Summary: These old Optiplexes are an absolute joy to crack open and work on. The machine that arrived was everything the description promised. To make matters better, it appears to have a replacement motherboard. This is good because the GX270 model is notorious for blowing capacitors on the motherboard (GX280 does not have this problem). I use these old machines to run low end headless FreeBSD and Debian servers, for which they work great.
Summary: I purchased this computer in 2011 and it worked well for over 3 years with no problems. That was the best $111 purchase I've every made. I definitely got my money's worth out of a super fast used computer. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it didn't have Microsoft word, excel or spellcheck. However I'm not tech savy so it's possible it would have been an easy fix, but I'm not sure.
Summary: There was not a product key, unable to start, no paperwork with order and the unit smelled like cigarettes. I then ordered from JoySystems and received a newer PC w/in 2 days, professionally packed with paperwork- and it was cheaper with free shipping. I will be donating this Dell to Goodwill.
Summary: No one has yet mentioned the high quality of this particular model of computer. In it's day it was an enterprise model for Dell, built for and sold to businesses, organizations and governments. It was a workhorse machine, built to stand up to heavy use. I have owned one for the last six years. I bought it used from a state government surplus warehouse, no operating system installed of course.
Summary: The seller - Refurbished-PC, sent me something other than what I ordered. I returned it for the right one but they gave me a refund instead. I never got the computer I wanted. Could it be they never had the one they were offering?
Summary: Purchased this computer becuase it has a printer port. Unit worked out of the box and all functions work properly. Clearly not a current generation computer, but works great for my application. Shipping for prompt and the material was well packed.
Summary: It is ok after we got it to working, but it is slow, and freezes up some times but it is better than the one I had but kind of wishing that I had bought a new one just hope that this one gets me through till I can get a new one
Summary: This older computer was exactly what my wife needed! The company sent it to us very quickly. In fact, it came so quickly it took me by surprise! It was extremely well packed and was obviously packaged with a lot of care. It came with all the required cables and even a mouse, which was not mentioned in the write up. This was such a pleasure ordering from this company!
