Totally Rad! recently released Replichrome, which is a collection of 134 film-look presets for Lightroom users that are targeted directly at fans of the popular VSCO presets. Totally Rad! set out to create a product that was clearly better than VSCO in nearly every important way: more films, better accuracy, and a…
Come on guys. This is a bit too much of a sales pitch. Why didn't you rather just post their press release without pretending this was a review.

But this kind of "product comparison" is totally not useful to the reader. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback Dirk.
I didn't categorize or title this as a review because it's not a review. It's also not a product comparison since I haven't used VSCO. I did, however, include my impressions from using the presets since I have used them. I like it and said as much. Sorry if that sounds like a sales pitch to you.
I could have just copied and pasted in their press release; however, I included my opinion since I had one to give. I also noted that I haven't used VSCO (even though it seems quite popular in the LR plugin circles) and that Totally Rad! was aiming to compete directly with VSCO.
The advantages/differences bullet point list comes Totally Rad!, which is why I said the points were "highlighted" by them. I think that's a relevant list for people who are users of VSCO or have been looking to purchase those presets.
When I really like a product, I'll be posting my opinion of it. When I hate a product, that'll show up here as well.
