However, customer comments in regards to their experience with said products are the opinions of the user. The customer opinion reviews are used at the discretion of Computer Care as a marketing device for positive and constructive ways to share the benefit of the product. It is not used as a source for negative commentary as we cannot endorse the validity of any negative comment. Therefore, the Computer Care site is moderated to remove any unproven biased negative comments. It is not the intention of Computer Care to mislead any customer and therefore all purchase decisions should not be solely based on the product review.
