Summary: I am not a tech person however I purchased this unit August of 2013 and it "crashed" on January 2014. Up to January the unit was working fine. Then in January it started to take longer and longer to boot up. I thought it might be a virus or some such however I was using a security suite along with MALEWAREBYTES and SuperAntiSpyware. Before the unit completely quite I received a blue screen with the message "this computer needs repairing.
Summary: The computer so far is incredible Quiet, Excellent performance, the graphic card surprise me cause i thought i will have to change it right away, but BF# on high run smoothly and without any kind of problems, Skyrim as well on Ultra no problems, Rome Total war II high, and some image editor and 3d hardware as 3D max and Cinema 4D the process of rendering is really really fast, in the future I will upgrade the graphic card but the rest of the components works perfectly,...
Summary: Very happy with this computer so far. Set up was flawless and quick. This unit has lots of USB 2 & 3 ports with 2 on the top for wireless receivers and charging your IPhone! The graphics card is amazing and along with my new HP x2301 23-Inch Micro Thin LED Monitor I get some beautiful results. It glows red which is really irrelevant until you turn the lights off. Then it becomes AWESOME! So far this machine is fast, quite, dependable and Righteous!
Summary: Powerful, and exactly what I wanted to upgrade my 3 year old computer. I hate Windows 8 though in that it makes me re-log on windows after short times out, though I have searched online for solution....it didn't work. Still have to re log on....tiresome!
Summary: Anyone that's scared of Windows 8, please take your fears elsewhere. This review is about the product purchased. And that said, there's an immediate flaw - as another reviewer mentioned (after I purchased it, naturally, I realized this) the product details are incorrect. This model does NOT come with the liquid cooling system, one of the main reasons I was willing to drop nine-hundred bucks on a system here. Thanks, HP.
Summary: The CRAY-2 supercomputer ran so hot during calculations that the Fluroinert coolant surrounding its circuits boiled and bubbles would stream past viewing windows milled into its sides. Critics suggested that Seymour Cray sold the units more on the strength of a stirring supercomputer description in Tom Clancy's 'The Hunt for Red October' than any performance advantage of massively parallel processing.
Summary: I've purchased many HP computers, printers and monitors over the years and while they always have been of good quality, the experience of dealing with HP hasn't always been the best. I find myself surprised to be writing a 5-star review of a product that arrived with a problem, but HP recovered so well, that it would be unfair to give this anything less than a strong review.
