Farba Research Product Reviews

Copyright 1999-2009 Farba Research All Rights Reserved

Farba Research is not in the business of doing product reviews. However, we do occasionally post a review of a product that we use, if that product seems noteworthy (usually meaning especially good or especially bad).

Each of these product reviews is strictly the opinion of the reviewer, who is not necessarily a Farba Research employee. Of course, we would not post a review that we thought was unfair or wrong, no matter who wrote it.

In the table below, Date means the date of the most recent update, and Rating is just whatever short-version will fit in the table. We post our experiences here as soon as possible, so the short-version rating will be all you initially see. As time permits, we then add a separate detailed review page for a particular product (which will be indicated by the fact that the Product Reviewed name will be visibly shown as a clickable link).

As a visual aid, the ratings in the table will be separated into broad general categories by these background colors:

Green means a great product, with no significant problems.
Cyan means a great product, but with one or more significant problems.
Yellow means a usable product, but with one or more severe problems.
Red means we would avoid this product entirely, if we could.
