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.

the entire experience Falcon Northwest has created around their custom PCs appears to be cribbed from [a top luxury car] customer satisfaction handbook.
SlashGearFebruary 2015SlashGear 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".
Digital TrendsJanuary 2015Digital Trends Tiki-Z Review

"Oh man this thing is beautiful..."
Bearded Coffee Monkey is an artist and YouTube personality who had us paint his artwork on his new Talon system. When you order a custom painted PC, there's a few weeks of waiting while we turn your idea into a painted reality. How'd we do? Just watch the smile on his face as he unwraps it...

After 22 years of ruling, Falcon Northwest's Mach V still deserves its throne
Digital Trends took a look (and a lot of great photos and video) at our latest Mach V loaded to the hilt with Intel's new 8-Core CPU, triple Nvidia GTX 980 graphics cards, and a 2TB RAID array. They came away impressed with everythign from its perfromance and looks to its warranty and quietness. Overall "The Mach V is expensive, but it looks, feels, and performs like no other. Few competitors can match its performance and none can match its elegance."

ForbesAugust 2014Tiki-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."
TechRadarMay 2014Tiki wins TechRadar's Recommended Award
Tiki is a fantastic high-end system that quite elegantly sums up everything that is great about gaming PCs.
"The Tiki is tiny, whispers while running the latest games and looks gorgeous in almost any setting. What more can you ask of a premium gaming machine?"
Digital TrendsMarch 2014Our 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"
