    If they have not got a five star review isn't that false advertising?

    of course and I'm pretty sure that any advert has to state the source when making any such claim

    Its next to the spring 2005 essential hi-fi home cinema” this is an absolute Bargain" quote

    Ease of use four stars
    Looks four stars
    Features three stars
    Picture four stars
    Sound three stars
    Value five stars

    OVERALL FOUR STARS

    there surely not quoting one catagory are they ? If so almost all Cars in what car would be five star winners of one section or another. And clearly its not a five star overall winner.If they put five star for value ,well ok but this is pushing it...dont you think

    People buy on the basis of recommendations from mags .proud quotes are justified if won properly.I think if you selectively quoted the bible on satan you could get something that sounded like a recommendation!

    I doubt if you could get a recommendation for Tiny from here even by selective quoting!

    OK smartass! That's editing, not quoting, if we're feeling that way. But very good, you could even get a job copywriting for Granville.

    No offence is taken at all, I thought it was clever, as you say, proving your point on the adverts tiny use.

    Doesn't need such heavy handed editing - just a little trim:
