Found a website that does helpful CPAP reviews
Hi all,
I found a helpful new website that does CPAP machine, mask, and other CPAP accessories reviews especially helpful for beginners like me, see link:
[commercial link removed - the removed website claims to be a "review" blog, but was really created to sell CPAP masks and other related products - there are products for sale scattered throughout his "reviews" (see my post here)]

Cheers
Steve
PS I hope it is okay to do this - post links to other websites

Since this is not a commercial site it should be fine.

Thanks

This appears to be a useful site -- maybe because it appears to agree with what I have learned by painful trial and error. Thanks for posting.

RE: Found a website that does helpful CPAP reviews
Nope. The site was created to generate traffic so that he can sell CPAP-related products. He has listings of products to buy (such as the product he just gave a review for) scattered all over the website. Hardly an unbiased "review" site and definitely commercial in nature.

People do this often on the Internet... they masquerade as a friendly site offering "reviews" of products. But then they have options to buy the products (in this case via an Amazon affiliate account) whereby they make money on each sale. I personally have no problem with someone doing that, but it makes the site commercial in nature, in violation of our forum rules against posting many types of commercial links.

This is different than simple Google ads, where the website has no control over which products or services are advertized. With Amazon affiliates like this, the website owner chooses exactly which products are placed for sale on their "review" pages. He's giving a review on a product, then offering that same product for sale (and he makes money off it if you buy it).

No big deal, but I had to remove the link to this commercial website per our rules.

Thanks for your understanding.
