Which PC supplier doesn't have serious negatives against them?

I was just about to commit to purchasing a £550 desktop PC and just in case did an additional search for feedback on my selected supplier.
Result: a series of, pretty serious negatives, and similarly another series of glowing recommendations but little inbetween. These are the reviews I look to as they often tell you a hell of a lot more and particularly how the company handles faults/complaints.
I won't order from places on eBay/Amazon etc if I don't like the feedback attitude of the seller in dealing with problems even when the buyer is clearly an idiot. I look for a professional, quick, mature, reasoned and fair response under all circumstances.
Problem is that this suspicious lack of middle ground feedback reviews seems to be true of all the other PC builder/suppliers I have been looking at too. Buyers have had either apparently appalling service or been ecstatically happy.
So who can really be trusted to provide a professional service and, of course, do a good job out of the builders/suppliers whose machines are regularly reviewed in magazines like PC Advisor? I really need to know who to choose out of the usual suspect ie. Palicomp, Eclipse, PC Specialist, Chillblast, Dino,(new)Mesh etc or if there are any other alternative recommendations.

Everyone's experiences are different. I had a faultless Mesh for years, before that I had a superb Dan ( long liquidated ! ), I have had good Evesham pcs and have had my present Cougar built system for 4 faultless years. Yet if you look at reviews over the past, you will find unhappy clients of all these firms ! My Samsung laptops have also been excellent.

Does the amount of advertising space a company buys in a magazine influence the magazine's reviews of that company's products.
