5 out of 5 eggsreliable computer

Pros: bought this machine for a month now and mostly been using only for editing and burning avchd home movies using my canon hd 10850p camera.i am using cyberlink power director 11 ultimate software for editing and installed LG GGW-H20L super multii-blue-bluray player for burning using cyberlink power dvd ultra 13 to support the lg burner. so far i have edited around ten avchd movies running between ten and twenty minutes per movies using sony dvd -r blank disc. burning a ten minute movie takes about 20 minutes. so far i am pretty happy with this machine because its really performing well beyond my expectations.

Cons: fan a little bit noisy but still acceptable.

2 out of 5 eggsSeen better deals

Pros: It is a great computer for simple gaming and home activity. Runs fast, always has started right up, no crashes (so far).
I do like the computer but it will need upgrades.

Cons: Within 6-8 months the power supply got loud, within a year the computer has 3 games installed and cannot play any of them near a high quality without problems (Wow, NeverWinter, and Combat arms). Also, now the front fan has become super loud, I clean it once a month so no its not the dust. I would not buy this computer the second time around. I will probably need to replace the power supply within the next few months along with the fan.

Other Thoughts: I knew i should have stayed away when i seen AMD. Good luck to anyone who buys this machine.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money!

Pros: It's cheap.

Cons: I've had this machine for just over a month now. The manufacture refers to this as a gaming PC. Out of the box i couldn't even play Team Fortress 2, an old game which ran fine on my old (8 years) PC (dual core, 256mb video card). I was running at 10 fps on this one out of the box (unplayable). I ended up buying a $200 video card to replace the one which came with this machine. If you plan to play any games made in the last decade, you'll need to do the same when you get this PC. Consider that in the pricing by adding in an additional $100-$200.

In addition to the above, the USB ports are pretty much unusable on the front and the ones on the back are about the same. I have to constantly wiggle my wireless keyboard connector to get it to work. Again, this works fine on my old Dell.

And lastly, the sound on the motherboard failed at just over a month in. This was going to be the final straw, but unfortunately, i'm just past the month return period.

I'll probably end up having to replace the motherboard. It looks as though i'm pretty much going to end up gutting this machine and rebuilding most of it. It's beginning to look like i just spent $500 for a PC case.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Fast and packs a punch right out of the box. Easy to set up, Windows 8 has been ok so far, I haven't seen any of the issues that people complain about. I actually kind of like Win8. Quiet overall which is a huge deal for me. Plays GW2 on high settings; however, I switch it to low settings during WvW due to FPS lag. Some reviewers are complaining about BSOD but I have yet to have this happen to mine.

Cons: Fan died almost a week after I had it. High CPU temperature kept shutting off PC. Of course since I live out in the boonies it takes a while to get a replacement fan. Another issue I've noticed is that when I wake it up from sleep mode, it does not recognize one of my screens even though it did before I put it in sleep mode. Unplugging the power seems to fix it. Just a minor issue but since I usually always leave it on to get to homework, work, and gaming it can get annoying.

Other Thoughts: Overall, loving it.

1 out of 5 eggsBlue-Screen Out of Box

Pros: -Fairly quick PC
-Cheap
-When it's working, runs pretty well

Cons: Blue screened out of the box. I bought TWO of these PCs, one for myself and one for my wife, and they both have the EXACT same issue. It's totally random when it happens, and I know for a fact it is not overheating, because I literally put a box fan on the side of mine because I thought that would fix it. It just randomly freezes, restarts, then when I get logged back in, I get a windows error message talking about a blue-screen. I have done HOURS of research on this, no help what-so-ever.

BUYER BEWARE.

Other Thoughts: The blue screen happens 1-2 times a day generally and I spend about 4-6 hours a day on my PC, my wife does the same. We both get it.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Entry Level Machine

Pros: - Cheap...got mine for $459 as an open box special here
- 6 core CPU is fast and can be overclocked from 3.3 GHz to 4.5 GHz
- 16GB DDR3 1600 RAM is more than sufficient to meet the needs of most gamers

Cons: - Motherboard is small and only has 1 PCI Express slot
- Power supply can only handle 460W
- CPU fan is insufficient for overclocking
- Entry level gaming PC...but is properly reflected by the cost

Other Thoughts: Despite my cons, this thing is a beast...but it needs to be fed. If you buy this, expect to have the urge to upgrade components right away. The Nvidia GeForce GT 640 card is good, but it's a little dated and might not handle some of the latest games very well at high quality settings. For this reason, I purchased a XFX Radeon R9 270X from BB for $219.99. I'm listing this info because it was a great price and came with a download code for Battlefield 4 plus 4 more game downloads through the Radeon Ruby Rewards program. When I picked up the card, I quickly found out that it requires a 500W PSU. For that reason, I ordered a Thermaltake 700W from this site to accommodate my needs. Lastly, I picked up a Corsair liquid CPU cooler from BB. I got everything installed last week and I couldn't be happier with the unit and the overall money I saved. Now it's time to overclock...

Pros: Fast Computer, Quiet

Cons: The Video card covers the only PCIE slot on the mother board, and thus you dont have one!
