I ordered and paid for a new Samsung EVO850 SSD. The SSD that I received arrived in only an anti-static envelope with part of the drive label removed (sn# for warrantee?). No manufacturers box or manual.

We had an issue where the wrong part was delivered. Brute took care of us by shipping the correct part and allowing us to keep the incorrect part for our troubles (which doubled as a backup for another switch we have). We greatly appreciate the time and effort to resolve this issue quickly and affordably.

Brute Networks--My Grade

I would recommend but with caution. This seller will charge you shipping and restocking if you need to make a return. other companies, on the contrary, will not. This seller better change its ways if it hopes to remain competitive with other companies.

So Sad
7/20/2020 6:26:23 PM

I would not recommend at this time. I paid 40% extra to get the part (memory) delivered earlier than other vendors and it failed to arrive on time. Then....it does not fit although it was supposed to fit. We will see how the return goes.

Excellent and timely customer service
7/13/2020 6:47:11 AM

I would recommend Brute Networks. They shipped me memory for a server being configured. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the engineer was slow to discover that the additional memory was not necessary for our application. When I went to return the product, I found that the 30 days for NewEgg returns had been exceeded by one day and NewEgg would be unable to help. I sent Brute Networks an email explaining my predicament and was immediately give the okay to return the memory. No questions asked! Now we're not talking a lot of money here, but every little bit helps. I will definitely be coming back to Brute Networks if I need something. Their customer service was easy!

I highly recommend Brute Networks. I mistakenly purchased two wrong hard drives for my HP Proliant G8 Server. I emailed them the problem and they were able to resolve my problem right away and sent me the correct one the next day. The exchange process was so smooth and easy. I highly recommend buying from Brute Networks. The service provided by Christian Pantages was outstanding. His response were fast and accurate. He also followed up and kept me informed. This is truly outstanding service from Brute Networks. I definitely will buy it again from them and recommend them to others.

Item misrepresented in listing
7/3/2020 1:50:00 PM

The CPU I purchased was shown as a retail CPU box in the listing image and did not have the words "OEM", "Bulk" or "Tray" anywhere in the listing. However, on the day it was shipped, I received a message from the seller that said: "this processor is new bulk and will ship tray packed, not in retail box." I responded saying I was surprised by this, asked if they could include a fan, and mentioned the cost of a new OEM fan if they wanted to partially refund me in some way instead. That was 3 days ago. I have not received a response, but have already received my item since I paid for next day shipping (and got it 2 days after I placed my order). Upon initial inspection the CPU seems okay (can boot into bios and read proc information), but I cannot perform any further testing as I have no heatsink, and must now wait over the long holiday weekend for a substitute to arrive.
