E-machines computer

Bob H, Amazon
8 February 2011
  • Summary: The computer is good however I am old school and miss written instructions and documentation. It was very difficult getting started. My conversations with e-machines were less than satisfactory, at one point they told me I might have a software problem and that was not covered under the warranty and I would have to pay for assistance even though the computer was brand new.

not worth the money!

Tanya, Amazon
27 December 2010
  • Summary: this product was delivered to the wrong house not even in a cardboard box, the lady who had gotten it could have taken it and I never would have known any better. Also, it runs like crap and I am sorry I ever bought it. It lags big time, which is pathetic for a brand new computer.

Good computer with a strange quirk

Alla Goltsman "SmallBusinessClicks", Amazon
8 November 2010
  • Summary: Basically, I am delighted with my new computer. The price was such that I could not resist buying. But it has a very strange oddity. Every now and then the clock gets 3 hours late. I fix it, it's OK for a while and then it happens again. Sometimes I fool myself thinking that I have extra 3 hours to read email garbage, but then I come to my senses and fix it. I've been around computers for the last 20 years. Never heard about this type of quirk.

No power to hard drive???

Flip, Amazon
16 September 2010
  • Summary: The computer works fine now. When I got It I had problems with the boot up. So I tried to contact eMachines help desk. Still waiting for a response 2 month later...I'll try again today. No bootable or recovery disk in the box.It would be nice to have the Windows 7 OS just in case. but besides that it works great fast computer.Power saver is a great feature it looks like it s off just that green light on.

Great Value at an Incredable Low Price

T. Laskawski, Amazon
15 August 2010
  • Summary: This e-machine computer is one of the best computers on the market. Talk about the price as well. Around $330 for this kind of computer which has 500GB of memory. You just cannot beat that price. You really don't need a brand name computer because this one works perfect. I have had it for about two months now and it was the greatest buy I have ever made. The computer goes fast and have had not problems with it. Windows 7 is a great upgrade from Vista and works so well.

Very pleased with this eMachine ET 1831-05

Jeb Baker, Amazon
18 July 2010
  • Summary: If it was a new car it would be just a plain old generic silver sedan model, no high end quad core or super high capacity hard drive; but the machine is quiet, and stable. And it's probably still faster than most high end models that were purchased more than 5 or 6 years ago! Tech support was decent too, and fairly quickly solved an issue I had where an updated video driver intermittently killed the ps/2 mouse port (of all things!

E-machine

Linda W. Fielding "HalfWhit", Amazon
26 June 2010
  • Summary: This is more a recommendation and laudits for Amazon rather than the E-machine...I received my e-machine in record time (when told it would be over 2 weeks I got it in 2 days from Amazon). I uploaded, downloaded and began my usage. On day two when I downloaded my Print Shop 22 program it all crashed. I KNEW it was the Print Shop program. I had also connected my old hard drive via an external hard drive device.

support is atrocious!

John Little, Amazon
24 June 2010
  • Summary: This machine is 2 days old, and I'm checking out the software that came with it. I tried to use the MS Works Task Launcher, which requires a product key. I input the product key from the side of the case, and it tells me it's an invalid key. Check the number, put it in again, same thing. I decide to send an email to emachines support. On the web browser (IE) that came with the machine, there's a link to emachine support. I send a report, using the form on that link.
