I am happy for the table to sit where it is, I have been and still am advocating for some more functionality.
The problem is, that each person who looks at the reviews may have their on special requirements, and what is important to them can be completely different to the sorting criteria currently provided.
I believe I have said previously that I would be happy if it was an optional hierarchical drill down selection process which allows people to refine searches if they choose.
Examples of the searches I may wish to do are:-
What if you have a space limitation? At present you can't search for models (of white goods or TVs etc) that fit into the available space, you have to check the measurements of each model in the comparison page.
What if you want a freezer with full face drawers?
What if you want a DVR with a BD player?
What if you want to search for tyres that perform best on a people mover?
What if I want a TV with built in Wi-Fi &/or DLNA?
Which air conditioner is suited to northern Australia with high humidity, warmer temps etc.?
All of these and similar optional searches, should be available to those who can access behind the paywall.
