Oops, my mistake!

 

In my initial review, I said the monitor had a long cut in the plastic screen surface. Just recently, it looked like some dirt had got caught in the cut, so I rubbed at it. To my great surprise and embarrassment, the whole "cut" stripped right off! It...

Monitor rotates to portrait aspect, machine is as described, runs nicely. No bloatware, but has Open Office. Quick delivery (see my review from 2/25/2015)

Packaging was appalling (see my review from 2/25/2015)

Great for the price

 

All in all, it's hard to beat getting such a lovely computer for less than $150. Other than some hiccups getting Windows activated, it's run fault-free. The wifi card is an added bonus, as it allows me to have it connected to two networks at once - one...

Inexpensive for what you get. The small size works out great. Fan is noticeable, but not unusually so

Hard drive a bit small. Windows activation had to proceed over the phone

Not responsive at all

 

Service call out of the box is not good at all.

Price is low, shipping was on time

Not responsive out of the box. I am not sure what the problem is at this time I got it for a client and I got the call this morning that something was going to have to be done. I will respond when I get done checking it out. It is not what I expected...

Not for tinkerers

 

Don't buy this with the intention of beefing it up using spare parts unless you like messing with security screws and anti-tamper gadgets

Works well and arrived with the exact specs as described, even including a DVD burner despite the description saying it has a DVD-ROM ; Windows 7 is preinstalled, there are only a few setup questions to go before you're up and running. The installation...

Included keyboard and mouse are a bit cheesy. There are a few dings and scratches on the exterior, but the interior is spotless ; Speaking of the interior... this thing had the side panel held on by security screws, (Torx screws with a center pin) with...

Good quality sound but...

 

If you need something for just everyday computing, these should work fine.

Good for everyday computing like surfing and email. Very minimal wear on outside case. Was clean on inside. Don't expect these to be power houses. They are just basic computers

Tried to use for HTPC because of small size. Power supply is proprietary. The ones I received were only 230 watt. Could no find a replacement that would fit inside the case because of size and shape. Tried to use Nvidia GT630 card to get the HDMI port...

So far so good

 

Super quiet, which was a key goal. I use this as a server so it is always running in my home office. The Core 2 Duo is not being overtaxed in this use, so it's hard to talk about performance.

Very quiet ; Clean Win7 image without bloatware ; Gigabit ethernet onboard ; Room for expansion for second full sized HDD

DVD ROM drive drawer sticks but I hardly ever use discs

Worked like a charm

 

I originally wanted to use this as my HTPC to run Kodi up to my living room TV. I bought a DisplayPort to HDMI converter but found out the the computer hardware is not setup to transfer the audio through the DisplayPort. Repurposed the machine as a...

Worked right away. Copy of Windows was Windows 7 Home Premium. They did a good job at setting the OEM image for out of the box use. Just an FYI the DisplayPort (DP++) does not transfer audio

none. Product as described. All hardware worked

Exactly What I Needed!

 

Worked great right out of the box - I use it for personal use and to log in for remote access to my workstation. Nice and responsive, great price for what is provided

DVD drive would not open when everything was put together, so after advising the company who refurbished the product, they sent another DVD drive free of charge
