Sony NAS-E35HD

Very happy with delivery and service. Great price as it was cheaper than anywhere else. I have put 100's of songs on it, great sound and easy to use, can even plug my ipod onto it and listen to music from that also. Would certainly recommend.

We didn't like this system's monitor, but in other respects the T6536 delivered decent performance and a reasonable set of features at a very attractive price

HP Pavilion Elite m9080n

The HP M9040N Elite appears to have the right mix of parts upon first inspection of the technical specifications, but the overall product is a disappointment at the performance level. I have a year old Dell Inspiron 530 Core2Quad that can run circles...
