Summary: I chose this Gateway because I had a Gateway laptop for 5 years that worked very well. This pc, however, with all of the latest power and speed applications, is very slow and "clunky" I have added RAM to max it out and tweaked it to the best of my knowledge, it still remains slow to respond. I will go back to Dell desktops in the future.
Summary: Item arrived on time, and in perfect condition. Very happy with the product performance!!! Very nice looking too!! I waited a long time to decide, and feel I made the right choice. Adding comment, we were so pleased with the product, we purchased another one for my daughter. It arrived on time and in perfect condition.
Summary: This computer has had problem after problem. The biggest problem is the useless warranty. Gateway requires you to send the computer to Texas at your own expense to get a warranty repair. And then they send it back without fixing it. Being technically oriented, I managed to fix the first two problems, faulty USB ports (loose internal connector) and a BIOS issue (there was debris under the battery).
Summary: i have a cpu fan going out,computer is about 6 months old,the terrible customer support wanted me to send the computer in to fix a cpu fan,i told them i could install it myself.they told me i couldnt do that.i'll buy one myself and install it,not this cheap junk they used either.wont never but a gateway again.used to be a good computer until acer bought them out.
Summary: I have had this computer for about 10 months and have had zero problems with it. It's fast and is just what i need to get my work done. I love that it has lots of USB ports to help me plug in all my gadgets. Still runs like new.
Summary: I purchased this computer in January of 2011 and have had nothing but problems with it. I originally contacted Gateway and they insisted it was not the computer but rather the operating system. So I contacted Windows and after multiple phone calls and several hours of trying to find a solution, we opted to completely scrub the hard drive and start from scratch. Microsoft sent me replacement discs for Windows 7 and the computer is still not operating.
Summary: I had no problems with this system. Booted up the first and many future times w/o issue. Only boot issues I had was when I was playing with RAID BIOS options that I shouldn't have changed. System is fast, works great with handbrake. Cons - recovery media is not provided (needs to be created - 3 or 4 DVDs). No ESATA ports and the extra on board sata headers to not support esata (you can plug in a sata to esata bracket but it will not detect the device as a removable one).
Summary: It looks entirely new. Very lightweight. The cost was very small for the PC. The hard drive almost slipped out when I unboxed it. Very silent,fast, and efficient! Mouse and Keyboard were individually packaged inside the PC's Box. The computer scores 5.9 on Windows 7 Home Premium because of the hard drive speed. The Keyboard came with nice tape in between the keys to prevent dust. But only a total NOOB wouldn't understand the POP-IN Feature of the hard drive.
Summary: I've had this computer for about 5 months now, and it is still serving me just fine. What I am doing on it: -Games (more detail later) -Photo Editing -Video Editing We'll start with games. No surprise, it can run any Source game on pretty much max at +60 FPS, usually around 110-120 (L4D2, CSS, TF2). This also goes the same with games like Just Cause 2, Burnout Paradise.
Summary: First off, I like the DX series. I already purchased another DX series (without tv tuner) so I thought I would upgrade my wife's media computer with this purchase. Everything was great until it came time to get the tv tuner working. It wasn't recognized by Windows Media. After a phone call to Gateway, I'm told to do a full restore.
