Why do people write bad reviews on products?

Okay, I read reviews all the time on things I plan or want to buy soon - much like many here, right? Now I just don't get why people post bad reviews on products that for example...don't meet their expectations? Nothing wrong with the product, works fine, and as advertised. But they get it home and realize that it's not compatible w/their operating system or doesn't score a high benchmark, can't get it to work - so poof - instant bad review. It's crazy, because most of the time if people just RTFM or description fron the company's website, they wouldn't be in this situation?!


Man, if your going to be a consumer, atleast be an informed consumer. :roll:

Anybody else notice these things or do I just need to switch to decaf?
