Advanced Search is coming!

We've just implemented a major update on the site this morning, and you'll now find a new Search box on all the Forum pages to help you find the posts you're looking for.

We've also upgraded the Content Management System so we can add Advanced Search filters to each of the product categories within the Review section of the site.

At the moment you'll see just a Brand and Sort by pulldown menu in each category, but I'll be adding the new filters over the course of the next few days. I'll start with Televisions and then work my way through home cinema and hi-fi after that.

What you'll see soon is three Basic Search options at the top of each review landing page: Brand, Price and Star rating. There will then be a Show Advanced Options tab which, when you click on it, will display up to eight further technical specs to choose from.

So for example, if you're searching for a new TV, you'll be able to select the price and star rating you want, then further options within the Advanced Search filter such as the number of HDMI sockets, Full HD or HD-ready, screen size, type, digital or analogue tuner.

This will make even easier to use and help you find the best TV, hi-fi or home cinema kit for your money. So please bear with us as we implement the improvement. It'll be worth the wait!
