The Age Of The Roundup Review
This article is unusual as it does not cover the technical aspects of hardware but rather looks at the business perspective. It explores the potential effects roundups have on hardware companies and how they can be useful to those firms. It also gives reviewers some hints about their testing and writing methodology.
On the review side the scale and the scope of roundups are increasing. Frequent readers of the Madshrimps WebNews may have noticed that roundups are now available for more types of products and that the number of products compared in each roundup is rising. This trend will continue due to the demand from readers visible in popularity of group tests compared to single product reviews.
But more interesting are changes in the readership of those roundups. A potential indicator for the importance of roundups is the percentage of buyers who have read a roundup or are searching advice from someone who has. Madshrimps
