I placed my order on the fourteenth of October, and I did recieve a message telling me that they have processed my order.  But since then, nothing...My order seems to be stuck in the "pre-inventory" phase..  I have read alot of these great reviews on here (especially concerning their customer service policies), and i am wondering if anyone else has run into this delay, or the silence surrounding it.. It is a high-end system and I would have thought that I would be informed of any major delays or troubles.  I hope this isn't necessarily indicative of future service from Digital Storm.

heh, mine is still in stage #1 but that is good, because I know they are taking there time and it will be good.  I would have started to wonder if it was done within 2 weeks, thinking eeeeee mabey the wiring or something will go wrong.  Good things come to those that are patient I always say. 
  This also gives me time to heal up my back and put my desk together. :)

Yah! Words to live by...   A little patience goes a long way.  Just slapping together a nice gaming system is probably not a good itdea...  I got an email from DSO informing me that they are experiencing a large volume of new orders.. this I see as a GOOD SIGN..  word must be getting 'round.. There r so many sweet new games coming out right now, I'll probably get busy rounding some of those up while I'm waiting..

Confused I just went into voodooPC, for an insane system, after I gutted a lot of useless crap out to lower the cost, MY GOD! there computers are so overly priced, I swear they are on some kind of dope.  I noticed something though, did they make a motherboard with intel?

After I noticed this, one thing came to mind "DigitalStorm Intel SLI motherboard".  Have you guys every thought about making your own cases?  anyways, this was the first place I went through, I am so glade I didn't go through with this company.  I mean seriously, for pete sakes, $10k for the same exact thing I got here.  I must be missing something or they are like $6,000 overpriced when compared to DSO.
 
or better yet, DigitalStorm + nVidia motherboard LOL
 
 
I don't mean to bash on another company but there "sayings" for when trying to sell something is "estupido"  "your system will perform better then any other machine, even if the other machine uses all the same parts".  I mean seriously now, come on.  Sorry I have to vent, as I am in a crabby mood right now and am just rev'n up hardcore.  How the Censored can another machine that uses the same of everything they use possibly perform crappier?   Do people actually fall for that "crump".Angry

I noticed the same thing when I visited Voodo. I was really high on them and was actually considering buying one of those nearly 10K beasts. Then, I started to really look around, because I just felt like something just wasn't right about the cost when I compared the components with newegg.com prices. So I looked at Velocity, ibuypwer, cyber and a few others. I found a world of hurt out there. The junk in was being pushed by these sites other than Voodo. Lots of AMD based models with garish cases. The websites were really hard to navigate and they had so many crummy systems with crap based builds. For a while I thought that I had no choice but to go with Dell. I was thinking maybe HP but I hate their machines historiclally as much as I hated their buddy Compact. Gateway was just another Dell. I tried to configure a Dell too and found that it was overpriced for good components and they kept pushing things that could not be upgraded. Further, I just loathe Dell ccustomer service (the only reason for cost reduction).

Then, I found some articles on Digital Storm. I was shocked. No garish cases, well maybe one, the Twister lite. But even that wasn't too bad. And the components: top quality choices with no garabage being pushed first.

And no teaser financing and no teaser models. DS is selling quality machines at reasonable prices.

And turnaround time, check out the time it takes these other companies to give you a true custom build right now. You will pay and arm and a leg and it won't ship until December. No kidding.

So why choose Digital Storm Online? Quality, value and exceptional customer service. And no crap being pushed on the unsuspecting and unknowledgeable customer. You should see the terrible video cards they are bundling with builds they call high end gaming machines at these places it is almost criminal to lead some parent, kid or person to plunk down $1200 to $1400 for machine that will hardly play anything except what can be found in the bargain bin.

I challenge anyone to find a better machine, better value and better service anywhere.

I think that all I can truly say is that if you're worried about good customer service then keep DSO in mind.

I was in a car accident this weekend and my insurance company is going to take 3-4 weeks to get me the money for the repairs for my car. But the shop where my car is being fixed won't release my car until I pay the bill and as my credit card is at a 20% interest rate I'd rather not use it.
 
Originally I received my order in late September but had to send it right back due to a faulty hardrive, and then received it again just about a week and a half ago DSO is still letting me return it without charging the 15% restocking fee and I'm only out for the cost of shipping. Which is the best possible outcome for the predicament I'm in since a car to get to work is more important than gaming.
 
I'm positive that as soon as I get my funds in order I will be placing another order based on the customer service I received and how amazing the PC I'm returning is.
 
Thank you DSO...

You need to pick DSO, because they never make their entry and midrange customer *feel* like entry level or midrange customers. The system I ordered is by no means "highend" for a custom built machine. Never once did I feel like I, or my business didn't matter.
 
I don't know how many reading this are accustomed to being blown off or followed around like a suspected thief in a brick and morter store. I'm sure others that get dirty, or have to sweat a bit at work can relate. The point I'm making, is you can get used to being treated poorly by businesses, for whatever reason. It was a nice change of pace to be treated with attentive professionalism, and respect.
 
In a world where everyone jumps on the price bandwagon in an attempt to get your business with claims of offering the lowest price and beating any competitor (how can a dozen businesses or more all selling the same items *all* have the "lowest price"?), it's nice to deal with a company that keeps the price in the same competitive area as the shops that focus only on price, yet makes it's focus on quality, and on the customer.
 
I may not have spent a fortune on my system, but DSO made me feel like I had. Every question I had was expertly answered. Every change or issue allong the way was adressed with professionalism and courtesy. As for value, having priced out what I bought from Digital Storm with other shops that offer similar levels of build quality, I sleep well knowing that I paid 20% less than the next closest competition for my configuration.
 
You only need to go with this company if you want to be treated well, recieve a top quality product, and don't want to overpay for your system. For people that don't care about these things, the internet is filled with alternatives.

Why should you chose Digital Storm... I asked myself that question many times over when it was time for me to get a new computer. Having built systems for 10 years now, I have (IMO) a good knowledge of what it takes to put together a good computer. I started looking around at "boutique" builders because my last build was a tough one and started seeing prices from companies comparable to do it yourself prices.

I looked around at just about all of them. DS caught my attention firstly with their prices, but then quickly saw their true strong points... quality and service. Their service alone is simply put, the best I have ever seen. Whether you are calling (and talking to a real person), emailing, or posting on their forums... it shows a level of service that just isn't there with ANY other company.

How often do you know BY NAME the employees that work for a company in this industry? Its unheard of. I honestly don't know how they do it... for a computer company that has a such a broad national customer base to provide a level of personal service like you lived in a small town... amazing

They obviously take great pride in their work. Its seen in every PC they ship out. A customer mentioned that the wiring in his wasn't hidden as well as he thought it would be and posted pics... DS responded by having it sent back to "do it right".

In such a hard industry to please everyone because of so many variables that come with computers, DS does something that almost seems impossible and aims to please EVERY one of their customers... and they do one hell of a job with it.

I was made a believer... and now a lot of my friends just like myself, are looking at getting a DS system now... if a "boutique" builder can convert a jaded old geek like me, you will be in good hands.

No, you do not need a 1000W PSU to run SLI ultras. Depending on the rest of your setup, the minimum is 500W and the recommended is 750W.

32 bit vs 64 bit is matter of opinion.

 I fought my dee eee double toothpicks 710 for several months from drivers to video cards and everything in between, including an upgrade to the 720 atx motherboard from a btx ( enthusiast user upgradability indeed !! ). I was ready for a change when I came across a link for gaming computers in a nvidia newsletter and clicked on it. There were links to several builders and I went on each to see what I could configure.
   All were either overpriced or didn't offer all the options I was looking for. I finally came to Digital Storm and they had all the options I was looking for and at a cheaper price than the others . Plus a three year warranty that I didn't have to pay out of the nose for, and a purty paint job to boot.
  I then clicked on the community link and read what others were saying about their computers. I was astounded to see people that worked for the company actually talking to customers and solving their problems on the forums ( what a concept )
 Needless to say, I ordered one before the day was out. Then I got a call from digital storm ( uh oh, whats the problem ), but it was just a call to say they recieved my order and asked if I had any questions .
  Now instead of that other company, I now recommend Digital Storm to anybody who asks ( actually to anyone who doesn't ask too ).

My computer is in Stage 1, and I can't wait!
 
Everyone at DS has been so helpfull and nice, I would recommend DS just for that alone.  When you add an outstanding product, you just can't beat DS.  Even with the additional cost to ship it to Alaska.
 
Don't think twice, go DS.  Tongue

Agreed 100% - I am in Stage 1 as well, and went with a build that was tweaked based on same great advice from Alex and others that frequent these boards.  Being local, they are even letting me come down to pick it up (which gets it in my hands even faster, and doesn't give UPS a chance to give it few wacks before dropping it on my doorstep).  Oh, and poor Dave has tolerated my constant (nub) questions with great patience, even after I made the order - thanks Dave Clap!
 
The experience has been really great so far, and I have been singing DS' praises to everyone that will listen.  To be honest, I don't expect that to change!

i'm currently i'n stage 1 and I can say up front to anyone that for customer service I reccomend DS whole heartedly. They are a great group of guys with high standards. No one is perfect but if DS has an unsatisfied customer, you can feel safe to know that they WILL fix it. I respect that greatly and see DS as becoming the next big custom rig company out there if they keep it up. Im in stage 1 and I have an ultimate faith in my rig.. if something goes wrong, my faith will still be in their customer service and satisfaction =]

I just received notice my DS system was picked up by DHL at close of business last night.  When I take into consideration that 2 holidays were between the time my order was confirmed and shipped, 12 work days was the time it took DS to complete my order.  Not bad eh??
 
Now why DHL needed to ship my system from Cali. and then to OH bogles my mind, seeing as I live in Alaska?  Called DHL and they confirmed the system was really being sent to AK, not AL.  LOL  We'll see, as it's due to arrive tomorrow.
 
Can't wait, just like a kid with new toy, rather than an old dude with a new toy. 
 
Thanks DS....................and now you folks that haven't ordered your DS system know why you should choose DS!!!

You lucky dog, bull!
 
They are rebuilding mine again.
 
At least they have been helpful to me over the phone and Alex promply answers every private message I send him with quality answers.
 
Keep us posted bull.  I want to know how it works.

Well guys my DS rig has been picked up by UPS I guess and now it's estimated arrival time is 11/29/07 (Thursday) so I'm way excited haha

My experience with DS has been great! I guess they didn't encounter any problems with it because I ordered only like 2 weeks ago. I received updates by email about what stage my computer was in and got to talk to the engineers and stuff about the computer and any questions I had. It really made me feel like I was ordering a computer from real people that cared about sending out a quality product.

Anyway, like I said, my computer is scheduled to arrive on Thursday so I'll give you my impressions once I get it.

My system shipped today too, although my tracking number doesn't seem to be working yet. My system, like Nomad's, I think, is relatively straight forward, which probably contributed to the decent turn around. I ordered the system on a Sunday, two weeks ago, so basically 10 working days ago.
 
Hopefully once the tracking number updates I can see when it'll make the cross state trip (San Jose to Orange County). I'll post the review of my modest system (<$1500) when I get it!

You'll think tame, if you take up my offer to go ride dirt bikes with me up here in Alaska.   All you gotta do is show up.................the rest is on me.  Big%20smile    Gotta ride a KTM however.

Hahahaha
Yeah I understand man. It's gotta be tough to see other peoples' comps getting shipped while yours is being rebuilt. But try to remember that DS is doing it so that you have a flawless machine Wink

But yeah I'll definitely come back here and post about my experience i.e. The condition that the box is in after being shipped by UPS (I'm nervous cuz I've heard some horror stories about them hahaha), how the computer itself looks, and most importantly, how it runs Smile

Hey, bull, don't threaten me about showing up on your door step, I just may one day!  I LOVE Alaska!
 
I did a 7 night cruise there about 5 years ago. It was by far the most beautiful place I have seen on this earth.   I went salmon fishing one day too.  Wow!
 
I want to go back again, fly in and just stay at a fish camp for a week, no cruise.  I was on the verge of booking a fishing trip for my Dad and I little over a year ago and then he up and croaked on me in August of 06.  Was hard on me.
 
Anyway, I really want to go back. Maybe next summer I will!  Tell you what, when I do, I will get with you and we can set something up! I would love to meet you.  Us "older gamers" are clearly a driven bunch! I must warn you. I have not owned a motorcycle in over 20 years.  I used to have them and dirt bikes growing up in Vermont.  But, when I moved to Florida, I got rid of my bike!  The traffic and drivers here is insanity!
 
Dude, seriously, I just may take you up!
 
Again, you toads getting your systems must give us other idiots an update! We are jones'n over here!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Ha!

Dl I'm NOT kidding, I'll treat you right!  Just keep in touch and I'll take you places that will rock your socks, and they are about 50 - 60 miles from my house.  You do have to share space with my English Bull Dog, Bruce.  I can't tame him either. LOL
 
Later Friend.  And I'll let you know all about the puter, when I get it.
