Summering: - The free keyboard functions. - It's 2nd Gen Desktop i5 seems to get things done roughly twice as fast as my 4th Gen Mobile i5 Mac Mini - If you need an extra workhorse and don't have much funding, this is the way to go!
Fördelar: - Good power for the price! - Fresh hard drive! - Windows 7 Pro offered an optional free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro within 24 hours of initial setup. - Windows 10 Pro is running well.
Nackdelar: - The free mouse is not detected by Windows 7 Pro
Summering: Newegg gave a credit for wrong CPU. Expect additional costs to properly setup.
Fördelar: Good Price for a 2nd generation Core i5.
Nackdelar: Once again it had a Core i5 3.1Ghz CPU not the 3.3Ghz CPU listed. Came with 4x 1gb DDR3 modules. Which I immediatly pulled and replaced with a 4gb module. More 4gb chips to follow. NO PCIe power connectors, only SATA. Had to order an adapter. Computer setup with wrong drivers. Had to download cor...
You can't actually use those x16 slots due to no PCIe auxiliary power connectors

Summering: With the proprietary power supply and lack of PCI express auxiliary power connectors, this system is defective by design. That being said, it's a nice machine at a great price. Be careful if you decide to throw an add-on video card at this thing.
Fördelar: Great processor, plenty of ram. Great price. Tower or desktop orientation.
Nackdelar: There are no PCIe auxiliary power connectors. Even worse, the oddly-shaped proprietary HP power supply with proprietary HP power supply connectors on the motherboard mean you can't even buy a suitable replacement.
Summering: Great computer but requires some computer experience to get it ready for use. Not a plug-in and go purchase for any basic consumer.
Fördelar: i7 is fast. Very quiet on the desk. USB's are conveniently placed. Slim case works well on the desk. Shipped and delivered within 3 days. Needed minimal updates so it must have a recent image installed. Nice keyboard and mouse provided.
Nackdelar: It came with a corrupt video driver. Thanks to a knowledgeable friend he downloaded the Intel Drive Update Utility and solved the problem with an updated driver. Needed Flash and Shockwave download in order to get audio on internet videos.
Summering: Oh look! it's out of stock! So now you CAN'T buy this computer. LUCKY YOU!
Fördelar: RMA procedure was smooth as always, wouldn't take a risk like this most anywhere but Newegg.
Nackdelar: Just because you CAN buy a decent-sounding computer for $250, doesn't mean that you SHOULD. Worked fine for maybe a half hour, then started in with ctds and bsod's every 5-10 minutes. I can see how this could slip past a hurried refurbishment process, but still. Bummer. Ah well, only a waste of t...
