Do you seriously think Consumer Reports would have much of a
readership if, for example, when reporting on say a Ford car they said
all Fords suck?
Actually, Consumer Reports did something worse to me once. I was
working for a marine radio manufacturer at the time. Consumer Reports
reviewed a collection of comparable marine radios. One particular
model from one vendor was praised with a glowing report. Our model
was treated little better than garbage. There was just one problem.
Behind the cosmetic plastic escusion, decals, stickers, and package,
both radios came from the same Japanese manufacturer and were
internally identical. The high command couldn't believe it either, so
they bought the competitors radio, and I bench tested it as close to
what Consumer Reports did with their tests. Absolutely identical
performance. I've had my doubts about Consumer Reports ever since
the lowest common denominator. They like cheaply made low tech
products. I first noticed it when they trashed high carbon knives and
pushed for stainless steel rather then the kind of stainless knives
that they have now. The latest was the Dyson Vacuum which we got and
love. I am sorry about being difficult.
