i just spent £60 on a ****ing NETWORK ADAPTER (OF ALL THE THINGS I COULD AFFORD!) and it DOESNT WORK.

striaght away a red flash on it, before i've even gone into network settings.

i cant ring up the helpline either because that's in germany and it's 9-5 (or 8-4) on a sunday here anyway.

thats not good, I haven't actually ever had an issue with any of the ms hardware I've used (mice and keyboards), wifi adapters on the otherhand are the bane of my life, I ended up going lan based to get a working device :)

one of the reasons i hate microsoft is getting things fixed. i dont want to wait until 9am tmrw to call them up to get permission to send it off to go to the post office to pay for postage to get it back a few weeks later with a replacement item just being sent back.

customer service is one of the best things about apple.

yeah don't forget distance selling regs, you should have atleast 7 (usually 30 iirc) days if the product is faulty to return to the store (free post or post repaid etc)

it's imported from germany (despite being an english company) and is off amazon.

i have to pay for postage back to them, but first i have to get my dad to correspond with them in german!
