1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY! (FAULTY PARTS)

Pros: None

Cons: For my business, I needed 3 computers that can run a basic dos program. I ordered three of these and 2 out of the 3 broke down on me in a couple of days. #1 computer likes to automatically turn off all my input devices and the #2 doesn't even POST anymore. After some inspection, it appears either the MB or RAM(unlikely) is no good. The worst part is that I can't even return the PCs! For a return, I need to pay for the return shipping but the pc weight a ton and cost almost the same price as buying it.

Other Thoughts: Totally Useless. It's like playing Russian roulette with a bunch of old computers. Don't waste your time! Put a little bit more money and buy something that wont fail!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, no major problems besides setup

Pros: Arrived quickly, clean interior, no loose connections, all ports tested appear to be functional.

Cons: Optical drive is a CD/DVD Read-Only Media model. USB plugs in front were difficult to get into. Runs a bit hot, as well. Could use some better ventilation and fans. Minor annoyance; had to go into BIOS before the CD/DVD drive would work. Took Me over a day swapping drives and cables before I figured it out.

Other Thoughts: IBM KCKH6TD 32 bits
Intel P4 3.2GHz 32 bits 100MHz clk
DIMM DDR Synchronous 64 bits
1GB PC 3200 DDR module installed
Operating at 3.20GHz, 400MHz Memory Speed

System comes with read-only optical drive.

BIOS Setup -you appear to have less than 1 second
to hit Enter, then F1 to enter the setup utility.

IDE Drives Setup:
Parallel ATA: Primary
Serial ATA: Enabled
Native Mode: Automatic
(Either option, Automatic or Serial ATA, can be chosen,
since both options will only allow Native Mode Operation
on the Serial channel.)

Startup Sequence: First, set all options to Disabled. Note
that the "Removeable" option appears to mean the internal
floppy drive only, not a USB drive. Then you can set up
like the following:
First Startup Device: CD/DVD
Second Startup Device: Hard Disk 0
Continue for up to four devices.

Automatic Startup Sequence: Disabled. Only needed for
different Sequence when using Automatic Power On feature.

Removeable Devices -the only option is the internal floppy
if you have not disabled it.

Unit appears to run pretty warm, so I plan on removing MB and installing on a more roomy and better ventilated case. I will have to do some desoldering to relocate the front jacks and will lose the PCI expandability unless I find a flexible adapter for the expansion bus, but I did not intend to add any extra cards anyway.

I run Linux so I don't really care about the Win7 option.

4 out of 5 eggs1 bad out of 4 ..

Pros: Nice little machine for the price of a Windows 7 key..

Cons: 1 out of 4 had bad caps on the MB.
Currently waiting on a replacement.
another appears to have had the caps replaced already.
(the leads were way too long)

No recovery CD.

Other Thoughts: Linda: The drive IS a 40GB but is partitioned into 3 parts..
Your recovery partition is on one of them.

3 out of 5 eggsHo Hum

Pros: Cheap and has Win 7 32 bit CoA

Cons: P4 is slow, as old as it is caps have probably degraded along with some of the chips. Had to reinstall Windows after about 3 days due to drive corruption. Hard drive DIED after about a week.

Other Thoughts: Outside of case was clean inside covered in soot?
This thing weighs A TON. and really has no room for expansion had to remove RD-ROM to install second Hard drive

2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for.

Pros: For a cheap PC it has a descent processor.

Cons: It came with only 40GB of hard drive. I think I used it all up in two days. I also randomly turn off then it starts again for no reason. I thought I would be able to make additions to it for better performance but the little it has is the max. I'm definitely going to contact and see what they can do for me.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware incorrect HD 25 GB not 40 GB

Pros: It works good and is fast.

Cons: ONLY has a 25 GB hard drive I spent 6 hours updating this to find out it had tiny hard drive. They said I had to send the whole thing back I told them I can't lift it and have to pay for it to be moved I had already paid ($10) to have it moved into the house. I ask them to send a 40 Gb HD and I would copy my stuff on it so I would not lose all the work I had done then I would send the little one back. I also explained it would cost me at least $15.00 to have some one take it to town and mail it for me plus I would have to pay to have it brought into the house again.. Even if I send it back who know what I would get the next time. It is also very hard to close the cover.

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind sending it back to get the correct hd it would be ok.
First time I have been very unhappy with newegg but I ordered it from neweggflash maybe they are not as good as newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsIt does OK

Pros: Affordable, very clean and well refurbished. No overheating issues. Win 7 Home key is a plus.

Cons: 2gb max supported memory really puts a hindrance on Win 7. Even when tweaked to the lowest settings possible, it still has a hard time keeping up with my work.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to put in my home office where I take inbound calls doing tech support. It's OK for something temporary until some checks come in.

4 out of 5 eggsIBM S50 refurb

Pros: Small size(fits on my desk top), inexpensive, good speed,
fans don't vibrate (that kills hard drives),Windows 7certificate,
good response to my support question.Easy to open the case.
It started up out of the box(no WEB) but overheated.I expected
that when I saw the size of the case. I emailed support for a fan, got it today---nice response!!!!

Cons: 1)Before the 1st start up, I lifted the cover 2 in. , it ran fine for
45 min then locked up. I could feel the interface heat sink
very warm. A 120mm fan on wood sticks over the MB fixed
that. I tried again for about an hour---OK. 2)DVD is DVDromCD
R/W(not DVDr/w)40 pin ATA. 3) W7 disc burner doesn't like the on board video. 4) PCI slots are standard PCI, not PCI-X.

Other Thoughts: I got this on sale for $80 and I am satisfied. Great for email.
The Cons don't bother me.
I did not run this on the WEB because I want to use the W7
certificate on a new computer that I am building. The small
case is what I want on my desktop. I will take the cover off,
running the extra fan that CNB sent me, install Win2000
(maybe a bigger HD),and use it for my email.
I bought Win7 Home for $95 ,so now I have a 2nd certificate
for $80 and a free email computer. The HD is SATA (it has 2
SATA sockets), the DVD ROM is the 40 pin ribbon cable(it has 2 ultra ATA 40 pin sockets and I have a new DVD R/W for this). I am weary off people complaining about these
kind of deals-- which should only be bought by computer
hobbyist to tinker with as needed. So to all those that
complain, I say "what did you expect for $80",and if you are
to inept to make this into a good deal then you should not
give yourself any "tech rating" and furthermore I ask "Write
a review" at NEWEGG to reduce your tech rating to zero---
retroactive to the beginning of the IBM-XT.

4 out of 5 eggsBLAST FROM THE PAST

Pros: This is a sturdy little system. We've used this in the training lab for years and they take all the abuse you can imagine. The P4, though antiquated, is still a horse as long as you have a Prescott or later revision and a 32bit OS.

Cons: 40 GB hard drive, but hey! It's a refurb!
