Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many PCs of a similar age and type to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers.

We compared all the other HDD personal computers to this desktop computer and we think the HP 8300 SFF which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Mini (SSD).

To the reviewer complaining it only has VGA. That's not true. There's Displayport as well, which, with an inexpensive adapter will get you HDMI...

Wish I knew this before telling a client to purchase this exact model from newegg. There wasn't a review that listed this issue at time of purchase...

Good performance until you need to get it fixed quick
Inexpensive for what you get, has displayport. Great warranty
There is a proprietary power supply and proprietary power connector on system board. You cant just go to any store to purchase a power supply and install it. This is true for all Optiplex 3020
The proprietary power supply. Dell's at it again
