Write a Good Gadget Review

By | February 23, 2012

Laptops, Smart Phones and Apps, oh My! There is so much new technology to coming out but it seems that as soon as a new gadget is released, we absolutely need it and cannot remember a time when we survived without it. Each gadget release offers a solution to a different problem. Gadget reviews are based on the opinions of someone who has tried the gadget and therefore, it is necessary to choose a gadget based on how it has worked for a trusted source. When a new gadget comes out, it would be hard to find people you know that have spent enough time with the gadget to provide an educated and experienced opinion. A good gadget review provides this information and can be used in a decision making process. After all, every bit of good information gathered, helps. And an informed decision is one step closer to the right decision. Sometimes the gadget review is written about the product, sometimes it is written about the supplier, and sometimes it is written about the manufacturer. These reviews will have already separated the most useful and popular points from those that are longwinded and technical. Opinions can be biased based on the gadget’s features, because what one person needs can be entirely different to what another person would need. So a good review will have more than one person providing their opinion. The good gadget reviews provide the freedom to chat with the author or reply to others opinions. This makes the review fun to follow and would prove to be more useful with time.

Follow these useful pointers on what a good review has, and you will be well on your way to writing some of the best gadget reviews:

1. A messy article is useless when all the good points are hidden inside. How can a reader trust an unorganized gadget review? If your article is short in length, you still have to a try to clean it out, leaving only the most relevant points.
2. Provide your reader clear direction by demystifying the facts. Separate your facts and list the most important ones first. Listing provides a clear read and an uncluttered understanding. Differentiate the duds from the studs. If it’s a review for duds, be merciful to your readers by including a few studs. Evaluate each one and document your findings.

  • Comparing two digital cameras with different attributes is a great example of a product review. The cameras may differ in pixels, in memory capability and many other factors.

3. Add a visual to the product. If you are going to upload a pic of the gadget, be mindful of clarity and size. Sometimes glare can work on a gadget to give it a sleek effect. Use your discretion when focusing on this feature.
4. Gadgets evolve on a daily basis. The more you stay on top of the latest releases, the more effective your articles will be. Twitter, RSS Feeds and Digg are excellent sources of information pinging. Use these resources along with the good old fashioned methods like actually reading the daily gadget news.
5. Video demonstrations about your gadget are easier to portray rather than trying to break it down in sentence form on paper. This may capture the interest of your reader and will show that you care and are thorough in providing the information.

Gadget reviews are more effective when the writer can relate to the reader. A great way to relate the readers is to provide your experience with handling the particular gadget. Include your thoughts before the gadget, during the gadget and through the upgrades you decided to invest in. If the reader can put relate to your article, you have won them over!
