If we had an employee say something like this on social media they would be put on notice. When will employees learn that no matter what discussion they're involved in on the internet today they're representing the company they are currently employed with. One dumb comment could severely damage a businesses reputation. Now I'm not saying this guys comment was horrible. But he is coming across as a real jerk online, and that's no longer acceptable. In the past, it was OK to be a jerk online and a professional in the office. No longer is that the case.
While I dont always agree what cameras should be tested and are tested in every "shootout" IPVM does rotate whats in the groups enough to make it a non issue.
Hikvision is in about 90% of the shootouts these days, maybe hes still sore from all the cyber security news Hikvision's had to suffer from last couple of weeks.
"GURU" ... I hit the floor on that one!

If John were the type of person who would knowingly make false accusations to hurt Hikvision, then why wouldn't he just make a false test?
Oh boy, ego check. One who designs and or sells security equipment isn't a security guru. He's a guy who designs and or sell security equipment.
Replace "England" with "Hikvision" and here's how imagine the sign-off from their CEO looks on a conference call.
Hikvision employees are told what to say, when to say it, and to whom they can talk to. Disagree with Hikvision and they circle their wagons quickly. I'm amazed that they have produced enough Hikvision "cool-aid" (sic) for new employees in North America, and believe me, all have partaken of the HIK refreshment, and are now believers.
John is no longer with Hikvision....
Hi all, I usually don't weigh in in these, more because I am an more of an end user who got involve because the new salesperson at the camera company who set up our system also spec'd it. We were too small for the engineering company who was supposed to certify us to really look the system over... you know the drill... at any rate I now use the tech that they subcontracted to clean up the mess, and he loves Hikvision. I chide him abiut the Chinese watching my cameras, but they were inexpensive and have proven reliable. They are not the best, but they have proven reliable.
as far as them being included in most of the tests, they have a large part of the market-share and should be up there with the top 4 players. The IPVM audience should be aware of market trends and what is out there. If they have a camera of choice, John has always made an attempt to find out about them....
And so I say good job. You are giving the camera industry help in wading through the dark waters. No manufacturer is the best all of the time, but again John shouldn't let anyone tell him what to test
