Maze User Testing is great if you're interested in doing user research from the comfort of your own desk. You can easily setup usability tests, surveys, card sorting and tree tests among other things to get a better understanding of how customers use your product. The only limitation at the moment with Maze that I can identify is only being able to do unmoderated tests, so if you'd like to be able to ask follow up questions in the moment, Maze is not the tool for you.

UserZoom is well suited for usability testing, I found specifically around test websites and marketing materials. I was able to invite others to participate and watch as well as screen share so that it was an interactive session. Other tools I have used have been a little better with the video output and transcripts of each session so that we could capture notes quickly, but overall it was a good tool to use to test.
Read full review Pros Reporting is top-tier with filtration, heatmaps, user data, and public URLs for stakeholders Figma integration with user testing software is about as fast as it gets The experience for testers is practically seamless going from our site to a Maze. Loads of completed Mazes. Read full review Quantitative testing can be done on the cheap compared to other quant tools or vendors... once you buy the license, you only pay for additional recruiting and you are managing the project, so there isn't the high cost of having other vendors doing the project management or running a survey etc. Farily robust means of tracking and recording data. I also relied heavily on the excel spreadsheet of all the raw data, which you can have UZ customize for you to get what you need. Great support system from the UserZoom team - they have researchers who can help with coding and also provide research support for a very good price. Also they have tree testing, card sorting, survey capabilities (in addition to usability testing)... and mobile testing. and they seem to be continously be developing the tool to support additional methods.

Just let me select May, Must, or Should not for criteria rather than the weird interface design they have now. Logic panel is a little confusing, sometimes I do a double-take, sometimes it's wonky and resets itself. It's just not as easy to use as it could be. They haven't integrated UserZoom and UserZoom Go (formerly Validately) It's expensive! We signed up for a high sample size license with unlimited tests, but we're finding their panel doesn't fill as fast as their biggest competitor, UserTesting. We've struggled to fill n=100 sample tests with fairly general criteria. A lot of their licenses only allow limited concurrent studies, whereas UserTesting had unlimited tests that you could launch at a time. It's slowed us down. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I'm actually trying to get a license for my current job at my current company (recently moved to a new company). I gave it this rating because I am about to go to our executive to ask that we purchase it! I know that there will be value because we are forecasting a high volume of research next year

Overall, it was fairly easy to use. Especially if you are familiar with this type of product. We were able to use it for testing pretty much right after we got it (same day) and didn't have many issues figuring out how to invite, test, and share which was great.

From my experience, the UserZoom team has really done a great job answering the limited questions we have given them thus far. I think the platform is popular enough that many of my questions have been answered by their help pages - or other online content with helpful tips and tricks. I think the community has done a nice job of providing end-user tutorials for those who are new to the platform.

is an alternative option if you think Maze User Testing is quite expensive for you, but look back has a different approach to Maze User Testing.
focuses on qualitative usability testing instead of quantitative UserTesting. And also, Maze User Testing has a free option but
doesn't have it, but
has a cheaper option at $19/month than Maze.

Client selected it due to how they used it, pricing, and what it could do for them. It's about the same as these other tools but
let's you run multiple types of task in one test, and
still has a bigger panel I think
