+Good customer service, the side panel was scratched upon arrival, contacted customer service and they sent me out a new panel a week later

-Windows serial code was stuck on the painted side panel, why not on the back? Was a pain to get off(little peanut butter and elbow grease did the trick)

Over all great experience, fast service, good build quality and great customer service. Would buy from Digital Storm again.

@Bob Saget,

Thank you for posting the review. I'm glad you are happy with the system and service! I'll share your thoughts about the Windows sticker with the team, the reason why we place it there is because that's been the standard spot and it makes it easier for our support team to tell customers where it is. It also makes it easier especially if you have your system in a computer desk cabinet.
