Summary: I have used these Dell workstations for several years now. Never disappointed. Older models are available used on eBay and still work great. This recent purchase was for a friend who needed an upgrade from an old windows XP system.
Summary: I really didn't get this as a workstation, but instead more of finding the best value for a discount high power PC. This uses some legacy parts, but the main innards punch way above its price, matching mi level i5s still.
Good machine for the money. Cheap to upgrade. Reliable.

Summary: Xeon Powerhouse in a small case. Although these are a few generations behind I really like the one I am using. With some minor upgrades these machines are great for basic use up to mid range gaming. At the point of this review parts keep getting cheaper and cheaper.
Summary: Very pleased. The PC is eerily quiet. A pleasant surprise for one loaded with a nicer Video Card. I even tried to get some noise out of it by playing one of my son's Steam games along with an Internet Video. Result? Still quiet and no lagging. I might have to buy another for this price.

Summary: Computer was poorly packaged. Front of computer off and bent. Front bottom right corner off computer bent. Had to reform case to get front bezel back on. Box totally destroyed. Case was repairable.
Summary: The computer was received configured as advertised, even a bit better, but with packaging issues. Bubble wrap and peanuts is not the best way to ship a heavy workstation class computer. It should've been packed in custom spray foam for proper support during shipping.
