Pros: Got it on shellshocker sale for $299. Great price for a nice Xeon and 8gb ecc ram with a server grade mobo and PSU. Haven't used or tested the HDD that came with it, but the graphics card it came with works fine, as does everything else.
Cons: The lower sata power cable only has 3 outputs for the lower 3 bays. That means that if you want to put a 2xSSD rack in one of the bays, you'll need a sata power splitter. I found one on [censored](that other ecommerce site) for about $6 though, so it's not a huge deal. Just something to be aware of.
Summary: I purchased an Intel 535 SSD (240GB) and put in a spare AMD R7 370 (2G) that I had lying around. I also did a quick upgrade to Windows 10 (Pro). This system so far has been pretty stable and relatively quick. I use it as a video capture rig for when I do youtube videos.
Pros: Xeon E3-1240 and 8GB of ECC ram! 2tb HDD, Very clean on the inside. As Configured GeekBench 32 Scores: Single Core 2637 Multi Core 10527 Windows 7 Professional (for refurbished PCs) key included on case. With an Easy upgrade to Windows 10 Pro
Cons: One single ram chip, will need to purchase another chip to have dual channel memory. The included NVS 300 is a little weak compared to days specs.
Pros: Have purchased 3 of these for customers over the past several months and am very impressed. With the exception of the video card, the components in these machines are top-notch. Cosmetically they are nearly perfect, and I don't see how you could possibly get more performance for the money. Very s...
Summary: I want to upgrade to Win 10 but not getting the little ICON telling me to do this. That worries me but will do more research.
Pros: Runs fine right out of the box. Windows only had to download 48 fixes. Last time I loaded windows 7 on a box it downloaded almost 200. Cool graphics adapter Y-cable to support 2 monitors. Not problems with loose HD as some stated. That was the first thing I checked. Fot the $299 I paid for it thi...
Cons: The video adapter is DVI on both ends of the cable no VGA so being the hoarder of PC stuff I had an adapter laying around.
Summary: Bought this to play better games and put a 750ti in it right away since it comes with a stock 400W power supply. Works extremely well. I'll come back to update if it dies within a year, but as of right now, this is a fantastic machine for the price (purchased on a shellshocker deal $329.99).
Summary: Windows index is 7.6 for CPU and Memory. Upgraded one system with a GT-740 adapter, which gave it a 7.3 rating on the graphic side of things.
Pros: Xeon Power (like i-7, shows 8 processor threads), 8GB of RAM and 2TB Harddrive. Bought three of these by now, two of them with on a Shell Shocker sale. Lots of computing power for the money. Systems are clean, come with 1 year warranty. Windows 7 Professional is included as well. This is a solid ...
Cons: Not really a con, but the graphic adapter (Quadro NV295S) is somewhat outdated. Suggest to spend the money on a better card. One system had a mix and match on the RAM sticks.
Summary: Great HP Z210 unit with power and performance. All positive features with this machine for an I5 processor. We only wish we would have bought an I7 unit because of the application we run and for future uses.
Excellent spec and performance for the price - TAKE NOTE: 3 Year Warranty Included!

Summary: When I ordered this I was about to purchase the additional third party 3 year extended warranty included on the item description page (an extra £90) but thought I'd check the spec of the machine on the HP site to see what was included.
