alaTest helps take guess work out of shopping. Our goal is to make it easy for anyone to be a well informed shopper.
There are a lot of products out there, and we understand how overwhelming it can be to figure out what brand, what model, what version, and what price would be right for you. We want to help answer these questions, and our quality comparison engine does just that.
Using the alaTest website won't cost you a penny.
alaTest doesn't have any stake in the products reviewed on our site, so you can count on us to be independent and unbiased.
We handle all of the hard work for you, collecting reviews, picking out the key points, and making it easy to compare products.
Collecting reviews is only one half of the puzzle. We wouldn't be very helpful if all we had to offer was a clump of product reviews that you had to sort through yourself. That's exactly why we came up with alaScoreTM.
We collect thousands of reviews from all over the world - both online and offline. Because our reviews come from so many different sources, test criteria and rating scales can vary greatly, so we carefully combine all of the reviews into a simple, objective, quality rating called alaScoreTM.
alaScoreTM is a complex algorithm that measures product reviews for their relevance, accuracy, and reliability and then weights them accordingly before combining them into a single result. If you'd like to dive deeper into the inner workings of alaScoreTM, head over to our Help section for more info.
