Explorer Micro Computers

Is there anyone with experience buying Athlon computers from Explorer Micro Computers?  I am concidering buying a 1.33G Athlon based system from them, but I would like to know how their systems hold up and how they are on service.

And after reading through some more of the comments (the comview.cgi link) there are NUMEROUS serious complaints against this company, and apparently many reports to the BBB against them.  There are *MANY* reputable companies on the net to buy systems from, Explorer Micro definitely isn't one of them!  Stay away!

Here's a tip.  Call their TECHNICAL SUPPORT line as though you are already a customer.  If you sit on hold for an hour or if you talk to someone and they are an idiot, shop elsewhere.

If you want my opinion, get a DELL.

Take a look at those two sites...from what I'm reading, they don't sound very reliable.  The best price doesn't always mean the best systems...

check out www.pcnut.com, they build custom systems, and have a 6.8 out of 7.0 rating (nearly perfect) from ResellerRatings.  Check http://www.resellerratings.com/vendrank.html for more listings of reliable companies.  Read their comments. Make sure you don't only choose a high-ranked company, but also one with a fairly good number of reviews.

I cast my vote for dogztar.  

The ResellerRatings web site has the information this user needs...  After reading that you'd have to be a real fool to buy from this company.
