Who to buy from ?

  Alan T 23:44 12 Nov 2007

Hi. Have been looking at buying PC from one of the following firms.
PC Specialist,
Dino PC,
Cougar Extreme and
PC Option Ltd.
Prices close, so build quality, component quality, which I find difficult to judge, and service will come into play. Your experience of any of these firms, the standard of the PC and their level of service, would be very helpful. Thanks

Cougar in particular seem to be getting a good reputation at the moment and one with looking at are Novatech as their customer service is second to none.
I haven't bought from Cougar but I would consider them, Novatech I've bought many parts off and a few PCs and all have been excellent, theres been a problem with a couple of parts but Novatech sorted it all out really quick.
As you can see I like Novatech and almost always buy from them if they have what I want simply because if there is a problem they will do their best to sort it out.

i've recently purchased from pcoption as have a few others..see seperate thread "Opinions on pcoption"

The main reason i chose them over Cougar is the choice of cases (i wanted Antec p182) as i felt there's was a bit limited. that said they have had some very good feedback as have Novatech.

Not sure you can too wrong with any of these currently, might be worth watching the pcoption thread to see if my experiance and of the others meets expectations..

cheers, happy hunting
