Summary: Fantastic value for the $$$ this PC has given me the durability to experience modern online gaming at its best, offers a great all in one opportunity for home entertainment, and still has the versatility to operate as a functional home computer for work and research.
Summary: Purchased (2) HP ENVY Phoenix 810qe Desktop computers with the same configuration for family home use. Both computers were delivered ahead of projected delivery date and functioned with absolutely no problem. Computers have been in use for 3 weeks and have taken advantage of the best features of the Windows 8.1 Start Tiles screen and Desktop. Easily customized the Windows Start Tiles and Desktop for my specific applications and eliminated unwanted Tiles and Icons.
Summary: This has met my expectations 100% to date. Perhaps later, I will provide a follow up review which is more detailed. Here is my quick summary: 1. I "married" this to the HP Pavilion 25xi 25 inch LED monitor and the colors, resolution and clarity are astounding. 2. I often have multiple browser windows open, including stock/commodity market real time monitors open; or, multiple fantasy baseball league real time game casts going on (ESPN, Fan Duel, etc.
Summary: Stay away from HP desktops! I purchased my desktop from HP and it crashed within three months. After sending it in for a new motherboard, the computer was returned to me and still did not function correctly. After having enough of the countless hours on the phone with HP trying to fix the issues, I was told that my machine was out of warranty and they could only offer me a partial refund.
