User reviews, benefit or just distracting noise?

The recent initiative gives individual user of gear an opportunity to "review" or rather to express opinion (with grading) of particular piece of gear.

On the outside it looks like a great idea, however, in practice, I don't think that it brings much to the table comparing to usual forum posts related to the same piece of equipment already discussed. I guess the poll directed at users of particular gear would serve much better purpose, not mentioning that it would be contained in a single thread.

As someone asked: "Is it a year of plague?", I would like to see other opinions on the subject.

Sincerely

Richard
