PC Advisor Awards 2012

Likes # 0

Hello all. As you may have noticed we've announced the nominations for the 2012 PC Advisor Awards. And, as in previous years, we'd like to know what you think, via the Reader Awards. To make up for the two or three minutes it will take you to let us know your Best PC and laptop brands, your favourite online retailers and your gadget of the year, by entering your votes at the PC Advisor Awards pages (http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/awards) you'll automatically be entered into a prize draw, from which you can win £250 worth of Amazon vouchers.

Even if you don't want to vote (and why wouldn't you?), I'd love you for to let us know what you think about our editorial awards, the individcual nominees and categories, and the whole awards program, in this thread. Let us know what we've missed or products you particularly liked. Don't be shy!

Our roll-call of honour: the best of the past year’s technology, and our guide to the brands you can trust and the sites from which to buy.

I could not tell a good computer from a bad one so no problem there.

Where the problem starts is some of the customer reviews for some of those company's are fairly poor.

The computers may be first class but in all honesty I could not recommend some of the company's to potential buyer's.

I hope you don't think I am being a bit negative but you did ask.

I know naff all about laptops, and I assembled my desktop PC. Do I have to vote in every category to be eligible for the prize? If so, some of my selections will be at random.

No problem buteman. It's a problem we've never been able to solve. We do a lot of checking to make sure that we carry reviews only from legitimate, legal and above board companies, and we always follow up on complaints. But short of mystery shopping dozens of PCs from multiple vendors every month, we have no way of fairly judging customer service. I will say this, however. Building and selling PCs is a complex business, and there will always be occasions where things go wrong. You won't find a single PC maker that doesn't have user complaints against it. Trouble is, people are very rarely moved to comment when things go right.

Armchair No, just vote for the ones you feel comfortable passing opinion on. One of the reasons I love PC Advisor readers, and particularly forum users, is that things like this matter.

daz60 The Asus Transformer Prime does indeed look good, and it's an exciting development in form factor, although it concerns me that people are comparing it to the iPad. It is a compromise device. Has to be.

The only name over the entire lists that I've used this year is Amazon for a Pillars of the Earth DVD.

My personal austerity drive is driving much deeper than I thought!

I just voted for what I find reliable, that seems worth a vote but there are obviously brands that I have little experience of.

My problem in the survey, is that I thought we were being asked to vote in each category, or as many as we wished? So I placed a vote in retailer and received a pc advisor notice, Thanks for your vote etc. Then I voted in Best Laptop and I received a notice from pcadvisor to say 'Thank you, Your Vote has been Changed' I have obviously misunderstood something. Or maybe it is my internet signal not strong enough to sort it! Not to worry, just thought I would mention it.

Unfortunately I have not bought anything technology related this year (apart from a telly), so really I'm ineligible to enter. Don't do much online shopping either due to being out at work when deliveries generally arrive. Bummer.

I will enter though, just on the off chance I might win some Amazonian vouchers.
