Why do I recommend choosing a lamp to purchase online? Because usually there’s thousands of feedback for that specific product.
Just take a quick look through Amazon.com, you can clearly see how much products that they have and how much reviews/feedback that those specific products have accumulated.
These are incredibly useful for finding other peoples personal opinions on that product.
Furthermore, you can do a Google search on the name of the product and find even more information on it!
There are literally thousands of people searching for reviews on products that can be purchased online, and at the same time there are thousands of people giving their personal feedback for it!
Debunk The Reviews
After you have done some thorough research on a specific lamp you can then get a general idea on how well the lamp performs.
Is there a large number of people claiming that it works just as advertised or is it simply not worth your time because hundreds of buyers have nothing but bad comments to say about it?
This is what you should ask yourself after you have spent at least 30-60 minutes on that lamp.
I recommend spending ONLY 30 minutes, that is all the time you need to discover how well a lamp performs.
I have debunked a LOT of reviews over the years and found a “sweet spot” that I would like you to know.
A good rule of thumb to follow is this:
If a product is at 3.8 to 4 stars, it isn’t the best, but it will still be classed as “okay”.
When a product is on exactly 4 stars, then it is “good”.
However, when a product has over 4 stars, I call it “excellent”.
Anything under 3.8, I usually stay away from.
Make A Final Decision
Should you continue trying to find out if the lamp is right for you or should you move on to the next?
Only you can determine what will make a good choice for you, the online feedback and the reviews can only do so much.
It is up to you to figure out if the lamp is going to make a great choice for you and if it isn’t.
And the best way to do it? Repeat step 1 and step 2 until you get a good idea about that product.
