Perhaps it's time to rethink the policy that did away with the "star" rating system. I know it was eliminated because there were continual complaints and some of it was downright nasty, though to be honest some of it was justified and I thought at the time that they "threw out the baby with the bathwater." (I was an AVSIM reviewer myself at the time)... But with only a Gold Star it really is an "all or nothing" kind of thing. Whether we should be or not, the fact is that most of us are swayed by it when we see it in a review. Most of the time it's fully earned but as in this case, some of them are questionable. I own at least one product I would not have bought without the Gold Star and am disappointed enough with it that I virtually never use it.How about a sort of "triage" system? Nothing can be completely objective but you can usually get a fairly good consensus that something is: 1=below par 2=a good product that meets reasonable expectations 3=an outstanding product that exceeds reasonable expectations. Then reserve the Gold Star award for something that absolutely stands out - AFTER it's been on the market for a while. You can then check the product forum to see what kind of feedback the customers are giving - take time for a couple of reliable people to try it out and compare their experience with the reviewers - and then if there's agreement, reprint the review with the Gold Star as a real reward to the producer for giving the community an outstanding product that goes "above and beyond."I know some will argue that a 2 would be "the kiss of death" for a product but it doesn't have to be that way. If you put the rating in the text of the review instead of at the top, as with the old star system, then most people would read the whole review and get a balanced perspective on its merits. Even a product with a "1" would still have a fair chance, as people would read the whole review and be able to see why the reviewer judged it as "below par."Ianps. Maybe we should make this topic a new thread seeing as this one was specifically talking about one review and one product

i suggest you visit the support forum and see feedback and questions -http://forum.iemit.comyes, see manual for more details -https://freedownload...tsv2_Manual.pdfnot sure what you mean ... but visually a HUD is a display over the windscreen. there are details in the above linked manual.see above linked forum for comments and talk about the plane.navigraph has supported the feelThere commmon database for about five years. the ejet has full SID/STAR support. see above linked forum for comments and talk about the plane.--

Interesting to see links from scoob to the forum he polices. However any technical comments and requests there are soon stopped. I've repeatedly pointed out to feelthere the errors in the flight director and autopilot roll commands but it gets ignored even when you provide evidence in support. I cannot understand why the same developers can get something right in some products and wrong in others.In e-jets the AP/FD roll cue is 100% overdone, yet in every other ft product it is correct. In the ft Airbus the FMGC is buggy and cannot cope with en route arrival changes, yet 737 PIC and others show they can get FMC route calculations right.I bought e-jets v1 and generally liked it but until they sort out the roll cue I won't be buying v2.Kevin
