Angry iBuypower woes

This is just a warning to anyone building a custom PC. iBuypower Computers is a nightmare company to work with. They will not honor their service agreements. I bought a PC in Dec '05, in Jul '06 it broke down, their on-site company never came out. Their 24/7 support is defunct and no longer offered or honored. Their customer service reps are rude and deceptive. Find a better company to work with and research them carefully. Don't make the mistake I made. Don't patronize iBuypower computers

Custom built PC companies are always a pain. You'd think they'd try to do the right thing, since it'd be hard to stay in business otherwise. Pretty much the only Pre-built PC Companies that actually good are companies like Falcon Northwest, but their prices are atrocious.

It's just better to build yourself, it's a much more rewarding experiance and you lessen your chances of a major problem significantly.

dude.. that was uncalled for, i wouldnt recommend saying stuff like that (you might get banned for starting a flame war)

You just lost 10 cool points for that one man

But on a serious note.. i think his post had some sort of significance, unlike yours

btw, if you dont know what atrocious means then you arent that bright

(Back on topic)
What happend to monarch computers?
Ive never heard of anything bad about them, i was planning to buy a custom built computer from them...

I can't tell whether this is Sarcastic or extremely Ironic.
