Pros: Looks nice out of box. Lights are really cool! Very quiet machine.

Cons: Video card bad on arrival. Couldn't boot except in safe mode. Returned for refund.

Overall Review: Looked new and very cool with all the lights. After bios screen, colored pixels appeared everywhere. Then, black screen. Never went to windows. So rebooted in safe mode. Found yellow triangle next to "NVIDIA" in Device Manager. Error 43. In summary, this computer only worked if I DISABLED the NVIDIA RTX 3070 LOL. That's the only reason to have it! Sending back for a refund. I saw other DOA reviews, but took a chance. Now Christmas morning sucks for my kid. I'm not going to chance it with a replacement...and unfortunately, most gaming PC's are sold out. UPDATE: I indeed got a refund, after a month. I was concerned, because you only get a refund if they find that the computer is defective. Well, they also claim to have tested prior to shipping. So what if they tested it the same way, and refused my refund, I thought. I was on pins and needles for a while. At least they came through, but I highly doubt any of these computers are "tested". Why so many DOA then?
