Access to Consumer Reports – Just one click away

When you are making a big purchase such as a new washer and dryer, what are the steps you usually take to research different products?  Do you ask friends for their opinions, or perhaps browse appliance stores in-person to get recommendations from a salesperson?   Another helpful and convenient option might be to check out what Consumer Reports has to say. 

Consumer Reports is a well-known, trustworthy research magazine for evaluating consumer products. 12 issues a year are published, containing ratings and reviews of thousands of consumer products and services.
