Functionally OK

harley t., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: This is a borderline. I needed a win 7 system quick and this works but the case condition is such that it needs to be on the floor and under the work surface where the appearance is hidden.
  • Pros: Seems to perform satisfactorily. No glitches in getting set up.
  • Cons: Looks like it was just thrown into a big recycle box without care about case damage. Pretty rough.

Well Lets See

Darryl W., Newegg
19 November 2015
  • 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

  • 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.

Extremely disappointed

Zara Ray, Amazon
23 September 2015
  • 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.

Disappointed

john h., Newegg
23 June 2015
  • 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...

ok, but that's about it...

Kelly S., Newegg
17 June 2015
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Summary: The computer worked very well out of the box but did not come with a DVD-RW drive as advertised and developed a password lock that could not be removed after two days of running fine.
