eMachines / junk computers

1 Irvine, CA, United States Review updated:

i purchased an emachines desktop model t5082 less than 2 years ago. from the beginning it was horridly slow and so loud it sounded like a jet engine. there are 6 usb ports on the computer and guess how many are working, one. this computer is not even 2 yrs old and i have to replace all of my usb ports. the one that is working (for now) has my internet service plugged in to it, so that means i have no place to plug in my printer, scanner, fax, camera, etc. i work from home for the same company for the last 4 yrs and they require my system to meet certain standards. when i purchased the computer it met them all, now less than 2 yrs have passed and it does not meet them. these computers are junk and i am warning everyone out there no matter how tight your budget is, now matter how desperate you may be to get a cheaper system, DO NOT PURCHASE EMACHINE PRODUCTS WHATEVER YOU DO!!! you will see from the other complaints how horrible these things are, please spare yourself the nightmare!!

    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
