How do you decide which new reviews to read?

- Kira - - Kira -
A lot of new reviews come out everyday. How do you decide amongst them? Do you read them all or just select ones? If just select ones, how do you pick?

I noticed my reviews of more, or I assume more, lusted after items seem to get more comments and votes. Just wondering if people are picking based on things they want or what everyone's process is.

Tried to think of as many as possible, but comment for the elusive "other."

I read them all because I subscribe to the RSS feed, but I don't always vote or comment on all of them. It really depends on my mood. There are certain users I try to catch all of their reviews, but it just really depends on how much other stuff I've got going on in the day.

ToyTimeTim ToyTimeTim
I read mostly reviews on product I would/have used and those from contributors I know share the same interests. I will read review that give a great product a low rating and those with witty/funny titles as well.

I would love to read more but there are just to many coming out each day.

Rarity Rarity
I can't say that I read them all but it really depends. If I'm looking for a specific product I'm interested in, I'll read a few reviews. I'll also read reviews for the more expensive products, those written by contributors I'm following, other reviews written by newer reviewers, and sometimes whatever I stumble upon. I can't find it in me to sit through too many reviews at once so lately it's been more of a random occurrence.

Love Perpetua Love Perpetua
I can't read all reviews, but I usually read ones for products I'm interested in, reviewers whose writing style I enjoy/have similar tastes, or ones that have witty titles. Basically anything that catches my eye will be something I'll read.

LilLostLenore LilLostLenore
I read reviews for a lot of diff reasons.

Lily Night Lily Night
I usually pick out any reviews that catch my eye. Mostly this is because they're for a product that I would want to buy, or something like a product I'm interested in. Sometimes though I'll read a review for the fun title, or simply because the product is new to me and I'd like to know more about it.

I read only reviews that I'm voting for (the weekly poll) and ones I'm interested in buying.

i read reviews of whatever catches my eye!

i sometimes read based on vrooms though, they're what get me truly interested.

I usually only read reviews by people who I know write well. Main reason being that I use to read a range of peoples reviews and because I gave one reviewer a lower vote (because the review wasn't that grand), they got nasty back. I ended up with a very low vote on a review which had 70 EU votes. It was a retelliation vote.
So thanks to that miserable person, I only stick to people I know now!

I only read reviews of toys I'm considering getting - I don't have time to read everything!

I read anything and everything. I don't mind reading things to find out if I might like them or not.

lilly555 lilly555
I read reviews based on whether I'm interested in the product, the category it's in, and in some cases who the reviewer is.

I read like 95% of reviews. I'm currently like a week behind. i skip reviews on over reviewed products like the hitachi usually.

I read lots of reviews for all kinds of reasons. It just depends on the review. I like to read all of them but do not have that kind of time.

I have alerts set for reviews on products that have caught my eye, either because I'm interested in them or because they look so ridiculous that I just have to know more about them. I'll read other reviews as well, but it's more random. Sometimes a title will catch my eye, sometimes it's a new product I haven't seen before, and sometimes I'll just read something for the hell of it. I'll often skip over lingerie reviews in favour of toy reviews, I just find toys more interesting to learn about.

I used to read every single review. Impossible now. Now I read very few and the reasons vary

SMichelle SMichelle
I read reviews for products that interest me, or that I think will interest loved ones. I also read reviews if the title catches my eye. And I try to read at least some of the first-timers reviewers, because I know it can feel discouraging when no one rates or comments on your reviews.

a combination of what's on my wall, the title and the product.

If its something I like I will read every review available but if the product is meh kinda want it but could live without it then I only read higher reviewers.

Interesting question. For me it's mainly the title and/or photo, whether they catch my eye. I find myself looking at all different products, even things I would never use.

I read the ones for items that I'm interested in possibly buying. I also read some reviews for interesting looking items, just to see what people think about them.

PrettiGirlRock PrettiGirlRock
I read reviews based on things I want to purchase or would strongly consider purchasing. I often go for the ones that have a a title that grabs me or with a reviewer that has a quality writing whether the reviewer is highly ranked or not.

Right now all my sex toys are too loud for my dorm situation, so a particularly low bees rating piques my interest every time.

I read reviews for things that I'm interested in getting and for ones that I might like based on looks.

I surf the site based on products i might be interested in/ or i want to learn about. Then i generally read all the reviews to get a wide idea of what others think.

Azule Azule
Usually it's a lot of these things since I'll start by category then go by what I want in that category and then what has the best sound and strength features within that, then I'll get distracted and just browse.

calliope calliope
Pretty simple for me a product intrest me I read a few reviews. If I stay intrested and plan to order it I read all the reviews unless there are a ton. In which case I skim through some or skip on reading older or not very reliable ones.
