Way too busy again…..On
top of everything here, I had to deal with KDS
on a monitor return, they’re shipping a replacement out, while my client is
using my small 14′ Packard Bell monitor.
I’ve dealt with
KDS for a few years and have purchased over a hundred monitors from them, and
the death rate is a little high for my blood. I now stick with a few different
brands instead of KDS. I bought this one from Tiger Direct and was triple-billed.
The worst part was that I was in Florida on vacation and had to call between
my bank and Tiger to settle this problem. Tiger had a problem on their site,
but didn’t inform anyone unless they called. I gave them a home # and my email
and never received a communication from them. I almost had to check out of my
motel because of this. I’ll never purchase anything from them again. I had a
medium sized account with them and they treat everyone like that, from companies
to individuals. so they are blacklisted.
I buy a lot from
Computer Geeks and have never had a problem
from them in 4 years. When I was in IS, I purchased a lot of Gateway PCs for
the facility. No problems with hardware or delivery. Same with Compaq, purchased
a couple of hundred PCs and a dozen servers and only 2 PCs ever arrived D.O.A.
I think I could upgrade a Compaq Prolinea with my eyes closed. I’ve never messed
around with Dell PCs, but they come recommended by fellow geeks. I’ve brokered
IBM and HP PC for my private clients. They are great machines and the HPs are
cheap but full with good products. IBMs cost a lot, but they last forever. It’s
more like an investment. I have an XT that still boots and runs WordPerfect
5.1 and I’ve used an ancient ThinkPad that rocked. I don’t like new stuff. I
have a PC that is in a 7 year-old case, 4 year old motherboard and runs
great for my use. Drum-wise I wouldn’t play something younger than I am.
