Mostly good1/7/2016 6:49:08 AM

Pros: - Good quality packaging - Unit and parts had no scratches or dents - All components worked out of the box

Cons: - Very disappointed the controller is the old generation that doesn't contain the 3.5mm headphone jack. This was not advertised so docking an egg.

Overall Review: Getting this refurb special along with the $22 1 year warranty is still about $75 cheaper than buying a new $350 bundle anywhere else. With the warranty including replacement options, this seems like one of the best deals around.

Cons: BIOS can be tricky to update - included software is a little sketchy.

BUY THIS APU1/21/2014 6:49:38 AM

Pros: - Got a great price (125) with free shipping - Worked perfectly out of the box - Handle's games amazingly (See Other Thoughts) - Runs great under Windows 8.1 as well as Linux Mint/Ubuntu

Cons: - Can run a little warm, but that's expected

Overall Review: I bought this for a budget gaming system and.. wow! This APU peforms way better than I anticipated. I was originally planning on saving up for a dedicated GPU as soon as possible, but now I can take my time because this thing rocks. I was able to play Batman Arkham Asylum on High settings without a hiccup. I wasn't running a fps monitor, but it was definitely higher than 30 and looked amazing. If you're going to rely on this for gaming, be sure to buy fast RAM. I got 2133Mhz G.Skill and am very happy with the results.
