Operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)
Bought this to replace previous purchase that crashed. Overstock gave me full credit for the return and even paid the return shipping charges. This one has more memory and cost a little bit more (my choice). Been buying from Overstock for quite awhile and will continue, darned good people to deal with.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Image looks like Tower - Product is Desktop
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Looks new
Hadn't purchased from overstock.com in long time because I frankly forgot the good deals I had had a few years back. Have been more than satisfied by this purchase. PC came quickly and was packed carefully. Tracking was helpful as were updates. Price paid was fair. Have been using the PC for over 4 months w/o any problems. Will purchase more from overstock.com in the future. In fact I ordered another PC for my wife today.
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.
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.
It looks like a new unit and works quite well. I bought this computer to run my security cameras but it runs so well and fast I use it for other things as well including online games. I agree with other reviews that the mouse and keyboard do not appear to be on par with the quality of the computer but I was not buying those, my interest was the computer. I have this computer running 24/7 monitoring the cameras plus surfing the net and doing some gaming...so far so good.
I have just set it up and am downloading old XP machine over but would add a few things for now. It is wisper quite, laying flat I am able to put it on the desk top and it is just a few feet from me. I can hardly hear the fan motor. It is a direct plug and play from my old XP machine so it only took me a few minutes to switch out the plugs. That being said I can leave the old machine where it is and if there is something on it I need just switch the plugs back. It is much more powerfull than anything out on the market right now so I believe it should be good to go.
Computer worked great right out of the box--was shipped promptly. When it arrived it was well packaged, looked like a new computer. No scratches or dings on the case. After 20 days it continues to operate like the day we received it. Only has windows loaded on it, no "bloatware" which was a real plus. Only problem, the power cord was defective, but it was quickly replaced.
Product is a refurbished HP, and it shows. Has some glitches I have seen but have yet to figure out where and why but I bought this because I was not ready to buy new and needed one cheap and NOW. Shipping was SLOW, slower than any other order for anything I have placed at any other website. Not sure of the quality but when I have to direct my new refurbished PC to open and which version I am reminded its used. I also have had several weird things happen, but not often enough to figure out if its a problem or just some weird occurrence. The product appears to be ok, even with occasional strange behavior but how ever shipped it dropped a ball, made me wait a LONG TIME and I am used to amazon, they ship quick as possible and I like that.
Our old Compaq died last Xmas for no reason ( maybe an overload) power supply smoked motherboard fried so we needed a desktop for the business urgently however, windows 8 is not user friendly and not software friendly so we started shopping around, we found this one to be the best bang for the buck, it's fast, it has enough memory and the hard drive also was the biggest from all that we found, and also it was still windows 7 which means that we could transfer all the software and everything would work and we'd be back in business again, sure enough the wait was well worth it, that's all the complain if any that I would point out but we blamed it on the weather, in short, we might buy another one very soon and hope it comes with the same quality as this first one.
I plan on connecting this to my older tv and I was wondering if this product had an s-video port on it.... And does it play games like The Sims 1,2,3, etc. I just need a cheap computer that will play games decently.blankphotograph on Mar 9, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
