How we test and rate products
ITPro reviews a wide array of enterprise and business-centric hardware and software products to help IT decision-makers find the best value for their organizations. From office-based hardware such as laptops, webcams, and printers, to cloud-based software like online productivity suites and security applications, ITPro reviews the equipment that all businesses need.
How we test
Our in-house editorial team and our extensive pool of freelance experts source and test products with the sole purpose of finding the equipment that can make the job of an IT decision-maker that little bit easier. We review all products from this perspective and also provide additional insight with features and guides for purchase, installation, and troubleshooting.
Our reviewers take their time to rigorously test each product, putting laptops, printers, desktop servers, and more through a range of benchmarks to give our audience the information they need to make purchasing decisions. From the quality of a laptop’s display to the storage capacity of a cloud backup program, we leave no stone unturned when it comes to the performance of the products we review.
Find out more about ITPro’s testing process on our How We Test pages.
All ITPro reviews have a star rating on a scale of 1-to-5, with 5 being the highest mark possible. Some of our products will also be awarded an ‘Editors Choice’ award to distinguish them as best in class.
- 5 stars = Best of the best
- 4 stars = A great product
- 3 stars = Still worth consideration
- 2 stars = A poor product
- 1 stars = An awful product – something that wasn’t even worth reviewing.
