System built as requested, even had a spare lead so I could re-use my own SSD disc
Delivered well wrapped and in great condition
Always built my own before, but this took all the stress away!
Great job and many thanks to the 3XS team

Rated 5 out of 5 by BNC123 Well put together, value and fantastic after-sales support
The time came for my old rig to hang it's boots up and retire. She just wasn't coping well with Advanced Warfare, as hard as she tried. As I usually build/spec an uber new rig every 5 years or so, I do my homework and take time to make a decision on where my hard earned Johnny Cash is spent. I specced up an overclocked and water cooled 5930 3XS system with a 980 GTX GC. I did the same spec system on competitors websites and Scan were VERY competitive to say the least. So I went with them. When rig II turned up (a day earlier than I had anticipated) I had a good look inside the case when I set her up and was very impressed with the build. Needless to say, Advanced Warfare is no longer a problem. My K/D ratio has gone through the roof. What I was most impressed with though, was the after sales service. I had an issue installing my OS onto the installed M.2 SSD ***PLEASE CHECK COMPATABILITY IF SPECCING YOUR MACHINE WITH AN M.2 DRIVE AND INTENDING TO USE IT AS A BOOT DEVICE*** it may not work! Check on the MB manufacturers website. I spoke with a nice chap called Robert (for about 2 hours!) who was, in no doubt, very capable and "techy". I decided to buy an additional SSD to use a boot device and installed my programs and apps on the M.2. Since then everything has worked like a dream. I really can't praise Scan enough. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dom12321 You do pay a premium, but it's a very professional, reliable service
Bought a high-end system, costing about £1600 total. If I had bought the parts and built it myself, I could have probably done it for £1.3 or £1.4k, so I was really hoping for a good quality build.
I wasn't disappointed! The PC was sent to be with all the documents, spare parts, etc from the components in the build, and the packaging was substantial enough to make me trust that it had been protected from any potential damage during transit.
Everything looks like it was put together perfectly well, they OCed the CPU to the amount that I wanted, cable management was good, and the included USB stick with some useful software on was a nice touch.
All-in-all, if you want a reliable, trustworthy build service, and are willing to pay a bit of a premium for peace of mind (ie to get someone else to build it and test everything works), I'd say go for Scan 3XS :).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sololobo Excellent System.
Delighted with my system from Scan, well built and well packed. I was kept up to date with progress of the build, and delivery was made on time and within the promised delivery window.
Special thanks go to the delivery driver, who was particularly helpful at the time of delivery.
Good to see that all the unused components from parts such as the cooling fan, PSU, etc. were included in the delivery, useful if making changes to the system in the future. The only exception to this was the GPU which was an OEM unit (I was not made aware of this at the time of ordering) so no manuals, driver discs or a DMI-VGA adapter were included.
However after a quick email to Scan, download links for manuals and drivers were provided, along with an adapter being sent in the post. Excellent Service.
After building my own computers for over 30 years this is the first time I have purchased a custom built system.
I'm delighted with my purchase from Scan and would be more than happy to buy from them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bc108 Great PC, excellent delivery and customer service
My new PC is working really well - very happy with build quality and performance.
Found the ordering process very easy - good balance of choice of products to tailor the PC and guidance on the website - which meant I felt confident that what I was choosing would work well together.
Scan kept me informed of progress all the way along the process - suggesting alternative parts when a couple were out of stock. Always felt I was dealing with experts who cared about getting my order right.
Had plenty of notice about the delivery - and all arrived in good condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldBritishMan Top end system
Works as stated, over the top for normal use but excellent for graphics. My poor choice of Graphics card lets it down through noise. Excellent waranty.
