Excerpt: Machine works (almost) exactly as advertised. We do graphic design, and video editing - so the video card, and hard drive expansion options were a huge part of our purchase decision. The only issue that came up for us, was when we went to add the extra drives. There wasn't a power cable to any of the drive bays from the motherboard. I'm not sure if this was a mistake from the factory, or that's how it comes but it was the first time I'd ever seen that.
Knowing what I know now , I would not buy this product

Summary: I bought this workstation for my small business not realizing the it does not come with a graphics card. I would not have it bought for that reason alone because of the inconvenience and downtime involved in getting a graphics card from a third party. I strongly feel that the seller could have made explicitly clear in specs " NO Graphics Card". Instead they, perhaps selectively, included "Graphics processor" in the specs which I regretfully assumed was a graphics card.
Summary: Although I have recently purchased an HP z420 workstation, I have not purchased the product in this listing. I would warn potential buyers that the listing states (7.13) that the system includes a Tesla C2075 co-processor as graphics card. This would seem to be an impossibility for the stated system price of $1,248.79 as the C2075 alone costs about $1,790 as you can see elsewhere on Amazon. Even used, a C2075 costs more than the price for this system.
Summary: Came with the Video card removed from the computer didn't even have the cover plate, so obviously it had one that had been removed. Also beware of the 64 GB of Ram keep reading to see that its only 6. Really can get a better machine for much less other places.
Summary: This computer is amazing. It is very robustly built and blazingly fast with the 6-core xeon processor, and with the addition of an Nvidia Quadro 4000 graphics card and another 16 gig of 1600 MHz memory, it runs Autodesk applications like Maya and Mudbox like a breeze. Very pleased with it!!
Summary: Kauf: 21.08.2012 – 1.360,46 € problemlos über Amazon. Bis jetzt (Nov.2012) bin ich mit der Wahl zufrieden. Der Rechner arbeitet schnell und ist mit einer Asus Ati Radeon EAH6850 DirectCU–Grafikkarte relativ leise. (Bildbearbeitung: Adobe-PS6 - Videobearbeitung: Magix-Video Pro 4) – Internetanschluss über Fritz!WLAN USB Stick N. Der vom Design her unspektakuläre, aber leicht zu wartende Rechner wird ohne Grafikkarte geliefert.
