  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Why should I have to measure the power consumption?
    Before I got the box and the screen, I checked the manufacturers' figures about power consumption and saw that they were low. Those variables were significant in making me choose these products.
    That should be enough.

    Should I expect the manufacturers to have lied .. or what?
