Which - Buying A Computer Survey

  bfoc 11:20 01 Oct 2005

Since people often post questions here about different manufacturers reliability and support I thought it was worth mentioning that Which? has, this month, published a survey of over 15,000 of their readers.

The survey shows, amongst other things, that Apple comes joint top with Dell in reliability.

It also shows that Local Independents come top in overall support, with Apple second.

The brands Which? recommends are Apple, Dell and Sony.

Looking at some 'names' that get mentioned on this forum:

Dell - 2nd in recommend to a friend, joint 1st in reliability and 10th in support.

Evesham - 6th in recommend to a friend, 14th in reliability, 4th in support.

Mesh - 8th in recommend to a friend, 13th in reliability, 14th in support.

The detail of the report does make interesting reading and most libraries stock Which?, so if anyone is interested then it would be worth looking for the October 2005 issue.
