Long story short – So happy with the end result!
Longer story from start to finish Inc delivery times and a few issues that were solved:
Waited 5 working days from placing the order and then got a bit of a shock when it said the pc had just gone into production stage and would be up to another 8 days, but then it sped through that section and the next few in the space of a few hours, stopping only at the testing stage (Which is fine as I know it takes a while). I got an email each time it entered the next stage and was kept well informed.
Within the next 24 hours after that, it had been tested, quality checked and sent out, arriving the next day - So that’s 8 working days turn around, for a custom build?? Very happy!
Turned up very well packaged, the pc itself with protective foam buffers on the outside, as well as foam on the inside of the unit to protect internal parts, not a scratch on it. Also noted that the cable management was excellent on the inside as well while taking this foam out.
There were one or two initial issues (one wasn’t even PCS's fault), and that was the office package didn’t recognise as being activated. This was a Microsoft fault and I got an email back after querying this in less than 24hrs with detailed, well explained instructions on how to correct this. In the same initial email I noted I'd had problems getting the Wi-Fi to discover any connections, and it turned out PCS had forgotten to include the antenna. I honestly thought they would turn around and say that I'd misplaced them but they admitted fault straight away in the follow up email and sent out the missing items which arrived the next day - Both issues resolved easy and as quick as that.
This is by far the best machine I've had ever had, I honestly thought the first time I turned it back on I hadn’t shut it down and instead and put into sleep mode or something - it booted up THAT quick. I got the entry level case as I’m not that fussed in that regards tbh, and even that along with all the other parts perform, look and feel quality. Service was awesome, especially when I had the previously mentioned teething issues.
