emma, manchester Keen gamer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
i bought this for my son's birthday, who is a online gamer. this is perfect for him, really fast and fits all his online and normal games, the games don't lag and also there is enough space to add to the tower, ie memory, bigger graphic card, but i don't see this happening for us as it has everything my son needs.
Bad points:
the sound system, even though it was ok, my son bought separate speakers for a better sound in his game play.

Confirmed purchaser Keen gamer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Convenient access for card slots and various ports, attractive design, much fewer crashes when gaming online and very fast performance.
Bad points:
Not compatible with certain hardware like Microsoft Lifechat headset; not much support available; could not put blu-ray drive from old pc in because access to the free drive trays was too difficult - only one side panel can be removed, and it's on the opposite side to the drive trays, so adding new drives is only possible via external ports.

Good points:
A decent computer for the price, runs everything I needed to to run and still could do more. No problems with it, works fine since purchase - worth the money.
Bad points:
First thing I did upon getting it was open it up and turn off the lights, the thing it like a Christmas tree. It's also the size of a small child but I've been told that's good for allowing things to say cool. The fan is a tad loud but I was used to a laptop before.

Tommy, Newcastle upon Tyne Keen gamer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant. Very fast. Excellent value for money. Would recommend to anyone. All of the games that I play, mostly internet based which a lot of computers struggle with, has absolutely no problems what so ever, even at full resolution.
Bad points:
Slight build up of dust on the top, easily wipeable but still a hassle.
