Confirmed purchaser Keen gamer

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Good Spec, If it worked
Bad points:
Huge
Overall Rating 3 because the power supply cuts out as soon as you need to use the graphics card, this due to it having a much less than worthy power supply, ruined the machine.
Dreadful noise, so loud
Software was all out of date by a long way
Due to it not working half the time, didnt have it for long

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
fast CPU, good graphics card, good size box, plenty of space for.more drives. handles Windows 7 well.
Bad points:
so much useless software on it, took ages to remove it all. billiard AntiVirus was useles. ( I got a Trojan in an hour!) once you remove it and install something decent and free,like AVG, everything is ok.
also not enough SATA connectors on the mb, 4, so has to swap the SATA eve for an IDE one to free a port up.

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
good hardware setup for money.
Bad points:
The ati Radeon 4500 series graphics card causes blue screen issues when ever I try to play any game, even if the requirements are well below the actual hardware set up. I either want the pc to be fitted with a new graphics card or a refund as I am a student who has invested the small amount of money he has for a pc that is needed for high graphic requirments which cannot perform to the spec that it is meant to.

Michael, Peacehaven, Sussex General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The machine is very fast and the screen shots excellent. A good machine overall and I am pleased I bought it.
Bad points:
No information at all came with it. I will have to make my own boot disk etc. in case of major failures. Speaking of failures the display card occasionally, and without warning, blacks out. It soon comes back on and a pop up screen says it had failed and has now fixed the fault. Until next time!! Could be a bad connection in the motherboard pci slot? The machine came with no floppy drive (these drives seem to be absent now) which is bad news because many of the programmes on my 'old' machine which I want to transfer can only be moved by floppy disc as it has only a CD player and no burner. There is a floppy socket on the motherboard but it doesn't seem to work. Finally, I do not care for Windows 7 - but I expect I'll get used to it!! I can't get Thunderbird to receive e-mails (send OK), so have to use Windows Live. Uggh!
