Summary: my other HP desktop that was bought brand new went out after a year. I decided I was not going top buy new again and took a chance buying this one. I figured for the price it was worth the risk. So far it has been working great. It is fast and for surfing the web etc its all I need. Only trouble I had was it has no sd card slot and it didn't install correct driver for card reader. After I connected my digital camera I was able to make it work.
Summary: In the system info, I was dismayed to find total-physical-drive size to be below 140GB. (This is the drive-size, BEFORE any data or files are added.) The win 7 and AV software included will occupy another 20-21GB...so expect about 40GB on drive 'C' and 70GB on the other partition. The IR-Mouse arrived 'Cracked', no response to an email I sent about this. Performance is good, but don't expect miracles for the price. Overall, 'Middle of the road' system.
Summary: First, you have to remember these are refurbished units, which means they are USED. I normally build my computers, but needed a cheap computer for my kids to use for school. The software on this is a genuine copy of win 7 pro, it hasn't been activated yet, you will have to activate it via the internet or phone. Until you do this, it will warn you about not being genuine. I also recommend popping the top off this thing, just to make sure nothing has come loose.
Summary: I'm very happy with my DC7900 computer. It has great performance (the Windows Experience ratings were higher than expected), and the only problem I've had was easily resolved by installing an updated video driver. It runs fast, runs cool and runs quiet.. a great product at a great price!
Summary: The TB hard drive was a needed upgrade from my old PC. Only issue so far is that, while setting it up I installed a program that I decided I didn't want after all. Uninstall didn't get everything, so I tried system restore. It ran, rebooted, then gave an error message that the system restore failed. Now that everything is up & running the way I want it, I may try again.
Summary: Bought from the refurbisher(AST) a couple of times so the great quality I got was expected. I don't post reviews often but I had to because I am just a very content customer. Love all the specs on the computer but more importantly their warranty and customer service.
