Few bucks, buncha bang. 12/14/2011
Purchased this with <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009256">this monitor</a>, and the setup looks SLICK. I would have used the monitor's DVI connection, but this PC only has VGA. Still looks amazing streaming HD content from YouTube, which will never be an issue with gigabit connection. Nice that a budget pre-manufactured PC has W7 home premium on it. Media Center is quick and smooth. Didn't get to try video games on it, but W.E.I. rating wasn't half bad. Bundled peripherals are aesthetically and ergonomically pleasurable. USB's out the wazoo (4 ports labeled "front" are actually on "top"). Plenty of room for expansion should the day ever come. Sweet, roomy half terabyte hard drive, and finally, how can you go wrong with a DVD burner?
I want to choke the numb nuts at Acer who decided to put blue LED's in the tower (and said monitor), and green LED's in the bundled (and otherwise matching) keyboard. Blue all around would have been fine by me. Sorry, I digress due to OCD. The wired mouse and keyboard feel a bit, for lack of a better word "dinky", but not so much as other value PC's I've used. Bloatware is increasingly ridiculous, but this is typical. Also, it will suck, should I ever install a video card, that I will most likely need to upgrade the PSU.
Since you're reading my review, you are interested in this tower. I think you should buy it. For its price, it exceeded my expectations.
