Overall Review: Absolutely fantastic so far and I am very hopeful that it will continue to impress. I am a modeling/simulation person and not a gamer but the end goal is very similar :) I can model my science research while I am traveling as if I am working at a workstation. Best purchase with your money for this purpose.
Overall Review: Is there anything such as super resolution :)? This product offers you a great resolution for your purchase. I am amazed. I have no issues with the control button placed at the back.
Pros: Has been just over a month, working great
Overall Review: Excellent price, excellent product
Pros: If you need a workstation that would be able to run your simulations and still not get very expensive, it is the ideal choice. These workstations could be sold for over 5K a few years ago. Almost comes to the same price if you wanted to purchase RAMs yourself. It is also a great choice for those who do not have a lot of experience in getting together a workstation.
Cons: Ok, the technology got a little old. Let us say that your simulation will be run in 1 hr with the newest workstations, this product could take 1,5hrs but if you do not mind the waiting time too much, it is a great choice. Even though the sellers says that they come with Win 7, apparently they recently started installing Win 10, so be prepared for that. Some of the drivers might cause issues and that will give you blue screen -> update the drivers, especially install the video card driver yourself after uninstalling the already available one if you encounter the same watchdog violation problem.
Overall Review: Yes, I would very much recommend this product. I honestly do not understand why anyone would bother purchasing or building the workstations with the most recent technological components available. They get terribly expensive at the cost of only little improvement. Of course, as a computational physicist, this is my personal point of view. My simulations do not require a lot of GPU computation or CAD activity. The scenario might be completely different for those who need GPU. Still, if you can manage, you can get 3 of these workstations at the price of a new one with the most recent technology. If you can let these three run in parallel, I guarantee you that this product would be the best solution for you.
