3 out of 5 eggsCoin flipping

Pros: Low cost (got it for 99$ on sale), easily upgradable. Sturdy construction. Silent and cool operation.

Cons: First one came with both keyboard and mouse from HP with very solid feel and a dvd player, only problem: it did not boot. Second one came in working order but with very lightweight and cheap feeling no-name keyboard and mouse but with a DVD-RW ...

Other Thoughts: I had no problem with Newegg in the replacement of the unit. The second one came in about a week later. You get two empty slots for ddr2 ram upgrade, I made an image copy of the hdd an transfer it on a cheap ssd. The system is working great up to now. In the end you can not tell in advance what you will really get in your box, including a working unit.

4 out of 5 eggsOK for the price

Pros: Affordable
Win 7 home premium 64 bit - price of the OS alone is almost as much as the whole computer
It's an HP business PC, designed for long life as a typical desktop
No junk software loaded

Cons: Not currently being delivered to match the photos - no recovery disc, DVS cable, or half-height addon video card. I was banking on using the video card with a DVS to DVI cable to connect to an HDTV. Newegg has been asked to update the photos.

Open PCI slot in the back missing a filler plate (where the video card should be)

Few scratches and some dust, but it's a refurb so that's to be expected.

Other Thoughts: Win 7 preload came right up, no missing drivers or exclamation marks in device manager. Haven't used Windows much on it beyond the first bootup as it's being used as a Linux MythTV DVR frontend.

There is a start menu option to make a USB recovery drive (USB only, no DVD or iso option), so add a USB flash drive to your order if you want recovery media. It says max 32GB USB drive, I used a 16GB successfully.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what I wanted it to do

Pros: i purchased this computer with the sole intention of using it for a Sophos UTM firewall. i needed a core 2 duo with atleast 2GB RAM. this met my needs and was the cheapest thing i could find. all the hardware components work, no bad fans, etc.

Cons: not sure what is with these other reviews saying they had issues out of the box. sounds like they had driver issues which i cant say i had since i nuked the OS as soon as i got it.

3 out of 5 eggsIf it were only as advertised

Pros: It works, for the price of the OS.

Cons: As mentioned in other recent reviews, these no longer come with discrete video cards nor OS discs.
The case is scratched up.
The inside was filthy. When cleaning with compressed air, there were dust balls flying all over.
Came with two 512MB and one 1GB DDR2 sticks. What dual channel?
HDD is loud, especially since this is a "desktop" meant to sit horizontally on the desk, not a tower.
The on-board graphics is VGA only.
Took all day to update the OS.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a "Windows XP" sign prominently displayed under the media drive.
Added:
-cheap low profile video card to get digital display
-2nd HDD, 80GB, really? I knew this going in, but. . .
-wifi adapter
-DVD-RW
Comes with a 64bit OS, given the minimal specs, 32bit would have been more appropriate.
All in all, you get a functional PC for cheap, but the original spec would be much more desirable.

1 out of 5 eggsThis one not so good

Pros: Great machine for the price of just Windows 7 alone. Can upgrade the memory and CPU if you want plus add/upgrade the hard drive (or switch or add an SSD if you can figure out where to put it with a HDD.

Cons: You get what you get I guess. The first couple I purchased came with video cards and Windows 7 install discs. This last one DID NOT come with a video card which I told my customer it did. It also DID NOT come with a Windows 7 install disc, which I told my customer it did. It also have lost lugs on the VGA connector. I am thank full that I decided to ship to me and not to my customer. I have lost money on this one by telling my customer how great of a machine it is for the price.... I was wrong.

Other Thoughts: Be aware when you buy this that you may just not be getting what you ordered, or at least what the picture shows. Buy it and then make promises. I lost money on this one by not doing that.

1 out of 5 eggsWhata load of malarky.

Pros: quickly shipped

Cons: No discs. Won't boot w/o crashing. Most drivers are not installed. Some of the other reviews look bogus. A 10k rpm HDD,,,,,I call Bogus on that. Mine has a 80GB junk. Really Newegg? I bet you don't even post this negative review. It's a piece of junk. I am disappointed in NE.
