Like new refurb


If it lasts for a few years, it will be well worth the purchase price.

No visible wear and tear. Everything included. Matched the item description. The PC was sent in secure packaging that was designed for shipping a tower PC ; So far, no issues. Am in the process of upgrading to Windows 8.1. Takes a really long time to...

Stickers on the front panel glued on too well. Haven't removed them entirely yet. How hard is it to put on a sticker that peels off easily without leaving a sticky residue ; Don't like the keyboard. Cannot easily read the characters on the keys....

Great machine for the price


Would buy this again in a heartbeat. Perfect computer for the person still stuck with an old 32 bit vista that would bog down and wants to move up to Windows 8.1 or 10 without spending a fortune. It does come with Win 8 which is strange if you have...

I received in 1 day (and that was free shipping), everything worked, decent processor, hard drive and memory. It would take me twice the amount I spent to build. The machine was in new condition still had free upgrade to Win 8.1 sticker. The only sign...

In the pictures it shows you also get a driver disk, manual, keyboard, mouse and power cord. I received only a power chord and a sheet of paper telling me how to do a system recovery. This is the only reason I didn't give it 5 eggs. The case was...

When it works it appears to run quietly

After about one month of ownership (how convenient for a 30 day warranty), the monitor would just go to sleep at random, without warning. It didn't matter if the computer was in use or if it was idle. Tests performed included changing all cables (DVI,...

Bought the system for my son to replace an old one he had. He was very excited to get it but now it is causing these problems. Bought a ready-built because I didn't want the hassle of making a frankenstein out of parts. With these continuing problems...

The systems came fast and, at first appearances, seems to perform as expected

The system cuts out at random times, basically screen going to black. Sometimes the sound continues (loops). Sounds like an overheating problem. Considering the cost of the system, I am very disappointed. It appears to happen 10-20 minutes after my son...

Still a great PC.. mostly no issues

I have this exact PC hooked up to a 1080p smart TV, with HDMI cable to the Radeon R7 ; Randomly, at times the PC will go inactive (mostly during gameplay, but sometimes just at random.) You will have to force restart the computer, after that it is...

Great PC - so far


Plug and Play ; Even though it was refurbished, my pc atleast is undamaged.. runs great, looks great, very quiet ; I have yet to find an issue with this computer ; Runs games like WoW great on medium graphics ; Very fast, multi-tasking computer ; No...

No monitor ; No keyboard/mouse ; Graphics probably could stand to be upgraded

The right and wrong


The system its self is nice to use. Quit and fast. Easy setup up. Well rounded desk top system. Easy to get to front panel USB and Sound ports. Like touch top link for cell phone

Will need to get uses to Windows 8 if its your first time using it. The keyboards gray letters are hard to see in low light. Asus utility package would give a 7 its ok. Memory card slots hard to see from sitting in chair

Smoking fast after bloat removed


The price is awesome for such a powerful computer, but whats with all the pre-installed viruses. I spent a couple of hours cleaning out the offending programs, now I cannot believe how fast it is. It is a great computer if you know what to keep and...

I have a laptop touch screen with Win 8, so I am getting used to it. I showed my wife how to use Win 8 and she picked it up no problem. This computer is smoking fast, AFTER the bloatware has been removed. It boots from shutdown in 5 - 10 seconds and...

It took several hours to install updates and then Win 8.1, not a big problem. But afterwords it was SUPER slow and loaded with bloatware and popups. All from the installed software and updates. Otherwise this would be a solid 5 eggs
