    i'd say only if the original is: gut vergleichbar
    to compare to: vergleichen
    to compare well to: gut vergleichen

    odondon irl (slightly OT): I was taught at school (a long time ago!) that there's a slight difference in meaning:
    "compare to": "gleichsetzen mit" or "gleichkommen"
    (as in "nothing compares to you" - es gibt niemanden der Dir gleichkommt)
    "compare with": vergleichen mit

    Did I get something wrong or is it just that this difference is disappearing in usage?
