Speedy, looks nice, and came with great features.
Gatway (Acer) service is what made me decide on a one star rating.

I got this computer 1.5 months ago and it has been running great. I did replace the power supply with an OCS 600W so I could add an AMD 6870 graphics card and an Intel 120GB SSD as my boot drive. It is fast and now good for gaming. The added graphics card fits fine even though it is really long, the case allows for one long PCIe card. The SSD fit fine in an extra internal HDD space and connected easily to one of the extra SATA3 ports on the MoBo. Adding those other parts was still cheaper than buying a gaming computer and it's faster than most. The extra removeable HDD bay in the front with easy acess will be nice if i need to add a 2nd HDD. The USB3.0 ports are fast for the portable drive I have that is USB3.0.
The 3rd gen I7 is awesome. The 7200 RPM hardrive is nice and fast and great now that it's my 2nd drive for storage. Not crazy about the keyboard and cheap mouse so I used my nicer ones from my previous setup.

Great PC right out of the box. Speedy, looks nice, and came with great features. Nice size hard drive with plenty of USB ports. The model I purchased came with a hard drive dock below the DVD drive and that was a huge plus.

After less than 6 months, the hard drive has failed. Gatway (Acer) service is what made me decide on a one star rating. My choices for repair are to 1. Ship them my entire computer and the will swap out the hard drive and replace it with one with Win7 installed, but no data transfer from the old hard drive. 2. Send them my hard drive, and after they get it the will send me another with no oprating system, a process that will take more then 2 weeks according to them. 3. Let them hold an undisclosed amount of money on my credit card until they can get around to sending me another hard drive with no operating system, let me swap it out and make sure I have all my data, ship the defective hard drive back to them, whereupon they, after some unspecified amount of time, will let me have my money back.

I am on my third service operator, and have been on the phone for more than an hour. Oh wait, this one is telling me I'm responsible for getting the money back from the bank myself. They do not release the hold on my credit card, I have to ask my bank to pretty please let me have my money back.

And I'm not done yet...

I'm not a hard core gamer, just someone that likes to cruise the Internet, send email, word processing and maybe some light gaming, so my wants are not a lot! Just something to cruise the net fast and QUIET!!! I had built a gaming computer----thanks to many forums, who led their expertise and gave their approval, but it was far too noisey and then it died!! So After much research I decided to give this gateway a try and so far could not be happier! It is fast, quiet and came with very little bloatware--and it was easy enough to remove. Only negative item thus far is not enough USB hubs---so I ordered a 10 USB Hub from Amazon--problem solved!! It has a ttl of 8 USB hubs, 6 in the back (2 are 3.0) and 2 in the front. This is probably more computer than I truly need, but should last me for quite some time. My wife purchased a gateway FX 6860 UR10P back in Nov 2012 and has had no real issues--which led me to buying this Gateway!! 2 very happy Gateway customers

Update: March 01 2013
Still running the same, and still quiet!! Still happy with the purchase. No problems at all.

I use this computer exclusively for HD video and still photo editing. HD editing particularly is a computer resource hog and difficult for a lot of machines but this Gateway handles this easily. A great value for the money.
