I seriously HATE UPS!!!

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
Sup guys? I been lurking for few days but I decided to sign up.

Ordered my first gaming rig on Wednesday from Newegg.

Quote:
Case: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz
RAM: G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3
GPU: GIGABYTE GV-R695UD-1GD Radeon HD 6950 1GB 256-bit GDDR5
PSU: Antec EarthWatts EA-650 GREEN 650W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS
MOTHERBOARD: MSI P67A-G43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
CD-ROM: LITE-ON CD/DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model
Never built a computer before but I think I can do it. I'm pretty tech savvy.

By the way UPS is taking forever to deliver it. It says it's going to deliver by end of the day and it's killing me

Yay more haters for UPS.

What I don't like about them is that they come at such random times that you can never predict when they will be at your door.

Plus the pick-up facility is open for very limited hours as well, so on some days I had to wait until the following day (only to find out that they decided to come around 3pm instead of 6:30pm like the day before)

I understand that they take care of business addressed first, but that shouldn't be an excuse for them to delay OUR delivery. I mean think about it, if you are not able to deliver most of the stuffs within reasonable amount of time, aren't you as a company losing so much money for having to come back again and again?

I know I shouldn't be ranting like this on a payday, but just saying...

And welcome to OCN! You can certainly build your rig just fine sir. So did I. There were few mistakes here and there, but if you plan and do it carefully, you just can't mess up. Good luck!

UPS @ my place always come at 2 time frame, either around 1.30pm or 4pm and they're pretty nice. I guess it depends on locations tho, but overall im satisfied with UPS at my place. Btw, i hate waiting too especially something that you want it to be here so much.
