If you are in the US (you didn't fill out a profile) don't even consider buying from anyone execpt for a US brick and mortar store or an online dealer with a 4.5 or 5 star rating by Price or one of the other comparitive shopping sites.

Also, never buy any electronics except with a credit card (you have dispute rights for 60 days). No exceptions!

It is a SCAM
by TerryKiwi / January 23, 2006 2:56 PM PST

This site was covered on TV News in New Zealand January 24th. It is exposed as a fraud. The owner at the address in Jervois Road has no knowledge of the operation. Both Trust-E and Verisign spokesmen stated it is a fraud and advised everybody not to go there.
The news item then focussed on a particular item advertised as for sale, which in fact is not yet released. It was stated that they take your money, deliver nothing.

Also, a Price Waterjouse spokesman stated that the site is in the US, not NZ.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
