To be honest, I think that it should be a board to it'self with main page listing, general hardware/software is getting a little too cluttered with subforums.

I guess it's for you to decide, but it really wouldn't hurt to put a new main category up, even if that meant merging a couple of the other forums into a singular forum (I'm thinking the two hosting ones).
I agree with the forum on the main index idea. Merging shared and dedicated hosting would probably be a better idea, that would make room for the reviews forum.

i said that before. even if they wernt merged it would be ok. some forums have loads of sections but still manage to keep it fairly clean

Yeah, having more forums on the index page doesn't make a forum look terrible or anything. I've saw forums with way too many, but I've also saw technology-related forums with a specific forum on the index for each component or so; such as "Motherboards and RAM", "Graphic Cards", etc. so you could go to the area that is most related to your problem. All we have really is the technicial forums and general computer hardware and software.

How do you guys expect to do reviews on products if you don't have them or access to them? You can't plagiarize other reviews and call them your own. A review has to be based on a hands on usage of the product. Otherwise it's second hand data. Review sites have worked out a borrow or buy arrangement with makers. You either have to buy it outright or return it after you're done.

We'd only review things we have...

Yeah if we can work out these sort of questions then I think its good to go

I think we should be able to review anything related to technology. Example, cell phones, computers, RAM, even technology customer service for companies.
