I'd just blacklist gamefly. Companies get one mistake in my book. Just one, then they get blacklisted.
So far on my blacklist:
- Creative(actual creative products, not Fostex OEMs)
Fok them. Fok them all.
+1 for Asus and Creative.
Everything I have ever purchased from ASUS has had serious flaws, including my Zenbook that I waited 3 weeks for RMA (just recently). The Zenbook had its issues fixed but they introduced new problems! Now I suffer a loose hinge, keyboard flex, and the ******* did not take the time to screw in the touchpad properly........
Lets add HP to the list shall we?

ASUS, OCN have all been pretty schiitty in terms of responces I get from them. ASUS USA support is quite terribad. And OCN is filled with non objectivists for the most part. HOWEVER. OCN does still have objectivists that have large followings for it. Good stuff there.
I'm pretty pissed right now at Gamefly for this.
Origin is the worst, purchased DLC content and never received it. What's funny is that they won't give me the DLC, nor refund me my money.......

I know it's all about luck, but if I have one defective product, I just don't buy anything from them again.
I kind of hate Dell too, because my monitor developed a fault 6 months outside warranty. Bad luck that the new Australian consumer laws weren't in place when I got the monitor, or else they'd still have to replace it even though its outside warranty.
I'm starting to despise Logitech now too, I always get the double-click problem with their mice, very annoying.
If you hate Gigabyte you're dead to me
I buy components all the time, Gigabyte has never once failed on me.. Heck even my $25 budget gigabyte PSU is still kicking after 5 years, cannot say the same for my more expensive ones.
My all time top 10 list of horrible manfs (No particular order, but ASUS is the worst lol).
1 - ASUS | 9/10 products I own from ASUS have major defects
2 - HP | every HP product I own has ceased to work and needed to be replaced, except for my Palm Pre 3 / Touchpad (Technically HP lol)
3 - Thermaltake | Their PSUs and Heatsinks are junk, I wouldn't even dare dabble into their other products.
4 - Razer | Poor quality products, flashy but very poor quality. Good luck trying to dominate your enemy when you're trying to wrap your cord to fix the connection.
5 - Apple | Need I even explain?
7 - MSI | ^
8 - Monster | ^
9 - ASrock | ^ And their customer support is trash too lol
10 - HIS | ^^ And I thought ASrock had bad customer support
