Summary: I was needing an Avid-Certified tower to run Avid audio recording software and, eventually, Avid video editing software. The features provided on this terminal were ideal, although I was at first a wee bit leery of the term 'refurbished' in the description.
Pros: This computer was simply amazing!!!! I was able to run minecraft on fancy settings with absolutely no lag! Also tetris hd, no problem for this beast machine! I do not regret this purchase at all even though I didnt spend a single dollar, I stole the entire amount from various homeless throughout ...
Cons: the only bad thing was that this computer was so good that I was unable to leave for several days causing my wife to leave me, my dog to die of starvation, and my job to fire me. But it was all worth it because i built a castle in minecraft.
Summary: To address the other commenter, who is one of those that comment on something they don't own or know anything about. When you built your machine, just because you bought the same amount of ram, an i7 and a terabyte HD doesn't mean you came close to building a machine like this.
Pros: Dual 6 core xeons, liquid cooling, 3 fans for hard drives, 2 fans for RAM, dual video cards, up to 192 GB ram, 4 HD slots, beautiful case design. Excellent air flow channeling, No tool case extends to hard drives and optical drives, 1180 watt power supply that pulls out with a locking handle.
Cons: Way too expensive, just built a system with quad-core i7, same HD, same memory, same for less than third of this price. Ridiculous. Just because it has a xeon in it, doesn't mean it's a workstation, or that it's worth this price.
Summary: i purchased this unit because my single xeon server was no longer up to the video task i use it for. I am quite pleased, the vendor called to make sure the hard drives were configured as i wanted, it was shipped quickly and arrive before i expected.
Summary: The computer I ordered was not the one shipped. I have an 8 core 16 hyperthread hP Z800. The unit has 12 gig ram and is very efficient and quiet compared to my pc. I was amazed at how many internal cooling fans it has.
Summary: The DVD-RW didn’t work when powerup, pressing the button didn’t work and it cannot be seen from the OS. I contacted the support engineer and they are quick and nice to advice me that it might be due to the cable unplugged accidentally during delivery.
