I'm in love with my new DELL, it gets dusted every day like my Hi-Fi, the rest of the house will be OK. I'm glad you pleased & that's you've posted saying so, so many people in this country complain yet few praise, nice to see a pleased customer.
I've noticed that whatever company you buy from, there are people complaining about them, but also people praising them. Even the big name dealers like DELL. Mistakes happen everywhere, and I hope it doesn't with my order from DinoPC, which is arriving tomorrow. How do I know? Got an email from them with a tracking number for FedEx, which is good so far. So I'm saying that all you can do is make sure you can use PayPal to pay for it, then if there are any problems, you can report it to them.
ITs easy to forget that the majority of computers sold by any manufacturer will work perfectly well for years. The more computers sold by a company will relate to the number of complaints they recieve. Yes it is important to read up and research peoples experieneces of a company but just because someone has had a bad experience doesn't mean you will. I bought a MESH PC 3-4 years ago and everythign about the service was great, I have just this week upgraded the motherboard, RAM and OS just because technology has advanced.
I used to suggest in this forum each December that folk who'd bought a computer for the kids tried it before the great day to make sure it worked, because every year there was a host of cries for help regarding some dead on arrival job or other
I don't do it anymore. The standard of computers sold is far higher than it used to be and, let's face it, if it doesn't work, the kids are far more likely to be able to fix it themselves
I've just bought a new Dell with W7. Well priced, smart, delivered on time and so fast I can't get my fingers to keep up
I've also bought from Dabs, Cable Universe and several others recently where the stuff was ordered one day and here the next despite Royal Mail troubles
There are one or two exceptions with regard to build and customer service standards but I have to say that I think we are being far better served these days than we were 5 years ago
