4 out of 5 eggsRefurbished HP PC

Pros: Low cost
Small size
Adequate Media Center PC

Cons: 32 bit operating system
Noisy hard drive
Ugly next to my TV

Other Thoughts: Front panel removes easily so I removed it and taped over the controls. Then painted the grill black. - It now looks a lot nicer. The hard drive is very noisy for a media center PC. I thought upgrading the memory would cause less disk activity - It didn't. I also updated the video card thinking it would free up some shared video memory. That can only go so far with a 32 bit operating system (4 GB limit). I put in a quieter hard drive and that helps with the noise.

Out of the Box Windows Experience Index:- Before modifications
Processor 5.7
Memory 5.5
Graphics 3.8
Gaming 3.3
Hard Disk 5.3

Overall it works well as a media center PC

3 out of 5 eggsDecent machine, cheap refurb

Pros: It's a good basic machine with some room to grow. Don't look for gaming performance, but if you need a basic net machine with some ability to run productivity stuff or the like, it'll get the job done.

Cons: This is refurbished by a third party, not HP. It comes with the cheapest generic USB keyboard and mouse I've ever seen. The Windows license is only on a sticker on the computer, and there's no recovery CD provided. This doesn't bother me, since I'm scrubbing Windows off for good anyway (this box is becoming a pfSense firewall), but keep it in mind.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT buy a PCI-Express Ethernet card for a second Ethernet port for this system. It will hang on boot. Apparently, that's a known problem. PCI Ethernet cards are reported to work fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Buy

Pros: Good bargain, not a gaming machine, but does what I want it to do. Fast processor, memory at 2 gigs is sufficient. Win 7 included, no bloatware. If you like to browse the web, word processing, spreadsheets and occasional gaming (not intensive games), this is a good quality product. Took the case cover off, and the referb was done dust in the case, looked as if new. Recommend.
Shipping fast, packed very well, included Win 7 for referbs disk....great if you need to do a fresh reinstall at some point.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Was looking to replace the huge tower unit that i had, and actually looking for the horizontal type unit , perfect for my setup and space requirements
