Not Norecco II's fault.... yah right. Last 5 days I have had a power outtage where I live 4 of those days (3 of them just short outtages 20 minutes or less). In the last 2 weeks I have heard the transformer blow a few times. This is from overloaded transformers and p*ss poor planning from Norecco II who are trying to cheap on everything while charging us up the a$$. Yes, NGCCP (or however its spelled) does cause a lot of brownouts imagine how many less we would have if Norecco II and its buddy companies actually built and maintained a proper grid and current.
If only we could have everyone in Dumaguete bring Norecco II bills for all the costs of dead appliances, dead surge protectors, dead electronics, and dead AVR's that were worn down far before their time should have been due to a horrible grind and brownouts especially unplanned ones.
Jack, we know your wife works for the devil and no offense on her but that doesn't mean the rest of us will start smiling at the devil while the devil screws us over. My suggestion like Wyre is either accept we won't be happy and avoid these threads.
