Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Other Thoughts: 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.
