  I see it as a nice way to help make sure DPR can keep bringing quality reviews and content.


Eric - an interesting take.  I view it as the exact opposite.  Now that DPR is directly doing sales - how can there not be a specter of bias -they want to sell gear now - how are you going to say something negative about something you're actually trying to sell?

They already sell advertising, so the conflict of interest is already there.  I don't see how this changes anything.

I think this method actually is better as it doesn't single out any one brand, it pushes sales of well rated products.  I.e. with this method DPReview doesn't care if you buy Canon, Nikon, or Pentax.  I think there is less bias inherent with this model.
