I have a 5 year old Evesham and have just bought a Medion from PCW. I have not heard many bad reports about Evesham and most of the reports are positive and complimentary. There is only a small chance that you will ever need serious technical support and for most glitches this forum is way better for help. Like everyhting else in life you will mainly hear about consumer's woes and rarely hear anyhting if an item is OK.
Having said that I feel that the Medion range pans anything of similar ilk (price and spec) from Evesham. ;-)))
