Cheap for an i7.
Nice looking case
Recovery system made it easy to restore original OS to SSD.
Probably fast, haven't gotten there yet
Not that much bloatware.
Only takes laptop optical drives. No room for desktop optical drives.
A pain to open and add hardware. Recovery system requires USB drive, no way to make recovery DVDs, but that might be the fault of windows 8.
Only 4 sata ports, but no real space to add more drives anyway. Wacky lights.
Very disappointed that this uses laptop optical drives, I should have done more research. I'm unable to add my bluray drive to this machine. Maybe with more disassembly I can make it fit.
It was a pain to open this up to add my SSD, and mess with the hard drives compared to my 5 year old Dell computer, which required no tools and had spring loaded caddies for everything.
I haven't really tried to use it yet, still getting set up after moving the main OS to SSD. No plans for gaming, so it should be fast enough for what I need.
