I hate it when people mix math values like "30% less than the standard APS-C sensor used in DSLR cameras, but nine times greater than those in compact cameras". It is no way to make a comparison.

Just remember, 4 out of  3 people don't understand fractions.;-)

I do agree  that, for non-technical folks, mixing percentages with multipliers doesn't easily give you a clear idea of the difference. "30 % smaller than... but 900% bigger than..." might be easier to understand.
