We. Are. RAVE.

RAVE: Life Reviewed.

It’s not a product review site. It’s not a lifestyle magazine. But if those two met on an online dating site, well, let’s just say that 9 months later, you’d have RAVE.

A pure product review site will give you an exhaustive rundown on the features of a coffee maker or a vacuum or a set of headphones you’re considering. But life isn’t just about features — it’s also about fit. Does it fit your lifestyle? Your brand? Your needs?

That’s what RAVE does.

We take the best parts of the traditional product review — blind testing, rigorous data analysis, objective comparison of features — and smash them together with stylish design, attractive photography, and a conversational style of writing that’s as entertaining as it is informative.

We don’t just review products. We review life.
