J, Hertfordshire

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Really good value for money. Nice size screen and small PC case are a real plus. Looks nice and sleek and has plenty of features including a generous number of USB ports (9) in total, which are easily accessible. Very quiet operation - especially the cooling fan. Quite a fast performer for a budget PC.
Bad points:
Heavy screen that appears to have very little adjustment. This lack of asjustment, especially height adjustment means that the screen sits low on a table or desk and may need to be raised up for comfortable viewing. Naturally the quality of the materials and build is lower than more expensive models, but it does make the case and other components more vulnerable to accidental damage. One specific example is the door cover for the DVD-RW. This is very flimsy and may well break before the unit life is up. The mouse feels very lightweight and cheap, but it does the job and it is a plus that it is an optical mouse with a scroll wheel. The keyboard too, as a whole, feels cheap and lightweight. However, it has flat keys with a nice feel. These are fairly minor 'bad' points for what is generally a very good purchase.

Ian, Chelmsford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great, compact unit, for the basic user who wants it not to take up too much space, like myself. Computer itself easy to set up (although see bad points below for connecting peripherals - software issue rather the computer itself). Good value package for the price, although be aware that, whilst PC World plug the fact it has a decent sound card they do not mention you need to seperate speakers to actually get any sound out of the unit.
Bad points:
Vista has to be the worst operating programme I have encountered in 30 yers of being a computer user! I still cannot print from the unit because Vista will not allow the removal of my USB printer from the system following a set up issue. This is despite the best efforts of a friend who is a very well paid computer programmer with all the qualifications, licences and many years experience. This appears, from web forums, to be a very common problem so get the unit with Windows 7 when it is out (I eagerly await my update in the hope it solves the problem)

We searched for this product high and low,
from House of Fraser to Tesco,
no one is selling it, we're sorry to say,
not 420 retailers nor anyone on eBay,
but please don't worry even if it hurts,
you can look for alternatives or
