Gateway DX4820-02 Review and Ratings


As a relatively powerful, complete PC package, the DX4820-02 is a decent choice. But it's relatively expensive, considering new budget PCs that offer similar speed for most tasks.

Loads of upgrade potential ; Generous 8GB of DDR3 RAM ; 23-inch 1080p monitor included

Included LCD is very glossy, lacks USB ports ; Gaming performance could be better ; Overpriced for its performance

I do not like the monitor stand at all. It is not height adjustable, and it wobbles. I had to set it on top of something to get it to the right height. Eventually I'll get a stand for it that does not wobble ; The soundcard does not have a digital...

Works well with an aftermarket Hauppauge Tv tuner. This machine is a great deal

Great design, the fans allow for it to never really heat up, i leave it on for a while. Everything is lightning fast, works well with multiple monitors, and there is no issue with adding hardware. Monitor is vibrant, stand is cheap

Takes a while to turn on, cd burner is touchy. Computer doesnt read micro cds

Awesome setup for the price.


Overall I am very happy about my purchase and although I hope I never need it; I love that it has a warranty so I don't have to worry about fixing it if something goes wrong.

What a welcome relief. I bought a refurbished HP about a month ago from newegg and had to RMA it because the SATA HDD started being recognized as a SCSI drive. It ended up being the worst computer and customer service experience (from HP, not newegg)...

Optical drive eject buttons are on the side of the PC case face plate and I feel like I'm going to tip the tower over when I push them. There are redundant eject buttons on top also but sometimes the button push doesn't register on those and I find...
