Our sister site, lesnumeriques.com was founded in Paris in 2004 and was one of the very first online magazines dedicated to testing consumer electronics products.
DigitalVersus, the English-language version, followed in 2007. Every day, dozens of products pass through our labs, from the tiniest smartphone or GPS to huge LCD TVs. A team of technicians and journalists tests each and every product impartially. Our aim is to make our findings as clear as possible for readers with little or no technical experience, so that you can make an informed choice and buy the right product.
Where does the money come from? How can we trust your results?
We're committed to providing independent tests, and are only too happy to be open about how we make our money. We have three main income streams:
The first is from our UK price comparison site, PricesVersus.com. Every time you look at one of our product tests, you'll see a list of the best prices available on the web. If you then click through from our review and decide to buy one of our products, we'll receive a small cut. It's a fair system as we remain totally independent: the vendors are all chosen by our partners, eBay Commerce Network, and we have no say in whose prices appear. The same is true for the manufacturers: we have no interest in pushing one brand over another as you'll see the same independent list of prices either way.
Secondly, there are ads, which are managed for us by M4Media. They handle the contracts and the details: where the ads go, how many there are, how long they last and what formats are shown for example. We do refuse some advertisers, though. Classic examples include online gambling or adult websites.
The third, and smallest source of income for us is syndicating our content in print magazines and newspapers. It's not an area where we're looking for growth, though. We are seeking to grow, of course--but online!
The last thing you should know—-and you'll just have to take our word on it-—is that these sites were founded by a group of four friends with money out of their own pockets with the aim of bringing you the most impartial tests out there.
