To arm consumers with clarity and confidence to simplify their purchasing decisions.
BeastsLive is committed to providing comprehensive and trusted reviews for products that matter to consumers. We do the research to help you save time and money.
Product reviews are ubiquitous, but the truly beasts live consider all available data and insight about a product.
Our team tackles entire product categories to help modern consumers choose the best product for their needs. If you are looking for a lawnmower, you can research all of the hundreds of available models, or you can rely on our comprehensive analysis to help you make a confident decision faster.
We believe that any worthy recommendation must be built on a strong foundation and include three fundamentals:
1. Independent Lab Testing
We conduct our own battery of tests to ensure that our customers can purchase with confidence. We consider the factors that matter most to our users and test those using both standard and proprietary tests. These tests vary widely based on the product and may include, but are not limited to: durability, comfort, ease of use, transportability, compatibility, complexity, and time to value. We customize a battery of tests for every product we evaluate.
2. Expert Advice
We interview industry experts, super-users, contractors, and many others during our review process. Insights from those who use the product day in and day out help shed further light on issues we may notice in our laboratory testing (or perhaps guide us in creating an additional proprietary test) and further assist our efforts in providing comprehensive analysis. For instance, battery life may appear excellent when we test over a few uses and re-charge cycles in our lab. However, super-users may provide an insight around re-charge failure after eight to twelve months, requiring battery replacement far earlier than other similar models we are evaluating.
3. Consumer Feedback
We survey users around the country to gain their unbiased perspectives on products in a day to day setting. Without this final component, our reviews would lack real world feedback that can prove incredibly relevant to our users. For instance, a certain dishwasher may perform well in our lab testing and receive positive reviews from experts. However, after 12 months of wear and tear, the handle may fail in over half of all instances - creating a repair problem and a short-term safety risk. These key insights are important for our review process and only come from the consumers who use the products every day.
Where do you get the products from?
We purchase every product we review with our own funds - we never accept anything from product manufacturers. Our goal is to be 100% objective in our analysis, and we do not want to run the risk of being swayed by products provided at no cost. We also want to avoid the risk of a manufacturer sending us “juiced up” models. We review exactly what consumers buy off the shelf.
How do you conduct testing?
We use our own independent laboratory for testing. The lab is outfitted with all of the equipment to complete both standard as well as proprietary testing which helps us provide more comprehensive reviews for our customers.
How do you make money?
We make money only if a user clicks through to a vendor and makes a purchase. If we fail to win your trust and guide you to a purchasing decision, we do not make anything. We earn a referral fee on any item you buy, so we are not biased to pick one item over another. Our sole focus is delivering the beasts live possible.
We are in this for the long haul, and we succeed only by convincing consumers to come back again and again for all their purchasing decisions. If we fail at recommending the best product, our users won’t come back.
