I was thrilled to read about your series of polls since I have lots of opinions about the magazine. Just finished the poll on equipment articles, but there was no opportunity to include my own comments, so here they are.
Reviewing equipment has the potential to be very useful to potential purchasers. But to do so one has to be willing to include some negative findings. Many of the articles are so uniformly positive they are not useful. I can get a list of features and superlatives from the manufacturers. What I really need are some honest critiques.
