5.0 out of 5 stars Solid PC, and Pretty Good for the Price, December 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Alienware AUR5-12571SLV Desktop (6th Generation Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD + 2TB HDD), Epic Silver (Personal Computers)
After setting this PC up, it runs any game I throw at it over 60 fps in 1440p resolution. This pre-built PC is great for those who don't have much time or don't feel like building their own PC, and the price is pretty good for what you're getting. The i7 6700 processor, the GTX 1070, and the 16 GB of RAM result in great performance, and Windows boots nice and quickly from the SSD. The HDD has plenty of space for games, music, videos, etc., and both storage drives are of decent quality as far as I'm concerned.

Notes:
- Comes with an optical drive, which is on the front as you can see. It's a bit noisy, but it does its job.
- IMPORTANT: The configuration you see on this listing comes with an 850 W PSU, which means you won't have to deal with the noise issues that arise with the 460 W configuration. With that said, it's pretty quiet; I haven't picked up any noticeable or disruptive noise so far, even when I am running demanding programs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great computer, lightening fast, November 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Alienware AUR5-12571SLV Desktop (6th Generation Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD + 2TB HDD), Epic Silver (Personal Computers)
Great computer, lightening fast, will definitely handle today's latest games at max settings and is VR ready. Takes about 2s to boot from the SSD. I also love how it looks and the customizable lighting on both the sides and the power button.

Alienware also comes with their own utility program which is helping in seeing temp settings, fan settings, etc.

It's a mid-sized tower with a pretty clever PSU swing door design which leaves plenty of room on the inside and further upgrades in the future if desired.

Downsides are that it only has 1x 3.5" HDD drive. It's a little bit on the heavy side at around 35 lbs or so and the outer panels and removable side panel are plastic and a little flimsy; you have to be careful when removing it.

But otherwise it's a great computer for gaming and will be for years to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice machine with some issues, February 12, 2017
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Alienware AUR5-12571SLV Desktop (6th Generation Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD + 2TB HDD), Epic Silver (Personal Computers)
Bought it last week. To clarify a question above, this desktop comes with both display port and HDMI port. HDMI is standard port in every alienware aurora machine, the introduction page didn't mention it.

Secondly, I DONT like the display port. Not sure if it's a common issue, display port in my desktop sometimes lose connection when I reboot/start PC. So I have to keep forced shut it down and reboot until my monitor detect a signal. I tried to test my monitor with my other laptop, and it works fine so the problem should come from the port in desktop.

BTW, if you use display port to connect your monitor, you CANT use your 1070 graphic card or open your NVIDIA control panel.
the HDMI port works fine, so far so good.

Sorry for complaining so much, I tried to submit my return application, the amazon agent is nice but I dont want to carry my heavy desktop all the way to the store. NOT sure if this is a common issue, just my personal opinion... Read more
