PCWorld - They are all Liers!

Ok, well basically a friend got a new laptop. Firstly they told him it didn't have wireless built into it and he needed to buy a PCMCIA card for it. So he did. I took a look at it and it had a perfectly working wireless adaptor built in.

He also got a D-Link wireless router with it. They said it was the last one in stock and they wouldn't be getting any more in, next day he went in, they had 20 of them stacked up in the networking section.

What a bunch of liers!

Yep, but the friend I am refering to NEVER buys anything on the internet. He even pays for broadband via cheque quarterly. Aparently he doesn't trust CCs and the net *rolls eyes*

I have a name for PC World. It's Dimwits Land.

Advert goes where in the world - so I thought I give them an answer especially since some of there staff are right dimwits I brought a cheap soundcard in there at one point I couldn't get it to slot into the PCI slot so I take it back and the guy tries it in a machine away from view comes back and says "It fits in our machine - try wiggling the motherboard"!

Plus when I was getting broadband, I had to go and get a splitter from them as I didn't have enough, they asked me which ISP I was going with out of interest, I said PlusNet, and they said they were unreliable and had bad support and recomended AOL or FreeServe, GRRRR!

Hi,

ISNT PC World part of the Dixons Group along with The Link (mobile phone shops)Huh

**Unless you know exactly what your buying, know all the technical details of the product I definately wouldnt buy from PC World either its just another supermarket but a rather bad one at that though.

**PCWorld is for people who have money but are pretty naive when it comes to new technologies and thats exactly what PCWorld hopes for, people who their staff can blind with techno-babble. And who will fall for it & part with cash into the bargin.

Comet aren't part of the DSG Retail Group. It's Dixons, Currys, PC World and The Link. DSG stands for Dixons Stores Group.
