Typo

Could do with a 'New' PC, maybe this is the way to go.

Never brought from ALDI before.

Any pointers?

You can say this about everthing some people are unlucky ive had medion pc 7 years never any problems so just depends on ur luck like everthign in life :thumbsup:
#8
Good offer I bought a Medion from Aldi about 6 years ago and its still going strong with absolutely no problems, I replaced it with the Dell XPS420 last January and its had nothing but problems
#9
i would totally reccommend this. my medion computer has been amazing in fairness and i would def buy another one.
#10
PC Pro Award 2008 put this company as 2nd in the UK for reliability...

Highly Commended: Medion, PC Specialist

[COLOR="Blue"]Medion follows up last year’s top position with another award, gaining particular praise from its customers for value for money – yet still backing that up with fine reliability scores. UK firm PC Specialist joins it on the rostrum, with customer support being its most impressive feature; no wonder 89% of its customers would buy PC Specialist again.[/COLOR]

Also I doubt you could get this spec for anything less than £600 elsewhere with the relevant warranty.
#11
Im thinking about one of these, just hoping its going to be really good.. the spec seems canny, if you have an HD monitor and surround sound etc. it should be great! However i don't haha. Any other recommendations out there or should i go and get one next week hmmmm :w00t:

Medion or Acer?

The Acer at Comet appears to have a slightly better processor.
Guess I need to check the small print to see if there are any other significant differences.

#13
can anybody give me the dimensions of this PC? ....i've had a look around the interweb for them but cant seem to find the height, lenght ..etc! ...
#14
I see what your saying about the Acer, slightly better processor but the graphics are better and i think the warranty is probably going to be better with the Medion. Im not sure what to do....buy the Medion or look for something similar ie like the acer, however i'd have the Medion because of graphics and slightly cheaper and the warranty.
#15
This gets bad reviews when googled, says its too power hungry for Home/ Office and not powerful enough for games!?!?!? It LOOKS like a good deal to me, my ageing Athlon 2900 on a Gigabyte board has given up the ghost after 6yrs of hard use. This MUST be better than that and I've never really had a problem other than video editing?!?! (only do internet, photoshop, and other graphics apps so dont need a gaming monster).

Can an expert (i.e not some kid spouting how this wont play Crisis 12 or some other carp Im never going to play), comment on the actual value for money of this PC??? :thumbsup:
#16
its good value, cos even if u wanted to build a similar rig it would be about the same cost.:thumbsup:

Cheers racer, that was my thought too! ;-)
#18
I have found similar machines which may have a slightly better processor, however they do not come with 3 years cover and the graphics card is not as good. So im probably going to make the purchase when these come out on thursday, unless someone can suggest an alternative????

You do get a fair amount of software with the Medion, however i probably wouldn't use it...not really my cuppa tea MS works etc.
#19
I'm also struggling to decide.
For a start it's difficult to find some decent reviews to confirm if the processor on the Acer IS really superior. It used to be a bit easier when processors all had one core & the clock speed was written on the front of the case.
Then the ACERs have a little tamper proof sticker on the back of the case which states the warranty is invalid if its opened. So that makes any upgrades difficult. Not much use when I want to fit a TV tuner or other such accessories.
Do Medion have this kind of nonsense? A 3 year warranty would be irrelevant with one of those.

I only replace the PCs every 6 years, so having a PC with some scope for minor upgrades is good too (more memory etc).

Acer have ****** me off a little with unreliable WiFi on the Aspire One netbook, which might just swing it to the Medion.
#20
I purchased a Medion Akoya laptop back in June (320gb HD, 3gb ram Intel core duo) after my Acer decided to destroy itslef (i had it for 4 years and was a top buy) and i it is fantastic, fast as you like, i didnt buy it for games do i havent tried out the graphics card really, but i coudnt recommend it higher, although Sainsburys did reduce the price from £599 to £499 about 8 weeks after i bought it, but you pay the money you take the chance,

I have no gripes at all with it, and the omipass fingerprint scanner is a gimmick but amazes people when they try to access it,

Integrated graphics though?!?!? Surely the ATi is a better bet being separate?!?

nowhere near as good as the Aldi one

also the Aldi one is HDMI and has Opt out, put that with the decent sized HDD and get some 1080p encodings on it and you got an awesome media center.. add a blu ray drive and this should last you a good while.

There is a much better medion for the money,

Medion Akoyo P36888 (Tesco Exclusive)

Was £599.99 before Christmas reduced to £499.99 Now £399.99 on clearance

Intel Quad Core Processor, 1Tb Hard Drive, Dual Tuner TV Card, - Bluray & HDDVD Drive, Nvidia 9300GS Graphics, Remote control and loads more

Kicks spots off this one for £10 more if you can find one in Tesco

Discussed here -

On the Adli/Medion board.

good deal but if i were buying a new pc i would spend slightly more and get a quad-core processor and a monitor included :thumbsup:

Doesn't mention wireless connectivity, so it looks like no. :thinking:

FWIW I have 2 Medions. My first is 5+ years old now and still going strong. My second has been fine too. The 3 year warranty gives extra piece of mind and I have called them out for minor issues and had a keyboard and bezel replaced without any problems.

I had problems with medion laptop too, over heating graphics when playing games, warranty little use , their basic graphics diagnostic test could not reproduce the overheating. Unless you can get them to change their diagnostic methods not much i could do.
#33
Question i would like to know is would this play new games even on just a basic setting.
#34
I couldnt find that computer on Tescos site - is it still around? wanted to look to compare

Looking at the specs, price and the design I would stay away from this without going into specifics, I think fellow geeks will concur :thumbsup: It's to pricey for what it is....

Any other recommendations if not this one? need one soon as my one is dying.
#37
Yes it will but the resolution won't be to high I wouldn't have thought with the low end processor and video card, although both are more than adequate for most other tasks and im sure you can find something more powerful from Dell or someone else
#38
here is a link to the pc you mentioned
http://www.trustedreviews.com/pcs/review/2008/12/05/Medion-Akoya-P36888-Multimedia-Center-PC-with-Blu-ray/p4

doesn't seem to be available anywhere now

The basic spec is reasonable as you get an older quad core which is more than capable. I'll have to have a quick look around as i'm also looking for something for myself
suspended#39
Before anyone says it, its cheaper to build it :P.

Just a low down on how much this actually could cost guys...
CPU: AMD 7750- £65
Ram: 4gb- £35
Mobo: Doesnt say so lets say a cheap one, £40
PSU: Again no specs so it will be <500W but should be reliable so... £30 roughly for about 350watts(plenty)
Hard drive: No spec but about £55(prices gone up, got a decent western digital for £40 :P)
Case: Generic ~£25
Dvd drive: ~£10
GPU(graphics card): £35
Vista: £60- 32bit version OEM
Flash reader: £2

Total: £357

Cheaper but not much, you get lifetime warranty on most parts for a computer and so building gives you better peace of mind in most cases. If you dont know or dont want to know how to build a pc, this isnt bad AT ALL as its only about £30 more than building yourself so just labour costs.

This is not a gaming machine, dont try and play games on it as it will not do very well(maybe old games) the ati 4350 is a MEDIA card so hd films etc, it uses low amounts of power(very low) and the cpu isnt to power hungry either so its great to have.

Voted hot.

Make sure you're there early in the morning. Most the medion computers I've seen sell out in 5 minutes.
