Summary: The unit would only operate about an hour before rebooting. I sent it back for a refund. The hard drive was very noisy. The keyboard and mouse, that shipped with the unit, were very low quality. Given the above experience combined with the observed low product quality and poor quality control of the refurbishment, I can not recommend this product.
Summary: This PC is very powerful but I had a couple of issues with it. I wanted to install VM and run various OSs for testing some programs and applications. this worked. Buyer was able to assist with some VM required settings. Howver, this PC made a lot of noise as if it is accessing or reading from the hard drive. They sent a new optical drive. Did not bother to replace. Just managed it. Howver 2 weeks later. It crashed completely.
Summary: Had nothing but problems since I got it out of the box. Many problems with the applications. Have a call into the company that refurbished the processor. If I don't get results, I will write HP and copy Wal-Mart on the letter. Hope to get some results soon.
Summary: This PC doesn't display anything at beginning, thought it was a defect system or broken during shipment. Contacted the seller who told me I have to use the DVI, the on board VGA port has no signal.
Summary: Compatibility and setting up programs from previous computer a major issue. Need easier way to set up and transfer data so it is functional. Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 is a major change for programs. The machine appears to be very functional with speed but compatibility with programs an issue.
