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. So now I'm using a wireless USB to connect to my wireless router, that was about $20 compared to a couple hundred for someome to tear it apart and replace the crappy network card.
Summary: Sadly, this computer just has too many problems to recommend. The cheap DVD drive has a flimsy sideways tray that physically hangs going in and out. You have to mash the button repeatedly before it will even try to eject; it will not burn anything without third-party software (which means it absolutely refuses to burn the recovery discs).
Summary: I purchased this - Gateway SX2800-01 Desktop PC based on reviews from other sites. Out of the box, the dvd/cd drive did not work. I tried live online support. I was sent to a website for a solution that assumed that I had added 3rd party software and had created my own issue. Really? I tried all of the steps. None worked. I got back online and was suggested the same site again !!! I got back online and was given a different link WHICH NO LONGER EXISTED !!!
Summary: Purchased this computer at best buy last week during the back to school sale. Brought it home and hooked it up and was surprised at how fast it was. When Windows and Norton did their automatic updates, they failed and I got an error message. I though nothing of this at the time. I tried to access m bank accounts and stocks and had no problem. ****BIG PROBLEM*** Now I started to worry!
