The machine froze up twice in the first week and the retail dealer was kind enough to replace the hard drive, which was defective.

The repaired machine simply shut down twice when I tried to start Thunderbird email client. No indication of error, just shutdown.
Windows7 also could not locate a driver for an HP Laser Printer that is about one year old. I don't recall the model, but it is a common printer sold in office and computer stores.
I'm returning th E-Machine and getting a locally built system.
Also going back to WinXP.
Windows 7 is not ready.
I have an old emachines T2885... hard drive failed. So I restored the OS using the restore CD. Everything installed fine.... except drivers for the ethernet, video, sound....

So I called emachines / checked their web site...
Bottom line.... no drivers since its out of warranty unless I want to pay for support....
Damn, that sux.... looks like its Linux from here on out....
I would not recommend this computer. We upgraded & replaced an older model E-Machine with this one. At least the older model was quiet. This model is beyond noisy. When on, it sounds like a very loud wind tunnel which is not only distracting but annoying.

In my opinion, they went backwards with this model. I gave up a very quite computer for a fraction more speed. Not a great trade-off.

crappy speakers is my only complaint.
CALIFORNIA -- I purchased a E machine on sale at Target, in Fairfield, CA in October 2009 by February 2010, the CD went out, then the sound, it was still under warranty the company said I need to delete all my added programs, send it to them at my expense and they would fix it, well since I only paid $345.00 for the computer and it cost around $45.00 to send and my programs I added were around $200.00 it wasn't in my opinion worth me sending them it they should have replaced it, to this day I have a messed up system still under warranty that stinks, won't be repaired, I guess the old saying is true you Pay for what you Get.2 Replies - Latest reply on 02/07/2012Add reply

I brought a e-machine at my Wal-Mart up the street from me. I get it home and it did not have any software. it told me to REBOOT ....... Okay so I shut the computer off. Restart it. I do it two times. I call the company, sadly the young man was Indian I had a very hard time understanding him. (side note I help people learn English as a second language ESL, so I understand ascents.) He tell me to shut down the computer, restart it holding the f10 key and alt. I do this two times. He said he will send me new software. I need the computer !!"NOW"!! for my job. I went back to WAL-MART told them the story. The Staff are great people at WAL-MARt. As I was waiting another person came up with the same computer. I replied, let me guess no software?? Yes, and the fan sounds like and airplane. SORRY E-MACHINE BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE MY VOTE. I just wish companies could get people that spoke clearer ENGLISH. We all need jobs in these world however we need to be understood to help others
