Pros: Very simple to assemble, I let my 6-year old daughter install the 4GB of memory and the 2.5" SSD. No moving parts inside, so it is dead silent. If left with unobstructed ventilation, at room temperature, the processor cores run about 120-degrees Fahrenheit. Win7-64bit boots into the desktop in about 35 seconds. Drivers went in flawlessly, all available at manufacturer website. Plenty of USB ports. Plays video and like a champ. But the purpose I built this system for is to remotely manage the USB programming of my Point-of-Sale systems. I ended up with a lot more than I needed. I have begun using it to host my printers and business accounting & inventory as well.
Cons: Fair warning, the internal wifi adapter with this system is total weak sauce. If you intend to go wireless, just save yourself a bit of time and trouble, buy a USB Wi-Fi device in advance. Only worth about half an egg in my opinion, but is the only issue I have had. Although I should mention there are no 64-bit video drivers available (yet?). Not a game ender, but something to look for later.
Other Thoughts: Be aware this is a barebones system. You will need to buy memory and a hard drive to get this system to be operational. This is not hard, Newegg has exactly what you need and it is easy to find. I did not install an optical drive, but there is a slot for one if your needs require one, or you can go external USB.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Bright, clean, clear, and colorful. Excellent price for the quality of this display. Plays videos, displays documents and spreadsheets , and games perfectly. The LED back lighting is not harsh. Some monitors with cathode lighting can cause headaches, but that is all a thing of the past now.
Cons: The foot on the base is small and easily slides around. The display does not pivot, but it does tilt up and down.
Other Thoughts: This is a very light weight display. That could be desirable if on a swivel mount, but could also make it easy to knock over unless weighted down or mounted.READ FULL REVIEW
