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.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Bad

Pros: The machine worked for six months after purchase and I was able to run my games on full spec.

Cons: The CPU crashed and customer service never helped me even though I have a one year warranty they gave me the runaround about sending me an order ticket which they refused to send so I could never get serviced. Some days the customer service line is down and most days they never respond to customer service calls and when they do they will keep playing a game with you about an order ticket until you finally give up on being serviced.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this machine because you'll never get help if it breaks this is an immoral company.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

Pros: Still runs as good as new, even after almost a year of owning it. Never had one single problem with it. Ever.
Games like planetside 2, dayz standalone, eurotruck simulator 2 all run on high with no problems. I really, like REALLY love this rig and is the best pc investment i have made.
Boots up in 10 seconds.
Handles my editing software flawlessly.
If it was soft and squishy i would give it a hug.
Sure there are better rigs out there, but not for the price. And for a casual gamer like me this handles everything i throw at it and is the perfect machine for what i need it for.

Cons: Only 2 usb ports on the front, not a big issue since theres more in the back, but its kind of annoying

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.
