Electronics Website Review - The Wirecutter

I'm now a fan of this website. The Wirecutter is a simple review site. It's run by the former editorial manager of Gizmodo, Brian Lam, but it has a very different feel than the Gawker blogs.

The idea is that he lists the best choice in electronics. He pulls together reviews from experts, testing statistics, and so forth, and designates what his top choice in a category would be based on these. He's always explicit with his sources, and with his reasoning points. If you're one of those people always being asked for advice on the best electronic whatever, this is a great fallback site.
