    A little eye-opener about pay-for-review in general... this type of practices aren't uncommon in the security world....
    Through the years I have seen a lot of website who review security products not based on what actually can do ..but on some other factors.....

    Yes, unfortunately, the concept of paying to get a better review has been around as long as reviews have... It makes it pretty difficult to find unbiased reviews.

    For hardware, this is a big problem. But with software, most products have free trials. The best review is to download a trial and put it through the paces yourself. :)
