Consumer review (newegg.com)

Reliable, not much bloatware, great price

 

I would recommend this product. It replaced the ASUS BP Series that is end of life in my office, happy with my decision.

Only about 5 programs that you need to uninstall Great price point powerful good warranty

I have not encountered any, yet.

Works

 

This is the second one of purchased the first one went into an office situation and when I upgraded to a16 gigs of ram it works perfect, two monitor setup,the person that uses it loves it she only uses it for office work and a little bit of internet of...

It's small doesn't take up a lot of room quiet and works

The only thing that holds it back is that it does not come with enough memory,4 gigs is not enough for office use

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Works like a champ

 

I own an older Dell Optiplex computer, and it's been rock solid for about 8 years, so that weighed heavily in my decision.

I selected this machine for a couple of reasons. I wanted Win 7 Pro because of its XP mode so I can continue to use an older, very expensive scanner, and I needed a legacy PCI slot ; I recently helped a non-tech-savvy person set up a "store bought" PC...

The machine arrived with a bad CD/DVD drive, but Dell sent me a replacement quickly with zero hassle ; I also found the Dell website somewhat lacking as it made it difficult to find detailed technical specs on their products
