“average quality computer but not worth the money i paid”

Written on: 27/08/2014 by axis1025 (1 review written)

I bought a gaming pc with moderate overclocking and some other
high-spec parts such as water cooling, better power supply unit, more
RAM etc.
The system was unstable when running large sized files, crashing a
few times a day. I suspect overclocking can be one of the reasons but
not sure.
There is no usable USB port in front of the machine which is very
inconvenient and they explained they had to disable the one in front for
some reason which I can't remember now as it was technical terms. They
further advised me that they can provide advice if I wish to do it
myself ( to enable the front USB, which seemed to require some technical
knowledge and experience i.e. drilling through some of the internal PC
elements and I definitely did not want to do this myself as I know very
little about PC hardware. I still have to use rear USB port which is
very inconvenient every time I need to connect usb momory.
It took 12 working days from order to the receipt of the computer
which I think could have been quicker, based on my previous purchase
experience from other retailers.
Their progress update email regarding the progress of ordering
parts, assembling etc. all went to into my Hotmail junk folder, which
made me to log in to their web and check my account to see the progress
and made lots of calls on a daily basis. The motherboard was replaced
with a different one without giving me a check or explanation, although
they explained it was better spec than I originally ordered.

Overall, I don't think it was a good experience for purchasing very
high-spec computer from this retailer and would not use them for future
purchase.
