I purchased my Tiny PC package new in 2002 and in all fairness it has delivered a reasonable degree of reliability. Recently I have just had a new hard drive installed (£37) and it had had multiple virus invasions until I got the hang of virus check software which has solved the problem (not the PCs fault I must point out). The attached printer (A HP 3325 has been fine) and the memory quite decent to cope with games and all the other aspects of home computing (Word is used a lot). This has been a family computer so has been used by 3 teenagers and 2 parents regularly. One of its main uses is to get on to the world wide web abd it has performed well in this area; I now have a wi - fi fitted which works well. Its sad that the Tiny (and Time ) Company has now gone bust, as the help line was reasonably helpful. I would purchase one, especially if there was a good spec second hand one on the market. Components seem reasonable and reliability fine generally. Overall a fair system for the family user. Not one for the high end gamer or high demand user.

I hate time and tiny like anything So d not get one if you are looking for a computer
I was aware of Tiny's reputation in the computer industry before I bought this PC, but it looked a good deal and so I parted with my cash. Big mistake. From the minute it arrived it was one disaster after another. First it wouldn't even switch on (dodgy power conector). Then after a couple of months it started making noises like a lawnmower; dodgy fan. The computer often 'overheats' and turns itself off, refusing to turn back on for hours. Oh and the modem is rubbish as well. The Tiny customer helpline is well useless. You are patronised about your ability with computers then cut off after fifteen minutes whether the problem is resolved or not. Yes this is quite a powerful machine, but the speakers are awful, the printer below average and the monitor dire. Take my advice; buy from Evesham.com!
I have recently enroled on an MCSE course and found myself in need of a computer. I currently have a Sony VAIO laptop which is an excellent laptop but found myself in need of a desktop computer. Reluctantly I shopped around the high street stores due to the fact I needed to buy a computer on finance. This eventually led me to Tiny. I gave the salesman a list of requirements of the PC I wanted and he suggested the Entertainment Studio Power which came with a FUJI Digital Camera. My first question being very wary after hearing rumours of high street stores using cheap parts was to enquire about the graphics card. I asked if it was integrated onto the motherboard or was it a separate unit as the integrated model would not be suitable for my needs. The salesman assured me it was a separate card and I purchased the system with a few upgrades (including a magnificent 19" monitor) which totaled £1900. It wasn't until about 3 weeks later that I discovered my unit contained an Intel 810E chipset which basically is a budget chipset intergrated onto the motherboard: bottom line the nice jolly salesman LIED. Unfortunately due to the fact the machine was purchased on finance I am now stuck with it.(I can not fault the machine except for the fact that it needed better manuals and is not what I wanted.) I called Customer services and after a 45 minute wait I finally spoke to a young lady who took all the details and said she would pass it onto a manager who would call me that afternoon. 1 week later still no call so I spent another half hour this morning waiting to get through to customer services to find out if the manager had been struck dead just before calling me (which was aboiut the only excuse I would accept!). The person at the other end apologised deeply and said somebody would call me tomorrow. I will ammend this opinion to let you know the results. I would not recommend Tiny Computers to anyone, the computers appear to be made using th
e cheapest components possible and to take the machine apart you have to remove the drive bays first! Their customer service is appaling and their salespeople are obviously on such low salaries they have to lie to customers to make sales. If anybody else has had a similar experience please post your views so we can let everybody know just how bad Tiny are.
