"Stealth Machines did a great job with helping me pick out my new rig. I got some great feedback on what parts work well together and are generally good quality. The email response time was slow at some points but all around a great experience. As always, building a computer yourself is cheaper but I think these guys do great work. The ten year warranty is comforting and we'll see if I even need it! Thanks!"
"I am one very happy customer! I just received my Espionage desktop from Stealth Machines today and it is AWESOME! So far the performance is ripping fast. The Thermaltake GT Snow case is beautiful and I can't believe how quite this thing is. My wife came in and actually asked if it was on. My experience with Josef and Stealth Machines was excellent. Order process was smooth. Josef actually called me after my order just to make sure the order was correct and to ensure my system was spec'd properly. Time from order to deliver was very fast....10 working days. I have done business with several big named competitors in the past, but as of now, Josef and Stealth Machines have won me over. I would...and will....recommend them to anyone looking for a new gaming rig. Keep it up guys. And Josef.....thank you.Regards,Rich"
"I had a very good experience ordering from and working with StealthMachines to complete my order. I would recommend this company to anyone."
"I really didn't want to write a bad review for Stealth Machines. Everything about them looks amazing: their products, the fact they are involved with a solar panel company... everything LOOKS great about this company and what they do.But the custom machine I got from them has been nothing but trouble from day one. It is still quite buggy, crashes often, has unexplained slow downs, runs hot (with fan always at max speed and noise, despite a liquid cooling system - if I shut the door to my room the room gets 4 or 5 degrees hotter within an hour or so). The original bios chip had (apparently) never been tested and didn't work upon arrival, so I had to order a new one through EVGA before I could ever even get the darn thing up and running. I still have an unresolved issue where it will, randomly, reassign the drive boot sequence so that windows never loads - so I have to open the tower, unplug my other HD's and restart it so that it will reset to the SSD - this happens about once a week or so. The list goes on and on. I even paid extra for a "rush" and never even got to use the thing for over a month and a half after receiving it because of all these problems (many of which are still present and ongoing). I highly doubt it will ever work correctly, and for what I had to pay, that is completely unacceptable. All these problems have received nonchalant and disinterested responses from the company, and they have always directed me to EVGA instead - so basically I've had to try and solve all my problems myself. I should have either bought from a big box or else learned a little bit more about how to build computers and built it myself with parts directly from EVGA - 'cause they're who I've had to deal with anyway. There has been practically no support aid from Stealth Machines.Again, I feel quite bad giving this company a bad review. It looks like most other people are quite satisfied with their purchases so mine may be some perfect storm of problems... but I've never had so many frustrations and problems with a machine before. That includes the pos (brand name removed for site term violations) I got for my mother years ago that ran Windows ME.I don't like supporting big box stores or big corporate electronic companies like (names removed for violation of website policy), but I've had so many problems with this machine that at this point I don't care anymore. I just want reliable products, and Stealth Machines did not deliver that to me."
"Great service and fast delivery. As computer arrived I just had to finish some small assembly (stuff that would be damaged in transit) and install the OS (I did not get the OS from them). Later I had a few questions and their support was quick and effective. No complaints whatsoever."
"wow I can't say enough I purchased a $5,500 laptop custom built to my specs and StealthMachines came through with flying colors! I am truly future proof with this build. I have destroyed over the counter laptops and now I have something that my kids will enjoy as I pass it on. Video production, Music editing to burning this Laptop does it all, at the same time reducing my "rendering" to mins! Delivered on time, helped with cost cutting, passed on great advice, easy to reach and is the best kept secret in the industry! One negative, I didn't get a t-shirt! "
"Buying from StealthMachines is like buying from a local business in your home town... you will receive personalized, friendly service. Before choosing to buy my PC, I called the StealthMachines customer service number to inquire about a particular part. Expecting an automated voice system, I was absolutely shocked when Josef, the owner of the company, picked right up and was ready to answer my question right on the spot. After placing my order, things only got better, as I quickly received a call with recommendations from Josef on how to maximize the performance I would get out of my gaming PC. Several weeks later, I received the most pristine and beautifully built computer that I have ever seen, and it runs like an absolute dream. When also taking into account the very reasonable prices, I would recommend StealthMachines to absolutely anyone who has a passion for high performance gaming. "
"What can be said that hasn't already. Stealthmachines beats their rivals in both there prices and (for now) their free 5 year warrenty. I took the plunge based on reviews from this site and overhearing fellow classmates talking about custom computers. I thought "Its too good to be true", a buisness actually caring about their customers, but its not. 3 weeks after my order I received a carefully packed High quality lightning fast computer. Josef the owner answered all my e-mails and returned all my calls himself in a timely manner. I'am very satisfied and look forword to doing buisness again in the coming year."
"Overall experience was great. I ordered the computer and received it about four weeks after the ordering process. Prior to selecting StealhMachines as my computer build company, I shopped around other boutique/gamning computer companies. What sold me were a couple of things. I appreciated the tidbits of information on the website that steered you away from certain things like overclocking and soundcards..on other sites, OC is often bragged about but in reality, it's probably not needed for us casual gamers who just want to be able to play the lastest and greatest games available. Another reason, is that Josef, the owner, personally responsed to a few inquiries that I had about computers in general and also to my specific build recommendation. I appreciated the prompt feedback he provided. Lastly, you just can't beat a free, five year warranty! Enough said.I did run into a snag with my computer as it was damaged during the shipment but nothing really worth sending back for. Also, my computer was missing its data hard drive but this was rectified within five days of me telling Jess (from StealthMachines) of the problem. I installed the hard drive myself and it was pretty easy. Gotta love the SATA! Josef and Jess were apologetic about the damage to my computer and the oversight of the missing hard drive and I truly felt that they were genuine. I asked why an invoice ot computer spec sheet wasn't included in my shipment and was told that it was a just a little thing to do to help save the environment. I can understand that. My spec sheet was available online and I could print it out if I wanted. One last thing. during the build process, I did have to e-mail a couple of times to find the status of my build and they responded within a day. I did call one time and was told immmediately of the status.I would recommend StealthMachines if you are looking for 1) Quality compents. By the way, I ordered a special case that was not offered on the website, the Corsair 650..and they ordered it! I love it..beautiful case. They truly will custom build for you! 2) Excellent Customer Service 3) Excellent Warranty to name a few.Thank you, StealthMachines, for my dream computer. It made coming back from my Afghanistan deployment, a great, informed experience."
"Great service. Josef came through in the end. "
"I was referred to stealthMachines by a friend and thank him daily for it. Great company, great customer service, amazing product at a fair price. I will be back in the future and I have been telling all my friends to buy from them. "
"Well...what else is there to say that hasn't already been said here about a company that has a 10/10 record???I thought I was a genius 10 yrs ago when I ordered the biggest, baddest Dell you could get - all made to my specs (at least based on the very few options they gave me). So, this time around I started looking at the custom builder sites and realized that I could get FAR more for my money by using them instead of Dell. But... the reviews of these companies (cyberpower, ect.) had me scared stiff! You tell yourself that every company gets a bad review from time to time because you just can't please everyone. But YES you can and StealthMachines does it every time! I found them just in time! I was about to order from somewhere else and then their site popped up on a search.I researched them (probably more than a crime detective even could) and found out info they probably think no one knows, but it turns out that EVERYTHING was on the up & up with Josef & StealthMachines! I own a small business in the construction industry where we build one-of-a-kind custom creations for our customers, just like Josef does here. And it occurred to me that if I can legitimately have a business with a 100% satisfied customer base then someone else can too, and I found them! My company is not THE only one that CAN please everyone every time. There is also StealthMachines!As everyone else has said: personal attention from the owner, better prices & selection than ANY other place, screaming fast and silent as a whisper machine, clean & professional build & ship, and on & on. My only regret is that I didn't get a poster! I even loved their logo so much that I created a desktop background around it!These guys are the real deal and you will NOT even come close to the details or the whole experience if you order somewhere else. It's a crime to me that Michael Dell & M. Zuckerburg are filthy rich when it is people like Josef that should be. Because... he cares about each customer & build as if it were for his own family!All the happy customers (and we've already discussed that it is ALL of them) should not just stop here, with this site, when speaking highly of Stealthmachines. They should each take at least one minute a week to share their link on Facebook or anywhere else they can think to do it. Continue to support the company that gave YOU a warranty far longer than any other company would have!There is no "considering" for me as to whether I'll buy from them again; I WILL! (And probably sooner than I need to!)"
"The machine runs excellent; every game I own on the highest settings in 1080. I had a hiccup with my video card when the computer arrived, but once we determined it was a hardware issue Josef quickly replaced the faulty one. Overall I'm very pleased with the computer and would definitely consider coming back to stealthmachines."
"It was time for me to buy another computer since my other one was getting tired after 6 years of constant use. I checked out a lot of custom comp sites on the internet since I want a machine that can do gaming and graphics so I knew I would need something better than the average machine. After looking around I became more and more disappointed as the price points seemed ridiculously high. I thought about constructing my own machine but that didn't seem to be a whole lot cheaper and there was the risk I would do something wrong or have it turn out to be less than what I hoped for. I kept looking and found StealthMachines. After reading the reviews here I decided to see what they could offer me.I corresponded with Josef and told him what I was looking for. He responded to my emails quickly and made some good suggestions to help me select the machine that I was looking for. I was pleasantly surprised to see he was able to get me the comp I wanted and at a very reasonable price. I didn't have to wait very long and it was shipped to me. The computer was well packaged to prevent any damage from occurring during it's transit. I started it up yesterday and I love it. It is whisper quiet and it is one fast machine. All the lag has disappeared from the MMO I play, lol. All my previous computer frustrations have disappeared.The warranty on the machine is more than generous and makes this an even better value. I am extremely satisfied with the entire experience and would definitely recommend StealthMachines to anyone else that is in the market for a new computer."
"I put off buying a new PC as long as I could and finally time came. I didn't want an off the shelf unit that I'd end up modifying to meet my needs or get surprised by finding it contained proprietary parts I'd be stuck with. After a month of looking I decided on Stealth Machines. I wanted a killer machine and I had a fairly good budget to spend. I spoke to Josef at length both before I committed to buying from Stealth Machines and once I decided they would get the order. Even though I had a lot to spend Josef still advised me on what to buy that gave the performance I wanted but cost less than what I wanted cost. He guided me to a machine that was far more than what I expected by advising me on where to spend the money. I got more performance-wise and still stayed within my budget. Service? At the last minute a newer, faster version of the video cards I had ordered became available and Josef immediately contacted me about them and gave me an opportunity to upgrade, which I did. I wish I could meet him in person and thank him for this superb machine I'm writing this on. The PC itself is unbelievable. I do a lot of video and audio stuff but I also am a gamer. This beast chews through the most demanding games with every setting on maximum and it never slows, stutters, or does any of the things that seem a part of gaming on a PC. It's been on 24/7 since I got it and it has been flawless. It does everything well. I'm retired so it gets a serious workout for many hours every day. It arrived securely packed showing a lot of thought and care there, too. The few mundane questions I had were answered quickly and clearly. My face hurts from smiling so much! All I can say is I can't say enough about Josef, Stealth Machines and the Shadow computer system they built for me. I'd never shop anywhere else for a computer system.ADDITION: Over the past week I installed about a dozen and a half games, among them the original Crysis. It's still considered a PC humbler. I ran Crysis on this computer at 1600 X 1200 resolution with all the viseo settings maxed. It ran perfectly- no stuttering, no slow downs- just smooth as a movie playing. It is a truly magnificent looking game when run on a machine that can handle it! Admittedly, I haven't played all the way through it, just the first several sections. If I encounter any problems I will post back but I don't forsee anything this Stealh Machines masterpiece couldn't devour. "
