Or go to Dell and get a free 19" monitor!!

Hi, Used to think that Medion products from Aldi were a reasonable buy however I'm afraid that I've got to agree with johncas on this one. Medion/Aldi have priced themselves out of the market compared to companies such as Dell who are offering much better deals. Why Aldi are charging so much I'm not sure. The warranties are good on these products but you still have to pay by cash or debit card. Medion can be a complete and utter nightmare to deal with on warranty issues although their base units in fairness to them are well made IMHO. Not voting cold though as otherwise a good post.

Agree - not good price compared to buying on-line however better than most shops where you can walk in and buy one.

Also note that in Scotland you can use your credit cards in Aldi stores. We must be more trust worthy up here ;-)

They probably decided it was easier to get a piece of plastic off a Scotsman than cash. :giggle:

i had a medion pc bought about 7 years ago and it was the best pc i ever had well built with very good parts and i would have had another one but they just did not have one at the time one of my family bought the old one and its still going strong

would recommend to anyone
#6
Agree with Steve, i used to repair PC's for a living and worked under two different companies, Dello are as bad if worse than anyone for repairs. They charge extortionate prices and make it as hard as possible to repair their machines, ive seen Dell computers with the drives locked in with Yale padlocks!:?

My Medion was great, cant ever fault anything ive had from them, we currently have a Medion laptop and its superb. This looks like a good deal, heated and repped.:thumbsup:
#7
I got a full refund (£900) after owning a 8386xl for nearyly 3 years as they couldnt get engineer roung dor over two months. Never again would i touch medion

Cheap PSU's. Faulty Motherboards. Poor service.

Voted cold.

I've had a Medion since December 2005. It had its first problem in November 2006. And since then its had problem after problem. Been over 8 months now and its still not sorted. Had the wireless card break on both of them(i have 2), the card reader broke on mine, the TV card broke, the graphics card has broken twice, meaning its unusable. I got it back from being repaired and the front of the case was broken and the side panel is dented. Had the front replaced and then the bottom DVD drive stopped working.
So i'd say don't get one.


Well, I have had 2 Medions. First is now 3 +years old ,still going strong with
grandchildren. This one I have had for 2 years. A couple of minor probs.but,
after some chasing, they did come and fix . Makes me wonder if I have just been lucky and is it worth changing .

I cant beleive its soo cold in here. Medion are awesome machines. What dell can you get for under £399 which is not ****?

I just tried to spec up a dell which is comparable to this, and it came out with 700... with a 19 inch monitor. Any links to these great Hell... i mean Dell machines?

Hey dont use those sort of jokes, I find them offensive.
#12
Notice how quiet this thread has gone now
#13
I am on my second Medion, the first is now over 6 years old, still going strong, my current one is almost 2 years old, never any problem with either.:)

It doesn't really matter what anyone thinks about this deal, because it will most likely sell out within the first day, as most do.

I vote it HOT, because I cannot find anything like it for the money, especially with 3 years onsite warranty.

I would have thought that was a very good reason for buying another one, where else would you have received a full refund like that?;-)

The days when Aldi PC's sold out first day are long gone years ago.

You will find these in my local store months after the offer, as they are poor value compared to Dell.

That may be true for the higher specification, costlier models, but within this price range, I can almost guarantee that there will be none left within days, the last one was sold out by midday across the country.

Time will tell.;-)

You may think so, I would have been elated to have got a full refund after that amount of time.

It's a shame that the price of pc's are moving so quickly at the moment medion pc's used to be good value but not this time.
#20
if someone offered me a full refund after 3 years ide **** my pants,as the thing would be worth a 10th of the price by then.

i think the money is spot on,saying go to dell is a cop out,what you get similar processor plus a 19" monitor?.that hardly qualifies.

get a dell with same processor hard drive ram and o/s.then add a twin tuner a dedcated graphic card and 3 years onsite warrasnty where you dont have to pay shipping.i doubt it would come out cheaper,probably 150 more.

infact just price up a twin dvb tuner alone,thats over £100 pound from dell alone so knock that of the £399.
#21
people as always go oooh its got a core 2 duo and vista and know nothing about the components think having a cheap rubbish 80 quid monitor makes it a bargain
#22
I've just managed to get a Dell equivalent price for £482 with a 19" monitor, though it was quite hard to get such a rubbish processor

With a 3 year warranty ??

I've got a Medion 8800.
It looks nothing like the usual ones Aldi sell its got a black glossy finish and has had no problems since I bought it 1.5 years ago. It cost £750 and when I checked it part for part at the local pc wholesaler it was a lot cheaper:-D

Link please! I cant see anthing like this on the Dell site. There are so many Dell fan boys here!

Does anyone know whether the M/board can take any more RAM?

What about using a HDMI - DVI cable as there is no dedicated DVI out on the graphics card, is this ok quality of picture-wise?

The specs. state that it has an HDMI connection . I can't see why you wouldn't be able to use a converter to DVI if you feel the need.
It already has 2Gb ram. :? Not sure if there are any more free slots.
