Pros: I could go on and on...easy set-up, game controller is simple if you think like a 6-year-old. I get it.
Cons: Zero here.
Overall Review: Wish I would have waited for the bundle...more gigs plus the new goodies and for only forty bucks more.
Don't have time to complain, though. I'm enjoying it too much!
rma process was painless, as usual.
Cons: 1st indication of trouble on 1st boot. Error: audio not working. Tried to download drivers, etc, but none available. If I plugged in a device (headphone, spkr, etc.) got black screen and had to do hard shut-down. Tried many fixes over several hours, but this sucker is tu. Best guess: faulty mobo (has integrated a/v). Should have built my own!
Overall Review: In the past, the term Chinese Junk referred to a vessel of peculiar rig and hull form...now it is a description of a country's gross national product.
Pros: Lots of potential for the price...if it worked! Case is cool. Room for expansion. Cables, etc are tidy. PSU is adequate. Would order another fan (there is a space for it).
Cons: Blue screen right out of the box.
Used sys restore disk 3 times, would start to load windows, then back to the blue screen. Tried every back door I could think of.
Prior to firing it up, I ckd all components, cables, connections and everything looked good.
In my experience, if it doesn't work out of the box, there are bound to be more issues down the line. If it's broke, don't fix it. Send it back!
Overall Review: Emailed CS, they gave me the runaround. Called CS and issue was resolved immediately (RMA). Better to talk to a live person, methinks.
Pros: None, so far.
Cons: DOA. Started to boot, then went to fatal blue screen. Tried sys restore disc 3 times, but every boot only got as far as "windows loading" message, then puked. I'd give this unit zero eggs if I could. Consider the 1 as a goose egg.
Overall Review: What a bummer to waste all that set-up time...not to mention the anticipation of a new machine. All for naught.
