Got this computer to replace one that had Window XP. When I bring it out of Sleep Mode, I get a blue screen crash. I have tried the microsoft fix for it but it is not applicable to this machine. Tried various other things- no luck. Finally, I gave up and just turned off the sleep mode. Seems to be working fine.Read More
The purchase was a great investment. Since the purchase of Windows 7 Professional would, in itself approximated the cost of this new PC. The PC performs well with a Dual Core Processor and 4 Gigs of Ram. I would not recommend this PC for Gaming, but for everyday task, the PC is great. It has multiple USB Ports in the rear of the PC and two USB Ports on the front panel. It even has a parallel and serial port. It was necessary to install Windows 7 from a partition on the hard drive and no CD or media was supplied with the unit. The installation was simple but more documentation could have been supplied. Regardless of the minor details, the transaction was good and I don't know of many places offering a Desktop Tower for approximately $200. I am quite satisfied with my purchase.Read More
I thought I was reciving an NEW Computer by mistake. It was so clean. It had Windows7 on it and I like Windows XP, so I sent it back. After thinking it over, I made a large MISTAKE. I should have tried to install Windows XP before I sent it back. I probably would have kept it.; I guess we all make mistakes. I am going to keep looking at Overstock.com in hopes that the same computer is offered again. If so, this time I will keep it.Read More

Didn't know what to expect. Had looked at other sites for refurbished towers and the other sites gave you the tower's capabilities but that is not what you received (750 GB hard drive but the one you get is only 250GB). One review said he found food in a "refurbished" tower!! Overstock sent EXACTLY what they advertised. Innards looked brand new as did the case. Extremely pleased. Since this was a business machine originally I had to buy a better sound card than was offered on the motherboard. Windows 7 installed as stated and was up and running within an hour.Read More
