This is a very cool product. I like learning about my ancestry and health. I know people who have had unique experiences of meeting long lost relatives. Such a good concept.

Feedback

A little pricy.

I'm so happy I decided to take a 23andMe DNA test. I purchased it at a special Black Friday deal, took the test and then had results back within a few weeks. I learned that many of my habits are actually influenced by genetics. I love coffee. My genetics mean I'm more likely to consume more caffeine πŸ˜…. Apparently I have more Neanderthal DNA than 80% of the population πŸ™ˆ. I also connected with a few distant relatives and pieced together our shared family history. The final thing I like about 23andMe is that it keeps getting better - they add new genetic reports all of the time.

Personally I think 23andMe could do a much better job explaining what happens to your data, and how it is processed. Do they sell it on for research? If so, how is the data used?

Expensive, but worth it if you’re really into your ancestry and genetic make-up. Website is easy to use/navigate. Plus, they are always updating your account with new genes tested and updated ancestry profile.

Feedback

Very expensive, but better price with sales.

I was curious about my heritage, so I ordered a kit on Amazon's Black Friday sale. The results were pretty faster, arriving a few weeks before planned. I got to learn about where my ancestors lived, and got interesting health insights as well.

Feedback

I wish it was easier to connect 23andMe to other genealogy platforms.
