Understated features

,, TigerDirect.com
22 April 2014
  • Summary: All the features listed are there and give good value and good replacement system for XP users. However, the unit description doesn't mention the optical drive is lightscribe capable, a feature I use. I thought I would have to buy a drive and replace the built-in one. Also, the unit came with a multi-media interface for five different memory cards. With Windows 7 which will not expire until January 2020, you would be hard press to get this much at such a low price.

Missing Windows 7 Disc

Dennis G., Newegg
12 March 2014
  • Pros: The PC itself works as expected. Just using it to monitor surveillance cameras and record over the air T.V. broadcasts. I rated it 1 egg because it was supposed to ship with a Windows 7 Professional CD because there is not backup partition on the small hard drive it came with.
  • Cons: It was supposed to ship with a Windows 7 Professional CD because there is not backup partition on the small hard drive it came with.

Not a Good Deal

James L., Newegg
21 January 2014
  • Summary: The computer arrived very well packaged and the unit is in good shape cosmetically. However, I never would have purchased this computer if I had really known what I was getting. I can't fault the refurbisher, since everything works, but if the specs had been more detailed I would not have purchased nor would I recommend that anyone else do so. There are other refurbished computers that are much better values in this price range.
  • Pros: Small form factor. Clean. Worked out of the box.
  • Cons: Ancient technology. This computer is equipped with an AMD Athlon 64 3500+, single core, socket 939 CPU and 512 MB RAM DIMMS.

Not a bad SFF, but can do better

Guy C., Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Think about what you will use this for, and if you bring up half a dozen applications, or browser windows, or tabs in a browser, you probably want more than 2GB of RAM. Look at RAM recommendations for Quicken, Turbo TAX and other apps you use to see if this will fit your needs.
  • Pros: Small form factor, but still able to use low cost but capable graphics cards. I used one of these with Windows 7 and XBMC to build an HTPC capable of reaching content on my NAS and it works great.
  • Cons: RAM capacity is the chokepoint. I only use this for XBMC, so not an issue, but if this were used as a desktop PC with a browser and a few other applications running, performance would be impacted by things paging. In my HTPC build I got around this, for the most part, by using an SSD as the OS drive. They are cheap enough now to make this usable.

Never done this before - review without buying

edward c., Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Should play decade+ old games without much issue, but I bet you can't even play D2 online without lag.
  • Pros: For everything you get its a decent deal (was gonna take Win 7 key[the only thing in the whole package worth more than $15), DVD burner, HDD and ram, scrap the rest, its all garbage- which is why I thought the Shell shocker price might be something more reasonable)
  • Cons: The things an obsolete dinosaur.
