Summary: I would recommend this to people who are experienced messing with the internals of computers. It's a cheap alternative when you need a capable PC for a specific task, but you may need to tweak it to get it running and functioning the way you need.
Pros: A good computer in small form factor, easy to open and to access components. I bought this to serve a specific function: serving as a home recording studio computer - this met the specs of my software, and I did not need any more bells and whistles. I have not yet installed or used the software, ...
Cons: There were several issues with the computer when it arrived, and was not ready to plug in and use.

Summary: Computer works good, never could get it registered, said maybe blackmarket program, called seller the only answer I got was follow the instructions you got with the computer, no other support.
Summary: when the promotion doesn't equal the actual product, it kinda leaves a bad egg taste in your mouth........
Pros: unit hardware works fine
Cons: promotion said unit had win 7 pro, unit was shipped with 7 home... Purchase HP DC5800 - AMD Athlon Dual Core - 2.6ghz - 2GB - 80GB - DVD - Win Professional - Recertified at Newegg.com and receive a $10 Newegg.com Visa Prepaid Card
Summary: Except for the techs sloppy work in putting the computer back together everything seems fine. Interesting to note that it has two key codes. One for Vista, and another for "Win 7 for refurbished computers."
Pros: Nice price for it's speed.
Cons: Screws missing on side panel. Back plate missing, Hard-drive loose in case rattling around.
Summary: My elderly, vision-impaired, housebound step-dad called from Az. and asked if I had a spare computer I could send him when his 12 y/o antique went up in smoke last month. The internet on a magnified widescreen monitor he got from VA is virtually his only form of entertainment.
Summary: newegg needs to have a talk to their shippers.If this would have been a new computer i would have sent it back.
Pros: it seems to work find after a slow start
Cons: -1 egg looked like someone had kicked the box and their was a dent in the side of the case.-1 egg would not come up at 1st, hard drive only had 2 screws holding in, not four and was moving around.Pushed in connectors on hd and it worked .
