    1. Pertinax perhaps you could consider a subscription to OzTAM? I believe I go above and beyond to detail ratings as quickly and thoroughly as I can, including on weekends and public holidays when OzTAM does not supply ….and usually giving a number if someone asks nicely. I listed Bosch last week.
