Pros: Fast transfer rate.
Power indicator light isn't too bright.
Cons: completely smooth bottom allows it to shift and glide on the desk surface.
The power plug will not go completely into the slot. There is about 2/5 of the metal plug that sticks out and absolutely will not go inside.
Pros: Easy setup.
Excellent graphics capability.
Front usb ports are convenient.
The case allows for the addition of 4 more large fans.
And of course, the price.
Cons: The fan on the case is a bit on the loud side.
Graphics card included doesn't quite match the one in the picture and doesn't have a fan (but is still a 5570 nonetheless.)
Power supply is minimal and should be swapped before any other hardware upgrades.
Other Thoughts: Despite my bickering about the PSU and fan noise, the only reason this isn't a five-egg rating is the fact that the GPU is different from the picture. (please correct that newegg)
For those who want an example of it's graphics capability it'll play Bioshock2 on max settings, full 1080p resolution and still get around 40-50 fps.
And if anyone is curious about manufacturers,
The RAM is made by Corsair.
The hard drive is made by Hitachi.
The GPU is made by HIS.
Do keep in mind that this computer is a mere $500, so don't compare it to the $1000+ setups. But it will run most games you throw at it with ease.
