Prosser.... as in CPC Prosser...

Anyway, there would be huge legal implications if that were true. Newegg would effectively be slating Creative's products which is clearly illegal (IE. There is no proof that the products are not up to scratch).

As much as i would like it to be true, you have to think with a business mind and realise that not even the stupidest retailer would do this.
