If you have solid original content, then you should be OK. However if it looks to SE's that it is a "thin affiliate site" that doesn't really add any value as compared to other sites also promoting the same product, then you probably got hit by this.

Oh, and I should mention that my site has 10x more information about the particular subject and topic, than the guy who ranks above me.
I followed the guidelines and "built the page for the user". I have over 500 comments on that particular page in question from people thanking me for the information, and engaging in intelligent discussion about the topic.
