Everyone wants the perfect PC, including myself, so after long hard debating I decided to buy a top of the range machine from Time. Now this certainly wasn’t cheap and I purchased it over a four year period!. As I was getting it over this time I was advised to take out an extended warranty, as the pushy sales woman told me" you don’t want to be paying for 4 years and end up spending more on repairs do you?". At the time this made sense to me as she quoted me that it would only work out at £2 per week and this didn’t seem a lot more really. However once I received my little piece of paper the amount £432 jumped out ... Read the complete review

Just thought I'd post this here for those considering purchasing a new PC in Ireland/UK - hopefully others won't make the same mistake we made. We ordered a Time Computers laptop from their store in Dublin nine weeks ago. The laptop seemed technically good, unfortunately we were unaware of Time's terrible customer service record. We paid a total of about E1800 for one of their AMD models - E170 cash and the balance on Mastercard. Initially, after 10 days, we rang asking when the laptop would be delivered. They couldn't tell us, but on 5 occasions promised to get back to us. They didn't. Then we try to ring only to find that the ... Read the complete review

When I bought mine I was sure I was getting the best possible deal, with a CD/RW, Camera, printer and Scanner I thought it was the perfect package for me. And I was feeling really good untill I got it home. Then I found out how unstable it was. It has been constantly seizing up and crashing since then. I took it to be fixed (not by time cos I couldn't afford their £300 extra for a warranty) and the result was that the peripherals in the computer where not compatable with the AMD processer making it unstable. The only way to fix it was with a new processor (£200 and up!). Now, I realise that there is a difference between cheap and value for money. Read the complete review

When I bought my Athlon 700 it was very good value to buy it from Time. The company charges about £40 for delivery which seems a bit extortionate and there was a small delay but the quality of the machine is excellent. I haven't had to test out the warranty so far (touch wood) but from what I've heard the customer service isn't quite as good. I would recommend Time either for a complete beginner or for someone that really knows what they're doing and knows how to fix problems. The PCs perfom well and are of very high specification in most areas. From my experience they are a very good company. Read the complete review

Having bought a Time Computer 3 years ago, I have had nothing but grief. Main complaints: 1. Their customer services is apauling (the customer services supervisor put the phone down on me). Under no circumstances should you buy the aftersales warranty - you might as well burn your money and spend several hours doing something you really hate to have the same effect as trying to deal with their aftersales team. 2. The equipment is very poor value for money. Their PCs are poorly built and use the very cheapest parts so that they are likely to cause problems. My PC became faulty very soon after purchase, and I had a series of very ... Read the complete review
