2.0 out of 5 stars BELOW STANDARD, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item looks nice but upon installing came to find original screws cant be used to mount time, hazard and air con controls so had to find some that fit or risk cracking plastic.

The bottom air con buttons have a huge gap inbetween and the dials just about fit in to place didnt come with the radio removal keys even though pictured mine was already removed so not to much of a problem.

In my honest opinion the product is of poor quality and could have been made better, will do for now as plan on changing at some point anyway but then i guess you get what you pay for

Packaging was very minimal in a plastic bag placed inbetween one piece of cardboard and folded then stuck in a delivery bag quite suprised it didnt break.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with computer, very fast and came with extra games so got 4 in total instead of the 2 that i had purchased with computer, a bit disappointed Battlefield 4 wasnt one opf them but still great games i was able to download.
Steven at Vibox CX was very helpful and called back when problems arose after contacting them.
I had ordered from them before and was not overly impressed with the service I had recived previously so was in two minds about using them again, but on this occasion it seems they have improved.
No fault of the company but can not get the hang of Windows 8 but that being said at time of writing review that is only problem i have and sure i will find a work around to get back to windows 7 layout havent played any games on the machine yet so will review performance in a few days.

*Update 17th May*
So had a few days playing around, getting used to windows 8 once you get used to it the tiles function is quite useful, was a bit lost for things like control panel and my computer section but now i found those liking it a lot more, Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, Saints row 4 running all on ultra and tested fps using Fraps everything runs at a solid 60fps slight drop every now and again but very minimal and for a few seconds if that, did have to go into bios to boost ram speed as was pre-set quite low. PC is very quiet even after using for a good 7-8 hours testing games max temp i reached was 28C, loving the corsair water cooler. Played Dayz Mod and Arma 3 for a few hours each, with Dayz Mod depending on server quality was averaging between 30-60 fps on ultra settings, Arma 3 a steady 35 dropping to around 25-30 during games with a lot of people which is fine for me as dropping settings will improve fps was just seeing how much i could get out of it.
Would recommend pc to any gamer who wants good quality and a reliable PC and if your in the know can prob push the 290 a bit more than me as not really into all the o'clocking that is possible just needed something that can play gasmes a bit better than my lappy and also good for everyday use

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY PLEASED WITH PURCHASE, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item came a day before first expected date which was the 11th April.

Held back leaving a review as did have a few problems with it blue screening, after some research found out it wasnt the system itself but a problem with AMD drivers conflicting with the windows audio drivers a quick search of google, reinstall of windows and drivers excluding the AMD high definition audio which is downloaded with the catalyst update, and the system now runs fine.

Runs the games ive tested at ultra and keeps a steady FPS will be upgrading ram as isnt the best but for what I do now it is fine just getting into pc gaming/modifying so havent done anything special yet but will in tiime.

Case itself is nicely lit and not to bright very quiet even though i have seen forums stating the R9 290x is very loud, maybe i havent pushed it to its full potential yet?

Very pleased with customer service/technical support for replying to emails so quickly and in particular Richard at customer service.

Every call/email and all my questions were answered.
Technical team very knowledgable compared to other companies i have dealt with (Vibox).

Will be using them for parts to upgrade and when i dive in and do a full build for myself :-)

Update:17.04.2014
Had to send back as blue screen problem came back. Feedback from technical support was faulty graphics card. Even so requested refund and have gone down the route of building my own still would recommend as a great company and pc itself when working was brilliant

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT THE SAME COMPUTER I PURCHASED, SHOULDNT BE ALOUD TO TRADE, 21 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Where to begin, firstly this isn't the product i brought and paid for.
The item i purchased has vanished from existence leaving a lower spec machine with the same comments as the one i purchased.
and the link just takes me to this vibox complete 3.
As someone who uses the comment system to a certain extent to know whether the purchase im making is a good idea then i feel this is very misleading. Vibox's explanation for this was 'this computer is the newer version' if so why do the comments date back to 2012???? My point exactly they are advertising comments for one computer then substituting the computers once they are sold.
I have no knowledge of how this computer performs as it isn't even close to the spec i paid for.
Mine was an 8 core 4ghz with 2tb hdd and 16gb of ram and was £949.99, very different to what you are seeing.
Some might ask why im complaining if my spec was higher, simple, because i can not give a fair review on the item i purchased and the comments from this computer are not applicable if they were the same for the one i purchased so people like yourselves are made to feel you are buying a good computer when in actual fact only maybe one of the reviews is relevant.

Now for the PC itself, it was packaged well and looked very nice, was fast and did all i needed it to do game-wise......Until 3 hours after setting up...oh no a blue screen.....hmmmmm now that shouldn't happen should it. reinstalled software via Vibox advice 2 hours after that a further 2 blue screens, maybe it was what i was doing, i think not first time i was playing a game so possibly, the further 2 times i was browsing the web.
now for the first day to get 3 blue screens signals trouble straight away. i again contacted Vibox and again was asked about reinstalling software in all honesty i couldn't be bothered if its a non-starter you get rid so said i just wanted to return and get a refund and possibly order a different model, to which they were happy to agree to.
During the conversation though i was asked to remove my original comment from this item about it not being the one i paid for and in a moment of me not thinking straight even though comments were valid i agreed(probably why it looks like they have amazing feedback) so 5 days later i requested to return the PC, and lo and behold whilst removing information from computer it suffered a further 3 blue screens in the space of an hour....oh joy.
So PC went the next day and was informed once received refund would be processed after PC was looked over, fine i was even going to order a different model to see if that would help but no the saga continues.
Only 2 customer service agents helped me and were polite, but one just wasn't having a good day and made the whole thing even worse, upon asking about information they had provided me as being incorrect i was told it wasn't incorrect they had just hoped to do things quicker than planned, im sorry i don't live on your hopes if you have a policy stick to it. i was expecting a refund to be done today and then show up in my account 3 days later, but now today im being told it would take 5 days to process and then another 3 days for amazon to then process it, no no no that isn't what i was told yesterday my dear the refund came through the same day so amazing how it would have taken 8 days, i was even told i had a go at the same person more than once and had the phone hung up on me, im sorry challenging information you wrongly informed me of isn't having a go, if you get it wrong don't try and blame me. they are quick to take your money then wash their hands if anything should go wrong i should have looked closer at the negative comments and not so much at the good ones as someone else had pretty much exactly the same experience i had and was told exactly the same thing about newer model being advertised, so the discontinued a product twice in the space of a few months, please.
i shall not be ordering from them again as they clearly don't teach the staff very well and the engineers that build the computers don't look like they know what they are doing, even technical support had me sit on the phone while they goggled another problem i had with an adapter for the computer, training is an integral part of technical support in case you hadn't realized.
I suggest you beware when purchasing as im sure some of these reviews for their computers are not always for the right products

5.0 out of 5 stars So far great service and exactly as described, 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Came very fast considering from overseas, faster than my pc has and that was ordered from just a few hundred miles away, but anyway item was packaged well and with little waste, no official box but expected that from description so to those who have complained of such should maybe try reading, havent yet loaded as pc is still in transit any problems then my review will change but based on the majority i would say it wont be a problem installing, would recommend based on experience up to now.
Update 05/04/2013
Computer arrived and installed product with no problems at all will be using again
