1 out of 5 eggsDead after one year

Pros: Good and fast. I could run civ 5 on max and swtor .

Cons: After I replaced the hard drive. Now I the video card is going out. I spent 730$ only to have to replace basically the whole system one year later. Should have built my own system. Teaches me for trying to save time.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quick - Allows for easy multi-tasking. Beautiful graphical ability.

Cons: Seven months in and all the problems started. Blue screens, Overheating cpu, vid card and mainboard running hot. Reformated, still blue screening. Research showed software issue before reformat, research still shows software issue and now hardware issue.

Other Thoughts: Great for gaming, till the issues start.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, performs as advertised

Cons: Graphics card failed.

Other Thoughts: Ibuypower replaced graphics card. 3 weeks from date I sent old card in. Not bad considering the holidays I guess. New card is much quieter than old, leading me to believe it was bad all along. All seems well now. I am ordering another for myself. After reading reviews on model I am purchasing, still seems like a gamble. Am purchasing extended warranty.

This is a continuation of previous review on graphic card failure.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdated review

Pros: Very fast when it works.

Cons: Everything else. Only 3 SATA connections internal. Adding a controller for RAID arrays (for video asset storage) seems to throw this box for a loop.

I've never been able to keep the system running for more than a month or so without some drive causing an issue, losing the array, or the system crashing and having to restart it 5-10 times before I actually get a POST on my screen.

I had high hopes for this company and system, but I will not purchase from them again.

And if IBuyPower has enough time to monitor the reviews, you have enough time to contact me directly to sort out the issue.

Other Thoughts: All I wanted the system to do was run a video production machine. Apparently, this is NOT the system for that, so I can't imagine it would be any good for gaming.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat computer

Pros: The specs to cost was well worth it. When i first got the computer it was defaulted to the processor video card which was a nvidia since it couldn't pick up the radeon card. i just reseated the radeon card and everything worked well. the start up time for me from when u press the power button to fully loaded is about 10secs which is pretty fast. the eight cores provide fast multitasking speeds when running multiple programs but, gaming processing speed is not as impressive as a intel i7, i have beaten the loading times of first 2 gens of i5 and loads maybe a sec slower then the 3rd gen. My video card did die so i paid the shipping cost to sent it to the repair shop in California from Hawaii, but they paid the shipping back and got me a iceQ version of my video card and so far nothing has gone wrong after almost a year of ownership
Plays basically everything on the highest settings so far and im sure has some future worth of being able to play new games on the highest settings.

Cons: Reseat the video card when i first got it
video card died but got replaced (took a month)

Other Thoughts: This was worth it overall. I think people need to learn patients as far as the repair process goes.

2 out of 5 eggsThough it was great

Pros: Very fast computer, runs all the games I play on high everything seems great.

Cons: A little while ago I've been getting a lot of blue screens in the middle of my games very frustrating, the computer keeps crashing in and out idk what to do hopefully the manufacturer can contact me through this review or something.

Other Thoughts: It's perfect other then the fact that it crashes around 10 times a day when I play

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed

Pros: Worked at first. Speedy, good response time for photo and video production work.

Cons: Went belly up several times, hard drive issue. Hard drive not recognized. Had to open the case, check the drive connections. Hard drive always came back until two weeks ago. Then, the drive went belly up for good. Had not created a back of work I was loading in, so that was all lost. Fortunately, I had a USB drive that I could use xcopy with and get other files off.

Went to restore the system, and found I don't have restore media. I was able to use a Win7 disc I had to get it up and running, but now I am chasing drivers for all the devices. Very disappointed I have to chase down the drivers.

Other Thoughts: Could have been a kickin system, but now it's in limbo until I get it all restore, thinned out and tweaked.

2 out of 5 eggsSparks flying everywhere

Pros: Worked out of the box, opened the cover to see that everything's working correctly and that the videocard was seated properly, was able to play the latest games with no problem. It took not too long to get to me since I am near the great lakes and this was shipped from the west coast.

Cons: I came home today, fired up the machine to play some TERA. I heard a soft "pop" from the machine. Shortly after, sparks were flying from the bottom coupled with a bunch of firecracker noise. The smell of burnt electronics is still drifting around the room.

Other Thoughts: Now I look back on the reviews, this machines seems to have quite a lot of references to this same issue. Needless to say, I was scared out of my pants. Were there no quality assurance tests done prior to assembling the computer? Because it seems like specific parts of the computer (I'm thinking PSU) keep failing on a lot of people. Have to go thru RMA now, argh... more waste of my time and having to use a 7 y/o outdate machine to even contact them.

4 out of 5 eggsgood gaming pc but cheap power supply!

Pros: good gaming pc built for the buck. it runs smooth and the temperatures are rather low while gaming (i also added a fan at the top of the case).

Cons: the first pc i received, the power supply blew in like 1 hour. i had to send it back and received a new one, but i didnt take the chance of running it with the same crapper power supply it came with, so i bought a corsair 750 and swapped it in. never had any problems since then!

Other Thoughts: this pc is worth the money, i just recommend you swap out the power supply to something better.
