User reviews here are too subjective to be useful, whether they are written by the fans or the people who have bought models with problems and need to vent.

Yes. Mostly they should probably be called "User Opinions" not "User Reviews".

There are people on these forums who are willing to spend time writing a fair and helpful view but they would get lost in all the extremes.

On the other hand, user reviews on sites such as Amazon show the views of average buyers with nothing to be fanatical about or an axe to grind, so they come across as trustworthy. So user reviews in themselves are helpful, but not here - maybe instead we need short 'official' dpr reviews that members can comment on in the forums?
