Most Favorable Review

Great product (Once it was working)

Pros: Fast, quiet and looks pretty cool. This was a nice upgrade for my family and at a fair price. Tested World of Warcraft immediately and was very happy. I have never played WOW with such smooth graphics. Experience 45-60 FPS in battlegrounds and 60FPS in most other areas. Newegg shipped as advertised.

Cons: I originally bought this machine two weeks ago and it was DOA. Machine would power on but about all that happened was that lights and fans powered on (hd was spining too). My monitor didn't even turn on so I couldn't even check BIOS or other settings. I assumed it was a bad motherboard. I received a replacement sooner than I expected which was great but when I went to power up the machine nothing happened at all. I was able to quickly figure out that all that I needed to do was reattach the power switch and reset switch wires to the motherboard.

Overall Review: I would have given this machine a 5 rating except 2 out of two machines arrived in a non-working condition. I do really love this machine.

Great for my HP DV7 laptop
