Summary: This item did take a while to get here but with the weather conditions on the mainland, I understand it could not be helped. This works good and was easy to install. Thank you to the vendor for the follow up. Will consider future purchases again. Very satisfied!
Do not buy a HP Product, as they have gone downhill (made in China , JUNK)

Summary: First of all, I did not buy this desktop from Amazon, rather the HP Store. It was custom made to my specs. It arrived (from China, via Mexico) damaged. The front plastic cover was smashed ! I contacted HP customer service, and they sent me the wrong front cover, so they had to send me another shipment. After about a month, I heard this loud abnormal sound, which turned out to be a bad fan on the graphics card.
Summary: The system works as expected except that the DVD drive sounds like a jet engine when it powers up. It eventually subsides, but it's ridiculously loud. The other complaint is a cheap lightweight keyboard, but I had already had a replacement ready for that. I'll probably just replace the DVD drive.

Summary: 1st of all I was really impressed by the way it was packaged when it arrived at my doorstep. It took a little while longer to get set-up than I was expecting. Once I got it going, i was extremely happy with the speed and the memory that it has. Windows 7 is awesome! I am really enjoying my purchase and the price was right. Thanks Amazon.
Summary: Tower arrived without keyboard or mouse..When I inquired as to their whereabouts, I was asked if I wanted to buy them....Both keyboard and mouse are clearly listed on the contents label on the box but were not included.......
