    Nice Vince, yea, I've had nothing but bad luck with them and Toshiba.

    Happy to help, Austin. Decades ago, Dell Computers were the best. But they failed to improve, and then they had to lower their prices. So they began intentionally making cheap parts that would wear out after the warranty expired. My wife has a twelve year old Dell that still runs well. But those days are gone.

    Thanks Vince.

    Jim, as you seen, I speak highly of WD. A lot of that is from their CM, and quality parts.

    In general terms, I find it rather interesting that people all have their brands they love.

    Moreover, I'm also interested what is attracting, people to those brands, weather it be cause they look pretty?
    or from CM? Or reliably?

    Ok I had my fun with the emotes lol.

    ASUS - Motherboards
    AMD - CPU's
    Logitech - Track Balls, keyboards, game controllers and speakers
    My printers are all HP.
    D-Link for networking although I am considering switching brands. The hardware is good but their tech support sucks.

    I use HP all-around if I get a good price. But I tend to stick to their printers.

    I've been using Logitech for my accessories for a while now. I like them a lot.

    I use netgear for my network needs.

    Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit (7 Ult, Vista & XP in V-Box)


    My first PC was an Osborne 386 SX20 but I've had such a good run with Acers over the last
    10 years or so that I do tend to look at them first when thinking of an new machine.

    I'll buy Intel over AMD, but once ran a Cyrix 686/300(!!??).

    Nvidia is my choice of GPU.

    Seagate for HDD (have 500GB and 2TB externals) , but also own a few WD and
    Maxtor drives. This laptop has twin Toshiba 750s in it!

    I like Belkin I/R keyboards and my game-controllers are all Logitech.

    My laser-printer and 3-in-1 inkjet are both Lexmark.
