Update on Samsung SSD Reliability

We have been very public about how reliable Samsung SSDs have been in the past, so we wanted to explain why we are now moving part of our line to Sabrent.

Reflecting on 2022

It’s important to take a step back to celebrate your accomplishments and all that you achieved this year. Otherwise, you’re likely to just jump into the next project (and the next, and the next) while letting the grind slowly get to you. So I wanted to take a minute to do that for our teams here at Puget Systems!

Puget Systems’ 2023 Event Schedule

Happy Holidays! It’s been a very busy year here at Puget Systems and I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on it, share what we’ll be up to in 2023 and where you can find us.  At Puget Systems, one of the things we value most is relationships. There often isn’t a better

It has been a few months now, marked by a lot of hardware shortages in this industry, so I wanted to revisit the situation and look at some additional metrics regarding CPU sales here at Puget Systems.

How We Handle Peripherals Is Changing

Since our founding, more than twenty years ago, Puget Systems has offered a small selection of keyboards, mice, and other accessories for purchase and use with our computers. The exact categories and models we have carried changed over time, of course, but it was always just an assumed part of our business – after all, people need input devices, displays, backup drives, etc. But what if that isn’t actually the best approach for our customers?

AMD – Return of the King?

Back in 2015, we quietly dropped AMD processor options from our workstations. At the time, I wrote a post explaining what had happened, and ended it with a hope that AMD would come back someday with a more competitive CPU. That did, in fact, happen – and over the last couple of years we have seen them surge back into our product line with a vengeance!
