HP DX2400 [Microsoft Authorized Recertified] Desktop Tower with Intel Pentium Dual Core E2220 2.40 Ghz, 2GB RAM, 80GB HDD, DVDROM, Windows 7 Home 32 Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive desktop machine that is great for internet browsing, email, etc. Also, it is Windows 7 and NOT Windows 8.

Cons: Arrived with a bad harddrive that contained several bad sectors.

Other Thoughts: Machine arrived and appeared to be OK, however after installing the OS it began freezing during boot up with an error about a corrupt registry. I reinstalled the OS and the error occurred again. So at this point I scanned the harddrive and sure enough several bad sectors were found. I replaced the harddrive with an extra 1 I had on hand, reinstalled the OS and it has work perfectly since. Would I but another one of these machines? Probably (if the price was relatively low), because at the price I paid it is still a good deal and I am able to resolve hardware issues. But unless you are able to do a harddrive replacement (if needed), I would avoid buying a refurbished machine. Last thought...a simple scan of the harddrive prior to shipping it out to customers would have caught the bad sectors issue. Pretty lame to send out machines with bad harddrives when they can so easily be hence the 2 egg rating.

ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: USB 3.0 and 16GB. They were dirt cheap when they were on sale in early December!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 when they were on sale in early December. Gave one to my wife and I kept the other. Though it is plastic, it does not feel like it will break or crack very easily.

WD Red 2TB NAS Desktop Hard Disk Drive - Intellipower SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD20EFRX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet and so far i have had 0 issues. 3 year warranty.

Cons: More expensive because it is a red series drive (NAS).

Other Thoughts: I bought three of these to stick in a HP ProLiant G7 N54L that I set up as a FreeNAS box in a RAID 5 configuration.
