Eurofag here.

I personally try to avoid American, and Chinese companies.
American companies because they're Jews and try to get as much money out of you as possible, like through lack of functionality that you have to pay extra for, or through subscription services, overpriced products, etc.
And Chinese products because of their lack of a worldwide presence, meaning you have to import everything from there, pay huge import fees and wait weeks, and then the quality might end up crappy and you don't want to send it back.
Lenovo is an exception (they're Chinese, right?).

I normally go with superior Japanese quality.

Yeah, COMODO are trying to trademark "Let's Encrypt" from under the real Let's Encrypt. After Let's Encrypt was founded.

technically I never did buy from them, but I received an iPod as a gift. I was greatly annoyed by the fact that it did nothing unless iTunes, and all its shit, was around to tell it the magic words.

>Amazon
Well, not strictly true. I'm happy to go on their site and buy from third-party sellers, but I'm not going to buy anything that Amazon sells first-party, because they hitched their wagon to "fast delivery" more than "low prices". Fuck you, I want my shit cheaper, and I'll wait a few extra days for it to get it cheaper. Fuckers collect sales tax now, too, which third-parties rarely if ever do.

The last stable and beta drivers AMD released for it were shit. Games crash or run like shit even on a fresh install of 7 or 10. Also when it was released, the performance varied dramatically between games so Nvidia's weaker card would out perform it a lot. /g/ said that they'll fix the drivers so it shits on the inferior specced 560 ti like it was supposed to do.

My LG flatscreen shat itself when i hooked my ps3 to it (i could see the ps3 menu even with the tv turned off), thankfully i got back to the store just after it happened and complained to them because nowhere did it say that sony stuff wasn't compatible with it, a 5 min talk in the backroom and 50 extra bucks and they let me take a much better bravia instead of that shit, god bless pedro the plebmart manager i went to highschool with.

My nexus 5 also broke just after a week, this time it was the power button, they also offered to change the model since this was a common complaint with the phone, i took an S5.

Both LG devices were my first flatscreen and smartphone, so this left me understandably bitter at the company

I'll probably never buy earbuds from Meelectronic, if that counts

Had 2 of their products crap out on me. Customer service was really nice about it and I got free replacements but then those crapped out on me too.

I'm not him but I run VBox on Linux instead of KVM. I've tried to switch to KVM several times but some problem always comes up. Most recently I had problems connecting to a VPN from a KVM VM, which just werked in a VBox VM.

Samsung electronics division and Samsung phone division are two separate things. I mean fuck, Apple's old iPhones had CPUs made by the prior while competing with the latter.
