Very displeased with the Medion service. I got a Medion P4 and it keeps giving up on me, but the service is the poorest. Especially since earlier in the week I was told they would be sending me something to repair the problem. Still waiting… Read Full Review

No good having lots of features if graphics card keeps melting its fan which hangs upside down definatly a major design fault in my opinion as have now replaced three graphics cards in 3 years, now wont replace any more as outside of warranty period last one lasted 5 weeks cannot use normal graphics card as medions, fitted one comes with special plug for playing back via scart to tv no other card has this plug so tv playback is no longer possible once you change their fitted card.

So wonderful! This batch was probably specially made for that special 'angebote', offer. I don't think I will buy any notebook from another brand. I bought my Medion P4 computer system in October 2003, and it still performs as well in October 2006 as it did in 2003. I had a 3 year guarantee, but nothing has happened to it so far… Read Full Review

I've had the Medion P4 MD 8083 computer system for more than 2 years now, and it still performs brilliantly! I was even considering getting another one, but I couldn't justify it.

Customer support were very friendly and helpful.

I would recommend it to all my friends.

Written on: 22/12/2005 by William Greene (1 review written)

The Medion P4 PC is our third Medion, including a laptop. All are working fine and never needed repairs. One call to tech support for a problem I created installing software was handled promptly by a knowledgeable tech rep. While on the line I complained about short battery life on the laptop, and they sent me a new battery with a mailer to return the old one.

I found this site looking for somewhere to buy another machine. Aldi only stocks them on rare occasions!… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/11/2005 by alex maule (1 review written)

We have owned 2 Medion laptops, bought originally from Staples. The second one is a replacement of the first which spent so much time in their workshops having just about every part replaced, that they did agree to replace the whole laptop. The replacement laptop has lasted about 10 months before also refusing to start. We returned it to Medion under their guarantee, and it has now spent more than 6 weeks in their workshop. Despite at least 10 phone calls to their 'helpline', I have been… Read Full Review

I purchased a Medion 4210 Composer in January 2005. To date I have contacted Medion twice on the phone - once for service, and once for advice. I was treated promptly and expertly both times. I like the computer very much, and find it excellent to use, especially with the photo work that I do a lot of, with the card reader at my side for the digital camera. I would buy this product again… Read Full Review

We bought this computer from Aldi (Medion Titanium 8386), and after two weeks, it stop working. After several attempts, we managed to speak with an 'advisor' who was not an engineer, and who "guessed" it was the hard drive. After a week they sent the engineer. Days after, the computer failed again, and this time they say it is the motherboard. It will come next week (two weeks waiting, lost data, no computer)… Read Full Review

Based upon reading the reviews from the others, it definitely appears that the Medion P4 has a quality control problem. The first unit I brought home from Best Buy also wouldn't boot. Definitely an issue with the motherboard. However based upon the components included and the price I was willing to take a chance on the brand… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/12/2004 by harleyman (1 review written)

On Nov 1st I purchased a MD8084XL Medion P4 from Aldi's. This is my 4th Medion computer. Although the first one, an MD300, proved to be slow and not accectable, I purchased another because of there good support. After 10 days, the 8084's CPU fan went bad, (It sounded like a meat grinder in action.), I called Medion and was told I could send it in for repairs. (I refused to send a new computer in for repairs).
I returned it to Aldi's and recieved another unit. One day later it would not boot… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/09/2004 by Paul garland16 (1 review written)

Overall the Medion P4 system is pretty good, very quick. Bought from Aldi 14 months ago. A very quick and versatile computer. One major problem being the Re-writing facilities, they all of a sudden stopped recording and there is no help available from the support line. No answer to E-mail's and no answer by telephone. To summarize it is good system until you encounter a problem… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2004

I recently bought the later model MD8383 from Aldi and had a problem out of the box. I contacted Medion with no problems and after carrying out some diagnostic tests, was advised to take it back to Aldi for a replacement. This I did with no problems and the new machine is working perfectly. On the basis of this experience I would recommend both Medion and Aldi for their customer service.

Written on: 31/08/2004 by gasthorpe (1 review written)

Bought from Aldi during November 2003 so I have had about 10 months use of my Medion Titanium MD8080XL. It cost £850 without a monitor. I have derived nothing but pleasure from using this machine and exploring it's many features - to date I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Medion to those on a limited budget who seek to get the very best value for their money. At the time of purchase I also bought a Medion surround sound set of speakers (about £30 from Aldi) which included an… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2008

As at 19 May 2008 I'm still using the same machine - still working well after new card reader installed - it's on it's third graphics card - the previous two Medion fitted cards became faulty.
<br/>My opinion of this machine has now lowered somewhat - it isn't a bad machine but the aftersales is poor in my opinion with no one willing to take on any problems - you've got a problem? - so? - you get the idea.
<br/>The engineer sent to this computer appeared as though his whose knowledge was very basic as far as I am concerned - he spent a great deal of time trying to straighten the pins of a CompactFlash card reader - almost impossible! - anything but replace the reader itself!
<br/>Needless to say, the reader failed yet again and produced upteen error messages.
<br/>The machine had to be returned to Medion - or rather their repairers - loads of false promises, missed deadlines, parts unavailable (had to send to Germany) etc, etc - eventually, after a number of weeks, my machine was returned - found a couple of screws rattling around inside the casing, cardreader loose, two LEDs missing from cardreader.
<br/>Do not recommend
<br/>Neither Medion nor Aldi were interested in my complaint in my opinion - well, it's working now isn't it? thats all I got as far as I am concerned.
