Hello all,<p>You know, I just got my last couple issues of PRO magazine and Ldscp. Mgmt, and something funny occurred to me. Have you ever noticed how not one magazine ever gives a ranking on performances?<p>Why is that. I mean, you can go buy a car magazine, and in a lot of cases, they'll say straight out which machine is better, and which machines have problems. Like pop. mechanics for instance. They have those long term test results and tell it as it is. <br>Why the hell don't we have that?<p>Well, its probably because the mags are too scared too lose any advertisers if they bad mouth them, but its really not fare. All they do is talk about all the equipment and all the new and wonderful features. Not once do they mention how good they are though.<p>Well, at least we have this forum to do that!<br>This is definitely a much needed "Advice Center" for us, because I don't see us getting the hard facts from anyone else. <p>I was wondering, that maybe besides this, are there any other publications that give hard facts instead of engineered mumbo jumbo on the the new pieces of equip. If there are, I would love to hear about them. If not, Its definitely a topic that needs addressing.
