Summary: This is the most amazingly poor quality product I have seen! I have purchased many computers and this one is the reason I will never purchase another HP ! Opened the box once FedX found meand was shocked to see the keyboard cheapest one I have ever seen! Started up and locked up oh what a sign! Restarted and did all the updated but this so called keyboard has got to go!
Pros: seems fast i actually like the audio blue ray player 32 gig ram
Cons: poor quality case poor/cheap keyboard cheap mouse
Summary: I have the same problem like many other that return these desktop, the IDT audio chipset is defective, after turning on from OFF or Sleep mode, the audio output keeps resetting at Digital Output (S/PDIF) as Default Device, and will not recognize any other like front or back green mini plugs for speakers & headphone, HDMI.. it keeps displayed "Not plugged in" and won't let you configure anything.#I run HDMI out to monitor and green 3.5 mini plug to powered speakers#.
Pros: costco outstanding return policy. this one is loaded with overkill stuffs
Cons: problem right out the box that can't be fixed.
Summary: Piece of crap!!!!!!!!!! Turn the computer on an first thing I get is an error msg. After two hours on the phone with hp customer support in India, they tell me they have to restore the original factory settings. Wait a minute it came in from the factory today and this is the first time I am attempting t use it.So anyway, everything is reinstalled and I am able to sign onto windows.
Good desktop for both work and play if you don't mind the looking

Summary: I have been using it for a few days and have configured it as my working desktop and it works very well. Powerful CPU and graphics card make it efficient for developing and designing. What surprises me most is that this desktop comes with Bluetooth connection and Wireless. You dont need to buy a wireless network card or bluetooth adapter to use Wi-Fi in your home or office. And it's more convenient to use a bluetooth keyboard.
