I purchased my Puget Systems computer this past May. (Wow! It's been six months already!) Here is my initial review.
Well, it worked perfectly right out of the box, and still runs perfectly and quietly. I use the machine for practically all of my computing tasks, but its primary purpose is working with very large image files in Photo Shop CS5. It was this use that guided my choice of components. If you interested in a machine dedicated to working with large images, the specs for the machine are given below,
My build is enclosed in the Antec P180 case, which I like a lot. I do have to keep an eye on the front filters for dust. I check these and clean them about once per month. I do open the case once in a while to check for dust, as well. The front side filters do an excellent job, I must say.
Aside from the clean build and quietness, I really appreciate the lack of crudware and the backup setup done by the Puget techs when I ordered my computer! I was able to install all my progams and hardware easily and get right to work in short order.
I have had absolutely no problems with my Puget computer! It easily exceeds my expectations, and I couldn't be happier!
Once again, I offer my thanks to the Puget Systems staff for their help, skill, and attention to detail!
