We stand behind our products and believe there is no better
spokesperson than the customer. Here are a few things our customers
have had to say about our personal computers.
|Brian in Norwich, New York (2nd testimonial, over a year after purchase)|
so much for responding. This is really the best computer I've ever had
in my life, the setup was great, and the fact that you've responded and
offered help after the support period just confirms me in wanting to
continue as a customer. In fact, my mother's ready for a new computer
and I've recommended you guys to her for consideration.
|Buddy in Manassas, Virginia|
a quick note to tell you that I have received the desktop PC that I
ordered from you and that I could not be happier with it. It was all
that I hoped for and more. This is easily the best value that I have
received from any computer purchase that I have made. Thank you.
|Eric in Tulsa, Oklahoma|
love my EV500 and everyone that has seen what it can do wants one. I
tell everyone where to go to get one. Keep doing what you're
doing--everyone should switch to Ubuntu.
|Marty in Davidson, North Carolina|
I've had my EV900 for several months now and I am very pleased with it.
There have been zero hardware or software issues. As this is my first
Linux machine there has been a bit of learning involved, but I have
found lots of good documentation to help me. I love Ubuntu, and now
recommend it to my friends. It is a shame this is not a mobile machine
so I can take it around to show it off.
|Glenn in Newark, Delaware|
Just a short note to let you know that I am pleased with the EV800 that I purchased from Eight Virtues.
I disconnected one of my old Windows machines and replugged everything
into EV800. To my surprise, it found all of the connections
automatically on start up, except my LAN printer. The printer came
online when I told Ubuntu my printer's address. A little experience
with live "Hardy Heron" helped me make a smooth start up.
At this point, I have been able to do everything on my Linux Box that I
was doing on my Windows Box, and more. My Windows files moved to the
Linux Box without a prolonged session of conversions, etc.
While I am still learning, I am not deterred by my lack of knowledge for Ubuntu. Nice documentation!
Access to Linux Software via Synaptic Package Manager is awesome!
Thanks for the service!
|Shreyas in Brookline, Massachusetts|
bought my EV600 about 6 months ago. I have computers using both Windows
and Mac OS. I was so sick of Windows and its instability and constant
need for upgrades. My Mac rarely crashes and I have really enjoyed it
Because I really hate Window's Vista which is such a huge cumbersome
sloth, I decided to go with Linux/Ubuntu and was only going by a few
reviews that I had read. I needed a solid workhorse computer which was
fast and stable. I received my EV600 after a short delay and as
advertised I plugged it in, hooked up to the Internet and it
immediately recognised my old HP all in one printer and worked more
smoothly than any Dell computer I had ever owned. The wireless mouse
and keyboard have been great and I just hooked up the speakers and the
sound and video quality is amazing for a $600 machine.
I am REALLY HAPPY with my EV600 and have NO HESITATION in recommending
this machine to anyone. I thought having a Linux based system would be
daunting and it is different but with a little patience things can be
figured out and made to work!
Thanks EIGHT VIRTUES for re-establishing my faith in PCs! I have not
had to make a single call yet about a problem and hopefully will not
have to for a long time!
|Harold in Fort McCoy, Florida|
am more than happy with the final results of the Eight Virtues computer
that you built and configured for me. It far exceeds my expectations. I
was able to do many common tasks right out of the box with no former
knowledge of the operating system. Your selection of added software
should please the most demanding user. I have had the computer for 5
days and have not even scratched the surface of the fine programs at my
Again, my sincere thanks for an outstanding machine.
|Justin in Killington, Vermont|
falling in love with Linux on an older PC, I felt the need for 'clean
slate'. I wanted to invest in a machine that was able to meet my
needs as a gamer, music lover and marketing assistant, then decided on
the EV600. I did a lot of research on the Internet for Linux
machines, and Eight Virtues really peaked my interest. Several
months after my decision, I can honestly admit it is the best computer
purchase I have ever made in my life. I could not be happier and
love my EV600 more and more with every new day. Not only does the
Eight Virtues machine come ready with anything you can possibly need,
it is set up to plug and play from the get-go. Eight Virtues follows up
on all their promises, and goes above and beyond the mainstream
distributors out there today. You really cannot go wrong with
Eight Virtues in my opinion. Even my employer is impressed with
|Nik in Kansas City, Missouri|
just recieved my new computer and so far I am very pleased! Thanks
again for working with me on such a personal level, that is rare
nowadays, but extremely beneficial to business. I will definitely
recommend you all to my group of friends the next time they need a new
PC. Also, I will try to get the word out on you guys around
here. As you probably know, word travels fast.
|David in Sycamore, Illinois|
I took it out of the box, plugged in a monitor, keyboard and mouse; plugged it into my network connection, turned it on…
I was ready to go. No lengthy setup, no expensive software purchases,
endless installations, all-night battles with problems.
plugged in my printer. Before I could get up off the floor, it had
already recognized and configured the printer. And told me it needed
I owned an original Apple //e, IBM PC, Mac, and on and on.
But never have I had a machine that just plugs in and works, fully
loaded with all the software I need. I have been telling all my friends
and business associates about this, and absolutely no one has even
heard of it. Am I missing something? Anyway, bravo! Thank you, and let
me know when you come out with a laptop version.
|Bill in Indio, California|
early explorations into the Linux world didn't nearly go as well as it
has with Ubuntu and my EV800. So far, it seems my only limitation is my
own knowledge. Between you and [...] the Ubuntu/Linux community,
I haven't had too many questions go unanswered.
The whole experience with EightVirtues has been very positive. I will be back for another machine...
Thanks for all you help and thanks for a great computer...
|Brian in Norwich, New York|
wanted you to know - I LOVE the EV600! This is the best computer I've
ever owned, bar none. The set up was fantastic, everything runs like a
dream. The selection of pre-installed software is perfect. Rest assured
I'm telling everyone I know how great this is. My Linux-savvy sibling
is jealous and wants to order, but she has five computers already and
isn't feeling extravagant. I will certainly be spreading the word.
|Lee in Corpus Christi, Texas|
Thanks for the
super quick response times and a deal on an awesome machine. I look
forward to adding another Eight Virtues node to my system soon."
|Tim in Lyndon, Kansas|
The second computer we ordered just arrived today and everything is working great. The wife is loving it :)
Thanks a lot for everything, the machines are
very impressive (I never knew compiling programs could go so fast :)
and we're both satisfied with the purchase. The service and willingness
to answer questions have been a nice change from dealing with most
businesses as well. I'll recommend your systems whenever I get a chance
|John in Sewell, New Jersey|
pretty good at this Linux thing and I find a lot of help out there on
the Internet. I appreciate all your help. I like being able to fix
things myself. I think I told you in my first message that I've been
using computers since the early to mid eighties so I'm no beginner. Got
to tell you that this system with your tweaks has to be the best
computing experience I've ever had. I'll never go back to Windows. I
once toyed with the idea of buying a Mac, but they are so expensive.
Now I have the system I've always wanted (and needed).
You (Eight Virtues) have redefined the meaning of
exceptional customer service. It's refreshing to be treated with
respect and consideration. You offer a combination of value and support
that's tough to match. I have a great system customized to my needs
that worked right out of the box. And you have been with me every step
of the way with after the sale support. I appreciate your prompt,
thoughtful and always helpful replies to my email messages. Thanks.
Consider me a loyal customer.

Just to let you know that
computer is doing great. The EV600 came yesterday, I let it dry out a
couple of hours and have it fired up and running with no problems, it
seems to perform great.
Frank in Jackson, Ohio|
...I have shown this system to
several frustrated Windows users in the area and I believe some of
these people will buy systems like mine.
Glen in Quitman, Mississippi|
Am very happy with the computer...
Marsha in Guthrie, Oklahoma|
So far I am very pleased with the computer and feel like I'm going to enjoy using it.
Mike in Akron, Ohio|
I just started reading a few
books pointed at Ubuntu and I think with how easy this makes a Linux
environment we might start seeing it become a competitor for a good OS
in later distros.
Your company is helping straighten that curve and thank you for that.
Looking for good things from your enterprise.
Bob in Erie, Pennsylvania|
the computer today. Works as stated. The interface is a nice touch for
the novice. Good selection of apps (more than I use in a month).
The 300 is definitely a casual desktop, but fun to have as an open
office PC and for browsing the blogs, etc. Plays my tunes and runs MIRO
videos quite well. For someone new to Ubuntu it is non threatening and
even easy, or so my "guinea pig" (a document tech who volunteered) said
- 'could be cool'.
Again, your efforts for making a wholly usable Linux OS out of the box [are] great.
I will surely provide the Ubuntu community with a very positive review of this PC in the next issue of Full Circle.
Ron in Milwaukee, Wisconsin|
Have a good Monday and I would recommend you if I knew anyone else who wanted an Ubuntu computer.
Tom in Concord, California|
I received my computer and it's working fine.
