I am a long time supporter of Consumer Reports. Among other things, they perform the most comprehensive survey of the general population, second only to the US Census, and they do it every year.
But there are threetopics I know enough about to knowthat Consumer Reports doesn't know enough about them. They are audio equipment, computers, and cameras. Occasionally, they get lucky and get one or two right, as is the case of the Pentax K200D, but I suggest that you not give their opinion a lot of weight in this area.
