When I had my telecom-related business... I subscribed to a trade magazine. One of the manufacturers got rave reviews... and yes... they spent tons of advertising dollars with that trade rag. I sold some of their systems, and ended up suing that manufacturer. The quality of their product was horrible. I was about to get sued, myself. I ended up replacing their systems with another brand, or just giving them their purchase price back to stay out of court. The manufacturer settled out of court with us. All the while, that manufacturer was still getting rave reviews...
I was a Good Sam member for the first year. The magazine was almost worthless to me. It was nothing but advertising, mostly for Good Sam insurance and Good Sam maintenance insurance... Thanks, but no thanks...
