How much should score affect your decision in choosing a source?

Well you get what you pay for , bur price is important also. I dont want to pay top dollar for poor quality, so i belive the score should reflect both.

Human grade is expensive for a reason.
Animal vet grade is cheaper for a reason.
Ugl is cheapest for a reason.
Guess which one causes the most abscess and infection?

Quality over Quantity. As mrking_89 said "You get what you pay for"

Think about it, Its something you're putting into your body. It's becoming part of your body. Why would you cheap out on something has an effect on your body?
If you're someone who is going to complain about prices, or maybe opt for a cheaper brand that has no credibility because you didn't want to pay $20 more for the more reputable brand. Then maybe this path isn't for you...

Just my opinion. Quality > ALL

Quality above all.....

Price will influence peoples decision, whether they admit it or not.....but hopefully good sense will prevail.

As with most things in life you get what you pay for.

Price should not matter in scoring. Were grown-up and can price shop the sources with consistent quality

Quality is the most important factor simple as that. I think that the amount of reviews should count towards the score as well, because I see some sources have thousands of reviews but they are below a source with a few hundred review. All we want is pharmaceutical grade gear is that too much to ask for quality above all other.

Quality and dependability should be the largest scoring factors.

IMO I don't think price should come into it and if it does it should not be anywhere near as important as Quality as many will and have said , quality over everything.

Much respect.

I believe price should not be a part of scoring. Quality gear is what we're all after and that, standing alone, should be how it's rated. I believe when I voted , I put the two on the same level. Wish I could change that.

For Me Top Quality is #1..Price Shouldn't matter if you know you're getting Top Quality. Since I'm New to this I'm rolling the Dice ,Studying, reading comments. Just like anything else it's Trail and Error till I hit the Right Source .

I think price is a big factor but at the same time for consistency in quality a higher price is worth it IMO.

Nailed it. Price effects the decision, but Quality is worth more, no doubt.

Price should be removed from the ranking system because the member knew what the price was before buying the product. If you don't like the price you can go elsewhere and basically rating and reviewing price is irrelevant because everyone that visits the sources site can already see the price. It's quality and all the other aspects that are the unknown factors going into ordering.

Just from this pole you can see that about 60% of people think "Price" should affect score less than quality or shouldn't be factored at all.

So, I realize Nextdaygear prices are high, so this analytical argument will be put under a microscope, so let's just pretend I'm not Nextdaygear.

When people go to check a sources score, and specific scores on certain "score" attributes (Quality, Service, Delivery, and Price), they're checking to see what other members thought about the services that they wouldn't know upfront/going into a transaction. You can't tell by looking at website what the Delivery, Service, Quality, and delivery is going to be. It's an "unknown" variable that you have to rely on member feedback to determine. The one attribute that sources rate that is an absolute known, is the price. By this logic, we could also vote on how much members like the sources Logo, website, product labels, as these are also known attributes potential customers can clearly see before purchasing.

So, if a customers sees my price, orders the product, and is satisfied, they knew the price going into the transaction. Whether they were happy with or not is regardless because they chose to make the purchase. Other Potential customers don't "need" your rating on a given sources' price because it's something they can clearly see from a sources website/pricelist.

Another argument would be that this is where quality comes into play. If you rate "Quality" a 10, it's implied that you were satisfied with the quality of the product after the price you knew you were paying before you ordered. It's entirely possible that the quality could be amazing, but you could still receive a 9 because they didn't feel the quality deserved a score of 10 based on the price.

It's similar to a Milwaukee drill and a Ryobi drill both receiving 10s in quality. Whiile Milwaukee is a far superior brand product, people also are very happy with Ryobi because of the value. Just an example that shows how quality and price are related and can be fairly used in the scoring process of a voting matrix.

Price is just a bonus if it's low for quality product, if someone has the best quality products their score should be higher than someone providing garbage for a low price.the person selling garbage would have a high score and cheap prices everyone would think he is the best.when in reality he is the worst and should have a low score because his gear is garbage

Quality is by far #1 after that delivery times then price. You cant put a price on trust.

I thinks is tricky! some sources can put prices up to the roof claiming that they sell best quality thats why prices are higher but actually they do shit. they just abusing this formula and some sources sell cheaper with better quality or could be opposite around:) so is 50:50.
so in this game you might buy the products you know ( even then you not 100% sure you will get same as last year) and you are playing it too safe and getting nowhere fast?

A ship is always safe at the shore - but that is NOT what it is built for.

The way the market is now a days with aas unfortunately theres so many scams..fakes..underdosed compounds that personally... I'm willing to pay a little more IF it means I'm getting quality. One thing i will never umderstand..If u have a good product..why fuck with it..people will buy it..they will come back for more..and u will profit. Its so much easier to be legit..so much less problems..less worry...u build a solid reputation and the Sky's the limit. Instead..most opt for the alternative...and the outcome is always the same. They never last. Granted they usually turn back up with a different name..but only to repeat the same failure. The fucked up part is you just dont know wtf your even putting in your body anymore. And i dont know about anyone else..but i take it REAL PERSONAL if someones selling me anything else other than what its supposed tobe.So..as I said..if I know a product is legit..dosed correctly.. And the person I'm dealing with has a good rep...I'm deff willing to pay more.

If the product is legit and well made then the people behind it should be compensated fairly. I don't want a price competition. I want a quality competition, and then they can start competing with prices.

I think you should get what you pay for, It's only fair. I'd be willing to pay a little more for a clean and effective product vs some other guy who has the same thing half off but watered down. It's fair to the supplier and us. Yes I don't want to spend a arm and a leg but I think you can see what my point is.

I voted to leave it how it is, I believe price should effect the score. I've used easily over a couple dozen labs over the last year's. And I've gone high and low with prices and honestly sometimes the high price is justified. But I've had $20 test e put my blood work where it should be and $50 test show its underdosed. And I've had 40-50$ test properly dosed as well. So you don't always get what you pay for in gear. People that have been in this game a while know how cheap hormones really are. And whether a source charges $25 or $50 for a vial of test it didn't cost more than $2 tops to make. Its the profit margin of the source nothing more. Same with oral gear. There is over a 1000% profit in oral gear on the basic mark up of the price it's insane. So I believe a source who sells quality clean gear at a reasonable price not a price gouger should be higher on the list. Then a source that claims to use better raws etc. Its not always true its better. Only exception are the couple sources who close test every raw batch brew then open back up and even then there price justifies the cost of all the testing so they would get a good vote on price as well.

Cheap people eh? I'll take my high prices if I get the gains! Anyone who will take price over quality are the same people who eat Ramen noodles and drink Cristal instead of eating steak and shrimp and drinking water.
