I have my TV mounted above my fireplace, and didn't want wires from my cable box and other components sticking out all over the place (and didn't feel like investing in a mantle to hold them!). These work perfectly. Granted, the components are only about 6 feet away, but the picture is crystal clear in HD. The only thing I'm struggling with is the IR so that the remote signal carries to the components when my media cabinet is closed, but it's not the end of the world. It seems a bit finicky, but I'll either figure it out, or keep the door open when I'm lounging.
Excellent device. Easy to use. Simple USB plug-in. Was able to recover data from my system disk, which I had to replace because some blocks corrupted, and the system couldn't be recovered. New disk, reinstalled system, back up and running, but without my old data. This Docking Station let me recover it all. Watch out for other interfaces which don't work on this kind of disk (Dell Inspiron internal HDD). You can use this, with a spare HDD, as an external drive.
Had a couple scratches but otherwise a a nice buy. There are other refurbs out there around the same price, but this is a good buy if u interested in a higher power pc. I got this to use as a server and it performs well. If you want this for gaming it will work, but you might want a stronger graphics card. But the one that comes with this will get you a 6.6 in the windows experience. Memory and processor will get u a 7.6. Highest it goes is 7.9. If you wanted to image your os to a sdd u can do that. Just remember after imaging to plug ssd into first sata slot. Motherboard does have a second slot for another graphics card.
