Summary: For the price point this computer offered a bevy of features for a home pc. Easy to setup, incredibly responsive, while being ultra quiet. Although I'm satisfied with it, there was a issue with the computer freezing intermittently while beeping 6 times, searching provided multiple possible solutions with non being definitive. In the end the issue seemed to have resolved itself, and it's worked perfectly ever since. 3.5 stars.
Summary: BOUGHT THIS COMPUTER BECAUSE IT WAS THE MOST POWERFUL UP TO DATE COMPUTER ON THE MARKET AT THE TIME I BOUGHT IT (NOV 2012) THE COMPUTER I WAS USING WAS 13 YEARS OLD AND WORKING WELL, BUT NEEDED MORE POWER FOR PROCESSING PICTURES OF LARGER FORMATS. IT CAME WITH WINDOWS 8 AND MUCH TO MY SURPRISE, NONE OF THE PROGRAMS I WAS USING WOULD WORK WITH WINDOWS 8. SO NOW I HAVE TWO COMPUTERS SITTING SIDE BY SIDE AS IT WOULD TAKE TOO MUCH MONEY TO ADD THE NEW PROGRAMS.
Summary: For the price, this is a powerful computer. It has a large hard drive, fast processor, and the video card can handle some 3D video games. There are plenty of USB ports for expansion, and there are PCI express slots and drive bays available inside the case. The styling is nothing to write home about, but at least it's not ugly. Overall, the hardware gets 2 thumbs up. The problem here is Windows 8.
Summary: I bought this computer instead of making one as I usually do. After 3 days the mother board crapped out. Dell had a tech knocking on my door on the 2nd day after that. With the unit back on line I got rid of windows 8 and replaced it with windows 7. Windows 8 is the worst piece of crap I have ever seen, I also got rid of the junk video card that came with it. It just could'nt do the job.
Summary: I like the PC and it's a good value, but it has horrible ventilation. My video card overheats like crazy. The fan supplies and venting are inadequate for the machine. I currently have the cover off and a small house fan blowing on the board! I have not had any freezes since taking it off. I bought a couple aftermarket fans, but the power supplies are not compatible with the power supplies on the machine.
Summary: I should start off by saying I bought this computer refurbished. I've had it for a little over a month now and it runs great...for the most part. The one drawback seems to be the video card. While watching YouTube videos or others I will get a message saying the video driver has failed or the blue screen failure. Some of the gaming graphics took some tinkering with the settings to get right as well.
Summary: System seems to be typical Dell. Runs fine right out of the box and was easy to set-up. But I hate Win 8 environment - needs major tweaks. If you get this system, try going to Dell and getting Win 7 loaded on it, if they will.
Summary: Totally good include price. Especially it is the best when I edit hd videos. I dont kniw abot playing game. But it has a little of problem adding extra hard drive inside. Only two power cables are in side.
