Depends if you want qualitative or quantitative data. If your brain likes numbers, you want "quantity" data, like the above rating system. If your brain likes descriptions with words, then you want to "qualify" your review with wordiness. I like both. If you just use numbers, when I read a 1 or a 10 I know you like it or hate it but I don't know WHY.

Your review system looks good! I recognize you said quick and dirty, but to get us all on the same page please explain a bit more.
1 thru 3 seem clear.
4. Quality - Does this refer only to how well the hardware works, looks, or how long it lasts? Something else?
5. Rating - Needs explaining. Catch All for what is not covered in others?
6. Value - What one gets for the money? Money+effort(setup and practice, and buying other needed items integral to the trick)?

People write reviews to let people know their full opinion on a trick and to express why they like it. Reading some reviews actually convinces me to buy some tricks, you are able to see whats good about it and if it would fit your style etc.

I'm sorry but I really wouldnt pay much attention to someone giving all 10's on a review like this, there's no information.

this is still a good idea. but, we could still make reviews but at the beginning of them add this little marking scheme thing. that would work.
