Velocity Micro Vector GX Campus Edition (Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86GHz) review: Velocity Micro Vector GX Campus Edition (Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86GHz)

We've always lauded Velocity Micro's support. The Vector GX comes standard with one year parts and labor coverage. We credit Velocity Micro most for its comprehensive online support, which is easy to navigate, clearly written, and in general one of the most robust in the industry. Phone support is not 24/7 in the standard package, but its lines are still open during a generous window, from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m, Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET on Saturdays. And of course you can upgrade the service incrementally, up to three years of warranty coverage, with 24/7 emergency phone support and onsite service.
