eBay has begun to link to product evaluations from ConsumerReview.com as part of a deal the companies plan to announce Monday. eBay is linking to ConsumerReviews' assessments of computer, consumer electronics, sporting goods and photography products. eBay also links to reviews and product information from ActiveDecisions and Field & Stream magazine.
Typically written by consumers who have used or own the products they review, ConsumerReviews' evaluations contain customers' written comments as well as a scale rating for various criteria. Last year, the company signed a deal with Yahoo to provide its reviews in Yahoo's shopping area.
