4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great computer.

Performs extremely well, looks great, runs cool and quietly.

Cons: - Sleep mode will force you to unplug your computer for a few seconds as it gets in a restart loop.
- The case window has fingerprints on it that I can't seem to be able to remove.
- 500 watt PSU is kind of low, wish it was higher so it would be upgradable in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsSlick Machine

Pros: Fast machine, good amount of expansion capabilities, great parts to cost ratio.

Cons: Moba outboard sound is fuzzy and unfixable (seemingly) with driver updates, keyboard & mouse are a little cheesy looking.

Other Thoughts: I bought this machine about a month ago and so far everything is as advertised. The thing is lightning fast, works great and is everything I was hoping for. It kills pretty much everything i throw at it from work related stuff to vgames and I've not run into a single hitch. Again, great machine.

However, there is one issue I've run into - the onboard integrated sound positively will not work without generating an extreme amount of fuzz. For example, when I go to listen to videos or games, it distorts crazily. In trying to fix this, I've downloaded, replaced, and re-replaced drivers for the thing and no dice. I literally troubleshot this for about a week and got nowhere. So what I ended up doing was getting a $25 sound card and viola, fixed. A small, but annoying issue.

Anyways, if you're on the fence about this thing, don't be. Its good stuff and will be a solid investment.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Gaming Desktop, with a catch.

Pros: -Extremely fast start-up (SSD - 20s boot time)
-No bloatware installed previously
-Liquid Cooled +Fan / Doesn't get too hot
-Extremely quiet
-Runs tons of games on the highest settings well over 60 FPS (nVidia card is well known)
-Lots of room for upgrading the hardware
-Keyboard included (No missing keys, lettering still on the keys, works fine for a temp or permanant keyboard)
-Mouse included (Don't really like it since I love my Razer Naga)
-Extremely well packaged
-Arrived in 3 days

Cons: -Sleep mode will wreck this computer
-500W PSU is kind of low, especially for a 760GTX, but it hasn't given me any trouble. You WILL need to upgrade this if you upgrade the video card.
-UPS did not ask for my signature upon delivery and decided to leave the box sitting outside... lol
-Mouse is nothing special. It has 3 sensitivity settings for the dpi (slow, medium, fast). Works okay as a temporary mouse.

-Windows.... 8.1? I guess? (Not really)

Other Thoughts: So here's my story... after reading every review for this PC, checking out the parts & prices, and checking out the company, I decided to risk buying this desktop.

Honestly, I was extremely worried at first. Talk of parts being DOA, the sleep bullsh**, bad packaging, first time Windows 8.1 user, who is iBuyPower?, etc.

All in all:

-The Packaging:
Was extremely good. (Inside -> Outside) It had foam inside the desktop to keep every part in place, desktop was between molded styrofoam, inside of a box, padded between 2 more foam piece, inside a bigger box.

-Windows 8.1:
is REALLY nice, and I'm glad I switched from 7. I like it a lot, preferentially, and it was really easy to get used to.
+As soon as I found the search function (now the windows key), everything was easy to find since you can just type it just like on the start button menu.
+I stay in desktop view mode 99.99% of the time. It's practically identical to Windows 7 with a bunch of your start menu programs shoved into the file manager.
+Have yet to use metro, but it looks really neat.
+EVERYTHING that I had working on Windows 7 also works on 8.1, thankfully. (All of the programs that I used & games I played)

-The Sleep Bullsh**?:
I didn't even deal with it. I went to the power saving settings IMMEDIATELY and turned off the sleep in every way shape and form. Sorry, but i'm not going test this only to bios crash the pc after everyone keeps saying that has problems. Literally the one major flaw of this pc...
+The 20 second start-up, if not less, is something I can live with but I wish the sleep did work :(

Last but not least, I doubt I could call this buy a "true" bargain, but it's definitely worth it. There's tons of room to upgrade and everything is working really well (aside from sleep mode). Have 2 monitors connected with a 5.1 surround sound system attached to it (back audio ports) and use my mic/headphones in the front 2 ports. Love it so far!

3 out of 5 eggsGood Minus A Severe Sleep mode Flaw

Pros: Quiet, fast, runs mmos like ESO and Firefall smoothly on ultra settings, comes with mouse and keyboard.

Cons: I ended up getting one that came with some sort of fatal sleep mode error that causes the system to go crazy rebooting itself over and over non stop, then it goes into some sort of fatal bios recovery screen once I get it to stop by doing a forced shut-down off the rear power switch. It came this was and has been doing it since right out of the box.

The printed characters on the keyboard begin wearing off immediately which makes it hard to type.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to give this PC 5 stars, but unfortunately I could never buy this again unless I knew this insane sleep-mode bug was no longer an issue. I am forced to either leave my PC running 24/7 or completely shut down then reboot each time I go afk. It's a real pain and inconvenience, and wastes a lot of electricity at my home.

3 out of 5 eggsA few kinks, but working fine 3 weeks after purchase

Pros: Fast, fairly quiet machine that runs recently released games like Arkham Origins with all the settings maxed out. I'm extremely pleased to see there's not bloatware on the Win8 installation. It arrived packaged very securely with both and an inner and outer box that contained enough packing foam that the inner box couldn't slide around at all.

Cons: This PC arrived DOA. I arranged for RMA repair through iBuyPower which took about three weeks to get back to me. The repaired PC was packed VERY poorly. The case was placed in a too-large box and, while there was packing foam on the top and bottom, there was room for the machine to slide around about two inches. I didn't even receive the inner box that the tower was originally shipped in! I am extremely disappointed that iBuyPower would ship a repaired computer out in such poor packaging. This seriously increased the risk of damage to my repaired system. I imagine this is why the fan blade piece was tumbling around loose inside the case. There were also two disconnected cables in the case (USB front plate wasn't connected to motherboard and the SSD wasn't connected either). There was also a broken thumbscrew on the case cover and one of the four case feet had popped off. The machine is working now, but I do wonder if the rough treatment it received will lead to problems in the future.

Other Thoughts: This is my third iBuy Power machine. The first two were good machines that never showed any issues. Unfortunately, the DOA followed by the shoddy packaging for this returned, repaired unit will lead me to avoid their products in the future.

2 out of 5 eggsEh...

Pros: Fast. Starts up in seconds. Great for gaming (World of Warcraft, Diablo III, etc)

Cons: Had it for less than a week and it died.

Other Thoughts: When I got it, the setup was easy. Nothing went wrong and booted really fast. Downloaded multiple MMO games, which is the whole reason I got the computer. Downloaded nice, and the game play was awesome. Fell in love with the computer, until one day it would not work.

Read multiple reviews about when the computer went to sleep, it would not start back up and reboot itself over and over. Simple solution, restart the system manually. Easy enough right. Decided, hey I'm not going to put the computer to sleep. I'll shut it down each time. Worked like a charm. Computer booted up quickly and it really wasn't a big deal. One day (force of habit from my old computer) I put it to sleep before walking away. Came back approximately four hours later. Tried to wake it up, it would not display anything. Thinking ok, people have been having problems with the computer not starting back up, I'll restart it. When I did, the power would run, but nothing would display on the monitor. Tried again, nothing.

So with this issue, I called a friend to walk me through what I should do. First we checked the most obvious thing to check when there is no display on the monitor, the monitor cord. Tried both of the ports, nothing. Tried a brand new cord, nothing. We checked the graphics card, made sure it wasn't loose. Checked each RAM bar separately to make sure one wasn't faulty, nothing. Tried rearranging each RAM bar in different slots, nada. Made sure every plug was in and not loose. Even went as far as to reset the BIOS....nothing. Called technical support for iBUYPOWER, told them what I tried. They said either the mother board or the hard drive was shot. Had to send it back to Newegg for a replacement.

I had that computer for less than a week. I did my homework before hand with friends who know computers before purchasing who said iBUYPOWER was a brand they did not know and to not purchase from them. I should have listened. Too much money for that kind of hassle.

The computer (when it worked) was fantastic. But, unfortunately I must have had bad luck. So, needless to say I will not purchase and iBUYPOWER brand again and stick with the brands people told me that are trustworthy when it comes to their products. Pretty sad actually, it was a very nice computer... again... when it worked... for less than a week.

But to end the sadness on a good note. Newegg was very helpful when it came to returns. Called them and they said they would send me a replacement. Computer was out of stock so I got a refund instead. Even refunded me shipping and the cost of the warranty I purchased with it. All in all, I will buy from Newegg again, but will not purchase another iBUYPOWER brand computer. Hope others have better luck than I did.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Rig

Pros: Shipped very fast. Currently setting up the PC for gaming. So far looks awesome. Didn't come installed with a bunch of useless software either which is a plus.

Cons: The box was torn a little when it was first received and I was not asked to sign for my package when delivered, completely ignoring the "Signature Required" stamp on the box. But the fact that none of the parts were DOA, I am happy.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a Great deal

Pros: This is the first true gaming system I have purchased and I must say I am not disappointed. This thing rocks! Start up is super fast and the graphics are crystal clear with absolutely no lag. In a word BRILLIANT!

5 out of 5 eggsReally Fast

Pros: -Fast SSD
-No bloatware preinstalled
-Good build quality
-Packaged well in shipping
-Very quiet
-Drivers were decently up to date on arrival
-Decent Mouse

Cons: -The keyboard is kinda cheesy
-Power supply will need to be upgraded eventually
-Too "Deep" to fit in my computer hutch
- Wifi could be faster, but is in no way unusable

Other Thoughts: This computer really met my expectations for the price to feature ratio. Out of the box it started up in about 30 seconds, runs fast, plays Diablo III on the highest settings with frame rate around 120 FPS. Additional Games TBD, but over all this system will be strong for at least a couple of years. Great Deal!

2 out of 5 eggsEDIT..of previous review

Pros: Cost for components

Cons: The mouse that came with the system was crushed on arrival...the "free gift" doesn't exist..the computer itself was a mess of wires on arrival and the bio's continues to act up....all these things are not nearly as bad as the "service" provided by the people at ibuypower.. Jeffrey Cheng finally responded to my emails and clearly could care less as he has continued to put my requests for a new mouse and free gift off with responses of "We are sorting out our gift selection and will be mailing you your gift to you asap"....that was a month and a half ago.....honestly im not to worried about the gift or mouse as the BAD service.
