Consumer review by: Valtmiller (newegg.com)

Keeps on Working

 

I have had this unit for 6 months now and have had ZERO issues with it. A very clean and quiet machine That keeps the mrs happy.

Clean, Compact and quiet

A littel squished in the unit when trying to replace and upgrade memory

EXCELLENT MACHINE

 

Great deal. Would recommend.

None so far

Satisfied - for now

 

I needed a relatively inexpensive computer in a hurry to replace one that died (fried motherboard). The refurbished EL1358G-51W was relatively inexpensive, arrived quickly and was in impeccable condition - the case looked new and the inside was...

I leave the computer on all the time, and after two days, it feels very warm. I don't need to upgrade the computer, but if you do - it isn't the best computer for you

Best Machine for the money

 

By far the best machine for the money

Only one video output and if you want to get a new card you are limited by the power supply. Not a gamer machine but great for anyone else that does word processing or internet and a few small programs. Not a design machine would not handle most Adobe...

Woefully disappointed

 

I installed this computer last week. I had bought it for my parents who only need it to check their email. The installation was easy and I was able to peruse some of the built-in software with ease. However, when I tried to finish the installation...

It's pretty

Unit wouldn't turn on for more than 5 seconds

Not bad!

 

LIke I said in my cons, its a small machine that will meet all of the day to day needs of most people. If you're looking for this as a gaming machine, keep looking! It's not designed for that, it's not intended for that, it will not work for that...

Small! This thing is freaking tiny ; Cheap! If you were to build this system, the cost would be consumed entirely in the CPU, hard drive, and operating system ; Covers the basics! If all you want is something to replace that Pentium III Hewlett Packard...

Well, the video ; The onboard video is indeed quite worthless for gaming. Note the last two words there! If you're looking to buy this machine, you're probably looking for something cheap you can give to the kids or something that your grandparents...

A steal at this price

 

I bought a ECS NGT430C-1GQR-F GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB video card for this thing. With the graphics card it can play most new games at medium settings. Games played on it: Left 4 Dead 2 (medium-high) APB Reloaded (medium) COD Black Ops (medium) COD...

Great little system for the price, but the on-board graphics are, of course, very poor. If you aren't playing games on this thing, then you will be happy with it as-is. It's fast and quiet, and doesn't come loaded with a lot of garbage on it. The good...

Onboard graphics are poor and out-dated

eMachines EL1358G-51W

 

Overall if you just want a computer to do Microsoft office stuff and surf the web this is a computer for you. If you are wanting to do any gaming look else where

Runs Internet great, can stream movies, large hard drive for the price I bought this computer because I own a Mac and at the time didn't wanna install boot camp so I figured I'd get a cheap pc to try to run some games and programs

Games I've tried playin ; Diabo 3(lags on low) ; Wow (very laggy) ; Swtor (too much lag to play) ; Warcraft / frozen throne (work great) ; Aion (playable on low but lots of lag) ; Command and conquer generals(plays on low) ; Starcraft 1/2(plays on low)...

Very Nice

 

great for a family computer

Bought this for my wife for running her website, facebooking, watching netflix, etc etc. You just cannot beat the value of this computer for the price. It runs rather fast for a shared video MB and economy hard drive. it certainly isnt up to the latest...

not a single one. made a system image disk after we got it set-up how we wanted it and its been running stable since day one
