Consumer review by: Scotty I. (

Egg-cellent Value


Bought three of these. They came shrink wrapped, as described in regards to specs and had ZERO bloatware. A few updates (230) later, some basic software installs and they were ready to go

None so far. Simple. Basic. Goodness

Unit came DOA


inexpensive units which can serve the needs of demanding users. I have 2 units, bought a year ago, still functioning well

risk of DOA or sudden failure.. this unit came with a bad power on/off button which is stuck. In summary the quality of the units depends on due diligence of the refurbisher

Good rebuilt


MTC that refurbed this unit was very thoughtful. Pre installed 3 or 4 programs that saves about 6 hours that everyone has to do ; NewEgg doesn't list them as supplier but watch for such listing ; I like rebuilts. off lease in general. Have purchased...

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...
