Good enough but...


A little slop inside the box on packaging. I would not have let it go across the country like this.

A lot of bang for the buck for most users. Clean unit

A missing video card driver (Microsoft installed one of course but I didn't catch it) cost me a trip back to the customers house. I had to take 2 stars off for this...sorry. You can not ship a machine out with a microsoft graphics driver IMO. I would...

Great Computers


Great cost. They ran right out of the box. They arrived within the time frame set and I had a tracking number within 24 hours of my order. Great component package for the price. We ordered 8 for general office work and everyone loves their...

Not one that I can find

DELL 760 Tower


Ram is cheap. Installed 4GB in four 1GB sticks. Made the PC very fast!

Worked as advertised. No surprises! Clean inside and out. Very quick shipping

Dual channel mother board with only 1 dim ram installed. Makes performance slower. Not a deal breaker just needed upgrade


Consumer review by:

Keeps crashing


Cheap, relatively quick

Within 3 months, one of the two units ordered began crashing periodically. It now happens 3 times a day

Consumer review by:

Great price


Fired right up. Everything works great. Needed massive software updates, but that's not a con, that's Microsoft

None so far

Solid PC


Solid pc!

Very quiet compared to my previous PC. Is has eSATA!! Performance with an E7300 is very good for what I use it for and at a later date can be upgraded to a Q9650, especially as the prices keep coming down

None yet that I can think of

Optiplex 760


Best computer I have ever had. Very small and queit. It also has lots of very useful features.

This is the best computer I have ever had. As a teacher I use computers alot at school and the school that I work in uses Dell Optiplex Computers. I decided to buy one for home. It is very small and queit and can fit into almost any work/home...

Every now and then when I swich it on it takes quite a long time load up

Consumer review by:

Please reconsider your choice - buy new in store!


I thought why not go refurb, its for email and surfing....wrong choice. System arrived ok but had two big issues (CDROM broken, would not open and would not function, meaning no loading my virus software or microsoft office that I own) - and everytime...

Cheap, nice screen

really beat up case, PC did not work - had to fix at extra cost
