How to ensure you get the right model of the part you ordered?
I'm noticing several instances of different models of parts being sold under a single umbrella name. And usually, the differences between the products are large & gaping. Personally, I find this unacceptable and I am trying to think of a way to get around it.
For example: the samsung 226bw, currently the sweetheart deal-breaker of most people looking to buy the new IT monitor, comes in three flavors: awesome (S model), saucesom (A model), and terrible (C model). Those who receive the C, or cheimei version, report bleeding throughout the entire monitor, while those with the S model report it to be the best monitor ever and they can't get any work done because their co-workers want to look at the monitor. Blah. google 226bw panel types to know more.
For example: the Q6600 comes in G0 and not-G0. Now this is a delicate situation as well. Most people don't care if they get G0'd or not, but the people who do care don't get any control.
If we're paying for a piece of equipment, we should have access to ALL the specs and ALL the technical information.
Currently I am wracking my brain with a way to ensure you get the parts you want, 100% of the time. Any input?
