Not worth the money


After 2 + months of WIN8 I want to go back to WIN7 but you cannot downgrade or remove WIN8 due to ASUS non support and MS BIOS controls...unless you run killdisk and wipe the slate clean you are stuck.

Excellent machine


Make sure to turn off bloat-ware at start up. Otherwise, it is an excellent machine. Beats Alienware's equal but higher priced product.

Good machine for the price


I have used this machine for almost one month. It is fast but not a screamer. As far as other features, the one outstanding is the load of USB ports. I have had 2 instances of the BSOD related to outdated video drivers. Thus, I am happy but not elated...

Solid deal, just as advertised


Computer came and worked out of the box. Amazing that such powerful desktops have become commodity items. I would have preferred a a 7200rpm HD rather than 5400, but this is fast enough. With 16GB RAM there's not a lot of page swapping. VERY QUIET,...

Great Value


I would like to have it bundled with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 in stead of Windows Home Premium, but other than that it is exceptional value and super quiet.

Great System, cheap PSU


Big Asus fan, but sad to see a $20 power supply, upgraded to a 500W and put in a HD 7770 video card.Running 3 monitors, no issues.This system is supposed to be a gamer system, but we use it for work apps

Great, I would get it again


I've had the product for a month. Worked right away. Programs and installs are very fast. The disk drive needs to be ejected using your OS not the button provided -- not sure if that is what is meant to happen. But, that does not bother me and it is as...
