5.0 out of 5 stars Great, FAST computer at a tremendous price, October 17, 2016

When I purchased this PC, there were no reviews, which made me a little nervous. However, SkyTech seems to have a pretty good reputation and this computer had the best specs in the price range, so decided to give a shot. Boy am I glad I did! I have had this PC for just under a week but feel comfortable with reviewing it at this time, so here goes:

First impressions on opening the box were very positive. It was well-packaged and everything was secure.

Computer fired up and worked first try - no lose connections or issues whatsoever.

So now the pros:

- boot time, thanks to the 120GB SSD, is very fast. Big change from my old IDE HDD booting up Vista x64!
- no bloatware! Your desktop is almost completely empty and your start menu has hardly anything in it.
- the interior of the computer is very clean, with cables tied back, etc
- The clear side panel for the case is cool
- Both side panels for the case come off very... Read more

Hello all. I've been a laptop user for years and I finally decided to go back to desktop for gaming purposes and I was very pleased with this product and its seller who reached out to me, met my needs and beyond.

After a week of extensive research and figuring out my budget, I decided to purchase the Skytech over building my own PC because it was right in my price range and the combination of the CPU, Video card, RAM, and everything else was extremely valuable for what you get out of a pre-built and just what I needed to play LoL, HOTS, and a lot of last generation Xbox/PS3 games (on Steam) on their highest settings. I'm sure this baby can rev up some current gen games on mid settings.

It's been about 2 months and so far so great. Zero issues so far.

Goodios, the seller, reached out to me to give them a review. I told them a couple of small problems I had with the desktop. They immediately sent out fixes and within a week, I received a free sound... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great rig. Great price. Plug in and go - not so much, December 27, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'd been keeping an eye out for Nvidia 1060 class "gaming" computers ever since Nvidia announced the 1080 back in May 2016. The idea of the Pascal engine seemed exciting to me and I was looking forward to putting together a replacement for my kobbled together a bunch of upgrades and re-doos. When I saw the SkyTech Shadow on Amazon, I decided to get it as an early Christmas present for myself. Just so you know where I'm coming from, even though I've been assembling computers since the early 1980s, I don't really keep up much any more with the trends. Nowadays, if I want to upgrade something, I do a lot of googling and try to get a little informed before I make a purchase. The SkyTech seemed to fit the bill on paper in almost every way. I put dream systems together on PCPartPicker.com so I had a good idea of the performance price value of the SkyTech when I decided to buy it. It's priced very reasonably all things considered.

I really only play one game so this review... Read more
