Jarno: There is a long-running thread on GP Forums where people post about their experiences with New Zealand stores. My vote for builds is Computer Lounge as well. I also use Ascent for bits and pieces.


Computer Lounge have a good PC Build forum too where you can request a quote for parts and get a decent discount off the the listed prices.

Computerlounge. Never got one built by them, but a number of friends have and all very happy. They provide a quality build with TLC and make it look very tidy. You can also ask for a price match if you find it cheaper somewhere else.

You can never have enough Volvos!

gjm: computerlounge are good. Prices not best but not worst and may do a price match if you ask. Also good service and never had any problems when Ive had to RMA items

PBTech is good for stock, prices sometimes and convienence. Service is average if not below IMHO but as long as you know what you are looking for they have there uses. Returning stuff is a PITA

I second pbtech being extremely difficult for warranty returns. They will try to deny or wiggle out any which way they can.

That was my experience on one occasion, and I've stopped using them since that.
