Did not work when first set up and getting a refund was a pain
1 August 2013
Summary: Did not work when first set up and getting a refund was a pain, Amazon would not assist or help with any of the negotiations with the seller even though the computer was purchased on this site
Summary: There are many better websites to buy gaming computers.... I bought this off amazon as a rookie mistake. It couldn't handle many games and crashed when I tried to run games such as dota 2 and smite. those games are not high detailed and if anything just above low detailed. If you want to buy a gaming computer online I recommend tiger direct or new egg. They specialize in selling computer equipment.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS COMPUTER!!!! The shipped Power Supply does not reach described Wattage. Note even half , fails Safty reqs and damages your computer because of it. If they skimped so much on this what do you think about the other parts?? Dont beleive , take the part name of the PSU and google search it , I highly suggest the website hardware secrets!!!
Summary: GREAT!! It lasted only 8 weeks?? It ran fine from the day I set it up until yesterday when it began to arbitrarily shut down on its own....at this point, (and I'm a 20-year IT professional with desktop support experience)I can tell that the m/b has a heat issue which is causing the sensor to trip and shut down...if I allow it to cool completely for 60+ minutes, I can get 10 minutes of up time before it fails again.
Summary: ... I had to replace keyboard mouse and power supply myself Their warranty is backedup... by them stalling then replacing the powersupply with another that doesn't work the cost of postage on my end makes their warranty useless ...here is Better Business Bureau link ABOUT CyberpowerPC [....
Summary: I purchased the CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra GUA250 from Amazon several weeks ago as I was looking (at the time) for a suitable computer for personal use. While Amazon shipping was speedy and quick, it was the product itself that disappointed. Upon removing the tower unit from the packaging. I could hear pieces rattling around. Looking through vent holes, I could see that a large black fan was clearly detached and rattling around.
Summary: CyberpowerPC failed in assembly big time on this one. They forgot to secure/screw in the motherboard to the case. During shipping, the video card was the only thing holding it in place. The item *was* properly package, but since the board was not attached, it slid around inside the case; scratching the breadboard/motherboard circuits to the point of destruction. The video card bent off and was basically destroyed.
Summary: Outside of the fancy looking case, this machine is severely underpowered for the cost. a GT520 graphics card isn't even a gaming card it is so low. Buy one of the AMD A8 or A10 machines on Futureshop at much less. They are much more powerful gaming machines than this. I don't know why cyberpower puts such low video cards in these, calling it a gaming PC is false advertising.
Summary: It appears that I received the lemon. The hard drive failed. It's in for repairs and I've only had it for two weeks. These things happen but the true test will be how fast they repair it and if it'll cost me anything for them to do it. When it was working it did function well.
