Kick Ass Shit:

MGE
Chaintech
FIC
Asus
Gigabyte
AOpen
ATi
Turtle Beach
Paradigm
Pioneer
Belkin
Aspire
TR2TT
Sony (Components only)
nVidia

"The Shit List:"

Artec Drives
Lexmark

That does it for me! What brands do you all like/dislike?

All of those are quality brands, why do you dislike them? Dell makes some awesome LCDs, IBM makes great servers and laptops and, well, Mac is in a class of their own. :thumbsup:

  • Apple
  • AMD
  • SunMicroSystems
  • Asus
  • Sony
  • Epson
:thumbsdn:
  • Dell
  • SGI
  • Maxtor
  • CreativeLabs

Dell makes the top of my shitlist for 2 reasons: they are notorious for outsourcing, their computers are a nightmare to work with (upgrading older models due to proprietary hardware).
SGI, once a great computer giant who gave us OpenGL and made great contributions to the developement of UNIX and RISC architecture, now has really shitty business practices. The absurd overpricing of their hardware, and their OS IRIX is almost as bad their software subsidiary AliasWaveFront.
Maxtor bugs me out because their harddrives are pain in the ass to install, custom software is needed. Totally unexpected, and totally a pain in the ass!
CreativeLabs dumped a shitload of periferals into the market, without sufficient driver coverage. Last time I visitted the website for updates, half of the links were broken. Just all around shitty business.

Their monitors rock cock. My 15" LCD I got from them is a gaming god. Also, it's analog only, but the image is so perfect I honestly can't tell the difference between DVI and this.
