2 out of 5 eggsIt was ok while it lasted

Pros: Low price
Decent specs

Cons: Blew up at 18 months old

Other Thoughts: It was a great value but it only lasted 18 months before it went ka-blewey. It tripped a breaker in my house and stunk the place up when it went too!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet
Low Cost

Cons: This is the second system. First sytstem sent to me seemed fine. Ran fine and we left it on and went to dinner. Came back, it was off and we were never able to get it to come back on.

Hopefully the new system Newegg sent me is fine. Would be leary of purchasing this system, and really would have preferred a refund to get something different. PC purchases are non-reundable.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of JUNK....DO NOT BUY

Pros: ZERO

Cons: This computer is a complete piece of JUNK! The first tower we got and plug it in. Not only to not turn on and start smoking!!! Did an RMA and just received the second tower. Now.....Windows 7 is not formated and has me locked out of the "System Administrator". Now Avatar wants ME to pay to ship it to them to have the BRAND NEW computer completely reformated.

DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Other Thoughts: I am a new customer and this is my first purchase. I am not a fan right now and I hope Newegg makes this right!!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Tree (3) day Shipping was on time, no external damage to shipping container.

Cons: During Unpacking noted rattling noise when item was handled. Opened right side of case, found TWO (2) MOBO mounting screws and TWO (2) screws missing from MOBO mounting positions. If an unsuspecting person would have connected all cables and devices there would have been smoke at a minimum when power cord were plugged into a live power receptacle since the power supply toggle switch was in the “ON” position. Quality control, in my opinion is absent. I Have not yet powered UP since a much closer inspection of the Build is in order.

4 out of 5 eggsFast, Nice HD size; so far, so good...

Pros: *** Price
* Cooling set up (LARGE space on side with a rather hefty fan) seems to be more than adequate for this system.
* Simple, attractive exterior which retains fingerprints very easy. Bright, shiny...
* I like the power "switch" and bright red-orange I'M ON light. Would not be fun in a low-light environment.

Cons: ** Didn't like the anti-tamper seal it came with keeping you from opening the box without voiding the warranty. NOT cool. If you plan on taking this to 6 or 8 gigs RAM immediately, be aware of this fact.
* Several cosmetic defects/structural blemishes. Since two of these machines will be "under desk", that was insignificant.

Other Thoughts: * Has a slight incline (2 to 3 degrees, rising towards the front)
* Box is very light (Very light sheet metal construction; one arrived with a dent, another with a slight misalignment)
---
--- I ordered 3 of these for an office upgrade project. This is a no frills box. It's constructed of rather light sheet metal and two of my boxes had minor cosmetic defects. Somehow they managed to get a dent near one of the screws, but this didn't affect the whole set up. The "touch to open" DVD door only worked on one of the machines. The power switch is not a "button" but an indentation. Not sure of what mechanism it uses to sense a touch, but it works well so far. Immediately went to Win7 Enterprise, so not feeling the slackness of the Starter edition.
---This machine gets it's 4 egg rating STRICTLY based on price. If the machine had been more expensive, it would have been 3 eggs. As the price is creeping up from when I first purchased it (bought it solely on the fact that this was Newegg and I haven't been stiffed by them), if it goes much higher, I may have to come back and toss an egg (say, for example, if it goes over $350).

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Do not know yet

Cons: My box will not post. On/Off switch unit attached with one lose wood screw and other was missing. Magnet for front usb access fell off (hot melt). Only 250w PS, was suppose to have a 300w.

5 out of 5 eggsHome Server

Pros: Attractive case that is easy to access on side panel.
Nice blue led on front panel and small red led (HD)

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: On another site a reviewer stated that the CD/DVD panel does not open. Not true, there are to buttons one for each CD/DVD 51/4 drives which depress eject buttons.
I used this to install Linux Ubuntu server on it as a home server and router. Over kill on the specs for Linux but I want a robust home server. Plan later to get another box with higher specs and nice video card to use as a Windows server entertainment center in the future.
