Along with all the changes taking place recently I hope you all have noticed the Review Section located on the Tech-Forum homepage. While it may take you a few tries before you actually find a review, we do have a few posted. Our goal is to have a Review Section that will provide you with an honest, well written evaluation on the newest products in a variety of PC and Tech related categories. In order to achieve this goal Tech-Forums needs to assemble a team of honest reviewers who are knowledgeable in these areas.
We are looking for Reviewers in every PC and Tech related area. The last thing I want to do is refuse a review sample because we don't have a qualified reviewer to handle the evaluation. While having the latest up to date equipment can be a plus, it is not always required to review a product. Many review samples are designed to work with older tech as well as the latest and greatest.
To be perfectly honest, it is easier to obtain review samples for US based reviewers. This does not mean you have to be from the US in order to be a reviewer. It just means I'll need to find manufacturers that have offices in your country or that are willing to ship to your country.
You must be able to write a review that is interesting and professional. We will edit every review as needed but you must have some writing skills.
You must own a camera or have access to a camera that can take a clean, sharp image. A tripod is almost mandatory and some small studio lamps (optional) can make a big difference. You must also have a basic knowledge of image manipulation using a program like Photoshop, Paint.Net or The Gimp.
Some products may require some specialized test equipment in order to evaluate them. You will be required to own or have access to any equipment needed for the product you have requested to review. A Multimeter, dB meter, Digital Thermometer are a few examples of some of the equipment that may be needed.
You must be an honest, well respected member of the Tech-Forum Community. I won't specify a required post count because 500 meaningful posts are as good or better than a 1000 Hello's. I will say this, the Tutorials and Member Review Sections are a great place to show off your skills.
These are not paid positions though you will be able to keep the majority of the review items. If an item must be returned to the manufacturer you will be informed before the review process begins.
