Obviously you’ll need to be doing both at the same time to some extent, to understand if your budget is realistic.

Using the average rating is also one of the best ways to help you make a decision when you are stuck on the fence and can’t decide which one to buy. When you click through to find the best price you will see a customer reviews tab on the retailer website, be sure to read a few.
