Review copies

I've previously published nonfiction books where getting reviews is not so difficult, and reviews don't matter much anyway.

I would like to ask about your experience fetting reviews for fiction.  How many review copies did you send out, what were the results (if any.)

The way I see it, it makes sense to try for maybe ten, including PW and LJ which will drive sales, and a couple of others just to have a review from a third party for the back of the book.  Sending more review copies only seems like a waste of money since many of those books will end up sold on Amazon as used copies. (In spite of the rule against it, ARCs do end up on Amazon!)
