According to its About page, Modern Castle is attempting to “help you discover, research, and select the best products for your home. To fulfill our mission, we are continually testing new products, researching, analyzing, and improving our review process.” The website launched several weeks ago on October 4, 2017, but has already seen a rapid surge of product tests and reviews, all of which are centered around vacuum cleaner reviews.
Hales, the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the platform, has been widely discussed in recent months across a number of major web publications—including Fast Company, the New York Post, and Gizmodo—for his work on the highly successful platform Sleepopolis.com, which he recently sold. Hales is joined by staff writers from his previous platform who test and review products as a team.
When asked about his decision to launch the new platform, Hales said, “Finding informative, quality, and trusted reviews online has become more difficult over the years. Since college, I have had a passion for creating websites that help answer questions in an educational, but still interesting and easy-to-understand format. It’s my hope that I can create another exceptional platform that can help consumers find the information they need to make decisions about the best products for their home.”
