  • Computer doesn't work

    Computer doesn't stay on. Computer didn't work right out of the box so I'm returning. In addition to having a computer that doesn't work I have to pay to ship it back. Pretty good deal for Overstock. Sell computers that don't work then charge the customer to ship them back too.

  • Really great deal if it worked

    I was really excited at the deal I got and wanted this as the perfect Christmas gift. I recieved the PC and it kept turning off and would not load windows. I called Tech Support and they sent me a new Hard drive and said that that should fix the issue. I installed it and the same problems occured. I sent the Tower back to tech support 3 weeks ago and have not heard from them at all. I have email them multiple times with no response. Meanwhile I have not PC at home and no idea when I will get something that works.

  • Worth the price

    This machine does what I need it to do. I needed a compuer with a faster processor. The only flaw is that it does not include DVD software or MS Media codec to go along with the player. No big deal, I had the software.

  • Warranty gripe

    I'm pleased with the product and the overall transaction. It came with a 1 year warranty but with no explanation on how to process a claim. Had to call customer service to find out I need to contact customer service for a warranty claim. Warranty details should be easily accessible on the Overstock website or attached to the order acknowledgement.

  • IBM PC

    So far everything works. Case has scratches, definitely a "B" item. Restore CD that comes with it is not the same as the factory restore CD. Keyboard and mouse are generic, not IBM. IBM is a well though out and well built PC.

  • Disappointed

    We bought 4 of these refurbished computers. Three were dead on arrival. We were able to fix one of them by reinstalling the OS, but the other two had to be returned to the refurbisher for repair. They came back several weeks later with the same problems - they evidently did nothing to repair them and just sent them back to us as is. Very frustrating. We have requested an RMA from as these two computers are non-functional. I would not recommend them.
