How Do DPR reviews affect your buying choice?

I mentioned in the comments section that the rather dismissive Pentax K1 ii review could affect sales, and that was questioned. Mm. Good question, too. How much would it affect you? Have offered some choices, but comments welcomed. In considering what a 'poor review' means, take it that DPR are basically saying 'not very good, others are better and so on)

DPR reviews and other reviews elsewhere do influence my buying decisions, but I will buy despite a poor DPR review because of reviews elsewhere (not necessarily on-line review sites, magazines etc. Personal recommendation for example)

I will buy a product that receives a poor review from DPR compared to it's peers only if it is a system I have bought into and it's pretty-much my only choice
