enough with the PCs with AMD CPUs. through us some Core 2 Duo once in a while.


#5

Why would you get this giant clunky thing when you could’ve gotten the slimline a few weeks ago? The only reason I see s the ease of upgrading, but still…

65/100 via AlaTest reviews doesn’t leave me pining for it. But the price is certainly nice…

Read what comes in the “Box” what’s missing?


#9

4200 speed RAM…very slow. also, more expensive to upgrade. should check if mobo supports faster RAM (5400, etc.)


#10

well for that price, it would be nice to add a computer in the box!


#11

I wonder… how this computer would run with a 16 camera security system card?


#12

It doesn’t look like the remote control is included in this deal. I’m so dam lazy I can’t get up off the couch to turn stuff on and off sometimes. This could be a deal killer for lazy folk like me. If you are in shape it isn’t a big deal. OTHO It seems to suppport DDR2 PC2-5300


#13

This deal should include the remote control. I bought the same product a month to 2 months ago and it shipped complete with all the shown parts.

OTOH, I just had delivered to me yesterday a Cybertronics core 2 duo 3.0 ghz gaming computer, with a GeForce 8500 GT videocard, for less than $700 shipped UPS 3day. (with $3 rush processing).

Reviews are mixed, but mine worked right out of the box and I like how it works. It’s not a media center PC, so the comparison is off, but mine is new. a TV Tuner card (if perferred), can be had for less than $50.

Check the stats, I think it’s well worth the extra $250.

Buy.com has a disclaimer: “In Stock Soon”

B&H gives me a dead link: " Sorry, no items were found matching your search request for “HEA6230N*”. Please see the search tips below or you may want to try a new search."

Amazon’s link works, but the description scares me: “Used-Very Good”.
Plus, Amazon only has 2 in stock.

Also, Buy.com is recertified, dead link on B&H and Amazons is used, for similar pricing.

(Oh, and woots deal is also refurbed).

Who buys Desktop PCs anymore?


#17

My situation may be unique, but I bought the 8200 refurb and it’s slower than you would expect. It has only got vga out, and has never really played video well - even off of it’s own HD. It seems to skip a lot, playing choppy audio for no reason at all. I’m about to do a total restore, but it’s always done this. I should have returned it when I first bought it.


#18

Why is this still using PS/2 connectors for mouse and keyboard? The entire rest of the planet seems to have moved to USB years ago.


#19

in for one, thanks yahoo, thanks woot


#20

This is refurbed? I coulda guessed but I don’t see it on the front page…
