Companies, Brand Loyalty, and Warranty

Recommended Posts

I became uber-loyal to ASUS when they accidentally sent me a monitor that cost $40 more than the one I ordered. Haha no I aint sending it back to ya, I'll keep my new 24" incher :P

 

I also would only ever buy a pre-built PC from Apple. Hate me, whatever, but their stuff is high quality.

 

OH, also, NZXT case fan (fan of the cases, not a 120mm bladed thingy) over here!

I notice there are a lot of NZXT fans, which is a good sign do to the fact I'm planning to pick up a 530 this holiday!

I tend to automatically recommend Google. They seem like a pretty awesome company, and I love their products like GMail, Google Maps/Earth, Google Drive.

I've got 3 companies... I think 

 

First is AMD. Love their GPUs, they've never failed me before, and I like alot of the new technology they're bringing out.

 

Second is MSI. I love their MOBOs, and their customer service to me has been great!

 

Thir is Ebuyer (I think.) Basically, a usb I owned died randomly, so I got it replaced by warranty. It arrived a day late, and they were like 'Oh my God! We are so sorry!' *No sarcasm* Then they sent me a bunch of game codes for Steam, so no complaints from me!

MSI masterrace. Like seriously, I love that little dragon thingy even though I feel like I wanna puke when I see that "gaming series" logo on a video card. Takes up so much space. Otherwise I like Intel, so I got that going for me.

Enough to buy a product from a few specific companies if the reviews are favorable. I take into account many different factors over my own personal preference.

i wouldn't say I'm loyal but i have found myself using Asus mobo's a lot as the build quality is so good but if i found another company that was as consistent with the quality i would probably give it a try......

I really like Intel and nVidia and im really loyal to them all hardware i use from them :D

I've seen a trend that's it's either Intel and Nvidia, or AMD and AMD. You get mixes but the stereotype is usually that.

Sapphire for video cards. I've never had a problem with the ones I've purchased and I always give them the edge if there's similar price and performance to their competitors.

 

Intel for cpus. I still recommend AMD cpus to other people in certain budget builds, but I could never bring myself to buying one. I'd rather wait and save up more money than settle on an AMD cpu.

 

Audio Technica for headsets. I only purchased one and that won me over! I have no plans to buy anything else. I am planning on buying a few M50s for presents for Christmas. I will turn my friends and family into believers of doesn't audio. I just hope that none of them waste their money on anything before then.

 

Theo for chocolate! I love that damn Seattle chocolate factory! If I see a Theo chocolate bar in a store (not commonly found outside of Washington/Oregon) I will always buy one.

Google for pretty much everything they do.

Mr. Speakers for headphones (custom made headphones from an awesome guy in San Diego)

Intel for CPUs

But generally I'll stay loyal to a brand as long as they provide a quality no bs product at a good price.

I am a competitive swimmer, and I refuse to use anything not TYR. speedo can go die in a hole.

 

for tech I'm extremely loyal to AMD's GPU side. I use intel CPUs because they're better, but for GPUs it's not that AMD has been better to me, it's that I boycott Nvidia for their scummy business practices.

 

it may be legal, but I don't like it and I refuse to buy their products.

 

I AM HAPPY TO ADMIT that nvidia designs some damn good chips. I DO NOT FANBOY. I am fully aware where AMD is lacking, and where they excel. I have made a conscious decision to avoid Nvidia, not a conscious decision to use AMD.

Wat? I think my Speedo Elite Jammers (or whatever there called) is way better than the equally priced TYR's. I have always had the best experience with Speedo competition swimwear. 

 

Tech stuff: Logitech mice. The nice big ones like Performanc MX/G602 fit my hand perfectly.

I'm pretty fluid when it comes to brands. If it's a good product with good reviews, and a decent price then it really doesn't matter to me. However, if I had to pick one company that I am partial to it would have to be both Gigabyte and Asus motherboards.

Peripherals:

Razer for the headsets... (I have had two pairs of Razer Kraken 7.1's - Broke one of them)

Corsair for the keyboard (I've got a Corsair Vengeance K95 - Cherry MX Red Switches)

 

Components:

Nvidea for the graphics cards - Not too keen on the AMD series (Owned one so I'm speaking from experience)

Intel for the processor - I've got friends that went AMD and their PC is always having problems playing games etc when mine is fine (even considering how old this processor is now lols)

Corsair for my PSU - Don't like skimping out on this as it's the main component that's giving power to my system (I own a Corsair GS600 series power supply) - Corsair also has a great PSU reputation

 

Online, Cloud and ease-of-use:

For years, I used Google's services such as Google Drive, Google Mail, Calendar and Google Docs, I just didn't find them practical any more so I chose to use Microsoft's OneDrive such as word, powerpoint and excel online, I use Microsoft Office 2013 on all of my devices and even at school. When I need files, I save them to the cloud so I can work on them at home or at school. I can even work on them on my laptop when I'm out of the house for example. I just find that they're more practical to use.

In the tech realm:

Phanteks - features-to-price ratio

EKWB - they're beautiful...

Asus - just their motherboards

Blizzard - Zerg4Lyfe

Google - They have too much of my information...

Sennheiser - When I'm too lazy to give friends a specific recommendation.

 

And from the non-tech realms of life:

Caphalon - I think I've bought 90% of my pots and pans from them

nVidia and Intel

 

Manufacturers specifically I'm probably leaning towards MSI and EVGA these days. If I was going to buy new memory now, it'd be Kingston HyperX #savingesports

Personally, Corsair, Their customer support has been amazing, My 780T arrived with a large scratch on the side panels window, Looked like someone had a fight with a fork on it, They sent me one out free of charge and said I could keep the old one for modding if I wanted.

Same with an H100i which had stripped screw holes, Sent out a replacement and then I sent mine back, Couldn't ask for more :)

I was loyal to Asus until I realize that they have shitty after sale service, every RMA that I've done took at least 2 month. Now I'm loyal to Gigabyte.
