Consumer review (newegg.com)

Get ready to do some extra work to make it work!

 

I am extremely disappointed that ABS would not take the time and care to ensure compatibility and function of the components combination which makes up this machine. Quality assurance should be highly important to any company in the gaming computer...

OK I have custom built gaming PC's for years, plenty of Intel and AMD systems. Per the specifications this is a solid machine for the price. And that is about all I can say that is positive.

The system would never load windows out of the box, and I kept getting a windows installation error. ABS customer service instructed me to download window 10 onto a flash drive and do a fresh install which involved an INSAIN amount of extra work...

I'm satisfied

 

Overall, this is probably the best computer in this price range. The graphics card/motherboard aren't bad at all, and you can always upgrade it/crossfire it later.

-Plugged in, turned on no problems -Low fan noise -Inflatable foam filled inside to protect machine parts in shipping -Cheap price

-Motherboard on the smaller side -Had to assign letter to hdd to access drive -Keyboard letters are dark, might be a problem for someone who doesn't know how to type correctly

BUY A BACKUP MOTHERBOARD

Fast boot, runs every game on ultra, no issues at all. Its great being the first person in the server. Has shut off for case lights, which is huge.

The only con I have is I sent my link to a friend to purchase the same one. He gets a free copy of Hitman, that wasn't offered with mine. So my con has nothing to do with the computer, just kinda sucks about the freebie. SINCE PURCHASE IN JANUARY,...

IT HAD POTENTIAL??? --- ABS HAS POOR QUALITY CONTROL

 

It was fast and had real potential until you read the cons below.

The First Ruby was fine except for the Button did not work and at times it would shut down. The Second Ruby (Replacement for First Computer) was a total mess with wiring harness so tight it broke things and Graphic Card ran so hot it could not be...

ZERO to HERO

 

Choose it. Buy it. Use it.

My order was a total turnkey. The system is quiet, fast and easy to get going (I plugged cords in and turned the power on) ...doesn't get any easier than that.

#1 Problem: You cannot get instantaneous delivery due to a flux in the space/time continuum.

Got my RMA

 

Like my previous review it is an amazing build. It will play everything. I'll give them 5 eggs.

I got my RMA after having a bad first one. It runs smooth and works like a charm. Plays everything on ultra.

Was missing the 3 TB HD but I am contacting ABS to send me one. (Hopefully they will.)

Issues on first day! RMA

 

Hopefully I just got a dud and the next one will run smooth and everything will be there. I had it RMA'd so once I get this one I will update my thoughts.

Great build if it was all there and worked. Great airflow. Liquid cooler. Definitely worth the money if it's all there and works.

Blue screen of death multiple times. Graphic drivers after install of them would crash after bios on startup. Missing ssd. Hushed audio. No lights on front fans. Blue matrix looking vertical lines on every monitor I tried. Keyboards backlights were...

Currently Shipping It Back and getting a replacement, hopefully this one will work.

This machine is a great build

Never would boot up, kept getting a windows loading error message and the screen would go blank. Keyboard would not light up and the led lights did not light up in the front. It has been a week now since I spent the money on this machine, now I'm...

Newegg continues to be the best place to shop for computers/electronics for me.

Fast boot, runs every game on ultra, no issues at all. Its great being the first person in the server. Has shut off for case lights, which is huge.

The only con I have is I sent my link to a friend to purchase the same one. He gets a free copy of Hitman, that wasn't offered with mine. So my con has nothing to do with the computer, just kinda sucks about the freebie.
