TechNutty submits non-biased reviews against various products and service, like most sites we will always give you a fair comparison between products and if we think one variation of this same product is better or even cheaper we will always let you know. Alongside this TechNutty will never take a payment for a review, and will always tell you what we think not what the advertisers do.
When reviewing products or services TechNutty will sometimes give them a score, when we do this we will split the score into sections, providing written pros and cons for the device along with a number of number based scores for the various features of the device, and then these will be added together for a total review score. These scores will be a number ranging from 1-10. 1-3 is what we consider being a terrible product/service, 4-6 is what we consider being a tolerable product/service, 6-8 is what we consider being an okay product/service, 9 is a good product/service and 10 is an exceptional product/service. All of these scores are based on our experiences at the time of review and will not take into effect any future changes to the device, we will do a new review if we feel the changes require a new score.
We also give readers the ability to vote on what they think the product/service should be rated at below the review section. Sometimes we will place ‘Hands on reviews’ on the site, these are just an author’s first impressions of a product and will only provide features of the product and some general ideas about the product. You accept that these are not full reviews and are instead a few breathe points about the product itself, however, products which we have posted this type of review for, will normally get a full review later on.
9. Review Items
TechNutty accepts no responsibility for review items sent to us, including, without limitation loss/theft before, during, or after the review process we hold no responsibility for its return, alongside which if a product is sent to an author on this site we cannot be held responsible if that author decides not to return the reviewed product, or in fact if they decide not to review the product in question.
We also require suppliers to give us details on whether they would like us to send the product back to them once the review is completed or not, and how this process will take place (I.E. Is the supplier supplying the return service and how it will be returned) before they send us the review product in question, this is simply so we can reject it or accept it on those terms.
After the review is finished we will let the sender know via an e-mail, asking for details on its return, during this process we will wait for 2 weeks for their reply, after which we will assume they don’t want the product back.
