Why were Sonys Excluded from a last published issue.
Sonys are all I own, 3. Sonys are everywhere.
They say they buy at public stores. Whats up.
Consumer Reports wont Respond on this or April Air - Spaceguard
Sony what? Video recorder, radio what?
CR does not test every model and brand of every product. They do tend
to test those that are generally available and are in the general price
range and feature range they are testing. If something of special interest
is available and does not fit they may do a special report on it.
Why do you think it was a fraud? Are you suggesting they got paid not
to include it?
BTW how do you like the ones you have? How do you think they would
stack up to the ones CR did test?
I have subscribed to Consumers Reports for years and I have not
noticed them singling any one product out to ignor it in their
testing. I did a quick online check of Consumer Reports website in the
Electronics category...the first item I checked was an evaluation of
Camcorders completed in July 2004. Sony was one of the Camcorders
being evaluated. It seems like Consumer Reports has rated Sony's
televisions very highly in recent years.
I too have Sony products but they are not the only high quality
products you can buy!
We have a set of Sony 2.4GHz cordless phones/intercom/answering machine
that we bought two or three years ago on closeout. I can't say that they
are wonderful, but they are OK. I don't recall ever seeing Sony
telephones in a store since we got ours; I assumed that Sony was no
longer making telephones.

following message into cyberspace:
I don't trust CR's evaluations of phones. A few years back they gave a
Radio Shack corded big-button phone a high rating. My experience with that
model was not acceptable due to radio interference -- a parameter that CR
never mentioned in the article, and I assume they never evaluated.
sony is ok stuff with a few notable execeptions (de series av receivers
dated 200-2002ish come to mind), but you can do as good for less. check the
home theater group if you want info on av gear.
Sony's reign as a "superior"product ended years ago. OK is about the best
you can say about them now. Overpriced and living on an old reputation.
The bigger they got, the worse the quality control. Now, they supply an
entire chain of outlet stores with their refurbs.
