Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great gaming PC for the money, can run BF3 on ultra on a smaller screen (19") but once you get bigger (24") I needed to drop down to High instead as was getting a little gfx lag.
Can happily play Crysis 3 on high aswell!
The case is small and quiet, really quiet!
Case is very spacious inside with lots of extra bays etc
System gets a 7.2 on WindowsEI, everything is 7.5 apart from the CPU
Bad points:
Came with win8, which was the first thing I removed after scratching my head for 10 mins
The case is known for the side panel to become "stuck" according to ChillBlast support, who told me to use brute force and they'd happily replace the broken parts
There's a lack of SATA power cables, there's 2 and one is cabled tied behind the mobo

Iain, Portsmouth General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Having no bundled software is a good thing as most of it sponsored stuff that you have to delete. Smart looking PC, nice and quiet, Graphics card is great it has DVI and HDMI. Shopped around at deals and this beats anything out there I could find. Was not sure about Windows 8. Takes a little getting used to as it's more of an android feel to it. But am actually finding it really good, like it a lot.
Bad points:
Can't really think of any, only minor point maybe more front USB's but if that's the worst it gets then it's not doing too bad.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very good value for money. A speedy PC with bags of memory. In addition, it is capable of playing most modern games well.
Bad points:
There is no wireless adaptor installed so be prepared to buy one with this product if you need it.
