HardwareCentral - Dell OptiPlex 745 Review.

 

All four flavors come with Intel's GMA 3000 integrated graphics, but all save the smallest can be upgraded to discrete PCI Express x16 graphics in the form of a 128MB ATI Radeon X1300 or 256MB Radeon X1300 Pro card. Our test desktop had one low-profile...

A fold-down handle helps you pull up the riser assembly to insert or remove expansion cards. Two of the four DIMM memory slots are fairly reachable, but the other two hide under the drive bays: The internal bay at the bottom of the stack holds the 80GB...

A good take on the vPro concept but, ultimately, too expensive for most offices

Several Problems

 

I have purchased many refurbished products from NewEgg and have been completely satisfied with them. These were the first that were refurbished by AST. I also purchased 2 HP Compaq Elite 8000 refurbished (by AST) computers for the same project. With...

Price was good.

Purchased 2 of these refurbished Dell Optiplex 745's in December for a project. One arrived with no video and was returned for replacement. Keyboard on one was DOA and the second failed soon thereafter. The video on the second failed after about a...

a little problem

 

the box arrived as scheduled but the shipping label was pasted OVER the data on the box that is used to receive the rebate. It sure looks like a scam but I will follow up with New Egg and Joy Systems to see what can be done

none yet - I have not plugged it in

rebate question - unhappy with my choices

Excellent buy Excellent seller

 

The real winners on this is seller refurbishing outlet on this unit and Newegg

Boxed nicely to withstand hits and falls,this is noteworthy as many delivery of electronics are a disaster to happen. Plugged and booted up perfectly,took a while to update the 200 plus Win updates,no problems,also very very nice no junk or unwanted...

simple PC

 

I would recommend this to others for a basic PC. Does the job and has 1T of storage. It's fast enough for what we do.

Easy setup instructions. We wanted a PC that was cheap, let us watch youtube videos and facebook, let us store and listen to music, store pictures, and do the basic PC functions. It's a great basic PC.

The windows games do not work. Solitaire, Spider Solitaire, Minesweeper. There were some tips on the Microsoft website on how to get the games to work and it suggested to watch a video to show how to fix the problem. The video said that I needed to...

It is solid

 

Needed a PC for friend who just did web browsing, pdfs, ms office stuff. This was great for the price. People buy new PCs from retail stores for $400+ to really do the same thing and the performance difference is not noticeable. Mouse and Keyboard...

Price as advertised came with 320gb HD
