Product and Service Reviews
Many of these websites specialize in certain products or services, while others have a wide scope.
Fake reviews are prevalent online, as some are affiliated with one of the products or paid to say something is great or poor.
Don’t put much weight in reviews that are either extremely good or bad, but try to pick up the prevailing theme.
The more reviews the better, as it is harder then for fake reviews to throw off the average.
It's wise to combine online reviews with any input from reputable experts and friends/acquaintances.
