Summary: I really liked this computer. I got this because my even older computer broke, and I wasn't yet ready to get a deluxe computer. So, I got this and also ordered a bunch of stuff to extend its life like additional RAM, wireless card, SSD drive so it had two drives, SATA cable, and a card so I could hook up a second monitor to it. After I reconfigured this computer, it was great for a basic computer.
Summary: I purchased an HP factory refurbished HP 500-214 desktop from walmart.com a few months ago and was so impressed I decided to get this Joy Systems refurbished HP DC5700 for my dad next. I had been looking for a replacement for his old XP pc and this was more than $100 cheaper than the first computer I bought and sounded like a great deal.
Summary: My husband needed a pc as his went belly up. This is our 2nd pc so didn't want to spend a lot of money nor was I prepared too!! Right out of the box it's been a real keeper!! Needed to download a few things toolbar, bookmarks, Wi-Fi, etc but haven't had any problems so far. We've had it for a week now and it been running strong with no problems at all. If you're looking for and inexpensive way to buy a pc this is it!!
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.
