I'm guessing it has something to do with viewership as well. If I have a website that pulls in 100 hits a week, or a month, then there isn't any chance of getting test unts from companies. It wouldn't be worth their shipping costs.
That one of the reasons I try to take part on these type of forums. I take time to learn about my target audience, collect possible viewers for my site, and of course gain and dispence knowledge!
I find the hardest part about writing a review is walking a fine line between being professional about it, and being personal with it. Sometimes, when I am reviewing really crappy media, I have to try really REALLY hard not to get sarcastic! LOL!
