The "Review" link is gone!

  • desolder Top 10 Forum Poster Saturday, December 01, 2018 6:08 AM Reply

    What happened to the "Review" link? I was going to put in a positive review for a few products I just received. But the new website format no longer has a link to the review page. HALP!

    What's up with the scrubbed LED driver IC markings?
    What are they trying to hide?

    LMAO


    Good old DX. Amazing how they waited till they had every last bug worked out before launching the new site.

    ALWAYS ask questions about a specific item on its
    page. Scroll down and click on "Post a new topic".

    With the latest "site upgrade" DX's countdown to self destruction skipped a few numbers. With every update I'm once again amazed that DX places such a low value on things customers value, such as stability, reliablility, general security.

    DX has found a new way to deceive customers:
    Use reviews for different products that have not been bought
    by the person who wrote the review.

    More good news. Not only is the review link gone, but the "Discussions" product forum link is gone too. No way to ask questions or post info about items. 

    I always considered those more important than reviews, unless the reviews were from someone known/trusted. 

    More and more for the last year or so, I get the feeling that DX is run by someone who doesn't like DX. Or someone who's so incredibly stupid, they'd have to go up 2 levels to reach moron status.

    I also get the impression that DX is trying to wipe out any public interactions from their site. I feel like I'm reading a Sears catalog when I browse DX now. Those customer discussions always have useful info that can sway my buying decision.

    How does a Sears catalogue (or catalog) read? (Sounds like the start of a joke.)

    Speaking of stupid, has anyone seen this? vv It's on the right side of the home page.

    Wtf does that mean? Are there new arrivals that aren't shown? To anyone or maybe only some?


    It's not meant as sarcasm because I genuinely believe they are stupid enough to do that.

    I've changed my AdBlock setup so I can see product details again. Is the Review feature missing because DX IT hasn't got all features working straight away, as per previous updates?

    sheepish I forget this is an international audience. Sears catalogs were the original mail-order catalogs in the U.S. They have a few photos and some description of each item. But the internet is capable of so much more. DX really did a disservice by removing the product discussions from each item's page.


    Interetingly.... someone has posted all the Sears catalogs online from 1897 thru 1992

    Resulting in potential customers not knowing enough about items to be able to make an informed purchasing decision. Quite appropriate, then.
