Sometimes, you can’t always go off by what you hear. One person might have a really bad experience with a product, but you could have a perfectly good experience. A great example is cat food. When I was researching what kind of cat food to get, my mom recommended a brand of cat food, but when I tried it, it made my cat ill! My mother had never issues though, so even though it didn’t work out for me, it worked for her just fine. Now I am not saying if a product has bad reviews, you should buy it anyways. If a product has overwhelmingly bad reviews, then it would be best to find something else to buy. Another example is with window air conditioners. If I was going off purely what I heard, I would think window air conditioners are the worst! However, for me, that couldn’t be further from the truth. I bought a window HVAC system for my bedroom, and even though I had heard many people say that window heating and cooling systems can’t cool an entire room, mine proves them wrong. I am really glad that I bought the window A/C despite what others were saying, because for me, they really work. Now my room is actually cooler than the rest of the home! That is just the way I like it too, because the central A/C is just not enough for me. I would recommend giving the window air conditioner a try, for those who are doubtful, who knows, it could work for you too!
