Old Test Results

I will not renew (after 30 years) my Consumer subscription. I think it ridiculous that Consumer delete their test results because they are more than a few years old.

Test results please

Come on Consumer, shavers are expensive and I want recommendations based on solid, reliable testing.

Annual subscription for what?

I signed up to Consumer NZ in the mistaken belief I would have access to reports going back years. Reports that would be unbiased and adverting free..

I have logged on a few times now prior to heading out to purchase something armed with Consumer NZ test reports. Fool me. Not once have I found a test report.

Don't think I'll renew my subscription. Perhaps Consumer should do a report on themselves for the best appraisals. Oh well back to the internet and all the advertising claims...best on the market have you heard that one.

Where's the test data?

Why don't you have test data, thats why I subscribe to Consumer - data!

Don't any of you use shavers?

You have entire sections for cometics, but none for shavers. How many adults do you know that don't shave? I don't get the logic behind excluding this section, people of any gender can surely test shavers? The comments about people looking for shavers are from 1 year or more back. Anyways, I'm gone, hope you do add a section for something people use daily and don't lose more members.

Why no test??

I spend my $12 a month to see tests of products I might want to buy, not a guide that can just be copied of the net.
Pretty poor Consumer

Test Please?!

Consumer NZ you can certainly do much better than just providing us with a guide? Please give us more value for our money and do tests on essentials like shavers?

Test on Electric Razors

I am annoyed Consumer has not done a test on men's razors as there are many thousands out there. I am not getting value for money when you only provide a guide, it does not tell me anything!!

Well Linda D. certainly couldn't have expressed my thoughts, any clearer.
Why are we not seeing test reports and, more importantly, recommendations?

Want a test

Cant see the point of the guide, appears a staff member didn’t have anything to do so lets write a guide.
The reason we sign up for consumer is to know which are good brands and ones to stay away from

Test the Products

This "guide" is mainly common sense. When we pay a Consumer subscription we are hoping for a qualitative test of products that we can compare i.e. a technical evaluation.
This is not good enough!

Electric shavers

It would be helpful if consumer was able to test electric shavers to recommend those providing a better shave

Very little useful guidance in the buying guide. What's needed is testing. I volunteer to take part in these tests.
