The gaming pc was purchased for my grandson and hes on it as often as he can. The cost relative to the use is very equitable. I purchased the extended warranty 'just in case'. Although I thought the item was a bit pricey, he being a 14 yo teenager welll into computing, assured me that it fit the bill for his gaming needs.
After I have waited 2 weeks to get this computer I can tell you that I am more that pleased. It started up just fine, only issue first starting up that one of the fan wires were hitting the fan. It was a simple fix, just move it out of the way a little. But overall this computer works great. The GTX 650, which is the graphics in this computer is fantastic. It can play almost any game at medium to high settings. Overall this computer is a great start for gaming and I highly recommend this PC.
The price was very good and considering it's for a preteen's first gaming PC, it fit the budget well. Very easy to assemble and hook up. The only "issue" I have had is with the monitor I had to buy separately, it's not compatible with the graphics card so after every start up or sleep mode the monitor has to be reset with a lower button to "find" the plugin - In hindsight I wish the product came with a recommendation of what to buy or be aware of to get since the monitor had to be purchased separately.
The computer I received started out nicely being reasonable in price and free shipping and handling. The site unlike several others told a lot about the product including how many ports wattage Ram ex. However upon receiving the item I've been unable to use it there appears to be a problem with the graphic card. Its not sending anything to either monitor and am unable to use it. I tried to find a number to call however they only have a e mail which is kind of funny sine I need a computer to e mail. ATM I'm giving a bad review since I can't rate the quality of a product if I can't even use it. I am sending a message to them tonight about my problems and give an update on what happens.
This was a gift to my son for Christmas. Once set up, the power cable does not seat in the connection properly, way too loose. Now after 2 days the computer does not work at all, it turns on but does not come up to a screen only a cursor. Very disappointed in the product.
First of all , I would like to say the computer is just a s good as any other on the market. The only thing that would make this better to me , would to have have it loaded with Windows 7! Windows 8 stinks! Complicated to use. That maybe why I'm n o t getting the best from my computer . It's suppose to be a gamer but haven't notice a ny difference in my golf game other than it doesn't skip anymore. I could have saved money buying about her computer with the same or more amenities. :( felt pressure during the season to grab the best deal. I think I grabbed the wrong one. It's a good computer but, over priced for what I got.
After setting up and buying speakers and a DVI-D cable for the unit I started exploring things. The windows program comes up and prompts you to activate windows. But it is already activated if you drop to the lower left corner and you can see the windows 8 icon. Click on this and then windows 8 opens. Seemed O.K then until I started trying to play a game called Skyrim. After an hour to hour and a half the whole system went down. I pushed the front switch after a minute or so and it came right back on. Started playing the game again and the same thing happened once more. It has shut down about 7 times so far. Cyberpower service had me install a program to monitor the CPU temp and VC temp. Told it may be overheating and shutting down or a bad power supply. This kind of tells me that the ubit was not tested thoroughly enough. I am now going to try and just get a refund because I should not be troubleshooting a brand new product. It does not instill confidence in long term reliability.
As i revieve this computer after 3 weeks of waiting on it. I get the delivery unpack it and start hooking everything up. As i continued hooking everything up and tried turning my monitor. The monitor never would come on. USB ports dont work unless its plugged in half way. I would recommend this computer to anyone. Myself i am going to get a refund and go else where to buy a new computer.
