Gateway DX4300-03

 

When your multimedia habit gets serious, likely any old budget desktop is not enough to handle all your music, photo editing, and video encoding. If you're looking to step up, the Gateway DX4300-03 ($749.99 list) offers more than entry-level multimedia...

Multimedia oriented. New styling. Device tray on top. TV Tuner included. Built-in Wi-Fi

No Blu-ray drive. Lots of bloatware. Limited internal expansion room. Short 60-day subscription to Norton Internet Security

A middle-of-the-road quad-core desktop for the multimedia enthusiast, the Gateway DX4300-03 is good at a lot of things, but great at nothing.

Gateway DX4300-15e – Wi-Fi and TV tuner with HD video output

 

We don't care much about a TV tuner card in the computer; we'd rather have that money spent on a discrete graphics card or a faster processor. Usually you have to sacrifice on features if you go for a computer with a TV tuner card but this Gateway...

It features wireless networking and TV tuner with general features and some upgrade options

The DX4300-15e does not have some external storage options that are found on other low cost Gateway desktops

If you need TV tuner card with HDMI video output and good performance, then you can buy Gateway DX4300-1e.

Gateway DX 4300-11 and Maingear Shift

 

Today we'll take a look at the Gateway DX 4300-11 and the Maingear Shift desktop computers. One machine delivers solid performance that should suit the needs of casual users, while the other will appeal to the gaming crowd.

If you are not satisfied with the DX 4300-11's components in its retail configuration, you do have some options in terms of upgrading it once it is in your hands. Should the 1 TB hard drive not be sufficient, there is room for an extra hard drive. ...

Not Bad

 

Good overall value, runs great with no problems. To the guy that wanted a windows 7 disc. The last time I bought a computer that came with an OS disc was in 2005. It takes 3 clicks and 20 minutes with the gateway software to make recovery discs, and...

Windows 7 64bit ; 1TB Drive ; 6gb ram ; Phenom ii x4 ; Dedicated Graphics Card (Not all that great) ; all for under 460 ; Everything worked good straight out of the box, Gateway has some great software for making windows 7 backup discs. No major...

Missing One rubber foot ; Missing one VGA securing Nut ; who does the visual inspection on refurbished gateways ; minus one egg for missing hardware

Very Nice Machine's

 

I had to make a couple of further comments regarding the negative review of one person , anyone that knows about branded machine sales realizes that OS's are bundled and many machines operate under the same License Keys , you are not running a risk of...

I had to add a second review to clear up a few points from the previous negative review , I would hate to see someone pass up on this machine because of a unfair review that was written with a serious lack of knowledge about Branded / Bundled Computers...

No Con's on this review , please see my first one for the only Con I could come up with which is not really a Con in the first place , they make you post in the Con section to post the review

beware of (lack of) software

 

Essentially, NewEgg (or Gateway/Acer, I am not sure who to blame here) makes you run an illegal copy of Windows. There is a Windows sticker on the case, but someone else somewhere has the disk. If that someone installs and runs the same copy of OS,...

Would be a decent system for the money if there was no hidden cost of operating system. Was shipped in time (although not cheap) and arrived in a good shape. Unlike in the other review it started OK, although I did not run it long enough to detect...

Stay away from it unless you have a spare copy of Windows 7 ; The computer comes without an OS installation disk. Windows is installed, but you obviously need to purchase another copy because at the first instance of any problem it will ask for an...

First computer I have purchased online with Newegg. I would have liked to see the computer shipped in a second box to protect the original packaging maybe the computer would have work the first time. The original packaging from Gateway has handles on...

PRICE - Piano black front, super fast processing speed, 6GB ram, room for expansion, plenty of usb access, recessed top for players & cameras to sit in, 1 TB WD GREEN power saving HD - SUPER QUIET almost completely silent

Low 300watt PS, graphics are weak, piano black - also a con as it is a dust magnet on the front ; 64bit WINDOWS 7 has some conflicts, some hardware & programs will NOT run in a 64 BIT system ; It is almost completely silent, have to look to see if it...
