Pros: quad processor. clean as new. low power processor - AMD 65 watts vs. 100 watts for my a8-5600k. will support 32G of memory if needed. Has built in wifi. very quiet, runs cool. It's a good value for the money
Cons: only 4g of ddr3 memory. They had to have removed 4g because these were originally sold by HP with 8G I believe. no OS included, that really does eliminate people that don't enjoy, or have the know-how to building up a PC.
Other Thoughts: This was originally an HP. They modified the bios so it won't load an OS from HP recovery, and they removed all traces of HP logo. Here is an HP support page that will allow for all mother board specs, etc. at least.
Also, I believe you can download drivers if needed - I didn't need to do downloads. Over-all this was an easy machine to build up to windows 10.
I did go ahead and replace the 1TB hard drive with a SSD 240G. that made the machine scream!!! I took out the 1TB drive. The 2.5" SSD did mount on the 3.5" drive housing.
Bottom line,I would recommend this debranded PC to anyone that is interested in saving a few bucks, and has a spare copy of window7, 8, or 10 laying around. I'm not a gamer, so I can't say what level of games this machine is capable of supporting by adding a video card?
Pros: really cheap price on a decent drive (on sale, with a code, $55) I'm using it in a extra external enclosure I had. great price from Newegg that I couldn't pass up. Did I mention great price :)
Cons: this hybrid shipping company/usps shipping is awful. I almost wish they didn't let me track it. The item got to St. Louis on a Sat, and it took FOUR more days to get delivered. yuk.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: freezes after 1 hour. occasionally bsod as well. This seems to be a common theme from the other reviews. I believe the drive has weak firmware because is seems to work with some machines, and not others. maybe it's a drvier issue?
Other Thoughts: not worth the hassel.READ FULL REVIEW
