The computer is as described. The price at around $300 is a pretty good deal. Plenty of memory(4 mgs ram and 1TB). Windows 7 professional is included. I wish they'd charge a little more and give you a better keyboard. The mouse is fine. Overall I'm very satisfied.

Really like computer, no need to put floppy drive in waste of space, rather have more memory (ram) which ddr2 is in demand and expensive 4 2gb ram chips almost same a my new ddr3 memory ram at 2 8gb chips. overall great buy for money. suggest adding xtend replacement plan on any refurbushed item just in case, not had any problems except finding ram/memory at good price. but really a floppy not even used anymore. suggest upgrade on that.

MY WINDOWS XP2000 WAS NO LONGER SUPPORTED SO I FINALLY HAD TO GET A NEW TOWER. I USE WINDOWS 7 PRO AT WORK SO I DECIDED TO GO WITH THAT. I SHOWED ONE OF OUR IS TECH GUYS AT WORK SOME OF THE UNITS AT OVERSTOCK AND HE SAID GO WITH HP. THE UNIT CAME SHRINK WRAPPED IN PLASTIC WITH HARDLY A MARK ON IT. I INITIATED THE WINDOWS 7 THAT WAS INSTALLED TO MAKE SURE THE UNIT WIORKED THEN TOOK IT TO THE IS GUY WHO MOVED MY OLD FILES TO THIS UNIT AND UPDATED WINDOWS 7. I CAN'T HEAR IT RUN. SO FAR SO GOOD. AS I'D RATHER SPEND $$$ INSTEAD OF 3 OR 4 TIMES THAT MUCH.

The computer was really good. I got a great price and the phone help was great. I had to learn Windows 7 but that was OK. I spoke to 4 or 5 service reps and the service was excellent. I am happy with the experience and would recommend your site to a friend.

Low price for considerable function: dual processor and 4 GB RAM. Loaded with Fedora 18 Linux this is a great machine for writing and testing code. Getting Linux to use the nvidia graphics driver was challenging, as usual, but Fedora 18's YUM extender handled it eventually.

When I was looking for a desktop to replace a loooong chain of laptops, I landed on this one, the HP 6005 Pro. For one, I wanted an AMU computer which I could put the Phenom II processor in, and be able to expand up to 16 GB of RAM. In addition, this computer has all the PCI slots I'll need for what I want, and three times as much storage as my laptop did. So on screen, it looked good. It didn't hurt that Overstock was also selling it tax free and with free shipping. It was also the cheapest price for this exact computer (a lot of websites have it, I guess this company is refurbishing a lot of these.) As I said, on screen, it looks good. So I ordered it, and got a delivery date of 4 business days from when I ordered it, and despite the product being in processing for three days, they did deliver it on time. From what I can see, O.co isn't GREAT at delivering certain things on time, but this is an item you can be sure you will get. In person, it's really nice. Mine did have what looked like a sticky spot where there was a sticker or something on it, but otherwise it was flawless. It is packaged safely in the box, so you don't need to worry about impact issues (at least from after it was boxed). It's performance so far is good. Because it comes with Windows 7 32 bit, you only have 3 GB of usable RAM, but 4 GB installed, with 1 GB reserved for certain other processes. If you don't know what this means and you just need a daily computer, then this computer is for you! It is likely you will not even ever fill up all 750 GB of space! A couple things to note, as reviews (from many websites, not just this one) will say, the computer comes with nothing on it. At all. If you open up your task manager, there are only three or four tasks running from the get go. You need to connect to the internet before you even get anything started. I tried playing FreeCell before I had my wifi adapter, and it would lag because I didn't have the graphics driver installed. I went into Windows Update and had to install 139 updates, 19 of which didn't install the first time, and 1 that didn't install the second time. Once you get those done, you're fine. In addition, the fan on the computer is a little noisy. I think I've read that a couple people just replaced it and had no problems, but my sister listening to it thought it was fireworks outside, so if that's an issue, have a fan ready! I also read somewhere that the keyboard and mouse felt really cheap, but I don't see how they're any better or worse than any other store bought desktop bundle. I also believe that Overstock has the keyboard and mouse listed as PS/2 input, but they are in fact USB. They keyboard doesn't have a Windows Key on it, but the button is still the same. In the end, as is, even if you don't want to upgrade it like me, the computer is a solid computer. This is, of course, a review written after two days. I'll come back after I'm a good ways through the school year and say how well it's held up for me.

This computer was packaged as if it were new. Included was a document explaining the refurbishing process and listing all of the tests it "passed." Each component was either wrapped or contained in plastic, and some were also in their own boxes (the keyboard and mouse). Here are some details that I would want to know if I were considering buying it: 1. It is NOT a tower; I believe it's meant to sit horizontally. I'm sure you can use it vertically if you want. But the design is horizontal and the DVD drive is oriented that way. It's a small form factor computer, which means it's not as large as most. Very nice size! 2. The box actually states that the hard drive is 1.5 GB, which is, I assume, why the description on Overstock lists that. This IS an error, the hard drive is 1.5 TB. 3. The keyboard and mouse included with the unit I purchased are an off-brand -- iMicro. The keyboard has a smaller backspace button and may have some other less-than-convenient features. I made my son take it and kept the keyboard I had with the computer I passed to my son. The mouse seems to work okay. But if you're expecting a name brand (as I would with an HP computer) you might be disappointed. I don't know if this is true for all of these; maybe when it was refurbished they had to replace the originals for some reason, I don't know. 4. This computer does not appear to have WiFi -- it certainly doesn't have an antenna. It doesn't advertise WiFi, and I don't need it since I'm right next to the router and a wired Ethernet connection is faster anyway. I'm just pointing this out for those who didn't read the fine print. 5. The other thing lacking is an HDMI port. It has VGA. It does have traditional ports for non-USB mouse and keyboard, though the mouse and keyboard included were of the USB variety. The computer has 10 USB ports so you won't be scrambling to find a place to plug in your camera. I am very happy with this purchase, and also with the quick turn-around time. Free shipping and a holiday weekend and I still think it only took 2-3 business days to get here.
