FiveStar Finds Amazon’s Best Products by Price Range

FiveStar

Do a lot of Amazon shopping? Then you’re going to dig this: a new website called FiveStar helps you uncover the best products on Amazon in any category and organized by budget. So for example, you can find the best coffee makers that are $10 and up, then see the best that are $20 and up, then $30, $40, $50, and so on. To determine what constitutes something being the “best,” FiveStar’s creator Matt Condon explains that the site uses a simple weighting algorithm that first looks at relevance, followed by popularity, star rating, then finally price. Launched only a few days ago, the site has already generated a little buzz on tech industry hangouts like Hacker News and Product Hunt, for example. Condon, a rising sophomore at Louisiana Tech University, is studying electrical engineering and physics, and is currently based in New York to participate in HackNY’s summer program and to intern at ad technology company Magnetic.
