This review is from: DELL OptiPlex 960 Desktop PC Core 2 Duo 2.66GHz 4GB 1.5TB HDD Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit
Pros: I bought two of these refurbished 960s. I ran a diagnostic on the memory, hard drive, PSU and mobo. Both passed all tests.
Both arrived on time without delay.
These have a 1 year warranty.
The shipping boxes were not beat up.
For typical office use there's no need to upgrade the RAM
It's a top-end OptiPlex.
Cons: The front bezels were cracked on both 960's and both showed scuff marks.
Having seen these, I believe the price is $25 too high.
I don't really need 1.5TB in a PC that is connected to server.
Other Thoughts: These minitowers usually sit on the floor and occasionally get kicked and bumped by the user's feet. I don't know if a desktop or small form factor PC, rather than the minitower, would fare any better.
I removed an egg for the cracked bezels and wear and another egg for the price.
Pros: Usually have very good results with GSkill
Cons: One of the two sticks was dead
Other Thoughts: I returned them and received a new set. I wouldn't call it quick, but good enough. Customer service is pretty good.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I received the replacement unit quickly and it reads perfect voltage across the board, albeit just slightly under as I previously mentioned. The replacement came in an unmarked box, well wrapped, but had no refurbished sticker and appears to be new.
Cons: This has great specs but the wire gauge is just a hair too thin, but still workable. -half egg
Also the replacement unit I received has a shorter ATX connector which will not reach the HP Micro Server motherboard without an extension. It's about 1.5" too short. - half egg
Also, this unit has only 3 molex connectors, the HP requires 4, but I have an extra y-splitter laying around and I'm not installing all four drives, so no big deal.
It reads perfect voltage across the board, albeit just slightly under as I previously mentioned. -half egg
Other Thoughts: I don't like having to buy an ATX extension, but maybe it's just this one. Maybe it is a refurb? It sure looks like new.
As usual, dealing with Newegg is easy.
