Consumer Reports Magazine publishes reviews and comparisons of consumer products and services based on reporting and results from its in-house testing lab and survey research center.
The goal of the Consumer Reports Magazine is to further educate and inform consumers about the products that are marketed towards them everyday. They want people to know the products that they are considering buying so that they might make smart choices when purchasing different products and services.
The publication accepts no advertising, which makes it very different from other magazines within this same category.
Consumer Reports pays for all the products it tests and has no shareholders. This publication provides reviews for products consumers want with independence and impartiality. The publication runs on donations from the readers.
The online version of this publication allows readers to search for products and read the reviews by way of their computer or mobile device. The company prides itself on shutting down and exposing corrupt and false entities.
