Great product - and a bargain at this price.
Pros: I have never expected to find myself writing a review about a vacuum cleaner but Dyson has simply been perfect. I don't know how they do it but it does remove move dust and dirt then our previous vacuums. It is also designed with a great attention to detail (which impresses by itself).
Cons: It is a piece of fine machinery so I won't be surprised to find myself shopping for spare parts to replace broken ones when it is out of warranty. But I still believe it is worth it.
Overall Review: A great product at a great price.
Refurbished Dell still OK
Pros: Well built, few scratches but they are barely visible on the black case. I guess I could call it Grade A. Optiplex 960 used to be top of the line, quiet, 10 USB and the full complement of other ports, including DMI and eSATA.
Cons: It is a PC initially sold eight years ago, in 2009 which means its original configuration was 2Gb RAM, 160 Gb HDD, and, sadly, Windows XP. When you install Windows 10 on a PC designed for Windows XP, you, at the very least, get issues with drivers. In this case with Intel video drivers - Intel discontinued support before Windows 10 was released so there are no adequate drivers. It works but video quality leaves much to be desired. I guess the only solution is a (cheap) stand-alone VGA card.
