    Yeah. Old Volkswagens, Samsung basic phones and TVs, certain clothing brand loyalties, was loyal to Apple with their Power Macs and then their MacBook Pro line for the first two generations but my loyalty to Apple is gone and am going to be replacing with an all-in-one that runs W8. Oh, and I'm pretty loyal to run-on sentences.

    I was anti-loyal to htc after a horrible experience with an android phone, but the 8x has turned my opinion of them upside down(so far). I also love Nokia as my first cellphone was from them.
    When it comes time to buy something I do a lot of research first, every brand has fail products as well as win products.

    I had a Lumina 710 and loved it. When it came to getting WP8 I was torn. I thought Nokia was so accustomed to WP that it would be better. No lie kinda felt a little sentimental about Nokia from back in the day. Although I wanted the N920 I got the N810 because the 920 isn't on TMobile. Thought about HTC but just haven't been impressed.

    If a certain brands proves to be reliable for me, I'll stick with it until it makes me mad or no longer works for me. Then I'll switch. Blind loyalty? Heck no.

    " Oh, and I'm pretty loyal to run-on sentences."

    Your post made me lol...and your sig made me smile.

    Loyal to Acura cars and Sony TVs...but this was about phones I think. Just purchased my first Nokia, a 920, and I think I might become a Nokia loyalist...we shall see!

    Not with my phones. Too many killer devices for that!

    I can be a bit with my laptops. I tend to buy only Asus and Lenovo, just because I've seen the take massive abuse.

    Tools I tend to only buy from Matco anymore.

    Camera gear is where my wife and I get die hard. We're a Nikon family. Works to my advantage though, because I can steal from her high end stash to use on my projects (she's the photographer, I'm just a geek).

    I used to be back when brand names actually stood for something. These days I do research into products I'm interested in and go from there. There are however, some brands I stay away from.

    I'm absolutely brand loyal, but not blindly.

    As a rule, I support Microsoft... their products have, after all, kept me gainfully employed with companies as a system administrator for 20 years. That's not to say I think they're perfect, but I certainly don't think they're "evil".

    I used HTC phones for years, but after seeing how they handle software updates for their phones, I made a switch to Nokia this time around. I'm extremely pleased with the decision.

    I'm also brand loyal for other things.. I'm a Cisco guy for network equipment, Dell for PC's, Samsung for TV's, Nissan for cars, Hefty for trash bags, Crest for toothpaste, etc. I don't necessarily have animosity towards other companies, it's just a philosophy of using what I know works for me. If I have repeated problems, I reconsider.

    I also prefer Crest toothpaste, but I'll use Colgate.

    I took after my dad wrt toothpaste. My dad preferred Crest, but my mom preferred Colgate. We had both kinds in the house when I was a kid, depending on which happened to be on sale.

    I also like Coke better than Pepsi, but I'll drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available.

    I always buy Maxwell House coffee.

    I've had AT&T as my wireless provider as long as I've had a mobile phone (it was Cingular when I got my first mobile phone).

    Well for phones, I've always known Nokia to be solid, and my new 822 is proving that. Other phones I trust are Samsung and Motorola.

    For computers, I always like ASUS for their premium build quality on their products. And people are going to hate me for this, but I've always like Dell for their solid mid-range hardware.

    For TVs, Samsung all the way.

    For cars, Nissan for the low end (as if the GTR is low end, pssh), BMW for the high end.

    I am planning to buy a Nokia as my next phone based on all the people with Nokia loyalty. I hope to become one of them.

    As far as TV's I am a Toshiba guy all the way. I have strayed but have always been disappointed.

    None at all - well a little bit to some food products but consumer electronics? No consumers should be constantly hounding companies with faults and problems and willing to switch at the drop of a hat between brands - it forces companies to be competitive. When you select a product which is inferior because you are loyal to a certain brand (that doesn't care about you), you are encouraging mediocrity.
