These reviews were written a good while before the problem was known.
I'm sure this will be noted in the "cut, copy, paste".
Also the bug shouldn't effect the review score if the replacement boards are otherwise the same design.
True, but they just linked yesterday to the web review, and they certainly could have made a note on that. I'm not saying that scores are out of line, I'm sure they are correct. But that's like writing a review for a hydrogen cell powered car. I'm sure it's great, but if I can't buy it then it does me no good whatsoever.
