Summary: I used the machine for running some memory-intensive job, and as a backup server. It works smoothly, though the video card is a cheap one, so I had to replace it to accommodate my touch-screen monitor.
Summary: I change my review with pleasure. My order was damaged in transit. The damage didn't show. However everything went wrong with the damaged computer. This supplier sent me a replacement before I shipped the first one back so I'd have a box to return the old one in. Talk about going that extra distance, This is it. The only reason this isn't a 5 is that the computer doesn't have a feature or two I need in my research. Nobody's fault but mine.
Summary: New hard drive, new Win 7 64 bit OS and added Wi Fi sold me on this refurbished machine over other vendor's offerings-- that appeared to be sold more "as-is". Having started out life as a business workstation, it has an extra large case designed for easy upgrades. Some minor exterior scratches reflect the age and use of this computer, but I'm a little scruffy myself. Bottom line-- you won't find a shiny new machine with this performance level anywhere near this price.
Summary: I love the HP Z400. It is fast and I mean very very fast. I have found nothing to dislike about the HP Z400. I would tell anyone looking for a desktop to purchase the Z400, because you will happy.

Summary: I have been upgrading my old computers piecemeal to extend their usable life a few more years. The OS Hard Drive of one of my old HP Pavilion computers died so I am looking to fix that. I bought this $249.99 buy now HP Z400 from pcdeals09 and did not expect much. The Z400 comes with Win7 Pro installed plus other useful software without any bloatware.
Summary: works as expected. Was delivered quickly and packed well. Thats really a positive experence. Many computers have issues from not working, hanging up, reverting to another setup etc This computers does the job very well. Have been able to install my old drives so I could transfer what I needed. Has the power to allow me to work with all my adobe web products from photoshop, illustrator dreamweaver etc. Also like the fact it responds quickly.

Excerpt: Although the Z400 on paper might not be as powerful as the Z800, the performance will not be disappointing especially for those looking to run Adobe creative suites. We brought these models in to do exactly that and they have no trouble in running these programs and after effects. The Z400 comes in a mid aluminium tower with a host of front panel ports including DVD Multi-recordable LightSCribe drive, two USB 2.0 slots, headphone and microphone port, and a 3.5-inch media...
