There was a thread around a little while back where some people were expressing
the opinion that SOS doesn't make bad reviews, and (to my reading) suggested it was just
in the business to make the advertisers happy, accuracy and full disclosure/completeness
notwithstanding. Some examples were given to the contrary, but those were discounted for
reasons I didn't quite understand by those making the comments.
I was one of
the ones who posted an opposite point of view - I felt confident that if a product had
significant negative characteristics, SOS's review would indicate that. Along the same
lines, I thought I'd post a link to a review from the SOS released today that I just
happened to come across. It's as far from a fanboy review as I could imagine, short of
describing the product as an attractive, though less than ideally portable, paperweight.
Certain to make the advertiser happy - certainly not! But it does help to show that SOS is
not shy about pulling punches when the product quality warrants them.
Hmm ... I
suppose posting this very thread makes me look like an SOS fanboy! I'm not (just ask
Jennifer, and +/- the Cubase reviewer!), but I do value it highly, and don't like to see
it unjustifiably maligned, at least as I see it.
