I don't know what Amstrad employees thought of Sinclair designs, as I was not there. But keep in mind that before computers, Amstrad manufacturered cheap audio systems.

And various computer products from various manufacturers used different techniques to try to keep the cost low. Including Amstrad.

Given the segmentation of the home computer market at the time, with lots of "mine is better than yours" type attitudes, I'm not surprised that comments like this (Amstrad shocked at how Sinclair had done things) were banded around.
 
But, whatever was said back then, and whatever is said now, both Sinclair and Amstrad made computers and shifted millions of those computers. Both repaired or replaced any faulty units within the one year warranty period that was typical for that period of time. And both supplied products that complied with the electrical standards of the time.

It was Cliff Lawson that said this sometimes between 1995 and 2000 when News was the main Amstrad discussion forum. He lead the Amstrad team for the Amstrad made Spectrums. It was not a rumour that was out there while the machines were sold

Is good to know that the scene of a pseudo-computer-console-toy 1mhz crap where his floppy interface is almost as powerful as the central unit and the predominant color is brown-poop must be united!! go guys!! go!!!
