Don't Buy From MDG

If you've ever seen those ads on tv about buying a computer from some company or other, you'll know what I'm talking about. Take my advice and you will save some money and a lot of aggravation.


I saw their ad on the tube and thought it would be an easy way of getting a good computer relatively quick. Big mistake.

I've had this computer (P4, 17" flat-screen monitor, 80 gig HD, 1 gig Ram, CD burner, printer, sub-woofer spkr system, programs out the wahzoo) for just over 3 years and what follows is exactly what happened.

  • Computer system arrived(Aug. 2005). Everything was included as per arrangement. Speaker system no good. Parts broken inside and rattling around. Replacement ordered.

  • Replacement speaker system arrives. Works great, for six months then dies. Spend $30.00 on new and better set-up (Not from MDG).

  • Rebate offered on scanner/copier/printer not honoured, lose out on $100.00. Eighteen months after receiving computer system, needed to purchase new printer. Canon Pixma is great for family photos.

  • Has got real noisey the past 6 or 8 months. Makes enough noise, my neighbours in the next apt. have told me they can hear it at night.

  • This weekend (Nov 1, 2008), the 17" flat-screen monitor died. Now must use an old used Dell CRT monitor untill I can afford to get flat-screen fixed.

  • Unable to add more hard-drives or other pieces of hardware due to the way MDG sets up their systems.

To date, I have paid more than $1,500.00 and still have not finished paying it off.
