Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

At what reputation levels do:

  • I finally see /review for the first time?
  • I get "upgrades" to review? (And, what are these "upgrades"?)

I know not all the tabs are visible from the get-go, and because users don't just automagically see /review when they first register, but I can't seem to find the rep thresholds in /privileges.

/review is accessible to all users, but does not appear in the top bar until the 500 reputation milestone. While anybody can view recent reviews, the actual review queues are inaccessible until you gain the appropriate amount of reputation. The reputation requirements for each queue correspond to the reputation required to perform most of the actions in that queue, with the exception of the first and late posts that both require 500.

For reference, the current reputation thresholds and their linked privileges are as follows:

Note that on beta sites, the reputation requirements for privileges and the /review queue are lower (Access Review Queues is currently at 350). Also, on Meta Stack Overflow, the First Posts and Late Answers queues don't exist, so /review won't show up in the top bar until you have 2000 reputation.

This answer is exactly what I was looking for and quite helpful. Thanks. – octopusgrabbus Jun 8 '12 at 21:24
In case others don't see the edit, recently (2013 Jul, AFAICT) the thresholds were changed for First Posts and Late Answers from 125 to 500, and introduced (I think) to beta sites as 350. – Andrew Cheong Jul 26 '13 at 21:36
