Pros: Well yeah while it works it's great but less than 2 years for $190 cmon there's better for less.
Cons: Bought in Nov '10 it just croaked on me May '12 Somthing happened at the bottom corners of the screen and now it looks like screen burn of about 3/4" high and 4" long on both corners runing horizontally toward each other. Funny one looks like an aligator sorta and the other one looks like a platipus. No color in those spots anymore just shadow black burnt screen look.
Other Thoughts: This is what you get for going CHEAP or buying a non-name brand and best quality by the people. I'll never buy another one of these and not even going to waste my time and MORE money shipping it back to the MFG for what could be 6mos until another issue with it. I always say when it's gone it's gone no use bringing it back to life (unless it's a family member of course). ;)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's basically you get what you pay for pot luck on this model. Some got working models when delivered and I got a POGar that had a broken part that dropped out of it when installed in my computer.
If you can get one for $54.99 that works get it even with the ripoff I encountered it is still fast and you do get nearly all of the 1tb storage.
Cons: DOA and first ripoff from Newegg on return postage cost to me. Thus I lost any savings I was going to get on this model which was $54.99 when I bought it. The return postage cost ME another $10
Other Thoughts: In all fairness the 2nd one they sent does work but I've had to partition it in half 500gb per partition. It took them over a week to return the 2nd one to me but considering it was christmas and new years weeks I guess that's about par.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I too couldn't build this thing myself for the price it is at now. This is a steal and really fast. I didn't have any issues that a handful of others have written about. The Vista registration code is on the side. I don't have any lose or flaky switches. It powered up right out of the box. I immediately loaded Service Pak 2 for it and it's been running games great ever since. With the rebate savings I got I went ahead and ordered some Patriot 2gb 7 latency memory sticks so I would have 6gb of memory instead of just 3.
I ran Rome Total War and Medieval 2 Total War with 10000 units on the map and it ran flawlessly without lag.
Don't know why some think the 9800GT video card is slow or something this thing blazes away all games I toss at it without graphics lag or chop. I think some people just think it has to be the latest card there just isn't anything out there that the $500 or $250 cards run any better than this 9800GT in EYE resolution.
Cons: Because the video card and the hard drive are across to one another the cables for the hard drive won't plug in very easily. What this builder of this one did was put the hard drive in SIDEWAYS lol and bent the drive holder tray in doing so. I just took it out and dropped the hard drive down one tray and the power cables and sata cables fit just fine.
Other Thoughts: If you want a high end system without the high end price this is the computer you want. Also, Gigabyte has a pdf download on how to overclock this puppy and it's so easy a caveman could do it. I'm already running at 4ghz.READ FULL REVIEW
