Effecient PC

Until recently I hadn't bought a desktop PC for over five years and in that time I'd only bought one laptop (IBM T60 that I'm still very fond of). When I got the money out of my limited company I decided to get a few things, one of which was a new PC. I wanted something with lots of RAM a fast processor and Windows Vista.

Efficient PC was suggested to me and they seemed to have what I was looking for so I ordered an Ori with:
  • Phenom Quad Core 9950
  • 4GB of RAM
  • Nvidia Geforce 8600GT 512MB
  • Netgear 108Mbps Wireless
  • Ubunto
  • Windows Vista
What I received was a beautiful black tower and a seriously quick machine even following Windows Vista patching. The setup of the network card was a little problematic, but straight forward once I got the hang of the right configuration utility.

The first machine I received did have one major problem. It reset (not rebooted!) itself randomly, even when in use. After getting in contact with Efficient PC they took the machine back and traced the fault to the hard disk. Unfortunately it came back to me with the same problem, so I had to send it back again.

After about a week and a lot of hard work on the part of Efficient PC I was sent a replacement machine and I haven't had a problem since. It looks like the first PC was just one of those rare machines where there is an untraceable fault.

The two most important points for me are that I now have a very quick machine and the customer service I got from Efficient PC was superb. I would certainly use them again and would encourage other too as well.
