I had to buy and return two of these before I caught on that they are a hit and miss deal. The refurbisher probably runs these through pretty fast and if you are lucky, you will get a really great buy but if not, you've wasted your time. Al I can say is that Overstock customer service was great in handling the returns and I will order often from Overstock in the future - just not refurb computers.
I needed a Win 7 machine and found it here at overstock, I'm a Dell person because of their support and abilities for restore disk(which i have). but this unit was to be purchased with a 750gig hd and it came in as 1tb(cool). windows 7 (FRESH) ready to be installed! all went perfect. I love the No SHIPPING cost! would purchase again
GREAT VALUE HERE, Everything worked as expected out of the box. Very fast, Powerful computer. I am impressed. I use this computer for a home business. Often, I will have 5 programs (or more) running at the same time, and this computer handles it easily. Can't beat it for the price. I'd recommend this one to anyone.
This refurbished computer was not checked--even though a check list of hardware diagnostic checks came with it. The battery was supposed to have at least 75% charge, but upon starting, an error message saying voltage was very low came on. Had to open case, replace battery and still Windows screen would not come up. Ended up having a technician come over and tinker with it and then had problems loading MS Office. At times, the drive sounded loud and balky. I cannot recommend this based on my non-techie experience with it.
I never bought any brand name computers beside ACER since 1984 ! This is my first Dell product to try out. For sure, the price is affordable and the product is good. Optiplex 755 was designed for Windows XP, but was loaded with Windows 7 Professional. Operation of the PC is very good, but the Microsoft updates for Windows 7 gave me headache. Of course that is a problem of Microsoft. I will definitely buy more Dell product in the future.
