Consumer review by: denpick (newegg.com)

Fine machine. Fast and easy

 

Standard width case appears to take full height adapter cards. HP are usually very quiet.

Has both DVI and VGA so it supports dual monitors out of the box. 2GB Ram with and Business Windows/7, 32bit is perfect for business user who isn't editing video or playing high frame rate games

Does not have any PS/2 jacks so only USB Keyboards and Mice will work. It comes with both of course ; Only just installed today but HP is generally good quality

HP Pro 3500 - Core i3 3220 3.3 GHz - Monitor : none.

 

Mine works great and the price is decent for the specs. It does seem like its made from pretty cheap tin but it works.

HP Pro 3500 - Core i3 3220 3.3 GHz - Monitor : none.

 

Another quality budget workstation from HP. The 4Gb RAM is more than enough for the office applications, and what little bloatware provided is easy enough to remove. Will be buying some more to replace some old computers.

HP Pro 3500 - Core i3 3220 3.3 GHz - Monitor : none.

 

We just got in some of the Hewlett Packard Pro 3400 Series MT, We opted for the i5, with 4GB of RAM. There nice we have users that the systems are over kill for the work they do but hopefully when we go to replace them in a few years they will not be...

HP Pro 3500 - Core i3 3220 3.3 GHz - Monitor : none.

 

decent fast business desktop. Construction is fairly light so if feels a bit "budget" next to the HP Smal Form Factor machines we have here, despite outclassing them in terms of performance.

HP Pro 3500 - Core i3 3220 3.3 GHz - Monitor : none.

 

Rock solid little machines with good driver support and great performance. Very compact and it is a good thing they are reliable, because they would be difficult to work inside.

HP Pro 3500 - Core i3 3220 3.3 GHz - Monitor : none.

 

Decent for a small form-factor PC, but very little expand-ability. 4gb max for RAM and hard to get to anything internal. Not bad for a lower-end machine, though.

Consumer review by: Enzeder (cdw.com)

HP Pro 3500 - Core i3 3220 3.3 GHz - Monitor : none.

 

Nice quite reliable unit. They are modest units but run Win7 Pro nicely with 2 gigs of RAM. Deducted one star because the power buton often gets stuck (we have about 10 of these units and it happens on most of them).
