5 out of 5 eggsAwesome V2 52

Pros: 1. Excellent Price
2. Did not have any extra software included which is OK with me. I prefer to download freeware off the Internet.
3. Inboard Nvidia Gefore 6150 graphics adapter is adequate for me even for Doom3 and Fear.

Cons: Does not come with a modem card.

Other Thoughts: If you decide to add hardware I would recommend a larger Power Supply (500W). I intend to add another hard drive(80 gig), graphics card(EVGA 7600 GTS 7600), and a PVR(VisionTek VTK-THXP550P PCI)card for TV/FM/VHS.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: Very inexpensive and simple design PC. DVI outputfrom the motherboard is very adequate for editing photos and watching movies. Sound from the motherboard is also very adequate for listening to CDs. Therefore, I did not need to purchase and install video or sound cards, which made the PC very simple (less to go wrong and less internal heat). Side panels of the case are very easy to remove and replace for maintenance. The interior is very neatly laidout, especially the cables (no clutter).

Cons: DVD drive did work at first due to loose power cable, which was easy to fix. Front USB ports are mounted on the left side of the front panel, which makes them diffcult to use when the PC is housed in a computer hutch.

Other Thoughts: Will eventually add another internal hard drive. But, for now, I am using a 160 MB USB external drive to back up files, which works fine. Copied some backup music CDs, which came out very good. Have not yet tried editing videos, which I want to do when I get some time. Ethernet works fine with my cable modem.

5 out of 5 eggs<3 newegg

Pros: It turns out that the computer I bought had a bad CD Rom. It just wouldn't work. I called newegg and within 4 days of me mailing it back to them I had a new computer at my door.

Cons: Broken CD Rom.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat PC

Pros: This review is on the V2 30, which looks to be very similar to this V2 50 (less 512 Mb of ram and Windows XP Home.) Snappy PC, well laid out, no startup problems or anything else. I've been running a Compac Pentium 4, 1.8gHz at the office for some time, Love the new speed.

Cons: I missed the fact that the motherboard didn't have a modem on it. Not always necessary, but if you need an analog dialup, get a motherboard that has one or make sure you order one.

Other Thoughts: I'm very pleased with the overall construction and operation of this machine.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat, Cheap Media Center Box

Pros: 1) System came stable and hasn't had any problems in six months, except those I've caused of course. 2) It doesn't say but the hardware is all quality for the price. Mine came with Kingston memory, an NEC DVD burner, and a Cooler Master CPU fan/heatsink combo, among other parts. There's room for expansion in the case. And of course the Mobo was the best board with integrated video available when I got it. 3) If you want to upgrade it you can do it one part at a time rather than needing an overhaul. 4) It runs all the games I play at decent speed on low settings. 5) Boots very quickly until you load it down with software.

Cons: 1) The restore disk is not a perfect restore to shipping condition as I expected. I did a restore when I installed a 500GB RAID array for a clean start. I didn't need to load any drivers to recognize the array, which is good, but when restore completed I noticed the system settings had changed (background, screensaver, etc.) and some software, such as the DVD veiwer, was no longer on the system. That's kinda sloppy considering how easy it is to make a restore disk yourself. 2) The power supply is the one hardware weekness at 300W. Enough to run the system as configured, but it will need to be replaced if you plan on upgrading or adding new hardware. 3) It could have included more storage space for a media center, but plenty of room to upgrage...with a new PSU.

Other Thoughts: Great little system with room for growth. I've built all my own systems in the past, but ABS didn't make me feel like a loser by giving me parts I likely would have bought anyway. If I buy another pre-built, I'll definitely check them out again, but next time I'll have a fuller wallet.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I can only add to the good reviews that other people have left. These are really solid machines at a great price. I first discovered this manufacturer when I was looking to upgrade my wife's machine. When I got ready to upgrade mine, I knew exactly where to look and what I was getting.

Cons: none to speak of, really.

4 out of 5 eggsAbs Awesome V2 52

Pros: Runs CS:s at 40 fps on low and every thing maxed with Anisotropic 4x AA none runs at 19-24 fps.Plays Bf2 with no lag on low and you can enable some things on high with out lag. Runs the stock CPU at 2009 Mhz /2.01 Ghz

Cons: Only read 960 Mb of ram but i think its because of the onboard not realy a con though.Also the 2nd cd drive bay cover came broke (wont close all the way missing spring) but it stays up except when you open the top cd tray it knocks it down.

Other Thoughts: 300W PSU so concider replacing it over time

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great system for the price. I was a little concerned about some of the problems other buyers had but I have had no problems.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I priced out the parts and you could put a system like this together for about the same price, but not a whole lot less. It has been tested, os loaded and comes with a service agreement.

4 out of 5 eggsnot too bad for the on sale price

Pros: good price/performance ratio
gig of ram
fairly expanadble

Cons: inT GFX blow but other than that, nto a huge amount to be surprised by.

Other Thoughts: the motherboard should run an ATI card just about as good as a nVidia card, so go for it bro.
