note, though, that we do not actually do our own lab tests. Our editorial process has not changed and we still rely exclusively on other sources, both professional and user-generated.

    Wow, thank you for the comment, Dan!

    My mistake about your own lab tests then. I thought I saw some you may have done, but I thank you for coming on and correcting that!

    ConsumerSearch recently got a redesign, before it looked like we were still in 1999.
