How to write your own user review

When writing a review, please focus on the performance of the product and how well it meets your requirements and expectations. Keep the language you use straightforward and easy to understand. Once you've filled in the form, submit it and it will go into our moderation queue. As we are using an external company to moderate all user reviews for us, it may take up to 48 hours for your review to appear on the site. However, you will receive an email confirming your review has been submitted.

Once the review is published, it will appear on the user reviews page with your scores. At the top of that page you'll see the average customer rating based on all the reviews submitted. One thing to note: if the product in question isn't yet in our database, you will not be able to submit a review. We are working hard with all manufacturers to get the database up to date as quickly as possible, but we do rely on them giving us the relevant information to do so.

Approved User Reviewers

And the more reviews you submit, the greater your chances of becoming one of our Top Contributors, with a badge alongside your name. You will also have the chance to qualify for Approved User Reviewer status if we think your reviews are up to scratch.

Andy Clough

Andy is Global Brand Director of What Hi-Fi? and has been a technology journalist for 30 years. During that time he has covered everything from VHS and Betamax, MiniDisc and DCC to CDi, Laserdisc and 3D TV, and any number of other formats that have come and gone. He loves nothing better than a good old format war. Andy edited several hi-fi and home cinema magazines before relaunching in 2008 and helping turn it into the global success it is today. When not listening to music or watching TV, he spends far too much of his time reading about cars he can't afford to buy.
