Very happy with purchase


HP has done a fine job on this machine, and having the remote absolutely rocks!!!

I wanted a duel purpose machine, a HTC, and one to do all the other stuff. Was just about to build one when I saw this and decided to pull the trigger as I couldn't have built one with these specs at this price. So far performs like a champ. Would...

Super Buy


My first experience with micro-ATX case and am finding additions of any kind are a "pain" at best & problematic. Wanted to remove modem to add e-SATA back plate and found would have to disconnect way too much to do it; but guess this is true of all...

Great deal on good performance system -- initial concerns about "refurbished" so far unfounded. System and all individual components have worked flawlessly thus far. So quiet sometimes wonder if fans even working. Bang for buck is super ; try just...

Great deal, worth it.


Running off of two monitors using my bigger one as my main. Playing one game on one screen and watching a movie or talking to my friends on the other. Tis fun. Har har! Must buy. 5 Neweggs! I love Newegg!

Works great, even though it's refurbished I saw no dings or anything, the components were all in place. Plays Fallout 3, Elder Scrolls IV well on high 1280 x 1024( I need to get a better monitor, tight budget though.) The 6 gigs of ram is awesome....

The space inside the box. The External HD Hub is in the way of many things, like the RAM board ports and where the internal HDs go. But I won't upgrade it, at least not for a while. But for some people this may be a big problem. Vista, I am very fond...

Great Buy!


The video card was set to run as PCI in the Bios, I switched this to PCIEx16 and the video card runs as expected after making this switch. Still not top of the line video card but you should know its not top of the line when purchasing this machine....

The computer is everything its advertised to be. Core 2 Quad makes for great multitasking capabilities. Computer nice and quite. Everything I would expect out of a mid level Quad core machine

Video card fan runs high and loud on boot but once Vista loads it returns to normal speed, being nice and quiet. I wouldn't really consider this a con, normal computer function

Why does HP support think the machine is out of warranty? HP support leaves a lot to be desired.


Just send me the replacment video card and life will be good. If when the PC was refurbished the tech had caught the fan problem or if HP's phone support was more responsive the machine would have been rated higher.

Newegg is the fastest shipper ever. I ordered the PC on Sunday and I had it on Tuesday. The machine is a good deal for the money and the contents were in excellent and possibly unused condition. The feature set is excellent and the case is nice. I...

The fan on my video card sounds like there are baseball cards in the spokes. ( its Noisy ) HP support said my machine is out of warranty so I faxed them proof of purchase on Wed. I called back on Friday and they were updating their systems and was told...

Excellent PC for 1/2 the price of a new one


An excellent machine for the price. This deal is the best I could find!

Very fast, does everything well. My PC had the Happauge WinTV-HVR 1800 card installed, so I am not sure about the comments of the low quality recordings. When used with my DLink 750 Media Extender the video is of excellent quality. The video card is...

It would be nice if it came with 8GB memory and a faster processor, but at this price, I can't complain

Motherboard Shorted


Came with the Seaking 1.0 video card if you do your research that and the 1.1 are the ones that make the horrible fan noise the 1.2's are supposed to be ok.

Could not build this box for the price there selling it for

Would not power on as soon as I got it. Isolated the problem to the 4pin ATX power connector. Called customer service and did the dog and pony show for them of checking everything else i'm sending it back to be replaced

Satisfied customer


for the amount of money we paid for this computer, it is definitely a good purchase. like I said, if you're a moderate gamer and a student like me, this computer would be great for you. Most people replace the 9500 graphics card, but if you're kinda...

all of the contents inside appear to be brand new, very fast computer, nice deal for the amount of memory+video card+quad processor+cheap price(sort of). I'd definitely recommend this one to anyone who is in the market for a computer that is...

First look at it, the only thing that appears to be used is the box(tower case) itself. my case has a few scratches on the rear of it. Not a big deal at all

Not Bad for Pre built


I do my research and since technology changes so fast I live and die by researching product purchases. So even though this system reviewed well it does not mean every hp system reviews well and I would look at each one individually. That goes for...

Nice..... Could not build for price. Asus motherboard. This is my third hp elite series. I bought two 9150f with monitor combos and do not regret it. This one has the faster cpu with single 750 sata drive. I like the core 2 quad chips. This board will...

It's refurbished some scratches on the case but nothing to cry about. Fan is loud spinning at higher rpms when system boots but quites down once vista starts to run. Refurbs may not be for be for the novice unless you get lucky. I think people who work...
