Thread: Now I've heard everything!!!

  1. #1

    Thumbs down Now I've heard everything!!!

    We just completed a new system and started looking for a dvd writer. Thinking they might have it at a good price I decided to call Hi-Fi Corporation (corruption)... BIG MISTAKE!!!

    First the guy "Eric" (the sales person in that department) tells me he'll phone me back in 5 minutes, an hour pass and I call back.

    Me: Hi Erick, I am looking for a dvd writer, please also tell me if it's SATA or IDE.

    Erick: No Ma'am, it's a VISTA!!!

    I'm like WTF! You've gotta be kidding me! He eventually has about 4 people running up and down just to finally get back to me with the same answer:

    Ma'am, it's a VISTA dvd player, and it's plug and play.

    HOW do people like this get jobs in the computer and electronics department???!!!

    OMW, please help us...

    So much for phoning an "electronics" franchise.

    as DJK always said - "don't buy steak at a fish and chips shop"

    HIFI isn't the place to go to for computer equipment, only for cheap DVD Players (For your TV) - even the "X-PC" Computer shop next to the Cash crusaders is a better idea.

    funny story though, lol!

    Your first mistake was going to Hi-Fi Corp. They know as much about electronics as I do about rocket science.
    I once dated a girl who lisped, she wanted to watch Faith Like Potatoes. 20 minutes in it dawned that we weren't watching a movie about the Elephant Man...

    If he has to go that far, then that person is clearly not qualified to be working in that department. I would have asked to speak to someone else. Someone competent.

    Wanted to go there as they have a special on the lite-on Drives for R199. Lol, Well, that's it for me and HI FI corruption...

    By the way Mercurial, it was him or one of his 4 cronies that told him it's a VISTA dvd writer. hehehe

    Wait for the Windows 7 model - it'll be faster and prettier than the Vista model.
