Service, quality, performance and a good price. What more could a person want?
“I am a relatively new owner of a Maingear computer, having received my custom configured Vybe Tuned For VR in early September of this year. While I haven't been able to spend as much time with the machine as I'd like in the last 3 months, I am very happy with both the PC and the overall experience I have had dealing with Maingear.
Starting at the beginning, their website was very easy to navigate, and the number of options available let me select the perfect combination of components to meet my price-performance mark. When I didn't understand something, or wasn't sure whether all of my hardware selections would play nice with each other, they quickly answered all of my questions. The pricing was very reasonable, especially considering the quality of what I was about to receive.
After placing the order, I received daily updates of the build status, informing me of what was going on. Fortunately, my build experienced no delays, but any delay would have been more bearable knowing why it had occurred. This small service provides such an improved customer experience.
My shipment arrived on time, and I was very impressed with the care evident in the packaging, including how the CPU was boxed inside of another box with additional cushioning. But in my mind the single biggest detail that demonstrated that Maingear actually cared about my equipment was the extra packaging inside of the PC that supported the video card. And since I was inside, I could see that the build quality was first rate, with all cables neatly bundled and tied off. Nothing was out of place.
When I turned on the PC for the first time, there were absolutely no problems. It booted right up, and it's been working perfectly since then. WIN 10 boots up as fast as the monitor can turn on. As promised, no bloatware was installed, no extra icons on the desktop, just what I needed to get up and running. Since then I have had no issues installing any of my software, including some old software developed for Win95.
For background, I've been running and programming computers since my first Commodore 64. I've purchased 3 PC systems, and then built 4 computers because I became picky about hardware selections; I have high standards. I chose not to build this system because of other obligations and a lack of time, and it was very stressful shopping for a company that I thought could live up to my expectations. Maingear certainly exceeded my expectations. I couldn't be happier.”
