Jeffs Reviews

I review computer hardware and software, consumer electronics, kitchen gadgets and tools. Almost all I know about computers comes from hands on learning on the internet on my own, no classes or college in computers. I have built a few computers on my own and do all the work for all the reviews I write, contacting the companies myself and asking for things I am interested in purchasing myself. I work hard to bring you my opinions of the things I review and hope you enjoy my writing.

Beware scam reviews

Hello, I know its been awhile but things have been happening in my life.

I recently came across a heart wrenching ad and wanted to share it with you, in summary.

"Review writer wanted, I need a person who can look at a sales page for a product and write a review making it seem like they have owned the product but without ever having laid eyes on it."

This is deplorable for the likes of me, the honest person who reviews products after working so hard to actually get them from the companies and check them out for real. I can understand how people want to find work but this sort of thing happens often in the writing business and I hate it, but of course I would.

These types of people who use internet browsing to review products can review anything they want and find all kinds of things to review without ever having seen the product or checked them out. I understand how they want to make money anyway they can but I cannot understand how anyone with morals or integrity could fall for this type of work.

When I review a product I always take my own product shots unless some sort of size problem prevents me or for movies I usually use the cover of the movie but I have honestly seen the product in my hot little hands and can tell you about it from real experience.
