NEW
Different colour from previous model.

ALL NEW
Parts not interchangeable with previous model.

UNMATCHED
Almost as good as the competition.

DESIGNED SIMPLICITY
Manufacturing costs cut to the bone.

FOOLPROOF OPERATION
No provision for adjustments.

ADVANCED DESIGN
The advertising agency doesn't understand it.

IT'S HERE AT LAST!
Rush job, nobody told us it was coming.

FIELD-TESTED
Manufacturer lacks test equipment.

HIGH ACCURACY
All the parts fit in the box.

YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT
We finally got one that works.

REVOLUTIONARY
It's different from our competitors.

BREAKTHROUGH
We finally figured out a way to sell it.

Oh you poor people - you want more? Well OK - Part 2

FUTURISTIC
No other reason why it looks the way it does.

DISTINCTIVE
A different shape and colour to others.

MAINTENANCE-FREE
Impossible to fix.

RE-DESIGNED
Previous faults corrected, we hope...

PERFORMANCE PROVEN
Will operate through the warranty period.

MEETS ALL STANDARDS
Ours, not yours.
