Windows 7 disappears with failed drive

Denny H., Newegg
2 September 2015
  • Summary: Buyers need to know more about the OS policy that comes with these units. I assumed that in all cases you had a legal Windows Product Key and if you had a complete disk failure there would be a way to contact Newegg and reload the OS onto a new drive.
  • Pros: Cheap and worked for almost 6 months
  • Cons: Hard drive failed without warning

James A Bryant, Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: It's a great machine for every day computing and internet surfing. It works as expected with no surprises, easy set up because the software was already installed. I took me about 15 minutes to have the system up and running.

  • Pros: Good price for web surfing and doing office work.
  • Cons: Concur with the other buyer, it came with 32-bit OS when it should have been 64-bit. Keyboard is flimsy and came cracked but still useable. Pondering whether I should call their customer service or not...
