Confirmed purchaser Music & entertainment fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The sysrem runs extremely well. smooth, quick, able to keep lots of windows open without noticable slow down, in terms of running this is the best PC I've owened.
Bad points:
The biggest problem I've encontered is with the hardware; the on/off button is a nightmare, its strangely designed and can take multiple presses in order to power up the system. As of yet it has never failed to come on, but theres always a worry that one day it will stop working completely. Its ashame because, as said, the system runs great, but this really silly design flaw ltes it down somewhat, in that if you fork out for a system like this, when you press the on button, you kind of expect it to come o sraight away, not have to repaetedly press it like your franticly trying to deliver a message in morse code.

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Relatively fast machine, despite the slightly antiquated processor. Quite easy to set up
Bad points:
Flimsy build quality. The monitor switch (about the only moving part on that component) packed up straightaway, the switch to the PC is malfunctioning frequently and deteriorating; so I can already foresee the hassle of having to take it in for repair.

Ruth, Eastbourne General user

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
The slimline design is good.
Bad points:
Initially I thought the power button was faulty but as this is the second model I've had I think they must all be like it. You have to push and hold for the power to come on, but this is not made clear anywhere. My first model was from another supplier and was wifi, I returned it as I the mouse stopped working. My second model has a problem also this time with sound, the sound is very low and as you are able to play DVD's on it the sound quality is really bad. I'm hoping it will be replaced. Fingers crossed.

David, Kikrcaldy, Fife General user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent value. Bright monitor screen. No bulky computer box or endless cables. Very smart looking.
Bad points:
Being 65yrs old an easy step by step set up guide would have been handy. I still havent used the wireless mouse yet! The on/off power switch on monitor and computer box a bit flimsy. Sometimes you need a few attempts before power switches on.
