A GREAT COMPUTER AT A GREAT PRICE!
I PURCHASED THIS DELL OPTIPLEX 790 TO REPLACE MY DELL OPTIPLEX 745 WHICH "DIED" AFTER MANY YEARS OF USE. DELL COMPUTERS HAVE NEVER FAILED ME. THIS COMPUTER HAS A LARGE HARD DRIVE AND QUICK RESPONSIVENESS. IT ALSO CAME WITH A PLUG IN KEYBOARD AND MOUSE, WHICH I DID NOT NEED, AS I USE A WIRELESS KEYBOARD AND MOUSE OF COURSE, IT COMES WITH WINDOWS 10, WHICH IS QUITE DIFFERENT THAT THE WINDOWS VERSIONS I'VE HAD PREVIOUSLY. I AM STILL GETTING TO LEARN THE INS AND OUTS OF WINDOWS 10, BUT THAT IS NOT THE COMPUTERS ISSUE
- Value for money
Awesome computer. The last one I bought from Walmart in 2007 was a Optiplex 745 and it lasted 12 years. These computers were built for office use and live long. I upgraded to this one due to the Windows 7 eclipse and having boot up problems with the old one. I would reccomend this product highly.
This is a deal that really works
The last time I bought from this source, I ran my business for 7 years on the PC I bought. Just bought another for home use, and so far absolutely perfect... it is older, of course, and does not have the speed of new models, but it is more than fast enough for my needs. I highly recommend.
Fast ship, works fine (horrible Frontier internet)
Fast shipping, seems to work fine (horrendous Frontier internet service and Windows10 notwithstanding). Have not yet connected any additional computers but looking forward to my personal network. Worked great when first set up, but things suddenly went downhill after Windows10 ""upgrade"" - that and horrible Frontier internet service have left me with a S-L-O-W machine, after I managed to get it working again after Windows10 was done with it. No, I'm not angry about that or anything, but add me to a class action suit against Gates, for sure. Giving seller/Dell the benefit of the doubt, but I've had issues with at least 3 other PCs due to Windows10. Have been without most of my personal computers for at least 3 months thanks to Windows10 (and I'm talking to you, Gates) so definitely don't have a lot of choice/options these days, but I would buy this desktop again.
Very good value for the price I paid.
Although this is an older model, it is still newer and faster than the PC that it replaced. It is definitely not a high-powered gaming system, but it is perfectly fine for my purposes. I particularly like that there is no "bloatware" on the PC, only the operating system and a few other apps, such as software for the DVD/RW. It was only $100 from this particular vendor and is in very good condition. I have seen various prices from different vendors for the same system, from a low of $100 to over $300 so you would be wise to shop around and compare prices and specs.
All in all a great computer for the price.
This computer was very simple to hook up. The case looks very good to be refurbished. The video graphics were a disappointment I thought they could've been a little better.
- For the house
Great for the price
My son really likes it. The first one we bought stopped working within about a week but we had no problem sending it back and order another and it's working great.
The description is inaccurate, there is only one display port, not 2 as the picture(s) shows. Also the computer is a SFF, (Small Form Factor) The description should have mentioned all the connections that were available on this computer.
junk, junk, junk
junk! bought this June 22nd and waited for shipment. As of today I've still not been able to use it for anything. You don't even have to touch it and browser windows keep popping up and I've never installed a single thing because it won't let me, nor will it allow windows updates to be installed on it. I need to return this before I lose my mind.
I am not impressed with this product at all. It has froze up on me a few times now and wouldn't come back on for a few hours. I may be sending this product back if it does it again. Not too happy about spending $200 and it taking a dump every other time I use it
Works great and was exactly what I was looking for.
It never worked. I had to return the item.
I was really satisfied with the product ! Just what I need !
I may never buy a new computer again.
I nabbed two of these last month for light office work. I'm pleased to report I'm very satisfied. Both were well packed, loaded with Win. 10 and even though the cases show some wear, the insides are new and more quiet than any computer I've ever had. Also much more power and storage. I may never buy a new computer again.
So Far So Good
Really too early to tell.So far so good.Will give another review at a later date.
Cant activate Windows to get updates
Nice computer but Windows key is not valid, canât activate windows for updates. Also cant personalize computer without being able to activate Windows. Big Problem, now have to pay for Windows to get a valid license when this says it comes with Windows.
The packaging was'nt the best. It had a lot of scratches on it. Scared me a little. Most people would of probably just packed it back up and sent it back. But once hooked up it was like new. My grandmother was very pleased With it. It runs her favorite site of pogo good. Over all you can't beat the price. My biggest complant is really just the packaging. For a refurbished Tower, I don't think you could ask for anything better.
This computer is super sssslllooowww takes way to long to start up or find anything on line. I give this one a BIG thumbs down, wish Id never bought it.
Love love love my new computer! Bought it to work remotely while the kids are out of school. I use multiple apps at once for work and requires a computer with speed and this Dell does the job well. With my previous computer I use to hate working from home as there would be log time opening up webpages and applications. But not with this computer. I strongly recommend this computer. Oh and I love how the seller has all their contact and warranty info download as a file on the desktop- makes it easy to reach them. And it was delivered 4 days earlier than the expected delivery date.
Computer refurbished new to me.
I bought it refurbished. It works like new. I would buy it again.
