Product Scorecard

Welcome to the Lazyman Life Product Scorecard overview. Below you will find a list of criteria we have chosen to use when evaluating a product. The goal would be to assign a value between 1 and 5 (half steps allowed) that represents the product's score. These criteria scores are then aggregated into a final score.

Is the list comprehensive? Probably not. Are the scores scientifically derived? Nope. What's the point of this seemingly pointless exercise? Well, you might need to get back to us on that. We are going to try and use this method for evaluating products, and along the way maybe we can learn a few things. Feel free to throw any suggestions you might have our way!

At the end of the day, our mission is to evaluate products with consistency, impartiality, fairness, and integrity.
