Summary: I have had this computer for little over 2 years. It served me very well as office PC. With an added 128GB SSD it is blazing fast (any program starts in less than a second), but even the stock HDD was fast enough. When I installed it for the first time, I remember that I was amazed how quiet it was.
Summary: I bought this PC used although practically new for about 200$. The hard drive had given out on the previous owner (I don't know specifics). I love to troubleshoot so this PC was a godsend. It's quite sexy and the speakers are very useful for I don't use headphones. This PC is great, in my opinion.
Summary: Freezes every time I use it. Every time, multiple times a day.I do play games, like card games and hidden object games, nothing heavily reliant on graphics. Got a lightning hit and even tho I have a surge protector the network card fried.
Great at first but DIED shortly after - NOT RELIABLE

Summary: At first, this computer was super fast and not bad for its price. It was working awesomely for about the first 10 months. HOWEVER, after that it started to crash. I've had this computer for only a year and a half and it is dieing on me!
Summary: A couple of these machines showed up at work this summer, and I was so impressed I just ordered one for myself. I have been using it to do some pretty memory and cpu intensive calculations (FEM stuff with Comsole Multiphysics) and it eats it up like a champ.
Amazing System , Great Performance and Price, not a gaming PC but a Great Media Center System.

Summary: Excellent System, using as Media Center in the Living Room, Plenty of power for Video and Audio Playback, not for Gaming!!! Upgraded dvd with a SATA Bluray drive, augmented the Ram from 4gb to 8gb, Bought a USB Wireless n300 adapter and Bought a wireless keyboard, all from amazon.com, I stream music...
Summary: I've had this system for over three years and it's performed spectacularly without a hitch. The only downsides are those that everybody capable of reading knew before they bought it: The system comes in a very small case, which means a conveniently-tiny footprint but also not much room for upgrading...
Summary: I bought this computer from J&R Music and Computer World. The service from them is very good, I had no reason to call them after I ordered it. I live in Mexico and the computer arrived in perfect condition.
Summary: UPDATE: For $500 this was a great value. For $999 it most definitely is not. My original review: I was looking for a simple (not for gaming) Windows PC. Since I am no longer a hobbyist when it comes to building computers, I really was looking for something that would work well, have a small...
Summary: I agree with the other reviewer that the DVD drive is hard to open so if u need to use it often, think twice before buying. we have owning this machine for about a year now and it has performed well, decent speed and good at muititasking, core 2 quad is a little outdated but is very powerful also...
