5 out of 5 eggsThey Continue to keep going, even as Win10 workstations!

Pros: These computers are well worth your money if you are looking to get a reliable computer and not have to put a new mortgage on your house to get it. I am the IT Admin of a Church, and my goal was to get these computers upgraded from this hodgepodge of Win 98 & XP computers to something from this decade.

Right off the bat, you should notice that you are getting a computer with windows 7 Pro for the price of a hot dog. This is well worth taking advantage of, because why would you want to limit yourself?

Computer performance has been very reliable, and I have not had any issues with the existing hardware. As of this writing, all the computers have been upgraded to windows 10, and they are working great minus the flaws with the OS itself. These are up to the task of Window 10, so don't think they are not.

Another nice feature is this series of Towers allows for Door Locking, intended to prevent unauthorized access to internal components.

I would classify these as a high end workstation, a mid level multimedia system (the performance is OK), and a low-mid gaming system (Its an Optiplex...). Daily task use for these computers is office work (Office, accounting, etc...) and PowerPoint presentations. Some photo editing and artwork creation takes places, as well as some website editing. I purchased some low end Nvidia cards to enable multi-monitor support, and they work well. I had to upgrade, because windows 10 did not support the older video cards. Nonetheless, these computers have showed they are up to the task of being staying current without complaint.

My best advice is if you are tight on money (like our Church), this series has been a godsend (Pun Intended :P )

Cons: WYSIWYG. Box contained the Tower, a Keyboard, a Mouse, and a Windows 7 Disc. For those who are interested, these USB ports were only up to 2.0 spec instead of 3.0 spec. the MB also has 1 PCIe X2 & X16 port. The MB Supports IDE Cables (I was adding a 2nd CD-RW), however the included Power Supply does not offer 4-pin power, only SATA power.

Your actual computer may vary, but none of mine came with the HDMI Ports shown in the picture.

Only other Issue I have personally is the lack of availability for Wake-on LAN option in the MB. These computers are not near each other, and It would've been nice to remotely access this equipment. Alas, I guess the exercise will do me good :)

Other Thoughts: I reviewed this back in February. I now own a total of 3 off these, and they have all worked splendidly. Well Worth the purchase over buying something new!

1 - CD/DVD Expansion Slot
2 - Front USB 2.0 Ports
2 - Front Audio Ports (One Out, One In)
6 - Rear USB 2.0 Ports
1 - VGA Video Port
2 - Rear Audio Port (One out, One In)
1 - legacy Parallel Port
1 - legacy Serial Port
450W Power Supply Unit with SATA extensions ONLY.

5 out of 5 eggsgood bargain

Pros: great price
tons of drive space

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This was a great bargain for 250 bucks. Works fine. It was bare bones, I added CD DVD burner (was read only, enough to get up and running) and graphics card.

Upgraded it a year later with 250GB SSD and GTX 750Ti graphics card, bigger (600 watt) PSU, and maxed out the RAM (8 gigs). No pro or gamers rig but a good home system that's taken tons of constant all around use with no problems.

I left the old hard drive in for added storage, use the SSD as primary drive. Then swapped the old HDD for an 80 gig Western Digital 10k RPM Velociraptor HDD that was lying around. Not a hot rig but it "gets me around town", good enough for a bits and pieces home machine.

The upgrades were more to lighten the load, "chug through most stuff" rather than expecting it to fly like a hot rig. If approached, used as what it is, it's a great home use bargain PC.

Very happy with purchase, have gotten tons of use out of it already.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellect product, and priced right!

Pros: This computer is fantastic! runs great, looks like a fresh copy of Windows 7 installed, and all ports, chips, and drives work. Buying more soon!

Cons: WYSIWYG. The computer includes just chat, the tower, a keyboard, and a mouse. No discs, no software installed except for a couple of Dell bloatware programs.

3 out of 5 eggsobsolete today

Pros: I have a Dell Vostro 200 mini desktop with 3.0 GHz core-2-duo, 4 GB ram maxxed, Win 7 pro. The DVD drive isn't a writer. It is barely powerful enough to browse today's web. With more than a few browser windows opened, the ram runs 80% used and it starts using Swap file and loses stability. Onboard audio has no functionality besides selecting inputs and outputs, like an equalizer would be nice, but now I'm getting picky. Never had a problem with a hard drive selected by Dell, although one day SSDs will finally appear in refurbs. At least this one come with ram maxxed; I had to throw out two 1 GB sticks and add two 2 GB sticks from

And mine only a VGA video out.

Cons: These Newegg refurbs would do everyone a favor if they would specify which microprocessor they contain. There are a bunch of 3 GHz core-2-duos, some are worth a lot more than others, so you can't know if this Dell is a good deal for the money.

Other Thoughts: For a microprocessor, I recommend an i3, i5, or i7. It should be able to run [at least] four threads (either 4 cores or 2 cores with hyperthreading -- cross reference your specific CPU with wikipedia). Divide the processor's amount of L3 cache by the number of threads, and you'll want 3/4 MB cache per thread, average, minimum.

Although 4 GB ram was enough for XP, it isn't enough for Win7; I would say 8 GB is minimum -- more if you're going to edit video files.

If you play games, you'll want more video than these machines provide. Newer "i" computers might have sufficient onboard video, but check the web for specific advice about your preferred game. Personally, my preferred "game" is distributed computing projects, and they don't need video capabilites, just a good, energy efficient processor.

Minor problem like DVD drives that don't write -- can be helped with external USB writer.

Another video monitor might require a USB video dongle or a video card. This computer will certainly NOT accept the biggest newest internal video cards, but it's another option, besides USB dongles, for better video performance and addition video outputs for multi-monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little workstation

Pros: Specs are perfect for our application (Aloha Point of Sale)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've bought about 10 of these to use as servers for Aloha and every one of them has come to me in great condition with just minor cosmetic damage that you would expect in a refurbished PC. All have come very well packed as to not incur damage in shipping.

3 out of 5 eggsGood enough but...

Pros: A lot of bang for the buck for most users. Clean unit.

Cons: A missing video card driver (Microsoft installed one of course but I didn't catch it) cost me a trip back to the customers house. I had to take 2 stars off for this...sorry. You can not ship a machine out with a microsoft graphics driver IMO. I would never do it.

Other Thoughts: A little slop inside the box on packaging. I would not have let it go across the country like this.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

Pros: Cost effective. A big positive step from XP (yes we were dragging our feet on these 2 units - took momentary physical failures & true end of XP to get us to buy new CPUs...if it ain't broke). No fuss, nice to have a really clean machine

Cons: You will likely want to update the video card driver (until you do you'll get intermittent and momentary black screens while surfing the net). Yes the included keyboard and mouse are basic, but they are new. The power cord seats okay but not super-firm/secure at the CPU. Came loaded with IE8 (slightly outdated)

Other Thoughts: Arrived quickly and well-packed. "Before you Begin" sheet suggests there are additional detailed instructions - there aren't, but seriously just plug the thing in and go (after carefully transcribing the Win7 product key), and you'll be fine.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Cosmetics

Pros: Works

Cons: We bought 3 of these units. The side panels have been spray painted. You can still smell the paint. The black plastic front and top parts have paint overspray that had to be compounded out. These were C grade units dressed up to look like B or A. What a disappointment.

Other Thoughts: One of the units had a bad onboard Ethernet port. Not worth the price paid. Newegg needs to dump this supplier. The only good thing is that with a lot of work we were able to resell these units.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It comes with a keyboard and mouse
