Hello Everyone,

This is my formal review of my Digital Storm system, which I received at the beginning of June this year.  This is my second Digital Storm system, the first one I purchased two years ago, almost to the date.  This time I wanted all the bells and whistles DroolingI could get, and still have some money left over to buy things like a new monitor and such.

Here is the new system I ordered:

The system arrived, and everything was packed tightly, so there was little movement of components that could not be moved back without minimum effort.  This system is everything I expected and more.  Great forum support, DS Customer service was and is AWESOME - special thanks to Alex, who led me by the hand on some small issues, which he got straightened out for me Big%20Smile

Here are pictures of my system, with ALL the protective film off  Oops
