Bestcovery (Best + Discovery) is the fastest, easiest, most accurate way to find the best of everything. Bestcovery eliminates the guesswork in choosing the right product or service, saves you time, and is free to use. We help you discover the best products and services for a wide range of categories all at one convenient site. Our trusted experts and methods cut through the clutter to identify the best products and services for your particular needs, so you don't have to spend long hours of research.
Other sites make it difficult and time-consuming to learn which products and services are best. They often force you to plod through dozens of reviews and articles, many of which present conflicting or outdated recommendations. They cover limited numbers of choices. And a lot of these other sites can't or won't pick best products or services because they have insufficient expertise or don't want to offend advertisers. We're different:
Our recommendations accurately represent the best in the marketplace whether you go with the winning selection or a runner-up. Additionally, our selections are unbiased and never influenced by advertisers, gifts, freebies, or payments of any kind. Different products and services require different methods for determining the best. Here’s how we do it:
Think of Bestcovery's experts as the trusted friend you turn to for buying advice. Our expert community is made up of devoted industry veterans, avid enthusiasts, and consumer advocates who have proven their knowledge in recommending the best. They know the strengths and weaknesses of the contenders, understand which qualities matter the most, and through a combination of research and hands-on experience can pick the best for many desired applications. You will find expert selections throughout the site in many fast changing and technical categories.

Crowdsourcing and Technology
We've built sophisticated technology to gather and analyze vast amounts of user reviews and rankings, and then provide accurate and unbiased recommendations based on the collective experiences of millions of people. We've found this to be the most accurate way to determine the best in less technical areas like hotels, books, and some consumer goods. To ensure a consistent experience across the whole website, we take this information and present it in a format similar to the expert recommendations.
This medallion, with a light blue ribbon, represents selections made by crowdsourcing and technology:
Deciding the best is indeed subjective. But for technology products and services and certain fast changing categories, the best people qualified to pick the best are top experts with deep, current, hands-on, comprehensive knowledge of their categories. We combine the recommendations of top experts along with our analytical systems to pick the best products and services for your specific applications. We don't use published consumer reviews or aggregates of reviews to determine the best, since these can be dated or biased or incomplete. While we do believe these criteria have some limited value (and we provide them as additional data points for some products) they usually don't address the fundamental suitability of products and services for specific needs, and often aren't current or comprehensive enough for you to use to make a decision.
Sometimes the best overall pick is just not right for you - it's not your preferred design, brand, color, etc., or it lacks a special feature that you need, or is simply not available to you. In some cases the best pick is a close decision among a few top contenders. For this reason we report runner-ups when then decision is close, or to give you additional choices if you need them.
Every pick that makes it into a Bestcovery lists regardless of ranking is a great product, service, or tip. If fact, it can be difficult to rank choices since we only recommend the best-of-the-best in our recommendations. The reason that we provide more selections beyond our 'Best' pick is because sometimes a user may prefer one of the runner ups because of a certain feature, price point, color, ergonomics, etc. We provide more choices so you can pick the 'Best' for you from our top picks. You can feel confident choosing anything from our lists whether it is ranked number one or number 5.
When solid analytical data is available in certain areas we provide a popularity ranking that lists products or services based on how popular they are with shopping consumers. You can access this information by clicking on 'See Popular Items' when you see the best pick and the runner-ups for a category.
