I always request free review copies of products, outside the IM niche, I almost always get them. There is no problem with getting a free copy to review, but due to ftc regulations, make sure within your review that you notify your readers that you got a free review copy of the product.
I get review requests from time to time with my blogs. I always am willing to do the review, but I let them know that 1, I get full access to the product, and 2, my review will be based on my experience, and I wont promote something that I don't believe in to my readers. I have done a few (although not many ) negative reviews because of how bad the product was. It upsets some product owners when you do that, (especially if they give you a free copy), but I am blogging for my readers not for the product owner.
