But we’re not talking about the open sea.
We’re talking about crummy equipment.
There are good products and there are great products. Knowing the difference is what will save you money and time. And if you think paying less right off the bat is the way to go, think again.
There’s a scene in the movie, “Moonstruck” in which Mr. Castorini, a plumber, is talking about pipes. He says, “There are 3 types of pipes. There’s the first one, which is garbage. Then there’s bronze, which is very good. UNLESS, something goes wrong. And something always goes wrong. And then, there’s copper which is the only pipe I use. I costs money. It costs money because it saves money.”
Now there’s a man who understands great product.
While you might be tempted to save money in the interim, there’s always a chance you spend more. Because sooner rather than later you will have to replace a part, pay for tune ups, shell out cash for minor services, spend time second guessing this feature or that unwanted element.
Or, you can go to an absolute expert in the field who not only installs the items but only use the highest standard items possible.
Someone else said similar things less eloquently. I have no idea who coined the phrase, “You get what you pay for” but it seems to resonate nicely with the theme of this entry.
At any rate, have a look at Jim explaining why CableSupply.com is different from the competition. He demonstrates this by showing us all the difference between a good patch panel port system and a GREAT patch panel port system. (My title reference was a stretch but, meh. It works. Port. Port. There you go.) Guess which one he personally uses and chooses to sell on the website?
Here’s a hint: CableSupply.com only sells the best.
