Quality of workmanship se voet....I had to redo a bloody installation an "accredited installer" did because he fscked it up properly, and the cabling in my roof was a nightmare thanks to him... (granted I also had to do the same for an alarm company that came in and screwed everything up as well but hey)
Oh and this "complex product" thing is bollocks... its a dish and some cables.. point the dish in the right direction, run cables and plug it in.. then phone the call centre and get them to activate.
Which would you rather pay.... R1000+ for someone to come and install and makes a complete dogsbollocks of the wiring and just do a messy job? Or spend a few hours yourself plus a few hundred ronds to get the meter and cable and such yourself?
I am going to have to replace the dish at my house in the next year or so, and i'll be doing that myself thank you very much.. at least I know the quality of the workmanship will be up to MY standards and not MC's pathetic idea of what quality workmanship is.
