Advantages: Cheap crap
Disadvantages: You name it
My story goes as follows: I bought a package computer from them about 4/5 years ago, which seemed to work ok until it developed a problem with the CD-rom drive. Something had gone wrong with the spinning mechanism, so it wouldn't read any kind of CDs without a lot of fiddling.
Fair dos you might say - CD roms are bound to wear out sometime...
so off I sent it to Time Computers HQ... they gave me an estimate of 5 working days which seemed reasonable enough.
A week and a half later it hadn't returned, so I called in and asked what was going on. They said the part wasn't in stock and they would have it out soon.
Eventually, 3 weeks later it arrived back. I set it up, booted it up, only to find to my horror a clean windows desktop. They had deleted EVERY SINGLE bit of data on my computer in the process of "changing the CD rom".
I also have to point out...that the CDrom drive that I got back was the same one and still didn't work.
As you can imagine I was kind of pissed off...they offered me compensation of ...wait for it...
a bundle of CLIPART CDs.
which are worthless, and I couldn't have used them with my broken CD drive anyway.
I decided to sue them and to cut a long story short, several months later we won and they had to pay us money.
So a) don't buy Time, and b) if you do, and they screw you around - hit them where it hurts...their wallet.
