    I find the reviews on this site really helpful, but sometimes I don't want to read the whole thing (but often I do), I just want the ratings.

    I would recommend putting the ratings at the top aswell as the bottoms

    -That's all

    I disagree personally... the text is more important than the rating.

    While I don't think people should go by the ratings alone, I do think some guidelines of what gets each award would be nice...

    Well, yes it is very helpful, I agree but its not always what you want, you sometimes just want an overview of how good it is a doing different things - all I am suggesting is putting the ratings at the top.

    Indeed. The rating is more to sort the crap and good carts. The text tells about for which people the cart is the best.

    so perhaps the reward it got could be added to the title of the page?

    Is it really that hard to scroll to the bottom of the page? You kids get lazier by the day.

    Each reviewer should do it according to their own preference. Then it's no problem?

    No one is forcing you to read the review if all you want is the rating. Just scroll down. Or if you absolutely have to have it sooner. Hit your Page Down key few times or the End key.
    And if you really don't want to read it, you should at least check the Pros & Cons section before looking at a rating.

    I concur. You read the review for a detailed look, and the ratings just summarize. And summaries go at the end. And if all you care about is the rating, just take 1 second and scroll.
