TyburnField's review of APPLE iMac Flat Panel

★☆☆☆☆

“Dreadful Apple Product ”

Written on: 27/09/2014 by TyburnField (2 reviews written)

I have had this iMac for about three months, I nearly took it back after two days and I regret not doing so now. I have nothing good to say about this expensive product. Among its faults, but not all of them are constant freezing especially in address box, you may be able to open website if you can get that far! Be prepared for more expense for external hard drives and other devices. There is not facility to load disks etc. I photo is reasonable but difficult to view photos read if exported. Unable to connect Kodak printer despite Apple saying you can, I have tried about seven or times but It will not allow anything unless from Apple. There is much more wrong with this expensive trash and nothing to like about it.

Apple support is non existent, hours on the telephone resulting in a big bill without actually getting an support.

I will avoid anything to do with Apple in the future. Absolutely awful company, despite what they promote off themselves! Awful company, awful product. The worst piece of technology I have ever bought. Best to avoid.

Worthington28's Response to TyburnField's Review

Written on: 24/05/2018

What a lot of rubbish this reviewer has written. I suspect it is a malicious anti Apple rant. Or someone who is trying to connect hardware that is causing problems, not their Mac.

For a start, Apple support lines are 0800 numbers so are free. Then there are the free geniuses in Apple stores. Finally there is a huge amount of support online. Shops such as John Lewis, Curry’s and PC World also offer free technical support.

Apple computers connect using USB to any USB drive on the market. plus the incredibly fast Intel Thunderbolt bus will also connect to Thunderbolt and FireWire drives as well.

As long as your Kodak printer isn’t obsolete and you have installed the free printer drivers, you will be able to connect to any printer on the market. Apple supplies most drivers in their free operating systems and more are available for download. Apple stopped making their own printers about 20 years ago.

iPhoto can save in every current image format, as can Preview, included free with your Mac. There are also free applications available that will save your images in any format you need.

Finally, Apple has an enviable reputation around the world for the quality of their products, their level of support and ease of use. They were, after all, using windows, icons and pointers, colour monitors, networking, WYSIWYG fonts, USB, stereo sound… while PCusers were still having to bang rocks together and only got close a decade later.
