Extremely pleasant experience from start to finish
“After reading about many of the positive reviews about HIDevolution on other forums, I decided to take the risk and purchase from them too even though they were literally on the other side of the world.
Their representative(shoutout to Donald) that assisted my order was one of the most helpful person that I've had the pleasure of interacting with. He made sure I had an informed decision by going through my order and specifications of the laptop, making suggestions and helping you shave costs if necessary.
Initially I was looking at the Clevo P775DM3 with a certain spec, but after some discussion with their representative, I decided to go for the Clevo P870KM1 instead. Specs are below:

I received a discount due to my participation in a forum, as well as another for payment via wire transfer. After order was placed and payment made, they confirmed my payment in less than 12 hours(which is amazing!) and moved my order onto the next stage. Timeline from start to finish: 15/03/17 : Payment Received 16/03/17 : Parts on order 25/03/17 : n Production 30/03/17 : Shipped 4/4/17 : Delivered
For my case, Fedex messed up my international priority shipment which guarantees 1-3 business days, thus the late delivery. HIDevolution acquired a full refund of the shipping costs from them and will be forwarding the amount to me.
I have received my laptop just yesterday, and the laptop is working in perfect condition. The packaging was huge and secure from damage for the laptop. There was a small mistake whereby they sent me the US power cord only, even though I opted for a UK one too. A quick email and it has been solved as they will be mailing me the power cord within the same day or the next.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I recommend anyone looking to purchase an enthusiast-grade laptop to acquire one from HIDevolution, as not only do HIDevolution provide certain customization options that can't be found from other resellers , but the people that work there are truly amazing in what they do.”
