When you talk about shipment volume of a certain product, which one of the followings is more appropriate?
- 30,000 pcs per year
- 30,000 units (or unit?) per year
So should I avoid using "pcs"? Or is it still acceptable?
30,000 PCs or 30,000 units
The above "PCs" looks like a plural form of "PC" (personal computers). True?When I wrote "pcs" above, I used it as a shortend form of "pieces". Is this abbreviation not used commonly?
You can use it as long as you put a period at the end. Abbreviations should have periods to show that they're abbreviations.
