eMachines / Should not be allowed to operate

1 United States Review updated:

We are being fleeced by this "computer" company and it is time someone goes in and exposes them for the frauds they are. junk is going out the door packaged to resemble computers but unfortunately for the unresearched buyer they do not perform!! i bought an emachines desktop model t5082 less than 2 yrs ago and it is horridly slow and sounds like a jet engine on takeoff. there are 6 usb ports, they do me no good bc only 1 of them work. and the one that does work has my internet service plugged in to it which means i can not plug in my printer, scanner, fax, camera, etc. i wish i had looked at all of the complaints online before buying and i would have saved all this frustration and WASTED MONEY. money is too hard to come by these days to be buying junk that literally falls apart from the day you open the box and only gets worse. DO NOT BUY EMACHINES

    Civil Justice Initiative is researching a class action suit against eMachines, a Gateway Inc. product. In the circumstance at issue a consumer purchased an eMachine EL1352G-01w for $298 which crashed in just 17 days. Acer support (included with the warranty) repeatedly lied to and deceived the purchaser as well as failed to live up to their 7 day return policy when the product had to be sent in to their repair center in Texas. This is alleged to be in violation of their warranty and service agreement. Civil Justice Initiative is seeking statements from individuals with similar experiences to help establish the fact that these "cheaper" model computers are composed of substandard components and designed to break down. These substandard products are generally sold to the lower income class who is less likely to be able to pursue legal action so we'd like to do something about that. If you've had a similar experience with an eMachine, Acer, or Gateway PC please visit our site at for more information or to provide a statement. The article on this matter is to the immediate right at our Home Page. -Thank You
