PC Pro just reviewed our Pro Video 3XS Evolve NLE HD Plus workstation, giving it 5 out of 6 and a Recommended Award.
Here are some juicy quotes from the review:
‘Creating a cinematic blockbuster in your home may seem like a far-fetched proposition, but that’s all in a day’s work for the Scan 3XS Evolve NLE HD Plus. An impeccably neat interior, every cable neatly zip-tied and routed out of sight. The Scan’s flush of SSDs puts it in a different league to anything we’ve seen before. The 480GB RAID5 array smashed past every machine we’ve ever seen. A superb build make for a PC that’s both powerful and unusually quiet.’

The review describes the Scan 3XS Z97 Vengeance 780 as:
“Right now, you’re unlikely to see anything quicker from a quad-core PC”
“For a high-end gaming rig, it’s satisfyingly quiet”
“The 3XS Z97 Vengeance 780 guarantees top-notch performance for many years to come”
The Vengeance has one of the new Intel Devils Canyon Core i7 4970K, which we overclock to 4.7GHz and watercool. Other components include an EVGA GeForce GTX 780 graphics card, 8GB of Corsair 2133MHz, 256GB SSD and 2TB hard disk.
PC Advisor just reviewed our 15.6″ mid-range gaming laptop, the 3XS LG156, giving it a score of 4 out 5 and a Recommended Award.
According to PC Advisor ‘It’s good value and provides the sort of gaming performance that would have cost £1200 or more in the recent past. Well-heeled gamers might prefer a more expensive model taking top-of-the range graphics, but the 3XS Graphite is a good choice if you need a solid gaming laptop on a mid-range budget.’
