Actually...you'd have a crapload of views and 0 replies due to the fact that, anyone who reads it, would die from laughing.

MDG is not horrible.. its the idiot customers who buy stuff from them. I find it amazing they've been so successful but there's a sucker born every minute

They do good revenue, but screw the customers. Not that every other dealer is a saint, but some people I've talked to think that MDG is only a hair away from Dell. Pssh.

i bought a p4 1.4 from mdg, about 4 years ago, never had a problem with them
never had to call support but this was before they made it "big". when they were just a small company

i'd say

One of my friends was looking at buying a laptop. He said he was looking at this store down the street from him called MDG... I said "DON'T buy it from there" , but it from Dell or buy a brandname unit from Future Shop or something. Well, he didn't listen to me and probably ended up spending $400+ more than he had to. To top it off, his computer fried itself a few days after buying it and they needed like 2 weeks to fix the thing.

What really got me was that about a month before this he brought his old junk of a computer in and they charged him like $125 to $150 to replace a power supply and then upsold him to get Windows XP on his machine!! (like his computer was anywhere CLOSE to being able to handle it)

MDG aint that bad

I bought two comps from them

first one (when i was in gr 11) i bought a value comp and had nuthing but problems

but when i was in the market a few years ago for a new comp

i chose MDG simply bc they had the beast deals IMO

i would NEVER buy a comp from FS or BB
waste of money

just like i would NEVER buy a SONY or a TOSHIBA or some other useless name brand comp

my new MDG comp works just as good as the other comps bc i got a good system this time around

i think its FS and BB who overcharges for their products

I don't think draw of the luck is good enough for most people.

bump I was thinking about getting the HorizionBook 900 for $699, but after reading so many bad things about MDG, I think i'll pass

If there are so many complaints about MDG, maybe someone should get the media involved such as Silverman Helps (City TV) helps@citytv.com
and/or Street Cents (CBC) streetcents@cbc.ca

Maybe less people will get suckered into buying their products

MDG needs to be on RFD's retail ratings list, with negative stars.
