5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Windows 8 has a cool feeling to it.
The computer runs all my games great with very high framerate and never any lag at all.
I game on here, email, use the internet and do school work on here. I love it and it was only a little bit above $1,000.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good out of the box computer

Pros: This is my first ASUS box
Speed and performance above expectations.
The machine is very quiet.
USB and peripherals connection are well located.
Item was a little more expensive then other computers in it's category but I have no regrets. The specs and performance outweigh the price tag
Highly recommended

Cons: I highly recommend to remove bloatware and the bundled DVD player software, It slowed down the computer considerably. After removing DVD player software, the PC ran much better. Replaced the DVD software with something much better
Initial sporadic loss of WIFI network connection. After updating to the latest driver version via the vendor web site, no more network problems.
Keyboard and mouse flimsy. I replaced it with a better quality keyboard mouse combo.

Other Thoughts: PC is perfect for the whole family.
Highly recommended

3 out of 5 eggsGreat computer!

Pros: Fast
Quiet
Great graphics
Great price

Cons: Seem to be having issues where the computer will completely freeze. Can't even move the mouse. I've deducted that it is probably caused by bad memory issues. Unfortunately, I need my computer for work so I can't go without it for the few days it would take to have it exchanged, so I will just have to suck it up. Thankfully it does not happen all that often and is quick to restart when it does happen.

Sorry to hear that the graphich chip fried out. I checked this VGA card and it does show a fan to cool down the VGA card. If you are still under the return policy with newegg, I suggest you return the unit and have it exchange for one that is working properly.

4 out of 5 eggsA very fast out of the box system for a good price; but beware!

Pros: System has an extremely fast processor (Core i7 3770), 16 GB of RAM, 2 TB HDD and a decent video card for average users in the GT 630

Cons: No SSD from factory and ASUS customer service is terrible.

Other Thoughts: This system is a very well configured mid-tower desktop that can handle pretty much anything you can throw at it. After purchasing, I immediately upgraded the factory hard drive with a Crucial M4 SSD. The SSD combined with the configuration of the system makes it scream! I am very pleased with the overall performance of the system.

Windows 8, while many do not like it, is not a bad operating system. It's new, and many people dislike change. If you take the time to learn the ins and outs of the operating system you will more than likely begin to like it.

My only complaint about this system has been with ASUS technical support. As with many manufacturer's in today's world, you now have to create your own system recovery disks. In years past, manufacturers would include these disks with your system in the event that you would have to recover the system to it's original factory setting. Not only does ASUS not provide the factory recovery disk but they do not even have any software on the system to create your own recovery media.

I contacted ASUS about this and the first representative essentially tried to tell me this was Microsoft's doing and not ASUS. He explained to me about system backup and the recovery drive that you can create within Windows 8. I am aware of both of these options, and while the recovery boot drive would work (assuming you have a recovery partition) it's not quite what you would expect.

The second phone call, the representative clearly told me that there is no software installed by ASUS to create your own recovery media. In the event that your hard drive were to fail and you needed to recover your system, you would have to send the system into ASUS and have them do it for you.

As some may know already, Windows 8 no longer has a license key sticker on the case of a pre-built system. This means that the days of using an OEM disk for a manufacturer and entering in that license key are over. The license key is now embedded into the UEFI. I have read some alternative ways to do this, and I have no worry in figuring out an alternative in the future should I ever need too, but those who aren't savy enough and just simply like to create a recovery disk and keep those disks in a safe place may want to look elsewhere.
