"Price Paid" column in the HCL pages


I am looking to buy a digital camera so naturally the first place I hit is LQs HCL.

I am basing my search on balancing three criteria: Linux compatibility, features and price.

Since the advertised features of all the different brands are quite similar for a given price bracket (give or take a few bells and whistles) I have set myself a budget and it would be cool for example if when I click on the "Fuji" section I could see what people paid for their Fuji camera model in the first page where there are columns for Products, Views, Rating, Date etc so I could see which compatible cameras in the (eg) 500$ price range work well.

That way I could find out which Fuji cameras in my price budget play nicely with Linux and then head off to google to find user reviews of them to see how well they match up in performance/features with other models of similar price.

Also, from reading through comments in the HCL it seems that the "Rating" column is more a compatibility/ease of set-up rating than an actual product rating. If that is the case then maybe it would be good to have two rating columns, one for compatibility and another one for "How good is this product at its job" or some similar title.

Thanks as always for such a great website
