There are many sites out there where people can go to get reviews and opinions about various products they may be looking to buy and invest in. To be honest, my first stop is usually Amazon these days for the product reviews. But even though those reviews are pretty good and I get a lot out of them, its still seems to lack something. Text reviews can sometimes lose something in the translation. What would be great would be a video review form real people that have used the product, and thats exactly what San Diego startup ExpoTV does.
ExpoTV is a user generated content site where the users submit video reviews of products, everything from cars to coffee makers. Users who submit videos get points that can be applied towards products in the Expo store and also get entered into monthly giveaways, this months is the Kindle. Content can also be syndicated to different channels like YouTube to extend the reach of your review fame. 😉
Here is a short review of a Canon Digital SLR that I found on the site. It’s nothing fancy, but it gets the point across and you can actually see what the reviewer says and not what they tried to get out in text.
They also have a section called Most Wanted where you can see if you own any of the most wanted items for review and if so earn extra reward points toward cool stuff in the Expo store.
Overall, I think it is a really nice concept and I look forward to using it in the future when I an contemplating a purchase. ExpoTV is one of the startup companies showcased at the upcoming TECH cocktail San Diego.
