Funny story - we were shopping at Amazon for a pizza cutter a week ago. Some reviewers for Amazon's "top selling" pizza cutter actually ADMITTED they had been given this supposedly state-of-the-art pizza cutter for FREE if they agreed to submit a product review. They'd say something like "even if I had paid full price for this item, I'd still give it five stars...." (yada, yada,yada).

Yeah and they probably fear giving a bad review that they might not get more free offers. Marketing psychology at it's best!

Another one stumbled across via CL:

http://www.naxa.com/nt-52.html#1

Looks good on 'paper' with component output (1080p?) and USB port for recording and playback options. Unfortunately poor, albeit dated, reviews; appeared to be software buggy. Looks like Walmart, Frys, Radio Shack, Amazon, TigerDirect, etc.

Interesting I keep finding these sketchy-reviewed boxes sold at Walmart on Craigslist...
