5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value For A Top-Notch Computer
Purchasing a computer formerly used in a corporate environment provides a more robust "infrastructure" for reliability and expansion; if you're willing to take a chance. While the description of "insanely fast" is a stretch, it is a fast computer for it's category. But, more than fast, the small niceties like easy card addition (a small "door" opens to reveal the card...

This review is from: Dell Optiplex 755 Desktop Computer, Featuring Intel's Fast and Powerful 2.33GHz Core2 Duo Processor, Enough Power for Today and Tomorrow, 3GB DDR2 Interlaced High Performance Memory, Extra Large 250GB Super Fast SATA Hard Drives, Crystal Clear VGA Video, DVDRW/CDRW, Write CD's, Watch and Record DVD Movies, Intregrated Lan/Audio, Windows Xp Professional Restore Disk, Windows 7 Capable (Personal Computers)
Purchasing a computer formerly used in a corporate environment provides a more robust "infrastructure" for reliability and expansion; if you're willing to take a chance. While the description of "insanely fast" is a stretch, it is a fast computer for it's category. But, more than fast, the small niceties like easy card addition (a small "door" opens to reveal the card slots, clearly done to make changes easy for corporate IT workers). Or, for example, the easy-open case, clean interior layout, wise placement of hard-drive slots at the bottom of the case and upgraded components - all make for a stable corporate computer that will last through my typical 5-7 year product lifecycle.

Everything you need is there, PCI, PCI Express, Firewire and plenty of USB 2.0 ports; even an old floppy disk for the occasional small file transfer, or emergency boot disk. The only thing I had to add was a wireless network adapter (Rosewill RNX-G300EX/LX), which worked flawlessly. I used the Microsoft Zero Configuration Utility option included on the CD. This wireless card comes with an antenna on a 4 foot cord, which makes placement for best reception easy and its under $20..

The motherboard (Dell) has plenty of room for expansion, with lots of slots, support for 4 Sata drives a massive and quiet 5 inch chip fan along with the usual power-supply fan and front-end fan. All very quiet and cool-running according to my Everest monitoring utility. The 375 watt power supply is adequate for my needs and the dual-monitor Invidia card lets me have my preferred working environment.

In short, a nice machine for the money even at it's original corporate price, but an "insane value" at $285 from EZ Buy Cafe. It came quicker than estimated, was properly packed and the included operating system CD is preferred by me over hard-drive versions. After installation of anti-virus software, a firewall and my personal environmental applications (Iconicity, Roboform and Tweak UI) I was up and running immediately.

I predict increasing success for this business model, where recycled corporate computers are refurbished and given a second life in the consumer market. It appeals to folks like me who enjoy not only a good, well refurbished bargain, but the thought that it helps the ecology in a small, but tangible way. Sure, Tiger and other computer retailers have comparably priced machines, but these have cheap and unreliable power supplies, questionable components and an eye on profit margin rather than quality. A former corporate computer (especially Dells) has to be able to survive in that environment and is more robust for that reason.

All in all: Highly Recommended for novice and expert alike.

This review is from: Dell Optiplex 755 Desktop Computer, Featuring Intel's Fast and Powerful 2.33GHz Core2 Duo Processor, Enough Power for Today and Tomorrow, 3GB DDR2 Interlaced High Performance Memory, Extra Large 250GB Super Fast SATA Hard Drives, Crystal Clear VGA Video, DVDRW/CDRW, Write CD's, Watch and Record DVD Movies, Intregrated Lan/Audio, Windows Xp Professional Restore Disk, Windows 7 Capable (Personal Computers)
I usually wait to write a reveiw until I have owned a refurbished computer for at least a month. However, I am so happy with this purchase that I am writing this after using the machine for ONLY 7 days.

Easily upgraded to Windows 7! Runs better running Windows 7 than it did running XP Professional. Vrey Fast - Great Features & Super Quiet. WEll worth the incovenience of being Super heavy and rather large - but that is indicative of a workgation unit!

Great Buy and if I can figure out a way to afford an upgrade to Quickbooks Pro I will be back to order another to upgrade to Windows 7.

So far so good - could not be happpier - Many thanks!

Dell Precision 380 . The machine is a great machine, however, be ready to do some work on the registry to change a few things. An example is outlook email. As shipped the machine will not remember a password, so you can either change some values in the registry or you can enter your email password each time.
