Dell Optiplex 755 Desktop Tower PC with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.93Ghz, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD, DVDRW, Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Economical, practical, good for a utility machine to do basics

Cons: Poor or non-existent QC on outgoing machines. The first machine would not post. The replacing machine had a defective DVD burner (drawer opening mechanism failed.

Other Thoughts: I build computers for my biz and as a hobby. I've built many over the years. This deal was almost too good. The entire system for a price just a little higher than the cost of the operating system. But I was disappointed in the refurbishes QC..... And I'm only guessing they have that. If they don't, they need to implement something. The first machine I received did not even post. The second (replacing) machine posted, but the DVD burner drawer failed to open... Sounded like the mechanism was damaged. Rather than going though the process of sending a 2nd box back, I took a spare DVD burner out of my own spare parts and replaced the defective burner. If seems fine now. No complaints yet.

Pioneer VSX-523-K 5.1 Channel 3D/4k Ultra Pass through AV Receiver

4 out of 5 eggs Refurb Pioneer VSX-523-K Receiver 09/21/2014

This review is from: Pioneer VSX-523-K 5.1 Channel 3D/4k Ultra Pass through AV Receiver

Pros: Seems to be a functional replacement for the Pioneer Receiver of slightly inferior performance stds suddenly died.
Every attribute seems true

Cons: Since the 1st Pioneer went down after abt 2-1/2 years of sporatic use, my long term opinion of this product is guarded. But for price and performance while it functions, it cannot be beat.

Other Thoughts: For the price and performance I took the gamble a second time. Not sure I'd repeat if this one fails in next several years.

Silicon Power Rugged Armor A15 1TB USB 3.0 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks Rugged, Feels Rugged

Cons: Issue with USB port. Absolutely NO Technical or Customer support despite fancy and impressive website

Other Thoughts: Bought this new through another source. Lasted abt 3 months. Never really used it...just backed up some important data. The internal connection that supports USB port came loose after only a few uses. Despite warranty, I cannot get anyone from SP to respond to any request for support I have so far made - both by telephone and by email. It may be durable with its data retention, but w/o a working port what good is the device?
