I thought the recommended badge cheapened the conclusion. There are sites, like Madshrimps, that give these badges to every product that comes across their desk. They never met a free piece of hardware they didn't like.
- to place
- a bet on that
? We most definitely do not hand out a recommended tag to a product which does not deserve it, and at the same time, a product which doesn't get a recommendation isn't necessarily crap. These recommendations are categorized; they are for our readers
, if you see a product with a "high end" recommendation, it's most definitely expensive but you'll get performance in return, one recommended for value might not be a top performer but gives a high bang for the buck. there are also plenty of products which don't stand out performance/price wise but might be a new approach, they should be put in a different spotlight if they deserve it. Scroll through this page
and if you only look at the "tags" you can see which product will fit closest your goal, in one glance you get the conclusive thoughts without reading the whole review;
our aim of these tags is exactly to negate what you are stating here. Awards are Worthless
[quote]It boils down to the fact that many hardware review sites, big or small, are handing out â€œEditor Choice Awardsâ€
