Unlike most product awards, the Viewpoints Reviewers' Choice awards are based entirely on consumer review sentiment, not expert testing or anonymous research surveys. Award eligibility is determined by positive consumer experience (as reflected in the overall product rating), reviewer reputation, review recency and review volume.
Viewpoints plans Reviewers' Choice awards in other home, beauty and money categories in the coming year.
Viewpoints (http://www.viewpoints.com) features 500,000+ consumer reviews on 35,000+ everyday products for the home and garden, health, bath and beauty, baby and kids, plus money categories. Both reviews and ratings are available free of charge and without registration.
