This was mainly Australia Post's fault.
The computer's metalwork is dented where the graphics card & other pcb's might go.
The keyboard had it's left hand stand missing, & I cannot use a keyboard while it's sitting flat.
The last problem, the mouse had a faulty left click button, & a completely dead right click button.
They both went to the bin. Luckily I had a working wireless keyboard & mouse.
The computer works, is fast enough for my needs, & so far so good.
I probably would'nt buy from these guy's again.
Started first time , did the configurations for new user and installed all the other stuff i wanted on it so my father-in-law could use. Also impressed that the windows 10 image appears to be patched pretty much up to date as well.
It was however disappointing that the main cover screw was missing and the lid fell off during unpacking!
Also 3 of the 4 rubber feet were also missing so that the case did not sit level on the desk and scratched the desktop surface.
The mouse and Keyboard supplied appeared brand new as was the power cord. I had to purchase a special display port to HDMI monitor cord as there was no mention of it being non standard.
A good deal but the issues could have been fixed before shipping!
Otherwise product is as good as new and works perfectly.

I purchased this machine primarily because my previous HP machine that I had updated to Windows 10 from Windows 7 (when MS was offering that free upgrade) started 'hanging' every time MS issued an update. I could not seem to resolve that conflict. I was looking for a not too expensive route to get me back online with updates again. First off ... let me say that the machine arrived in excellent condition. I wasn't disappointed there. Once I finally got all my applications, favorites, utilities, etc; installed on this machine, everything seemed to function satisfactorily. Now for the part where I downgrade my rating. This refurbished machine was advertised as having an Intel Core i5 processor as well as the Windows 10 "Professional" edition OS. It came with neither of these. The specs were one of the primary reasons I selected this machine. Frankly I'm surprised Amazon allows this sort of 'bait & switch' tactic. It's clearly false advertising. (see my attachments) You can see what was advertised and what came delivered on the machine.
It's a perfectly zippy computer on its own, but dropping in a decent graphics card (it appears the 1050 Ti is the most this system can handle, particularly with regard to its proprietary 240-watt power supply) has given me a system that well exceeds my expectations and runs video games better than any other device I've owned, including my past computers and home consoles.
I did have one minor issue with the system when it arrived: the fan on the power supply made a curious grinding noise that sounded like it was going out. To fix it, I slid a screwdriver into the back of the power supply to stop the fan from spinning, then started the computer. After a few moments, I pulled the screwdriver out, and the fan sped up to its max speed, likely in an attempt to rapidly cool the system. After spinning at such high speed, the fan stopped making the noise at lower speeds, and I haven't heard the grinding noise nor heard the fan spin up to its highest speed since. It's been over five months since then, and I haven't had a single issue to report otherwise.
It's also worth noting that the computer shipped in a box indicating that it was a Microsoft Certified Refurbished system. This isn't (or wasn't) listed in the product description, but for some users, this certification is added peace of mind.
Edit: ten months have passed since I first started using this PC, and nearly everything is still working perfectly. I say "nearly" because after months of ignoring the system's front-facing headset port, I finally plugged one in only to find that the port doesn't carry microphone audio as indicated. For me, this is no big deal. Otherwise, the system has been a treat. I installed a PCI wireless network adapter and an LG-branded Blu-ray burner, both of which have been working flawlessly. My 1050 has been also running smoothly with absolutely no problems. To be honest, I've had fewer problems with this system than any other PC I've ever owned; granted, most of my others were built from the ground up. My experience has been such a success that I even convinced a buddy of mine to buy his own 8300 several months back, and from what I've heard, his system has been functioning perfectly as well.
These machines should be reliable for years to come but the included 5 year old Seagate Hard Drive would give me pause. With any older machine you start to worry about the mechanical hard drive after a period of time.. this is no different. I factored in the purchase of a 250GB SSD into this which makes the machine fly even faster anyway.
Overall this makes more sense (at least to me) than buying a new machine that's less powerful.
Condition: OK this is where things get dicey. The ad promises:
and certified by the manufacturer or by a third-party refurbisher to look and work like new, with limited to no signs of wear.
Ha! They are literally grabbing these things from expired leases, re-imaging the drives with a default WIndows 10 and kicking them out the door.. perhaps literally. Sure the machine had scratches and nicks.. a bit more than 'normal' use but whatever. Definitely not 'like new'. It also had a dented case.. so bad the cover wouldn't close without having someone bend the latch to make it fit. It's going under the desk whatever I don't care but this is hardly a well cared for re-manufacture this was done quick, cheap and dirty.
What really got me though was the smell. Out of the box this thing REEKED of curry. It was so bad it made the entire room smell like an Indian Restaurant. It took me about 3 days of a combo of Vinegar, Baking Soda and letting it 'air' out to get the smell down to acceptable levels. Obviously quality isn't a big concern here.
Bottom Line: If you are looking for a cheap, decent desktop but don't care if it looks like it was kicked down the stairs then stored in a box chicken tikka for 6 months then you'll be OK.
I was disappointed with the size of the unit. Size is shown in metric which is not a system I have readily adopted. Thus, where I was expecting a smaller unit, this thing turned out to be larger then I wanted. (my fault entirely). The vendor provided a small wifi dongle with the computer since there is none built in. Not a big deal but it does use up 1 usb port.
The computer is snappy though win 10 seems to load rather slowly compared to what I was expecting. (I almost never boot into windows and am much happier with Linux systems). I am rather disappointed with the supplied mouse and keyboard. (uses up 2 usb ports) Even though the mouse is a usb one, it seems to hesitate when moved and at times it can be difficult to pose the mouse curser precisely where you want it. Other than that, it seems to work very well. The fact that I could not get the computer to boot from a usb thumb drive was annoying. This means I will always have to burn to a DVD if I choose to try an alternate OS. DVD's are cheap enough but they are throw away's once used. A usb stick is rewrite-able and can be used time and again with different content.
as well as FortNite, the new game VALORANT as well as countless others in max settings 150+FPS.
Windows 10 Pro as advertised, nice keyboard and mouse(not the fanciest but an upgrade from my older ones.
only thing i can say is no WIFI Adapter was included as per the advertisement, not an issue to me. i game so i run hardline to it, altho it woulda been nice to have in my backpocket incase i needed it later. 5Stars nonetheless.
2. The PC did not come with any software included and, as I knew it would, came without a monitor.
I had to purchase MS Office separate, which made the price of the computer as expensive as a new HP all-in-one I had purchased earlier.
3. Poor features, ugly design, seems very old.
It has crashed three times already.
I like the fact it has a number of USB ports that are easy to access.
