Target had a nice 50% off Star Wars coupon in the Sunday paper. Which I think can be download to a smartphone as well. I looked on Sunday and even asked at my local Target but they would not go in the back or even scan the tag to see if they had more. I went upstate yesterday so stopped at the Target up there. Seems the Luke Skywalker ones are short packed compared to the other two.

ViewSonic VA2431WM LCD Widescreen monitor.

Bought one of these 24" Widescreen monitors for my oldest boy’s graphic arts PC last Wednesday. ( His original 17" ViewSonic died after 8 years of hard use and 4 moves. )

He and I both really like the new monitor, so I’ve ordered a second one to replace my two year old 20" Dell widescreen.

Arrived today via UPS, the monitor died an abrupt death after 30 minutes.

Called Viewsonic support 800#, but they had no warehoused stock and were unable to replace. The technician recommended I return it to Amazon, which I did.

I will buy something other than Viewsonic locally.

Not a good experience I’m afraid. :stuck_out_tongue:

Dell ST2421L LED 24" Monitor

Ended up going to Staples and buying another Dell monitor. Their monitors are better than their PC’s in my experience, not that their PC’s are bad even.

So, ends Monitor Misadventures for now. :dry:

Dell PCs are horrible. They had by far the highest defect and return rate of any PCs we use to sell at Best Buy. Not to mention, their customer service reps use to tell people that the systems they bought in stores weren’t covered under warranty and try to sell them a new one over the phone. I’ve never something so unethical and sleazy from a consumer electronics company.


#443

Cody, good to hear from someone with in-the-field experience.

All my work with Dell PC’s is from a direct purchase Business perspective. My old company laptop, the last Dell I used, was a tank that lasted 5 years.

It should be noted that the company now uses HP for laptops, desktop machines and servers.

#444

Is 5 years good? :wink: My old PowerBook is 8 years old and still going. My biggest problems with Dell are there customer service. I’ve known very few people who have bought them more than once as a result of poor service.


#445

Oh, the Dell Laptop could have gone on for more years. It was the fact that it was one of the last of it’s type in the company that got it shuffled off the stage.

I agree that Dell’s customer service has been lacking for as long as I’ve dealt with them, since 1997 come to think of it. Their products seem to work best in a business setting where the business itself provides primary support.

All my family’s PCs were built by me except for my 7 year old Toshiba laptop. I know how well they were made.

Xenoblade Chronicles $49.99

As I thought with ordering so late as I did. I did not get the artbook though I’d not gotten it anyway. They only got two for what looked like the 5 copies they had and was told I’d probably not gotten the game if I’d not come in when I did.
