Dell OptiPlex 760 small form factor PC

 

Dell's OptiPlex 760 is a small form factor desktop PC aimed at business users. It has limited expansion options but won't take up too much desk space....

eSATA, DisplayPort, quad-core CPU options

Tricky to replace some components

Dell's OptiPlex 760 desktop PC provides plenty of power but lacks the ease of maintenance that other small form factor PCs offer. Better graphics options would improve its performance.

The Dell OptiPlex 760 is a desktop PC that has plenty of power but a poorly organised chassis.

Consumer review by:

DELL OPTIPLEX 760 refurb.

 

Packing was really good!

Connected all the cables and turned it ON. Nothing more to it! Really pleased with it! You usually have to install drivers, etc but not this one! 5 out of 5, outstanding

None that I can see

Consumer review by:

Less than satisfactory

 

Chosen for small form factor and basic specs for some general applications. Didn't need a workhorse

Continuously shut down. Diagnostics determined a bad memory stick. Since this shipped with 2 GB of RAM, I removed the bad stick and it's been running fine. Paid for 2GB running on 1 for now. Will contact support and update status if applicable

Consumer review by:

Computers are okay. Some needed BIOS updates.

 

These systems have great value for any person or business that wants to upgrade to a Windows 7 computer without breaking the bank.

The computers appear to be clean with only some minor defects due to wear and tear. Good price for a refurbished computer that includes Windows 7 Professional. Some of the computers I received had slightly better cpus and CDRW/DVD combo drives

At least two of the computers I received did not display anything until it booted into Windows. I was able to correct this by upgrading the BIOS from A02 to A16. None of the computers came with a video cable or a DVI to VGA adapter

ATI Radeon 7500 64mb PCI card

 

Just to be clear im a 15 year technician and tried everything that a normal person would. It turns on but doesn't display. Thanks for the enormous waste of my time. I love the whole RMA process and repackaging and driving large boxes to the UPS store

Its a cheap windows 7 that with said hardware would perform great as an internet grabber

DOA. No video right out of the box. Had to RMA this and now Im going to have to RMA the RMA for the EXACT SAME REASON

Consumer review by:

Replacement computer just as bad

 

Don't order these unless you love doing RMA's

none at this point

This is the replacement for the first no display piece of junk they sent me. It doesn't display either

Consumer review by:

DOA

 

Contacted newegg for an RMA to get an exchange. I was promised two day return shipping. Six days after it was received by newegg they changed the RMA to refund because the item was sold out. When I bought another item to replace it they would only give...

Good specs for the price

Windows would start but never finish loading

Consumer review by:

great little workstation

 

I've bought about 10 of these to use as servers for Aloha and every one of them has come to me in great condition with just minor cosmetic damage that you would expect in a refurbished PC. All have come very well packed as to not incur damage in shipping.

Specs are perfect for our application (Aloha Point of Sale)

None
