Puget Systems Professional Advice

Jon Bach (President)
Jon Bach (President) Says:
This is a great little PC. It is fairly quiet, very powerful, and allows for full size video cards. We take these to local LAN gaming events, and I can tell you with first-hand experience that their size makes them very easy to pick up and move around.
Jeff Stubbers (Mr. Customer Service)
Jeff Stubbers (Mr. Customer Service) Says:
The Puget Echo Pro is a nice combination of small form factor and performance. This configuration allows the use of higher-end graphics cards, so if you plan to run any programs that are more graphically demanding, such as gaming, etc., but also would like a smaller case, this is a nice choice. This system can be used in vertical or horizontal orientation. If you plan to use in the horizontal orientation, just let us know so we can setup the feet appropriately for you.

Christopher Crader (Customer Support) Says:
I used one of these when we went down to PDX LAN a while back. I absolutely loved it. It was snappier than my home gaming system and even quieter. They're easy to move around and when stood upright, they take up very little space. There's not going to be much, if any, room for adding extra expansion cards beyond the video card, but if you're looking for something that'll run high-end graphics in small form factor, this is a great option.

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.

"I received my Genesis I a few weeks ago and wanted to use it for a while before posting a review. Although it isn\'t touted as their quiet system, it is extremely quiet. I am one of those people that is really picky about system noise and this system is just super quiet. This is also the fastest system I have ever owned, it is also the most expensive but it does contain a lot of the latest technology. I got tired of getting systems that I couldn\'t configure to my needs, or that came with a bunch of software that I didn\'t want. I did a lot of research online about what company could provide me with a system that would fit my needs. Those needs being fast, quiet, and reliable. I am using it primarily for video and photo editing.

The box that it came in was huge, but I\'d rather have a huge box than a damaged one. I also liked that as soon as I opened it, I immediately saw instructions on how to proceed with the rest of the unboxing. Little things that help.

Inside is a binder full of helpful information that is a really nice touch too.

During my agonizing decision making process, I exchanged several e-mails with the company asking questions and getting feedback. This was also very helpful in making my decision.

So far I am very happy with my purchase."

"I just received my Puget System PC today. I must say that from start to finish it has been an incredible experience. Never have I experienced such top notch customer service! Emails are answered promptly. The meticulous detail involved in the builds are impressive. I had a lot of customization requirements and all was accomplished without difficulty. I had a previous frustrating experience with another large PC builder and while they tried to do the best they could I ran into a lot of difficulties and the lack of communication was a major issue. No problems like that here. I feel that if I do run into problems I can easily get the answer from Puget Systems and have full confidence in them. They really make you feel special and the transparency with giving you all the details of the build as its happening as well as pictures of the bios and of your system with thermal imaging etc is quite impressive. Also, the system is so quiet. I am thoroughly impressed with the company and Jeff Stubbers for all his help. I am a customer for life!

"Puget systems made the process of purchasing a system very easy! I was looking into purchasing my first computer system. I am not very savy with all the components that go into a great system, but Puget walked me through it every step of the way. In particular, I worked with their representative Jeremy. I told him exactly what I wanted out of the system, as well as my budget. He came back with a few suggestions on what would best fit my needs. There was not any pressure at all throughout this process. I had every question and concern answered confidently. I will definitely go back to them for any computer needs in the future!"

"My experience with Puget Systems has been the best in about 35 years of buying or building personal computers. Configuring a system on the web site was easy using the extensive information and expert recommendations for each component. The smart system designs optimize power, sound, and heat management. The detailed status updates as my system was being built was quite interesting--I got to virtually look over the shoulder as the build, configuration, test, and burn-in steps proceeded. All performance test results are available for viewing. My very well-packaged Serenity system arrived in perfect condition and powered up off the fast SSD drive (a first for me). It took less than a day to migrate 50,000 images and a few dozen applications and everything is working perfectly and quietly. I confidently recommend Puget Systems to anyone looking for a custom system in this class."

"Not being a "computer person", I was somewhat intimidated when it was time for me to replace my old, (2003), dinosaur of a computer. I had very specific needs, and thought a "custom" computer would be the way to go, but where to go? I "googled up" "custom computers", and started researching. When I came across "Puget Systems", I was really impressed with their "mission statement", so much to the point that I decided to to a chance with them, but, nevertheless, I knew anybody could "talk the talk". Well, to make a long story short, not only did "Puget Systems" "talk the talk", they absolutely "walked the walk"! They stepped me through the process, helping me to settle in on exactly what I needed, nothing more, nothing less. In dealing with them, (Puget Systems), I never once felt as though I were on an island, they were always an "E"-mail, or phone call away, with answers to any of my dumb, (remember, I said I was not a computer person), questions, and concerns, from the beginning to the end! They even had the decency to check up on me after my account was closed, just to make sure everything was still to my satisfaction, (it was), ... who does that? To anyone looking to get away from the "one size fits all" paradigm of the major chain stores, and get a truly custom, (and affordable), computer tailored for your specific needs, I can wholeheartedly recommend you go with my good buddies at "Puget Systems"!"

"When I first saw my new Puget next to my other computer it looked like a little guy sitting next to a weight lifter, what a unit. This is just the first couple of hours working with the Spirit and it is going well, extremely fast and soooo quite. This whole experience with Puget has been nothing short of excellent, right from talking to Wilson to get the build correct, to the status updates, to the professional binder that comes with the computer, to the excellent shipping and packaging to protect the computer during shipping. Excellent job!!!"

"This experience has been one of the best buying experiences I have ever had for anything! I make natural history documentaries and needed a computer that can handle the editing on Premiere Pro with large file sizes. The Puget Systems team lead me through the process with an assured hand. They answered my questions and I was very confident in their guidance. The computer arrived a few days ago and it is just as they described. Overall, I love the Puget System team and philosophy."

"Highly recommended! In my experience, Puget Systems has some of the best, perhaps THE best, customer service I have ever encountered in any industry. Every interaction I've had with them has resulted in total satisfaction. From helping select the perfect configuration, to helping out when a particular component was not the best choice, to technical service almost two year later, they have never disappointed me."

"In my search for a highly capable PC, I'd decided to look into custom-built options. Searching the web, I found Puget Systems, and was immediately impressed by both their website, and the options they offered. The simple, intuitive site made it easy to arrive at a unit that was custom designed for my needs. What was most impressive was their staff...super responsive, helping with any and all questions. I felt like I'd just made new friends. The whole experience was so well thought through, it gave me great confidence in the investment I was making...as I have no doubt they put as much care into the build as they obviously did in everything else! Great experience, I will (and have) recommended them to anyone who'll listen!"

"I am so amazed by this company. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted and I was able to talk to someone who guided me in the exact computer that I needed. Then after I ordered it, their web site kept me updated to exactly what they were doing during the building stages, and through it all. It didn't take more than just a few business days to have the computer built. Then when they shipped it, it arrived in just 24 hrs. It was tightly package, and had no damage. It is sharp looking and works amazing. I am so excited to get to know my new system. I just got it today in the mail, and it is put together here in america. Thank you to Puget Custom Computers!"
