My sister-in-law Esther got a laptop from Aldi which went wrong
almost at once. (The screen melted according to Esther.)
Aldi were very good at getting her a replacement,
which was different from, and much better than,
the original machine.
I forget the make of the original, but the replacement
was an excellent Sony laptop.
My impression is that both Aldi and Lidl are pretty good
at after-sales service, if anything goes wrong.
I bought an excellent Athlon64 PC at Lidl.
The wireless mouse became a little unresponsive after a time
(probably due to misuse by children).
I asked if I could buy a replacement,
and was sent a new mouse, keyboard and wireless receiver (for these)
free of charge.

I never heard of them.
What are they?
