Summary: I used to maintain these computers years ago. They are well built, reliable pc's. The one I received looks good, the hard drive and fans are quiet. I blew away the OS that came with it and installed my own. I also added RAM. Everything worked as expected. The only problem was that the front panel headphone jack was intermittent. Could not use it. The rear headphone jack was fine so I don't care.
Summary: I setup this PC on the 12th of September. Since then I've had problems with the system. I did contact Joy Systems concerning the problems with the PC. I will not purchase another refurbished electronic item ever again. I am thinking about returning it.
Summary: Bought refurbished because I needed Windows 7 especially so I could get Microsoft Office Starter 2010 because that is where I do most of my work. Guess what! Microsoft Office, ect. has been deleted from the refurbished product. Also no external sound although I can ear perfectly with headphones. Will probably have to buy speakers. No great expense but come on people! I can live with a few glitches but to say I'm disappointed is an understatement.
