Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?
Yes! I recommend this Needle-Nose plier based on manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this Needle-Nose plier now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.
1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!
The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Michigan Industrial Tools (TEKTON) has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.
2. This Needle-Nose plier has positive reviews on the internet
Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.
This Needle-Nose plier has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this Needle-Nose plier more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on Amazon
3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!
Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.
First off, let's talk about its recent price change. This product became unavailable to purchase, so it's hard to tell. However, the last price change observed between January 8, 2020 and March 16, 2020 was a 0.00% price increase. Since this product is currently unavailable, you might want to check out the list of similar products I gathered in the similar products section!
Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this Needle-Nose plier was $39.99, and the lowest price point was $6.04. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.
What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. This product is currently unavailable so I can't really endorse its availability, sadly. If you plan to repeatly purchase this item, I would suggest looking for a similar product or a seller who has this product with better availability! In addition, I've seen a healthy amount of price movement around this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 12.51% at a time.
Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? I know it's currently unavailable, but if this becomes available a week later, based on past price points, I expect the price to be $45.58 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.Check Current Price on Amazon
4. Make sure TEKTON is a brand you can trust
TEKTON doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other Needle-Nose plier brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!
One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.
5. There are other options you might want to check out
I found 4 brands that have similar products like this one: IRWIN, Channellock, the same brand as this product, and Stanley. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Stanley. If you're looking for a Needle-Nose plier with best reviews, a product from the same brand as this product gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from IRWIN I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.See Similar Products on Amazon
