    I purchased this computer from amazon because of the positive reviews for Velocity computers, and the fact that the computer seemed to be a good value. I am very happy with what I received. Because the product description does not list everything with the computer, the specs are as follows.

    Intel Core I5-750 processor
    400 Watt Power Supply
    Mx2-W Velocity Micro Classic Case-Pure Aluminum with side window and 2X120mm fans
    Intel P55 Chipset Motherboard mATX
    4GB DDR3-1333 High Speed Memory (upgradeable to 16)
    HD 4850 Graphics
    1TB 7200rpm Sata2 hard Drive, 16MB cache
    Integrated Audio, 8 Channel
    22X DVD +/- RW Dual Layer Burner with Lightscribe
    6in1 Card Reader
    Keyboard and Mouse
    10 USB ports and 2 integrated IEEE 1394 Firewire
    Windows 7 64bit
    10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet
    1 Year Warranty

    The first thing I noticed when the computer arrived was the quality of the packaging. After opening the computer I found a free Velocity shirt and a nice folder that held all the papers and DVDs. The Velocity case is very solid, with plenty of room to work with. With no adjustments, this computer scored over 15,000 on 3dMark06. It also played Crysis, with everything on High and resolution at 1680×1050, very smoothly. It was only a demo, without the latest updates, so I would imagine it could actually play with some settings at Very High, and maintain over 30 FPS. Every game I threw at it played great. I am very happy with this purchase. I plan on upgrading the power supply down the road and adding a better video card, but for now this computer is a fantastic system for under $1000.

    I needed a new computer and took a chance after reading a great review (and the only other review) of this product on Amazon. After two failed systems, I hope to help others not make the same frustrating mistake of purchasing this system. There is a power failure of some type as diagnosed by the technical help at Velocity. The system randomly and constantly restarts itself. Velocity wanted to send me a replacement power supply to take to a computer repair shop and pay at my own expense to have it installed… I really wanted to like this computer and I gambled that the first unit I tried was a rare lemon but the replacement unit proved me wrong by having the exact same problem. My last two computers lasted about 7 years each so I’m going back to purchasing a Dell.

    Very fast but unstable. The machine would randomly reboot a few times a day. Velocity Tech Support had me run memory, graphics, and cpu diagnostics but nothing showed any failures. I contacted Amazon about the problem and they quickly shipped a replacement. It had the same issues as the first machine. I returned both machines and bought at ZT 7443Ti. The ZT is just as fast and completely stable.

    Amazon’s support was fast and excellent. Velocity’s tech support was poor. They were unable (or unwilling?) to get to the root cause of the problem. Emailing them was a waste of time since it would take them up to a week to respond, so the only way to get help was on the phone.
