Broken Hardware and errors on first boot!

 

If I didn't know how to fix PC's, this would have been a return for sure. With that said , I did contact customer support via chat. This was probably the worst customer service experience I have ever had. The agent could not answer basic questions...

Able to upgrade Nice processor Runs very quiet Dual display

Error message on first boot "drive not found" Turns out one of the two optical drives was broken had to unplug from motherboard. Broken headphone jack piece jammed into from audio port, had to take apart PC to remove, took an hour Rear audio jack...

Good with minor issues

 

The system arrived with Win7 installed and virtually no bloat ware. The faulty floppy wouldn't be an issue for most, but this Puter is used to retrieve "patterns" for a Husvarna sewing machine. Older technology involved. Fortunately, most of us have...

Came as described. Worked with no problems straight out of the box. Case is really solid and heavy.

Floppy drive was damaged. Door was broken and wedged disallowing insertion of disk. Floppy drives are a dime a dozen though.

Precision T3400 and WIN10

 

Refurbished computer was in very good shape, worked great as shipped - the Newegg eBlast special price was fantastic for a quad core Core 2 CPU. I also added a PCI-e USB 3.0 card and it worked well. For a very reasonable investment in refurbished and...

Refurb'ed T3400 arrive quickly, pre-loaded with Win 7 Pro. Software loaded and verified without any problem. Made a duplicate of the hard drive, and tried to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. Pre-install program for Win10 did not like the original Dell video...

not really a con, but the older video card was not supported by Win10 - that is definitely NOT the problem of the seller - the installed video worked just fine with Win 7 Pro as sold and shipped. Upgrading to Windows 10 was my idea and the extra cost...

Good

 

Overall, very happy with the performance of this rig. It has plenty of room for expansion and came with a 525 watt power supply so there is some wiggle-room.

Price would be hard to beat. Had Parallel Printer Port and 3.5" floppy drive that end-user needed. It did not come with a ton of bloat-ware installed. Plenty of USB ports. Can't think of anything we needed that this Puter needed.

Only one complaint. The port for video was a DMS-59. An adapter came with it to go from DMS to DVI. The monitor I had for this Puter rig needed either D-Sub-15 or HDMI. This is not really a CON as long as adapters are easily obtained, but the DMS to...
