  • Good enough for the kind of girls I date.
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this machine mostly to sit in the corner and act as a print server, and perform a few other low-pressure tasks. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived with absolutely ZERO bloatware. I mean, it had the OS, drivers, and nothing else! I was a little less pleased with the super-cheap keyboard. My co-workers all demanded that I get a new one, because they keys click loudly enough to annoy people in the next room. (they're still giving me grief about that.) I recently upgraded this machine to Windows 10, and it's running it as well as I could hope. The only problem I've had was that the wireless network adapter driver wasn't compatible with Win10 (but that wasn't included in the purchase anyhow, so no fault of the machine.) If you're not a power user, this one will do what you need it to, but forget gaming, and video is iffy.

  • Great Base Level Product
    Verified Purchase

    No problems with startup, where this unit was easily "plug & play". Purchased this unit for my mother, who needs some power for pics, emails and Skype, but more for reliability and this unit has proven to meet that need. I would recommend and would purchase again.

    This computer came ready to plug in and use right out the box. No Setup, no CD needed to install anything. Just a joy and it performs as advertised.

  • good replacement for older desktop
    Verified Purchase

    Ordered this to replace a 10 yr old Dell desktop that died recently. It performs better than the old one, although it is slower than my new laptop, but I expected that based on the specs. It was not difficult to hook up and so far we are pleased with the performance. We have been using it for 3 weeks and not had any major issues.

      CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA400 AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz Gaming Computer comes with the Nvidia graphics card Item #: 14858114.

  • Q:

    "Nowhere does it say wifi enabled, is it wifi enabled?"

    • A:

      The built-in 10/100/1000 network card (NIC) I would have preferred a standalone card which could be swapped out, or a card that could be upgrade in the future via firmware. Preferably Intel, or 3Com. The NIC chip can be disabled via the BIOS. The eight USB version 2.0 ports (six in the back, two in the front) are a welcome addition especially the two in the front which are not hidden behind an annoying hinged door and by using one of the USB ports you can use the Actiontec 802AIN Wireless N USB Network Adapter and have wireless wifi.

      This has SATA.

  • Q:

    "i do not want to use windows or mac osx i use only linux distrobutions is it possible to purchase one without buying an operating system ?"

    • A:

      The operating system has already been added to the computer; we cannot sell you the computer without the operating system.

  • Q:

    "Second question. This one’s tricky: I don't really want to re-install all my programs and files, so if I clone my existing hard drive to the HD that comes with this unit, can I then use the Win7 Installation CD to upgrade from my existing Win2000 operating system?"

    • A:

      You cannot upgrade directly from WIN 2000 to Win 7 with the CD that comes with the computer. Win 7 has to be installed from scratch. So that will not work.

  • Q:

    "The product description lists "CD-ROM", yet a previous question referred to an R/W DVD. Can you clarify what optical drive comes with this unit? Thanks..."

    • A:

      This computer comes with a CD-ROM optical drive.

  • Q:

    "will the cd/dvd read and write"

    • A:

      No, it is a CD-ROM drive only.
