Immortal Gaming Review
Published: 30th July 2008 | Source: Immortal Gaming | Price: £N/A |
Over recent times that has become increasingly difficult, so many products being offered to us by so many companies, all claiming to be the quickest, smoothest most extreme on the planet...
Looking through page after page of substandard hardware of no use to us serious gamers was getting tedious.
Being avid gamers for the last 18 years, we know what’s hot and what’s not. We know the needs of the ever growing gaming community and what they demand from their hardware for when it gets tough in the heat of battle and every millisecond or fps counts.
Immortal Gaming has worked extremely hard to be able to offer a FOCUSED line of the most elite gaming components and accessories available. It is our mission to constantly search the world over to bring you the most extreme gaming hardware from trusted, proven manufacturers.”
All of the prices on offer for us in my current upgrade (Intel Q6600 and an Asus Maximus Formula x38) were of very good value and were actually the best price we could find for any E-commerce site we could find and be happy purchasing from.
There is one gripe we had when purchasing off the site and it came in the form of their payment system. From what we gathered, upon completion of checkout, your order is placed but payment needs to be completed to make it valid. We can see this being a pain for the company if a large amount of orders came through, having to match each payment to each order before dispatching. Users are then redirected to an external payment page (secure none the less) to then reinsert all of their details (address etc.) to finalise the payment. This could just be me being picky but there has to be something to moan about. We think this is mainly down to how new the company is, and an integrated system will be in place in the near future.
Tuesday is here and there is a knock at the door and a white box greets us. It’s too small to be the components so what it can be. Upon opening it we find a customised letter thanking for my purchase and the statement telling me we are “On the path to becoming Immortal”. A cool sports cap was also included – very nice touch and excellent after sales, just what we like to see.
So where was the parcel? It came up to 2pm and hopes were somewhat low so we emailed Immortal Gaming. Within half an hour we had a reply including a tracking number. Quick response and just what we wanted. Keep it up!
Funnily enough, as soon as we had tracked it, a TNT van pulled up outside with the goodies. Now let’s see if the parts arrived in one piece!
The box was a bit battered but this was courtesy of TNT couriers. The only time we could probably hold Immortal accountable was if they personally delivered the hardware to your door, but until then we can hold them accountable for packaging or potentially lack of!
