My bad luck has been with NZXT, from their cases to their fans.

Consider yourself lucky if your GPU fan lasts for more than 3 months.

What are the brands you avoid?

For example:
Biostar - criminals, doesn't award rebates, dissapears, no support, warranty is complete lie
Patriot Memory - Criminals, fraudsters, sells defective memory knowingly.

I had a Patriot SD Card that failed after little usage and being stored for a long time, never buying anything from them again.

Lite-On and OCZ for sure.

Never bought a product from them that didn't either arrive dead, or fail.

OCZ and PNY both trying to redeem themselves and sticking to what they are good at.

I avoid Seagate personally. 4 of 5 have caput too fast
