I'll update this further once we've really got this up and running properly, but my initial view is not that great. I'm sure the machine itself will be fine and more than adequate for its purpose (a first "gaming" machine for my 12yo son). I've just taken delivery and based on the notice that any issues should be reported within 48 hours I decided to get it up and running as opposed to waiting until Christmas day (in 4 days time). I'm glad I did. First of all - no power cable,despite it supposedly being included. Ok, I got hold of a spare from another machine. Next thing - remove internal packaging. Ok - fine, however it was then clear how misaligned and rushed some of the construction looked - screws not in straight, rubber dampers warped from screws just being forced in, some cables looking a bit short and pulling on components (and as you'll see below others left too long). Then I noticed that the two sidewall fans weren't connected. Not a big deal to me, I know what I'm doing with these things - however there was no mention of this in any of the papers accompanying the machine (which were scant at best) so I can envisage someone less experienced being confused by this. My biggest issue though was the ungodly racket which occurred on powering it up for the first time - after hastily shutting it down I was able to track down that the cables running to the CPU fan had been left overly long and the loom was therefore dangling down and fouling on the blades of the fan itself. Not good. I've secured the loom out of the way for now, but taken together it doesn't suggest to me that much care or QA has been involved in the assembly of this particular machine.
