      I suggest you should check the manufacturer’s review. But sometime the reviews can be fake too. I always find the manufacturers with a lot of saved profile, and a reasonable amount of reviews to be the better manufacturers. I always start with the most saved. Then I check on the highest response rate. Then I eliminate all vendors with negative reviews. The last thing I check to see is if manufacturer has more than the normal reviews compare to other manufacturers. I usually find the manufacturers which get normal amount of reviews, with less negative reviews, and more save profiles to be the best vendors and most professional. The manufacturers with a lot of positive reviews are usually better in customer service, and they are very good at social media. The manufacturers with a lot of profile save but some bad reviews are usually industry veterans. I would avoid manufacturers that don’t bother to address customers bad reviews at all costs.
