5 out of 5 eggsGreat Computer

Pros: This computer has served me well for just under a year now with no issues.
It ran perfect out of the box, and hasnt had any problems with anything i can throw at it.
Very quiet, it sits about half a foot away from my head and i can't even hear it.

Cons: Ugly case
No SD slot

Other Thoughts: I am unsure how this computer fairs on the upgradable side of things, but I will be finding out in the next few weeks once i get some new parts.

Pros: See below

Cons: See below

Other Thoughts: That other guy needs to lower his tech level to zero. It's a dual core I3 - 550 with HYPER THREADING.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid!

Pros: --Very fast shipping (after purchase)
--Good capabilities/memory for the price

Cons: --Poor quality control (that is: NONE)
--Stopped working after 1 week
--VERY slow to do repairs/shipping
--Manufacturer customer support is a joke

Other Thoughts: Tower needed to be returned for a hardware failure (hard drive died in first week of ownership). Not the manufacturer's fault, but "customer support" was all but useless. It took so long to get the company to take the tower back in for repairs at their cost (under full AND extended warranty), that when it was finally back in my hands and had components unsecured in the case (graphics card...no skrews at all), I had no recourse. By this point, the "repair" had taken 23 days, with NO updates from the manufacturer (I had to call since no email responses). I was disgusted by this point and wanted to return for refund, but I was past the 30 day return, so I'm stuck with it. Biggest waste of money. Do not buy from this manufacturer!!!

5 out of 5 eggsThis is one awesome system

Pros: This thing's cool. It may not be made by a well known brand, but it's a great system. Nice and reliable, a very open case for cooling (it just about never gets hot no matter what you're doing), and a nice big fan. The terabyte hard drive is obviously a plus for gamers and generally people in the media business. The graphics card is also a big plus. Those unfamiliar with ATI cards: these cards are extremely powerful, with high speed across the board. Couple that with the RAM and the i3 processor, and you've got yourself a fast system.
The case is also a plus for people who like to tinker around the innards of the system. It's very large and spacious and you can get it open in about 15 seconds.
There's quite a few USB plugs in the back, one in front, firewire, all that.
For an offbrand system, it's really great. It comes with Windows 7 inside, and Office 2010 preloaded.

Cons: Of course, there are some problems with any system, and the main one for me involves the front plugs of the case. I opened it, and about two days later, the front board there came loose. It's not a huge issue, you can fix it with a screwdriver, but it's still an issue nonetheless.
For some people, an open case might be an issue due to dust, but again, not a huge problem.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdates and Upgrades

Pros: Too many to list.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I suggested that those who bought this PC should go ahead and purchase a Sapphire Radeon HD 5670 and am going to write a last update on it. It's been 3 months since I've owned this PC (supposedly). There have been no issues thus far. A common issue is SP1 and Itunes. It will not sync w/ any apple products. I don't know if its a universal issue or just this PC. Other than that, buy this PC. You will not get a better deal w/ the potential this PC offers.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Works great. No complaints. I bought this for my mother-in-law.

Cons: It's loud. The fan on the power supply is the culprit.

Other Thoughts: It does have HDMI. I am not sure what the other reviewer is referring too. Maybe he doesn't know what HDMI is. I have it hooked up to my LCD TV in my front room through HDMI.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Sys for the money.

Pros: Fair amount of Memory, decent HD, Fast CPU.
Fast Newegg Shipping,
Could not build a system for the price.
I'll reserve other comments after it has been up and running for a month. so far so good.

Cons: I knocked off 1 egg because of the Q/C Issues

Other Thoughts: Q/C at IBuyPower could be better,
Would not powerup at first, then I opened up the case to find that they never connected the main power cable to the MOBO. Once i connected it eveything worked fine.
