Some of the reviews on Amazon and other web sites can't be trusted. Amazon has started posting reviews by people who have been given the product for free as along as they promise to post a review. Not the most objective way to do things. I would think that JOF members would give objective, pro-and-con reviews to products of interest to us all.

I find actual user reviews a great resource for making purchasing decisions. Especially, when it comes to reliability of a product long term.

As it stands, it is very difficult to locate input\feedback from the forum members on different products and services.

Not sure how we go about urging the forum "leaders" for such changes but it would at least be nice to know who thinks it would or would not benefit the group.
This would be perfect for a Social Group topic. Why not start one.. call it "Product Reviews" or something like that. The members can use the subject line to name the product (example) "Renogy 100 watt solar panel kit" or "Comfort Zone Portable 1500 watt Heater". Members that have additional information will add a post to it. Make the first product review entry as a guide. Why not start one now. Take a look at some of the social groups and get some ideas... I have the WiFi Extenders and RVing with SOLAR social groups to give you an idea or 2. I have a few products I would post to it.

Agreed. Check out the Community SOCIAL GROUPS and create one as Don suggested.

That may be a good place to put it. If someone wanted to peruse it looking for a product. I would thing the actual discussions on Jayco models and such would stay on the regular forum.

Yes on product reviews. I could write a book. Would love to see dealer reviews to if not already on here. I have plenty of input on numerous ones.

I would have thought many more would have voted. Last count, there were almost 250 views. Still, a vast majority who did vote support adding a product review section. To be honest, I did not expect so much opposition.

I realize the standard engine that this site runs on probably does not support the more advance features other sites provide. But just having a dedicated section so one can find such reviews seems innocuous enough.

Sorry if I have offended anyone or stepped on anyone's toes. Its just a poll to see how others feel about such a change.

Just because someone does not respond positively does not mean they don't want it.

Some just don't have strong feelings either way. I can get product reviews many places and when in the market for something, will read them anywhere and everywhere.

I just don't understand the need on this one. A forum, in and of itself, is in essence a multi-layered review site. We all share our knowledge, experience, and opinions on products, brands and properties in a sorted by topic format. How could / would a "product review" section do this any better? I have not yet had to make a purchase decision without already having adequate information available here on the JOF either through an already posted topic or through directly posting a question of my own. I'm predicting a convoluted mess in short order on this one as things would all get lumped together under a generic topic. Be careful what you wish for...

Another forum with identical format run by same people has this feature, and it is very well used. I personally like it. People come here by the flocks with those "opinions please on this model" threads a LOT. It's sometimes their first post. People come here more for seeking info than for Facebook type crap I think. They start off wanting info, good bad and ugly. That may lead to other general chat, but so a good observation on how a lot start off their membership here.

I realize this is a bigger outfit, but man they have some sections on this forum. I still hang out there a lot just for info plus I have a lot of people I stay in touch with over there. Same forum format, lots more info due to requests just like this.
