Pros: Seems SUPER FAST, Graphics look great, LOVE the case.
Cons: POWER SUPPLY!!!
Other Thoughts: This is my updated review.
I received one of these machines and thought it had a problem with Windows 8 sleep mode, so I sent it back to Newegg.
Now I'm thinking that they just come with bad power supplies! My second machine was great at first. It didn't appear to have any problems with sleep mode at all. But then it started making this weird buzzing sound, and shortly thereafter shut off. Upon further inspection, I noticed that the fan wasn't turning on the power supply and that the PSU was very hot. The PSU was also the source of the mystery buzzing sound.
I was on the phone with CyberPower at the time and the person I was speaking with informed me that it would take 4 DAYS to get me a new power supply. I have been without a desktop computer for about 6 weeks, so 4 more days wasn't an option for me. I put a Diablotek 450 W PSU in it that I had, and it seems to have solved the problem completely.
Soooo...I do recommend the machine. BUT I HIGHLY recommend that you purchase a decent power supply to put in it immediately.
Pros: Beautiful case, FAST - when it wasn't in sleep mode and I could actually use it.
Cons: Windows 8 sleep mode! It would enter sleep/power saving mode even when I was using it! Couldn't wake it back up AT ALL! Even a hard reboot wouldn't bring it out of sleep. Had to take power away from the power supply and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then plug it back in and it would come out of sleep mode.
Other Thoughts: The computer was fast and flawless...until it went to sleep. I'm hoping that this is just a flaw with this particular machine. I'm sending it back for another one and will update my review as necessary.READ FULL REVIEW
