Surprisingly fast and powerful

Super fast gaming machine. Works great on my high resolution 2560x1440 gaming monitor, and with my Oculus Rift for VR. This machine is worlds faster than my Core i5 was. I did my homework and this is by far the most powerful gaming system you can get for the price right now. I was a little hesitant because of the review by the guy with the Acer windows mixed reality VR headset, but I hear Windows Mixed reality is still a bit glitchy compared to Oculus and the Vive. Glad to say I've had zero problems with my Oculus Rift.

Computer quit in 2 months

The computer in 2 months. It took me over 3 weeks to get a repair and recovery disc. It did not work and the computer has been returned for warranty repairs. If allowed, I will update this review. If the difficulty in getting a repair and recovery disc is typical, it does not look good. I had considered building up my own computer (as I have done in the past). Had I done that, I would have had a working computer in less time than it took to get the repair and recovery disc from ACER. PS. This computer is only 2 to 2.5 times faster than my old ASUS with the Itel i5 cpu. (rendering videos and saving huge WP 6 files) Not as much gain as the hype suggested. Certainly not enough to justify the cost of a replacement computer

Sometimes works

I got this computer with the Acer windows mixed reality headset and controllers and it is able to run those games sometimes. I get frequent blue screen of death from 'power driver failure', and I recently restored the system after deleting everything and still see the same issues on startup.

Bought this to replace older vr system, but had to use windows recovery.

Spend hours setting up all my software and waitewd for 9 hours for microsoft to finish its update! After 1st reboot after windows update it couldnt boot??????? As i could not find a Manual i consulted the internet on how to do a recovery. I made it whipe and reset everything as it came out of the box. Here we go again install all my software "but this time i disabled microsoft update" No issues after a long setup time. It runs great and handles VR "oculus rift" very well. Also great fast gaming experience. After the initial headache, the machine it self is very capable of handling modern games at impressive settings. I am going to assume that microsoft is to blame for thew complete failure initially. Im now very happy with its performance.
