I am/was about to buy an older (2011-2012) Dell Optiplex 390 with the i5 (2400) processor. Whether I buy it or not will have a lot to do with what I learn here.
I found a lengthy thread on SPICEWORKS about a whole host of problems with the 390; power supply failures, bulging, melting capacitors, outdated Bios problems, bad MBs, problems getting them out of deep sleep mode and on and on and on.
The odd thing is I did not find any other info elsewhere that outlined these problems. This long thread (114 posts) almost seemed like "pile on inexpensive Dell computers."
Does anyone her know if the Optiplex 390 Mini Towers are really dogs?
I have only until late Friday afternoon to do this deal or back out of it. So please help me out with this if you can.
