Gateway SX2801-01e

 

Earlier this year, the Gateway SX2840-01 won our prestigious Editors' Choice award because of its winning combination of fast performance, small size, and overall living room competence. The system returned excellent performance scores and its Intel...

Small size, excellent single-core and multitasking performance; HDMI port makes it into a capable home theater PC; inexpensive

Dual-core processor outpaced by competition; no wireless networking; no FireWire

The Gateway SX2801-01e is just one of several new budget slim tower systems available this season. We're impressed by its compact design and the HDMI port makes it easy to use in the living room. For a $520 system, the SX2801-01e's performance and...

Great computer

 

I needed a computer to replace an old one and I wanted a lot of storage. With 1TB this computer fit the bill. Works as it should and I have no complaints about it at all.

fast, lots of memory, compact size

no cons so far

Very nice system for multi-tasking

 

I use this system for some gaming, along with office tasks. I also use this to control my amateur radio and logging programs while on-line with absoutely no problems.

Low-profile, plenty of USB 2.0 ports

Low-profle (although it saves room, you only have 2 expansion slots and no room for another internal drive). Runs most games okay but not fast enough for FSX

I hooked up, it didn't work.

 

I reviewed this computer last week, before taking it back to Best Buy. Where is that review, and a dozen others that were here last week

Small size, and light weight

It didn't work

Great as a Home Theater PC

 

I purchased this after using an Atom/ION based Acer Revo for home theater. It hit the wall with Silverlight and Netflix HD content. It was unwatchable. Even with only the dual core this machine handles ripping, WMC, and Netflix HD with no troubles at...

Small case and very quiet ; Integral internal CD/DVD drive ; HDMI and Dolby Digital ; Big internal HD

Not a speed demon for gamers ; DVD Open/Close button is hard to use ; A wireless keyboard/mouse or remote control would be nice

Very Pleased

 

I purchased this PC to replace my aging HP z545 media center. It looked like a good value and got positive reviews. Thus far, I have been very pleased. Setup with my HDTV and surround sound system were straightforward, and sound and video quality have...

Great value ; Snappy performance ; Handles HD digital cable well ; HDMI and optical audio out work well with my home theater setup ; Small form factor

Dual TV tuner would be nice ; Power button shines a bit bright in a dim room ; No Blu-ray

This is the best computer in the world! ”

 

I bought this tower with keyboard and mouse refurbished from circuit city for only 399.99. It has 1TB and 6GB which is better than I have ever had! It came with windows 7 and 2.8 pentium, multi-in-one media card reader, DVD-SUPER multi drive, etc. etc....
