MSY has become infamous among the tech community for its lacklustre user interface and functionality.
The reseller's website went online in 2002 and has gone largely unchanged since 2009 other than minor improvements over time. The site has copped flak from customers for its outdated UI, such as each link opening or new tab or a PDF file.
