Stevivor’s rating structure explained

1

Hardware — Three tiers

We treat hardware differently than software. As it’s unlikely a piece of technology will be a complete flop, we judge hardware accordingly.

Our pick

Our pick

Best in class, for some reason or another. It might have some killer functionality, a ridiculous pleasing form factor or might simply be a no-brainer to buy. You need this.

Good value

It mightn’t be a powerhouse, but it’s got all the right boxes ticked and for a great price as well. Perfect for those looking for a bargain.

Not quite

It might be its price or simply some features that we’re not crazy about, but items in this category fall just a bit short of the mark.
