In a recent discussion, I spoke of shopping around with pricing and shopping assistants (robots) but when I am looking for product reviews before buying items (mostly electronic), I go to http://www.cnet.com or directly to sites like Best Buy or wherever I can read what users have to say. (Note: Cnet also offers free downloads for various freeware software/applications)
I have used product review sites frequently to look for information on certain products to read what others have to say before I buy. I often read the "product reviews" testimonials here on Diabetic Connect to determine "tried and true" products from other members.
You can also use the keyword "review" with your intended purchase (make/model) on search engines like yahoo.com, google.com and my all-time favorite search engine, http://www.dogpile.com. The more an item costs, the more research I am willing to do.
When it comes to Ebay and related kinds of sites, I check the sellers feedback ratings and history of sales. I’ve never been “stuck” as a buyer.
I just purchased an Acer laptop for $279 that I reviewed online to find it has a 4.2 out of 5 star rating. The regular price was $379.
Add http://www.cnet.com to your website link lists when you have time.
Do you have any product review sites you'd like to share?
