Just one comment: how reliable and objective is our "honest appraisal"? Or 
might we be just a "teeny" bit biased by the experiences each of us have 
had? (It sure is easy to sell CIC's!)

In 1955 we purchased a washing machine solely on the basis of a "Best Buy" 
recommendation in Consumer Reports. In the following five years we spent 
more on repairs than what we initially paid for it - plus it was broken down 
much of the time we owned it. Then Consumer Reports published a "frequency 
of repair" study showing our brand and model of washing machine was far 
worse than any other! So much for "honest appraisals." <g>
