“ Internet site / Forum „
This concerns mainly the headphone board on avforum. I have been looking to buy headphones and went on the web to find advice.Now head-fi.org is the place to be for headphones but it is US based so when I found avforums, I thought great it is a british website to talk about headphones.Unfortunately, it is not a place to talk about headphones at all. When I was sharing links of reviews of heaphones from other sites, my post keep getting moderated. Basically, it didn't allow links to other websites. Then when I even posted reviews without link, I had got warned not to do it again.And it seems that the board are visited by a few regs who are pushing the same few products that are mates of the moderators. Or maybe site sponsors and if you give advice on better products abroad, you get moderated.
AVForums.com is a website dedicated to discussing electronic products. If you are looking for somewhere to help aid a buying decision, regarding electronic products, then this is one place you will want to visit.
Just about everything seems to be covered from TV's, game consoles, mobiles, computers and various other related products.
The thing I mainly like about this is that it is full of people who really know what they are talking about and there will always be someone who can provide you with useful information. Whether you want a simple answer or recommendation or if you want an in-depth tech-spec run down, you will most likely be able to find it.
To look at the various forums and other content on the website you don't have to be registered, but if you want to post a thread or reply to something you've seen, then you'll have to go through the normal signing-up process.
The site itself is easy to navigate, with everything having its own section. For example there is a mobile phones section and within that there is the major phone brands such as Nokia, iPhone, Blackberry, etc. So you will be able to post in the right section and get a response quicker.
Overall I would highly recommend having a look at this site if you are ever out of ideas on what to do to solve your electronic problem. It is free so it could do no harm to have a look if you're stuck and need a solution. I think you could probably find a solution that would save you a lot of money.
AVForums is a site I regularly visit and have done for many years. If you're into your electrical items or gadgets or are considering on purchasing one, this site is a must visit.
It's basically a massive user community divided into different areas of discussion. Topics range from TV's & DVD players to Home Cinema equipment & Photography equipment and alot more besides.
The site has a really good search facility, so you can search to see if a topic exisits already for what you wish to discuss, if not then you can create a new one under the relevent section. For example, if you want to get some advice on a model of TV you are planning on buying, you'll get loads of useful advice from actual users rather than sales people.
Now before I buy any piece of electrical equipment, I always go onto AvForums and see what people have said about the particular product already. As in general, an unbiased view is presented so it's quite reliable and you get a good view of the possible pros and cons.
So to sum up, I'd definetly say that before buying your next TV, Digital Camera or another electrical product, do check this site out.
