Summary: I received the unit with a huge noise when moving the box. I had to open the computer to realize that the hard drive was in no way screw ed. Inside the computer was not even clean. Large pieces of dust, hair and debris was free inside. As a technician I never complained to me.
Summary: I will not be buying refurbished items from newegg. I am waiting for warranty company so I'm out of a computer until they response. DO NOT BUY REFURBISHED....
Cons: Had unit for one day. Received the unit, set up the same day. The next day the unit will not boot up. I can't get it to do anything. I called for warranty and they tell me the can send me another hard drive, but they are having a problem finding the SN. I am waiting for response from warranty com...
Summary: I expected more for refurbished - more than just loading a fresh copy of Windows on the thing. It even had a 250gb SATA hard drive in it originally from a Dell Equalogic - how ancient must that drive be?
Pros: Cheap. Functional. Comes with a copy of Windows for less than the price of Windows. Built like a tank.
Cons: Disgusting. Barely "refurbished". Not even cleaned, full of office fuzz and gunk that had to be cleaned out. Front panel and case is beat up.
Summary: I bought this on sale for about $95 [and free shipping] and also got a $20 rebate which was available at the time. I do virtual work and needed a machine that had minimal features but would work well.
Pros: All components worked out of the box. Great price.
Summary: I bougght 2 of these, 1 for my daughter, 1 for son-in-law to replace Windows XP computers. I am pleased with these computers. I did upgrade them to Windows 8.1 64-bit that I purchased separately. These computers are fast, and work well. My "kids" are very pleased and impressed with them.
Pros: Smaill size, 64-bit system, comes with DVD burner (most come with only DVD ROM).
Cons: Box shipped in is way to big, could ship in smaller box.
Summary: I would recommend this to anyone lookin for a budget PC. its not a massive gamer but it will take just about anything else you can throw at it. I have yet to find an issue with it.
Pros: I love this machine. Installed XBMC and hooked up to my entertainment center and canceled my cable account. Runs like a striped ape and no probs what so ever. Too bad they ran out or I'd buy a few more.
Cons: 2gb ram, 80 gb hdd, but I aint complaining. I got all my movies stored elsewhere and XBMC does the rest.
