Overrated

From my personal experiences over the years, what things did I find overrated? Many of these items have been advertised and marketed repeatedly over the years. My list of overrated items were compiled over the last few years — how did my actual experiences compare with how the brand was marketed, portrayed or talked about in the media?

Some of these items receive so much hype but the actual experience may not be anything like the hype and can be a big disappointment. A large advertising budget for someone’s brand does not necessarily guarantee a positive perception.
