Summary: I've had this computer for about 10 days. I was excited to recieve it but, I couldn't get around to setting it up for a week. A few nights ago, I started setting it up and ran into problems updating and several error codes popped up. THEN all of a sudden, it seemed to be installing updates and it got to 24 of 163 and stayed there. When I woke up Friday morning, it was still in the same place.
Summary: FAST SET UP. CAME WELL PACKAGED AND LOOKS LIKE NEW. VERY QUIET FAN ANSD LOTS OF USB PORTS GREAT NOT TO HAVE ALL THE COMERCIAL AD ONS THAT USUALLY COMES WITH A NEW WINDOWS 7 COMPUTER. DECIDED TO BUY THIS RATHER THAN WINDOWS 8 OR 8.1. TOO MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE NEW WINDOWS. BESIDES I COULD USE MY QUICKENS 10 AND MICROSOFT WORKS DISC ON THIS UNIT WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS TOOK ABOUT 2 HOURS TO DOWN LOAD ALL THE WINDOWS 7 UP DATES. EXPECTED IT TO TAKE MUCH LONGER.
Summary: Great value for the money. Searching for PC (tower only) for my father. Needed for web surfing and e-mail. This tower exceeded my expectations. The fact that it was refurbished didn't frighten me. Good warranty. I extended the warranty for 3 years at a great cost. Shipping to local Walmart is great. Entire process was wonderful experience. I will purchase this way in the future.
