Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The computer is very fast and powerful.
1 terabyte hard drive and 6GB of memory.
It was fairly easy to set up.
Pre-installed anti-virus and firewall. (Norton).
Windows 7 itself is very good. I'd always been used to using Windows XP, but Windows 7 is much easier and the interface looks better.
Hardware drivers are downloaded and installed automatically as soon as you connect them to the PC.
The DVD drive works with either +RW or -RW disks.
There are several USB ports near the front of the PC.
Bad points:
I couldn't get the wireless keyboard (included in the package) to work, so I'm using a USB keyboard for the time being, which is what I'm used to. I have to say, I've never been overly keen on the idea of wireless keyboards/mice, as I'm afraid the batteries might run out while I'm in the middle of an important task! The wireless mouse is working OK though.
My old scanner isn't compatible, but this is to do with Windows 7 rather than the computer itself.

Manufacturer's Description

The new Packard Bell ixtreme desktops radiate with style and bring brilliant Full HD multimedia to your home. Smart features make your overall computing experience more intuitive and convenient than ever.

Radiant, functional design
Soft curves and a glossy finish give the new ixtreme desktops a luxurious appeal. A glowing white light radiates from the chassis, enhancing depth and creating an eye-catching effect.

This lighting effect can be easily activated or deactivated with a button click. The illuminated brand logo and edges complete the classy look and add elegance to any environment.

Brilliant multimedia
Be dazzled by Full HD multimedia thanks to the smart combination of a turbo-charged processor, the latest graphics cards, and user-friendly utilities.

Whether you want soothing music or riveting action, the new ixtreme brings you brilliant entertainment on demand. Create a personal theater in your own home by connecting the ixtreme to a cinematic big-screen display via the HDMI® port, and enhance and edit photos using Adobe® Photoshop® Elements.

Organize and preserve your memories for generations to come on a DVD, and share your files up to 10 times faster than before by selecting a model featuring USB 3.0 ports.

Smart and convenient features
Download and keep everything you want in the ixtreme’s vast storage space — up to three hard disk drives each up to 2 TB, plus an optional easy-swap HDD.

A recessed deck on top provides a convenient area for placing devices and other items. A handy cable management system neatly hides cables, and commonly used media ports are in front for intuitive access.

What’s more, you’ll appreciate two special buttons for extra convenience: the PhotoFrame button to quickly display images from an HDD or memory card, and the My BackUp button for fast, one-press backups of your important files.
