We Want You To Know!
Unfortunately, in many industries, there are ways to deceitfully
offer products at prices that appear too good to be true, while
increasing profits all the more. This is true in the computer and
electronics industry, as well.
Be assured, Digital Systems & Applied
Technologies, Inc., iQuickNet, LLC and Computer Country WILL NEVER stoop to such tactics!
There are too many ways to deceive the customer when purchasing computer related products to describe here, but we'd like you to be
aware of some of the most prominent ways customers can be cheated.
Here are some things to be on the look out for:
|Multiple shipping labels on the product
box. This could indicate
that it has been returned as defective, or
"repaired" and then offered again for sale as new.|
|Beware of software sold as only a CD
ROM, with no packaging, manual or certificate of
authenticity. It could be
pirated or an illegal copy.|
|Know your prices! Most
products sold at chain stores, big box stores and
"discount" warehouse type stores are actually sold
at MSRP* or HIGHER! *Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price|
|Ask about the differences between the
"business grade" product and the "consumer
grade" product. Many
manufacturers make products that are only sold at "big
box stores" or "discount warehouse"
stores. These products often differ
significantly in quality from their business grade products,
yet you only save $20 to $30.|
|Be sure you are buying the latest
version of software. Some
stores sell older software versions. Imagine if you
purchased Microsoft Office 2000 after the latest version
called Office XP has been released. Now if you want
the XP version, you have to spend more money for the
the product you are buying labeled as "OEM"?
Some software, particularly those "lite
versions" bundled with hardware components are sold
separately. There is no technical support for these
products and often they won't work with the components you
have in your computer.
|"OEM Product To Be Sold With
A New PC". It is a license
agreement violation to purchase software sold "as
is" that's labeled as such.|
for expiration dates on printer ink cartridges and toner
kits. Many chain stores sell
such products on the verge of expiration. This could
cause printer damage, cause a mess inside your printer
or rob you of the normal number of printed pages you should
get because the ink has evaporated, gelled or clotted.
|Does the product you just purchased have
missing pieces? Things like
power cables, manuals, software media, warranty registration
cards. Maybe the product you just purchased was
returned by a previous customer. It may be a
