“The most honest PC reseller I have every dealt with - and yes, I have dealt with a lot!”

“Buying from a “small” reseller on-line is always a risk - product may be sub-standard, broken etc etc and then the major challenge of getting easy support and help (or worst case- your money back); especially for an assembled desktop PC.

Whilst most resellers are prompt with comms before sales, you may struggle to hear from them after sales.

However, Quiet PC proved to me that there are still good and honest traders out there!!

I bought a mini PC for around £2k.

I had some queries before buying which they promptly answered (thanks Simon)

The product arrived, very well packed and within 24 hours of shipment. They kept me continuously updates about the build and delivery (thanks Ellen).

The product was of superb workmanship - all parts as promised, good quality and well tested (and with Ubuntu installed as I had requested)

I wanted to push the performance of the PC further, and thus, contacted them again. And the after-sales support team was AMAZING! (thanks Andy).

All-in-all I can say is that you can buy from Quiet PC without any worries and second thoughts. Their products are as advertised and to top it all the after sales support is amazing.

Good work guys - keep it up and all the best.”
