At ASDmicro we don't offer technical support - we believe no advice is better than bad advice With 1000s of items Ranging from entry level product to enterprise class items it's impossible for us to be experts, Therefore we don't pretend to be, we'd rather be honest and let you know we're not going to attempt it.
14.1To the best of our Knowledge we will point you on the web to find good technical information. You can check the manufactures website and there are lots of other websites such as Google.
14.2Many manufactures also have technical support phone lines with experts that answer questions specifically on their technology. These people are more apt in providing answers rather than us learning about 1000's of products.
14.3 Even if it were possible it's not commercially viable for us specially whilst maintaining our low prices.
14.3.1 If we did offer technical support we'd want to be able to answer any question a customer could ask correctly and not just waste their time, That would mean employing good quality experts, paying them above average salaries, having enough of them to answer the phone quickly , at the price we sell we'd lose more money than we'd ever make. Besides we don't think we should charge you for support that may not Bear fruition.
