Summary: We just purchased several of these to replace older machines in our Graphics department. Performance is excellent, runs Adobe CS5 / CS5.5 flawlessly with no video lag whatsoever. Nothing newer in this price range can touch this machine's performance and quality.
Summary: **Avoid this computer at all cost** if you want peace of mind and a good night's sleep ! This computer is way more problematic than Vista it's a piece of junk. It came with windows 7, 8GB of ROM, an Intel processor etc, however that is not the problem. Nobody knows what the problem is especially HP customer service which recomends performing a bunch of test that always come back clean.
Summary: We all have seen these reviews about how our computers can handle all of our intense graphics programs, hardcore games, and multi-tasking, but no reviews on the real deal, the way this machine handles porn. I am here to tell you, the amount of porn that I have pushed through this beast is astronomical; it never lets me down. I can surf so many different sites at once, with multiple browsers open, while my computer is installing a program or just downloading other porn.
Summary: This is a really great HTPC. HDMI hookup works great with my toshiba HDTV. Plenty of memory and processor speed to perform the HTPC functions with smooth video and quick performance of the Media center Software.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Easy To Setup, Easy To Use, Fast, Great Software Bundle, Quality Accessories, Reliable Performance, Sleek Design
Summary: I purchased this HPE-140f after a lot of research and it seemed a great choice. For the first 3 hours this pc shined and I loved using it; however, the next 6 hours proved to be another story. Skip to the end, I had to return this pc due to a bad graphics card and I am awaiting its replacement. I really loved many of the features and price point so I requested an exchange and hopefully, my next pc will not be a lemon and I can update this review to a positive one.
Summary: Have been really happy with this PC. Boots up fast, very stable. Compared to my last desktop (a Dell, crappy from day 1) this one has been a dream. I don't use the PC for gaming or anything too intensive (though I'm sure it could handle it), but for basic day to day office productivity, video, stuff like that, top notch. Love Windows 7 as well. Microsoft got this one right.
Summary: I'm NOT a computer geek, just know enough to research and price for a good value. Looked for about 2 weeks before finding HPE150F through Amazon. For what I paid, it can't be beat! Was looking for 4-core, 2.5-2.8GHz CPU; 6-8GB DDR2 RAM; 750GB HDD; 1GB video card; Win 7 home prem OS; and the usual niceties. This HPE far exceeded expectations, and for low $500 range! It's not a gamer, but for my use is very, very top end of what I ever dreamed.
Summary: After About 6 Months no problems I have built my computers for the past 12 years or so, something I probably won't do again as it no longer seems cost effective or worth the time - at least for me. I rate this computer highly for these simple reasons: I have had zero problems with it. It worked out of the box with no confusion and did not come with preinstalled garbage or CDs that take hours to figure out if they have any value.
Summary: HP really impressed me this time. This computer is the best one that I have ever used. This computer does not freeze at all. I always run the disk cleanup. The keyboard and mouse that came with it are excellent as well. All of my programs worked with Windows 7, which by the way is a pleasure to use. It is much better than XP. The only thing that did not work was my printer, which I didn't like anyway, but my new one worked with it just fine. This computer is fast.
