At marlameridith, our ultimate goal is fairness – to you, our readers, and to manufacturers. To this end, we will not accept payment for positive reviews.

marlameridith periodically receives (and buys) products for testing from manufacturers each year. In the process, most are used and either returned to the manufacturer or kept for long-term testing.

The receipt of a product for testing in no way guarantees a positive review, and marlameridith editors have a strict policy of objectivity, including identifying any flaws or weaknesses as well as good points in every product we review.

marlameridith does publish occasional sponsored articles, which are paid advertising and are marked as such. Sponsored articles comprise less than 1 percent of all content on marlameridith, with the majority of our coverage based on traditional editorial and journalistic practices.
