Guys I'm not a computer expert, but this deal seemed interesting to me, let me know what you think? I read that Windows 7 and 8 (with certain conditions) should be able to get a free upgrade to win…

Pretty much different 'interpretations' of this one for everybody really? .. since the inception of Windows OSR1 wayyyyyyy back in 1995 its been 'Start Menu' THROUGHOUT!, & you mean to tell me that since all those Years from Windows OSR1 in 1995 going this individual has never used the Windows Start Menu for anything?, ever?, i'm finding that mighty hard to believe! (cos if even for the then new 'novelty factor' of it at the time MANY would have used it plenty at the time regardless, as 'pre-Windows 95 OSR1/NT' the Windows Shell of Windows 3.1 & Windows for Workgroups 3.11 was wayyyyyyyy different!, so ..... )
Thats all I can really say on the matter really?, lol. :-)

Blimey you still remember windows 3.1 and windows 3.11 for workgroups! Yes I remember upgrading from 3.11 to 95 and then OSR1. Wow, them were the days, lol

why it's Crap?
and power supply is Crap and only 400w so even if you want to upgrade this build you need to spend 70-80 pound for nice psu.

And a reliable one as well. It doesn't say what make the 400w PSU is , so it could be any generic make

win 8 flop? it's not so bad. people are just scared of new. all that crying about lack of start button. cmon who is using it? even now it easy enough to right click on start symbol and you have almost everything what you had in the old start menu. and dealing with computers for 17 years I have to say that this pc deal is Crap.
Just built a new pc for a friend who was on XP before. Was worried that they wouldn't get on with 8 (technophobe and hates new ways) so pointed out the difference and said I'd install classic shell if they really wanted (but only after trying the proper way). They had absolutely no problems and admitted they didn't use the start menu apart from to turn off (click start to finish - genius), which is pretty much the info MS had.

This is the worst company I've ever dealt with in my 59 years on earth. Their sales/after-sales/customer(lackof)service is utterly atrocious. I bought from them once and the experience converted me to self-building and OC'ing gaming rigs. Far less hassle and easier to rectify if anything goes awry with a piece of hardware. Unless under new and exceptionally good ownership/management please, please avoid this company at all cost. Sourcing your own components and assembling a PC is really simple...so simple, even a dedicated Mac user like me can do it with one hand tied behind my back. MESH were such a poor company the catalogue of after-sales disasters made me question the MO and integrity of PCPro.

Superb really glad for you, maybe the earlier comments about overheating gpu are relevant, that's why i turned the case fan to 1200 (not noisy either).

Bought the shuttle PC December 20th.. GPU died yesterday mouse/keyboard froze, hard reboot when it came back up.. no output to monitor (tested 2 others), hdmi,dvi makes no difference. Reseated the card, removed drivers etc no dice
Board explorer within the bios reports nothing connected to the PCI-E.
Contacting the seller to see what my options are as it is less than 4 weeks old.
Sorry to hear about that, hope your RMA goes well (MSI are pretty reputable in that regard). I was thinking of switching mine out for a 970; this reference 770 I've found is very loud on full load, and I've never had great confidence in these coolers.

That's sad, keep us informed. Was it after some intense use or it just went off? I upped the switch on the rear fan to 1200 just cos it was there and can't hurt cooling it more.Not much more noise than 600! My son has had a few crashes, all with sims 4 but I think those are game glitches not gpu related. I hope you get help from the seller.
How did you do that? Just in UEFI? And is that only when it goes above a certain temperature or all the time? I'm putting a lot of stock in my lounge being on the cold side most of the time - probably shouldn't!

There is a small physical black switch attached to the cables of the rear CASE fan I just set mine to the higher rpm because I thought more airflow is better than less airflow, no other reason! Thought I would highlight that the case fan has the switch not the gpu fan as it could be read either way!





found it, mine was hidden underneath the motherboard. thanks for pointing it out.

There are considerable attractions to building your own, starting with warranty and then performance. Ready made PCs are usually built with OEM versions of the boxed retailed products that we buy. The OEM versions usually only come with a one year limited warranty, whereas the boxed versions, depending on what you buy, have full retail box warranties that sometimes can be anything up to five years. When you build your own, you get to cherry pick the best componants. For instance, I appreciate the MSI Z97I motherboard went very hot when posted as a deal and it's a great looking motherboard with a several nice features but it lacks some of the key exciting features of the new Z97 that distinguishes it from the older Z87 boards. There is no SATA E, which breaks the old SATA bottleneck to offer 60% faster data transfer (as far as I know, we are waiting to see SATA E drives, though) and it lacks M.2 SSD, again for much better data transfer and a zipper user experience. To me, having one or preferably both are must haves. If you must make a Mini ITX rig, perhaps look at the ASROCK board, say. I haven't seen any reviews and it's not a great looker but at least it has both M.2 and SATA E. You might want to go with a larger format motherboard but still keep it relatively small. A M-ATX format board gives you greater connectivity and upper limit of 32GB of ram, as opposed to 16GB with M-ITX. You can use two graphics cards, if that appeals. Cherry picking your own graphics card for a smaller M-ITX box, you can check out temperatures and go for quiet and cool. I don't know who makes the card fitted, here, but quiet and cool matter to me. You might want to wait a few weeks for the new 4790K. It offers 10 - 12% better performance than the 4770K, apparently with 6% less heat under load. Better still, the 4790K at stock gives you slightly faster performance than a 4770K with a relatively conservative overclock on it, so you can save a bit of money on whatever third party cooler, or even stick with the stock Intel cooler for a bit. What of the SSD they have fitted, does it have one of the faster read speeds? And there we are getting back to M.2 SSD and future proofing in general. I think you can do better, have fun building and I'm not what warranty Mesh are offering (the url link is dead for me) but you could build with parts with extended warranties.
I wouldn't use cool and the r9 290 series in the same sentence. They give of a serious amount of heat. Enough to kick my case fans up a notch to deal with the ambient temperature. I could dry my hands with the exhaust from the card under load ;) case is cool though as I've got 4 120mm 3 140mm and 1 100mm fan cooling it

Reasons why this is bad:

1) Cheaper to build yourself + missing out on the joy of builidng it yourself.

2) Small case like this will heat up way faster than a bigger case with more room and air flow. Bigger case also mean more space for upgrades, expansions and more fans for cooling unless the smaller case has something to compensate for its size.

3) You have a i7-4770K CPU and 4GB AMD Radeon™ R9 290X which you could overclock but that means more heat. Small case results in bottleneck on these as they won't be able to run as cool compare to a bigger and cooler case

4) You can actually get longer warrenty for the components from the manufactuers than what they are providing.

5) Because 5 is a nice number, I just built my first PC and I could match this for £200 and it would roughly be round 1k for it
I have an itx pc like this, yes you can build it cheaper but keeping the system cool is not an issue.

I did say unless it has something to compensate for the size. Lets say it has no space for watercooling or one of those big CPU fans, you won't be able to cool it as well as you would if you did have those options! But yeas most of the cases now have space for that but still the other points do count and I'm sure they could find a better deal built for cheaper.

All the people moaning that you cannot build a high end pc in a mini itx case are talking rubbish. There is very little need these days for a full sized pc anymore when a system this small can for a high end gpu and overclocking processor with plenty of cooling.

As for this deal I don't think it's worth paying an extra £300 to have it built. A lot of places would build you the same system cheaper.
I agree 100%, a full size pc would look crap in my living room, and my itx plays games no problem on ultra.....so far

I would always build due to the ability to customise the PC, for example the power supply in these computers will be the bare minimum needed which is fine until you need or want to upgrade. If you are building you can spend an extra £10 on a more powerful PSU and save £70 in the long run

The HUKD system has pulled in the picture for the £799 item which is a little misleading for the offer (£299 is 1TB and 4gb memory and not the fancy case).
And make sure the components are compatible

Not really a good deal. The builds cost more than to buy each component and build it yourself.

Not much more though, and you need to take into account the time to build and get hold of the different components.

Maybe I've just got blue eyes, but I contacted Mesh a few weeks ago about a PC I bought 10 years back and they replied within 48 hours. Funny how you only ever hear about bad experiences. Be it mesh, scan (a prime example for some. Not me).

Ebuyer have dropped me in it more than I'd care to say but I know a lot still swear by them. Each to their own I suppose.

My advice - go to your local Aldi and see if they still have any P6512 laptops in stock. These were launched in August 2010 at £499 but got reduced to £349 about six weeks ago. For the money, there's nothing that comes close to matching this laptop. The spec is shown in the link below....

Oh and even if it says '512MB Intel GMA 4500 M Integrated Graphics' its integrated not dedicated, i.e. that 512mb is system Ram, not graphics ram.

Voted cold sorry. Simply because I've had terrible dealings with Mesh and would definately not recommend them for anything.

I had always thought Mesh made pretty good computers, however I may be wrong but this is apparently just a rebadged MSI x600 - not a Mesh at all. This PC Advisor review (on a slightly slower processor), rates it fairly well; the price in May was £400 and although the CPU was slow and battery life only 4hours the graphics performance made it stand-out from similar low power / profile machines.


Edited By: wombat6025 on Oct 26, 2010 18:46: correction
This almost certainly won't run hot because the CPU is very low power (about 5W TDP instead of about 35W in the mobile i3/i5 chips). The GPU is no more than about 10W TDP under full load. So this should be pretty cool.

The low power consumption should lead to good battery life, but they may have skimped on battery size.

The CPU isn't very good in terms of speed though.

Two year collect and return warranty is a plus point.
I always worry with a cheaper laptop that it will run hot, so the fan is then always running. Bought a similar price HP and it runs so hot and with the fan on it makes alot of noise in the room.

I have never used a Mesh branded computer so can't comment on this one.

You could get something very powerful for that much money.


I'm not saying this is a good deal, but not everyone is happy buying a second hand dell.
agree with above, mesh?. Im not sure you could get alot more spec for the price, other than the processor what could you improve? and just because its the newest intel processor with a fancy name doesn't mean its lightyears ahead...

It is an average price for this laptop though

You are paying for the brand

For that price you can get an i5 on dell outlet


I've never heard of Mesh until a couple of days ago, i didn't realise it was a brand LOL

Had to resort to a refund through the credit card company in the end since Mesh refused to discuss or acknowledge cancellation of the order over the telephone...or respond to emails....or letters...not quite sure how a company functions when they treat customers so badly.
Sorry to hear everyone has had such a bad experience with MESH. I guess I'm lucky, I've had two orders from them including this laptop and had no problems, apart from yes they did deliver 2 weeks late on both occasions. I can't complain for the price though, £1113.99 for the spec is a bargain.

Maybe best for all of us to avoid them in future!
Ended up sending the laptop back to Mesh on Friday. Such a bad company to deal with.

Ordered the same one for about the same price on Ebuyer, and getting delivered Tuesday. At least they're a company with decent customer services.
I ordered one and will agree MESH is awful.... truly. Ill never get back the cost of my phonecalls. Absolute bunch of numpties. Illd rather spend my money on jello than this company....
Well in the same boat here - been waiting 2 weeks, they took the money and more annoyingly, these have now trickled into the UK in their MSI form at a similar price. Mesh have been such a big name in the UK for so long that I purchased based on trust and perception rather than doing my usual research; will be less hasty next time. VERY unhappy customer x2

i take it this isnt such a great deal then?
worth the £30 upgrade to 24"?
I've been lucky not to need much from CS but if I've had a query about my PC they've always answered quite sharpish.

I've read a few stories about returns and delivery woes though and it does make you think twice. What you should remember though is that happy customers don't report anything on the interwobble though.

Just my thoughts...
love the customer sevices story
Have Mess got any better with their customer service coz they really used to suck big!

Possibly not!

I didnt say that id just bought it this morning did i and i also said id bought part of the lot from amazon. IE the motherboard processor and memory, as it happens i didnt bother to vote hot or cold on the subject as i had nothing to compare a prebuilt unit against and i had got windows 7 cheap when it first came out.

So before you go spouting off saying im talking a load of tosh, get your facts straight. I have nothing to gain from lying to people, i bought the exact same motherboard and processor and different memory manufacturer, different harddrive (much better and bigger one) and the case for a lot less.

I cant understand you try to help people, you help them out with deals or other information and you start saying people are lying. As i said in my original post, its a good deal for anyone wanting a pc (and you could swap all the components straight into an htpc case.)


My facts are very straight. Your original post said you can get it much cheaper by getting the parts separately which you have failed to backup and I believe is close to impossible. I also don't see how your post helped anyone.
1 x Extra Value Black Opera ATX Desktop Case 500W PSU (20+4 pin) 125291 £34.02 (ebuyer
1 x Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache - OEM 173804 54.35 (ebuyer)
Asus AM3 M4A785TD-M Evo M-ATX 5200MT/S [Electronics] £63.21 (marketplace seller) amazon
Corsair DDR3, XMS-1333,£45.23 (market seller) amazon
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Quad-Core Processor - 3.20 GHz,8MB Cache,Socket AM3,125W,45 nm,3 Year Warranty,Retail Boxed £121.90 (Actual Amazon)

So £318. Iwhen ive looked theres another £15 to add on for VAT on the hard drive and case that i didnt take into account. But still for me much much cheaper than the £440.

However looking now you would have to buy windows (which i already had) and a dvd drive (but tbh you can get a dual layer writer for less than £10 in most computer shops not bothered to look online.

Deal actually looks quite good when ive looked at the price of windows.

Just had a look now also to buy the memory normally would cost Another £15 at least on top.

BUT i did not lie about my components. Not able to get for that price at the moment so non comparible now so much...which is why i didnt vote.
Feel free to list all parts and prices paid with links etc if you want to help people. Just saying that you did it cheaper yourself doesn't really help anyone, links with prices etc does.

The Misco deal has a poor mobo, has only 2 dimms slots, the £50 cashback takes upto 56 days and the CPU is benchmarked a fair bit lower than the Phenom. Personally I would pay the £40 more for the Mesh

I'd love to see a poll on Mesh with a good range of voters... Unfortunately I don't really think polls give a true idea of the facts as you only ever hear the bad news. I can't criticise folk for this as I'm as guilty as the next man for ignoring polls on things I'm happy with. Vodafone springs to mind... I'd definitely vote on that poll. Can't stand the CS!

As I said, I'm going to be upgrading within the next few months and worry when I hear these stories. The fact is though that last time round there wasn't a problem. But then I never really had to get anything fixed - just advice and a bit of help sorting things out - which went as smooth as a proverbial baby's bum!

I know... I'll go to PC World and ask them what I should do!
Shocking company to deal with - as some of the other posters have noted.
Made the mistake of buying a Mesh in 2000. Had faulty RAM on delivery. Kept trying to tell them but they don't listen. You must uninstall this and re-install that bla bla bla. After about a week they finally issued an RMA to allow me to send it back. Lost the use of it for weeks as it too ages for them to repair it.
Been Mesh-free and very happy since 2000.....yipeeeee !!!!!

curious to what you know of this graphics card its not been launched yet?

but its due to replace ATI HD 4650/4550/4350 graphics cards!

US $99

info http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20100118PD212.html

besides how is a directx 11 graphics card GDDR5 low end? its able to play future directx!!!


Clicking on it on the mesh site gives the following details:

ATI Radeon™ HD 5450 GPU Specifications
292 million 40nm transistors
TeraScale 2 Unified Processing Architecture
80 Stream Processing Units
8 Texture Units
16 Z/Stencil ROP Units
4 Color ROP Units
DDR3 memory interface

...

Engine clock speed: 675 MHz
Processing power (single precision): 108 GigaFLOPS
Polygon throughput: 675M polygons/sec
Data fetch rate (32-bit): 21.6 billion fetches/sec
Texel fill rate (bilinear filtered): 5.4 Gigatexels/sec
Pixel fill rate: 2.7 Gigapixels/sec
Anti-aliased pixel fill rate: 10.8 Gigasamples/sec
Memory clock speed: 800 MHz DDR3
Memory data rate: 1.6 Gbps DDR3
Memory bandwidth: 12.8 GB/sec
TDP: 11 Watts

That's a low-end card, barely faster than the 4550 and nowhere near the 4650 (which has 320 stream processing units, a pixel fill rate of 5.2GP/s and memory bandwidth of 22.4GB/s with GDDR3).

It's far to slow to expect it to handle DirectX 10 effects in practical gaming, let alone DirectX 11 despite technically being able to run them.

HELP!!!
just because its the 5 series with direct x 11 does not mean its fast, for exxample hi end 4 series cards such as 4890 are faster. And another thing you must remember just because it supports directx11 does not mean it will run it reallly fast this card may struggle running games in direct x11 and you wil have to use directx9 instead. The botttom line is this is a low end card yes it can play games but not with good frame rate or graphics detail. IF you want a 5 series ATI card aim for 5750 or better.

And you must always include delivery into the price! For that reason im voting cold.
I agree. I paid for a very expensive "on site" warranty with Mesh. Had a problem, came out and fixed it no bother. Same problem again - they said I'd have to send it in and it would be away for weeks. I asked what happened to the on-site warranty and they said as it was the same fault, they wouldn't come out again!

So they can't fix it the first time and it's somehow my fault. Waste of time they are!

Extremely cold from me.

I ordered a system from them in October and after waiting over a month and the graphics card being "downgraded" from the one i previously ordered , tried to get a free upgrade to the current equivalent model.

I completely understand the previous post of patronizing , rude and arrogant staff.They didn't care and even offered to cancel the order for me (Nearly £700) which i duly took after waiting 2 days for a supervisor to call me back and do a deal and getting no response. I wasn't asking for the world just a £35 upgrade for the inconvenience for a graphics card that was still slightly inferior to the 4870 i originally ordered.The "new" spec was a 5750.

Then took me 3 days to get a refund.

Deal with them at your peril.

The speakers on their site show a pair of 2.1 Hercules, indeed the only speakers they sell on their Componant store are Hercules. They sent a £6.50 (amazon) set of Trust speakers and "forgot" the extra drive, when I complained they said they only SELL ONE MAKE OF SPEAKER (obvoiously not) and the PICTURES ARE FOR ILLSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY!!! I was furious but becasue they they missed out a Drive I was able to get a FULL REFUND under the Sale of Goods Act.

As this has taken a bit of a hammering, can someone point me in the direction of a better spec machine for a similar price? I was going to order this but if there are better deals I won't bother.

If most of the negatives are down to Mesh service I'll take my chances, I've ordered with them before with no problems.

Beware of Mesh!! After having two previous sytems I ordered a third last month the Matrix 925 hd, as I had my own 5.1 speakers I saw the Hercules 2.1 both in the Spec drop down menu and in the componant store....guess what?? they send a crappy pair of Trust 2.1, I complianed and they although they only stock ONE MAKE OF SPEAKER ...HERCULES (OBVIOUSLY A LIE) I had to accept these as the pictures on the website where for illustation purposes only!! That made me angry so when I opened the Unit to find only the Blue RAY DRIVE AND NOT THE EXTRA dvdrw AS ORDERED AND PAID FOR..I cancelled under the Sale of Goods Act and contacted my Credit CARD COMPANY TOO.

Never again with Mush!!! They are rude arrogant and very patronising and I do hope they go the same way as Tiny Time and Evesham!! OH AND iM STILL WAITING FOR MY REFUND!!! AND....breath
