      But there is a difference between reviews and reports. A review is of
      something that we purchased and therefore can complain or not about
      the price. A test item is something we are given and are supposed to
      be looking at how they perform in their stated use. While I feel the
      remark about the space they take up is something that should be
      addressed, I personally would not go into whether it is over-priced
      or not when I did not pay for it.

      That is just my take on it, not an official statement by any means.
