Alienware DHS-301 Media Center PC review: Alienware DHS-301 Media Center PC

 

Intro

Attractive black case fits well with other home A/V components; wireless keyboard and mouse; plenty of available expansion slots; quiet operation preserves audio quality and eliminates irritating background noise.

Overpriced given the midrange configuration; no sound card option available at time of purchase; small hard drive for large digital media libraries.

The Alienware DHS-301 Media Center PC makes a capable and stylish addition to any entertainment center, but for its middle-of-the-road PC components, the price tag is awfully high.
