3 out of 5 eggsNeed help and can't get it

Pros: Lovely computer, rates 7.6-7.7 on performance, except for the hard drive that comes with the machine, coming in at 5.9(this might just be a memory issue). It's big too, meant to be tinkered with and have things added. Not too noisy.

Cons: I can't get any customer support. Running the performance test and some games i.e. Starcraft II, the machine constantly keeps putting up the error message "The program has expired". If I click "okay" it goes away. If I leave it the particular application it is interrupting sticks. IBUYPower support told me to reinstall Windows, no dice. Microsoft forums had me run virus scans and disk error scans, no dice. On Google I see different games associated with this error, possibly being created by Lucid Virtu MVP. I've tried turning off that program and SCII does work, but the performance scan still gets the error. To be clear, this error pops up between 20-30 times on a performance scan and 10-15 on a SCII launch. It's annoying. I'm nearly ready to uninstall MVP as some forums have suggested, but don't know the ramifications. I've still got help questions out. Any help or ideas for fixing this would be gratefully accepted. It appears to be a new issue since early 2012

Other Thoughts: This is my first home computer, besides a beat up hand-me down laptop. It has been a good buying experience through Newegg and there haven't been too many unpleasant surprises for what is a significant purchase price for my household

1 out of 5 eggsComputer's OK Company is BAD

Pros: Reasonably priced. Fairly good looking tower.

Cons: Noisy CPU cooling fan, i.e., cheap CPU cooling fan. Cheap keyboard. Cheap mouse.

Hard drive went bad after 6 months use. Motherboard died shortly after the hard drive was fixed. The folks at ibuypower.com issued an RMA so all seemed well. Their estimate of how long it would take was so wrong. After 18 days in their hands, they hadn't started working on it. And Customer (no)Service could only offer expedited shipping once it was done being repaired. I asked for the opportunity to exchange the machine for a new one so that I wouldn't have to wait for it to be repaired and I even offered to buy up to a higher spec system but no on both counts. They didn't care to make things right.

Other Thoughts: Look for another computer from a better more customer service oriented company. I am sure you can do better than I have.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsWould not buy again

Pros: Computer ran fast during the month or so that it actually worked, only a small amount of bloatware included

Cons: Computer basically stopped working after two months, at first I got near constant blue screens which I fixed after reinstalling windows. A week after that it started freezing and required manual restarts, I could be doing anything: working, gaming, or just browsing the net. It got so bad that I dug out my old computer and am using that as we speak.

Customer service is awful, unless you like waiting on hold for an hour and then having a tech hang up on you when he can't answer your question. I now have to RMA the computer which means waiting two weeks (if I'm lucky), paying for shipping (Shouldn't they pay to ship their defective product for repairs?), and I have to go back to using my ancient machine again. I was really excited to get a gaming computer for the first time and be able to run my favorite games on high settings, if I could do it again I would have bought from a different company. There's a reason you never heard of ibuypower

Other Thoughts: Hopefully the RMA takes care of the issue, ibuypower needs to brief their techs on courtesy; their tech hung up on me after I waited for 45 minutes, because he couldn't answer my question. Why not just transfer me to someone who does, tried to call and make a complaint but they put me on hold and after 30 minutes I decided it wasn't worth it.

Don't waste your time with this company.

4 out of 5 eggsJust a tad disappointed

Pros: Recovery CD included. No bloatware. Blazing fast I7 unlocked processor. The case is well built and wiring is nice and neat. Lots of usb ports with 2 on top of the case. The system is easily upgradeable unlike most dell and hp systems.

Cons: Ok so here comes the cons. Lackluster hard drive and the thing is not silent at all. They could use a little work with their packaging. The key board and mouse as well as the spare case parts are just thrown into the box and get the heck bashed out of them in shipping. In fact the spare case parts were all over the inside of the box because the box that held them came open in shipping. The system it self was placed into its case box like most computers and then place into the box with the key board and mouse. It had enough padding on the top and bottom of the box but none on the sides. I am shocked this system arrived in one peace.
My windows activation key was missing. IBUYPOWER tech support is not a 24/7 service. It is a 9 to 5 service Monday threw Friday and closed on weekends. So they were no help. Luckily I found the sticker stuck to the plastic in the box and it will no longer stick to the side of the case. Going to have to glue it. And from reading around I found this is a n

Other Thoughts: IBUYPOWER you have a good thing going here but you need to work on your packaging and customer service a little. And extend your tech support hours a little. There are people like me who work 9 to 5 jobs and can't take time off to call you when your open.

5 out of 5 eggsBarely 5 eggs

Pros: Good cable management, reasonable temperatures - processor 60c max at like 50% load, graphics 70c max at full load, and average was like 68 i think. Seems powerful at the moment, but somewhat unstable. Already had a few hiccups where frame rate froze for like 4 seconds even on a light game (sims 3), but other than that it seems pretty good.

Cons: Customer support was incredibly rude, the guy hung up on me and gave me an attitude answering my questions when I called. Made me mad I gave this company my money... Other thing is the hard drive seems unreliable, I googled it, its a caviar blue by western digital 7200, a lot of people had failures as well as a large amount of errors on the drive. Another thing is people heard whistling in the hard drive right before it failed. My antivirus already detected 20 errors during a scan, and one thing scared the hell out of me : the hard drive started whistling! And it is one hell of a creepy whistle, loud and unbearably annoying. It only whistled for like 5 minutes though, and its been almost a full day now with no whistling.

Other Thoughts: Good value for the money, what can I say? Hopefully they will be good about it if the hard drive fails, which is the most unreliable part out of all of them. The cooling solution for the processor is not the stock, and seems to cool worse than it.

If this computer ever breaks or I have further problems with it I'll try to update this review (if you can?)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: This thing is fast. The i7 intel processor is a great quality product. The graphics card (Radeon HD by HIS) its OK. iBuyPower should choose XFX or Diamond card. but it is still a great card. Motherboard supports XFIRE so guess what. I will get another 6850 for extra performance. case comes with a 700Watts PSU so it should be more than enough. This tower is excellent for beginners to intermediate players and it could be easily upgraded for a lot more power.

Cons: The case has a fan option to be implemented on the upper back of the case. They should have thrown an extra fan in there for extra ventilation. The cooler the case the better. But no biggie, already bought extra fan and fan filters. I did not hear the fan issues most are reporting. I believe iBUYPOWER fixed it already. Great Job!!

Other Thoughts: Cnat go wrong with this Tower.

5 out of 5 eggsGamer Extreme 903i

Pros: Nimble, quiet, easy to set up, no bloat-ware.
Lots of USB ports and it's especially nice to have USB ports on the top of the computer for easy access.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I only started configuring the computer to my liking, but pretty much have everything configured in a couple hours. The system did not come with anti-virus, which is good, because I prefer to choose my own.

After installing all the Windows 7 patches and antivirus software, the system was ready to go.

By my standards, the computer is quiet.

Delivery was on time, no damage to the computer.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks very well!

Pros: A fast computer at a great price

Cons: Honestly, I can really think of any major cons.

Other Thoughts: I bought this item as an open box product, but the price was right. The package arrived in great condition with no signs of damage. I was very glad about that. I opened it up and everything looked good, and I had 99% of what I needed plus most of the accessories. It didn't have a power cord, but I have plenty of those. before I turned it on, I opened up the case and noticed that the graphics card had come loose during shipping, so I carefully re-inserted it. Hooked up everthing, and powered it up! It booted right up, and I got everything installed and downloaded all of the necessary drivers.
Newegg, you have exceeded my expectations! I feel like I got a good product at a great price.

5 out of 5 eggs(30i Desktop PC

Pros: Awesome... for the price its the best bag for the buck i did quite a bit of research on neweggs entire line up Read the reviews went to the websites ext..
Gaming-Really Smooth reliable and excellent graphics Came with very little spam-ware
Work- I also use this computer for 3ds modeling and animation and have had excellent Render times and plenty of space for storage with the 1 TB HD I gave the 903i 5 eggs because it has met all of my needs with work and play

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Noise if your worried about fan noise then you might be annoyed by the 903i it is pretty loud compared to a standard desktop but it is a gaming computer which i expected so for me it was not a big deal
Something i noticed a lot of review on here were people complaining of Graphic cards needing to be reseated Mine did need to be reseated but my though was that it was normal shipping procedures so the card wouldn't break in route ****Always inspect the internals for loose connection upon arrival*** Also DO NOT set this cpu on the carpet it has a air intake on the bottom so it needs to be on a desk or a well ventilated nook
