the replacement system i have is better than the first one that died. it has no shit pixels and runs cooler than the older one by a good 7C or so. the older one idled in the 50C range where this one idles in the 40C range.
i had them put in a tv tuner with this one and i found that to be a neat feture with the remote control being able to turn the computer on and off. they also saved my old hard drives so non of my information was lost. i just had to bug one of their techs to make sure this was done before they new system shipped.
overall everything went great and i am really happy! i just haven't found the time to continue this review. i actually don't think i will continue with this review since the 9880 model is out.
