    Not as mindblowing as expected

    I upgraded from an 8 year old computer [1st generation i7, 48Gbs, 1050ti) and expected this computer to be mind blowing, it wasn't but it wasn't bad either. The startup is really fast, and it's a beautiful. I'm sure it's a killer gaming computer but I won't be using it for that. Rendering audio files seem to take as long as my original computer but the rep said "The computer will get faster after it recognizes my usage patterns." I have never heard of that except when using a hybrid hard drive but, yeah... Maybe he's right, who knows. Photoshop seems to be a little slugish as well. I have the protection plan so I will check to see if it's something minor. Bestbuy (in my opinion) makes it seem like the whole unit changes colors, including the fans and this is not correct. Only the LED strip, and the motherboard changes colors. I see lights strips advertised for dirt cheap so you can add more strips if you like but again, the fans' LEDs stay red all the time. The fans stay on at high all the time (except one which is connected to the motherboard). The rep asked me to check the motherboard and even sent me an email with a diagram to see if there is additional fan connections on the motherboard. If there is then I will just need to connect the fans directly to the motherboard for control over the additional fans. There is only room for one additional 3.5 hard drive (for a total of two). Now let's talk about the good. I like the good: It comes with (1) 2.5 SSD, and room for (2) additional SSD. There's 2 slots for (NVMe) SSD(s), one is said to run at a higher speed. NVMe prices reminds me of when 2.5 size SSD used to cost several years ago and the prices will go down soon guess. I have not toyed with the new hard drive to see if I will be able to access my files faster when editing but the stats says it will. I love how you can connect 4 monitors using one video card. 4 monitors help my work flow when editing. There are a ton of usb3.0, and 1 usb 3.1, and usb-C. Bestbuy says there are also usb2.0 but mine doesn't. They could be losing money because of this. Also, it was listed as DDR3 when in fact it's DDR4. I'm not sure if they have fixed this error yet. P.S... There isn't much room in this machine and the wires are jammed in the back.

    Excellent Gaming and Editing Experience

    At first, I was a bit disappointed at the fact that I would not be able to play on this computer, as it was a defective unit, with no WiFi card installed. However, I was glad to hear that they would be able to fix the tower, and ship it back out to me in a few days. I was so happy to see that they even packaged it with a new keyboard and mouse, and of course, the fixed computer tower. The gaming experience, and its overall experience, was one that I just could not comprehend. For many years, I was stuck with such a downgraded computer, that I still was thankful for. But now switching to this computer, and just seeing how fast it is, I couldn't say a word. I was quite speechless, with just how good this computer performed. I am glad that I had made the move from IBuyPower, to CyberPower!
