[THG] The SSD Power Consumption Hoax - Page 5

post #41 of 44
You can try to apply a strict standard of honesty, but if you do, then pretty much all advertising is false. A lot of advertising is exactly meant to mislead you in one way or another, plain and simple. As long as it's in some grey area that they can get away with, they'll keep doing it.

Well I know it doesn't RANDOMLY guess.

Sorry then, because I misunderstood what you meant.

ever hear the phrase "if it sounds too good..." yet how many of those companies are still doing biz as normal? that's not my call to say that this stuff should be allowed and so someone elses logic came into play there.

how so? if they are able to hit those numbers quoted at +/-9 then that's not lying. just because is what is commonly used doesn't mean that everyone has to use it and be bound by it.

I fully agree with you there and I couldn't do it.
but then again that is why they have these marketing firms. to find out how best to give the information to where it sounds as good as possible and figure out what info they can cut and twist to make it sound good without quite being a lie just an omission or a twist but yet still fit in the legal realm.
Fair enough. The audio company would be in the clear in my eyes if they added the +/- 9dB to their frequency range, otherwise I would take as much issue with it as this.
