Product review section ?

Post by curlyclaz » Thu Jun 05, 2014 9:15 am

Would there be any interest in having a dedicated product review section for our feedback on equipment/lenses/cl/frames etc ?

I think it's a grand idea! 8)

Yes, it's a good idea, but how would we keep the thread in focus and not allow people's ramblings about this or that rep to get into the way?

Same way as all the other threads :roll: :lol:
That will never happen but if they are in their own section with a new thread for each product at least there might be some easy to find info ?!

I'm not sure why reps would necessarily come into it, but on a forum such as this people do ramble sometimes. I guess you have to take the rough with the smooth. And we do. 8)

It's a good idea in principle; as in any sort of product review, people would need to be careful not to make overly critical or potentially libellous remarks.

Of course, we on this forum are all paragons of decorum and restraint, and would never stoop to such low behaviour. :wink:

I did wonder, but didn't like to say ! :lol:

Surely the way to do it, would be for someone to start a thread on an item that they wish to provide a review on, and let the chaos commence.?

A sub section is a good idea rather than a thread in with all else.

When, in a year or two an item is vaguely recalled, it can be difficult to remember where or what keys to search on.

Some of us Cloud Clutterers find our searches are pseudo-Alzheimered - ie limited to the last page of junk posted so searching dies... er, ..is killed off. :?

I did notice that ! But I was thinking more specific with just reviews, as currently it gets quite cluttered with general chat, a specific review section/sub section should make it easier to find info on a specific product ?

I would love to see a method to compare varifocal quality and not just rely on the sales patter or your fussy mother to validate them.
Without genuine impartial expert input and benchmarking there is a real danger that this just becomes a forum to slag off anything associated with essilor, alcon, luxottica & specsavers.

Varilux S Design - best vari out there at present

Alcon - utter crud service but decent products

Lux - some great products but by far the worst customer services

SS - cheap and cheerful - you pays your price, not the devil incarnate but great at differentiating between quality opticians and the rest
