The "Review" link is gone!

    WTF?


    Am I crazy? There are new reviews posted on Dec 3rd, but I could find no way to make a review on product pages. When I clicked on the thimbnail of the 1st new review, I got a 404 error page. If I'm not crazy, than the only explanation I can think of is that DX is writing it's own reviews.

    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
    Ask them.

    Its own reviews. Maybe they're just backlogged reviews finally being approved en masse.

    desolder's first post was on Dec 1. How could someone have written a review after that if the link was already gone?


    Do you think DX used unposted reviews and just changed the dates? Why would they do that?

    When I clicked on the thimbnail ...


    You've been Dvoraked! I have the I and U keys swapped. It's the only change to the standard Dvorak keyboard that makes a significant (though small) difference to typing efficiency.


    I just thought the "posting" date would be the date they were approved, which explains why there are gaps in the "posted" dates, such as nothing between 15 and 27 Nov, but many on those dates.

    Can someone explain how sku.476639 has been reviewed even though it's on page 5 of new arrivals? At most it could only have been listed 3~4 days ago. 


    The reviewer must be in the witness protection program since his/her name isn't posted. I can't help wonder if his/her initials are D X?


    Btw, click on the (1 vote) link right below the title or the "Reviews" link just below the "Related Products" images or you won't find the "review" at all.

    Apparently you can still post reviews at VolumeRate. I just submitted a review for sku.535268 so we'll find out soon enough if it gets approved.

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

    Do you see a mismatch of the thumbnails to the large pics for sku.535268?

    @desolder.


    If you're still interested, I was checking prices on  sku.39584 when I tried clicking on the reviews (votes) link just under the title. There was a "Write Review" button there now. Same for another item, but I don't know if that goes for everything or not. 


    Dam. I forgot to see if the "Discussions" feature is back. I'll post back here if it is.


    EDIT - I forgot to mention the clicking on that button gives a pop up telling you to sign in. I was too afraid to do that.  lol


    Oh and nope. No "Discussions".


    RE-EDIT - There are still no reviews posted from Dec. 3. I don't know if it actually works now or nobody knows it's there/never tried to review anything.


    Here's your chance for fame and glory. Be the very first person to post a review in 2019. :)

    Thanks for the heads up gasbag11! I see the Write Review button for sku.535268 too. However I don't see the review I wrote over on VolumeRate. I guess I'll have to re-submit it on dx.com.
