After a poor experiance with CyberPower, (they don't even check out a PC before shipping) I feel they are now more interested in the mass market of Walmark, K-mart, etc, than building good machines for their direct purchase customers, I was concerned about V3. Turns out, I needn't have worried about this company, great customer service and product. As proof to the kind of performance they can build into a PC, my Passmark bench score for my 3 year old 1.6 ghz PC was 261.2, my new V3 rocked out a 3601.2. I am not a gamer but intend to use this PC for video editting of 1080P HD. I haven't had a chance yet to do serious editting, but in just installing the massive editting program, the old PC took forever to install and the new one pulled off the same chore in seconds. If the new V3 performs as I'm sure it will, then I will share my results with the folks on the GoPro forums. I believe for serious video editting you need a purpose built gamer type PC and V3 not only does that but the difference in both shipping packaging and cableing inside the PC is a night and day difference of the same from CyberPower. And I also got a follow up email to make sure I am happy with my V3. I too was drawn to V3 by the very favorable reviews in the major PC publications. As small as V3 is, they sure have the respect of both me and those major PC publications. Go ahead and buy from V3, you will not be disappointed. For you tech heads that want to know what configerations produced those big PassMark numbers, I'll post what V3 built for me below......
