ACER Sucks

I vow this is the first and LAST time I'm buying anything from Acer.

Slightly after a year after I bought my current Acer laptop, I noticed the appearance of a line that ran from top of the LCD screen to the bottom. I thought nothing about it.

A few days later, another line appeared. Still, I did nothing.

A week later, I had 10 vertical lines of assorted colours on my laptop screen. Hmmm... colourful.

I logged on to Acer website to find out the location of the service centre, and "on the way" checked my warranty expiry date. To my dismay, my warranty was only ONE year!!!! And I just passed the one year mark!!!

I mean, I paid full price for this laptop, it wasn't on any promotion! Shouldn't I deserve at least 2 years of warranty????????????????????

Now, I have to spend $550 to repair the hardware defect!! What rubbish?!

I'm even more upset at the unreliability of Acer products. Afterall, the laptop's only over a year old! What shit is this?!

I refused to pay, and decided to live with it. Another 6 months down the road, this is how my screen looks now......

My gosh.. what did u do to your beloved ACER notebook! Think your whole LCD Screen needs to be changed.. Well.. know the acer guy actually and if you buy me a good (probably the same Thai place or Xin Wan), I can help you to get it fixed up at a lower cost! A good deal not to be missed! =p
