Review articles

I'm curious what the MR users think of the review articles, since they seem to be an increasing trend. Do you find them helpful? Do they clutter up the site/homepage/sidebar? Thoughts?

I'm not sure whether or how much I like them just yet and was interested in reading others' opinions.

I have enjoyed reading them so far. I feel like some of the other websites I go on only focus on the "innovated" high end stuff that most people don't have any interest in, so it's nice to see some reviews of cases and the like here.

I've like them. They're insightful and easier than always linking to another review site.

I like them. I think people here benefit from well written reviews if they want to read them. They seem like a natural addition to the site.

I like them, I think that add to the overall value of the site (spoken as a member not as a moderator).

I like them. They make a welcome break from recycled rumours (not that I am complaining about rumours on macrumors). I am not so sure about the front page layout though and how they are presented. It's a minor quibble though, which is personal and subjective.

I like the fact they exist. They are nice and informative.
I dislike the fact they are lumped in with the Mac and iOS blog articles. I think these kind of articles need their own category for easy access.

I'm ok at the organization, I don't see any issues of how they are now.

That admin of this site are working on a solution for this issue. And I must say I really like their way of dealing with it.
