    I think our current equipment review system is not effective. The reason is that everyone who buys something that they have already tried is almost guaranteed to like it, hence... 5 star ratings almost across the board. Look at the reviews, they are all glowing!

    I suggest that asside from the rating of the author, others are permited to post their rating of 1 to 5 stars and the average is displayed.

    (This assumes that what I suggest is technically feasible and not too expensive to setup)

    Please post your comments.
  2. Huh? Equipment reviews? Where?
