“Happy with the machine”

Written on: 01/06/2014 by Annalise109 (1 review written)

I ordered goods from website, very easy. Prices pretty good, so went ahead with order. Goods arrived as requested (Saturday delivery). Basically PC comes with Windows 8.1 installed, and components set up. Ready for you to install all your software of choice. However when I connected to internet to get updates, my Soundblaster card software wanted to update (oddly) and after updating the software, no sound. However, after reinstalling from supplied CD all fine again. Small glitch from the guys… Read Full Review

“Very pleased ”

Written on: 01/06/2014 by Owensdt336 (1 review written)

Was very pleased with the AMD A4 systems you supplied. Your web site was easy to negotiate and order placement simple. The quality of the build was very good and when programmed with Windows 7 they are suitably fast computers. The packaging was again very good but the delivery could have been a little quicker. Overall I would deal with you again and give you 4 stars for this transaction… Read Full Review

“Replacing my 8 year old Dell”

Written on: 11/04/2014 by SaraiO'Grady486 (1 review written)

When my 8 year old Dell's motherboard 'blew' I needed a replacement quickly and not too expensively (I'm a pensioner these days). I certainly didn't want to buy something with loads of bells & whistles I wouldn't use ! Build-a-Box gave me a basic machine with blank hard drive from which I re-built my system. They didn't have the motherboard I'd selected but upgraded me without extra charge, whilst another minor difficulty was sorted with no problems. Ordered on one Wednesday, received as… Read Full Review

“Cowboy PC Builder Aggressive & Abusive”

Written on: 25/11/2013 by wolfnk (1 review written)

I recently bought a custom built liquid cooled gaming PC for £3000+ from these guys. It is clear that in reality they are a couple of lads working from a shoddy house in the North of England yet window dressing their company up to appear more than they are. At best their work is mediocre, but even worse they lie on their website and are personally aggressive, abusive and offensive to customers, see another customers previous post to back this up. When I got the PC it malfunctioned within 48… Read Full Review

“Good quality machine and delivery service.”

Written on: 16/11/2013

Very happy with the service and the quality of the machine. I needed a dedicated PC for my work, which is mainly statistical analysis on Linux. As such, I knew exactly what I needed and picking my specs and hardware allowed for a very good deal. Creating the order online was extremely easy and delivery was very fast and professional… Read Full Review
