Reviews and Disclosure Policy

My reviews appear on this page in no particular order: –

 Reviews |

In the UK, I am required by law to let you know if I have received cash or products, in exchange for writing a review.

A reviewer could be breaking the law if you don’t see a Disclosure Policy on their website.

In short, the relationship between someone reviewing a product, and the manufacturer or product provider, should be easily understood. More information about advertising codes and conduct here >>Β

Disclosure Policy ~ valid from 15 November 2015: –

“My blog is personal. I do not receive any compensation or sponsorship to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics.

I write for my own purposes but I may be influenced by: –

My background, occupation, religion, political affiliation or experience.

I only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my user experience, are worthy of endorsement.

My blog may contain content which might present a conflict of interest. This content may not always be identified”.

Finally, the views and opinions expressed on my blog are all my own.

Reviews: Best practice

In summary, I try and incorporate the following: –

  1. Easily verifiable factual information;
  2. An accurate assessment of any product, of course;
  3. Personal user experience forms the basis of my reviews;
  4. In addition, reviews on other sites to gain a general product consensus;
  5. Links to the manufacturer website;
  6. This information may include testimonials, technical and sales information.

Measures and scoring:

Each product receives a score in the following five categories: –
  1. Design and ease of use;
  2. Features;
  3. Reliability;
  4. Sound quality;
  5. Value for money.
The overall score is based on the average of the test scores: –
  • 75 to 100: Excellent and recommended;
  • 50 to 75: Good but some drawbacks;
  • 25 to 50: OK but consider alternatives;
  • Less than 25: Avoid. Plenty of flaws.

Finally, I hope you enjoy reading my reviews and find them helpful. Thank you. | by Simon Edward | Updated: MarchΒ 2018.
