It works as advertised, but is older technology.

  • Summary: My mother needed a replacement computer for her media center machine. Her Intel-based HP computer had a motherboard failure and replacement was going to cost well over $100 just for parts.
  • Pros: Excellent price for a warrantied machine Windows 7 64 bit with a COA sticker and built in recovery image (but no physical disks) PCI-express 1x and a 16x (8x max capability?) slots if better graphics hardware is required. Nearly tool-free case design. Extra 3.5" hard drive bay BIOS options are fr...
  • Cons: BTX design is no longer being developed. This is circa 2007. Integrated video is older tech and lacks today's hardware acceleration and decoding capabilities. It is fine for office work and compatible with windows vista/7 and perhaps higher. BIOS is largely corporate centric for IT professionals ...

  • Summary: I bought this computer to replace a failed HP tower my mother was using for a media center PC. The other HP (actually a model 2 years newer than this thing) popped a 1/2 dozen caps and wasn't worth the hassle of repair.
  • Pros: Dual Core 2ghz x2 3800 on AM2 socket 4 ram slots, 2 populated. motherboard, power supply, and other interior parts look to be in very good condition, and very clean.

  • Cons: This PC is already long in tooth, and a couple years older than I thought (circa 2006) x300 integrated graphics, very old tech nowadays.

  • Summary: Shipped quickly. Computer worked fine. Was not a Dual Core processor which was a big disappointment. I bought a dual core processor and it worked great for a couple of days until lightning hit our house and now it does not start. Can't blame the supplier for that though.

Do not buy

  • Excerpt: This was my first time buying a refurbished computer, HUGE mistake. I let it sit for several weeks because I didn't have time to transfer all my software over. It constantly freezes. USB drives do not recognize hardware plugged into them. Only recognizes my printer when I restart computer.

recertified is a loose term

  • Summary: the rma process was relatively painless. just frustrated that i needed an rma at all
  • Pros: cheap basic computer. one of the two i bought actually had a dual core cpu
  • Cons: both units i bought had to have the dvd drive rma'd. one of them also needed the hdd rma'd. evidently they don't do a lot of testing on these.
