Dave, GAINSBOROUGH Keen gamer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good machine for the price.
Bad points:
The Hard drive SATA cable had to be replaced - the one fitted was very loose and was not making a good connection, causing the PC to crash - SATA cable replaced. The graphics card was also loose, although if this was causing problems is not known. Both items were fixed by myself. On receipt, the packaging was badly damaged, carton crushed at one corner/edge, polystyrene in pieces it looked like the box had been dropped. This could have caused the problems described.

I have had ongoing issues with this computer, it seems to be on thing after another, just waiting on the next thing. Lost all confidence in using it. Bought to replace my 5 year old computer but still using it as it is more reliable.
