5 out of 5 eggsI think it is great.

Pros: Has enough usb ports and connections for what I need without having to buy special adapters. Has 5.1 sound and optical out. HDMI and Sata. The hard drive is large enough that I have quite a collection. It runs great with windows 7. The dual core intel is quite reliable and fast. Right off the bat it is great for surfing, movies, music, and older games. The CPU is Socket 775 so you can find newer faster CPUs for about 100$.

Cons: Mine did not have a built in networking card. Had to replace the PCIe Modem with an Asus Wireless N card. USB networking was not behaving. The graphics card included is better then not having one for sure. It is not meant for more then watching video in HD though. When you call the tech support they have very thick accents- very thick and helpful accents though. You only have the two RAM slots so consider upgrading your ram a 250$ project.

Other Thoughts: If you have one and you are itching to game, you should probally look for an Nvidia 430GT. I squeaked it in there and saw a significant boost in my windows experience score. (Now the RAM, Hard drive, and CPU are holding me back- at a 5.9. The card is a 6.7. It now handles crysis 2, portal 2, black ops, Nothing I have thrown at it has been unplayable- Actually it is gorgeous. They don't sell these anymore so this review is less to persuade you to buy it, and more to suggest what upgrades might help you out.

2 out of 5 eggslasted 6 months

Pros: Cheap price for the specs relative to other units

Cons: Power supply crapped out after 6 months, Acer not particularly helpful on their warranty (you pay to ship for them to evaluate whether to cover warranty, no guarantee you'll get your information back from your hard drive although you aren't supposed to open the case to get it out and back it up).

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Machine for the money!

Pros: It's a great machine for the money. Acer's typically are. Love the small footprint.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: Installing XP is not a trivial matter if you aren't familiar with installing oem drivers without a floppy drive. There are several ways to do it and I had very little trouble installing XP on this machine. I used the nLite utility to embed the SATA Raid drivers in the installation media. This is an awesome utility that only requires a burner to use. The nvidia drivers on the acer site did not work for me, but I installed the driver from the nvidia site and it worked fine.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it! Best in it's class!

Pros: I needed power in a small package. I needed a versatile PC that had a 64-bit processor, good clock speed, and SMALL. I dug up ALL the small desktops I could find on newegg, and even thought about building a small PC.

This is the winner hands down. Even if I would to build the same PC from scratch, it would cost the same, and I would have trouble finding a case this small. This way, I get it all assembled and it has a warranty (which I will probably VOID at some point) :)

It has handled everything I can throw at it so far, Virtual Machines, Audio Production, Video Editing. So far, so good!

Thanks again NewEgg! Your the best!

Cons: Only 2 memory slots, but I knew that when I bought it, so it's not really a con.

Other Thoughts: Don't think, if you need it, just get it!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Solid processor, decent amount of Ram and 2x 320GB HDDs. The G100 graphics don't suck either... it runs WoW as reasonable settings/resolution(and HDMI out). Its tiny, and quiet if you like that kind of thing. Included OS is 64-bit (as they all should be by now) Easier and almost as cheap as building my own.

Cons: Tiny so not able to upgrade/add-in anything internally.
(no PCI-E slots open anyway) The mouse that came with mine didn't work, but it was such a good deal anyway I laughed as I tossed the mouse in the trash.

Other Thoughts: Excellent value for a pre-built box. I'm used to seeing vendors like Dell, HP and the rest marketing computers with the cheapest low-grade components around in order to keep overhead low, etc.. but this is actually a decent little box for lightweight apps/games. (and, no, it won't run Crysis, but what do you expect? Also, COD WaW is pretty painful to play on this, but it technically will run it )

1 out of 5 eggsNo XP (or service after the sale)

Pros: Cheap, works stock.

Cons: Is specifically designed to NOT work with XP

Other Thoughts: Vista is a terrible OS, I just want to get XP on to it. I don't care about the new features, I just want XP. To my dismay it crashes every time I try to install it from my CD. I spent half an hour with tech to finally be told THE HARDWARE IS INCOMPATIBLE. Yes folks, the hardware does NOT work with XP. You are stranded with Vista of Windows 7 (when it comes out) since they don't want toy using XP. Support later told me (after lots of fighting with them) that there is a way, but I have to pay SIXTY DOLLARS for one half hour for them to help me, even then there is no gaurentee. Being that the only thing Acer did well for me was recieve my money, I am distrustful of these scammers.

I didin't build this machine myself because I did not have the time. This is a harsh ($500) reminder on why I stay away from computer vendors and just assemble rigs myself. This is my first and last purchase with Acer, they are worse than Dell. I'll see what parts I can salvage for my custom build.

1 out of 5 eggsNot that great

Pros: Small and has power, room to grow in to! Large hard drive and looks great!

Cons: Poor tech support! Vista only can't dual boot with XP and Vista! No room for upgrading Small compact with no PCI or PCI-E slots open! Poor cooling for vid card!!!!

Other Thoughts: Poor tech support! out of country support cant understand most of the time what they say makeing a simple call last long times! Mine is 2 months old and in the last month sent it in to get fixed 2 times! First time they put in the wrong video card and they never even put in the driver for the card , they said tested and works on the repair report! So had to send it back a second time! Got it back 2nd time and hard drive not even formatted!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for my HTPC

Pros: Sleek, powerful, almost silent. Has the appropriate linkage (HDMI, Optical Audio, esta) to work perfectly as a HTPC. I had shopped around pricing individual parts and for the time and bang for your buck this computer is great! I am running MediaPortal and it records and displays HD TV content as well as local media without a hiccup. Works well upright or on it's side for a low-profile.

Cons: No TV tuner card(s), but this leaves you able to select which card/cards you install. Warranty sticker is over the side of case so if you go for an internal card it appears you will void your warranty. Video Card lock in riser is really close to HDMI out so if you have a HDMI with alot of plastic around the connector it will feel difficult to get cable in.

Other Thoughts: I love this computer, I have 2 tech-savvy friends that are looking to purchase this same unit for their HTPC.
