Hi, JL here. I have owned and operated Swift Moves since 2021. I am just your average dentist-turned-blogger that realized reviewing portable speakers is more enjoyable than fixing teeth.

However you found our site, I would like to sincerely thank you for reading.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me: jl@swiftmoves.blog.

Our Purpose

Our mission is simple: find out what people are searching for and give them the most honest, helpful answer possible.

I know you aren’t here to learn about my family or my politics — if your headphones won’t turn on, we want to help you fix it. If you aren’t sure whether it is worth spending an extra $50 for the updated version of a product, we will help you decide.

While you are here, you will probably notice advertisements — that’s how we make money. The more people that read, the more ads get viewed, and the larger our writing budget gets. That’s how we have grown from 1 writer to 5, and from a few visitors daily to a few million visitors yearly, so we won’t apologize too much.

But wait, why don’t your competitors show ads?” Generally, an electronics website that is ad-free chooses to make money by “affiliate commissions.” In other words, they convince you to buy stuff.

While we make a small percentage in this fashion, our primary revenue comes from display advertising because our goal isn’t to sell stuff. So if we think a speaker is overpriced junk, we will tell you it’s overpriced junk.

Editorial Standards

We will start by addressing the million dollar question: “Do you actually test the products you review?”

Yes — 100% of the time — we complete hands-on testing of our products before posting any product reviews.

So when you read our thoughts on our favorite products (like the JBL Flip 6) you can trust that the product has been tried and tested by a staff writer. Most of our product comparison articles (like the side-by-side discussion of the UE Wonderboom 2 vs. Wonderboom 3) follow this same format of extensive hands-on testing prior to publication.

In some (rare) instances, feature comparisons between multiple products are researched and published without extensive hands-on testing.

An example would be our discussion of the Best SD Cards for the Wyze Cam v3. Here, our knowledge of the Wyze Cam v3, combined with our knowledge of the relevant features to look for in micro SD cards, allows us to publish an article after extensive research but without testing each product individually.

Wait, so you are posting fake reviews?

Absolutely not!

Because we are experts with technology, gadgets, and troubleshooting electronics, we know the features that matter and we know the pitfalls to avoid.

Have you ever been frustrated that your new laptop doesn’t have a CD drive, or that your new speaker doesn’t have an aux port? Have you ever purchased a “portable” gadget that requires an electrical cord to function? Have you ever overpaid for low quality earbuds that last for weeks or months, rather than years? Yeah — we can help you avoid that.

As it was eloquently stated by Fin vs. Fin:

“In general, someone’s individual experience is just one data point, but is often less relevant than other facts. As an example, it would be unwise to try a new brand of contact lenses or birth control, simply because they worked well for someone on our team.

Instead, our goal is to lay out objective facts about the products and brands we review to make it easier for shoppers to make decisions about them. One of those facts may be our personal experience with a product, but not always.”

Again, thank you for being here. If you have any questions, article requests, or inquiries, please contact us at jl@swiftmoves.blog
