Our unit has 16 of these and they all work very well as of right now. Fast, dual display port outs on the motherboard, US 3 front headers and they are dead silent

Excellent - blue tooth capable ( built in ) awesome addition
Everything was as it should be. Great performance, beautiful case. Runs most games at ultra settings 1080p) with no problems at all
Half of ours had BSOD issues straight from Dell
This is a true mid tower form factor so if space is a condern, maybe look at a micro form factor
290w power supply limits what you can do with any add ons after the fact and this PSUMobo is not a standard 20 or 24 pin power plug

Packing could have been better. The box that contained the mouse was basically destroyed; however, the mouse itself was fine. Also, the screws in the back of the case were basically stripped upon arri
