aren't there 2 types of review?
If you're reviewing to give Anker private feedback, you're working to iron out issues (documentation, controls, form, function, performance) before they are finally fixed and made in bulk.
If you're reviewing to give to public feedback at launch, so there are "neutral" opinions so as soon as the market can buy there is some review to aid making you more comfortable.
These are different purposes and phase in product release.
So @ndalby is saying he did a review to give feedback to Anker. The "power user" type program, is more for giving feedback to the public?
