Review policy

I get a few requests a week to review various software, hardware, and service products. (Sadly, not many of these are aviation-related but maybe my luck will change). Inspired by DCRainmaker, who sets a super high standard for thorough and transparent reviews, I decided to set out my policy so I can just reply to those queries with a link to this page.

My policy is simple:

  • If you have something you want me to review, feel free to contact me.
  • If I think it’s interesting or cool, I may decide to review it. This review may be anything from a mention on Twitter to a full-blown magazine article, depending on how interesting or cool the product proves to be once I try it.
  • If the review item is a tangible physical object, such as a piece of hardware, I will return it when I’m done with the review. If you don’t want it back, I’ll give it away. If I like it enough to want one of my own, I’ll buy it.
  • If the review item is an NFR software license or access to a cloud-based service, I will use it for the review. If I decide I want to keep using it after the review period, I’ll buy it.
  • If the review item is a book, depending on the genre, format, and quality, I may keep it or give it away.
  • If it’s a consumable of some kind (like ammunition), then don’t expect to get it back.
  • I don’t accept payment for reviews.
