Happy New Year! Now that 2016 is a wrap, we officially have the numbers on the most reliable hardware of 2016.
At Puget Systems, we track a lot of data but one of the most important things we track is the failure rates of individual components. Reliability is of our primary values, so this data is invaluable for tracking both individual component, product line, and overall brand failure rates. With 2016 coming to a close, we thought we make public a bit of this data to let you know what hardware we found to be the most reliable in 2016.

After the long holiday weekend, we might need to read this blog post twice.. "Reducing Distractions".
A few years ago, the owner of Puget Systems told me about a product that had helped him focus on his work. I'd been feeling less productive and more distracted when trying to work, so I decided to install the application he recommended which is called Rescue Time. I installed the free version, and let it do its thing in the background.

ICYMI: The performance/throttling testing on the Samsung 960 Pro VS 950 Pro was pretty impressive.
M.2 drives like the Samsung 960 and 950 Pro can give incredible performance, but under sustained loads they can get hot enough that the drive needs to throttle the performance to stay within safe temperature limits. In this article, we will not only compare the 960 Pro to the 950 Pro in terms of raw performance, but also in terms of how quickly each drive will throttle.

You still have 3 more chances to win an EVGA GTX 980!
Here at Puget Systems, we are cleaning out our shelves for end of the year, and we have 5 NVIDIA GTX 980 cards just sitting here. We want them to go to a good home for Christmas! We are giving away one each Friday in December.

Intel has released some new motherboard chipsets, but what is the difference?
With the release of the first Skylake-S CPUs, Intel has also launched the new Z170 chipset. Unlike previous launches where Intel releases all the new chipsets and CPUs at the same time, this time only the top chipset and unlocked (K-series) CPUs will be available at launch.

Who is ready for some machine learning performance results? Here is NVIDIA DIGITS with Caffe on Pascal GPUs data.
NVIDIA's Pascal GPU's have twice the computational performance of the last generation. A great use for this compute capability is for training deep neural networks. We have tested NVIDIA DIGITS 4 with Caffe on 1 to 4 Titan X and GTX 1070 cards. Training was for classification of a million image data set from ImageNet. Read on to see how it went.

Here are a few of our favorite products of 2016. What are some of you favorite products from this year?
With 2016 coming to end, I thought it would be interesting to look back at some of my favorite products of the last year. I prefer products that blend into my life. That means they shouldn't require a lot of updates or ask me to change my behavior very much in order to enjoy them. So as much as I might like a smartwatch, I don't believe it would add enough utility to make up for having to charge it each day. With that in mind, here are fi...

Update Woes: Why you should wait to update your software.
I had a client who recently contacted me over the weekend in a bit of a panic because he had just upgraded to the latest Adobe Premiere CC 2017 and that caused him some grief.

Excellent custom PC makers. Great quality parts, wiring, and packaging. Impressive level of service offered (great and fast advise on my build, clear visibility into stages of assembly of the machine). A service rep called me a month after delivery to check in and see if I had any problems. Only negative thing to report is that there's a high price tag attached to their services, but I believe it's a fair price for the high quality experience and product they offer. They've earned my trust.

I can't say enough about these guys. Seriously. From start to finish I was constantly updated on my build and support was all over it any time I had questions. Also their prices were outstanding and they had the latest gear I was looking for (one of the only sites that had the 1080 ASAP). The thing I liked most about it though was the insane level of detail these guys put into the build process. For instance there's a picture tab on the process screen, which I was just expecting to see some build photos of the assembled parts. But NO! I got not only BIOS screenshots, I GOT FREAKING THERMAL IMAGES of my new system both idling and under load! That's some next level stuff. My new system also got to my house super fast and was packed like a pro. All of the extra parts were neatly arranged for me, as well as a binder with information about my new gear. I plan on using this rig for years to come, but the next time I'm in the market I know exactly where I'm going. It's not even a debate.

My workstation is my tool. I needed a new one and could not find exactly what I was looking for until I found Puget Systems. They built me a custom computer that is high performance, silent and very cool. There is lots of room for expansion and it is beautiful inside the case. The customer service was great from help with evaluating my order to watching the building and testing process on their website. My machine was delivered safely and the packaging kept it safe. I may not need it, but Puget provides lifetime labor and tech support.

Puget has the uncanny ability to take whatever input you can give them - your budget, what you'll be using the machine for, what types of apps you'll run, etc. and suggest a machine that matches them perfectly. Then they'll build it for you, take pictures of it along the way, and send it to you WITH all the extra hardware, CDs, and other stuff you might need one day, all with no bloatware. And they're super friendly and informative to boot. If you order something from Puget you'll be happy you did.

It was time for a new desktop computer. I usually build from scratch, but I'm too old and tired to do all the research, and the frantic building required so you can test everything before the purchase warranty expires. One real advantage to building it yourself is that you're intimately familiar with everything, and there's no bloatware. So I wrapped my mind around buying a custom-built computer, and started surfing the web. Several places popped up, most of which seemed mainly interested in selling me something. Then I found Puget Systems. They seemed interested in building me a computer I could use. Where do I start? This outfit is great! Just visit their site and read their stuff. No hype, just straight-forward medium-tech talk about what they can do for you, and how they really want to get from you what you'd like in a computer. And how they've done this enough that they know what works and what doesn't. I didn't want anything fancy, and I wanted a minimally-configured machine to which I could add components (disks, graphics card, etc.). I selected their Spirit model. They understood. I was able to order a machine that ended up costing only a few hundred dollars more than if I'd done it myself, without all the hassle, after a few-message email conversation with their support people. Then it was two weeks from order to delivery. And guess what? It works just fine, and as advertised. Thank you, Puget Systems. And it's fast! I upgraded from a quad-core, 2.67GHz, spinning-disk system (ca. 2010) to a quad-core, 4.0GHz, all SSD system. Windows 10 boots in <23sec, compared to >60sec for Windows 7 on my old box. Now, as soon as I get used to Windows 10... Would I do it again? In a heartbeat. I cannot recommend them more highly. It has been a pleasure doing business with Puget Systems.

If I could rate Puget Systems higher I would! I simply love this company and I feel very grateful to have found them. I am currently on my second PC from them and couldn't be happier. Pros: - Reliable, fast response, best customer service I ever seen. - Puget Systems does not add bloatware to there computers. Meaning you won't have computer with useless junk on it. Just the operating system you ask for and things you actually need. - Puget Systems really listens to you and they do not try to up sale you with add-on parts that don't fit your needs or budget. - When you order a PC you can watch the process with updates on there website so you know what's going on every step of the way while it's being built which is pretty cool because it's nice to see what's finished, what part are in order, and thermal pictures of your PC to show you where most of the heat is at so they can configure the fans properly to reduce heat in your PC. - You can upgrade your computer you bought from them for free as part of there lifetime commitment to you as a customer and they'll even clean the dust out if you ask! So if you need a new video card and a power supply they can put it in for free. Great if your local if not it depends on shipping and handling costs. - If you got a problem with your computer they actually care even after the computer is sold. Also a one year warranty and parts from Puget Systems is included. They also email you to check up on how your PC is doing after you use it 6 months or so to check if you're still satisfy with your purchase. - Best benefit I found is if you're local like me you can always drive up to there place of business and avoid shipping and handling cost. - Products they use are tested for reliability so there not going to sell you cheap unreliable motherboard, power supply, etc... They only sell parts for computers that they have tested a lot and feel strongly about when it comes to parts being reliable. - If you call and talk to a sales rep and you have no clue about computers or what each part does they will explain every part and what it does and how it helps you when it comes to your needs in your computer you're trying to build. So you can also learn about computers parts and know which part you should spend more money on and what part you really don't need to. Cons: - Can take up to couple week since they have to build your computer and sometimes they have to get a part if its not in there inventory at the moment. With that being said this isn't really a con for me but, had to put something! - If you're not local I assume things might not be good when it comes to upgrades or issues with your computer due to shipping and handling cost. - They can be tad bit expensive if you're on a low budget depending on your needs of course. Nice thing though they will be honest and at least tell you the price and try there best to find best way to work with your budget.

I can't say enough good things about this company. Purchased two PC's from them about two years ago. One for school, one for my parents. Both PC's have been rock solid stable. Their phone and in-person support has been phenomenal as well. You can't go wrong buying a custom computer from Puget Systems.
