Against all advice I decided to purchase an Aries PC click here

I would just like to report that it was delivered last night and I've set it up this morning. It is running like a dream.

In between placing my order and receiving this blindingly fast PC I was kept fully informed of progress by e-mail as well as being able to check the status of my order on the Savastore site.

If there could be any criticism, it would be the time taken between ordering (24/12/05) and receipt (27/01/06) but as I was not in a desperate rush I'm not complaining.

Now to install shedloads of software....

Congratulations!.

Hopefully, there will not be any serious problems in the future, because that seems to be the stage when difficulties arise.

you'll be just a bluuurrrrr as you move through the forums.

I'm pleased it's gone well so far, thanks for the update.

I'm pleased that yours is running well and you are happy with it. They are great VFM pc's

Mine came back from being repaired yesterday and I must admit that although they advised that they could find nothing wrong with it, apart from the sound channels being reversed (which have now been fixed) it hasn't crashed since I got it back.

I did notice one issue that may have been the problem but only time will tell. My CDRW was set as master on the "middle" IDE cable and my DVDRW drive as slave on the "End" of the IDE cable. I've swapped these over this morning and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Have fun with the new toy.

Any chance of seeing a link about the machine?

Try again.

Nothing wrong with the Aries so good luck.

Bought a Zoostorm myself.Never heard of them till someone mentioned Zoostorm on one of these forums.

Had to reformat using the xp home oem version.

Big mistake on my part for when I finally clicked on "send error report" to windows(after getting the report of windows has recovered froma serious fault ..etc) they immediately sent me a notice that Mcafee firewall needed a patch.

Downloaded the patch and m/c running sweet as a nut.
