5.0 out of 5 stars Fast processor and a lot of ram!, October 22, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2016 HP Pavilion 500 550 High Performance Desktop Computer (AMD A8-6410 Quad-Core 2.0GHz up to 2.4GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Wifi, DVD, Windows 10 Professional) (Certified Refurbished) (Personal Computers)
I was worried about purchasing a refurbished computer not knowing what to possibly expect but the computer looks brand new and you would never know it was refurbished. It contains one of the fastest processors available at an affordable price with twice as much memory as most computers are sold with. This is going to be a great gaming computer. The only thing I did not like about the computer and may seem kind of petty but it has a compact keyboard and an awkward feeling mouse but I just used the keyboard from my old computer. This was also my first experience with Windows 10 and I do have to say I am impressed with the way they brought back the feel of much earlier versions of Windows. Don't expect a bunch of useless software to come with this computer, most of the time people never use it to begin with, you install what you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product for the price., November 3, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this to replace my Dell that died and I am very happy with this computer. It was very easy to set up and we were up and going in no time. It just took me some time to get used to Windows 10 since I had never used it before. We had Windows 7 on the old one. I am looking to buy another one soon to replace another computer upstairs.

This desktop has performed beyond my expectations. I wish I had purchased it sooner. The keyboard and mouse are slimmer in size and easier to navigate. It does everything a more expensive desktop does without the larger price tag.

1.0 out of 5 stars my first venture into "re-conditioned" was a bust., December 7, 2016

this computer was never able to complete a Windows 10 update and it would not shut down. After consulting with Amazon.com they agreed to let me return it for full credit and I bought a different brand as a replacement. Otherwise the computer functioned as expected..
