I have had this desktop for about 2.5 years now and to tell the truth it has been pretty good, I have been using it almost every day and not had any major problems (thankfully). It has all the capabilities that one needs, USB ports, mermory card ports and probably best of all a wide range of compatibilty with most input and output systems. It is very good with all mutlimedia (even though it's not my strong point). To set up camera's, wireless and other attachments is extremely easy.
However, it does have it's faults. The desktop's air flow is very loud (making and 'whirring' noise) and is very disracting when trying to knuckle down to some important work.
I would like to also recommend the HP Photosmart 8450 printer as it is great with photos and works very well with this desktop.
All-in-all this product is a cost-effective buy, but i would have a good look at others before buying it.
