Pros: I buy many PC refurbs for friends and others I know looking for budget reliable PC's. I usually add RAM or increase HD size before I deliver. I was pleasantly surprised with this unit. All ports worked fine; everything worked as expected.
Cons: None really. It did not come with keyboard or mouse as most due, but most of those cheap add-ons that come with other refurbs are usually not worth keeping anyway. Came with DVD ROM. This can easily be replaced with conventional burner if needed; both of these negatives were known in advance of purchase.
Other Thoughts: Very Good buy... I purchased my unit on sale, but even at the everyday discounted price, the unit is a good buy and will not disappoint.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great Value for the Price, Structure, Sound Mechanics. Somehow the machine supports Win7 Pro with original hardware and firmware.
Cons: Old architecture. Bare minimum hardware to support Win7 Pro...but it does....
Other Thoughts: Bought this for a friend. It was a steal at this price, if not just for operating system alone. Had no issues with OS or anything close to issue reported by a colleague in an earlier review. Found I had to upgrade the DD2 memory by 2 GB to bring processing speeds to an acceptable level (an additional $10) and swapped out the HD for a 250 GB had in inventory. Overall quite a value...I was pleased with net result. Anyone looking for a computer on a budget... this is a great deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks like it has potential
Cons: Was delivered in many,many,many pieces. Front cover snapped off, vented areas in front smashed in. Had to shake the unit for 5 minutes to dislodge all the screws and broken pieces. Side panel smashed and bent where it joins the back panel one of special attaching screws bent at 45 deg angle. Just a mess....
Other Thoughts: Very, very disappointed. there was styrofoam, but obviously to have this much damage, this unit must have literally fell of the truck and bounced down the highway before it arrived.READ FULL REVIEW
