After a short period of testing the post-screening mechanism was successfully implemented at SE engine. As a result about 10% of all ratings will change their values slightly in the nearest future (at least one grade should be submitted for a device to recalculate its rating with post-screening). This adjustment will not be dramatic though to change relative positions of devices. Low's and high's of ratings will be affected to a grater extent. Screen-shorts of the ratings as of 2011.04.03 are saved in Appendix for future references and comparisons.
What will be changed substantially is reliability of ratings. Now it will take less grades to achieve 5% reliability and as a consequence - reliable ratings will be available sooner. This is the main purpose of SE post-screening mechanism.
Among other news - relocation to a faster server (probably you noticed some downtime during last week). This will also help to achieve better and faster user experience while interacting with SE service.
