What do you think? Product comparison functions

January 28, 2011 - 1 Comment

A while back, I mentioned a new product comparison function we’re experimenting with on We’re piloting the first one on a Cisco Small Business 100 Series Unmanaged Switches comparison. Although we have  a variety of comparison tables and rich spec data on the site, this function is a little different because it’s interactive and you can use it to filter and compare by different attributes.

If you’re the kind of person who’s involved in researching, recommending or purchasing, I’d really like your feedback: Is the information shown in the comparison the kind of data you need? What would you add, or take away?  Are the filtering attributes the kind you would use? How would the best imaginable comparison work?

Several of you have sent us very useful feedback though other channels, and I’d really love to hear from more via comments here.

  1. Martin, I like the comparison tool! I'd love to see it in use for all major product lines. One of the things that I often find useful is knowing whether or not a device does something in hardware vs software.
