For those of you who do extensive research before a purchase (we know who we are), here's a site that will save you some time in your quest. Buzzillions captures product reviews from retail sites and puts them together, so you don't have to visit individual sites to read what actual purchasers have to say. In addition to the reviews, Buzzillions posts a "Review Snapshot" that summarizes the pros, cons and what have been identified as the best uses for the products. The site also offers side-by-side com-parisons; product ranking; a "narrow" tool that lets you drill down by brand, price and other product features; links to retailers; and, for some product categories, the ability to see reviews by the reviewer's personality type.
