Can I trust Desktop Option?

  dwi3l-a 13:43 07 Nov 2006

I am looking for a cheap base unit and after looking at a number of sites I have found Desktop option to be the cheapest. However I am unable to find any reviews about the company. They are a subsidury of Pc option and I have been informed by the company they have been reviewed in this forum... somewhere... (I cant find it). Has anyone used either company.. Could you confirm your experience. Perhapse if anyone knows how they would compare to big companies like Dell and Mesh?

Try click here they make 1st class base units. They are that good you do not need to read reviews on them, i have been a happy customer since 2000 with no problems ever!

I know nothing of them. That doesn't mean that they are not reliable or anything.

No. Its a company called Pc Options. click here and click here. Prices are good, so want ot make sure they won't take the money and run. Contacted the company and they said they had had reviews on this site in the forums section.

I would suggest that you study their terms and conditions, pay particular attention to their 'money back' guarantee.

Cheers Spark6. Anyone suggest any local companies i could look at? i'm in Belfast. Failing that anyone have a good experience with anyone?

"won't take the money and run". Not if you pay by credit card, they won't.

I'm also from Northern Ireland. Did you manage to find anything, with regards to purchasing a new machine?

I was told about Mplex but they did not do the specs I was interested in.
