Summary: I have owned this unit (HP Pavilion 500-c60) for about a year now and I can tell you it has been nothing but problems. Every month it seems to be something new and different. Now the monitor will not turn off and go to sleep. I have to reset the time and restart the unit to get it to work.
Summary: This PC has been nothing but trouble. Windows has never worked properly. I have done the recovery steps 3 times now, and still there are issues. The 8GB memory is not enough, you will have to upgrade. Good luck if you buy this product. It is nothing like I had hoped it would be.
From out of the box this computer has been slower ...

Summary: From out of the box this computer has been slower than anything I've ever experienced. It's been awful. And now I'm being told that I can't return it because the 30 days I've spent trying to make it work was the only time I had to return it. I'm VERY dissatisfied and EXTREMELY frustrated.
Summary: This was a piece of garbage. When initially turned on it said there were 2000+ updates to download. Crashed the machine and it was never any good. Downloaded just a few updates at a time, but shockwave crashed all the time and HPCCEMENT never worked.
This computer doesn't upgrade well like the box advertises

Summary: This computer doesn't upgrade well like the box advertises. I should have stuck with Dell after seeing how much trouble some of my family has with HP but I read some of the specs on this computer and it seemed great for the price. I was wrong. Pass on this POS.
