    Monarch Furia @ [H] Consumer

    sometimes I think that companies with even the best intentions can lose "focus". I mean, look at Monarch. They must have done a lot of things right, to get where they are now. and although it doesn't show from this review, they must have happy customers. In fact, a lot of them. Then how is...

    PC Club ENP612 Laptop Evaluation @ [H] Consumer

    I'm another one of those customers.... thx for the review I've read the previous reviews as well, and it makes me wonder: How can a company change so drastically so quickly? I do assume PCClub's management will want to react to this. If they don't, it shows that everything that was said in...
