Barry, Lancing General user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
QUIET, easy use, simple set-up, efficient machine (equivalent in the past to a machine around 3 times the price - as was my previous Desktop PC). Good upgrade possibilities for the future. Sleek black tower, very nice visually, and performs well.
Bad points:
A version of the many incarnations of the e-machines ET1831, so precise technical details for upgrade purposes not so easily available.

kerry, london General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The person it was bought for has very little computer experience so we wanted something easy to use and was quite basic but reliable. It was one of the cheapest desk top computers we could find with a trusted vendor. It so far is doing what we bought it for.
Bad points:
Windows 7 has had some compatibility problems, so far it's not an issue but I'm sure there will be more hills to climb.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great product for the price and really easy to install everything you need.
Bad points:
Comes bundled with 32 and 64 bit versions of Internet Explorer - the 64 bit version can cause some Compatability Issues with some sites but I just stick to using the 32 bit version.
