Good for anything from Linux to Windows 10


So far it seems to be running well.

Price, warranty, case, processor

Seemed to have hard drive issues. Haven't yet run a test on it since it was only 250gb I swapped it and performed a clean install of Windows 10.

Clean Appearance - Poor Config


We will never buy another refurb done by this refurbisher. Other Newegg refurbishers have done much better at or near the same price.

It was very clean inside and out. Limited crapware

Wrong Video Drivers - the BSOD others report is likely related to this. BIOS outdated Old versions of installed software

Blue Screen Issue on Multiple machines and no customer support


Look nice and in good physical condition

I have 6 of these machines. So far, the 3 we have opened all have the same reoccurring blue screen issue. I called Newegg and they say they do not provide customer support or sales support! We can return them for a replacement, but whatever is wrong is...

Looks New; however, the inside is a different story


I can't wait to setup another one for a few hours of my time (sarcasm)

-Outside looked brand new with no markings and decent components for price

-continued to shutdown -would not wake up from sleep -multiple blue screens with different internal error messages, not worth fixing after having it for 1 day. - Me-0 vs Refurbished-1

I love it - updated rating due to price


Fortunately for me, unlike the first reviewer, my experience with this box has been great. Windows 7 Pro came up as expected and the product key on the case worked for me,. It's very quick, a lot quicker than I expected, and quiet. I don't have a...

Very small, performs well, no problems. I purchased this machine for $219.99 on 10/15/2015, a pretty good price. 5 stars.

DVD is read only, no built in WiFi. The price on 1/25/2016 is $479.95 - not so good and I wouldn't buy it at that price. 2 stars due to price increase

It works great for my needs using microsoft programs. Writing contracts etc. I do download photos but other than advertising I do very little graphic work. Not sure how it is for gaming and other uses for my business it is great.

No problems or cons on this one works for what I need.

This may not be for everyone


Bought 6 of these and added 4GB and a cheap video card to get some additional outputs for multiple monitors. While everything did work and was as described, I couldn't help but feel like I dodged a bullet on these. The first one out of the box was the...

Good price point for these specs with a Windows 7 License Everything was as described** All of the Windows 7 Pro Keys worked even though they had to be manually entered and activated.

1.The Outside of the towers definitely show some use, In some places there were fairly large areas that had paint missing and it looks as though it was colored in with a sharpie, Nothing Major, no dents but a little bit of black paint would go along...
