Pc components are all made by a very small number of companies and it would be a suprise if there was a significant difference in reliability between brands at this price point.
Looks exspensive for what you get, you shouldn't fall into the trap of thinking something is cheap just because it is sold by Aldi.

Hi,if you look at all the package,it will be a good deal.If you just nit pick bits and bobs its a different proposition.
In the swings & roundabouts etc etc,Aldi/Medion are pretty good.certainly a lot better,than a lot you see getting recommended.

Cheers BOB


ps Certainly better than using a blanket for a Projector screen,or am i wrong ? :) ,so funny.

I want a remote like this for a pc, also Ilike the video in at the front.

Aldi is the only place I saw a pc once with scart socket at the back.

should I return the pc I got from tesco for 284, with 15.00 voucher code ?

I will be paying 186.00 more for this pc, so I will get

remote,
1gb more memory,
firewire,
memory card reader,
tv card,
video input option,
graphics card,
180GB more harddisk (500gb)
High Speed Wireless LAN 802

So cant make choice

I disagree with that. Whilst ALDI do sell cheap stuff, don't assume that people that post on this forum all have no technical expertise.

A Windows Vista Home Premium licence will eat into around £60.
A three year warranty RTB extended from a standard 1 year for this price range will eat into another £40+ (more if all 3 years are onsite, but that isn't the case here).

Therefore, to build your PC hardware, you have £100 less to play with. This spec PC built for around the £350 mark is 'difficult' and then you'd have to severely go for the cheapest mobo.

I'd like to see how you'd construct your PC otherwise or get a similar specification from elsewhere for the same price.

I bought one of these (well the next model up, 8899 I think) about 4 months ago from Aldi and have been really pleased with it.

Lightening fast for things like video encoding and plays the few games that I want (Tiger Woods golf etc).

The only complaint is that the HDD is a bit noisy but it quietens down after bootup.

Cheaper deals in the dell outlet at the moment, Medion support is very poor from past experience unless its improved recently.

[SIZE=3]Cheap Aldi & Lidl PC deals seem to have completely gone now, this is definitely not in the same league as some in the past :-(

I think Aldi in particular are trying too hard to be more up-market, what was wrong when they were basic but cheap![/SIZE]

Have to agree, they arnt very good deals anymore, but for someone who hasnt got a PC its a good deal compared to PCW and the like

Excellent! Show me one with an Intel Quad 6600, above GeForce 9500, 500Gb hard disk, 3 yr warranty, and the rest.

Just going into the Quads takes the price over the £400 mark. List the ones you think offer better value. :whistling:

I bought that too, and can't see what your problem is... with 186 quid to spend, I could add all out of that list I would want with a lot of change!
I have already spent under 30 quid on 2Gb more RAM, and already had USB TV (but you can get PCI or USB options at good prices), it has own remote, but a remote Keyboard/mouse is only about 15 quid. I use mine for streaming to an Hauppauge MVP using GBPVR, and it works a treat. A capture arrangement can be taken care of within a TV card, but if not, Dealextreme do a one - I have tried out a friend's and which only costs about 11 quid!

Extra HD space? Well get it as you need it! The price of HDs is falling ALL the time, and when you need the space, they are going to be pretty good value! Internal or External drives, even multimedia ones or Networked ones are all to consider, giving differing flexible options. (I had a 500Mb USB 2 drive I was using with my laptop, but I probably would get round to an internal one if I was buying a new drive, and there have been some good deals lately on here)

The only quandry seems to be what Graphics card you would need to buy, (I haven't bothered yet, as my extra memory seems to have helped out the onboard system, but I might get one later on) and that "all depends" on what your needs are, I suppose. I don't game, so ask those who do, but even so, a card to fit well within that budget should be no problem. A DVI output can be linked via adapter to HDMI, so no need for scart - and if you don't have HDMI, then I don't know what you need to worry about, composite is probably all it would output anyway.

If the Aldi deal is PERFECT for you, then that is the option, but I can't imagine every single option it has will necessarily be what's needed.

I agree - that's a good deal! :thumbsup:

Problem is that you found a good deal, searching through outlet PCs which are a mix of all different configurations and most are not as good value as the one you have.

Many people spend their time scanning the Dell Outlet site - some used to make a living out of buying the better value ones and selling them on.

I don't think its that easy getting the deal you got.

I sort of agree. They're certainly not as good as they used to be. But to be fair, the older deals were better focused.

Either they were extremely cheap with less frills which pleased many people, including PC builders as every component was seen as essential (e.g. not TV Tuners, web cams, etc).

Alternatively, they were aimed at the £700-800 mark which had a lot of stuff bundled in and they were always all round good general PCs with a lot of value.

However, the current offerings have changed and won't please either of the above crowds.

To be fair, one of ALDI's last PCs put me off. They added a BluRay or HD-DVD - can't remember which one. Possibly they did both. But to be fair, these components were expensive at the time and added a lot of cost to the PC unnecessarily.

They are still good value PCs and I if I have any friends looking for a PC, whilst the ALDI offers are on, they would be pretty much top of the list especially if someone doesn't want to order online.

However, its definately not quite as good value as their previous offerings.

It's not the spec that is bad, but buying anything like this from Aldi is a no no as their warranty is not worth the paper it is written on.

Anyone buy this pc.

I'm looking to buy one of these and swap the graphics card for a radion 4870.

Any help would be great.
