We moved where you can read about the information about our team.
You can read more about our Founder Dusan here and our Chief Editor Lawrence here.
Our Mission Statement
Everybody has wasted time and money buying products, ourselves included. For Dusan the first "lemon" he bought was a TV in 1984 that broke within 2 days and completely stopped working. For Lawrence it was a gaming monitor when he was 16, playing Maple Story but the right half of the monitor had dead pixels within a week. Fueled by these frustrations, Dusan & Lawrence sought out to create a resource that puts together information and buying guides to help their readers buy products online.
