They sell these ZT computers through Costco. A friend of mine just bought one. He told me it's fast and does not come with any preloaded software.

I continue to have troubles with my DT recognizing my external drives and I can't figure out why. An IT friend of mine couldn't either. He told me I should probably just re-format and load Windows 7.

Now I'm thinking if I have to do that, it might be time to by another box.

I do not play games or use my PC for the HT or video editing. Just some photo editing, MS Office and auto cad. The link to the product page does't work, it's a ZT DT Affinity tower for $599.

That's weird.

Maybe it was a similar but different model. Anyway, good luck and have fun!

Is this the one?

I would want to put a better video card in it but that's about it.

Meh. You can get a similar PC from a name-brand manufacturer like Dell, HP, etc for the same price.

I've never heard of "ZT Computers". If that were a stupid-cheap deal ($299?), maybe, but not for $599. Warranties and 24x7 tech support don't mean a thing when the company ceases to exist in a year.

Just my $.02...

I'm inclined to agree with Peter, here.

I'm agreeing too, except to say that both HP and Dell's "cheap" PCs are total junk, and will likely suffer a component failure just out of warranty. But that's what the people want, the cheapest possible PC they can get. There's no reason to believe that this ZT isn't exactly the same thing.
