this kind of review is sponsored one?

not neutral lei
For any random reviewer, normally I would agree with you, but you see royfrosty's review track record here, my impression is that he's been fairly open with pros and cons, whether it's a self purchased product or products that were provided for review. So, don't think it's fair to say that.

Not all reviewers buy the product for review, mostly (tech sites and individuals alike) depend on review copies provided by the manufacturer, unless it's something they were going to buy in the first place...

IMO, nothing wrong with sponsored reviews as long as the reviewer states the level of sponsorship upfront, and has a good track record of honest reviews. Wait for the full review to be out before commenting? If the review isn't neutral, I think most of us will be able to smell any BS anyway.

this kind of review is sponsored one?

not neutral lei
A sponsored review is totally different from a review of a sponsored item. In this case, royfrosty is kind enough to actually take time to review a sponsored item. And trust me, sponsored or not, it takes a few days to test out the item and provide commentaries on the item, because I have tried reviewing a simple item like my MSI 980 Ti Lightning, and it takes effort. And more often than not, reviews put out by fellow HWZers might spiral into a flame war by other HWZers in the same thread if not careful.

How to tell a sponsored review from a review of a sponsored item lies in the choice of words used by the reviewer. How to detect biasness and neutrality is also in the very words the reviewer chooses. So please at least give the reviewer basic respect by waiting for his entire review to be published before commenting on his review biasness. If not, u can try review an item and see how easy or hard it is to craft out a review.

Just to set the record straight. Its not fully sponsored as per say. I still fork out some of my hard earn money to get this chair. And very much it is my will to push out reviews to us.

And no i dont do biasing.

If you think im not natural in any ways. Im sorry that i dont do good reviews and it has not been a viewing pleasure for you guys.

That title..

If you say it's the most advanced chair for that price point, maybe.

But if in general the most advanced chair of all the chairs in the world, I'm pretty sure it's not true.

Personally I find that the butt area, lower back, inner thighs are 'hotspots', somehow these areas generate loads of heat, thus generate loads of sweat. So perhaps tell us if the materials used 'wick' away heat/ dries out? Conditions set in non-aircon vs aircon, time of day, etc.

Well, the comma is there for a reason. No way i did say that this chair is the most advanced chair in the world.
