My grandson asked for a gaming PC for Christmas. I was a bit wary of big manufacturers' promises. But who do you trust? The machine I got from Dino PC dazzles my grandson which is all I could ask for. Dino PC's service so far had been exemplary and the machine worked straight out of the box. That's what you want, and what's more it isn't bloated with a manufacturer's junk. I might just treat myself to one next time. Terry Rourke.
I came to hear about Dino PC from a Google search initially and was quite impressed when I saw that you could buy components separately. This was of importance to me as my friend was building the PC for me and I didnt want to pay someone else for a this service. Finding Dino PC was the hardest part of it all as the company are not easily signposted off the main road and it took me a good 15 mins of driving around and around before the chap popped out and I realized where they were.. They have a good setup and will not hesitate to go back to them for upgrades or peripherals.
This is my second purchase of a customised PC from Dino PC.
The computers were built Exactly to the Specification that I had ordered [so t here is nobody else to blame but myself!]
Both Computers were delivered on time, and all components were neatly installed! ]
I cannot thank Alan at Dino PC enough for his patience and expert advice.
DINO PC IS SIMPLY THE BEST!
Graham Mercer - Stranraer, Scotland.
I asked Dino PC to build me a highly specialized, small form factor machine for editing HD video - my working life. I had already built two edit machines over the past few years, so I know a lot about what I need and what I don't. And modern HD video at broadcast standard packs a huge amount of data: the normal codecs we use have a data rate of 200 Mbps, so I needed a machine that could crunch its way through Gigabytes of video even for a 30-second commercial.
And that's what Dino PC built for me. It's not "bleeding edge", because I need real reliability, but it's amazingly good at what I need it to be good at, and the people I spoke to actually "got it". They understood why I wanted a small form factor (for portability), and helped me choose the most effective components for the end use.
And it wasn't a silly budget, either.
The only problem for Dino PC is that this one will probably last four or five years!
I had searched for a long time to find the best price and best specification for my new PC.I had a price limit and could not believe how much I got for that from Dino PC. After receiving my new PC I could and still do not believe I could of got a PC with the specifications for the price they build it for.
I would recommend them to anyone after a custom build it was so easy to do the build on their site and no hidden charges unlike many other companies.
I ordered on line and the site was very easy to navigate around.
Soon sorted the spec I wanted and delivery was speedy even though I opted for the cheapest option.
Would definitely recommend Dino PC to anyone and will use them again
They were very helpful with getting exactly the specification right for the purpose I had in mind for a new PC. The revised quotation to reflect changes discussed was sent very promptly. The PC was delivered within or before the quoted delivery time. It works very well. they helped staightaway over the phone with a problem I had and it was resolved. I would definitely buy from Dino again and would recommend them.
Delivered on time, worked faultlessly, what more could you ask?
i wasn't home so i had to pick up the PC from the delivery depo. i got home turned on the PC no OS. A little miffed, since the manual said the OS would be pre-loaded. So i installed the OS (Windows 8) and relevant drivers. All good except the SSD was not showing. i called up Dino the next day and informed the guy that OS was not loaded and that the OS couldn't find the SSD. He advised me to format the drive, i wasn't home at the time, so i took down the instructions and tried it as soon as i got home, but no luck. Eventually I found something on the Dino website (FAQ). To cut a long story short the cable from the SSD came lose during transit; hence why no SSD. After re-connecting I realised the OS and drivers were all loaded the SSD. A warning in the package that the SSD cable could be dislodged during transit? it would of saved me hours of messing around! The reason for 4* is the guy at Dino should of realised when i said no OS was loaded that the cable might be loose (especially since it's on the website). Other than that the PC is wicked and would use again.
I did a lot of research before buying a new gaming rig and Dino was clearly the front-runner in pricing and having the latest equipment to deck it out.
I spoke with Alan who was fantastic to deal with and made sure I got what I needed and regularly updated me on the construction. He offered immediate (and at times more cost effective) solutions to any parts availability issues they faced and it should be noted that any issue with parts availability didn't delay the construction of the rig and they had it sorted in the two days express service - which i might add was a fraction of what other companies charge for slower "express" service.
Other companies I approached didn't even bother to get back to basic enquires I made several times over whereas Dino wanted to keep my business from the first phone call.
The rig is a beast and purrs like a kitten. Couldn't have been happier.
Really pleased with my purchase, all delivered on time and packed really well , now all put together and in operation and delighted with the look and feel of the whole system.
I will certainly recommend DINO to my friends.
My thanks to the team at DINO PC
Thanks to Dino PC for my amazing PC. I ordered a custom PC with a 3 day turn around and got just that. Excellent product, Loving my new GTX 780ti. The PC was delivered in a large box completely protected inside.
Good price, excellent service and fast shipping.
Would recommend to anybody.
Very good and fast.ssd drive is great and computer flies in far cry 3 .Very good value for money and very very well packaged. Will update if any problems in future
Everything arrived in tiptop condition,well packed and protected.
The instructions were clear and precise.Installation was a doddle.
The only sour grape was of my own making. Windows 8 bah! should have known better
Fortunately I have a windows 7 disc, so all ends well!
Thanks to all at DinoPC
Delivered in the time scaled requested (48hours) with all the bits in place. Goes like a bullet. Had a look inside and the machine has been extraordinarily professionally, fantastic job.
Really appreciated that all the manuals, face plates and spares that came with the parts were also sent with the PC.
This is the first time I have used Dino PC but was initially impressed with the layout and look of the website and the busy forum.
The configurator was easy to use and each item has a box pop-up to show the specs. At this point, prior to ordering, I found the forum to be an extremely invaluable tool (I have a good base knowledge of computers but am not an expert). The advice I received there (especially from a user named Kyo...I'm sure he won't mind me praising him here) enabled me to find the best components for my budget (I started with Intel but went with AMD for better value)
Once ordered, the patient wait begins for the email to confirm dispatch (slightly frustrating to not know anything till then but you can live with it). There is the option to pay for a quick turnaround but I just chose normal turnaround. Delivery is reasonably priced at £15 for next day delivery. I was expecting to wait weeks due to it coming up to Christmas and they had a Halloween sale on but I got the dispatch confirmation 11 working days later (estimate is 5-10 working days) which I was surprised at. Prior to dispatch, I had a query regarding delivery and emailed customer support who answered my query satisfactorily within 1 working day.
The PC comes in a huge box...the PC itself is inside the original box the case comes in and this is then put into a bigger box and surrounded by air cushions to ensure safe transport.
Upon opening the box, you find a box which is the Welcome Pack. It contains everything you need such as Windows disk, Hardware drivers and even a zip-lock bag containing all the wires and screws that were spare. It also comes with a small booklet to detail how to set-up the PC (good for those who have no experience)
The PC comes ready to go (all drivers installed as well as the Operating System if chosen). Once the PC is powered up, it's just a matter of registering and setting up Windows preferences and then you are done.
Inside the case, they have done a very good job with the wiring, keeping as much of it hidden as possible. There was a spare power lead connected to allow installation of a second Hard drive (which I did) but, you will need to buy the connectors as it doesn't come with spares (I had some from my previous PC)
What more is there to say? Would I recommend Dino PC to my family and friends? Most definitely, and so I recommend them to you too. They are quick, efficient, professional, helpful, have an excellent forum (which Dino staff do post in). Can I imagine a better PC company? Honestly, no I can't and I am not one who is easily impressed by anything but Dino have really impressed me and, next time I need a new PC, there's only one place I will go.
PC arrived on time, well packaged and was up and running in no time. Customer service excellent and staff very helpful with a couple of little difficulties in setting up (only due to my incompetence!) and without having to pay premium rate number for after sales help, I would be very happy to use this company again.
I had to return my PC twice because of faults although Dino disputed the second one and so deducted £15 for transport costs from the refund. I also spent nearly £8 on premium rate phone calls trying to sort out the initial problem that Dino would not agree to refund.
Having paid off my credit card I asked for the refund to be sent to my current account. Yes you guessed it - it went to my credit card account.
All in all very disappointing, time consuming and £23 out of pocket.
I have now bought a gaming PC for home and a work PC for the office from Dino PC an I've been very pleased with both.
Delivered when they said it would be and safely packed. The PC's have worked without a flaw.
Brought the basic Stego AMD 4130 but with the option of the AMD FX 6300 Black Edition CPU.
This is a excellent PC quick boot up and works well, being retired I just need to get used to windows 8.1.
I would recommend this PC for the basic home and office user and would certainly recommend DinoPC.com

Hardware - Outstanding
Price - Outstanding
Service - Outstanding
Technical knowledge - Outstanding
Had a few issues with hardware not being available during build phase, however all sorted and pc upgraded for no extra cost.
Pleasure dealing with Alan and the crew at Dino PC.
The Dino PC Website is easy to negotiate and choosing a computer was easily accomplished due to the various helps available; for instance, customising was straightforward as such a lot of guidance is available with respect to the various upgrades and their benefits of these.
My choice of computer is working well and I am just getting used to Windows 7.
The only slightly negative aspect of the computer is that the case of my desktop computer, although adequate, is not as robust as others I have had in the past. I chose the basic case and perhaps it is advisable to bear this in mind if one is likely to have cause to move your computer around from location to location.
Overall, I am very pleased and on my experience I would highly recommend Dino Computers.
My Dino pc arrived safely-well packed. Set-up was straightforward with the help of the instructions-written in English-good stuff! So far, so good. Windows 8 a challenge for old buffers like us but getting to grips with it. New HP printer now works properly as well.
Talk Talk sent me a wireless router foc. Can I run this machine wireless or shall I need a connection?
This is the second computer I have ordered from Dino, It was made to my Spec and delivered in 5Days. I wanted to change the GPU after ordering and this was done with no trouble what so ever, and all at a GREAT PRICE, More than happy to recommend Dino to anyone.
I am happy with the service & equipment I recieved from Dino, instructions simple to follow. However unfortunately for me Microsofy appear to be sending me years of updates, if they dont stop Ill have the computor wiped & start again.
However, great service from Dino
The PC fully does the job I expected it to do without fault, however the shipping time was over a week after it was expected. The couriers delivered somewhere between 12 and 3 in the afternoon on a Tuesday, who's is home at that time on a tuesday to sign for it? Ended up having to pick it up from the depot myself after work. I also would like to mention the lack of communication between the customer and Dino PC left me feel out of the loop.
