Stop 'blind recommending' please!!!! - Page 8

post #71 of 74
I think the thread title is a bit misleading. I feel like there's times where blind recommending is okay, when you back it up wtih actual FACTS. There's times where I'll recommend a prodcut I've never owned or heard but I'll usually recommend for a specific reason.

- Within Budget
- Fits their specific needs (Broad Subject)
- Reviews

I also think it's a good idea to mention whether you've actually owned it or not. With these things taken into account I feel no reason not to make a recommendation.

Edit: Btw I though your name was always Cheesewiki or am I thinking of someone else?

Another noteworthy observation is that it seems that 90% of the "recommend me an object" threads have an incredible level of redundancy to those who frequent the forums.

I cannot fathom how many answers would be reached if people just used the sozo.gifsozo.gifsozo.gif search function.

Typically lazy threads receive lazy answers. This discourages a few of the really technical people on this forum and also makes them harder to track down when you're looking for a real answer on something.

And rightfully so. The fastest platter HDD in the F3 and as with Samsungs, lowest temperature.
