Heavy signs of wear
By Noah Dean Ballard
Have yet to actually turn it on because I didn't realize that the graphics card doesn't support HDMI. I concede that this was an oversight by me as I have, since, viewed the product details and should have noticed that in fact, it says VGA and Displayport. However, it was still disappointing, as now I am waiting on a Displayport to HDMI cable.
Biggest complaint is that the case/box/tower (the box that is the computer tower and not the box it was shipped in) is hammered. The plastic face on the front is extremely loose and it appears as though the technician who "refurbished" it had the touch of a rapist because the tabs that hold the face snuggly to the box are broken and the box is dented and scratched...and something is rattling around inside the case. Generally speaking, the statement "This Certified Refurbished product is tested and certified by the manufacturer or by a third-party refurbisher to look and work like new, with limited to no signs of wear" Is definitely not true with respect to the appearance of the machine. I am curious to see if it performs but, like I said, I am waiting on a cable.

Machine seems fine Windows is corrupted though
By John Mahoney
You will need to reinstall Windows. Machine seems to be in good working order but Windows is old, from Taiwan and though in English is clearly messed up. Could not get the system to update. If you don't mind doing a Windows reinstall then the system so far is fine. I will update this review after I finish reinstalling windows and setting system up.

I should have known better
Stupid me, I waited 10 days past the final return date before I got a chance to plug this in and try it. The sound card doesn't work and Windows Update is corrupt and this thing will not update Windows 7. You're screwed if you can't get Windows Update to work. It's also very noisy.
Other than that it's a very fast computer.
Now it's just a giant $400 paperweight! Warning to all, when you get something electronic, try it out as soon as possible.
