    I'm guessing that the single review that doesn't say "Verified Owner" is you? :p

    No worries:)

    On topic:
    I have read many reviews since starting to use NewEgg in 1994. It is amazing at some of the reviews that people leave. It can turn people off to another wise good product.

    Newegg will clean that up. They watch the reviews and who is posting. They just haven't caught it yet

    I read the reviews and take them subjectively. I look for common problems with a product and then think if it can be a common user error. I tend to lean towards the product being good or at least doing what they manufacture says it will do. There do seem to be a lot of bogus reviews out there though.

    Newegg reviews are quite useful. You just have to know how to read them.

    Looks like two reviews are by the same person, even the wording is near verbatim. Reviewers are usually tards and you have to sort through them properly or take the risk of buying the product and probably having no problems with it. I can't even stand to read customer reviews about hard drives and SSDs because everyone's hard drive or SSD breaks in a week while some last 3 or 5 years.

    I get a good laugh reading through some of the reviews where the reviewer rates their tech level at the top and it is clear that they are not :shadedshu

    Thank goodness for the keyword search feature.....
