Alienware is a website that sells high-powered gaming Desktops and Laptops. This is a review for the website, and that is mainly what I will talk about, as I don't really want to stray into talking about the computers themselves as many other reviews have done, although I will outline briefly the...

Awful customer service, stay away!

Soon after I had received the computer, it was unstable in many ways, Alienware's "online" technician encouraged me to"keep going, leave the computer on, it's problems will fizzle out" and my computer needed to do this as it was new, he also advised me not to change anything on my computer to...

Great Looks

To many faults

I'd been dying to get my hands of an Alienware PC for over year and eventually I splash out the cash for the new shape case in Feb04, it was a expensive but worth it. Alienware have a quality control checklist that they update for you so you can check the status of your system, although its not...

Fast service, excellent computer, long lasting

Not for the beginner

I spent many weeks searching for components to build my own PC. Then i decided that i shall simply find someone to do it for me however it was very difficult to find a company to meet my specific needs. I spent time on the DELL, Savrow, PC world ect sites and i found pretty much the same thing...

Easy Ordering

Everything Else

I recently purchased an Aurora system from Alienware costing roughly £2400. Expensive, but their reputation was a major factor in my decision to purchase from this company. The price included what we thought would be useful essentials such as AlienAutopsy, which is said to be an error reporting...

“Alienware's Customer Focus”

published 14/12/2004

Optimized Computer. Great Customer Service.

Long wait

It would appear that Oct and November are actually the worst times to order technology. New technological advances are rushed to market in those 8 weeks before Christmas, everyone trying to cash in on the Holiday spending fever. Not knowing this, I ordered my computer at the beginning of October...

“Don't believe the hype!”

None

All too many

I hope you avoid my experience. I can only say buy anything but Alienware! For the record, I bought the top of the line Aurora m9700 model, with almost all available upgrades, about $3800. ORDER: First, my order was never processed because a $20 external USB card reader was out of stock. Customer...

Ordering -- not an easy task. I was desperate to throw £950 at Alienware to buy a notebook, but I was tripped up by the ordering system more than once. No mechanism to let the bank know the purchase is kosher, so the bank then doesn't let the transaction go thru. Do it's up to you to phone the...

I bought my alienware around two months ago now, and I have not had a single problem with it. The reason I waited this long to post this review is that I heard alot of people say that something went wrong with theirs, but nothing has gone wrong with mine. Overall, the computer is very reliable...

“Alienware M17”

Gorgeous look, great speed

Its big but powerfull

I have read a lot of negative reviews about Alienware myself. I too feel I have to set the record straight. I bought a laptop from Alienware, and it works like a dream. No faults, no noise, no extreme heat, nothing of the sort. It is the fastest machine I have ever worked on... It was built to my...

“Alienware Computers”

published 22/09/2003

Fast Reliable Good Quality Components

Largely Unknown In the Uk

The reason why I heard about these systems initially is through an online game I play. The advantage these computers have is they are fast they use top quality components and they are smart looking. This is just the basic overview I have also talked with these gamers who have used these systems...

I bought an alienware area51 m5550i R3 around 2 years ago for £1350 and it was working fine till the warranty run out. Ever since then this machine has been nothing but trouble. The main problem is that once your warranty runs out alienware don't stock replacement parts for out of date systems...

Over priced and lasted two years. That's 1000 sterling a year. Technical support good. I used it every few months with some problem or another. The laptop case split, which after advising Alienware now owned by Dell, was a latent defect, they did replace the lid, although damaged the screen...
