Product Review (submitted on 22 September 2017):
This is the third of these Dell Optiplex systems I've owned and they are excellent value for money, well designed, well built and clever how they fit so much in a Small Form Factor (SFF) unit.
This system is more than adequate for most peoples home and small business requirements, I'd recommend at least 4mb Ram and a 60mb min HDD.
With this system I decided to go for a Solid State Disc (SSD) rather than than a hard Drive (HDD) as the hard drive was the weak link in my previous 2 systems! This also runs very quiet as you get no hard drive whirring just the sound of the cooling fans which also are quiter than my previous system as they run very slow most of the time.
The only difficulty I had with Microdream is their use of an online message service - I prefer a direct e-mail service anytime and it's normally a much quicker response - especially when you can just hit the 'reply' button!
Whilst I had bought my previous 2 systems through Amazon and e-Bay I decided to buy direct as I wanted my own configuration and not just the particular system configured to be advertised on Amazon/eBay. (Though I would normally advise people to buy through Amazon as they have extra guarantees and a quick dispute/refund service - but this normally costs a bit extra!)
Overall then I would buy again from Microdream but I would be wary of some other direct sales as they have no backup (One supplier didn't even answer my e-mails!). Paul L ☺
