Summary: Good computer at a very good price. I'm in the "middle of the sticks" and don't have a lot of opportunity to buy locally, so am happy to have access to an online source with great prices....this was cheaper than the big box stores if I had driven an hour and a half to buy it!
Summary: I bought this PC. Suddenly wireless adaptor stopped working. I contacted one of their 'so called' technician/expert, also posted to their support forum. That expert says that Windows 8 does not have any mandatory updates to connect to VPN.
Summary: This is a follow up to the previously posted review. I successfully installed a new motherboard but saddly continued to have the same problem. Installtion of a different hard disk solved the problem. My final diagnosis is that the hard disk would occasionally fail after long periods of idle.
Pros: Low cost system. Shipping was great (as always).
Cons: Product used a hard drive that would fail after idle periods leading to a crash of the system and a failure to find a boot device upon reboot.
Summary: I purchased this model of computer 2 years ago, save mine had a 8 gb hard drive instead of 6. I paid over 800 for it at Walmart....and when all is said and done, yes it is still running.....But it has completely failed twice and has been taken in for repairs 5 times....
Pros: Shipping was awesome as always (I love newegg)
Cons: This system was fine for a week or so after delivery. Then it just went down hill from there (big time). The system frequently crashes and reboots to report that it can't find a boot disk. I reinstalled windows 7 numerous times using the recovery partition of the hard drive, tried removing the od...
Cons: I purchased a refurbished computer from newegg on July 12th. It arrived on the 18th. I opened the box to find a poorly packaged computer. The computer was scratched up and dirty. It did not resemble any referb I had purchased before.
Poorly Packaged, heat sinks packed with dust and dirt

Summary: I am very disappointed with the condition of what is bieng called refurbished. Well refurbished I buy has always been clean and proffesionally packed. Came in a box with a few peices of foam to seperate items but they were just bouncing around inside. Heard something sliding inside case.
Pros: Nice Size Screen, Well equipped for the price
Cons: Hdd already failed, scratches all over, refurbished I know but really. Keyboard stand attachments missing. Poorly packaged. Came filled with dirt and dust. Again refurbished should be cleaned. Fan came in disconnected from CPU.
Summary: I've had this computer for 14 months. I bought this computer from Office Max. Computer performance was great, processing speed was never an issue. However, 8 weeks past the 1 year warranty I get the "hard drive imminent failure" error.
Summary: Who ever packed the computer really should have made sure that all the contents should have been in there before shipping it, it is really annoying to open a box and look through all the content and be missing a nice little key component like that.
Pros: Quad core. 8 gigs, plenty of room to upgrade
Cons: Didn't come with a mouse. Not really a super big problem but since it was suppose to come with one I am only going to give 4 stars, I would really appreciate it if I could get the mouse that it was suppose to come with, but I doubt that will happen.
