Gateway DX4300-15e review: Gateway DX4300-15e


Gateway DX4300-15e

Includes TV tuner and wireless networking without sacrificing general-purpose features; room to upgrade despite bounty of features.

Missing storage-friendly external ports found on other, less expensive Gateway desktops.

Not everyone wants a PC with a TV tuner, but if you're in the market for such a system, the Gateway DX4300-15e has you covered. Best of all, it offers a tuner without sacrificing other features we'd expect to find at this price. You'll find few other...

Gateway DX4300-11 review: Gateway DX4300-11


Gateway DX4300-11

Well-designed case gives easy access to front-panel media card reader.

Leisurely performance.

We're fond of the Gateway DX4300-11's clever design, but halfhearted performance scores mar its overall worth. The TV tuner and 1TB hard drive may tempt you to stick it in your living room as a media center PC, but your money is better spent on the...

Gateway DX4300-03


The DX4300-03 is Gateway's mid-range multimedia desktop; it gets decent numbers for the entry-level enthusiast, but if you're looking for performance, look elsewhere.

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.

Gateway DX4300-03 review: Gateway DX4300-03


Gateway DX4300-03

Clever design makes front-panel media card ports easily accessible; large hard drive; reasonably capable digital media PC.

Slow performance next to competing PC at the same price; poor power efficiency.

Gateway's DX4300-03 is a game attempt at a digital media hub-style PC, but the value proposition just isn't here. Slow performance in particular drags this desktop down, and unless you particularly value a TV tuner, you'll find faster, more capable...

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. ...

A great capable computer!


I have had this computer for 6 years now, and it's been wonderful most of the time. It's a fast computer that won't break the bank and lasts for years. I'm typing this review on this computer as a matter of fact. However, one thing that disappointed me...

Decent processor, good RAM, fast

Graphics card is not the best, frequently overheats

"Solid Performer."


The Tuner is not the big problem. It can be replaced. Over all. I have had this computer over 5 years and it still performs like the day i bought it. A must have. Forget the get a computer every 3 year myth. This one will last.

Fast /Up gradable/Many Features/Good gaming graphics without adding a card.

Tuner can unexpectedly fail.

Whats with these low reviewers?


I have had this computer for about 2 years now and it has never had any issues. ITs never crashed, and I've never re-installed windows or any other OS. I put in a gaming graphics card that I invested roughly $100 into. TOTALLY worth it, this computer...

8 gigs ram Quad core processor Easily modified Fast performance reliable

The internet card was a bit wear i had to buy an external one. The motherboard graphics card was not quite there for gaming.

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
