ZDNet Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
ZDNet is a business technology news website published by CBS Interactive, along with TechRepublic. The brand was founded on April 1, 1991, as a general interest technology portal from Ziff Davis and evolved into an enterprise IT-focused online publication owned by CNET Networks.
Esther Hunt wrote why ZDNET sucks "I was told that I would receive $45 egift rewards after purchasing a one-year membership of Sam's club from ZDNet online. However, I have never received the $45 egift rewards after I made the payment. There is no phone number for customer service" while an anonymous user shared "ZDNET does extremely poor journalism usually plagiarised from other people's work with a thinly disguised bias towards all things Apple"
Jimmy James says"I purchased a membership to Sam's Club through them and an option popped up for $100 with of store credit for $80 along with the membership, I jumped on it like a dummy!! Come to find out I had no $100 credit at Sam Club at all, it for for ZDNet's store and all they have for sale is a bunch of overpriced cheap Chinese junk!!! Luckily I paid by PayPal so I can file a dispute with them! The least the outfit could do is offer a customer service number but they dont have enough respect for their customers to do that, they just leave you days at a time hanging out in the cold waiting for a return email!!"
Kevin Herron Kevin says"This site is a total scam. They are only collecting your data. Total phishing. Avoid it. Delete it. Tell your friends. They get your data and then abruptly cancel your transaction. These are the very worst, slimiest scammers out there. Don’t fall gor their lies."

Customer says"Extremely poor journalism usually plagiarised from other peoples work with a thinly disguised bias towards all things Apple. They lack any real credibility publishing rehashed stories with click-bait titles. If you're looking to keep up with today's technology, don't look here. Absolutely every review ZDNet publish is grovellingly compared to Apple products."
A simple skeptic says"I have been a ZDnet reader for some years, and generally find its publications interesting, and sometimes useful. However a recent iteration of their hardware bulletin contained an advertisement for ... ... wait for it ... A HOROSCOPE AND CLAIRVOYANT SITE! Yep. A bulletin aimed at computer professionals and serious enthusiasts is promoting ant-scientific nonsense! I first thought it might be a satire site, so I clicked through. Nope. The ad was real. I wrote to ZDNet expressing my shock and concern, and received in reply a dismissive non-specific template answer of the "thanks for your feedback" variety. No mention whatsoever of the issue I was addressing. I've cancelled my subscriptions to all of ZDNet's newsletters."
