Desktop Mates Review

Desktop Mates … Let’s get going. My aim is to help you out in your decision – should you pick up a copy or should you leave it on the shelf?. Ok, time for a no-nonsense admission – I haven’t in actual fact used or bought the product (read my About page for the reasons why), but I have trawled the internet hunting down info on it, to save you time. For real user reviews see the ‘Customer Reviews’ section to the right. So get ready as I save you time and give you all the information I have on Desktop Mates.

What claims is it making?

You don’t even need to click through to the product’s website, I have summarised all they have to say about themselves here:

Is anyone actually buying it?

Time for some hard facts. Again, the payment processor provides us with something they call the product’s “Gravity”. It’s an indication of how well the product is selling. I’ve processed this figure and turned it into a rating out of 100. Products with a high rating are popular. Desktop Mates scores 71.85/100 which is around standard.

Time to buy – your options

So, you’ve read through the résumé of what the product’s about. You’ve read the user reviews and testimonials. Perhaps you’ve decided you might like to buy the product. So what next?

Option 1: Buy Direct

You click through to http://desktopmates.com, and find their link to buy the product. You’ll be linked through to the payment processor page and you can make payment using a credit/debit card or PayPal. At the time of writing the standard price for the product is $20.


Option 2: Buy Through Me

If you click this link: desktopmates.com you’ll also be taken through to desktopmates.com, where you can buy the product in the same way as option 1. However, because you arrived at the site via a special link, I get the credit for sending over a potential buyer. If you do end up buying, I will receive a commission. There’s no difference in the cost to you. You might like to go for this option if:
