I think you're missing the point. The PCs I sell I take pride in, and they all look good, from the cheapest to the most expensive.
See, the thing is, the pictures on the PCs that they list look far better than that one. I would expect, myself, that the PC i buy appears as the pictured ones do.
Like, I understand your side of this too, but to me, that's unacceptable. That's why I build my own PCs, becuase stuff like that is unacceptable.
Of course, I've worked at a large retailer here in town. I would do wire management even for the $500 PCs, and I was building 75-100 PCs a week, and doing it faster than anyone else that worked there. Mind you, I'm also the guy doing motherboard reviews for no pay, and not once have I missed a deadline..because I have no deadlines. Work needs to be done...I do it. Sacrificing quality because you're not paid for it is just not something that fits with my personality.
