We obviously have different ways of suggesting products.
I try to find ones that satisfy all stated requirements, if possible. If my suggestions do not do so, I will mention how they fall short. In this thread, for example, I would not suggest a CD transport to someone who obviously needs a CD player and then hope he finds out prior to making a purchase that it is not a player. I would feel horrible if I caused him to buy the wrong product.
