5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Great machine for the price! Maxxed out the memory to 16 gig and added a GTX465 graphics card and this machine screams for me!! 6 months and not a problem.

Cons: Only con was haveing to install and back up the pre-installed operating system. Not really a problem but time consumeing before I could get onto the desktop.

Other Thoughts: This machine came with 1 optical drive and a card reader. Would have been a little sweeter with a second deck but no problem, I can just add a second 1 later.

3 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: Worked right out of the box. Looks nice. Blindingly fast compared to the computer it's replacing.

This was the best under four hundred dollar deal I found, even having a spare copy of Win7 Pro to build into components and even after upgrading the power supply right after purchase.

Cons: The case fan is noisy, I'm guessing because of a defect. I'm going to replace it shortly with a newish one from my old system.

System disks are not included with a recert model.

The power supply is 300W and has a very limited number of extra plugs. No way it's going to work with my video card, so I bought a nice Corsair 500W unit. for 30 after the rebate.

Other Thoughts: If the case fan didn't have the clicks, this would get a four.

5 out of 5 eggsi love it

Pros: It is super fast and quiet! I can't even tell if it is on sometimes. Looks nice, too. Games like Wizard101 load beautifully and quick. Easy to load all my photos now too!
Would buy from Newegg again.

Cons: Haven't come across any as yet!

Other Thoughts: I bought my refurbished emachine from BBuy 5 yrs ago; I needed a "new" computer badly. Then 2 computer guys I know referred me to Newegg. They helped me find and decide on this model for my price range and needs. My child can now play all her games, like Wizard101, w/o problem--and I can do my photos easily!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Overall

Pros: Good for the money, Got all your basic needs for the average user and it looks nice.

Cons: no bluetooth
mobo is a little weak, somewhat incompatible with the graphics driver concerning hdmi audio output but a dedicated video card will solve any problems.

3 out of 5 eggsVerdict still out

Pros: Affordable system. With ASUS, you can't go wrong.

Cons: Bought two, one for each stepchild, and one is working flawlessly while the other is getting constant BSOD's (Blue Screen of Death). It's a good thing I have a spare Windows 7 install disc handy because these PC's came out of the box with no documentation or discs....kinda sad, actually.

Other Thoughts: My analysis is that it came with bad RAM so I'm switching it out tonight to see if that fixes it. If so, hey, it's still a good deal. If not, the problems could be far more complicated and that would make these systems not worth the hassle.

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints

Pros: Worked great right out of the box. Fast, quiet and performs really well. Great desktop for the price. Love the fact RAM can be expanded up to 16 GB. Would make a great gaming system with a few improvements.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I am very pleased with this purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Computer...but

Pros: Great price...great computer...have heard only great things about Asus computers...does everything I need it to do.

Cons: I received the computer Thursday and set it up Friday...easy set up...but the optical drive did not work...makes a clicking noise all the time while the dvd disk is in...called newegg...they referred me to call Asus concerning the matter...took a 20 minute hold time to get someone only to find that the only way to fix the problem was to take it to a company(which I will not mention) to work on it...the only problem is the company is 40 miles away...it would be cheaper for me to buy a new drive and put it in myself...which I did mention that to Asus, but they would not do that. This is my only complaint with the computer.

Other Thoughts: I would have given the computer #5 eggs if it was not for this and the support from Asus was a little disappointing

5 out of 5 eggsNewegg / Asus Purchase

Pros: 1. Expidited delivery was just that.
2. Product was properly protected.
3. Everything worked great out of the box.
4. Canabolized older computer for a hard drive and wireless adaptor and they were easy to install.

Cons: 1. You would think by now wireless cards would come standard.

Other Thoughts: I've been buying Asus boards for years and never had a problem. Although this is a recert, I don't expect to have any now.
