Welcome to CCL Tech, the latest spin-off from CCLOnline. We will provide our customers and general readers with excellent advice on new and old products that CCL carry on our catalogue pages.
We are working on offering comparative reviews on the products that are actually important to our customers, the hugely popular but under-represented middle of the range graphics cards, entry level CPUs and economical monitors.
Don’t get me wrong we will review the latest and greatest from time to but we will not be focusing on it as we understand for 95% of the market the high end products are too expensive, too rare or just too risky to consider.
We will initially be focusing on the products our customers care most about and cause the most questions. Laptops, hard drives, motherboards, low to middle of the range graphics cards, monitors and peripherals. These are the products that often have our customers (and us!) bemused as to which is the best option…. Who knows what the real difference is between a Lenovo B and G series laptop really?!
We will initially be working on a scoring system based around a total score out of 50 with a breakdown into several key areas:
- Value for Money
- Build Quality
All will be weighted the same with a score out of 10, we feel they all have equal importance but in a different order depending on priorities. For example a super high end £500 graphics card could score overall lower than the £150 mainstream model due to having poor value for money but equal build quality, design and features to a model lower in the range. We will look to publish more details on our scoring system in the near future.
We will be developing this idea over the coming weeks and we welcome your feedback, after all we are doing this for our loyal customers so we would love to hear what you want to see and how you think we can improve!
