What information can you expect here
Smart TV Club is first and foremost a resource for Smart TV buyers. I strive to provide information, news and buying tips on Smart TVs. With this resource, I am able to:
- Provide you with in-depth analysis of a product.
- Share the pros and cons of a product.
- Share buying guides and tips so that you can make an informed decision before making the next purchase.
Why I started this website
The reason I started this website is because I learnt valuable lessons in my life, some through my very own sweet and bitter experiences and also through the experiences of my friends and relatives. Sadly, there was no one to guide us through the harsh experiences we went through. So, through this blog, I would like to share my experiences with you, so that you can avoid the bitter experiences and only go for the sweet ones, if they make sense to you.
What actually happened
One of my cousins who always wanted to be the very first guy to try out all the electronic gadgets that come out in the market, made a wrong choice by buying the wrong TV. He later regretted his decision and does it till today. From his mistakes, here’s what I learnt:
- He got carried away by the name of the brand.
- Wanted to be the first one to own it (among us), so acted hastily.
- Never considered the technical specifications of the product.
- Never thought of accessing the current market situation.
- Never looked through other options available.
- Spent lot of money for something that he could have got a great ROI, had he waited for some time.
Considering the mistakes that he made, I thought that there has to be a better way to fix this problem. My family and friends know that I put a lot of effort and time in evaluating a product before I buy it. Because of their belief in me and my confidence in myself, the idea of starting a website through which I could share valuable knowledge to everyone, struck me. Thus, Smart TV Club was born!
How it works
- I do NOT blindly go by the brand name to buy products. For me, the most important factor in buying a product is its true value and what it brings to the table.
- I buy devices as I need and review them. So, this means that I actually test them as well.
- My products selections are based on my actual needs, followed by the features that I would like to have.
- I visit the actual product stores (whenever possible) to see what the product looks like. Some products (like a car) may require an actual visit to the store to get the feel of the product and some don’t.
- Whenever I visit my friends and relatives, I seek their review on the products they buy. I also seek the different sources of information they used to make the decision.
- I seek review of products (again) after they have been used for at least a good while.
- I also analyze the market condition at the time of purchase to make sure I am purchasing the right product.
- I also look at the different available options in the market and compare them with the products that I have in my shortlist, so that I do not burn more cash than necessary.
- I prefer to go for products that I feel, offer or have the possibility of providing more ROI.
- I also look for the possibility of scaling my purchases in the future.
- I also consider the technical specifications of the product (thanks to my engineering background), to make sure it fits my requirements.
How you (or literally anyone) can benefit from my work
- I give highest importance to the product and the benefits that it offers. I am not a person who gets carried away by the brand name of the company who manufactures it. So, you can expect only quality products to make it to the end of my selection criteria.
- All the information that I provide, is completely free. There are no cost or fees associated with accessing the information.
- Will save lot of time (hours and even days) in research.
- Will save tons of efforts.
- All research and criteria that were used to shortlist/choose a product are made transparent, to facilitate buying decisions.
- Access all this information from the comfort of your home, on your mobile.
- Share the helpful content with others who you think, might benefit from the information that I provide.
- There is a high possibility that there is a newer brand that could offer a product with similar value or even more. I try to get this in front of you before you make a purchase, so that you can consider this before deciding to buy.
I hope that you or anyone you know and share my content with, will benefit from my research and analytical thinking in the form of buyer’s guide and product reviews that I post on this website. Nothing makes me happier than knowing that I was able to help out a fellow human in ways I can, especially saving them lot of time, efforts and money.
