Summary: Oh, don't try to call them every line says they are back logged, not very good customer support.
Pros: Well the price is right, if you have some computer knowledge.
Cons: Internet Explorer was hosed up so you need to make changes to get that to run, and until you do you can't use the internet. The DVD drive did not work but I flashed the drive and got it to work. The system needs to be updated and the Dell drivers were not installed.
Not good. Froze up daily and would not upload pictures
18 October 2015
Summary: Bought refurbished. Not good. Froze up daily and would not upload pictures. Returned and got a different one. It is a bit better, but still has issues. Parts sent so it does work, but it also will not download pictures frm iphone or ipad. Can't recommend.
Summary: Firstly, the screen doesn't work properly, it will come on only for a few seconds. Secondly, the windows key has expired. I really needed this for school, I am extremely disappointed. Update: Now after only 1 day the CPU refuses to come on at all. The power button just blinks orange.
Pros: decent performance and form factor for the price; for non-power users for sure
Cons: eSata support is not there. The Drive controller BIOS is set to ATA as delivered so enabling eSata requires reinstalling Windows 7 most likely. I spent two days looking for and then trying online solutions that didn't work. This was after I bought a eSata external drive that I will have to return...
Pros: Overall, the machine is as expected - it "functionally" works as expected.
Cons: Vibration noises are insane! When it writes to the hard drive, the entire box vibrates! Constant metal vibration echoes all around my office. I can't concentrate. It's driving me nuts! I guess I'll have to get a SSD or a lot more Advil.
DELL OptiPlex 780 Core 2 Duo 3.0GHz 8192MB 2000GB DVD Windows 7 Pro (64t) DT Computer (Refurbished)
21 April 2015
Summary: Cannot use all the RAM. DVD did not write DVDs - had to buy one for another forty bucks. Win 7 is not set up and running. About 6 hour setup. Finally, all is well and it works. DO NOT GET OFFICE 64 BIT.
