About The Best Suggestions

Vsurya strives to be the most trusted product recommendation service on the internet. We obsessively test and report on thousands of items each year to recommend the best of everything. Our goal is to save you time and eliminate the stress of shopping, whether you’re looking for everyday gear or gifts for loved ones. We work with total editorial independence. That means nothing appears on the site as a recommendation unless our vsurya and editors have deemed it the best through our rigorous reporting and testing. vsurya was founded in December 2021 .

Our reviews take weeks or months of research and years of experience. In addition to relying on our own expertise, we gather interviews and data from the best sources around, including engineers, scientists, designers, and innumerable subject matter experts, ranging from barbers to cat café staff (and residents) to corn hole champions. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the things we’re assessing. In a world where overpriced, top of the line models loaded with junk features are often seen as the gold standard, we aim to recommend high quality things that warrant their price and don’t push extra features you’ll rarely use.

Our process is often fascinating and fun (imagine creating an obstacle course for robot vacuums, say, or setting a room ablaze to test fireproof safes). And we apply our assiduous approach and next level research skills to more than 1,000 product categories, including washing machines, TVs, artificial Christmas trees, bath towels, nonstick pans, soundbars, storage bins, office chairs, headlamps, sewing machines, mattresses, wine glasses, air purifiers, space heaters, treadmills, iPhone cases, Wi-Fi routers, carry on suitcases, cloth face masks, and, yes, actual vsurya. In everything we do, we endeavor to make finding the best stuff and knowing what stuff isn’t worth buying quick, easy, and transparent, so you can get on with living your life.

These are the same things we choose for ourselves and recommend to our family and friends. If we recommend that you spend your hard earned money on something, we take it as seriously as if our own money were on the line.

If a reader chooses to buy a product we recommend as a result of our research, analysis, interviews, and testing, our work is often (but not always) supported through an affiliate commission from the retailer when the reader makes the purchase. There’s no incentive for us to pick inferior products or to respond to pressure from manufacturers in fact, it’s quite the opposite. If a reader returns their purchase because they’re dissatisfied or the recommendation is bad, we make no affiliate commission. We think that’s a pretty fair system that keeps us committed to serving our readers first. And of course, our writers and editors are never made aware of or influenced by which companies have affiliate relationships with our business team.

The most important thing to us is reader trust. If we were to recommend something due to bias or laziness, readers wouldn’t support our work. We also invite readers to fact check our pieces, which carefully outline the time, logic, and energy we spent researching, interviewing experts, and testing gear. Often, this takes dozens sometimes even hundreds of hours. Each guide plainly lays out all the evidence for how we made our picks so you can judge for yourself.

Reach out to let us know if you need advice in figuring out a particular shopping challenge. Our staff made of smart and curious people who love to investigate reader questions will do their best to help.
