Advanced search is back!

Regular site visitors may have noticed we've been experiencing a few technical glitches this week, for which a thousand apologies. It was all down to the Advanced Search functionality we added in a site upgrade last week, which turned out to be a tad more complex than we'd envisaged.

However, the good news is that we've now identified and fixed the offending bugs in the system, and we hope the site is now working properly again. We'll be adding the Advanced Search filtering to each product category in Reviews over the next few days, so please bear with us while we get it all sorted.

I hope you'll find this new feature useful. It's something we planned at the time the site launched back in June, but it's taken a bit longer than we'd hoped to get it implemented. But now you'll be able to select the products you're looking for by price, star rating or brand in the Basic Search function, and by detailed technical specs in Advanced Search.

It's all part of our drive to make the site the best in the business, and we've got more exciting upgrades in the pipeline over the coming months. So have a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend, and if you're thinking of buying a new TV, hi-fi or home cinema over the holiday period, remember to do your research first here on

And if you have any technical queries, don't forget our ever-popular Forums – we'll be on hand to help you out. Enjoy the break.
