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

HP DC7900

 

I bought this to replace an ancient P4 2.6gzh that I was using in the bedroom to stream netflix. This system is more than up to the task of basic streaming and video playback. I reformatted and installed win 7 x64 just incase I ever wanted to add more...

For a little bit more than the price of a windows 7 key you get a complete system. Granted this system is old, however the core 2 duo is a great processor that's still up to web browsing and internet streaming, which is exactly what I was looking for

Biggest issue for me was that the displayport is video only. This means that even with a displayport to HDMI adapter you will not get audio to the tv. I ended up using the VGA output to the tv (thankfully my tv has a vga input) It would have been nice...

Computer worked

 

Cheap, comes with everything. Just what i was looking for

Some of the drivers where not installed properly.. if your buying this.. Better have someone tech savay around. It took me 4 hours to get all the drivers installed properly on the system. After that it worked flawlessly.. But its hard to find stock...

Love the vertical monitor but poorly packaged

 

Despite the amazingly poor packaging, everything was present and in working order.

I've always preferred my monitor in portrait aspect, that is, taller than it is wide. Alas, the rest of the world likes them ever wider and shorter. Very few monitors can rotate, even though most graphic desktops will happily rotate to match. One of...

I was horrified to find a split-open, worn-out cardboard box dumped in my driveway, the contents exposed to the weather. The monitor and the desktop case were surrounded by foam cages, which might have sufficed in an intact box. The monitor has a...

Terrible packaging, love my vertical monitor

 

I was surprised and pleased how fast this got to me, less than 24 hours! But I was horrified to find a split-open cardboard box dropped in my driveway by UPS. Barely taped and with the sides caving in, it was open to the elements. Inside were the case...

Always preferred monitors in portrait aspect, taller than they are wide. Alas, not only do very few monitors rotate, the rest of the world decided they wanted their screens even wider and shorter! The description didn't mention it, but one of the...

Very poorly packaged for shipping; they just wrapped the two biggest pieces in foam and then threw everything into a worn-out cardboard box with minimal taping. Shame ; On the theory that if it had been broken I could RMA it, I won't take off stars for...
