Dell OptiPlex 780 Core 2 Duo 3.0GHz 4GB 1.5TB Windows 7 Pro 64-bit Desktop PC (Refurbished)
22 May 2014
Summary: tried to save money and go the refurbished route but so far nothing but grief . started malfunctioning right out of the box. . luckily customer service at overstock is top notch and working with them for a resolution.
Summary: I have bought refurbished desktops and laptops before from other companies for myself and employees. I am pretty technologically savvy. I had been using an XP based system, which was a refurb I had owned for 10 years. But, the time had come to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8 with XP support fading. I wanted a faster system, so rather than rebuild the current box, I just tried this out from Overstock. I took it right out of the box and pugged it in....so far so good.
Summary: The computer is acting up a little strange. The screen is shaking up and down in an uncontrollable way and now I have to get a tech out to my office to figure out what's wrong with it. I was skeptical at first to get a refurbished computer but I went ahead any way, and I think I should have gone with my gut feeling. Anyhow I don't think I will make a similar purchase in the future.
