Puget Computer Reviewed at SilentPCReview.com

Posted on June 29, 2006 by Jon Bach


This month, Puget sent a quiet core-duo system to SilentPCReview.com for them to review. We wanted to demonstrate that a ultra-quiet computer does not have to be expensive and complicated. What did they think of it?

Once again, Puget Custom Computers has delivered an exceptionally quiet system - this time at a more reasonable price. As shipped, the system is as quiet as any system we've built on our own, and probably faster. There's not much here to complain about, but since it is an independent review, we feel compelled to make an effort. The only major omission that we found was that SpeedStep was disabled by default. Preinstalling and configuring Nero DriveSpeed would have been nice too, but that costs extra money, so it's not really a complaint.

Best of all, unlike the system we reviewed previously, you can actually buy this one - or close enough. Puget offers the complete system - without the solid state drive - for about US$1800. If you ask nicely, they can add that as well... if you can afford an extra US$550.

Even if you don't want the exact system reviewed here, the system that Puget built for us makes a statement: Puget is capable and willing to produce systems that are as quiet as any custom-built system. If you're willing to work with them (and the company prides itself on the level of interaction between its customers and the people who actually build the systems), it is possible to buy a system that is unique and quiet without getting your hands dirty. During the buying process, Puget will review the options you've chosen, communicate suggestions, and accept special requests. If you want a system like the one in this review, Puget will be happy to make it for you. If you want to tweak it for your own requirements, they will accommodate those just as happily.
