HP Compaq dc7700P

 

The HP dc7700P makes for an ideal office workhorse and comes equipped with an Core 2 Duo, vPro, good expansion potential and a small form factor, just don't expect much hard drive space or multimedia performance.

RAM can be upgraded to a massive 4GB, generous allocation of 256MB for graphics use, Three years parts and labour warranty

Average multimedia performance, Limited to low profile PCI cards, 80GB of storage is a bit on the low side

Issues with RAM

 

Normally, I don't hesitate to purchase refurb products from newegg. However, this time around, this particular tower had 3 different RAM manufacturers. 1 module is made by Qimonda. 2 by Nanya. The forth and last by Samsung. And it was the slowest...

Great value

 

Relatively easy to upgrade. I put a 2 gb ddr2 memory stick I had laying around into the empty third slot. It was recognized and the machine now has 4 gb of ram. Cloned the hard drive onto a 1TB drive and it works. There are a lot of models around. The...

Great value when it was $100 on some sort of sale ; I bought two of them and they both work ; HP documentation available on the web is great ; Compact, Quiet, lots of usb ports, legal copy of Windows 7, includes keyboard and mouse

A couple of minor parts were missing from one of the computers. I told them about it - interesting to see if they do anything about it

HP Compaq DC7700

 

This computer came quickly, packaged well and does what I wanted it to do which is to do some web surfing and as a terminal for remote desktop

However when I first got it, it was losing time and bios settings due to a dead motherboard battery. You would think that the first thing you would do in refurbishing a computer is to replace the motherboard battery or at least test it. But it was easy...

Issues with half our order

 

I would most likely not order again from NewEgg.

The cost was low and we were able to buy 4 CPU's, with Keyboard and mouse. We also bought 4 LED screens and 5 USB headsets. We had them sent with Windows 7 and a copy of Office that allows up to 5 computers to use that copy

Of the 4 we ordered one did not work right out of the box and we were given an RMA immediately, It came back in worse condition, in that hardware was now broken as well. A second one quit after only 1 week, it was sent back and we are now down to 2...

Broken Machines

 

Not impressed by the QC department or the repair techs. I will think twice before purchasing anything else from NewEgg.

Half of our order worked out of the box

One of our CPU's was bad right out of the box ; A second CPU died within a few days ; An RMA was issued and we sent it back to be fixed when we got it back it was even worse because parts were broken and flopping around inside of the unit. Also the...
