Default Credibility of "steves-digicams.com" reviews?

On 4/16/03 I notified '[email protected]' that one of the reviews at steves-digicams.com is not accurate. Mistakes in the review make the product to be "perfect for anyone", "intelligent" and "inexpensive".

However my experience with the product is that it is not so perfect and intelligent. It is even expensive because a bad design of the product can shorten the lifespan of some accessories. This product should be avoided by many potential buyers!

I have not received any response from steves-digicams.com yet!

Please advice.

You need to be a LOT more specific if you want me to check for a possible error in a review. You also need to ask me, not my advertising person, questions about the reviews.

I couldn't find any better email address that time so I emailed '[email protected]' in believe that it is a correct one and if not that you communicate with each another. I was wrong.

My email was very specific addressing one of the main purpose of your web, reviews.

I will forward you the email.

I want Steve to take a first look at it before I blast the product here. You are welcome to email me and I will forward you the email I sent to Steve.

in defence of steve (not that he actually needs it!)

i have read nearly all of his reviews through sheer boredom and also to understand digital photography

his reviews are clear, consise, and are unbias

i have reccomended the site to several friends looking to buy cameras

This was about a supposed problem with the Lightning Pack 4000 NiMH battery charger when used with AAA size cells. I did not use AAA cells when we reviewed it, it worked fine with AA cells however.

Wonder what happen with the Rayovac 1-hr charger as well? It put out even more current, and suppose to be compatible with AAA as well... (hey they also sell them at Walmart on the same rack) :P :P :P

May be one should not close the cover, at least there's none on the Rayovac, Or may be its brand are designed to take the beating?(The chargers have thermal shut-down though) :lol:
