    Hi all,
    Has anyone dealt with a company in the uk called Amsys??
    The screen on my iMac started to go patchie so I got in touch with AppleCare.
    They sent a currier to collect it and it was sent to Amsys. This was Monday of last week and the iMac was returned to me on Friday. Within minutes of me getting it back I hooked it up only to find the screen not working at all. The iMac was collected again this morning by the same currier and is on its way back to Amsys. I was wondering if anyone else has had any similar issues with this company.

    Hi Charley,

    I only posted on the forum to see if I could get any sort of feedback as I've never heard of the company and not to offend anyone, so sorry if I have.

    My iMac screen was going a bit patchy and as far as I know, the fix was a straight screen replacement. It just seems strange that when I got it back, the screen wasn't working at all and according to the paperwork that came back with it, it had gone through the test process with no problems.

    I had a terrible experience with you a while back.

    The hard drive failed on my iMac (after about 8 months) and after calling Apple Care they sent you to collect it.

    The drive was replaced by you, but the replacement was making a horrible noise so you had to collect it again to replace the drive a second time.

    When the iMac was returned to me the second time, there was a load of dust behind the screen ... so you had to collect it again, to "clean it".

    The iMac was retuned to me (again) but dust was still appearing behind the screen ... so you had to collect it and take it back to "clean it", yet again!

    The iMac actually had to be returned to you a further time for a further "clean" as the dust problem was still apparent, even after the previous "clean".

    I was without my machine for ages, all in all, and this was for something as simple as replacing a hard drive.

    I really wanted my machine repaired at my home but was told by you (Amsys) that you would have to repair it in your static free environment to prevent dust contamination ... ahem?

    Now, approximately 4 weeks back my screen packed up (I have only had the machine for 3 years and 9 months which is not long for any computer) and I SWEAR this is due to all of the rigmarole which I encountered with the "repair" with you guys (Amsys).

    My Apple Care ran out several months back so I am now stuck with a perfectly working iMac apart from a screen which does not work. I managed to lend a MBP and connected to it via target disk mode and everything works as normal, so I know it's the screen which is faulty and once again I am certain that your shoddy performance is the reason for its early death.

    Completely, totally and utterly unhappy with you, Amsys.

    If you "take enormous pride in delivering a first class service" I don't know how you would describe my experience?

    I actually think you should do the right thing a take my machine and rectify this problem for me, as a good will gesture if nothing else ...

    Hi All,

    My imac came back today and have just hooked it all up.

    Good news, all (so far) is well, i've checked the new screen for any dead pixels, lines and wierd patches and all seems good.

    Hopefully it'll be good for a few more years :)

    Cockney Rebel, did you get in touch with Charley and get your imac issues sorted??
