Every so often, I whip up a quick write up reviewing a tool that I have been using for a while.
I'm not too crazy about product reviews when the reviewer has only used it for the day. I can certainly understand that most reviewers and journalists can't commit to putting in weeks of time into every product.
That being said, I would rather put out a review every 6 months with real world use rather than 1 review every month with a quick cursory use.
That is precisely why I consider these reviews after I have hands on experience for at least 1 month and preferably 2 months.
The format of the review is simple, I break the tool down into every day tasks and then comment on the results with a smiley or frowny face.
