Summary: My HP desktop tower crashed after my son installed malware on it when downloading a videogame, so I bought this refurbished computer to try to keep the costs down on replacing my broken computer. I have used this type of computer at work and they seem very stable.
Summary: Ok computer, purchased for my kids, but we had to send it back to the manufacturer due to a defect. They were pretty awesome, replaced instead of repairing. Glad I purchased the warranty with it, otherwise we would have been stuck with a non-functional computer.
Summary: Pros: The price was cheap for a Windows 7 Pro 64 bit system. The 3.0Ghz chipset is pretty fast for most standard uses, the 4Gb RAM is fine for most uses. Out of the box, I opened up the CPU and was pleasantly surprised to see how clean it was. Not a spec of dust, etc.
Pros: - 3.0Ghz chipset - 4Gb RAM - Windows 7 Pro 64 bit - Good price
Cons: - Windows 7 Pro laptop version?? - Mixed RAM sticks - Noisy HD - Cheap Keyboard/mouse
Pros: runs as fast as I expected. good memory for what I need
Cons: win 7 pro operating system was not authentic. cost me more to get a new number but not as much as it would have cost to send it back. won't make this mistake again. could have bought a new system for what it ended up costing me.
Summary: The computer is as good as I hoped. Only 2 problems. 1. 197 windows updates before I could do anything else. ( not the sellers fault I know.) 2. DVD drive will not open---makes noise but not open.
Summary: Despite the amazingly poor packaging, everything was present and in working order.
Pros: I've always preferred my monitor in portrait aspect, that is, taller than it is wide. Alas, the rest of the world likes them ever wider and shorter. Very few monitors can rotate, even though most graphic desktops will happily rotate to match. One of the images in the ad showed the monitor standin...
Cons: I was horrified to find a split-open, worn-out cardboard box dumped in my driveway, the contents exposed to the weather. The monitor and the desktop case were surrounded by foam cages, which might have sufficed in an intact box. The monitor has a four-inch-long cut in the plastic screen surface.
