Great Case

 

I understand that there is the $$$ factor but come on, there are better fans that will stay running longer than 110 days. I have personally seen computers inside fertilizer plants that have run 3 years with no problems!

Computer is awesome and performs as expected

CPU fan has died TWICE in 8 months

5/5 now that I cooled it down

 

I purchased this PC to replace my aged 2007 model from another manufacturer, which treated me well but was, well, aged. I am not a power user or a gamer but I do some light photo and video editing so a bit of performance is in order. This machine has...

Good performance for the price point. English speaking manufacturer tech support

Weak CPU cooler

Avatar Gaming Computer

 

Overall this machine is perfect for those who desire to play all of the fantastic games that have come out in the past and pay a great price for it! The few cons noted can easily be fixed if desired, but for the price everything seems pretty on par. I...

This computer is a gaming PC right out of the box as advertised. It plays games such as Skyrim, GTA IV, borderlands 2, and more games flawlessly from the last generation on high quality. The case is very spacious for plenty of upgrades, plus there is...

Although this computer is a beast for its price one should be aware that there are a few issues ; 1) the power supply, being 450 watts, is a bit small but it does well for the specs that come with the computer ; 2) If you are looking to play games that...

Decent startup for the price

 

A very decent package which will allow you to enjoy most of your games on High graphics settings. Very easy to upgrade with lots of spare room in the case

Will need to upgrade for any next gen games coming out (2014-2015). Specifically the power supply i found was very lacking as well as the graphics card

Very Bad

 

Don't buy this machine because you'll never get help if it breaks this is an immoral company.

The machine worked for six months after purchase and I was able to run my games on full spec

The CPU crashed and customer service never helped me even though I have a one year warranty they gave me the runaround about sending me an order ticket which they refused to send so I could never get serviced. Some days the customer service line is...

Still going strong

 

Still runs as good as new, even after almost a year of owning it. Never had one single problem with it. Ever ; Games like planetside 2, dayz standalone, eurotruck simulator 2 all run on high with no problems. I really, like REALLY love this rig and is...

Only 2 usb ports on the front, not a big issue since theres more in the back, but its kind of annoying

Good, fast, machine, quality build

 

I haven't decided about Windows 8 yet. It has some good features, but it is pretty clearly a kludgy effort to unite two different OS strategies. I will try 8.1 and see if that helps.

Not sure if this is a pro or a con, but my first version was DOA. Great effort by Avatar support to fix it, but required a RMA from Newegg. RMA was easy, and computer was replaced within a week at no cost. Still, having to do the return cost an egg ;...

As mentioned in other reviews, the video card blocks the other slots, so adding a card (I wanted to add a USB3 card) can't happen
