Puget Systems Professional Advice

Jon Bach (President)
Jon Bach (President) Says:
It is very handy that you can VESA mount this PC to the back of a monitor. If you need an internal optical drive or a more powerful CPU, then you should look at the slightly larger Echo II.
Wilson Chau (Customer Service Lead)
Wilson Chau (Customer Service Lead) Says:
I use the Echo I for my HTPC system at home. Awesome for streaming Netflix, Amazon Prime, Youtube, watching downloaded video, and surfing the Net. I'd look at the Echo II if you need a little more power and a DVD/Blu-ray drive.
Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant)
Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
This Puget Echo is our smallest system. This system does not come with space for a built-in optical drive. If you do choose an optical drive on the customize page, it's important to note that it is an external USB optical drive.
Chris Stephens (Vice President - Operations)
Chris Stephens (Vice President - Operations) Says:
The Echo I is an excellent system for those situations where you want the computer to get out of the way. You can mount this system to the back of any monitor with a VESA mount, which many do. If you need a DVD or Blu-Ray drive, go for Echo II. But first consider, when was the last time you used an optical drive?

Quote: Puget Systems is a boutique PC builder that provides documentation for every step of its quality control. For example, Puget's Quality Control Sheet lists six categories of checkpoints, most with around 10 tests under each category. Puget lists the employee who completed the check, the date it was performed, and the time the test was certified. Puget also goes a step beyond by providing you with the benchmark and performance tests, so you can be assured that the computer meets the expected performance.

Quote: The Puget Systems Echo I is a virtually silent small form factor home theater solution. The sleek Antec case pairs nicely with most home theater equipment. The system is well ventilated to keep its components cool. It easily handles 1080P video output as well as high def audio. The low power Atom processor uses approximately 35 W meaning the system left running uses less energy than most light bulbs.

Quote: Lots of folks have been asking about Nvidia's Ion, essentially a GPU for the Intel's low power Atom CPU. The folks over at Puget Systems were kind enough to loan us one of their Echo I HTPC boxes with a Blu-ray drive inside... watch the video to find out it did with 1080p video!

Quote: I was amazed by this! This thing has tremendous power. It can play back 1080p files, perfectly. It can decompress .rar files quickly. I thought this was going to take forever. Flawless playback. Firefox 3.5 runs perfectly, quickly, beautifully. 7.1 surround, HDMI in the back runs perfect.

"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."

"This has been my best computer buying experience since my first computer - a Tandy 1000. I wanted a quality product to my specs without the extra junk that the big names put in their systems. Puget delivered in spades. Everything is quality and I know that the team cared about doing their best on my computer. It's rare to find people that will put their names and faces on their products, but Puget's team does. Their customer service is outstanding - taking the time to explain things as if they were just offering some friendly advice to their neighbor. I will never buy another desktop from another builder. Puget has made me a customer for life."

"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."

"Puget Systems is a group of currently practicing experts in the field of applied high performance computing. I shopped around with other vendors while developing an invoice with Puget, but no one came close. Puget Systems had Ph.D level computer scientists who had used exactly the software I wanted to run on my computer, took the time to explain the latest in hardware to me, and was able to provide me with a performance benchmark with that software on a configuration very similar to the one I ordered. I like their spirit and they are technically excellent."

"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."
