4 out of 5 eggsNot a bad PC based on price.

Pros: Pretty powerful, wasn't able to run WoW on Ultra, but on high with little to no lag.

Upgrade it to the SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X 100365VXL Radeon R9 270 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 and honestly, it's a solid computer. =D

Cons: The CPU fan died within a week of receiving the darn thing. They offered me another replacement of the same fan, but it's cool master and I've never had good luck with cool master.

1 out of 5 eggsCPU FAN

Pros: Computer is awesome and performs as expected

Cons: CPU fan has died TWICE in 8 months

Other Thoughts: I understand that there is the $$$ factor but come on, there are better fans that will stay running longer than 110 days.

I have personally seen computers inside fertilizer plants that have run 3 years with no problems!

4 out of 5 eggsOne of the best starting PC builds you can buy

Pros: I've had this PC for over a year now, and it has been one of my favorite purchases.

I was able to run everything decently well, key word being decently. You won't be able to run high + on 1080p with any of the current games out now. Pre 2014 games? Run them all on high at 60 fps. But this years ports are so badly optimized and hardware heavy, you need an upgrade if you want to run it above "decent."

Cons: A little loud, but not as bad as most, not having wifi is a huge hindrance, and honestly I still haven't found a supportive WLAN adapter that actually works with this PC... If I had one regret it's not buying a PC with wifi, I've had to tether through one of my space laptops for a year now because each WLAN I try has so many conflicting issues with the mboard... so annoying.

Other Thoughts: Great PC if they ever restock it and you see it on sale BUY IT. If it's more than 550, I don't recommend it, I've seen better builds recently for cheaper.

4 out of 5 eggsStill Running Strong

Pros: I bought this computer over a year ago primarily for gaming purchases, but also so I had a reliable, fast computer for any type of work that I might do. This PC still surprises me. It can play certain games flawlessly, games I didn't expect to be able to play on it.

Cons: The fan on the CPU is lacking and the system can get quite hot if not cleaned regularly. Also, when the machine runs hot, it will not run well. I also think a better power supply is an investment buyers should make.

Other Thoughts: A good value and like most computers, you will have to update video and graphics after a while if you want to play some of the latest games at their full potential.

1 out of 5 eggsThink twice before buying...

Pros: Cheap

Cons: You get what you pay for. I purchased this for my daughter and only 6 wks in she began to have problems with it. I wont bore you with the details, in fact there isn't enough space to provide it here. Basically, it kept shutting down on her. Blue screens, errors and simply not booting. After countless hours trying to fix each problem which she did 3 times it shut down soon after each time. After dealing with this for the first 3 months of cwnership, it finally shut down. We received authorization to return for repair at our expense $80. They lost the package for a bit and upon finding it... surprise, surprise it booted up for them with no problem. We explained that it had done this countless time and we are expecting them to figure out why. I know for sure they will return it and it won't work again. Sorry for the negativity but thus far I'm not impressed, only hopeful this will end well for us. I am just hoping this company will stand behind it's product and either send one that works for more than 3 months or refund our money.

Other Thoughts: We noticed on their company's website there are over 1400 incident reports and claims of issues with their products. What does that tell you? Wish we had researched better. BIG LESSON LEARNED. Hope this helps someone from making the same mistake we did. Oh and good luck getting help in a timely manner with their customer service department. It took us almost 3 months to finally get a RMA to return for repairs that will probably never happen. After reading others reviews I'm glad we didn't purchase additionally warranty on this product since that didn't seem to help those that did. Bad enough we had to return it at our own expense and may very well receive the same defective product back. I'll post again if that doesn't happen. Hope to have an update soon.

4 out of 5 eggs5/5 now that I cooled it down

Pros: Good performance for the price point. English speaking manufacturer tech support.

Cons: Weak CPU cooler

Other Thoughts: I purchased this PC to replace my aged 2007 model from another manufacturer, which treated me well but was, well, aged. I am not a power user or a gamer but I do some light photo and video editing so a bit of performance is in order. This machine has delivered that nicely. Other reviews I read noted overheating problems so I purchased this machine suspecting a cooler upgrade may be in order. Early on, it seemed ok but after about 6 months I started to SMELL heat and it started locking up. Suspecting a power surge damaged PSU (my local power company is terrible), I replaced the PSU. While I was at it I added an additional case fan and regreased the CPU cooler, while noting that it indeed seemed on the small side. During this process I started monitoring temps. I was hitting temps in the 70C range just checking emails! I bit the bullet for a Hyper 212 EVO cooler and installed it yesterday. I processed some GoPro video which runs the CPU at nearly 100% and the highest of the 3 CPU sensors said 50C after 5 minutes. I can live with that, and I'm running 34C as I type this. If I was to order this machine again I'd order it WITH an vastly upgraded cooler. That is my only gripe though. I now anticipate a few years of good use out of this machine.

One more quick note: I did have one minor issue getting the Windows license to work. Called the manufacturer and got an honest to goodness English speaking human on the line quite quickly. Another HUGE pro for me!

5 out of 5 eggsAvatar Gaming Computer

Pros: This computer is a gaming PC right out of the box as advertised. It plays games such as Skyrim, GTA IV, borderlands 2, and more games flawlessly from the last generation on high quality. The case is very spacious for plenty of upgrades, plus there is plenty of ventilation for cooling. The 1 TB hard drive will harbor all of the games you could want. Nothing was wrong with it on arrival and I have had it for a little over a month now with very few issues.

Cons: Although this computer is a beast for its price one should be aware that there are a few issues.

1) the power supply, being 450 watts, is a bit small but it does well for the specs that come with the computer.

2) If you are looking to play games that are going to be released in the next few years and have beautiful quality you might want to look at upgrading the GPU and power supply. It would probably be cheaper just to look at another machine in that case though.

3) The stock CPU fan is incredibly noisy and only continues to worsen after a month. Once the PC is powered on it is accompanied by a loud, buzzing, vibrating noise. After about a minute the noise decreases slightly but still leaves you feeling like you're sitting next to the AC unit. I am replacing mine which should fix that issue.

4) Just a random con that affects absolutely nothing, but the two lights on the front are incredibly bright and may blind you if you plan on lots of night play. It's not a con so much as an observation really.

Other Thoughts: Overall this machine is perfect for those who desire to play all of the fantastic games that have come out in the past and pay a great price for it! The few cons noted can easily be fixed if desired, but for the price everything seems pretty on par. I love this PC and I am sure that others will too. Happy Gaming!

3 out of 5 eggsDecent startup for the price

Pros: A very decent package which will allow you to enjoy most of your games on High graphics settings. Very easy to upgrade with lots of spare room in the case.

Cons: Will need to upgrade for any next gen games coming out (2014-2015). Specifically the power supply i found was very lacking as well as the graphics card.
