carrera computers-are they any good????!!!!!????

  lucozade9 21:33 14 Oct 2004

i am interested in a carrera pc however i havent heard of them before even though they are on the best buy list. so i was just wondering if they are any good?

also does a return to base warranty mean they cover parts and labour when you send it back to them?

thanks in advance for your help

I bought one nearly years ago and it was a lot of trouble for months not a lot of co-operation from the phone lines. Touch wood it seems to be reasonable at the moment but would not buy another one my opinion search the forum for comments. Best of luck!

I think Carrera was going to have a presence here within the forum. They posted once I believe, something to do with a rush of orders and delays.

i have a carrera octan pro. i have found it to be very good, looks stylish. Has been very good for photoshop work and can handle current games etc...i would reccomend it for the sorts of things i use it for. and value wise etc. only downside is the sound i gues snot so good although acceptable!

Name any brand and the answer is the same provided they have been in business long enough to have a name.

Equally, any brand produces the occasional bad one, and so we are back to hear-say. That resolves to two important matters.

1) Which brand comes closest to a final price v. the specification that YOU want.

2) Which firm is known to give the best for prompt and sympathetic support service, when things don't go as you expected.

I have a p3 carrera bought in 1999, my friend used to work there until it went bust, not he works for mesh. I don't know if this is of any use to you but i was surprised they're back, i think it really depends on if they're the same people because my computer has had no problems (apart from me messing around a bit!)
