Video Card Reviewer Ratings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Reviewing the Reviewers - I ask as their reviews drive us to madness at times. wheee.gif

Who is legit and fact based? When talking about Previews, Reviews, Game Benches? Who is card agnostic meaning they have no bias and who is clearly biased? thinking.gif

If we had to Rank them from Tier 1 (Very Good Technical Reviews) to Tier 4 (Bad Reviews) where would the following sites be rated at? (See chart below) feel free to chage what is needed in teh chart as makes sence, i just got bored at work tongue.gif

Anandtech
PCPER
Toms Hardware
Chiphell
Guru3D
TechPowerUp
HardwareCanucks
HardOCP
Hexus
Hardware.info

Must add Techspot.com and Xbitlabs.com to the list smile.gif.

The T1s for me are Techspot and Techpowerup. Tomshardware is not as bad as everyone keep saying, but I hate their website design.

For PSU reviews, I think hardwaresecrets.com is the best one, but not so good for everything else but articles.

I think it's hard to review the reviewers, because as I said before, some websites are very good at reviewing one thing, but they sometimes can measure CPU performance in games using 2560x1440 with a GTX580 (I'm looking at you, Kitguru)

since there are so many shady reveiwers out there, this is why i try to trust the voices of my fellow ocn users when looking to buy a product redface.gif
im sorry i dont have any more to input, ive seen too many mixed reveiws to trust ANY of them haha, but i hope you make headway in this thread! Perhaps those like me will learn who is actualy trust worthy.
