Have you ever regretted a purchase?

Recommended Posts

I bought a motherboard one time that did not support SLI but only crossfire, serves me right for not researching before my purchase :(  

That motherboard still sits in my room collecting dust  :angry:

I regretted purchasing the Soyo Dragon KT400 Black Edition motherboard. I didn't have the chance to check it out until after the warranty was up, and though it works still, it absolutely has always refused to flash the BIOS or OC whatsoever. The board was advertised and promoted as a great OC'r and easy to update, lots of options for RAM, etc., but the unit I got wouldn't do anything but "just work" as if a mobo in an HP or something. I think that goes to say a good deal of what killed the company.

Hmmmm I can't remember regretting any hardware I purchased. I tend to do a lot of research before buying hardware because well... I'm not a rich guy and hard earned money needs to be spent wisely. I read reviews, ask around and go to stores I trust. Sometimes, I spend so much time doing research that when I decide to purchase the product, it's already gone! LOL

Before, I usually get this itch of upgrading my hardware up to a point I know I don't need such as getting an i7 to replace my unlocked i5. I don't edit videos and do heavy photoshop and so on. I would probably regret upgrading! If we talk about ANYTHING, well... it's got to be the coffee maker I purchased! The pot broke after 3 weeks X_X

I wouldn't really say regret but there have been a few times I wished I had not been so cheap and opted for the better/more expensive version of something. Like my first SSD was 128GB and was not big enough for all I had planned for it lol.

I am at that point right now... I mean, my system boots up super quick but I'd love my games to load up just as quick ^^

i would have to say that i regret buying Speakers for my computer and it wasn't compatible with my pc. The excitement i felt waiting for my package, opening it, loving how sweet they looked and then discovering that they have a plug in i don't support.

sad times.

Only regret one purchase. And that was the Only Case I bought that wasn't a Tt. It shall remain nameless but it was by far the worst purchase I have ever made.  Side panels wouldn't stay on, little doors wouldn't stay up, and impossible to get to GPU brackets.  Just Horrible.
