Consumer review (newegg.com)

Risky purchase - can't recommend

 

If they could be more upfront so the customer doesn't feel blindsided by sudden changes, that would be a start.

- Good deal for the price (if it works) - customer support is fairly prompt to respond/help (when they can) (added: recieved my refund without hassle so I can order another computer faster, so there's that at least. I gave back a star for that)

- Computer showed overheating problems soon after purchase. Power supply burned out unexpectedly during normal use in a well-ventilated area; made the whole room smell like burning. - Was offered and accepted a replacement, rather than attempt to...

ABS Vulcan is an excellent value for a high end gaming system

 

Newegg's service when I called for warranty help was first rate. They offered to either send me a new power supply or a new computer. Since I've previously built my own and have changed dozens of psus, I elected to go a psu swap so I wouldn't have to...

Good memory, fast processor and excellent video card

The 600 watt Thermaltake power supply is a little light for a power supply. My power supply died after only 3 months of mild use when I pushed the system for the first time with a graphics intensive game.

No Service and False Activation

 

I can't say I would at the moment, I mean look at the other reviews, it appears this product is a hit or a miss. I sadly missed

Looks great

Well the company will not answer my calls or reply to my emails. They send me a false activation code, and anytime I try to at least skip the activation code process it reboots itself and starts over

Great!...with one exception...

 

Ever since I got it there was a smell coming from it, that I was pretty sure was coming from the power supply. I continued to use it and eventually one day I was gaming and everything shut off, and it would not turn back on. Fortunately I had an almost...

- A lot of great components in this computer at a great price!

- Tower was not as big as I wanted, but ended up not being a prob. But some people might not want the smaller tower regardless. - Power Supply burnt out after about a month of use...

Perfect For What I Need

 

Overall I am very pleased with this PC so far. I'm a photographer and have recently gotten into PC gaming, so I was looking for something that could handle Photoshop and games like Fallout 4, Witcher 3, etc. well. I also dabble in video editing, and...

Great performance for cost Aesthetically pleasing Very well packaged by Newegg Windows 10 HUGE improvement over 8 1 HDMI port, 3 display ports, 1 DVI port is AWESOME for multiple monitor setups

Case is a bit cramped, not much room for upgrades/general maintenance Keyboard is meh. Not great, but I've gotten much worse Cooling could be better, but didn't expect too much from stock cooling Wish the PSU was 750w instead of 600

Worked right out of the box

 

Im switching from consoles to PC and this is great. Does everything I need it to and if I want to add stuff later its simple and the inside is neatly organized for me. This gets a recommendation from me but if I had to make just one change I would get...

Opened box, removed tower, removed packing material, started up, downloaded Steam, started playing Fan is quiet Graphics are great on all my games Good overall starting computer, easily up-gradable later

Case is uninspiring
