Based in Yonkers, New York, Consumer Reports has been sticking up for the rights of consumers since 1936, when they started the Consumers Union and began publishing product reviews of such common-place items as breakfast cereals, soap, stockings, and hot water bottles. On this site, visitors can learn about the history of Consumer Reports, which includes a series of rather interesting test photos that feature products like paper towels and automobiles. Of course, the main focus of the site are the product reports, and while not all of the material on the site is freely available, there is certainly enough free content to warrant several visits. The product and service reports are divided into sections such as appliances, autos, home & garden, and personal finance. The right-hand side of each section page contains free highlights, such as Finding the Best Hospital, Outdoor Lighting Design, and Camcorders. Overall, the site is organized quite well, and will be a great boon to those persons who are hoping to find quality product reports, all of which are developed by a team of knowledgeable experts.
