Bad companies!!!

I just thought it was about time I had a rant about 2 companies in particular:

1.Specialtech

Although my order came through fine, the packaging was absolutely terrible. A few shreds of card to protect my precious hardware? C'mon...

2. Asus

There website is terrible, call centres even worse.. Ive got a broken product and all I need is some help.. A company like theirs should be embarased.

Never had any problems with Specialtech, in fact I think their service is rather good. I have used them on numerous occasions and everything has been spot on.

Yeah I also consciously bought non-Asus because of their bad support. Not that GigaByte and Sapphire are superb, but at least they are not that bad.

Never had a problem with Specialtech, When all my PC parts came packaging was good.

Nothing really worng with ST. A few shreads of cardboard are more than a lot of companies will do. Lots just stick a city link bag around the item.

Azerty: airbags (literally), doublewalled cardbox

HighFlow: a lot of shredded paper, foambags, doublewalled cardbox, foampads

Komplett: airbags, doublewalled box
