My venerable Medion desktop has eventually given up after many years of faithful service. Has anyone had recent experience of their service as I may buy another from them?

So what has gone wrong with it

It's about 11 years old and has blue screened with prob. disk failure. Won't start even in safe mode. Then start up beeps state video problem, may be motherboard..............it's just well past it and not worth the hassle. The hard drive is now in the bin after a good seeing to with a hammer etc. Time for a new one.

The blue screen error was "unmountablebootvolume. After checking the connections the video problem beeps sounded on start up so looks k**d. The Medion I was considering was this Medion 5203

It seems to have a decent spec for the money.

Pretty final then.

All the best with a new machine whatever you decide on.

Perhaps a word of caution?.

I purchased a Medion monitor product with a three year warranty, and Medion accepted the registration only to void the warranty later, due to the product being a display model in a Staples store. So if you are making a 'new' purchase, it might pay to consider this possibility, either with Medion or other products on offer?.

Other than that, the product as been 1st class, as all the other Medion products I have had over the years.
