Something that's impossible to cover in reviews is the long term reliability of products. If you're reading this, here, it's highly likely you've built your own PC and have some experience with reliability of components. Obviously some of you will have been doing it longer than others or had access to more hardware. It's obviously subjective: we have our favourite brands that work for us, but I wanted to formalise our experiences and know what you've owned and how well its worked for you? Is it still working or did it only last six months? We want to know both good and bad stories.
In an age of "Ultra Durable
", "Xtreme Design
" and "Military Grade
" marketing it's essential to sort the wheat from the chaff so we're better informed as consumers.
