Six IT companies were rebuked by the Advertising Standards Authority last month for exaggerating the pricing or abilities of their products.
Chris Reed, ASA external affairs manager, said the number was higher than usual, as computer companies usually attract only three adjudications a month.
Dixons successfully complained about an advert from TAG PC Technology boasting a sub-#1,000 PC without displaying the VAT inclusive price properly.
Epson UK was ordered to moderate claims about its Epson Stylus Colour 800 printer. The ASA found the printer would only achieve its claims with a higher-than-average specification PC.
Hi-Grade Computers was informed it could not claim the Notino AS6000 was the 'fastest notebook ever' because it did not provide evidence to back its claims. The ASA found the use of P and II in a PCS Direct advert was misleading because it implied an Intel Pentium II processor was used.
Although the ad stated it contained an IBM processor, the ASA said the clarification was not prominent.
Serif Europe was asked not to repeat the claim that it offered #199 of software for #5.95 unless it could prove SerifPagePlus 3 and DrawPlus 2 were worth #199.
Virtual Internet was told to stop claiming it was the largest domain registrar and Website hosting company in Europe until it could prove it.
The ASA also said the claim that it had registered domain names in over 200 countries was untrue.
