Windows 7, NewEgg customer service

Do not buy this model, we had several hundred of these and they have a defect in the motherboard that would eventually cause the CPU and Power Supply fan to get stuck on high which is very annoying. Other issues would be that the network adapter would...

Got this for my mum to send emails and surf the net,it does this just perfectly. it is a little slow compared to modern stuff, but for emails and web surf it does the job great, I wouldn't even bother trying to transcode video or......... but that's...

I think it's a great deal, especially if you are aware of how to deal with computer-related issues.It was delivered quickly and packaged well. The hook-up was easy and I enjoyed seeing my computer arrive.For the record... Off Leased is similar to...

Very satisfied


Got this for my son. 3.2gh proc + ddr2 do the job well. I had 2g ddr2 mem from other computer to put in and it is fast and works well. Great low cost basic PC. Put in graphic card and more hd space for his games.

When they work, they're ok


Had to order 5 to get 3 that work. They are constantly overheating and having network issues. What do you expect for 140 dollars? Lesson learned, BUY NEW.

Good Price - Questionable Refurb Check


Bought two machines for retail POS use. Good price and performance, but one came with bad DVD drive and the other did not have operating system properly installed. The refurbisher and warranty vendor (US Micro) was very poor - never responded to emails...

Crummy Products


These machines left a very bad taste in our mouth. We've been customers for more than five years and this ends our relationship. Mistakes happen but to have to pay an extra $35 to mail this junk back is unacceptable to us.


Of the nine machines we bought three DVD players didn't work. We had OS system problems with two other and are in the process of sending another one back because of hardware failure. WARNING TO ALL: We're paying $35 to mail this machine back to...

Can't complain


It's going to make a great homework PC for the kids and kitchen media player while I'm cooking.

I was in it for the stable processor and the stable os and got both for little $. Mine was up and running in about an hour after activating/registering/updating os. Logged into home network in 1 minute and started streaming Christmas music, and later...

I usually don't like the small form factor because I'm always going to open and tinker but at this price it's almost disposable
