Just over a year ago, I bought a similar one from ebuyer (Zoostorm Desktop PC, AMD Quad-Core A10-6800K 4.1GHz, 8GB RAM, 2TB HDD, DVDRW, AMD HD 8670D, No Operating System), so am happy to give my opinion on them.

Firstly - The power supply is cheap and noisy. I think my one was something like 250W, so I have replaced that with a beefier quiet one and now the computer is really really quiet.

Other than that, it has all worked perfectly. It games well, (obviously not the latest, but runs things like Left 4 Dead 2 fine), and I've had no problems with it whatsoever.

HOT! Great price. The money saved can be put towards a pair of these!

On the three I've come across it's the CPU cooler that's noisy. oO

Got my daughter a Zoostorm desktop last year and other than an occasional noisy fan (which stops with a tap on the side of the case) it runs great. Ideal for her as she's not a games player and great for me as the PSU is only 250W so cheaper to run than the more powerful units. This is a good spec for the price especially as windows itself is £70+ standalone.

What is the CPU equivalent to in Intel terms?

Hello i bought a Zoostorm PC similar to the above last month for £229 from woolworths. It had 6gb of ram the case is fine (if a bit boring) very quiet power supply and the on board graphics were so good that the graphics card we bought to put in it was taken out as it was not any better.

Can vouch for Zoostorm, at work we've got 4 of them in the office and never had any problems over the past year
#11
This is the company that own Zoostorm - CMS-Computing.
Might be helpful to give people more of an understanding about them.
#12
Hm. Cheaper than I can build it myself. Although that's probably because of the kickback Zoostorm get for installing Windows 8.1 + Bing.
#13
Stick Windows 7 on there, nice cheap PC...(awaits abuse from people that don't like Windows 7...)
#14
For the value you cant beat it, although I purchased an i5 Zoostorm and wish I had just built my own in the two years ive had it I have changed

Case due to fitting a graphics card
PSU
added a card reader
changed the memory
Blu ray player
added an SSD

so in my case I should have just saved up for all the bits separate, however its working great and at the time It was the cheapest option

in conclusion if you want something straight out the box then go for it, if you think like me you might want to add or replace things then its not worth messing around.

Personally, I think this is a better option:-

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/intel-i3-3-5ghz-desktop-4gb-ram-229-99-saveonlaptops-1979639

Expired, but still available. I got one for my son for xmas. I bought it from from their sister company box.co.uk. It came with a broken front bezel, but I contacted box.co.uk and asked them to send out a new bezel which they did immediately.

Faster out of the box than the Zoostorm, but also lots of upgrade potential. It has a good i3 processor already, but will take the latest i7 (socket 1150). A lot of people in that link above have already added an additional 4GB RAM and a low profile Nvidia GTX 750 ti graphics card. I imagine that is what my son will do when funds allow, but for now he is more than happy with what he can do with the integrated Intel HD4400 graphics.

Things have come on since I bought my last PC as the initial setup was simple - plug in mouse, keyboard, screen, power and go. Nothing to setup in the OS, just a backlog of Windows updates to apply and a nagging free trial of Bull Guard anti-virus. No nasty bloatware.

Also comes with a DVD writer and card reader. The one I ordered also came with the Core i3 4160 rather than 4150!

Yes, it's a bit noisier than a laptop but his music drowns that out. It's a slimline case, which does restrict your graphics card upgrade options, but then also takes up less space on his desk.

Been looking for a New PC to spend my Amazon Vouchers, Thanks OP
#17
I've a zoostorm new when XP was & AGP was graphics!. All on original components, never missed a beat & running linux mint these days. That deal is better than the Amd A8-6600k deal I bought last year which was same price as this one except with no operating system & 8GB ram. Inbuilt graphics are more than good enough-I've not put a card into ours. However, I did see this doesn't seem to have a DVD drive (no big deal) or HDMI out (that might be-it is for me). If you're not a gamer this IMO will do you fine. Could do with another (matched) 4GB stick in it though to really take advantage of the AMD graphics. If you are intending to stick a card into it then that 250W PSU won't cut it.
HTH

Interesting - thanks for this. I always think it's a good idea to add an SSD in addition to the HDD to any desktop system, can i just plug and play in the zoostorm or is there not enough space/ power? Is it possible to do on this suggested system?
#20
Bought an i5 pc few weeks ago & all good really apart from on/off switch which demands you press in certain manner to work, mine had gigabyte motherboard so no so bad, the hd in read/write is far noisier than the fans which are quite quiet!

Not something I've done, but there is definitely space in the SaveOnLaptops/Box.co.uk machine so should also be plenty in the Zoostorm too. They only draw 2 or 3 Watts. There are utilities available to clone your OS from the HDD to the SSD.

Just so you know, the wattage a power supply supports has no bearing on what the pc actually uses. If you used a 1000w psu in that pc, it would still only use what it needs. would make no difference to how expensive it is to run.

My laptop runs on the same specs "AMD A10 5700 Quad Core 3.4GHz Processor
AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series graphics" absolutely flies through everything, no lag using Adobe light house programs, Photoshop, Sony vegas etc. renders 4k videos on YouTube in seconds, it's a beastly processor and the dedicated graphics chip allows smooth gaming and very good frame rates on all the top titles.

Not sure about the brand or how reliable but there's some info on the processor. 4gb of ram isn't enough really though so if you to go ahead it would be a worthwhile to upgrade to 8gb.
#26
Just repaired an earlier Zoostorm model with the same CPU. Was just out of warranty, and the cpu died, so i replaced it with an A10 5800. Anyhoo, the noisy fan on this one was the heatsink fan - hadn't been configured in the bios, so runs at full pelt as soon as the system turn on. Changed the target CPU temp and lowered the minimum fan speed and runs much quieter now. Mobo was a MSI a55m-e33

I had a Zoostorm some time ago (quad core, gaming rig). The PSU was sub par and I replaced it with something beefier. Apart from that, I had no issues with it at all and my son now has it in his bedroom complete with a new hard drive and gfx card. Still works well.

For office/light use this is perfect, Zoostorm are a pretty popular brand which I've used before and had no problems.
Spending £400+ is only necessary for a High Spec gaming pc, anything else is a waste of money.

Love the way its not just windows 8.1 its windows 8.1 with bing

Zoostorm don't actually manufacture any of the parts within the computer itself. AMD make some excellent processors, MSI is an excellent motherboard company, if the PSU is from a decent manufacturer, that's all you really need to worry about. Atleast with a desktop computer, if anything goes wrong, you can replace JUST that part and not the whole thing!

I presume the other 3 are Dell, HP, and Lenovo.
Non of those are manufactured in the UK, which is what I was saying. They are most probably the largest UK PC manufacturer.

Yeah you would be right, it's just something Zoostorm advertise to me because we buy from them direct as a reseller.
