Good Value Product

Walkan, Hewlett-Packard

  • Summary: I purchased the HP Envy as a replacement for my aged Compaq Presario. The product out of the box looked sleek and nicely designed. Setting it up was a challenge, because as an English speaking American, I could not understand why the booklets had to be in Spanish only; and identifying the external components which were all indicated with a question mark, gave me the impression that the information booklets were prepared by a "MIME".

Hardware OK, Windows 7 installation bad

DandikHP, Hewlett-Packard

  • Summary: The box came on time, worked as expected. I am unhappy with the way they installed, configured, or did something to Windows 7. - On my previous machine clicking on a .ppt file opened it using PowerPoint. On this machine I first have to start PowerPoint for this to work. - My previous machine came will spell checkers for languages I enabled, this one has only English language checker.

Great style and functionality

Berg1946, Hewlett-Packard

  • Summary: What I really like is that I was able to configure this machine exactly the way I wanted, you can't find that any where else. HP really adds a lot of style to their products, this machine is beautiful and runs great. I was a little leery of Windows 8.1 but with some of the new add ons it works fine. I just stay on the desktop. It boots up very fast.

  • Summary: This product is great for its price, I slapped on the AMD A8-6600k processor with 3.9ghz and I expected to be blown away with the speed.There is plenty of other stuff you can put in the computer for a decent price. My product arrived and I was so excited from taking all the packaging out of the box, and I had a giant smile on my face.

  • Summary: Upgraded from a Windows XP machine and I couldn't be happier. Lighting fast! I added a couple of extra features; 12 GB RAM and Microsoft Office Home and Student edition. Wireless keyboard and mouse make this an ideal home office / student set-up.

Unsteady out of the box

Klink, Hewlett-Packard
19 July 2014
  • Summary: I had trouble with the Envy almost immediately. Long story short, would not reboot after a shutdown/power off. Endless loop of repairs and restores to earlier state. Tech support was great, said to send it back and they would replace it. And they did. Second unit had same problem. Everything was fine unless you shut it down. It would restart perfectly, just could not come back from shutdown. Tech support was great. We restored from D Recovery Partition. Same problem.

Core i7? Why is my dual core ten times as fast?

Christopher715, Hewlett-Packard
12 July 2014
  • Summary: "Lightning quick speed"? Well, I must have gotten the 'turtle in the race here", this new computer is much slower than my HP Pavilion from 2007. "Blazing Fast"? Loading web pages takes about 15 seconds, if that's "fast", then HP needs to rethink it's "advert line" as this is NOT living up to my expectations.......At ALL.............
