Don't pay too much attention to "Which?" I have had arguments in the past with them about their competence to pontificate on various issues. The only reason I still get their mags is because I am seduced by their frequent draws to wind squillions, in the old Readers Digest way. Best avoided. (No. Not won anything yet. I'm stupid, I guess. I will cancel when I remember...)
BBC Radio Bristol runs a consumer programme each weekday. Its presenter says he won't deal with any more complaints about Time, as anyone foolish to buy one from them obviously hasn't been listening to his programme, which has featured countless tales of woe about the firm.
when i bought my first computer in 1996 i was warned off 'time' as they were at the time being investigated by northwest trading standards. eventually bought from dan and had a brilliant computer and service from them. in 1999 spent six months putting off a mate of mine from buying a 'time' computer from office world. he still bought one and it was returned within another six months 'totally knackered'. he bought on tick so got a refund, lucky for him. put him off computers and he has not bought another. his opinion tarred all computer comps with the same brush. i bought my last comp from evesham in 2000 and have had no probs and their 'after sales' service has been first class.
Chris and the chappy before him worked very hard on this forum to sort out any problems and answer any questions that were raised. They are the only supplier who have continued to answer problems quickly when posted here and also taken a much more pro-active approach to this site than any other supplier. For that I give them praise.
And no I dont work for them, never have done, doubt I ever will (job offers by email!) and nor do I own a TIME PC.
