    "Falcon Northwest's Tiki is the PC gaming equivalent of a luxury car"

    the entire experience Falcon Northwest has created around their custom PCs appears to be cribbed from [a top luxury car] customer satisfaction handbook.

    The Verge took a really interesting view on our Tiki: from the persepctive of a DIY PC builder who is getting a little too busy to deal with the hassles of his own DIY build.  He was amazed how hassle-free the Tiki was, and how we encourage our clients to use our support department if they do have a question. He likened the entire experience to buying a luxury automobile.

  • SlashGear reviews Falcon Northwest's TLX laptop

    SlashGear checks out our TLX: "AAA gaming, unplugged"

    Can the creators of our favorite gaming tower convince us there's a need for full-powered gaming notebook finesse? How about if the laptop in question is painted top to bottom in custom Candy Red?

    SlashGear got a candy red TLX loadout out with the latest Nvidia GeForce GTX 980m and quad-core Intel CPU.  What impressed them most was how little they had to sacrifice for mobility with a TLX:  "we're in the age of 'Desktop Class Gaming' and 'AAA gaming, unplugged.' Everything we learned late last year from
    NVIDIA about this next-generation class of processor, come true here."

    Actually, perhaps what really impressed them the most was the custom backpack the TLX ships in.  They were so impressed, they gave it its own "mini-review".

  • Falcon Northwest Tiki-Z PC Review -- Improving On Perfection
    August 2014
    Tiki-Z: "Improving on Perfection"

    Falcon Northwest continues to edge out their competition with thoughtful design, attention to detail, and uncompromising performance.

    "One of the most challenging tasks for a tech journalist is reviewing something for which you have no criticism. Perhaps I’m in the minority on that stance, but conveying to your readership that you enthusiastically endorse a product can often be misread as laziness or brown-nosing. In reviewing the Tiki-Z, the latest PC from boutique system builder Falcon Northwest, I find myself once more in this unusual situation.

    I’m probably to blame for calling the original Tiki “The Perfect PC” in my 2013 review. I painted myself into a corner and gave Falcon Northwest considerable leeway to screw up future iterations, but zero room for improvement. After all, how do you improve on perfection right? As they say, hindsight is 20/20.

    Falcon Northwest has performed nothing short of a miracle with their integration of the Titan-Z."

    Our Talon Earns an Editor's Choice award at Digital Trends!

    Falcon Northwest’s Talon is a veteran in this field. While new hardware has come and gone, the Talon, a line which was first sold starting in 1999, is still standing.

    Our mid-tower Talon model is our least "flashy" system, and so it's not as often requested by press for reviews.  But it remains one of our most popular systems for for a reason.  "the Talon is powerful, quiet, easy to upgrade, and provides everything a gamer could want in a mid-sized high-end desktop. Score: 9, Editor's Choice"
