While it is a good practice for the visitor of any review site to treat every product recommendation with a healthy degree of skepticism, it would be mistake to assume that every review is invalid just because there may be a commision paid to the reviewer.
Here are some readers protection we attempt to build into our reviews:
1). Many of the review contain lots of factual information that is easily verifiable. We always try to provide an honest and accurate assestment.
2). Attempts are made to establish the general consensus in relation to specific products by reading reviews of those product on other sites, along with user testimonials and we attemp to portray this overall perception in our reviews.
3). We always provide links to the manufacturer's website to provide additional information that is not available in our reviews. Some of this information can include customer testimonials, more specific product details, sales information, free newsletters and even sample products.
These are good rules of practice. It's important for you as a consumer to understand the relationship between a person reviewing the product with the manufacturer. If you do not see a disclosure policy on a review site, that reviewer may be commiting an offence.
I hope that you have a useful and meaningful experience as a direct result of our detailed reviews and articles. We welcome any feedback that may help us to improve your experience whaen visiting this website.
