geeks.com / devices do not work

1 United States

A few days ago I bought two USB PC to PC cables. They are used to transfer data from one computer to another.
On the internet I found geeks.com. Since most of computer related products do not work properly, I bought two different devices... hoping that one of them works. If this would have been the case, I would not waste my time telling you my story.
Anyway, both devices do not work... not on XP and not on Vista, They do not work on 3 different laptops and 2 desktops I tried. One device (BAFO BF-7313) suppose to come with a install CD... there was none, so I downloaded drivers from the BAFO web-site... installed them and get the message "driver not found". Device Manager tells me that the "Device is not functioning".
The other device is called "Smart PC-link" and it has the drivers internally. Does not work either.

Just in case, you may think that I am just too stupid... I am an Electronics Engineer.

Geeks.com sells garbage from China and Taiwan, forgets to send me the driver CD and then patronizes me when I ask for technical help... Their support web-site is computerized and does not allow me to send my problem description unless I click a box which says: "Have installed driver?"

The problems with computer related products are out of control. Even big companies like Microsoft cannot get it right... see Vista, and a lot of bottom-feeders like geeks.com make money selling garbage.
