Do you get carried away by advertisements or do your own research before buying any product?
I use a combination of being carried away by the advertisement, which provokes me to do my own research before buying anything. If the advertisement intrigues me and the research encourages me that is when I make a decision about whether or not purchase the item.
I try very hard not to succumb to marketing scams and product advertising. I realize that companies that produce commercials may not necessarily have the best products - they simply have a bigger marketing budgets than the their competitors.
I tend to do quite a bit of research when it comes to buying something new. This is basically independent of the advertising that I see. I want to feel like my money was well spent and I want to make sure that I get the best product that I can to serve the purpose that I need.
I feel the urge from advertisements, actually I quite enjoy them. But that does not translate into purchasing for me. Purchasing comes from a need I have. So then I must research to see what fits my needs. Some would say I am a smart shopper -- They would be wrong. I am just really cheap ;-)
I always do research before purchasing. Advertisements are just saying "pick me, pick me". Always irritating.
If I am interested in a product, I start to do research, read reviews etc. Then I begin the search for the best price. I used to buy things on the spur of the moment but I don't do that anymore.

If it is a small impulse driven purchase I do tend to rely on advertisement but if buying big ticket items like car or major electronics (SLR camera, Big screen TV) I will do my home work before buying
