I used CNET's reviews in putting together my new home audio system after my 90's vintage Infinity Ovation speakers were fried by a power surge at my house. I wound up with a beautiful system built around a speaker brand recommended by CNET (ELAC) that I had never heard of, which balances terrific sound within a reasonable budget. Since then I am consulting CNET as a trusted source for lots of different gadgets, and reading the reviews just for fun. Thanks CNET!
Love CNET...but... app could be better and enough with the none tech stuff
One feature that is missing is the ability to follow certain reviewers, I would love to follow Dong Ngo just because I love router reviews and I trust his opinion.
I am also unable to go to a dedicate car review section and half of the high end items I look up don't even have reviews.
Also one thing that really annoys me is how CNET has tried to become a news app.
Cnet listen to your audience we want TECH! Only Tech! Leave the politics and trending bullcrap on your affiliated news station because we don't care. All we want is computers, appliances, networking, cars, etc..
No twitter, politics, and other non tech related stuff and please leave the "Teens fight at school and took a video and posted it on the internet" crap off the website and app. You're a tech site, so be a tech site.
Washing Machine Reviews?
The APP hasn't changed very much but the content has gone wildly afield with washing machine reviews (really?), cars and other consumer goods.
Judging by the writers often gushing reviews a lot of manufacturers probably don't need a PR department but it's somehow reassuring to know that C/NET can't seem to find a poorly designed or manufactured product anywhere.
One star for content and three stars for functional APP averaged out to two stars.
