DO NOT BUY

Philip L., Newegg
21 October 2015
  • Pros: Small form factor. Hardware is fine.
  • Cons: I purchased three of these and they are not refurbished properly. I had to reload windows on every single machine. Windows update failed. Installing any other programs failed. I had to do a complete reinstall using up my own license keys for windows. Waist of money and time.

  • Cons: About half of our 35 790's have had the power supply go bad. They have been replaced under warranty, but system is down for a couple of days. No eSATA No USB3

Power Supply Unit within has cheap low-quality capacitors that fail too quickly

N. Verma, Amazon
3 December 2011
  • Summary: Customers certainly look at RAM, CPU and clock speed, HD space, etc etc but nobody looks at the quality of the power supply unit. In it's pursuit of higher profits, Dell has shipped this things out with some really shoddy wiring and piss-poor capacitors (and not enough back-up capacitors) that will...
