Thank you for sharing your opinion.
However, I'm afraid I am not sure how to count your post.

Shall we consider your post as a review and voting?
If yes, I'm afraid it is not complete enough to be taken as a review.

Would you be willing to post more complete review and
clearly cast your vote by specifying "yes" or "no"?
