Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Set ups easy and straightforward. You realise why you are supplied with three blank disks as you go through the process. Super fast, with a brilliant wide screen. PC case has all the right knobs and whistles in all the right places - on the front and on top, for easy access for external drives, USBs etc and the essential ones for permanent connection out of sight on the back. Sleek, cool looking case with nice lighting detail in use or on stand by. i know I am endorsing my own buying decision, but I hope that I know enough on this subject to be objective.
Bad points:
I had read some criticism of the built-in speakers, so was not surprised that I found them wanting too. I now have external speakers in addition. My biggest issue in setting up was to install a new HD webcam. (Logitech C910). The PC crashed several times while trying to install it. The solution (and this is not a plug) was to subscribe to and install Driver Detective. It harmonised all the Vista 64X compatability issues across everything installed to the PC in a matter of minutes, including installing the webcam perfectly. After the PC itself, Driver Detective was the next 'best buy' of the experience.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Bought for price performance, and is exactly what I expected. I am very IT capable, so the ease of use/connectivity questions probably are not as importat to me. Biggest issue was porting from Vista to Windows 7, which is not a machine issue.

Bad points:
I'm not sure about the media expansion bay. Think I would prefer them mounted on the front of the machine, ditto for the USB ports. But its no big thing.
