The Wirecutter and more recent Sweethome are two websites that focus on providing in-depth recommendations of products ranging from computers to cars to boots. They set up a business model (revenue comes from Amazon referrals) that helps to ensure they can provide the most honest recommendations possible. This, combined with extensive research in each product category has made these websites indispensable for me. I use their recommendations on almost every purchase I make now. (note: they were recently sold to the New York Times, so I hope the quality of their recommendations continues under the new ownership)
