Pros: Since I used a partition tool to clean up the HDD, it's a great little machine for the money. It passed all its other tests with flying colors.
Cons: Both the original and the replacement had software issues. The OS in the former was apparently corrupted because I couldn't download any updates. The latter kept crashing until I worked out that someone had loaded a different version of Windows 7 without updating the MBR.
Summary: i bought it and i like how cheap and easy it is, but, I'm angry, it came without an important piece on one of the monitors! it is the part on the monitor that connects the video driver to the monitor
Summary: Just because a person put an object on it's side and it makes it look taller doesn't change what it is. Other than that... HP Business Products have been robust and have integrated amenities that usually go above and beyond what the competitors provide. For example.

Summary: This would have gotten a better review if, the built-in video card or the secondary video card had worked out of the box. But because they didn't (neither of the two vga ports worked) I had to have the secondary video card replaced at the cost of $60 for a new video card and $50 for labor for a...
Summary: A great starter for what it costs. If your needing a computer, this will last you well long enough till you can get something much better.
Pros: It has plenty of room for improvements but this is rather stumped as well due to manufacture fault (no compatible power replacement) For work and school it works great however when it comes down to entertaining whether by watching videos/movies or by playing simple games it lacks entirely.
Cons: Processor, hard drive and DVD disk drive all has failed after a year of use. Had to be replace. anything more that fails you would find your money better placed in something else

Summary: this computer is very fast out of the box. but it was out of like 500 updates. which it took a very long time to download and install... the reason I give it a 3 star rating is because it comes naked not basic office starter programs it comes also with an outdated internet explorer.
Summary: These machines rate as off lease not refurbished..
Pros: Very good platform for normal business workstations. No bloatware & in reasonably good condition as far as case goes. Core 2 Duo 3ghz cpu is fast.
Cons: Have purchased several of these machines & must say that US Micro IS NOT performing a viable refurb on these machines as the hard drives have ranged from 28K to 47K of power on hour time on hard drives which is unacceptable. I have had to replace all the hard drives at an additional 60$ cost not ...

Summary: I was fortunate to have an extra stick of memory to put into this machine and lucky that is all it was. I am still pleased with the purchase but it is a refurbished product and you just really never know what kind of results you may get from such a purchase
Pros: The PC was in very good condition once I solved the problem, it operated very well. It is priced very well and I am pleased with the results
Cons: Sorry to say but this PC had bad memory installed. When I first tried to boot it up I couldn't get any video, although everything else seem to function well. I went to HP website to analyze the beep codes I got when I turn the PC on. and it stated that it was a bad video card or bad memory. I rep...
