35 design examples manually annotated by Baymard researchers

What’s this? Here you’ll find 35 annotated “Spec Sheet” design examples from Baymard’s UX benchmark of 60 major e-commerce sites. (Note: this is less than 1% of the full research catalog.)

Our large-scale usability testing reveals that users rely on spec sheets to provide important product information. Unfortunately, nearly all e-commerce sites (92%) perform poorly or mediocrely when it comes to spec sheet UX performance, particularly with regards to scannability, consistency, and descriptiveness.
