Dell Precision T5500

 

Dell Precision T5500 workstations are specifically designed for graphics-intensive professionals who need lots of processing power. Nonetheless, they're small in size and the prices begin at very reasonable levels. Typical of high-end computers, adding...

If you need monster storage, the Dell Precision T5500 has is just the ticket

The basic hard drive that’s included in the base package is not overly impressive at 160GB

Display Issues Galore

 

It turns on, but can't say more until I can get it to work with the monitor.

As others have noted if your look for a simple plug and play move on. As I have been trying to get a serial port monitor to work on this with no luck. I bought the dvi to vga adapter, but as Hugh noted you need to have the video card go directly to the...

A great PC

 

This is very particular when it comes to displays. I tried to go from display port to DVI adapter to VGA adapter, but that didn't work. The video card must connect to the monitor via DVI cable. That would have been nice to know. Pay a little more for...

A complete workstation with a quad-core Xeon CPU. Included a legal Windows 7 COA, keyboard, mouse, even includes two DisplayPort-DVI "DONGLE, DP2DVI" adapters. Includes the DELL standard Nvidia Quadro dual display port video adapter. This is a good...

DELL specifies ECC RAM which is pricey. Pay a little more for one of these with 8GB of RAM ; Newegg has 16GB (4x4gb) for $143.00

Meh

 

Fortunately I bought this machine as a learning experiment - turned out to be a bit more of a learning experience than expected, so I appreciate that. If you're looking for something to plug in and use with ease, keep looking!

Cheap, worked - for the most part, about what I expected for $175

You get what you pay for - network port didn't work; listed as having a DVI port - was delivered with a video card with DisplayPort and an adapter to DVI. Using a TV as a monitor, going from DisplayPort to DVI to HDMI I could not get anything. Had to...

DELL T5500

 

This machine is a great value for the price I paid. It's a little old, but with a 3 year warranty the risk is minimal.

Great parallel processing power. The SAS drives are on a PCIe raid controller. There are 6 memory slots (1GB stick in each one) and the RAM that came with my unit is ECC

The 15k RPM HDD is a little loud. The video card is underpowered compared to the rest of the machine. I consider these very minor issues

Amazing Deal

 

Get over the refurb, it has a 3 year warranty and it is a tower/desktop type system so you can always buy parts after the 3 years. It does come with a keyboard and mouse but with AST brand on them which isn't a big deal either. No software so if you...

Recommended this deal to several small business owners I support and one owner took me up on it. This is a great deal with a nice bonus, the 147 GB IBM SAS drive was actually a pair of 147 GB Drive with a support for up to 4 drives. Essentially setup...

Very heavy which isn't really a con but you really need to be aware this thing ways more than 4 small desktop put together. Only negative but didn't take a star away due to the free bonus SAS for mirroring was that the main SAS drive cable had come...
