Need to change my pc for a newer version. Have read info on various makes and now torn between Evesham and Systemax. Would appreciate any tips or advice on these manufacturers please. Including their aftersales service.
I bought a 2.8ghz P4 from evesham just before christmas, and last week I noticed the unit fan was making a strange noise. It turn out that one of the fins had fractured. To cut a long story short, rang Evesham to book an engineer to come out to replace the item. 3 days later all was well agian. There aftersales service is pretty good and the engineer arrived on time !!! The only problem i did incounter was waiting on the phone for about 6 mins to get through to an advisor.
Why not have a look into having one built for you? With "off the peg" models you tend to pay for a lot of stuff you'll never really use. Best bet would be to decide what you wanna do with the PC then get some recommendations to components. You could then take the spec to a PC shop (or do it online) and get some quotes for just what you want.
If you had a good knowledge of PCs you wouldn't be asking this question, so go for a PC from a well respected supplier like Evesham. Mine started giving problems after about nine months. I took in the sytem unit, they sent it away, and replaced the motherboard.
Return to Base service is a bit of hassle, but cheaper than on-site. The questions you should be asking are, what do I wish to do with this PC?
Forum members can give you a good idea of the specs you should be looking for, then you won't be wasting any money on stuff you don't need.
Are you keeping your existing printer, scanner, etc., or passing them on with your old PC?
