The computer and price is great. Customer service at Overstock is great. I was about to buy an 8 GB, 1.0 TB, Windows 8 HP computer and 20 HP monitor at Sams. This computer is faster, had 1.5 TB and is loaded with Windows 7. I really did not want Windows 8. Plus, my previous experience with factory reconditioned hardware is good, and the package with an Asus 20 monitor and extended warranty on both cost less than the computer from Sams. If you are lucky you will have no problems and a great deal. I was not lucky. The first computer would not recognize the product code (changed during reconditioning) to validate the Windows 7 software. I spent a LOT of time with both HP and Microsoft (a long story). I should have called Overstock first. The customer rep arranged for a replacement computer to be sent the next day to swap for mine. An easy process. The second computer worked fine, except the DVD drive did not work. I called Overstock first, their tech rep confirmed that the DVD was not working but I had to go through Joy Systems, who actually does the refurbishing, to get a replacement. It took a 50 minute wait to get to a very good tech rep who gave me a choice of another full computer swap or just swapping the DVD, which I chose since the computer works great. I was not done yet. The new DVD arrived without the bolts on the side to keep the DVD in place. Overstock offered to pay for them, but I got them for free at a local computer repair place. Bottom line. Joy Systems has a quality control problem. I was persistent, had time the to spend and still feel I got a good deal for a good computer. p.s. Not obvious from photo, but computer is designed to sit horizontally, but works both ways.

My old Desktop office computer died and I needed a replacement just for billing customers, book keeping and working on my website. No surfing planned No Gaming planned Just the basics... and I didn't want Windows 8 under any circumstances. I recently bought a new laptop and it came with Windows 8. The learning curve for W8 is long and even when you get familiar with it, it still is a frustrating software. MS blew it this time. I'm very happy with Windows 7 on this machine. The price was very reasonable and it looks and runs like a new computer. The only problem is that it doesn't have a telephone 'line in' connection. Most people don't need one but I have an old school modem that is used, only, to connect to equipment at customer's residences. There is a work around but it's clumsy. I'd recommend this refurbished computer to anyone just needing the basics with a ton of hard drive space.

So glad to find this computer. I was not easy to find a Windows 7 computer with the features I wanted (I did not want Windows 8). Computer is very quiet. The case is not too big. Fast boot. Did not come loaded with software I didn't want. I mainly play Facebook games. Game play is good.

The purchase of the DELL OptiPlex 780 Core 2 was everything I expected. Needing to upgrade to Windows 7 Pro and acquire a computer with more "horsepower" and yet accomplish the task at a reasonable cost looked to be a real challenge. Then our IT Director suggested looking on Overstock.com. I was pleasantly surprised to see a number of options well within my budget. After a bit of research on each of the candidate machines, I selected the one that seemed best. The purchasing process was easy; delivery timely; and the machine with pre-installed Windows 7 Pro met my expectations. Great job and thanks to everyone, including my company IT "guru".

I bought this for my son and we were a little skeptical but since it had a warranty we decided to take a chance. We are completely satisfied. It looks brand new and we haven't had any problems at all. In fact, I will probably buy one for myself within the year.

When we got the computer, it would not power up as we were expecting and when we tried to install the program with the backup disk, we were not successful. After several attempts, several calls for support and a 30 minute wait for tech support, we were walked through the installation process and it has been working fine since then. It was frustrating at first, because we were told that all we had to do was connect and power up, but it works well now.

Was very pleased to get a quality PC at such a great price. The system was easy to set up and everything worked great. This was purchased for an elementary school-aged family member and will be more than adequate for her needs. Having the PC be upgraded to Windows 7 and have flexibility to expand the system is a real bonus - the Windows 7 software alone costs more than half the price of this PC! After seeing the quality of this system, I will not be buying new when I need to replace my own computer, I will be refurbished through Overstock!

Received computer on time and was as ordered. My only problem with it is the screen display. Windows 7 must take a different screen size because the display is to large for my screen. I lose about one inch on the left of the screen, but you can get around that by minimizing the screen and pulling the sides out . As for the way the computer works other wise it's a great buy.

This computer is an excellent value. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles, but we found the speed to be very good. We also like the fact that it had Windows 7. The only thing we didn't know was that it was not wireless compatible. That was easily fixed by purchasing a usb wireless adapter for 20 bucks.

Quite satisfied with this purchase. I would buy another just like it, if I had a need for another computer.

Computer arrived promptly and nicely packaged. No problems getting it up and running. Nice clean installation of Windows 7. No bloatware. Did take a long time with updates to get it current, and came with IE8(!!!). New (cheap) keyboard and mouse. Didn't find out until I started loading software that the DVD drive had an issue. Takes repeated tries to get the tray to open. Despite the 1 year warranty, Overstock refused to exchange the malfunctioning drive for another. Only option I guess is to send the whole machine back for an exchange. Less trouble to swap the drive from my old computer into this one.

I bought this for my wife to replace a laptop that went bad. There was basically no instructions regarding getting the windows 7, office, or the other programs started. On stop of that, the Lenovo folks found a big bug in one of the crapware, and it had to be removed. I think it was removed, but the instructions left much to be desired. I had a hard time with the windows 7 tranfer windows 7 program due to the number of passwords that were needed. I recognize I am a mediocre amatuer computer guy, but I manage to serve several offices and programs in a medium law office. So whatever, I got the machine running, transferred, added back critical programs, and gave it to my wife (a month late). She seems very happy with the size, weight, speed,color, clarity, sound, etc, so if Mama's happy, so am I.

We needed two computers with Windows 7, because no one wanted to use Windows 8, and these computers worked out great.

Works fine. Initial problem with one DIMM Chip not completely seated. Once the chip was properly seated it running like it should.

I ordered this computer to replace one that I had been using for 8 years. I wasn't used to much since my computer was so old and this one was so inexpensive but boy was I surprised! This computer comes complete with windows 7 and is lightening fast. And yet it was under 200 dollars, how amazing is that?! This perfect for me and I would recommend it to anyone who has a set location for a computer in their home office or at work! Very, very pleased!

this computer met all my expectations it's fast, has plenty of memory both ram & hard drive. the video graphics card does all i need. i don't play video games so can't comment on how it would work with them. it does seem to turn itself completely off if left on for a long period of time, not sleep mode complete shutdown. not a real problem, just strange.
