“Failed to use negative reviews”

Written on: 30/05/2014 by utCox213 (1 review written)

I have reviewed a product twice. Once as first impressions, next as a full review after significant testing. Both reviews were slightly negative due to quality issues. Neither review has been added to the product reviews on the site, of which all are very positive, or near so!

Thus they appear to be biasing the reviews positively.

The product was the Swann wildlife camera, which does a job and is interesting as a basic monitor but, on my model at least, the PIR is very erratic, triggering for a Hedgehog, then not for a fox. I actually watched the fox walk right past it twice with no effect, then, another time it will work

The camera has no user controls photographically, so no control over degree of compression and so on. The image quality is poor, even in full sunlight, being quite un-sharp. The IR image is adequate. Just.

I questioned Maplins on their new HAWKE wildlife camera. They were very edgy, but finally admitted i was exactly the same camera as the Swann, but £30 more.

So, appears to be a bit of sharp practice?
