Puget Systems Professional Advice

William George (Puget Labs Technician)
William George (Puget Labs Technician) Says:
The Deluge is built as our gaming rig here at Puget Systems, but it is also a great option if you want a system that is a bit more showy than our others - without being gaudy. At the same time, a lot of our other systems could be configured to be great at gaming... so if you don't like how the Deluge looks, check out the Spirit, Serenity Pro, or Echo III for other solid options.
Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant)
Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
The Deluge is an excellent smaller form factor system. The Deluge offers multiple graphics cards, and uses a self contained, fully sealed, liquid-cooled CPU cooler. So you don't have to worry about liquid maintenance as you would with a full liquid cooled system.
Chris Stephens (Vice President - Operations)
Chris Stephens (Vice President - Operations) Says:
The Deluge is a fun, but classy system that keeps many of the aesthetics of the overall Puget Systems look, but allows you to show off what is under the hood.

Quote: ...it's easily the least gaudy looking gaming system I've ever tested and the components are always quality. The customized Antec P183 V3 enclosure is also much appreciated, guaranteed to keep the noise down better than other boutique builds might. If I weren't so invested in rolling my own, this would probably be the desktop I'd order for myself.

Puget Systems brings more to the table than any one of us can really achieve, though. I've had the privilege of looking at the extensive reliability testing they do on the components they use in their builds, and the fact is that very few of us have thermal imaging hardware required to get a really good idea of where the hot spots in our builds are. And then while I'm sure many of you own a dremel and wouldn't have any problem modding your cases, I don't. The Deluge Mini is a custom build of the highest order.

Quote: Remember when the term "customer service" actually had some validity to it? It almost seems like a pipe dream these days, but there are still a few companies that pride themselves on providing top quality products with equally as good customer service. One such company is Puget Systems, a custom computer shop based in Auburn, WA. that has been in the business for nearly 10 years and has seen significant growth as a result of their well-known attention to detail.

Quote: From the moment we placed our order on their website we felt like we were a part of the construction and testing of our own machine and not just because we were a member of the media getting special treatment. Puget offers this same level of interaction, including the near real-time monitoring, benchmarking and photos, to all of their customers whether they spend $6000 or $1000.

Quote: So what does this all mean? It means that the Deluge is a kickass gaming system. It scored 73 frames per second on Crysis, a notoriously hard gaming test. 73fps means that the visuals will be smooth and stutter-free. The Deluge also scored 73 frames per second on the World of Conflict gaming test. These are pretty decent scores. The system also aced our multimedia tests.

Quote: Puget Systems takes the opposite approach, focusing on exceptional customer service and providing only the highest quality components. If you want a high-performance computer and you need advice on the subject, Puget Systems looks like a very good choice, and they are more than willing to discuss your particular needs with you at length to make sure that you get the exact system you want/need.

"Trying to find a legitimate workstation that will handle Octane was a nightmare. After years on Mac, I looked at the iMac Pro and winced at the specs and the ridiculous price. No NVIDIA, over $12K for an adequate machine? After days looking, I found Puget Systems.

I am so glad I did. After making the call, Oscar was GREAT. I highly recommend Puget Systems and will never shop anywhere else. From the first call, I was hooked. The integrity, value and quality this company offers is exemplary.

Here’s a few bullet points on what makes Puget Systems easily the best place to go for custom workstations:

• They were nice. No talking over your head, no tech-nerd attitude. Just helpful and down to earth.
• They listen. They helped me transition from Mac to PC with little to no trouble and were very helpful with follow-up questions.
• They diagnose what you’ll need without trying to up-sell
• They have the best technology in stock, usually
• The wait time was minimal, two weeks from phone call to up and running in my case
• There’s a step-by-step progress report/checklist as your system is being made complete with what’s being done and who is doing it
• Most important, the system was EASY to set up
• AND it’s blazing fast
• AND the price was by far the best out there. In fact, they saved me money by helping me direct my budget toward the components that were most helpful for the applications I was using.
• They followed up to ensure everything is working properly
• Finally, the beards at PS are as impressive as the render times on my workstation

TL;DR Puget Systems should give other companies lessons in customer service, value and quality. I’m a fan and will be ordering from them again soon."

"There are no words to express the level of comfort and satisfaction having being a customer of Puget systems. The timely process from the confirmation of the order to the building of the machine and being informed at every stage. Excellent and knowledgeable support staff who are able to tailor the system specs to my specific need. The after sales support, even after two years of purchase they want to make sure every thing is ok with you. My system runs oil-smooth and is very silent for a big machine.Thank you Puget, you have a customer for life!"

"I've been using custom built systems for sound and video editing for almost 10 years. This is my first purchase from Puget. The ordering process was simple and smooth and the sales technician was very knowledgeable. The system arrived on time and was well packaged. I've plugged it in and two things are apparent:
- it's wicked fast!
- it's insanely quiet!

Looking forward to working on this new system. Thank you Puget!"

"I've now bought two computers from Puget Systems and have no intention of going anywhere else. I used to build my own computers to meet my needs but have found the staff here to be so knowledgeable about each piece of equipment and what I actually need, that I trust them more than myself.
On my last purchase they talked me out of buying a more powerful PC. They assessed my needs and were able to help me identify what equipment would give me the best system to meet my particular needs, even though it meant I didn't spend as much with them. They also build these things really well. I don't think I've had a single hardware issue with the computers I've purchased from them. They also prepare them for me so that they are almost completely silent. I love it!

Even a couple of years after I put one of their computers into service they are ready to help and troubleshoot if problems arise.This is how I wish all companies were run. They have won my respect and have made me a very happy customer. Thank you Puget Systems!"

"Puget Systems has been an incredible experience. The best way to describe how I felt when I purchased my computer, was as if a company was formed just to build a personal computer for me. The way Puget Systems reach out to their customers on a personal level is outstanding. The step-by-step build process and updates left me not only excited, but kept me in the loop to ask any questions. I have recommended this place to friends and family and will continue to do so."

"Absolutely unbelievable experience! Viewing the whole assembly process and knowing who participated in assembly and testing is awesome. The first time in many years of buying and using computers I was able to see the results of the tests and performance benchmarks. The help provided by your sales and service teams was great. By the way, your website actually works and this also was a brand new experience for me. So to make a long story short you guys are the best and I would recommend Puget Systems to anybody who needs a new computer."

"I was in need of a powerful Windows machine, but one that was also quiet. I started going down the "build your own" route, but stumbled upon Puget Systems during my research, and was impressed with how readily they answered my questions and their willingness to review a build that would meet my needs. I took the plunge and ordered from them, and could not be happier that I did. This is the best P.C. that I've ever had the pleasure of working on. And it is *sooo* quiet! (My monitor literally makes more noise). I'll definitely be looking to Puget Systems for any future machines!"

"I have purchased many computers, both for myself and for companies that I worked for. I have also built a few computers with parts from Fry's and other places. The experience I had with Puget Systems was so far above and beyond my previous experience it is like Puget Systems is in another league.
My experience starting with initial contact with Jeff Stubbers, all the way to final delivery of the system exceeded all my hopes. The quality of service was amazing. As I ordered the system, Jeff Stubbers helped me to optimize my order and I settled on a Spirit computer with some components selected based upon my planned use. After I placed the order, I had a few more questions, which Jeff Stubbers answered quickly via e-mail. I planned to add a 1TB HD and an SSD to the system after I received it, and Jeff gave me good support for that approach by explaining exactly how the drive trays would be configured in the Spirit Computer
The Spirit computer that I received was excellent. Clearly it was made with care with the best components. I am very impressed with the quality of the entire system. In addition, I received all the test reports and Bios images necessary to confirm that everything was working well and I could roll the system back to starting conditions if necessary.
I highly recommend Puget Systems for any PC purchase anyone is considering."

"I looked at Puget Systems years ago and was impressed by them and finally decided it was time to get a computer specifically tailored to my needs. They offered suggestions, and consistently proved helpful in my decision process. The build was fun to watch as their site showed all the progress from beginning to end with great detail. It shipped great, packed amazingly well. Now that I've used it, its performance has been stellar and now I am spoiled! Come the time I want another computer, I will go with Puget again. Highly recommended."

"Absolutely stellar experience! Great knowledgeable staff and excellent customer service. Each step of the internal process is inputted into a tracking system that is shared with the client - so I know the exact status and condition of my purchased product. I love seeing that level of thoughtful organization & process. I have yet to receive my workstation, but I am so blown away by the service that I needed to leave a review!"
