500 Gig isn't enough? Should be for most users.

Looks like a good machine with a sweet monitor. Definitely worth a stab at this price :)

Pity it's not an Intel processor though... What's the speed?

A...computer.....deal.....on......HUKD........., with......heat..........., that's......not.......a........Dell.

More heat added. :thumbsup:

Processor is a 2.5Ghz Quad, not quite as good as an Intel Quad, but in a good value system here. Easy enough to add a good GPU if you are looking to play games. Reasonable range at OK prices when ordering:

512MB ATI Radeon HD4350 (Direct X10.1, PCI Express 2.0) - PC Pro Best Value[upg £ 30.00]
512MB ATI Radeon HD4550 (Direct X10.1, PCI Express 2.0)[upg £ 40.00]
512MB ATi HD4670 Graphics accelerator - DVI, DirectX 10.1 PCI Express 2[upg £ 64.00]
1GB ATI HD4670 Graphics accelerator - DVI, DirectX 10.1 PCI Express 2[upg £ 74.00]
1GB NVIDIA GeForce with CUDA 9600GT Graphics Plus - PhysX enabled, Dual DVI, HDTV, TV Out[upg £ 114.00]
512MB ATi HD4850 Graphics accelerator - DVI, DirectX 10.1 PCI Express 2[upg £ 128.00]
512MB ATi HD4870 Graphics accelerator DVI, DirectX 10.1 PCI Express 2[upg £ 157.00]

The 512MB Radeon 4670 will be good enough to run any modern game at medium settings on that monitor, most will run at high settings. DragonChris is right that most users will be fine with a 500GB drive. I struggle to make a dent in a 250GB drive with games, programs, photos, documents, etc. Only reason you would want more is to store large collections of movies or very large collections of music, then you need 2TB or more and probably want to have it in a Network Attached Storage device so other computers, consoles, etc can all access it too.

Yea I did see it was on Mesh but read that lots of people have had problems with customer support, im assuming this can be bypassed by buying through Comet (e.g return to store)
#11
Mesh customer services are appalling. Our office bought a batch of Mesh PCs and they all broke down and mesh were largely unable to help. It might be a good machine, but given my personal experience with them I would not do business with them.

But then again, people say the same about Dell, which we've always had great service, if less than stellar products sometimes. So, perhaps this post is entirely worthless !

I take your point, I have heard about poor customer service from Mesh, however if purchased from Comet, could the product be returned to them instead of to Mesh?? Would this bypass the problems?? Anyone have any idea?
#13
Sounds like a good machine shame can't buy it without paying microsoft tax.
#14
for the price, it looks good to me!
#15
Shame about it being Comet. Too much hassle. I honestly think that if Comet were giving away money I wouldn't drop by and pick some up.
#16
as its selling for its rrp is this really a hot deal?
#17
beware vista 64 as I had nothing but problems with my existing software experiencing compatibility problems with it....yes some have patches and all sorts of weird and wonderful workarounds but trust me when I tell you....no substitute for trusty old XP in my opinion....getting vista 64 to work the way I wanted it felt like weeing in the wind...

some people might like weeing in the wind but I for one do not....:thumbsup:
#18
Had poor experience with MESH too. PC died after a year and a day almost, has lots of great reviews but was noisy and customer service was poor when it died...hard drive went by the way, huge cooling fan for processor hummed like a 747...avoid if my experience is anyrthing to go by.....

When did you try it? I've had no problems with it, the only software I've found that doesn't work with it is some 16-bit software for my university course (yep, genuine 16-bit software from 1995!). Everything else has worked flawlessly. And this was on a computer I built myself so the parts weren't picked especially for 64-bit compatibility.
#22
So this comes with a 300watt power supply as standard, last time I used one of those it was on a pentium 3 !
You would seriously need to upgrade the case if you ever wanted to add to it ;)
Other than that, nice bit of kit.
#23
You get what you pay for and if you are used to paying a grand for a system you'll be disappointed with anything less.
#24
Great price, not a great company in terms of customer support though.
Graphics card could be upgraded however that is a very nice screen!
#25
I've bought two PC's from MESH, first one was great with awful customer service.

Second one has been okay but customer service truly shocking - never ever again.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!
