When reviewing a product, please please please refrain from starting a review with: "I haven't used this yet, but...." I read a lot of customer reviews online when I'm shopping for something new and I can't even begin to tell you how many people are reviewing a product they've never used. I especially hate the reviews that tell me about how it looks. Looking at it (even if it's just a picture) is all a person can do when shopping online. I want to know if it works. How it works. If you like it based on more than it arriving in the mail. Not that you like it because it looked nice when you pulled it out of the box.
