Well obviously the choice is yours, but the reason I asked why is that this is not the first time Carrera have gone bust leaving a trail of useless warranties and badly or incomplete machines.

Watford Electronics were reported to be interested in taking on the Carrera brand name but I think they have dropped the idea as the news has dissapeared from their website.

Maybe some other forum members can update you on the current situation but I wish you luck with your Pc purchase.

Even if someone does take them over it will be a whole new ball game

Don't rely on previous advertising

They're now run by Watford electronics.

I know this, as I purchased a Carrera PC in December, just before christmas, and found out about 2 weeks later that they'd gone into administration. I've recently received a letter from Watford asking me whether I wish to take up their 'highly subsidised' warranty options.

I've personally heard lots of good stuff about Watford, and have received many successful completed orders from Savastore.

Up to you though.

Well I can certainly recommend them, in my dealings with them the service has been excellent.
