    Rain Computers Inc. Venturi Pro Reviews

    Venturi Pro Video Editing Computer is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not all its cracked up to I bought this computer because I was tired of fighting with less expensive systems, thinking that by paying more I would get better device. the computer is well built, but one of the fans rattles so i had to shim it with a pad of paper. The Xp Rain zone doesn't work even after a service call online. My new video monitor was not recognized until I installed another video card. On line and telephone support S&*cks and I will certainly not recommend this system to anybody. If it were a $1000 dollar machine it would be a good deal, but at 2500+ its a rip off. I can build a better computer myself for less. the only thing good about the support is that they speak good english.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Great I use this system at home frequently for editing in Premiere and After Effects. I'm sorry to say that I'm disappointed in this product. I'm working on the fouth system sent from B&H (not their fault) on warranty. The first system was damaged in shipping and wrecked the internal RAID, the second arrived and wouldn't even turn on, on the third it arrived with only one screw holding the power supply, making it hang and bounce (didn't even fully unpackage it before returning), and now I'm on the fourth. It's odd that I worked on the first system (with the damaged RAID) until I received an undamaged system and that one operated flawlessly. I can't say the same about the fourth. This system seems slower than the first and will shut off while rendering Premiere timelines. While Rain tries with their customer service, their hours aren't great and so I can't contact them when I need to since I use this system at night. I'm not a Mac fan but that is what I use at work and I don't have these issues on them. In addition, in working on Macs with comparable hardware specs, Macs are a much faster platform. I don't want to say it but I wish I had bought a Mac Pro.
