“I have been ordering from Amazon since April 2001 and only once have I ever had a problem, and that was in the very beginning.
Mostly I have used just Amazon, but a few times I needed to use their partners, never any trouble.
The only time I questioned anything was when I purchased some books used from a seller. I received the merchandise no problem, but the seller tried to ask for more money for shipping. I contacted Amazon and they dealt with it. When I went back to look at the seller's ratings, well, I should have done that first, but it was one of my first purchases.
If the product is actually shipping from Amazon itself, I don't hesitate. Are they always the lowest price? No! Are they lowest price at least 90% of the time? Yes! Do I get my merchandise undamaged? So far, 100% of the time! Do I get my merchandise quickly? You bet!
Will my good fortune with Amazon continue? I hope so, but if it doesn't and something happens, that doesn't immediately take away 6 years of excellent service. ”
“I have purchased from Crucial for the past couple of years and never regretted it. I first learned about them from a tech at work, it was the best tip he ever gave me!
When I needed extra memory for the desktop computer, I used Crucial. When I needed to upgrade the memory in my laptop, I used Crucial.
When I need something quick and don't want to worry about getting the wrong item, I use Crucial! I never hesitate to send someone to them like some other companies. With Crucial I don't have to give a warning such as, great product but takes forever, or product was okay but customer service was the pitts. With Crucial I can honestly say... go for it!
