  • Changing the entire SSD is stupid. That means you would have to do constant retesting of SSDs or all the reviews on the internet are worthless. They should at the very least label it as a new product. I remember buying a PNY SSD and it's read and write speeds were 300 when it was advertised as 500. I took it back and Best buy took it back. But, they tried to just tell me that 500 is just a projected speed. Crucial and Kingston SSDs actually give you what they say they do.

  • It seems like "misrepresentation". It gets retailer's knickers in a twist as you'll win in court. You're entitled to a full refund of the product.. You could get money back if you'd requested some sort of compensation.... I might be wrong but it worked for me when I bought a monitor that was advertised as having AMD freesync... it was high refreshrate but didn't support this feature.... I'm sure you sorted this anyways by now.....

  • I just bought the ADATA SX8200Pro, the synthetic tests i ran are nowhere near the promised speeds (IOPS/Random read/Random write/Sequential RW u name it). The real-life perf tests by moving/copying/reading 2.5gb zip files dont match near close the speeds promised. All tests done on a clean win10 pro installation with stopped unusual services. I swapped my samsung 960 evo for this and im really disappointed with ADATA.

    • It started from Adata. Adata changed the controller with the slower SM2262G. Adata said that they are shipping the 2262EN and SM2262G at the same time. They intentionally gave reviewing samples which are the EN variant which are faster and now started to ship the G variant (which is slower and cheaper). The boxes are also the same.. So you play russian roulette when buying them. Edit: Also the SM2262ENG is the same as SM2262EN controller, so there might be still lucky guys Edit2: Also can you check your controller if it’s G or EN, I’m gathering data about that case.. Thanks if you can

  • The problem with such revisions is that *I've yet to see a hardware store that actually puts up any information at all* about hardware revisions -- so if you're shopping for a particular component, it's nigh impossible to get this information unless you can actually get at the device itself. Sadly, I've yet to see a shop that actually allows you to unbox a device _before you buy it_ and these markings are often only on the device itself. This ultimately means that you may end up searching for performance reviews, purchase the exact model indicated, and end up getting scammed (or, what it amounts to). Customers are *not made aware* of such revisions, and oftentimes searching specifically for them is also a pain. :/

  • Well Systems have different degradation periods for each component - CPU - 5-10 years/Core upgrade from feature sets or breakthrough performance levels Mobo - When you either have to upgrade the CPU or new feature sets RAM - When it changes on the mobo, or there is a noticable difference in performance on a changed CPU GPU - Depends on how much you spend typically the Cheaper the more often you will be replacing it, a sub $300 GPU will be replaced most likely every 1-2 years when as $400-500 you have about 3-4 years, and $600+ depends on whether you are a prosumer or a consumer and want the freshness goody or make planned proper upgrades where you can get 4-6 Years when the arch changes enough to net you a huge performance increase as well as new features. Typically people should upgrade every other gen and just set aside money for the upgrade cadence. Storage - When you run out or it dies or slows to a crawl and gets changed to an external. So I mean its not uncommon for components to get swapped on an irregular rate.

  • Regarding calling in to sales for the secret shopper, maybe a work around would be to spec out something close online, then call in to ask if they can customize the computer after purchase. That would test their sales team as well as their online experience, plus you see how responsive they are to customer requests vs sticking to the assembly line process.

  • You absolutely should go back to Dell about it. You have weight because of your audience not to mention an actual AV recording of the order. If you don't report dodgy call centre staff it will never change. You complaining may actually make them do something if the right person sees it. Not saying you should sue, but certainly make Dell aware of it, even do a video to show how they handle the complaint/the complaint procedure. Could be useful stuff.

  • dude, do you even know attorneys or have any working for your company? Dell clearly committed fraud and small claims isn't the proper recourse - it's a class action. Obviously if that happened to you, it's probably happened to thousands of people. As much as people hate attorneys, they wouldn't even be necessary if people like you didn't ignore every time you get fucked over like this. You're exactly why companies like Dell aren't afraid to behave like this.
